Oaklawn Southern Dining offers chef inspired dishes, in a unique urban elegant atmosphere! We're minutes away from the popular Paris Landing State Park, and Land Between the Lakes. Our food has flavors from across the nation, featuring some of your well sought after prime steaks and seafood! We are intentional about dining and hospitality, and your whole evening experience from a girls night out, golf outing, date night, anniversary, and of course, helping you take the edge off with one of our Paris inspired crafted cocktails or maybe one of our many bourbons! We did not fall short from an excellent wine or champagne list for you to choose from to compliment your meal or special evening! We also think you will love the view from the old Oaklawn Home, built in 1954, but "remade" with dining and hospitality in mind. Finally, we've added complimentary valet parking with you in mind! Reservations are highly recommended! See you soon.

    Starting with the valet parking, waiting for us to pull up and we were immediately taken inside! Taken immediately to our table and greeted by the owner, shook my hand and told us how happy he was that we were there. The wait staff was impeccable! Food was excellent! Had jazz playing and the ambiance was what I would expect from a 5 star fine dining establishment! I have eaten at some of the finest restaurants in Chicago and none of them rival Oaklawn. I will continue to visit this restaurant whenever I am in Paris, TN!

    We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful evening. The grouper and Seabass were delicious! Don’t miss out on the bread pudding, it was the best I’ve ever had. Paris is lucky to have this restaurant.

    Kim & I have intended to try Oaklawn for some time but life kept intervening for various reasons. Finally decided to make it happen for a Saturday evening “Date Night”. The ambiance, service & food were all first class! We will be back for more! Congratulations to the Owner for adding this fine dining option to our area! Kim & Cary Henson

    An outstanding restaurant in Paris, TN? You bet! The bride and I drove by here a few weeks ago and saw the place, looked it up, and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Starting with the valet parking attendant who greeted us to the time we left the property EVERYONE made sure we felt welcome at Oaklawn. We arrived early on a Saturday night before the dinner crowd and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the outstanding service we received. Our host greeted me with a handshake and a hearty "Thanks for visiting tonight", our waitress thanked us for coming and then proceeded to serve dinner the way it should be. Took our drink and appetizer order and didn't attempt to take the rest of our order until the apps arrived, cleared our used and empty plates and replaced our utensils like a pro, timed the arrival of each course so that we were neither hurried or had to wait. The food? Perfectly cooked and seasoned with no need for salt or pepper. My wife had a terrific pork chop and I had the grouper which was also awesome. Our waitress was a dream, appearing to be able to read our minds about when to refill our drinks, take our plates, and interact with us in a friendly and professional manner. She even boxed my wife's doggie bag and brought it back to the table, a service that not enough restaurants train the wait staff to do. I asked her who trained her to wait tables and when she responded that her manager did I just had to compliment him on a terrific job. On the way home we both agreed that we would definitely be back, and soon. Thanks!

    What a great restaurant and free valet parking! The staff was very friendly and attentive. Everyone in our party ordered something different and all were extremely happy with the choices. When I'm back in Paris, I will definitely return to this restaurant.

    Our dining experience was fabulous! The food choices and quality were equivalent to restaurants we have eaten in large cities. We enjoyed she-crab soup, wedge salad, mahi-mahi and grouper. The staff are some of the friendliest and welcoming people. Paris has a gem of a restaurant!

    We had an enjoyable anniversary dinner at Oaklawn. The service was outstanding, including the owner/manager coming by to open a wine we had brought in. From a card on the table to inserts in the menu, we felt very welcome. We will be returning in the future.
