Long story short; waited a really long time for our food (50 minutes after we ordered) had to get it to go because our ten month old was ready for bed. Waitress did not apologize at all, came home to find out I had been charged $6.50 for sauteed mushrooms!! The real problem with Oh Dennis is there is not... More

Worth waiting go a table. This is a hole in the wall venue that delivers great ribs, steaks, pork fries. Plastic plates. Simple decor. Probably bad for general health. But very good. No frills. Great servers. Go and enjoy

Oh Dennis has the most outstanding Ribs! We live about 1 & 1/2 hrs away and totally worth the drive! If your lucky enough to be there on a night they have Banana cake take a slice home! It's wonderful! Get there early the place gets packed fast and they don't take reservations.

This is what I refer as an above dive restaurant. The ribs are OK, but they are not going win a rib cook off....the pork chop and filets are quality.....salads are fresh and crisp....best blue cheese dressing around...you can buy to take home. Deserts are meh....nothing super. Serving everything on paper plates is pathetic. The son of the original owner... More

While the building doesn't look like much, the food is outstanding. That is why they don't take reservations, it is first come first seated and worth the wait when you have to. The ribs are the very best as well is everything else, and don't forget to take some of the home made BBQ sauce home with you. Open for... More

Have been dining at Oh Dennis's for more year than I can remember. The food is outstanding! They have a great variety of meals from ribs to fish. They have combo plates so you can have ribs with a steak or "pig chops". Great bar, terrific food casual atmosphere. Come on in and be impressed! If the food is so... More

Slightly quirky rib joint. Best ribs in town, best bacon wrapped fillet I've had. One of their specialties is mahi mahi. Quirky starts in entering through what most people would consider the back door. All the walls are decorated with neon beer signs and that is the main lighting for the dining area. All dinners are served on foam plates... More

Being local we are lucky to have such an amazing place for ribs. Steaks are wonderful, the chicken fingers rock! If you're in town, check them out!

We had the small rack for an appetizer, then lake perch for dinner. It was just what a classic fish fry should be: fresh fish, simply prepared, served with a choice of potatoes and salad or slaw. Nothing fancy, just good food prepared well. We're really not into the bar scene, but wound up really liking this place. Although it's... More
