Dining Services at The Oaks Retirement Community

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:

 

Waterman Village 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 Lodge Dining Room

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.

We reside at Waterman Village.  We love it and want to spend the rest of our lives here.  The community has so much to offer–beautiful landscaping and flowers from the time you drive through the impressive entrance gates and the main avenue with huge old oak trees.    The Christmas lights and decorations each December are fantastic. Waterman offers a great variety of activities which can keep you occupied all day long if you so desire. There is a  wellness Center with lots of exercise equipment under professional supervision. The  homes and streets are kept in  first class condition at all times and we feel safe and protected in a crime free environment.  The food is superb and lots of it.  The staff and personnel in all departments are extremely kind and helpful.  What impresses us most is the excellent management of Waterman Village, who constantly strive to do the very best job for the good of the residents.
