Everything about our evening was excellent. What made the night was our waiter Brian aka Chowder. He was awesome. Food recommendations right on point. Very informative on all our questions. Look forward to going back to Oak on our next visit!

Oak is always amazing and never disappoints! We were there for my daughters 12th birthday - out of town guests - and they treated us so well! So much attention was paid to my daughter! Chris was an awesome waiter! Perfect night!

Excellent service and food. Average dining room for downtown Charleston. Bread service was not very tasty and was the only subpar part of the evening.

Excellent steak in an excellent setting. I booked a reservation at the start of the week and was sat with my wife at the table looking out on Broad St. It was a perfect setting for our 6th anniversary. Would highly recommend going here whenever you're looking for a steak in Charleston.

We have dined at Oak in the past and loved it. The food was still very good, our server had nice suggestions for wine. But the first person to greet us was the not so friendly hostess, I observed her be fake nice, to a person on the phone wanting a large group reservation and told them to hold while she "checked" and her tone changed a lot to, this people on the phone want.... as if they were bothering her. Then presided to go back to the people and say no, no one was here to help, call back. Our friends, my husband and I, dine out often, I don't think someone being rude, in my opinion sets a good tone for your meal. Again our server and meal were very good, front of the house not so much.

From the valet parking, to the friendly bar, to the efficient and knowledgable service, to the high quality tasteful food....everything about this experience was perfect. Thank you Oak for making our “post Valentine” night very memorable.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Oak Steakhouse this past week. Our waiter Dave was excellent, very attentive yet allowed us to linger with our drinks and meal. I ordered the filet, my husband the ribeye. Our steaks were fabulous, seasoned nicely and cooked to perfection. The house salad is a favorite as well. We will be back often.

Highly recommend this place. Bone in rib eye was simply top notch as were the appetizers and sides we ordered. Solid and friendly service. Best to book in advance.

We go to Oak almost every Valentine's Day and Restaurant Week. We had an 8:30pm reservation and were seated reasonably on time. Our server was prompt, friendly, and professional. The food is always high quality. We will be back again.

Food and service were excellent but I thought the prices were too high. Good place to go if you want to impress somebody. Steaks were excellent.

Our second visit was just as great as the first. The Mixed Grill was delicious from the first bite to the last and it was large enough to share. Service was excellent and we really enjoyed sitting in the front room on the 3rd level. You can experience three levels of dining and we prefer quite dining and conversation. I can't wait for our next visit.

We've eaten at Oak many times over the past few years and have never had a bad meal. Our waiter Sam and the others in the waitstaff were attentive, but not intrusive. The floor manager (?) Herman checked on us occasionally to ensure everything was acceptable.

The steaks were seasoned and cooked to perfection. The salads were fresh and tasty. The sides (whipped potatoes and roasted mushrooms couldn't have been better.

Oak is one of our favorite restaurants and I highly recommend it.

While my steak was cooked as ordered, my wife was overly done...looked like shoe leather.
Vegetables not very palatable, Broccolini way too tough. Desert while presented well, was only fair at best. cheesecake crust was too thick and hard.

We were a bit disappointed with the service. Definitely not somewhere we’d want to come visit again. If you’re idea of going to a nice steakhouse includes being catered to and feel special, you won’t find that here.

The third floor has a nice sense of relaxation and intimacy in a lovely setting. Service was timely and not intrusive. Food was prepared to our order and the wine list offered a nice variety of options.
