Portions are very generous in a casual atmosphere. Good eating without "breaking the bank." Try their BBQ sandwich.

Great food and great atmosphere! On Wednesdays they have their Wacky Wings. Definitely worth giving it a try.

I had half rack of ribs as did a friend of mine. Both of ours were good but mine were served warm while hers was served cold. Others liked their food. Our server was very nice, she was quick and came by when it looked like we needed something. My friend, however, had an issue before we were seated. She... More

The easiest review I have ever undertaken from the moment we walked into the door, to the moment we left, the staff were welcoming and were simply the perfect hosts. The food was outstanding and our waitress Holly a delight, prompt attentive and extremely helpful. Still wondering why they allow customers to throw their peanut casing on the floor,

This is our 'go to' place for an inexpensive meal. The portions are reasonable, food quality always consistently good. It is a comfortable, casual place. There is music some nights which we find to be too loud but others seem to enjoy.

We have visited this restaurant twice in the last month. I was a bit leery based upon some reviews, however, we found it to be very good. Oak Hill is basically a bar tavern with decent food at inexpensive prices. Had lunch there today with friends. I had a steak sandwich and others had fried fish sandwich and French dip.... More

There was a chili cookoff when we went. Everyone was enjoyed the tastings and the announcement of the winner. We enjoyed our dinner. The chicken parm was good and so was my husband's sandwich. It is a nice atmosphere with many different style tables and a bar. I'd recommend this.

Our first visit was great. We sat at the bar and the service was excellent and the food was also very good. We tried it again and this time the bartender was not good. She pretty much ignored us and we had to get her attention for another drink, ask for condiments, etc. We're trying someplace else.

My wife and I tried Oak Hill Tavern for the first time on a Sunday night. We had seen it on the road for about 40 years and thought it was time to try it. The staff was friendly and attentive. I had the seafood casserole, which was really excellent, full of bay scallops. The fries looked like authentic hand... More

Best bbq I've had. Food is surprisingly good and a great value. Seafood is scrumptious. Nice outside area. Bar atmosphere but with families also dining. Note there are free peanuts so if you have an allergy beware.
