    Staff tried hard to provide service on a very busy night; disorganized and a confused. They ran out of menus. Even with a reservation, we sat for 20 minutes before being offered menus or water. Bread came in a half hour. Each staff member seemed to be handing off tasks to another, and I think we got forgotten. Food is delicious but service needs work. Maitre d' has attitude which is an unpleasant start.

    Outstanding service, unique food choices, and extensive whiskey & cocktail menu combine for a special dining treat. The staff is very helpful in navigating the extensive unique whiskey menu and were very helpful with food recommendations. A lot of extra touches like special wine glasses, interesting serving platters and a beautiful display of whiskey bottles at the bar combine for a visual feast for your senses.The menu, while not extensive, has multiple sauces and unique combinations of flavors to stimulate the palate. Something for everyone! Even delicious gluten free choices! The only complaint are the bulky menus which clutter the table tops in the bar leaving little space for dishes. Yummy!

    There was a very mediocre band playing so loudly that it was impossible to enjoy the evening. The food was ok. Fries were cold and reheated, ribs not tender and another of our guests food was cold. Overall we could hardly wait to get out of there.

    We enjoyed everything about this restaurant - the menu, the food, the service and the physical facility. The menu was extensive with something for everyone. The wine list was good with a number of reasonably priced selections. This the fourth owner of this property and hopefully these folks have the winning formula. We enjoyed our first visit and will return.

    This was our third time at Oak and Ember, and it was as good if not better than before. We were immediately welcomed, and laughing as soon as we got there. Samantha was our server and not only was she extremely efficient, but very friendly and knowledgable! They would bring things that we needed before we had to ask. They have an amazing wines by the glass list, and you love whiskies this needs to be your restaurant of choice; however, the shandy is simply fantastic! My wife had the halibut and loved it while I had the best ribeye I have ever had with Au pouve! We ended the night with the beignets, and were not disappointed! The manager stopped by several times and that was very reassuring-he was funny too! Can't wait to go back!

    We came for steak and had the fried chicken. Delish! Came with Mac and cheese and had collard greens and hush puppies as sides. Great! And reasonably priced. Live music was too loud in early evening and then got lower - much better as background. Kevin - the host - was great and very attentive. Will be back!!

    We rented a home for the summer in Mashpee and only found Oak & Ember a week ago after looking online for some new restaurants. The only negative about this fabulous restaurant was not knowing it existed! I shop at Roche Brothers 3-5 times a week and I never knew this hidden jewel was literally right around the corner! Anyway, in 1 week we dined at Oak & Ember three times! We were fortunate to have William as our waiter - he is one of the most knowledgeable waiters and his explanations of the food, wine & cocktails made our dining experience enjoyable! He is top notch! The decor, atmosphere and service are second to none - we can't wait for our next dinner at Oak & Ember!

    Had a wonderful dinner with the family. I highly recommend it if you want a higher-end steak/bbq experience. I loved the scotch and wine selection. The older crowd and locals will probably think it is too expensive. But, the price is about right for this quality restaurant. I go to New Seabury once or twice a year... for sure this will be on my must-do list every time I go.

    It was a quiet evening, so the noise level was good since there was not much of a crowd. The service was good. The wine and beer selection (don't like whiskey, so you'll have to read a different review for that.) was good. I had wanted a steak and they had a few good options. Plating was good. Sat outside and that was comfortable. Price was a bit steep overall. Maybe reasonable for summer on the Cape, but $200 for 3 people was a bit over my expectations and budget.

    Started by making a special request of an off the list Irish whiskey flight which was graciously accepted. It was wonderful. Then moved on to the deviled eggs appetizer and lobster cake. Outstanding. All of this was topped off with the scallop and shrimp grits. Superb!! I wanted to do something special for my significant other, and the Oak and Ember surpassed my expectations.... We will be back..

    Went here for dinner with my mom and my 4 year old daughter. We ordered the filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious. It comes with your choice of steak sauce, but it didn't need any. Had a side of white cheddar Mac and Cheese and asparagus. Thought sides would be small but they were large enough to share. Had peach crisp for dessert...also delicious.

    We've been here twice now and have enjoyed it each time. Cocktails, food and chocolate cake were excellent. Service was 'eh' - they need a lesson or two on how to establish a relationship with their guests and also NO reading the specials. Memorize them and know the correct pronunciations. The atmosphere and good food made up for the server who just needs a little more experience.

    This is my third time to Oak and Ember and every meal has been excellent AND the service is outstanding. It's always disappointing when a good meal is ruined by poor service. Not here -- in fact, I praised both food and service to the general manager as we departed the restaurant. I highly recommend Oak and Ember.

    Chose this restaurant due to Open Table connection & they offered a prix fixe menu. We had fried green toms & trio of deviled eggs as app & husband loved his eggs, toms were good. Entrees were fish for husband (can't remember type) which he enjoyed & I had fried chicken w/mac & cheese which was tasty. I took home my peach crisp dessert which was still good hours later. Husband opted for salad as 2nd app rather than dessert, which they accomodated. I had their signature Manhattan, which was very smooth. Also an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. House vodka is Tito's & reasonably priced @$8, which husband enjoyed. Our waiter, Michael, was friendly & knowledgeable. Beautiful restaurant, warm welcome at the door, felt very upscale.

    If you need a break from fried clams, fish & chips, steamers & beer etc etc this is a good place to go. Like the name implies, the focus is on whiskey & beef, but they have enough other choices to satisfy varied tastes at the bar and on the menu. Plus, if you're over 30 you won't feel out of place...

    We arrived a few minutes late for our 8 pm reservation and the place was so busy we waited anothe 20+ minutes for our table. It was well worth the wait as our dinners and the service was really quite good. Chelsea took excellent care of us. Our dinners were quick to arrive and delicious. Scallop and shrimp dish was perfect as was the rib sampler. The whiskey selection added nicely to the celebration. Oak and Ember is a terrific addition to the dining scene on the upper cape.

    We first visited this restaurant when it first opened and did not have a grt experience. Upon our 2nd attempt to return we had a terrible run in with management and decided not to go. Its now been almost a year and we decided to give it one more shot and glad we did. The host/manager at the door greeted us with a friendly 'hello' and promptly seated us. He also checked in a few times to ask how our experience was and I will say it was overall much better. truth be told the food has always been grt here, but our past experience with management/staff was enough to keep us away. This has obviously changed for the better!! Glad to know it. We will be back!!

    City steak house experience on Cape Cod. We tried a variety of items from the menu and the burger and the halibut did not disappoint. The BBQ short ribs looked like small charcoal bricks and were very dry. I found the onion soup very sweet but the others in my party enjoyed the flavor. Desserts were good and the fact that we had such a great waitress made the overall experience very good.

    The food was fresh and delicious. Our waiter was great but the host was not. I had a reservation for two people and when I arrived, I asked if we can not have a table for 3 and if that was OK. The host answered no it is not OK which I was shocked by his response. I told him I was willing to wait for a table anywhere in the restaurant or bar. He didn't seemed pleased but ended up telling me that I would have to wait 20 minute which was perfectly fine for the party we were with. We ended up getting at table of 4 within 5 minutes. Once we sat down our waiter was excellent and very attentive and the food was devine. It's too bad the host had to be so rude arriving at the resturant.

    We dined late on a Wednesday night and the dining room was fairly quiet. Our waiter explained the whiskey menu and made a couple of suggestions. Both were fantastic! Thank you, William. While enjoying our cocktail we shared the peach and arugula salad. I liked that the goat cheese was on the side. My vegetarian dish was a Nepolean, a short stack of thinly sliced vegetables, eggplant, squash and tomatoes with a bit of homemade ricotta on top of lemon risotto. It was delicious! My husband had the grilled jumbo shrimp and enjoyed it very much. William also recommended wines for our dinner as well as perfect after dinner drinks. I would recommend this restaurant.
