Like many other restaurants all over the country The Old Oak Cafe has found itself in the position of having to reduce our hours of operation. This has been a hard decision, but we just can’t offer the level of service that we wish to without the proper staffing. We believe that this, hopefully temporary, move will allow us to continue to serve our wonderful Smith Mountain Lake community well into the future. Effective Tuesday June 1st we will be suspending dinner service. Our hours will be Monday-Saturday 7am until 2pm and Sunday 8am until 2pm. We cannot thank y’all enough for the wonderful support that we have received during Covid19. There IS a light at the end of the tunnel, there always is!

Delecious Meals

Welcome to the Old Oak Café!

Come on in and make yourself at home… we’ve been expecting you! Have a seat, and enjoy a hearty meal in pleasant but comfortable surroundings. By all means, get used to it – our traditional fare is designed to make you a regular – good food, served in generous portions, and priced so you can afford to make a habit of eating with us.

We are Annie and Jo-Ann, friends who share a common philosophy – do things right, give people what they want, and do it with a smile. With over 60 years of combined restaurant experience, we have developed a system that allows us to take good old-fashioned home cooking to a new level. We also recognize that one of the best parts of good home cooking is the feeling that you are not only welcome, but it is a pleasure see you and to cook for you.

Let us take the worry out of home cooking – even when you entertain at home. Our party platters and trays allow you to bring the Old Oak Café home with you. You’ll be able to spoil your guests with carefully prepared and tasty comestibles that will make them think you’ve spent hours in the kitchen… and have them coming back for seconds! We do the work, and you get the compliments.

How may we help you?
