We spent a Monday evening on the roof top enjoying the food and summer breeze. Our waitress, Heather was very attentive and treated us well. Our food was hot and plentiful. We will be going back for additional taste feasts!

I was extremely dissatisfied with this restaurant. My Husband's Prime Rib was overdone and didn't even look like Prime Rib at all! But worse... we were there for a birthday party of over 15 people. We knew less than half of them... they put us all on the SAME bill. Okay fine, that's their policy, but they might have let us know that ahead of time... when I told them that, the manager said and I quote, "We don't have time to tell everyone!" What a lame excuse!!!! When we let him know that we wanted to have the bill separated because we planned to pay by credit, he threatened to call the police on us! Ridiculous!!! It was then that we finally got angry!!!!

I Love the place and so do my kids. Awesome ribs that fall off the bone. We go there once a week. We love all the different fish and the prime rib too.

The food is fine, but the staff, especially the managers, are RUDE. We asked for a blind to be closed, since the sun was blazing in our eyes. The staff refused to close it, since a couple was next to the window. We will NEVER go back.

Great place. Oxford Inn has been there for years but just keeps getting better. Just finished very nice new addition.

Their food is excellent...with the proper "tang" to the brisket and a good and spicy jambalya. And the greens are wonderful. However...watch your bill...we were overcharged not once but twice...they just couldn't get it right the first two times.
