I ordered a sweet tea and decided I wanted a soda. The server charged me for both beverages even though it was the same price. Wouldn’t have been nice to know prior I would be charged.

Food is amazing as always.

We go almost every Saturday for brunch. And literally every time they act shocked and unprepared when people walk in at 10:00 for their reservation. They are scrambling, still setting up, turning on music and always have a reason that you can’t dine outside. Other than that it’s always enjoyable.

If you're familiar with The Cork and Pig, imagine the same food quality and service at the Red Oak without the high level of noise. It was a perfect place for a quiet date.

First visit to Red Oak and it was a success. The wood smoke smell is light and inviting when you walk in. Terrific Happy Hour small plate menu at very reasonable prices. The Rock Shrimp and Deviled Eggs were very, very good. The service at our table was outstanding - efficient, attentive and friendly yet not overbearing. The entrees (salmon and pork chops) were plated beautifully and my guests reported back with "happy plates." My only criticism is of the prime rib. My cut was not very tender and was dry. But I've long ago learned not to spurn a restaurant over one dish. I'll be back to Red Oak and continue to travel down the menu. Well done, folks.

We really enjoyed our food, but the service was less than stellar. Our server disappeared after our food was delivered and we waited for at least 20 minutes to get our check. Coffee cup was filled once, and no one ever came back by to refill it again.

We went for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. Highly recommend the pork chop and green chilaquiles. My husband enjoyed the chicken and waffles - he did find the chicken (not the batter) to be a little salty. Latte with almond milk was really good. Our server was attentive and helpful.

Super cute restaurant!! I loved the trendy decor. It has indoor, outdoor, bar, and upstairs seating. We sat upstairs and it was super quiet and lovely. There was also a TV upstairs which my husband was excited about! The food was AMAZING! I had Mexican city enchiladas and my husband had a ribeye. Both were fantastic! We had banana cream pie for dessert and it was delicious! Our waitress was super friendly and did a great job without hovering. Highly recommend this place!

Nicer than most options in Midland/Odessa but still a little disappointing.
We were seated immediately. Interior is sort of industrial/loft. More upscale customers than in other Midland/Odessa restaurants.
Limited menu. Ordered a glass of white wine which was room temp at best. Ordered the Trio dip. No description at all on the menu as to what the 3 dips were so had to ask waitperson. Appetizer arrived but no appetizer plates, napkins or utensils. While dips were adequate, there was nothing exciting about them. There were not nearly enough chips on the dinner plate sized platter. Waitress was going to remove even though there was more than half of each dip left. We asked for more chips, which she brought. We had barely taken 3 bites of appetizer when entree's arrived. This is when we had to ask for silverware. I got the ahi tuna salad. tuna portion was good but salad was very small. More like a side salad and it was priced at $17. Daughter got French Dip, which she said was good. Pace of service needs to slow down a bit. We were finished in 20 minutes. Would have liked to linger longer. Would have gotten another glass of wine if entrée hadn't come so quickly after appetizer. Probably will not return.

We were celebrating Mother's Day. We were placed on the patio, against our wishes, which was too hot for my mom (who is 75 years old).
We have eaten here at least twice a month since it opened and we were terribly disappointed in the food and the service.
We will not be returning for a long time.

Red Oak Kitchen is my favorite restaurant in the Midland Odessa area. We live in Midland, but it's definitely worth the drive. All of the menu items are good, but we have our favorites. Cornbread, California Chicken Salad, Enchiladas, and Prime Rib are all some of our favorites. My husband loves their mimosa, and I love their cappuccino. We also love the atmosphere. It's really cozy. If you like bananas, the banana cream pie is delicious! I wish they had one more dessert option - something chocolate or caramel for my husband 😊
