It has been a while since being at Oak. Quite disappointed as the entire meal was very very slow. Over an hour between appetizers and main course. Unacceptable! Comp’d our desserts but not enough.

Oak Steakhouse is my favorite steak place in Charleston. They always have excellent food, excellent service and I find it to be well worth the money. I highly recommend and have eaten there many times.

Has quickly become my go-to steakhouse in Charleston! Knowledge of menu, service, presentation and quality of food are all outstanding. Have been 3 times in the last month and have yet to be disappointed.

From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed. The hostess was ready to seat me and very professional. My waiter was well informed and appropriate with his suggestions. My salad, entree, dessert and wine where all fantastic along with atmosphere.
Job well done I will be back for sure.

Table we were seated at was unstable. Eventually the waiter turned the table and that stabilized it. Ice tea tasted like water. I asked for a another glass twice and, finally, when the meal was almost done was brought a freshly brewed tea. Mashed potatoes were too salty to eat. The filet mignon was good which I would expect since it was $44.00 for 8 oz. Came with a roasted half of a tomato. Took my daughter here for her birthday and noted this on Open Table but the restaurant did nothing to acknowledge it. I was not charged for the tea or the uneaten mashed potatoes. However, at this price point, I expect a flawless meal. It felt frustrating. My daughter and I commented to each other that we felt like we were invisible to the wait staff even though they were highly staffed for the number of tables.

Sides described as “shareable” were quite small...not sufficient for 2 people. Steak quality decent, however overpriced for less than outstanding steaks.

I typically do not ever review, however, this is one of the best filets I have ever had. Make sure to add the truffle butter sauce to it. We will be back!

The one thing I will say is that the martini was a short pour compared to restaurants of your standard in Charleston.

Also the fillet was a bit dry. Not moist and juicy as it used to be.
The result we are going to try Halls which we have heard has really good steaks

Came here for a steak and was not disappointed. The 16oz ribeye was one of the top 2 or 3 steaks I have ever had. The beef carpaccio was excellent and we shared a great salad. Service was prompt, polite and professional. Seriously, this place is a must go to for a steak. BTW come early for a cocktail or two. The bar staff was knowledgeable and helpful.
