As always the food was great! Service is great as well. Love the food and the sweet tea. Waitress never let my glass run out. Prices are reasonable and I'd recommend it to anyone.

I heard great things about this place so I tried it for lunch. It did not disappoint! Great home style cooking with chicken, ribs, and barbecue. Plus a wonderful assortment of vegetables. The BBQ plate is great....best I've had in a long time. The plates come with one meat and two vegetables plus a bread. Very filling for lunch and... More

Oak Level is a good little local place to eat. They have good burgers as well as all kinds of sides and other items like great friend pork chops. It is a little gem that people need to try.

They have the best tenderloin and cheese biscuit anywhere! It is traditional southern cooking. When you go into the restaurant, stop by the cooks' window and ask Brad for his gluten free menu. He loves a good laugh.

This little gem is not on the way to anywhere and if you blink twice you will miss it. They didn't spend a lot of money on signs, so be sure to watch for it. We met some friends there for lunch who were regulars. As soon as we said who we were meeting, the waitress went and brought back... More

Oak Level is a gem of a place for real country cooking. I had lunch there and had a wonderful buffet. This place is small but country is the word. Their buffet is not one where you fix your own plate. Here you go up and tell them what to pile on your plate and they fix it for you.... More
