Dined with family members I had not seen for some time. The service was excellent, quick and efficient, as well as friendly. Food came quickly and was very good. Ambience is family style with a subdued noise level for easy conversation. All in all, Dean's provided a great night of comfort food and family catching up.

Thank Dean V

I ordered the Catfish. It was breaded in corn meal. It was very good. It was a great gluten free option for me. The side of french fries was very generous.

I was VERY impressed with the vegetable plate! The flavors and seasonings were perfect and everything was fresh! Great service. The only downside is that they don't serve any alcoholic beverages; however, you are allowed to "brown bag". And, as typical in Oak Ridge, they are mopping the floors and shutting down by 8:00pm. Even on a Friday night.

The menu is broad enough to satisfy any palate and the food is not ordinary but cooked with class. You will not leave wanting and the experience is satisfying. The wait staff is friendly and the food is phenomenal. The times we have been there was no selection of southern sweet tea but plenty of alternatives.

Wonderful, home cooked meals and fabulous deserts. If you were to eat there every day , you would see everyone in Oak Ridge at least once a week. Don't eat the Italian Cream Cake... It's mine

Very good "home cooked" type meal. Nothing fancy but well prepared..You can expect things such as turkey and dressing, meat loaf, fish, and a variety of changing specials

While the food was great, the wait to be seated was extremely long. I was part of a large party, but we had called ahead to make arrangements

Thank John S

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.
