    Food and service was outstanding with a great atmosphere. Very large selection of Whiskeys and Wines. Atmosphere is nice with a beautiful bar area but dinner seating some what limited. Reservations are needed if you wish to dine other than the bar area. A little noisy but that's do to the energy of the customers. Will definitely dine there again, a new found favorite.

    For someone who has dined out all over New England, Oak and Ember surely did not disappoint. From the initial greeting at the door, to the knowledgeable and experienced server who knew all the answers to my questions it was truly a great experience. The wine by the glass selection covered all parts of the world and the whiskey selections and flights were a great way to get me started. The Shrimp and Scallop wrapped in Bacon was a great appetizer, the entrees of the Cherry Bourbon Duck and Prime Flat Iron Steak were cooked to perfection and to top of the experience the Pumpkin Crème Brulee was to die for.

    Our first time in... a fantastic addition to Cape dining! Menu has something for everyone from meatloaf to prime steaks. Our dinners were well presented and perfectly prepared. The service was great and the dining room beautiful. The fireplace was a warm treat on a cold night. Cant wait to return. P.S. your wine list and whiskey selection is superb

    10 of us needed to find a good meal after an afternoon of decision-making for our fading mother living in a Cape dementia facility. Where to find a place to eat so early? OEW invited us to their dining room. It was wonderful. Some choices on the menu had a Southern tilt, so, despite the snow (Nov 2), our tongues made short trips to Charleston. The food was very good, the service fantastic.

    In a land known for fried clams and lobster rolls, Oak and Ember stands out from the crowd. With over 200 whiskeys from around the world, plus an extensive wine list, plan to take some time to make a choice. Once you get to the actual menu, you can't go wrong. I had the smoked short ribs, and my wife had the duck. Both were excellent. Unless your kids are real foodies, get a sitter and plan for an amazing dining experience.

    Overall good experience. Was not happy with 10oz sirlion as it was tough and fatty, everything else was delicious. Definitely would go back again liked the atmosphere. The whiskey selection was second to none and an added bonus to those who enjoy there cigars and after dinner drinks there is a selection of cigars as well, they have an enclosed out door area for this after 10pm.

    Everything from our cocktails to dessert was excellent The only thing disappointing was the price of the rib eye! Forty five dollars for a steak was very steep! That was almost worse than steak houses in Boston. The four of us all had a different entree and none of us were disappointed! The only thing if there was a complaint were that the side of mashed potatoes were not hot~more room temp! Overall a great dining expierance!

    We had the most perfect dining experience here last night. The food was a amazing-- from the delicious bread and corn muffins, to the sirloin my husband enjoyed so much, to the yummy cod dish I had. The outstanding service was equally impressive... on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate our experience 11.

    This was our second visit to Oak and Ember. Although the food was very good the pour volume of our single malt scotches was very disappointing. Two small sips and it was gone. We didn't voice any complaint to the wait staff but in comparison to any other restaurant we've been too this was sub-par. We won't be returning any time soon as there is better value for the money elsewhere.

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    Since the restaurant is known for offering flights of whiskeys, I invited my brother and his wife to the restaurant to enjoy the good food, but especially to indulge in a flight of Irish whiskeys. Since I had enjoyed such a flight during my prior 2 visits even though an Irish whiskey flight was not specifically listed on the menu. I was very disappointed to be told by our server that the manager had said that an Irish whiskey flight could not be made up on a Friday night. I have to ask, since you already have several Irish whiskeys listed on your menu, how difficult would it be to take 4 of our choosing from the menu, and pour a shot of each into 4 separate glasses for our tasting and comparison?

    Been here 3 times and will keep coming back. The staff is very knowledgeable of the menu which has much to offer. The hush puppies appetizer is a must. There's a ton of whiskeys to try and the flights are great way to do that. I've had the salmon, the grilled chicken and this last time had the sirloin which I think will be my go-to. It was cooked perfectly med-rare and the bleu cheese aioli on the side was a nice addition. Excited to try everything else the menu has to offer. Oh also make sure to try the chocolate cake if you've saved room.

    I dined on Wednesday night with a friend. Oak and Ember came highly recommended by a coworker and so I had high expectations. I was not disappointed! My meal, the prime flat iron with creamed spinach was fantastic; the meat just melted In my mouth. My friend enjoyed the shrimp and scallop over grits, the presentation was beautiful and she said the flavors were great. Fantastic wine selection and it was fun to end the night trying a whiskey flight. I am new to whiskey and our server guided us to a perfect beginners choice! Thank you for the attentive and informative service and the delicious food. I will spread the word and be back soon!

    The restaurant breaks the habit of Cape Cod restaurants to all have a "Cape menu." This restaurant is nothing short of refreshing, for a southern transplant, It is an oasis in a desert of lobster rolls and quahogs. The steaks and ribs are great, the grits are better than any grits I've had in the South, as are the hush puppies. They have a Pre Fix menu as well, which for 25 dollars is a bargain for a 3 course meal. What really gets me excited is the bar with 140 whiskeys and all of their unique cocktails. This a bar that offers a serious experience, when people realize how good it is, there will probably be lines to sit at the bar. Overall the servers and managers are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. Would recommend to a friend.

    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!

    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 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!
