The Oak and Vine at Springside is one of those out of the way gems. The food is great and there are several options for dinner. Prime Rib night has got to be the best deal around.
John the bartender (and our server) always makes the best recommendations for drinks and wine and will talk up new beers they're serving. Lots of parking and the ambiance is really nice in summer and winter.
It was our first experience for a meal. I had previously attended two events in the attractive "event" rooms. We went for Sunday brunch and were led into a very large, very plain room with white walls. There was no decor at all. There were people at two or three other tables. We were not allowed to order off a menu. The only option was a $19.95 buffet. Neither of us can eat that much food! We quietly asked the server if was okay to simply leave. She said that was okay. She was very nice about it. We won't go back.
We have been here several times when we are in the area and they have also catered events for us. Nice atmosphere, lovely Waite staff. Menu is limited but everything taste great!
First time here. Had a great salmon and risotto dish and delicious Moscow Mule. Will visit again and hopefully our waiter John is there.
We took relatives from overseas, all enjoyed our evening dinner and the great ambiance. Food quality was very good as was $ value.
We ate at the Oak and Vine for our wedding anniversary. The restaurant was very nice, but not a WOW! The food was good, but not a WOW! The service was good and our waiter was friendly and attentive--he was a WOW! I was impressed was the quantity of food. We had so much food! I had the Ribeye Steak which was good, cooked well, but the steak was thin. I had plenty of potatoes and vegetable which all tasted great. The Oak and Vine is a very nice restaurant and we enjoyed our time there. Would I go back...sure. We live out of town, so we would probably try other places, but would eventually go back.
If you make reservations here with Open Table, we were treated to a shot of curried cauliflower soup and a yummy zucchini bread. The seating was somewhat awkward, as there was another couple right next to us. So close, that I could've shared my meal with them which limited our conversation. The beet salad was not as pretty as I remembered- but it was good. Service was very slow in the beginning- our waitress got slammed with too many tables. We were there for dinner before going to a play at the Merry Go Round Theater, so all in all it was a good choice.
The exterior and interior were very attractive. The staff were accommodating and quite pleasant. The buffet food was generally good and varied, although vegetarian options were somewhat limited. We found the dessert table offered some nice selections including 3 flavors of ice cream.
It would be better if there were more tapas offered along with a greater variety of vegetarian choices. The outside space is nice but the porch needs to be swept more frequently as the cobwebs were plentiful. The service was outstanding but the food was mediocre and pricey.
We picked the perfect night for eating here. The deck is quiet with a nice view. The food was good at a reasonable price. Our waitress seemed to forget about us from time to time, but we weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter. The only item that we didn't care for was the cheese cake. It was more like a pudding than a cake. The flavor wasn't bad, but texture was weird. But the chicken and tuna were very, very good.
