    We could not have asked for a better dining experience. The food was delicious, our server was attentive but not overly attentive. It was relaxing and we could carry on a conversation without competing to be heard over other diners.

    Portions were tiny for the price you pay. Literally 60$ for a 2oz steak side not included. My wife and I thought it was a sample and we were in shock when we realized it was the actual entree

    I've been to many high end steak houses and this one tries to present itself that way. However, it falls slightly below the mark for the prices they are charging. I'm not sure if it was the water or the glass itself that had a bad smell to it, but that needs to be addressed. My steak was slightly overcooked, I expect perfection at this price range...this is not Outback. I found myself comparing it to St. Elmo's Steak house in Indianapolis, but they are missing that mark a bit. Also, they charge for each item. So, you spend $72 on a steak and then $12 on the garlic potato puree. At St. Elmo's the cost is roughly $68 for the same steak plus a navy bean soup and a potato of some type. With the steak cooked to perfection, EVERY time. I can also tell that they judge people based on how they are dressed. Never judge a book by it's cover. Some of the wealthiest people in our state just aren't concerned about looking wealthy, but rather making and then spreading that wealth. It is a good flavored steak, but I wouldn't drive an hour and a half to eat it. I'd rather drive 9 hours to Indianapolis and have St. Elmo's.

    My sister and I split a Med Rare NY Strip. When we complained it was over cooked, the wonderful waiter explained that the dry age beef just looks browner but is correctly cooked. The crab cake appetizer, bread, my friends scallops and even the drinks were fantastic. However, we were extremely disappointed in the overcooked, not juicy, steak. I was also slightly disappointed that it was mentioned it was my birthday when the reservations were made and there was absolutely no mention of the celebration during dinner.

    Okon (we think that is his name) is the BEST!!! We have had the pleasure of him being our waiter every time we have had dinner at the Red Oaks. He makes us feel special and provides excellent service as does everyone we have had contact with while dining. The experience keeps us coming back. See you again on 12/29/22.

    Great experience. Need entry/exit doors closer to restaurant whereas you don't have to endure sooo much casino. Fabulous art. It was a special occasion celebration with my 94 year old Mother. Was offered an escort to our car since safety is a huge issue in Pine Bluff. Total professionalism from the Maitre'd Jimmy to our escort out. Also appreciated Jimmy's review of the art work!

    One of the worse experiences that my family and I have had. Found a hair in my butter and all the waitress said was I’ll have to let them know. Never apologized or said anything else about it. Also when I made the reservations I informed them that it was my wife’s birthday and never did they mention it. Steve Landers referred us and we will not be back.

    Birthday dinner for youngest son. Katherine was our server and recognized us as she has been our server before. She is always very nice and attentive, other assistant staff as well. Drinks, water always refilled promptly. Noise level is always fine and atmosphere is nice. Lovely meal. 3 delicious steaks and sides. My only negative is that for the area it’s a bit pricey at over $100 per person. But that includes a nice wine and a dessert.

    This was a nice place but a little too expensive for the quality. I had the bison ribeye, medium rare. It was prepared just as requested and had an excellent texture but was badly oversalted. While I do prefer my steak, whether bison or beef, to have a little added flavor beyond just the meat, that can easily be overdone. Remember, salt (and this applies to other seasonings) can be added later if short but can't be taken out once cooked in there. That seems like a very easy rule to follow to avoid overdoing it but was somehow ignored. The salad presentation was also disappointing. Maybe it's a "trendy" thing to do nowadays in fancy restaurants, but I have no interest gnawing at a big chunk of lettuce as was the case here. Normal, chopped/shredded pieces next time, please. At least the taste was acceptable, I guess. The sides were good but hardly impressive. I added lobster to the mac & cheese, but I barely noticed a difference, especially to account for the additional $9 cost. The main highlights were an appetizer (fried oysters w grits) provided on the house evidently due to an order mix-up at another table (though I'm not 100% sure the reason) and the bottled water. The setting was nice and service was fantastic, but if I'm going to drop nearly $270 (total of meal/tax/tip) for just two people on a meal, I'd prefer to come away with a much fonder vibe of the food I consumed. I almost want to try again and order a few different items to see if this trip was just bad luck and I get a better dining experience with another go at it, but I can say honestly I'm not exactly hankering for a repeat trip. I wish this place well and hope it succeeds but gotta say it doesn't look good when there were only like 5 tables seated on a Friday evening.

    The quality of the food has consistently dropped over the last 2 months. The lobster has been raw on the last 2 visits, the crab cakes are now smaller, no longer have the large chunks of crab and were served cold in the middle. The steaks are extremely salty and not consistently cooked to the desired temperature. The shrimp cocktail came out with small, very seasoned and grilled shrimp. Jumbo shrimp cocktail should come out with cold jumbo shrimp. We have eaten at Red Oak once a week for the last 4 months, and at least once a month for the last year, and it is sad to see such a decline in this restaurant. The only really good meal we have had there in the last 2 months was when the new head chef was on vacation. The service and the deserts are the only thing right now that Red Oak has going for it.
