Matthew was our server tonight. As always he was polite, attentive and engaging, of our table and the others he was serving; a fine waiter! Always asking if we needed anything else. The French Onion soup has always been the best I have ever had, but tonight it was heavenly!! Kudos to the 48 hour process of cooking it and... More

I've been going to Glenwood Oaks for about 30 years. It is a great place for family gatherings and special occasions. The food is fantastic and moderately priced. There is something for everyone on the menu. I took my daughter here a week ago for dinner. The ribs (my favorite) were outstanding! If you like ribs, this is the place... More

Glenwood Oaks has some of the best food. The atmosphere is nice, the staff is great and the price is right! If you enjoy crab legs Thursday is the day to visit Glenwood Oaks Restaurant. They serve you 2.5-lbs of crabs legs, choice of potato or rice, salad or slaw and warm bread. If you're not a shell fish lover... More

They are celebrating 42 years in business and the server brought us complimentary liver pate. The pate was very good. After a couple of cocktails, we ordered our meals. two lobster... More

Glenwood Oaks has been serving the community since 1974. Although I was a frequent patron in the 80s it has been 25 years since I was there last due to our move to another state.The atmosphere is the same - clean, bright with very attentive staff. The owner circulates and interacts with the patrons. A great family atmosphere. Food wise... More

The service is friendly and the food is consistent. They give a discount and a free dessert if it's your birthday which is a nice gesture. I definitely recommend the ribs....and it comes with a complimentary bib!

The double baked potato was delicious but I did notice that the first time it was in a potato skin the second time it was in a round shape -- still good though. My husband had a salad he just loved.... More
