    The food was delicious! We had oysters,ribeye, mushrooms and the most delicious hot rolls and butter. The waiter was point on with wine selection and dessert choice of caramel cake. We arrived early for a sunset drink and we were seated right on time. It was busy and loud but a really fun atmosphere.

    We love Oak Steakhouse and couldn’t have had a better evening for our Party of 10! Our food was delicious and the awesome people at the Oak took great care to make sure we had everything we needed. Chip was on the ball as always, and made our dining experience wonderful. If you have any question of dining at the Oak, question no more. Give it a try~ You won’t be disappointed!

    This was our 1st time at The Oak Steakhouse. We had a wonderful birthday celebration meal. I got the pork shank and my husband got the bolognese. Both great. The brussel sprout side was unique and tasty. Will be getting that again. Amanda was our server. Her recommendations were much appreciated. We will definitely be back soon.

    Valentine's night was busy at Oak and may have overwhelmed the kitchen. Our order was mixed up, wrong food was delivered, and re-delivery took a long time, with venison undercooked and pork shank cooked too quickly. Salad and complimentary tartare were excellent. The service was very good and the restaurant came through in a big way by comping our meals. We have always had good experiences at Oak and will return, perhaps on a less busy night!

    Thanks for the review, Bahnson! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Oak, especially the complimentary tartare and the service. We apologize for the mix-up with your orders and the overcooked venison and pork shank. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and we're glad to know that despite the busy night, you still found our service excellent. We look forward to serving you again soon, perhaps on a quieter night, to provide a more serene dining experience.

    Venison Wellington is one of our favorites and it fell short this time. Heavy, flat breading; not cooked properly. Wife ordered medium rare and it was cold red so she sent it back. At your prices we expect better.

    We had a fantastic experience at Oak Steakhouse in Highlands for our Anniversary/Babymoon trip over the weekend. From our first encounter at the front desk being greeted so kindly to our server, Trevor, who was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful, and not to mention the superb appetizers, entrees and dessert, it was a clear 10/10 experience for us. I would highly recommend anyone visiting the area to try out the place, you will not be disappointed! Thank you to the staff for a wonderful experience that we’ll remember for years to come!

    We were welcomed very nicely, shown to our table and ordered. Problem came with the food. While my meat was quite good, the fries were barely warm and well cooked. I ordered the drunken mushrooms. They were tasty for Cold mushrooms. I was going to send them back but we ended up just leaving them. My husband had the trout, he said it was tasty, but too much garnish. The salad was very good and both of us enjoyed it. It was more than enough for two people. It was my birthday, and all in all ,the desserts were better than the meal. We were disappointed since we had heard good things, but we can not recommend it as a dining experience. the service was good, and I realize that the staff could not do anything about the noise level. It was very loud.

    We had a group of 7 for brunch and everyone had a fantastic dish. I highly recommend the Bloody Mary and Chip our server. Big portions and reasonable prices.
