    No pretense here, just top quality food, laid back atmosphere and excellent food & service. Feel like a local when you dine here. Booked for a special occasion and had the best table in the house. Treated like we were family. Extensive wine list, steaks done perfectly, of course. Appetizers consumed; shrimp, scallops (wish there were more than 2), beef carpaccio were all delicious. Our waiter, Vinny, treated us to oysters Rockefeller and cornbread. Big shout out- Vinny made our occasion memorable, he is upbeat & funny. TY

    The food and service were fantastic. Genevieve our server was very attentive and provided excellent service. The only small opportunity was the noise level in the small two-table area at the top of the stairs, it was very loud and hard to hear our party. Even with the noise, it was still a wonderful evening, thank you!

    Date night out and we were talking about it again, today! Oak Steakhouse delivers quality food, excellent service and an ambience that is elegant yet comfortable. Excellent wine list, the steak is awesome! Bleu cheese on the salad needs to fork up and too much smoke in the bacon Mac and cheese. If that’s as bad as it gets, I’ll take it! Oh, and chocolate layer cake is the bomb. Thanks for a wonderful night out.

    Birthday dinner for my wife. We sat upstairs and the service was top-notch. Food was fantastic and cooked to perfection, which can’t be said for many other steakhouses around town. We will be back!!

    This Charleston restaurant has always been one of our favorites. While the steak was very good & cooked perfectly, the French Onion soup was tasteless & barely warm. Given the cost, we probably won’t return. Charleston has an abundance of great restaurants.

    So we finally made it to Oak for restaurant week. Unfortunately they were out of the French onion soup and swordfish, which were my two choices, but the scallops that were subbed were yummy! Caesar salads were perfect, bread was warm and flaky and drinks were on point (get the orange creamsicle- trust me). Hubby’s filet was cooked just as ordered and he enjoyed some of my yummy mashed since there was more than I could eat! Alex was our server and he was a delight! Service was excellent! We will definitely be back to enjoy their regular menu. :)

    Wonderful date night experience! We were glad to finally make it here to Oak. We were immediately seated upon arrival which is always a plus. Our waiter Sam was excellent, very attentive and knowledgeable. The oyster Rockefeller were fresh indeed. My absolute favorite was the smoked salmon appetizer (lox) I don't think I've ever had lox this fresh. It was amazing. The corn cake and sour cream really brought it home! The swordfish was juicy, well seasoned and fresh with the capers adding a delicious touch. The gnocchi was packed with flavor. The fresh veggies added a nice crunch to clash with the fresh pasta. The cocktails were nice and very well balanced. Not too heavy on the alcohol but not too light either. We will return to try what they're known for which are the steaks.

    Great ambience, decent food -- we expected a much better experience from the kitchen, particularly w Allen Brother's steaks. Kevin our server was good in the beginning, then became snarky. The 3 of us expected a memorable night out in a positive way... There are many better steak house's!!

    The ladies both had Oysters Rockefeller and thought there was too much breading, but the oysters were fresh and tasty. I had Ceasar dressing and thought it was a little dry and had too many leaves just from the top of the romaine lettuce and not enough stalk to give it body, (small issue but noteworthy). We shared two sides that were very good. We all had steaks that were very tasty and cooked perfectly. The service was excellent; friendly, efficient, and professional!

    Our dinner, to celebrate my husband’s birthday, was wonderful in every way. The food, service, ambiance…all just perfect! The beef carpaccio, sea scallops and tile fish were fantastic. We especially appreciated that the hostess (who was so busy on the evening before New Year’s Eve) took the time to find the perfect table for us. Don’t miss a great experience at Oak Steakhouse.

    First of all, our server, Broady, was wonderful. However, nothing else was wonderful. I turned back my brussel sprouts twice because they were raw. Literally could not stab them with a fork. The potato soufflé was laughable. Truly have never tasted anything worse. My husband ordered Taco Bell later that evening because we were still hungry. Lastly, the sides are NOT family style. I do not recommend.

    Overall it was a nice evening. Our server was great. We split the ribeye bone-in steak and it was well, just ok. Cool and dry. Mashed potatoes and mushrooms were awesome. Had to send back the brussels sprouts as they were underdone. The second batch was better, but still some sprouts were hit and miss.
