We love Oakdale! Their "Indiana Lobster" broiled catfish is AMAZING along with the Walleye. Steve (bartender) is great at making drinks. Portion sizes are good and prices aren't bad at all.

Love the Catfish filets, they're always amazing! Steak is the best deal around and the best place to get one if you're not in the mood for fish!
