Sometimes you just want a juicy, delicious burger. And sometimes you have no idea where to find that perfect hand-held meal. We’re happy to help!

You’ll find it sitting just off Route 259 near the southern entrance of Beavers Bend State Park: an unassuming, white box-building with a red tin roof and an unassuming sign just off to the side of an open parking lot.

What is it? Well the Shady Oaks Restaurant, of course: home to some of the best burgers at some of the best prices you’ll find in this area!

gourmet-hamburger-DT42167948The burgers have been described as “the best,” “to-die-for,” and “awesome”. One bite, and you’ll understand why: juicy, meaty perfection on a toasted bun that will leave you wanting for more… the NEXT time you visit. Because, honestly, you might be too full to think afterwards.

And the onion rings are some of the tastiest you’ll find in the region – be sure to “upgrade” your fries if you have a taste for these luscious rounds of goodness.

apple_pieAh, but don’t let yourself get TOO full – we almost forgot the perfect end to a wonderfully satisfying meal: Shady Oaks Restaurant also has some of the most incredible pies. Pecan, Chocolate, Apple, Coconut, Buttermilk… stop in and see what they’ve baked for the day! They’re even good enough to take a piece home if you don’t think you’re quite ready for dessert after your meal. (People seem to like the chocolate cake as well, so don’t be afraid to try them all during your time in town.)

Shady Oaks Restaurant also boasts some hearty breakfasts to start your day off right. If you don’t feel like cooking when you awaken in your vacation cabin, head on over and enjoy fluffy eggs, perfectly-firm bacon, biscuits and gravy, sweetly delicious french toast, pancakes, and plump omelettes, to name just a few of their amazing offerings to start your day.

No matter what time of day, if you have a hankering for a hearty, from-scratch meal, be sure to stop into the Shady Oaks Restaurant to find the cure for that demanding appetite.

Breakfast is served from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. – the staff stops taking breakfast orders shortly before 11:00 a.m. to accommodate menu-item changeover.
