    Food was great. Appetizers are big portions - our bruschetta was enough for four people. Service was good too. Great experience, will be back

    Love the meatballs! And choice of toppings and sides! Great cocktail! Sat outside on the sidewalk - just a wonderful evening. Tables were clean, chairs comfortable, wait person, Carol, was outstanding! Amazing, fun and delicious evening.

    Fantastic food! We don't go downtown that often but this is worth the trip. Meatballs and sauces were so tasty and the sides were done to perfection. Even the salad was flavorful. We will definitely be back.

    I really liked this place. Intimate and the Food was yummy! We all had the sample meatballs and Mac and cheese. The service was fine. We found a hair in our food so the waitress apologized and said they’d comp that dish (well thanks :) ), however when the check came she had forgotten (but did correct it when we reminded her). We are not very dramatic people but can imagine others may have been more frustrated by the response. But we enjoyed it and loved the food so will be back!

    Oak City Meatball has always been a great place to eat and not just for the food. It has a family atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable your first step in the door. Staff was awesome, answered all questions and was very fast with drinks and food. Highly recommend for a family night or date night!

    My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Oak City Meatball. Spaghetti and meatballs is my husband's love language so he was delighted with the menu. I had the tomato sauce under my balls and found it tasty with just the right amount of garlic and texture. He had the spicy pork and I had the beef balls. Both were delicious! We will definitely be back again. Service was quick and friendly.
