To complement the menu, Oak’s expansive wine list features California Cabernet and Old World reds, including a selection of Italian and Spanish wines, as well as an array of artisanal domestic wines. In celebration of Highlands’ local brewery scene, Oak Steakhouse showcases local brews alongside domestic and international beers. Classic and creative, seasonal cocktails are also on the menu.

    We always have a great experience at Oak and tonight was no exception. Food was delicious and Shauna took excellent care of us as always. Steaks and wine were excellent, but the service was even better.

    This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. Wonderfully warm service, and among the best steaks I have eaten. Be aware that the sides are quite large, so you may not want to order as much as you might think.

    We always enjoy the Oak Steakhouse in Charleston and were happy to see that had a restaurant in Highlands. The service and food were outstanding. From our cocktail at the bar served by Christine to our delicious meal served by Breanna. We both had the steak and frites and the steaks were cooked perfectly. Melt in your mouth good. We ended our meal with some delicious mango sorbet. It was top notch from start to finish.

    The setting can’t be beat in that area: stylish, welcoming, nostalgic, mountain views. The service was quite good! Our server was prompt, helpful, professional, not intrusive or pushy. The food was good but the prices were 50-70% higher than in Asheville at restaurants of similar or superior quality. My strongest suggestion for improvement would be to reduce the portions as even grown, large men were overwhelmed with the quantity of food which left no room to try appetizers or enjoy dessert. Cut the prices along with cutting the portions and patrons will spend the money they saved on entrees on other menu items.

    We loved our evening at Oak Steakhouse to celebrate my birthday! Our server Rob was so gracious and recommended the best items on the menu. The vibe of the whole place is superb. The lobby is so festive with the sparkly lights. Our food was out of this world. The elk Wellington was unlike anything I’ve ever had! My boyfriend had the filet and it was cooked to absolute perfection. Rob even brought a piece of cake with a candle for dessert.

    We had our Christmas Day lunch/dinner with 2 friends who we’re spending their first Christmas without husbands. Although, we had our reservation for 2 for quite a while, Oak was very kind and added them on very short notice. On arriving, the bartender acknowledged us by name and the hostess took us to the best table. Our waitress was outstanding and the food and drinks were just as good. Oak made Christmas Day very special for all of us. It is pricey, but you can’t put a price on perfection!

    We had an unusual cold front come through NC and this restaurant has no ability to put in space heaters. It was Xmas eve and we had reservations for weeks. They could have called and cancelled the reservation but instead we showed up and they offered the guests blankets. ? So naturally we ordered everything and wanted to leave sooner vs later. It was one thing when we were freezing but when my meal came out COLD? That was enough. The restaurant has two fireplaces up front, they could have relocated guests to near them and make the best of it but instead choose to enjoy the risk we endured to arrive, freeze then have a terrible meal. This is not an oversight but a managerial joke. Servers were great but damn, what a poor experience. I had the opportunity to speak with others who, during this cold front wanted to go to Oak Steakhouse. I was grateful to warn them off. We should have been called in advance. WHY is this different then any other emergency to CLOSE THE DAMN RESTAURANT??????

    Except for the crying babies beside outer table, which have a way of ruining the ambiance. Not sure where you could put those families, but away from parties of 2 would always be appreciated in my book.
