Thank you Bill for providing the details of your experience. It was very unfortunate that your evening was not what you were expecting. I am glad we were able to connect and have you in for our Valentine's Dinner on February 18th, and that it was a great experience per your review on our Oakwood Resort TripAdvisor page. More

I've been here quite a few times. The food is good. Lots of variety and taste. Drinks are always good. Service is lacking. There always seems to be a new face, which appears to continue consistency in being trained. Great view of the golf course. Awesome patio.

Had dinner here late Friday night. Was lots of groups in for dinner. We enjoyed the food, but people at the bar were very loud. The portions were huge. If you order the pizza be prepared to take it home or share☺️ It was delicious but too much for one.

We have had meals at Dave's several times this summer. We love their patio and their burgers. We have found the service also to be very good. The drink orders are taken quickly and they are always ready to offer a beer sample if you need help deciding. On one occasion the bartender served us the wrong craft beer -... More
