"Enjoy Family Dishes At Our Family Restaurant" The 1940s were a time of great change in the United States. It was in this environment that Johnny and Mary Metcalf took over a 30-year-old diner called Oakwood Cafe and moved it to Culyer Street in Dalton, Georgia, where it still operates today. In 60 years, not much has remained the same in America, but one thing holds true: people enjoy a great homemade meal in a family friendly restaurant. Oakwood Cafe provides the ideal setting for both. Each meal starts with your choice of a wide selection of some of the best meats around, including Georgia's finest BBQ, and all are served with the perfect complement of your choice of homemade southern vegetables and sides. One taste and you will understand why we say with confidence, "If you don't feel like family, let us know."
