I visit Deans every time I go to Oak Ridge. It was recommended by the managers at WestGate Lodging and it was as good as they told me it would be. The sweet tea is different but good. It has an orange flavor to it....More

Delicious food and make sure to visit Lynn in the bakery for sweet treats to go. The menu is a great selection of Southern comfort food and the service was very friendly. I recently made the drive from Knoxville to get dessert to go.

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.
