    Had to wait 10 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. Bread and salad were satisfactory. Very loud. Difficult to carry on conversation at our table. Wait for entrees was completely unacceptable. Middle managerial staff unsympathetic and blaming. Steak when finally delivered was lukewarm at best. It was prepared perfectly however. Upper level manager was very apologetic and accommodating. Overall, less than enthusiastic about returning.

    Great service and our food was cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend. We went for our anniversary. The tables are really close together and you can hear everyone's conversations around you, but it was worth it for the food. Picked this place cause I thought we would have a view when we were eating, but I didnt really request that when I booked. Overall I would recommend for a nice dinner. Service was fast. We were in and out faster than a fast food place.

    The long and short of it is they charged $175/head for a multi-course event with beverage pairings. The first course was cold green beans second course was overcooked fish and the next course tomahawk steak that was good. The beverages paired were ordinary at best. Atmosphere was fantastic as was the service quality. I doubt I’ll ever do their “Night Under the Stars” events again as I can get better food at a better price inside their restaurant aside from the “special dinner”.

    As residents in the area, the Oak Steakhouse remains our ‘go-to’ restaurant. The ambiance of the mountain setting, the quality of food and its presentation, but especially the staff (Ace most notably) supports this opinion. Even our menu included a personal touch noting our 53 rd Wedding Anniversary. Elizabeth and her Manager even managed to remove a fallen tree that had blocked the driveway to the facility!…..Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. You won’t be disappointed……..RHN

    The chef and staff at Oaks Steakhouse in Highlands were Outstanding! Our every needs were met and the food was Exceptional! The bartender, Mike, was very knowledgeable about cocktails and had good suggestions for tastes we were looking for in a wine. Our waiter, Ace, was very personable and met our every needs!! We all marveled at the preparation and taste of the food!! We All, 4 of us, couldn’t say enough about how good the food was. Compliments to the Chef!! The big wood burning fireplace was where we gathered to have dessert and after dinner drinks. The perfect ending to a pleasant and enjoyable night! I highly recommend Oaks Steak House in Highlands!!
