My husband and I have been coming here each year for a date night for 8+ years. The food and service is always excellent. I recommend sitting on the third floor for a more quiet date night. We love Oak!

We sat in the top floor dining room. It offered charm and delicious food. The server was fantastic and went out of his way to make certain my two vegetarian daughters were satisfied as well.

This is the 2nd time we have had dinner at the Oak Steakhouse and our experience was even better. Our server Dave was engaging and knowledgeable when asked about specific menu items. We will return for a 3rd time based on this experience.

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.

There were 3 of us in the party and we all agreed that it was a first class experience. It was Sunday and the more expensive wine selections were half priced, which provided a great opportunity to try a nice bottle of pino noir. The rib eye and filet were awesome, and our guest loved the scallops. Our server was great provided guidance as this was a first time visit. My only negative: we were seated right next to the door on a cold, rainy evening. All 3 of us had to stay bundled in our coats to stay warm.

When we arrived at oak for our reservation the hostess was very rude. She said your table isn’t ready you go the bar. Once at the bar we were told there were clean cups so there was a delay in getting a drink. The hostess returned and said she’d seat after we paid our bar tab. But we didn’t get anything. No clean glasses!!! We were seated by the bathroom! I felt like that was ridiculous!!! Considering I made reservations 2 months ago ...Why would I pay 60 dollars for a steak to actually watch woman in the bathroom? Unacceptable! We were preparing to leave when our server Dave saved the evening!!! He was amazing, I expressed how upset I was and he handled everything. I’d like to personally thank him for saving the evening. He is an excellent example of costumer service !!!! The hostess on the other hand needs to trained... ! My husband and I love Oak and have been there so many times, but if not for Dave I would not even consider returning !!!

The food and drinks were delicious and the service was impeccable. The filet is to die for. Be sure to save room for the apple dessert. OMG - it’s soooo good!
We arrived for dinner at 6:30 on a weekday and it was perfect for quiet conversation. By 8:00 the restaurant was full and significantly louder.

We've eaten at Oak a couple of times now and have loved it each time. The service is impeccable and the food never disappoints. Highly recommend for business dinners, dinner with friends, or an intimate date night. You can't go wrong with Oak.

Oak is the premier steakhouse in Charleston. The quality of meats, preparation, and presentation is superior. The service is attentive and personalized, but not suffocating, and NEVER do you feel upsold or "pushed out" to turn over the table. Wonderful dining experience.

Our booking was incorrect and the we didn't show up at 6:30, but as soon as I called back the Hostess was gracious enough to change the time and accommodate us for a later time. The server had a very pleasant demeanor with great suggestions. The drinks were great and on time. The only thing I don't recommend is the cheese cake. Too sweet. But everything else was great and prompt.

We have eaten at Oak Steakhouse many times and it is always a lovely experience. The oysters Rockefeller are wonderful. We usually opt for the 5oz filet and truffle fries after enjoying a cocktail and \or wine. The servers are congenial and efficient. On this visit, the hostess filled up our waiter's section very quickly and he was scrambling to get everyone's drink orders as well as explaining the menu to a large number of people. He apologized to us several times but we assured him that we were in no hurry. When he brought our bill at the end of our meal, he told us that our dessert was free of charge. What a pleasant surprise!

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.
