My standard order is the fabulous grilled salmon and a double order of the grilled squash, always perfectly cooked. My friend & I order a piece of the chocolate pie and of the lemon pie, cut them in half, and enjoy a some of both. These taste just like our grandmas' pies. We always try to arrive before 5:30 so...

Food was great, service a little slow we waited almost 10 minutes before someone came to our table so we could order drinks. Don't order sweet tea! It's a mixture of orange juice and other juices. Would be ok if you like that kind of tea. A southern restaurant should always have southern sweet tea! Bread was great but out... More

Dean’s restaurant in Oak Ridge, Tennessee is by far my favorite place to eat. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, as well as the food. The amount of food you receive is unbelievable for the price. If you live in town or just passing through, and want to feel like family, stop in and see Lynn and her wonderful staff.... More

This place is amazing. Love the fact that the food is FRESH and so delicious and servings are huge! My husband & I ordered the roast beef and it was like my mama's used to taste. There were only two things that made the experience less than perfect. First, we were seated on the far right and could not see... More

Looking for some good, healthy, (not everything fried) home cooking. Found it. A little tough to find in Oak RIdge, but worth the effort, and the drive from Knoxville. TIP - Go early, they close at 8. TIP - unless you want to take home left overs, under order and plan to share, servings are huge. TIP - Check out... More

Busy place, very friendly staff that works well together. Daily specials,with lots of sides to choose from and the serving are large, we had the ribs and pulled pork sandwich, which were very flavorful and prepared well. The Caesars salad was very good and the mac and cheese was great. They offer at least 10 to 15 deserts to choose... More

Dean's is located in a small shopping center near the hospital and medical buildings. The Oakridge playhouse is in same plaza. It would be a good place to eat before the show, if at the hospital or if you are in town. We went there for lunch recently. Family type restaurant. I had the turkey dinner and my husband had...

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
