As compared to many other steak houses such as the Palm, Del Friscos and Morton’s the ambiance was average. We did not at all care for the decor. With all the other fine restaurants in Charleston we would probably not come back.

Went here for the very first time at the recommendation of some of my fellow coworkers. Everything about the Oaks is WORLD CLASS! I was contacted by phone earlier in the day to verify if we had any food allergies (that was a first for me). The hostess knew why were there when we checked in....there was even a personalized card at our table. The service was top notch (thanks to Chris), the food was phenomenal, and the atmosphere added to our great experience. Hands down I would recommend the Oaks to anyone....and I’m not normally the type of person to leave reviews (good or bad), but this place is definitely worth visiting. The steaks we had were by far the best yet in Charleston! We will be back!

My husband and I went after the theater and were looking forward to a hamburger. Our sever, Chris, gave us the specials and one of them was butternut squash soup. I love butternut squash soup, and I must say it was the best I have ever eaten, creamy and delicious. The hamburger was excellent and my husband had Oysters Rockefeller and the swordfish special. We will be back! Chris and Mike, the manager, were very hospitable.

Oak has been one of our favorite places to eat in Charleston, however this time was less than stellar. While the food was good - the service was not good and the restaurant was not full. Not only did it take a long time to serve our food, but our server was less than attentive. We were celebrating our 43 anniversary and while we had a nice note on the table - there was no other mention until the end of the meal. They had so many opportunities - even with the poor service to make the night a memorable experience. Instead - we were highly disappointed, paid a lot for the experience and will be a long time before we go back.

We celebrated a friend's 50th birthday, they provided her free dessert (chocolate cake, which was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.). Everything is a la carta and pricey, but worth every penny. We each had the 8oz filet and they were cooked to perfection. The brussel sprouts 'side' is a must, absolutely delicious. Last, I had two dirty martinis, one of the best I've ever had.

We loved the atmosphere as it isn't 'stuffy' at all and super comfortable. Also, it was super noisy.

This was a special occasion dinner, and it was a great choice ! Food was fantastic, excellent service, great ambiance- overall just a perfect dinner ! The espresso creme brûlée was 1 of the most delicious things I have ever had at a restaurant. The crab cake entree and the scallop appetizer were outstanding. We were seated on the third floor which was a really nice, intimate dining room without the noise level of the first 2 floors. Price point makes this special occasion only for us but I will definitely be back !

We had a great experience at Oak Staekhouse last Saturday evening. We sat on the first level as you walk in and I loved the view from the huge exquisite windows in front. Best steak I ever had and of course the sides, mushrooms and lobster Mac n cheese was yummy!! One of our fav steakhouse in DT Charleston. It makes for a wonderful special occasion.

Outstanding dinner. One of the best in a long time. The ambiance is classical Charleston with a bit more traditional table feeling. The salad and sides were to die for with each having its own unique flavors. The au gratin potatoes were superb as was the spinach. Try it you, you will be surprised at the special tastes. The whole experience was outstanding in-spite of a smaller size 8oz filet (1+ oz. short). , the taste and temperature were perfect.

Family get together before Thanksgiving.
Dinner really took too long to arrive after the salad course. And since there was not a crowd eating it was hard to understand. I would love a 4 oz fillet of beef. Most Country Clubs offer that option and to enjoy your other sides it would be a nice complement.

This by far was one of the best meals I have had ever.
I have been in the business for years & can not say enough wonderful things about Oak Steak House.
The food was fantastic & the service was Great.
Sam was a incredible waiter.
Each course was bought out & served impeccably!

If you haven't been here , you are missing out on one of Charleston's Best Restaurants for sure.
Can't wait to go back!

I wish we had pictures, but I have to tell you try the Scallops & Oyster Rockefeller outstanding.
We had a Special Salad that evening & of course one of their Steaks as wells as House Pasta with Lobster, all so good I can't even tell you.
Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

My wife and I visited Oak Steakhouse for the first time Sunday night. We have dined at many Charleston Restaurants, including Halls. We decided to give Oak a try to satisfy a friend who insist I eat here. I am very glad we decided to give it a try. Dinner was great and the Steak was Superb. We were seated in a small corner table above the staircase. Was not in love with the location, but we were there for the food. For appetizers I had Oyster Rockefeller's which were very good. For my taste, they were not the best I have had, but they were good. For dinner my wife had crab cakes and I had a filet, cooked medium rare with a horseradish cream sauce. I ordered the sauce on the side as a steak must be tasted with no topping to get the best experience. I will say the steak was very well prepared and very flavorful. Best I have had in a while, including a top steak house in Atlanta that I had recently visited. If you are in Charleston for dinner and want an amazing steak, stop in and give it a try. You will be glad you did. The crab cakes were very well prepared as well.
