4 of 5 Good food, GREAT location
While the quality of the food need to step it up a bit, it was wonderful. Had the lobster bisque & seared ahi tuna. Soup was lovely, tuna could have had more of...something. Still, good. Long Island iced tea is terribly weak but the Nutty Irishman was delish! Will return with the girlfriends, not the family.

Service was quite slow but the waiter was polite and apologetic. He cited his table of 10 for the delay.

All you can eat Crab Legs -Tuesday
We went here on a Tuesday and had the all-you-can-eat crab legs. The crab legs were phenomenal and the service was great! Just don't let them try to fill you up with the salad and fries before you get your crab legs! The drink menu was pretty good, then again, we are not very picky about our drinks. The overall atmosphere of the place is great! The outdoor seating area looked really nice, but it was too cold to sit out there when we went. There is a nice size bar and the lighting throughout the restaurant is pretty dark, but we liked that since we were chowing down on our crab legs and making a mess! Overall, a great experience. We would definitely return!

Went here for brunch on Saturday, specifically for the $12 pitchers of Bellinis and Mimosas. Food was great too and priced perfectly. Great spot for a quiet brunch. Second time here and both times the restaurant wasn't overly crowded. There's a nice area for outside eating, if you're in to that.

Made Sunday brunch reservations and they didnt disappoint. We tried one of their new brunch items, the "Henry the VIII". It's a Bloody Mary topped with a filet mignon & fried quail egg slider. Amazing. I wish I could post a picture to this review.

Kings Oak Nailed it!
We had a great experience at Kings Oak the other night! The server was awesome- extremely nice and knew the menu inside and out. The food was good, definitely cannot beat all you can eat crabs and we had a few of those sliders to start! Half price during Happy hour is a great way to start your night! We noticed families and other people in our age group. We can't wait to come back with our friends to show them what a good time Kings Oak is.

Kings oak makes the piazza
Came here with a pretty large group- server, very charming young lady sold us on some delicious lemonade pitchers and the appetizers were delicious! The bar had a very energetic and good looking crowd- cant wait to come back for a date night or with the same group! Definitely will become a regular spot for us to come and everyone should try it out. The piazza would not be as fun without it, that is for sure!

Kings oak was a great experience.
Kings oak was a great experience. We had some of the delicious berry mojitos at the bar, and my boyfriend didn't even know what a mojito was until that night! Bartenders were awesome and once we sat at a table the server was awesome too. Food was typical bar food with a little fancy twist, and everything tasted wonderful. Can't wait to be back kings oak!

Went to Kings Oak and had
Went to Kings Oak and had such an awesome experience from the minute we walked in to when we walked out. The hostess let us know there would be a wait so we went to the bar for awhile and Kyle, the bartender had us laughing so hard we did not want to leave!
We went decided to stay at the bar. The food was delicious and and so were the drinks, it was so great coming to a place with normal expectations of a quick meal and beer and leaving knowing it will become a regular spot for us.
Good job Kings Oak! Can't wait to see you again.

Perfect for any occasion!
While trying to figure out where to take a small group of family in Northern Liberties out to eat for a later dinner Kings Oak was the first to come to mind and everything was fantastic! From the food to service to drinks, everything exceeded our expectations and I'm sure our family will be back to visit soon!

all you can eat crabs
Went for crabs, solid. They give you salad, corn, French fries with old bay...obviously hoping you will fill up on that before crabs haha. The apps were awesome and the crabs were good, I had the snow crab legs, they were also quick and hot on the re-orders as well, which was great.

Great brunch options with delicious sweet and savory options, the pitchers of mimosas, bloody Mary's and bellinis were fabulous and are a great deal. Lots of outdoor seating looking into the Piazza.

Good food and waitress
Kings Oak is located in he club district. It has a nice outdoor patio at the front but it was very windy so we ate inside. The first thing we noticed was the music was set too loud. Although we thought the menu looked interesting because of the sliders, none of us actually had one. I had the tuna ahi, which the waitress told me would be best to eat rare. It was very tender but not much taste. The variety of sides were good and all tasty. My husband devoured his hamburger which he said was very good beef. My daughter ate all her salmon and sides. The mixed drinks and wine were good, though a little slow in coming. Overall, it was a good experience. The waitress was especially good and helpful.

Why Isn't Anyone Here?
My roommate and I were looking to try somewhere new and had heard good things about King's Oak. We had a fantastic time. It was very chill. The service was excellent. Decent beer list for a place that isn't really trying to impress anyone with their beer selection.
But the place was empty! It was about 7:30 on a Friday night and we could have showed up with 12 people and sat right down. I had the macaroni with short rib and my roommate had some of the mix and match sliders. Apparently her crab cake was "meh" but everything else was delicious. I'm talking scrape your plate clean delicious.
We will absolutely go back. Soon. With friends.

Decided to explore dining options in the NoLib / Piazza area and decided on Kings Oak. Great choice. Great food, atmosphere and most importantly friendly attentive, but not overbearing, service which is so often lacking in Philly. Some recent menu changes that were not reflected on the posted menu but to change things around than anything lacking. Will be returning!

Perfect for Date Night
My husband and I needed a night out, and King's Oak was perfect. They had the games on, but the ambiance was very romantic. Our server was personable and very attentive. The food was great for the price. We will definitely be returning for another date night!

Great brunch spot! Eggs benedict
Great brunch spot! Eggs benedict was superb, and the drink specials were great ($4 bloody marys and mimosas). We were served quickly and all enjoyed our meals. Would recommend!
