Nice little bar that offers lots of choices through out week for dinner, love burger night on Tuesdays or wings and pizza night Thursday. Wait staff is great and so is the food. And a full bar to boot. They also have live music on occasion.

Came in to have a cold beer after getting errands done around town to find... It's 10 and this bar isn't open.... How do you make any money? I've driven by every day and night for the last three weeks and it never stays open past 9... And it's never slammed either.

Nice little local place, they have some great prices on their food and drinks. Food is good quality food with excellent taste, it is a family owned and operated place so they take pride in what they make.

One of the best buffets I have been to in a long time. Chicken, 2 types of fish, fried butterfly shrimp, hand carved sirloin tip roast and Pork roast, with soup and salad bar, and dessert bar. Very well done Red Oak Family Restaurant, we will be back.

Food isn't all the great. I've tried this place on and off over the years...not much improved. Not going back.
