Dean's Restaurant is one of the better places to eat in Oak Ridge. Southern cooking with wood grilled meats and vegetables. Affordable prices with generous portions. Can get very busy for lunch and dinner. Check out the daily specials and assortment of baked goods.

Was given a gift certificate for here and was pleasantly surprised. It is very big inside and we were seated and served quickly. The fresh rolls were hot and both our meals were delicious.

Had the chicken and dumplings" asparagus and Mac and cheese. All of it was great. A friend had the brisket, asparagus and Mac and cheese and she was very happy as well. The only disappointment was they were out of all their cakes. Bummer

We eat at Dean's often as it is near my office. The food is always good and the service excellent. I have never ordered anything I didn't like and I have had almost everything on the menu.

Food was mediocre. My simple order of salad nicoise first came without the salmon and after I asked for it I never got it! Sure wish they served wine!

Very casual. It's popular, so sometimes there is a short wait. It has a varied menu and it is all good.

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.
