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.

We loved Oak!!! Went on my sister’s recommendation and couldn’t have been more pleased. The best filet mignon I’ve had in years! The service and attention were exemplary. The atmosphere was beautiful. We were celebrating birthdays and they even brought complimentary drinks to celebrate. This is a class A restaurant that I would recommend highly to anyone visiting Charleston. We will definitely go back if we’re in town again.

We've dined at Oak many times and always enjoy ourselves. The staff is attentive but also allows time for diners to enjoy their meal and conversation. Steaks are of course excellent - but no need to avoid the other menu options, all are excellent.

Fantastic night. Our waiter and the food, were both outstanding. I have eaten at Oak in the past and the table we sat, was extremely close to other more vocal diners and it really ruined the evening. Not the case on Saturday night - everything was great.

This is what a PERFECT restaurant is... Oak Steakhouse.! Refined, elegant, yet “at ease”. Staff had great attention to detail and knew what we wanted without having to say or ask. Steven in particular is gifted for his ability to create the atmosphere around your experience for a special evening. Of course, the food
Is amazing!!!!!!!

Went to Oak for an anniversary dinner. We had a lot of choices since Charleston has such good restaurants. We wanted really good steak though. This did not disappoint. It was amazing. We are service and steak snobs and this place was on it. Service was impeccable and the med rare filet was to die for.

It was AMAZING!! They gave great attention to every datail. They noted from the reservation that it was our Anniversary and they sat us at a romantic table for two, upstairs, at a widow overlooking a quiet Charleston street. They gave us complimentary desserts even though we got it to go. The steaks were fantastic!! And the peanut pie is not to be missed!! We will return!! We can not say enough about their kind and attentive service as well as the great meal!

Everything was exceptional -- the food, the service, and the wine. We had made reservations for a late night dinner, and had to push it back a bit due to an event we were attending beforehand running late. The staff was very accommodating even though our later arrival caused them to stay longer than closing time. We were so appreciative as it was our first night in Charleston. Would highly recommend making Oak Steakhouse one of your stops.

Our seat beside the bathroom on 2nd floor was awful. Full view of women in bathroom. That two top should be eliminated. Noise level was almost too much to take but there was a very drunk table of 6 beside us that also kept waiter overworked. Reservation was made early. Not sure why we got worst seat in the house.

This place is incredible - hands down! The drinks, wine selection, and support staff were above standard but only the beginning. Waiter Rob was amazing - knowledgeable, patient, easy...I think if we wanted him to run to McDonalds for chicken nuggets as an appetizer he would have. Whatever he gets paid it’s not enough. The food was delicious - steak perfectly cooked and a delicious cut, crab cakes were plentiful and cooked to perfection. I could go on and on. Go here - it won’t disappoint.

The ambience was lovely, our server Stephen was polished knowledgeable and attentive. However, we distinctly requested the steak that we shared to be cooked and served with pink interior ( medium rare ) but it was presented well done. No where near what was expected. I chose not to complain as it was a shared entree. For the price, I would have expected better.
