Relied on Trip Advisor reviews today and went to the Oakwood Cafe during a trip to Dalton. The place was packed but service was fast and friendly. The food was clearly homemade, not frozen. We were a party of 4 and everyone was pleased with their meals. Nothing fancy but good old fashioned comfort food of a high quality. We'll... More

My wife and I were in the Dalton area for a near by event and asked the desk clerk at our hotel for a local dining recommendation. She told us the Oakwood Cafe is where she and other locals go so we thought we'd give it a try. This is a seat yourself establishment and offered a very casual and... More

This is a home cooking heaven. So many "home cooking" places serve food that is overcooked, greasy, unappealing or all three but Oakwood Cafe, which specializes in meat plus 2-3 sides, is a gem. Each day of the week the entrees and the sides vary, although not totally. IN addition, it is possible to get southern favorites like barbecued ribs... More

Oakwood is a hometown favorite where all the locals go for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Great selection...choose from "meat and 3", sandwiches, salads, and soups. Great food and friendly service.

We asked our hotel desk for a recommended. They immediately said "Oakwood Cafe". Well worth it. Awesome service, super friendly and super fast. Prices are incredibly reasonable and the food is top notch. I had the pork chops, pulled pork, man n cheese and corn casserole. Every bite was excellent. The peach cobbler was awesome as well. My only disappointment... More

Like many, we stopped in Dalton on our recent return from Florida. By the expressway (I75) there are many of the typical chain restaurants and we often frequent them. But on review of other Travel Advisor reviews we took the very short drive into town to the Oakwood. This is a small clean town with angle parking on the main... More
