Diner Reviews
  • "The aged beef was perfect,the decor was delightful(we sat in the bird room). But the noise level was obnoxious. From the bar to our table we had to scream to be heard. At this price point I would like have a conversation with my dining companion. The house Cabernet was very good. The service was top notch."

  • "Everything was perfect. Everyone's meal was prepared exactly as requested. Decanted our wine while enjoying a cocktail before dinner. Staff was attentive. Manager visited every table. One of our top picks every time we are in town."

  • "Our waiter Herman did a great job of taking care of us, guiding us through the menu. Everyone's food was prepared as expected, hot and quite tasty. While we could not all agree on a bottle of wine, ordering by the glass proved to be a fine compromise for style and cost. The cheese plate appetizer was wonderful."

  • "We went to Oak this past Saturday evening and everything was wonderful! We wanted to treat my husband's parents to a nice birthday dinner and they were so happy. The food was amazing.....we loved the oysters rock as an app! I got the grouper special and it was delish! Tried some of my husbands steak and that was also fantastic. Matt (I think I have the name right) was our server and he was just so knowledgeable and fun. Great server and overall fantastic night!"

  • "Everything we ordered was great from appetizers to entrees. When ordering steak definitely make sure to look at their temperature guide as is different than most. Staff was very friendly and always checking in without hoovering. Definitely will consider going again."

  • "My husband and I were visiting Charleston for his birthday and chose the Oak Steakhouse for his special dinner. The steaks were incredible. The waiter was very helpful and knowledgable. He recommended a bottle of wine that was so delicious we are still talking about it. We would highly recommend this restaurant"

  • "We recently had the pleasure of dining at the Oak Steakhouse for the first time. Though long time residents of the area and regular patrons of Charleston's fine dining establishments, we just hadn't made it here. From the moment we entered the front door, Oak proved to be one of Charleston's best offerings. Michele the manager greeted us promptly on our arrival and checked back with our table many times. We can't say enough about Jared our waiter. He is perhaps the best we have experienced in the area. Service was fast end expert, food was perfectly prepared and very flavorful and the atmosphere inviting. This is now one of our favorites and we will return soon and often. Don't pass this one up!"

  • "We had a great dining experience. It is a perfect place for that special occasion with that special someone in your life. Took my wife here for our anniversary and we both enjoyed the atmosphere, location and the food at the restaurant and because we were celebrating a special occasion the staff gave us complementary dessert. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "Once an outstanding restaurant in Charleston, Oak has lost it's luster. Our waiter highly recommended the Rib Eye- it arrived undercooked and the meat was tough. The side dishes lacked flavor and an over abundance of butter. Simply put-- we were disappointed with our pricey, average meal. With all the restaurants to choose from in Charleston, Oak might considering stepping up it's game."

  • "I loved the entire dining experience at Oak. The food was delicious (I had the red leaf salad, followed by the 5 oz cut filet with frites and my husband had a special - heirloom tomato Caprese salad and pasta Bolognese). We were there on a Sunday night, so the Prosecco we ordered was half off, which encouraged us to share a bottle rather than just have one glass a piece. But I especially appreciated the host coming over while we had our entrees to ask if everything was satisfactory - very nice touch. Our waiter was great, the ambiance very lovely on the third floor. Very enjoyable way to spend our last night in Charleston."

  • "Went to Oak with 7 family members and a friend to celebrate my son's (formal) entrance into the teen years ; he's been acting it for a few now! Dinner was superb. Amazing appetizers (it's fresh tomato season), superb steak and lamb, generous tasty sides and a delicious birthday cake! Oak did it all including making the cake! Colin was congenial, knowledgable and very attentive; the consummate professional! Management came and checked on us and made us feel VIP! Thank's to Oak and to Opentable!!!"

  • "The food was fantastic. We had the NY strip and filet and both were cooked perfect. The lobster mac and cheese was delicious as well! As much as we enjoyed the food, the service was lacking. Once we received our main courses, we did not see our server again until he cleared our plates and offered dessert. I would recommend Oak, but save yourself the trouble and eat at the bar."

  • "I dined recently at Oak Steakhouse with a large group for a birthday celebration. While there were no real disappointments, there were no real outstanding aspects about the food and ambience. I do have to say the service was superb. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and was enthusiastic about his service. However, at the end of the day, this was just another steakhouse. There was really nothing on the menu that incorporated the local area fare. The steaks were delicious and cooked properly but one guest ordered a cheeseburger and it was totally overcooked. The one aspect that would draw me back in the future would be the half price bottles of wine on Sunday but that would only get me there on Sunday."

And the menu includes some special kid-friendly items. For the adults, they have a very nice wine list and offer discounts on bottles on some days."

  • "Not only was the service spot on, the food was delicious! We started out with amazing salads and then ordered a steak and a side. The sides: smoky bacon mac/cheese and a tomato soufflé were large enough for take-outs and wonderfully made! We sat at the Chef's table with a great glass of wine and enjoyed the orchestration of the kitchen! Nice job Oak! We will return!"

  • "We have frequented "the Oak" for many years. Consistently fine dining experiences. Celebrated our Anniversary with dinner this week. Food was excellent, as usual, however waitstaff experience was a bit below par this time. We'll allow a pass though since our waiter also had a "rowdy-bunch" table nearby...and The U.S. speaker of a The House was seated next to us. We'll be back, but next visit I hope they at least offer us bread. :-) "

  • "With upper King Street the new "in" place in Charleston, it is easy to forget some lower peninsula gems such as Oak Steakhouse. We walk there and usually am able to get a table if we call that day. The food is as good as any of the up town steak houses in Charleston."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "The restaurant is very nice. The service was very good. The food was very tasty. The portions were very small, and the prices pretty high. The 8 oz steak was about $30, but they charge extra for sides (Mac & Cheese was like $12, that's cheesy!). They did offer ½ price bottles of wine the day I was there (up to $80, then $40 off). "

  • "Other than the "guess what's under my apron" game, zack was a great server. (That was a joke). Good recommendations, knowledge of the menu, friendly. Acknowledged our special evening. Very well done. Food, very good flavor, great options on sides and sauces and adaptability of the kitchen. Ambience, perfect."

  • "Ordered the truffle fries as am app... Gorged ourselves!!! So yummy! My friend had the filet and a side of smokey bacon Mac and cheese and it was perfect! I had the crab cakes, they were perfectly prepared and loaded with crab meat, not doughy at all. We sat upstairs so noise was not an issue. It increased the ambiance. Overall a most enjoyable meal! "

  • "My wife and I live in Charleston. Oak Steakhouse has been on my to-do list for quite a while. I consider myself a chophouse guru and my specialty would be bone-in ribeye. I was happy with the over all dining experience, especially the food. Oak also has a very nice bar downstairs."

  • "We arrived early. This is on Broad St: small spaces, and on a busy Thursday evening, no place to sit. Wait staff is very courteous. Menu is a bit rich (cheese on many items) for our tastes, and servings over generous, so plan accordingly. Chopped salad was fresh, roasted mushrooms very good, filet was the best quality item in our order: lean, tender, cooked exactly to order. "

  • "Great dinning experience! The dry aged steak was excellent as was the salad, appetizer and wine. The server was on top of his game and the entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Was costly but that's what you get for a high end steak house. Highly recommend it. "
