Excellent food and excellent service. It was loud only due to a large intoxicated group seated next to. Waited a little long for food (reservation at 8:00, no entrees til 9:30), but it was worth it

The food was absolutely amazing. The only negative thing to say is they sat us in this back room. It felt like a storage closet, it was dark, had a staircase, a door to close us in and extra chairs. It was a negative start to our evening because there were several other seats available. We asked to move so the night turned around but they should take away that table or only use it if given permission. It’s an expensive restaurant all people should have equal experience.

So the atmosphere is amazing. The waiter had just too many table to take good care of us. Fine dining should be exceptional. You should be catered to, and made to feel like royalty. It started by waiting 15 minutes before even getting a cocktail order, then it took over an hour to get our food. The flow was just not there the night we visited. Not good for a $50 steak!

I've never spend that much on a meal but wanted to take my wife some where nice. Do not feel like we got our money's worth but I reckon it because of the type of restaurant and the location. It was very nice. Felt a little crowded because tables so close. But in their defense it's not a large place. I may would go there again if you were to participate in Charleston restuarant week. Service was excellent

We went on a restaurant week evening. Perhaps if we had not had such a great experience two evenings prior at Slightly North of Broad (also restaurant week), we wouldn’t have been quite as disappointed. There was no bang for the buck in the appetizers. My husband had a shrimp cocktail, which was not part of restaurant week, but he had to send it back because the shrimp was softer than fresh shrimp should have been. He then ordered a scallops appetizer that had only 2 average-size scallops. My Caesar salad was okay but pretty small. My steak was very good. His crab cake entree was also very good. We don’t mind paying for good food, and we regularly dine out at nice restaurants, but this experience was just so-so for an expensive restaurant.

We celebrated our anniversary at Oak. From the moment we entered everyone was so attentive. Our waiter, Dave, couldn’t have done better. He was friendly,answered our questions, and chatted with us. The restaurant helped us celebrate by contributing several dishes to our meal ..... all complimentary!
Favorite steakhouse in Charleston. Casual, not “stuffy,” and feels very comfortable.

First time dining at Oak Steak House. My husband and I are locals to the Charleston area and celebrated his birthday. Upon arrival, complimentary parking in front and greeted by staff. First, sat at the bar and had attentive service. Once our table was ready at 8 pm we were sat upstairs and greeted by our server who was wonderful the entire evening. We started with the beef carpaccio, next- I had the 12 oz filet and my husband had the burger. Our meat was cooked to preference and absolutely loved everything. We will absolutely dine again and recommend to others for a special occasion, work dinner or just to simply enjoy good drinks & a special meal. Not too pricey but what you’d expect for an excellent steak house.

The overriding sense of Oak is one of accommodation and service. We arrived somewhat early for our reservation during restaurant week. No problem. We requested a shared entree from the menu. No problem. (which was the Mixed Grille. Outstanding) Our server, Dave, was attentive, knowledgeable and never in your face. This is absolutely the place to go for a special occasion. The wine list isn't overlarge but will suffice for any level of budget. The food was cooked exactly as ordered. The roasted mushroom side will feed a party of four. Sadly, there probably won't be room for dessert. Overall, this is probably the best steakhouse value in town.
