    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!
    Oak Steakhouse - HighlandsResponded 1 day ago
    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.

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Oak Steakhouse, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience. I would gladly give this restaurant a five-star rating. One of the highlights of our evening was the impeccable service provided by Trevor, our server. From the moment we walked in, Trevor greeted us with a warm smile and made us feel right at home. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to ensure that our dining experience was nothing short of extraordinary. Trevor's attention to detail was evident throughout the entire evening. He guided us through the menu, offering insightful recommendations and answering all of our questions with great expertise. His friendly demeanor and genuine enthusiasm added a delightful touch to our dining experience. Not only did Trevor provide excellent service, but the food at Oak Steakhouse was also exceptional. Each dish was beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. The attention to quality ingredients and culinary craftsmanship was evident in every bite. From the perfectly cooked steak to the delectable side dishes, every element of our meal was executed with precision and care. The ambiance of Oak Steakhouse was elegant and inviting, creating a wonderful atmosphere for an unforgettable dining experience. The staff, including Trevor, worked seamlessly together to ensure that every guest felt valued and well taken care of. Overall, I highly recommend Oak Steakhouse for its outstanding service, delectable cuisine, and inviting ambiance. Trevor's exceptional service truly elevated our dining experience and left a lasting impression. We look forward to returning to Oak Steakhouse in the near future.
