I don't have anything really negative to say about this place other than it's always crowded. The food is pretty good, but not the best BBQ I've had -- it certainly doesn't justify the wait. For really great BBQ with a wide range of authentic southern sides, I prefer iBar-b-q Express just south of the intersection of 466A and 441, which is a small, family owned place. They not only have great BBQ but catfish and brisket as well.

We eat at Oakwood in Lady Lake quite often. There's almost always a line, but it moves quickly and it's worth the wait. My husband and I both think the ribs are some of the best we've ever had. The meat falls off the bone and they have good flavor. Make sure to try the corn fritters for a sweet bite. They bring them with honey but they are just as good with Ranch dressing, it adds some savory to the sweet. Their grilled fish sandwich is also delicious.

This was the closest restaurant to the hotel we were staying at so we decided to walk there. It was a busy, obviously popular with the locals, which is always a good sign.
It was a BBQ place, serving similar menu items as Sonny's, but the food was much better than Sonny's. the meat was plentiful and tender and the sides were tasty and hot
The service was efficient and friendly and the restaurant was tastefully decorated, I would recommend this place

We had heard so much about Oakwood Smokehouse & Grill we had to drive all the way from Ocala to give this restaurant a try. Corn Fritters were great. Fried String Beans were delicious, The Baby Back Ribs were the best I ever ate. My husband had a cheeseburger that was outrageously good. We will be back.
