We have been going to Oakdale for years and love it. I can't believe I have not gotten around to writing a review. Leslie takes great pride in owning Oakdale and it shows. There are always specials that are out of the box for this area. One favorite was a Bourbon Glazed Pork Chop (seriously put it on the regular menu!). Soft shell crab, and fun takes on normal menu items like steaks. The atmosphere is fantastic and they are always giving back to the community. We love Oakdale and hope that it is around for years to come. Now if they could only figure out a way for boat parking on Lake Freeman even if it meant a short walk.... that would be fantastic.

This is mainly a bar, but there is a family entrance. Good smelt, catfish, burgers, etc. Pretty good service and friendly.

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!

A friend took us to the Dam Inn. It was good, in a bar food kind of way. Nothing spectacular, but nothing terrible either. I did enjoy the location next to the dam, and it had a good atmosphere. Service was spot-on. We don't have occasion to be in that area often, but would visit again if we are.
