The three steak eaters at the table declared that this was the best steak they ever had! All the sides were excellent. I had the vegetable plate and it was also excellent. We were celebrating my son being done with high school and he wanted the best steak in Charleston and he feels that's what he got.

The reservation was on time. Arrived early to enjoy the bar area but it was crowded could not find a seat. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient and the filet mignon was to die for. Beautifully prepared

Party of 4, upstairs in the second room, beautiful surroundings. The pickled shrimp starter could have been my entree: it was tasty, satisfying with a balanced “dressing”. The wreckfish main course was delicious with its winter vegetable accompaniments. The sorbets were okay except for the lemon (couldn’t figure out why but two of us left it to melt).

Oak is a great place. We were sitting on the mezzanine level which I consider the least desirable place in the house. Our waiter was excellent and gave us great advice. Oak is still my favorite place to eat a steak in Charleston.

Food was amazing, service was impeccable. We went during Restaurant Week which made it a bit more affordable...but even then, Oak is worth it! I treated my mom for her birthday and she said it was the best steak that she's ever had in her life, and we've been to MANY countries. Kuddos Oak!

We had a terrific meal on a Restaurant Week night. Our filets were perfectly cooked and the potatoes and asparagus were excellent. My starter was beef billy which I enjoyed very much and I finished with light sorbets. I’ll definitely return.

This will be go-to steakhouse in Charleston moving forward. The food was flavorful and reasonably priced compared to places like Halls and Grill 225. The restaurant was full at the time of our reservation, yet the noise level was tolerable and it was easy to hear everyone at the table. We had a great meal and good convo with our waiter. Can’t wait to return!

Excellent service without hovering. I like when I ask a server a question about a particular dish or wine and the server provides an honest answer such as "I think you might want to consider X instead of Y." Those all help to make the dining experience even better. The food at Oak is wonderful. Love the filet (ribeye, much less so, but still tasty). I've enjoyed my meals there and will go back!

We had a great dinner. We when arrived, the valet parking attendant had started for the evening, so the hostess told me to park and put just a little money in the meter and give her the keys. Later on, she brought me the valet ticket. I appreciated her thoughtfulness.

The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive.

We both had delicious steaks, as we took advantage of the Charleston Restaurant Week special.

We enjoyed our meal, had great service, and look forward to returning.

Wow! Oak never ceases to amaze us. We each had perfectly cooked steaks. I added the truffle butter. She had a beer salad. We split roast mushrooms and asparagus. Paired with an excellent Pinot Noir. Thank you for helping us celebrate our first anniversary. Looking forward to many more years of love, happiness, steak and wine.

Thank you Oak!

Food was excellent, I rated service as a 4 because I called ahead and gave my credit card info so I could pay the bill. They said “no problem, I made a note and we will take care of it”. They gave the bill to my date and he paid it, which was what I didn’t want to happen.

Great service, great food. We had reservations for 830, but didn't get seated until almost 930, and food wasn't served until 10, so timing was not good.

A very good meal. Does it live up to all the hype? Sadly, no. At this price point, everything should be perfect. Minor things like un-filled water glasses and empty plates being removed promptly make all the difference. They do serve a great steak, but the whole experience was a little rough around the edges.

The shrimp cocktail was tough, mealy and rubbery. The steaks were very good. The fries were served tepid to cold. The server was attentive and sociable. The ambiance was attractive. If you are elderly or disabled you will never make it to the second or third-floor dining rooms. Steep staircase. The restrooms are on the second floor too! We enjoyed sitting at the bar for a cocktail before dinner. Bartenders were very cordial and welcoming. All in all, it was a nice night out but for the above observations/comments. Other steakhouses in Charleston are better but I still recommend this one if you are willing to put up with the shortcomings listed above.
