Succulent Selections

The Choice, the Quality, and the Service.  Some residents have specifically chosen to move to (or back to) The Oaks Retirement Community at Waterman Village, because of our dining services experience. You really need to compare, before choosing another community. There are three different dining venues/options to choose from:

 

The Oaks Cafe

Located in the Lodge, the Waterman Village Café is open M-F from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and offers breakfast, homemade soups, sandwiches, entrees, salads, daily specials and weekly cookouts. Residents can purchase a loaf of bread, juice, milk, etc.  There’s also a quick ‘grab and go’ section. You can either dine in or take out.

The Oaks Lodge Dining Room

The Lodge Dining Room is open Mon-Sat from 11:30 – 1:00 for lunch Mon-Sun from 4:45 – 7:00 for dinner.  An extensive ‘brunch’ is held on Sundays from 11-2. Try one of our home made soups, made fresh daily! You can select from an extensive gourmet buffet with a variety of main entrees, side items, and a fresh carved meat. Or, you can order from a menu. There are ample ‘wait staff’ at your service . . . . . . so you don’t have to do a single thing, except come in, sit down, and be waited on. There is a fresh salad bar with a nice selection of fruits, vegetables, and salads. And, make sure to save room for our ‘world renowned’ 14 foot dessert area, with many desserts being made by our in-house bakers.

 

 

The Oaks Bistro

The intimate Five-Star Bistro is open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner, and Wednesday through Friday for lunch. The Bistro offers an elegant ambiance, with selections for a more sophisticated palette. Enjoy some twin lobster tails, grilled salmon, filet of premium beef.      Bistro Luncheon Menu     Bistro Dinner Menu  ‘In-the-Wings’ club members are entitled to eat in the Bistro by advanced reservation. At one time, it was considered one of top restaurants in Mount Dora, when it was open to the public.

Prefer not to drive or walk to one of the dining venues? Just call us and we’ll pick you up at your front door and return you back to your front door.  Meal delivery service is also available for a nominal charge.

We recently moved into Waterman Village after a 2-year wait, and it has already been well worth the wait! We searched for over a year; and after visiting many places, we decided on Waterman as our future permanent home. What brought us here is the friendliness of the staff, the tree-lined neighborhood atmosphere, the professionally-run community, the many amenities, and the fact that we can get part of our entrance fee back. So happy we chose Waterman! Thank you Lord, and thank you Waterman Village”!
