Second visit for Sunday brunch, and the food was very good from the egg station & carving table to all the sides offered whether it was for breakfast or lunch. Some of my favorites are the eggs benedict done to perfection, the beet salad is wonderful and the mac and cheese was very creamy and delicious. Took 3 guests who had never been before and all enjoyed their selections and would come back again.

We were seated in an annex room. The room was cold and devoid of any atmosphere. We were on a table set for six ( there were two in our party) The food was good, but, cold. The servers seemed to he inexperienced, but, they were accommodating and pleasant. The experience was at best, underwhelming. But, we would be willing to give it another try.

The food is out of this world good. The chef is so lovely and makes sure to touch base with each person dining. The ambience is very odd. It is SO quiet that its almost awkward and the decor is very dated and overly formal. It's confusing. We love to go in the warm weather because we can eat outside but when it's cold and we have to sit in the dining room, it's pretty weird. We will certainly return because yum yum yum.

We were staying at the Ridges Resort with friends so we made reservations for dinner at the Oakes. The restaurant, but in particular the cuisine, exceeded our expectations. The room was beautiful and quiet with fire going in the fireplace. Wait staff was friendly and efficient If a bit inexperienced. The chef was outstanding as was his menu. All four of us had different entrées and they were all delicious. We can’t wait to visit again.

Sweet Jenna was our delightful waitperson again-we we’re thrilled. Chef Adam made a delicious sushi tray for the table to share. Yum! The sushi was so filling my husband and I both had the beet salad and butternut squash soup, they were both delicious. The couple with us had the salmon and the scallops. They declared them excellent!! Of course we were served the signature sweet cream biscuits with a homemade butter blend that are to die for. OMGooodness! The small taste of grits and ? served in between was delightful. Then, the shot glass dessert of the night was served at the end. Everything was so very delicious !

I have been to The Oaks several times and it only gets better each time. The chef is top-notch, our service was excellent and the ambiance was perfect. As an Atlanta native, I can be a bit of a food snob. I chose The Oaks to host my birthday with several friends who made the trip from Atlanta. We were all more than pleased with everything. It was a great evening and will hopefully tempt more of my Atlanta friends to come up to our beautiful North GA mountains.

The service and food were excellent. The waitress was very attentive. The pork fritters and pumpkin soup appetizers were amazing. The fresh baked biscuits with herb butter were tasty. And the main courses were excellent. I had the venison which was cooked to perfection and presented well. The chef placed the sliced venison on a bed of charred sliced cauliflower which was placed on top of a bed of wilted spinach over sautéed onions and sweet white raisins...yum! My wife had a grilled ribeye that was also cooked perfectly and presented along with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The chef came out to check on us and other diners personally and sent out small butters between courses as a courtesy.

Gem of a find in an unexpected place. Reminiscent of fine restaurants in Atlanta, New York our San Francisco in Hiawassee / Young Harris, GA. Who would have thought?

In between our courses (which were cooked to perfection), the chef regularly appeared with little dishes of wild creative off-the-wall offerings that kept this dinner party enthralled. Our guests just could not believe it. Word needs to get out on this best kept secret in the Hiawassee - Young Harris area. An unexpected gem to be found in this neck of the woods.

New chef is definately creative and all dishes were excellent. The Wednesday sushi was a true value. We thought the portions were slightly small for the prices. (Except the sushi which was a LOT for the price).
For us, the portions were large enough but I suppose other's that may agree with my price comment, may prefer larger portions at the same price ? Catch 22 ?
We will certainly continue to dine here at least every few weeks as it is !
Servers appeared to be new at their jobs and probably 'new' to this type of food, but were well trained and working hard to do a good job.

Food was fantastic! Our waitress was also great, and it was only her second night working. The downfall was the kitchen and bar. It took a ridiculous amount of time for drinks and food to arrive. Our meal took 2.5 hours, most of which was spent waiting. We will go back, under the assumption that maybe someone called in sick. If not, they need to staff the kitchen and bar with more help.

A group of us tried the Oaks Lakeside Kitchen for the first time for my son's birthday on a Saturday evening. We were given a choice of inside or outside and choice of tables (much appreciated). The food was excellent. We had filets, scallops, salmon. We tried both salads. All were exceptional. The waiter was new and very busy. We had to wait 15 minutes for a second drink, etc. I know he tried his hardest and will soon be a 5 star waiter!

We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and stated so on the reservation. This was never acknowledged by the staff. We felt the food was just mediocre. We arrived at opening at 11:00 am and were told we would have to wait a few minutes, as they were not yet ready. Once we were seated, we waited for several minutes before going to the buffet, only to find out that several of the dishes had no serving spoons. Overall, we felt this buffet was overpriced for the quality and type of food. The only seafood was oily, overcooked salmon - no shrimp. Also, no prime rib. At $25.00 per person, the coffee and soda should have been included. We were very surprised when we got our bill and saw that the beverages (no alcohol) were an additional charge. The Brasstown Valley Resort nearby has a much better Sunday brunch at a more reasonable price.
