    I'm in love with Kings Oak! It was my first time going. My mother and I went on a Tuesday. They have all you can eat seafood for $25. Everything was yummy! ! The staff was so nice and made sure we were taken care of. Our server name was Dakwan. I think! Don't quote me. But I remember him calling us his favorite girls. Now he might say that to all customers. However, he made us feel special. Lol. I will definitely be going back. My mom and I are thinking about having a dinner party there. The decor is beautiful. Their prices are very reasonable. I can't wait to go back!

    This was my second visit to King's Oak....I must say they are pretty good. The All You Can Eat Seafood Night was good. The mussels in white sauce were my faves...the only thing on the menu I did not like was the fish and chips (not very seasoned). But overall I was very satisfied!

    Good, good , & good! Very satisfied w/ everything. I came for the All U Can Eat crabs, I had my twin daughters. Of course they didn't eat a lot, so management knocked money off the bill. Deion was our server, he was excellent, attentive within reason. My party & I really enjoyed our selves. We will be back. P.s I hope I didn't just come on a "good" night. I hope the management & customer service is the same across the board any given night.

    I booked reservations the day before for brunch. This was a last minute surprise party for a friend and I had 8-10 people. Kings oak accommodatted us very well! One of the only places in the city that has brunch reservations available. the staff was wonderful and food was amazing. I had the steak (filet minon) and eggs and the steak was so tender I used a butter knife to cut, flavorful and melts in your mouth. $20 pitchers of belinis and mimosas were great! Over all I will be returning!

    Went on Tuesday night, which is all you can eat seafood night. Went with three friends who were equally disappointed. $395 for dinner and drinks with tio automatically included. $25 per person for dinner. 4 rounds of drinks, a few beers and a couple of tuna tare tare. Popcorn shrimp, muscles, fish tacos, clams.... terrible..... Service was great.

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    I've been to King's Oak twice for brunch and it certainly did not disappoint either time! Super friendly staff and an awesome brunch menu -- not to mention $20 pitchers of mimosas! A friend and I got a pitcher last week and it says it's 8 glasses, but I think it probably ended up being a little more than 4 per person...no complaints here! Both times I went we were able to sit outside, so it wasn't at all loud and was a really nice atmosphere. Totally recommended.

    We had a great first experience at King's Oak. Everything we had was great! The sliders (burger, short rib, turkey burger, and pulled pork), sweet potatoe fries, & Mac & Cheese were great. In fact, the Mac & Cheese was some of the best I've had in the city. We are already trying to think of friends to bring back.

    There are a bunch of restaurants in Northern Liberties but I like the atmosphere of this the best. The food was pretty good but average. It's a great spot for brunch on a summer weekend or a casual dinner. The drinks are really good but expensive.

    I took my sister and parents here to celebrate my sisters birthday! My Dad and sister had the breakfast skillet and LOVED IT, Mom had the Caprese Benny and LOVED IT she said it was the best eggs Benedict she has ever had, and I had the fruity French toast it was tasty but a little under done. For drinks we had the Bellini, Bloody Mary, and mimosa they were all excellent. I really wish the music was much lower especially for Brunch. I get that the music is part of their vibe but Brunch is a time to catch up and talk we had to talk very loud. The waitress was excellent I think her name was Alex.

    The Kings Oak did not disappoint regarding it's unique menu. We took my mom out for a belated Mother's Day brunch and I had heard a lot of great reviews on Facebook about the Kings Oak. We live in South Philly so the location was ideal. The service was great. Our waiter was friendly and knew the menu well offering up his favorite items to help us decide. The meal itself was amazing. My family and I all ordered different meals from the chicken & Biscuits to the fruit loop coated French toast (which was my favorite!). We will definitely return soon. Especially to try their delicious sounding cocktails! Thank you for a great dining experience and for helping us to make a memory with my mom!

    My family and I came here for our Mother's Day brunch and I was really impressed. The inside of the restaurant is cool and pretty open, and then there's ample outdoor seating as well. The menu was surprisingly inexpensive (especially for the piazza). Biscuits and Gravy for 5 bucks, wiggidy whaaaat?! I had the breakfast burrito, pretty basic but good. My husband had the steak and eggs, my brother the poached salmon benny, and my mom the "to philly with love" roll, which was disgustingly delicious (fried egg topped with cheesesteak between two pretzel rolls)! Pitcher of bellinis topped off our brunch

  • "Short Pour Special"
    Voorheesians
    Dined on 5/1/2014
    Food here was reasonably good - with a variety of small plate options in addition to more a traditional entree items. The outdoor seating provided good "people-watching" opportunities in this Northern Liberties neighborhood. On the downside, however - (1) Service was horribly slow and largely inattentive. Long periods of time went past without our server in sight. Water was not refreshed, and missed opportunities for additional drink rounds were abundant. (2) speaking if the drinks, though - the bar must be on austerity measures. There was very little alcoholic "punch" (if any) in any of the cocktails. We felt very much "taken" by expensive prices for exceedingly weak drinks. Needless to say, we won't be back.

    We were extremely disappointed by both the slow service, small portions (restricting the number of plates you could get for the AYCE special), and the misleading happy hour advertising. When we arrived we were told that all Vodka drinks were $5. However, when the bill arrived we were given a $3 surcharge for ordering a martini. We were told (quite rudely) that no one in Philadelphia sells $5 martinis and they would obviously be excluded from the special. Furthermore, many of the beers listed (which are also quite overpriced) were marked lower than they appear on the bill. Even though we were extremely disappointed by the service we could not do anything about it bc the restaurant automatically adds 20% gratuity to ALL parties of 2 or more.

    My friends and I had a very nice experience at King's Oak. The bar scene is second to none. As a whiskey and bourbon enthusiast, I appreciate their extensive selection and the server's knowledge of what was available. The highlight of the night was the cocktails - I had the best plain old Manhattan of my life. The food was nothing noteworthy, at least the Veggie Burger, but fairly priced. Small portions. I recommend for small bites and drinks!

    Dined on 3/23/2014
    Overall the restaurant/pub was clean and modern. It had various televisions to watch sporting events and the menu isn't too pricey. The menu has many interesting items offered. What is needed is s refinement on the execution of the menu. Some things came off very well: the quesadilla and the roasted 1/2 a chicken. The one special Asian Code slider was also good. The Caesar salads were bland. The other sandwich items had potential but were overwhelmed by the choice of bun vs. the portion. As we were not there for beer we cannot say if the offerings were good or not. The service seemed to be sporadic in checking in on our meal and so forth. I had to get the hostess to find our waitperson to get our bill.

    My best friend and I dined at this restaurant last weekend and we loved it. I decided to bring my boyfriend back to try the food. Sad to say but the second time around was a total let down. He ordered the steak and eggs medium well with cheese on the eggs. The steak came out well done and there was no cheese on the eggs. The second time it came out correct with a rub on the steak which wasn't on the first one which led us to believe maybe some corners were cut the first time around. I ordered the Benny Franklin which came out cold. I also ordered two belinis the first was delicious the second one was made using champagne that was flat. Of course I sent it back. Grace was our server and she was great very attentive to our needs.

    The service was GREAT (ashley:server), the food:I had high hopes for.MacNcheese w/ short rib- Blah! Not cheesy and needed S&P, cheesteak dumplings-ok, siracha ketchup could taste the spicy and they weren't crunchy, Thai chili wings: odd taste didn't eat more than one.not good to me, salmon blt- very good..idea, the bread was a bit too hard/crusty, only half if a salmon had the skin taken off, hardly any Russian dressing on the bread, and again NEEDED SALT AND PEPPER, the side salad was perfectly made, croutons were a perfect size and taste great, just enough dressing. Drink menu sounded great but didn't try anything. With this being within seconds of PYT and Bar Ferninand I was quiet disappointed because those places have AMAZING food.
