Drew was great, the service was good but not exceptional. My biggest complaint is that I had food left over and after telling Drew I wanted to take it home he neglected to box it up and bring me my left overs.

Everyone already knows the food is incredible.
Service was the best! That night was hard rain with flooded streets and limited transportation available from our hotel. We called ahead to inform them our ride was going to be late. Unlike other restaurants that quote you their “15 minute policy “, the hostess was completely understanding, making sure we knew that our table will be held….she was great! She even kept our request for seating, so thank you!

Also, more accolades for our waiter, Adam, who was not only an expert at his job, but went out of his way beyond expectations! For instance, since it was almost impossible to get a ride back to the hotel at the end of our dinner, we had to hurry out when the chance arose on short notice to grab a ride. In doing so, we left our doggie-bag behind. In the car, we lamented about forgetting it (bones for our dogs), but when we arrived at our hotel I got a phone call from Adam!

Adam took our leftovers with him when he left the restaurant that night and delivered it to our hotel!! Seriously, who does that ? Thank you VERY MUCH Adam! You helped make our evening as perfect as it could be.

This is my second visit to the Oak. The bread was definitely not something special, it was a warmed crusty roll with everything bagel seasoning sprinkled on. Appetizer options are very limited and underwhelming, we didn't like any of the options and passed. I had the prime rib which was outstanding in flavor and texture, perfectly cooked. My daughter had the filet Mignon it was cooked to the proper temp she ordered, Med Rare it was chewy/dry and lacked in flavor. Family sides are small portions and not as good in comparison to other well known top steakhouses in Charleston. Crème Brule' was delish. Cocktails were ok but not the best and over priced at $14.
When I am paying top dollar, I expect excellent quality and a little bit of a wow factor that makes it worth it to return. Will chose another top rated steakhouse next time.

Oak is one of our favorite restaurants in Charleston and our visit on 6/9 did not disappoint. We were celebrating my wife's Birthday and the staff made sure that we had a very pleasant experience. Both steaks were cooked perfectly as usual and we had zero complaints about any of the food or service!

Each year I take a group of my graduating high school students to dinner, as my farewell gift to them. Each year, Oak Steakhouse, leaves my students in awe. They are impressed with the atmosphere at first, but then, when they taste the food, they are blown away. I like to have them try different foods than their usual fare, and we always start with the Oysters Rockefeller. One of my students said she thought she would cry, "I have never tasted ANYTHING this good in my life". Another student, after tasting the jalapeno cornbread, stated, "it's gonna break my Grandma's heart, when I have to tell her, she doesn't make the best cornbread in the world anymore, cause I've tasted the best, and it's right here."
Each year they are resolved to work hard when they go away to college, so they can land a good job that will allow them to come back to Oak whenever they want (which is my intent with these outings, impressing on them that with hard work, they can enjoy the special things in life).
I have been a regular, and frequent patron over the years. I have never had a disappointing meal at oak, and I doubt that I ever will. Thanks again for living up to my expectations, and for making the evening special for my students.

We LOVED it! We shared the scallops app, the mixed grill with a side of mushrooms. Plenty for two people. I don't ever like steak sauce but this one I could have drank! Dessert was the chocolate cake and GF strawberry cheesecake. They said they could easily accommodate my Celiac. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and checked on us discreetly. Will definitely go back.

Be prepared to spend $$$ I didn’t know that the main steaks don’t come with sides, you have to buy those separately. Every single bite was amazing and the service was top notch

Wasn’t the best food I’ve tasted since I’ve been here. The onion straws was way to salty and they give you 2 scallops for twenty bucks and they were bland and not cooked well. My husband had the steak which was ok nothing to brag about in other words price did not reflect the hype of the food take your money elsewhere

We had a fabulous meal last night. We were greeted by a friendly hostess originally from Baltimore. We were seated on the third floor. Our waiter was awesome. He was friendly and helpful with our selection. For an appetizer we ordered Oyster Rockefeller, hands down the best I’ve ever tasted. I could have ordered them for my entree. They were rich in flavor. For my entree I had the crab cakes; lots of crab meat and crispy on the outside. We also had the 8 oz filet- cooked to perfection. The filet was tender and the best in Charleston. We finished our meal with creme brûlée. A perfect dessert to end our meal. The whole experience was delightful from the service to the taste of our food. I highly recommend visiting this fine dining during your visit to Charleston. I think our waiter was Alan, I’m terrible with names so please forgive me if I’m wrong.
