Crooked Oak Tavern is a restaurant specializing in farm to table food. When available we will be using hormone-free beef, pork and chicken, locally raised produce that will change as is available during the growing seasons, and sustainable fish from local waters ( no farm raised fish). Our goal is to provide fresh local food that will not be full of hormones and pesticides. Recipes are a unique blend passed down through our family to you and given a bit of a modern twist. We want our guests to leave feeling like they had a home cooked meal mixing in New England, Pennsylvania Dutch, Maryland Seafood and Southern cooking.

We brought an out of state friend with us for a celebration of his visit, all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Being that it is a "farm to table" style restaurant, everything was fresh & very good. Our server was excellent.

The pimento cheese crab dip was wonderful. The shrimp and grits were delicious. My husband had a ribeye and it was good but he will try something different next time. My daughter had the kids chicken fingers and she liked those and she is very picky.

Everything was fantastic! I followed the advice of another review on here to get away from the tourist traps and this place was by far the best dinning experience by far!!

Great place in quaint, quiet town! We were staying in North Myrtle Beach, and decided to get out of the tourist traps for a night. We decided to take the 25-minute drive to Crooked Oak Tavern (Conway, SC), and we’re glad we did.

We were met with a great menu and great service in a small, old building with great character. One of the steaks we ordered was a tad undercooked as compared to how it was ordered, but that’s the only blemish on the report card.

I didn’t notice an off-street parking lot, but there was ample, free parking on the nearby streets.

We would definitely go again.

Crooked Oak food and service was great as usual. We did notice the sauce on the shrimp and grits was just a bit saltier than what we have had at Crookled Oak in the past, so they may have simply had a different Chef. However, Crooked Oak still has the best shrimp and grits we have found across a number of restaurants. We also had fried green tomatoes-and the scallop appetizer- both excellent!

Total Bill for 2 Surf and Turf "Special" which is a Filet Mignon and an 8 oz Lobster Tail, 1 Fried scallops appetizer and 2 cokes was for whopping 250.00 dollars bill.

For those who love how a filet mignon steak should be done - mostly rare or medium, then this is the place for you. If you're like me who loves his steak to be properly well done than this is not the place for you as it will always have a good amount of redness inside the steak. I ate as much as i could then basically took the entire steak home to cook it again to my likeness because if you have them do it again they might just burn the hell out of it since it is thick. The lobster tail was perfect.

By the way the "Special" does not mean low price. The Surf and Turf Special was 102.00 each plus 1.00 for the Caesar salad that had about 5 small piece of romaine lettuce. The most extremely small Caesar salad I have ever seen in my life.

This was the second time this particular group of my friends and I got together at crooked oak tavern. We coincidentally had the same waitress we had the last time we dined there her name is Josie and she is phenomenal. Request her when you go to check out the Crooked Oak Tavern experience. Oh and you won’t go wrong with some dry rub wings and Mac&Cheese balls either!

Nice friendly "neighborhood" style restaurant-tavern. We enjoyed our menu choices very much and service staff was very pleasant to deal with. Conway traffic can be a bit much to deal with, but once you're here you'll enjoy it.

Very nice place and service was outstanding. After talking to each other after the meal, we were not overall impressed with the food. Each of us had food that was luke warm. Unfortunately we did not speak up because I am sure they would have fixed it. We had the Dirty Fries and Mac n cheese balls for apps. They were fine and very good. Our dinners were the flat iron steak which was not bad but nothing outstanding; the CAJUN CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE PASTA which was not hot but was very good reheated the next day. Overall I would give this place another try.

Dinner consisted of strip steak and crab cakes, with mashed potatoes and green beans. Steak was cooked to my preference and had a refined taste. My wife felt the crab cakes were okay, albeit drier than she preferred. Service was excellent. Cost was a little pricey when compared to other options

This was our second visit. Our first time we ordered the Denver steak special and 4 of us at the table could not eat it. The steak was not chewable. So glad we went back since this place had such high reviews. We loved our meals and the whole experience. We will come back! Very nice evening.
