This place is one of my favorites. It's nothing showy or fancy but the food is reliably good, the prices good, the service fantastic, and the atmosphere great. It's a little hard to find because of the construction in the area, but more people should take the effort to find it! Would most recommend going during a sporting event or for brunch.

Horrible experience! We made reservations and after being seated we waited 25 mins and no one came over to take our order or even introduce themselves as our waiter or waitress. After seeing other tables being waited on that were seated after us we decided to ask when our order would be taken. We asked the manager what was going on and his response was we had call outs so things are a little backed up theyll be over to your table soon. Being understanding we waited patiently for another 20 mins and still did not have anyone even acknowledge we were sitting there. At this point our kids were getting restless and hungry, so we decided to leave and go somewhere else. Even walking out the manager said nothing to us. I can't believe how awful our experience was. Even if you have call outs at least come over and give us water or maybe the manager could have helped out given all he was doing was standing around.

Our server was polite and attentive. We went on a Sunday evening and it was quiet and almost empty, so it was a perfect date night. Cute fire place and LOTS of flat screens (if you're into sports). The crab legs were excellent. So we're the tai wings.

I enjoyed my salad and the wings. My sweet potato fries came out cold. I let the server know and they immediately made me fresh, hot ones.

I got the fruit loops French toast with two eggs scrabbled with cheese and home fries and a mimosa with pineapple juice. You everything was delish and fairly priced. The dining area was kind of tight but that's typical of any restaurant in the city. I will definitely be attending again.

No parking in the area and it was hard to find due to all of the construction. We waited almost 20 mins for our waitress to come and greet us. She wasn't attentive. She was too busy holding personal conversations with her coworkers. The fish and chips were greasy as if there didn't drain it. And the crablegs were skimpy. They looked nothing like the website. I think they give bad service because they know that the gratuity is already included. I wouldn't recommend the all you can eat seafood.

I really love coming to this place. Especially on a nice day when you can sit outside. I went with a group for my birthday and we loved the food. I am never disappointed with my food here. The only downfall was that the server was a little awkward. Good overall experience. Always looking forward to returning!

The staff is hardworking, knowledgeable, and passionate. They provide great, friendly service served with one of the best brunch's you'll find in the city. A true gem! I ordered the chicken with bacon and egg with gravy and it was my first time ever having gravy, the breakfast item. It was amazing, and I am so satisfied with my decision to try something new. I can't wait to indulge again!

Was here for later evening dinner with a buddy on a quiet Friday. Their mussels are absolutely amazing, and the bread pudding dessert is also delic. My entree, a steak cheddar melt was less so.....primarily due to the way overtoasted ciabatta bread (not sure if I was just unlucky, or that's how it's usually done). Service was very good, but....and this is in no way the server's fault.....their policy of automatically adding a 20% Service Charge to all checks on a Friday night is extremely annoying (considering the good service, we would have tipped nicely anyway, but felt that it should be up to us). This has got to go!!

P.S. Definitely would recommend, even if just for the mussels, but not on a Friday/Saturday night due to the Service Charge issue.

The All You Can Eat Seafood was just that. The plates came out hot and had great flavor. There was a group of 6 of us and we all tried pretty much everything. You won't be leaving hungry that's for sure!

The first time I went with my girlfriends the experience was ok, it was extremely crowded and the waitress was slow and she got everyone's order wrong. I was hoping it was because it was busy so I decided to give it a second chance. This time I went with my husband. Food and service was both great and the waiter was very personable. Glad I gave it another try.

We found out from our server that the menu on the open table website is at least 4 years old, and no longer valid. We were disappointed, vegetarian options were no longer on the menu, and the kitchen could only be bothered to remove the chicken and bacon from a cob salad. Didn't choose to dine here just to eat salad that you can get anywhere. The Mgr. Didnt have the open table app, so we had to show our server their menu on the app, Mgr couldn't be bothered to come over and speak to us.

I'd previously been to King's Oak with friends about a year ago in it's former location. We had a lovely brunch with about 10 people. I remembered the prices being reasonable and the food being delicious, so I thought it would be the perfect place for a large group (9) about a year later. We got a great table outdoors right on time (the restaurant wasn't very crowded), but it took 15 minutes for us to be able to order anything. Thank goodness we ordered drinks and food at the same time, because our drinks (2 mimosa pitchers) didn't come for a half hour! We'd been there for over an hour before we ever got our food. At this point, I asked for the check because I had to leave within about 15 minutes. 25 minutes later, I still hadn't received the check. Furthermore, one girl's meal didn't come out with all of our food. It took until I had left for her to finally be served, and at that point, everyone else was already finished. It's a shame that the service was so disappointing because the food is so delicious.

The food was not good AT ALL. Both the mussels & the Alaskan crabs were DRY. The "popcorn shrimp" were more French fries than anything. Speaking of which, they give you a ton of "filler" stuff like French fries, salad, etc... I'm assuming so you won't order as much from the "All You Can Eat" menu. We asked for separate checks & they added gratuity to BOTH checks totaling $30... since when do you get a $30 tip for 2 ppl & 3 courses?!? All totaled we dished out $135 for a $35 "All You Can Eat" seafood "special" (3 Alaskan crab clusters, a plate of mussels, 2 fish tacos, 4 popcorn shrimp & fries) & left hungry. :(
