Elevated Dining

Conveniently located on the grounds of The Ridges Resort, The Oaks Lakeside Kitchen offers a rich, flavorful experience for all your senses. Lake Chatuge and the Blue Ridge Mountains serve as a tranquil backdrop that is enhanced by a natural, yet manicured landscape – offering colorful gardens and meandering walkways that are perfect for a before or after-dinner stroll. The inviting interior blends wood, brick and ironwork to create a casually elegant atmosphere.

The Oaks Lakeside Kitchen is a celebration of the diverse and substantial traditions of American cooking. Remember the enveloping warmth of comfort food and the quintessential experience of eating, drinking, and laughing with friends and family – this is The Oaks.

Our elevated menus are approachable and not pretentious, dramatically presented and artfully plated, featuring Honey Dijon Pork Belly Bites, Whiskey Braised Short Ribs, Skillet Seared Salmon, and of course, mouth-watering filet.

The Oaks Lakeside Kitchen also has an extensive selection of hand-crafted cocktails, craft beer, and an American wine list.
