The Oak Stave
Although the portions were large, too large in my opinion, the quality and seasoning was mediocre at best.
Probably fine for lunch, the burgers looked good but not a great choice for supper.
Loved the tacos, and the french onion soup. Our waitress was outstanding and cleared our table as we ordered more food. We tried the pear martini and the blood orange martini...went down smoothly. Made reservations and glad we did!
Booked a last minute reservation and was surprised to see many available times. Whenever we drive past the restaurant, it's always packed. We arrived a bit early and were seated right away. Food was great! Many different items on the menu I would not normally order, such as the Pretzel coated chicken and bacon wrapped meatloaf. The Blood Orange Pineapple Margarita was outstanding but drinks are a bit pricier than other restaurants but well worth it! $12 for each Margarita and Old Fashioned. I plan on returning soon.
Great ambience and service! The music was directly above us, so it was a bit loud. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience!
Had a wonderful time at the Oak Stave. The waitress was friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent.....we took advantage of the Local Restaurant Week specials, so great value for an outstanding meal. The French Onion soup had good flavor, not too salty. We both had salmon......generous sized filet, done perfectly. The fish was juicy and the maple glaze was light....I had been worried it would be too sweet. It came with fingerling potatoes and asparagus.....both perfectly prepared. The salted caramel ice cream and brownie were perfect endings to this great meal. My mom and I will definitely be back.
Went for restaurt week, deal was good but $15.oo for a manhatan, and $12.00 glass a wine is robery!!
Everything was incredible!!
Thank you for your review. We look forward to seeing you again!
Nasty hostess. Server great!
Great menu an service. Will definitely be going back.
Thank you for reviewing us on your recent experience. we can not wait for your return!
Food and service were wonderful. Never a bad experience when dining here!
Thank you for such a wonderful review we look forward to seeing you time and time again.
A "new" stop for restaurant week. We expected bar food and we're pleasantly surprised with the menu. Food was great, server was attentive without being intrusive. The only negative was that we were in a booth in the back corner, so we didn't get to appreciate the decor. Overall, we were pleased and will be going back!
We are so happy you decided to come to The Oak Stave for restaurant week. We can not wait for you to come back and enjoy more of our amazing menu, Truffle Chicken is a house favorite!!
Nice bar atmosphere, bacon wrapped meat loaf was delicious
One of our house favorites is the bacon wrapped meatloaf, we are glad you enjoyed that as well. Come see us again soon. Thank you for the great review.
Be careful if you go for Football games, food order’s special are not for those who sit on the other side of the wall inside. The food was good, just was a surprise when the bill came. To her credit, the manager made it right, but if I didn’t escalate the concern, we would have been charged the higher price for the same food.
If it was clear how the deals worked, we would have just sat on the other side of the 1/2 wall. They were not busy and the service was good. The close out of the bill it what left the bad taste in our mouths... They took care of the problem, but pretty sure we won’t be back, there are many other places on Transit to go for games.
Food was delicious. This was our first time eating at The Oak Stave. Looking forward to coming in again.
Thank you very much for coming and checking us out. We are looking forward to serving you again as well.
Great place to go for date night or to sample some finer spirits. Sometimes the music is a bit loud for the clientele at the time. Pricing is mid to mid high but delicious. Would be great for a stag party!
Even though we had a reservation we waited a good 34-40 mins for our table. My dad who has a difficult time standing for long periods was very uncomfortable. The food was good. And the scotch impressive although overpriced.
The food was very good although my daughters burger had to be redone (way overcooked). And it took a long time to get our food. But once out, everything was great. I'd go back!
I am glad to hear we took care of the way the burger was cooked for your daughter. hope to see you again soon in the future.
Always have a great meal here! The food is worth the price.
thank you for checking us out. I'm glad you enjoy the food every experience you share with us.
Went for dinner at 715 and was seated right away. There were tables open so it was not full however the service was not as swift as one would have expected. It was not slow per se, however the server llwas not overly attentive and seemed to want to rush through everything. Food was good, not great. Overall decent experience but I doubt we would recommend to others. Go to Griffon Pub instead.
Sorry you did not enjoy your most recent experience with us. I hope you let us try to make this up to you with a better dining experience the next time you choose us. I will definitely speak to my staff to be sure that you should never feeled rushed while dining with us. I apologize. Hope to see you again.
Great food and atmosphere.
Every time we eat here it is delicious. We are never rushed, and the service is great.
The food was very good and our waiter Eric Grupp was excellent--he did everything he could to make us happy--
Thank you for your review. We hope to see you again soon.
Over the last several months, The Oak Stave has become one of our favorite places. We've brought friends there a few times, and they always like it as well. Some of our favorite foods are the Brussels sprouts, meatball (baseball size), giant soft Bavarian pretzel, and the burgers are some of the best we've ever had.
Thank you very much for this review. We are happy to have you keep bringing new guests here. Hope to see you again soon!
My husband and I went here for our 5 year wedding anniversary dinner, and we were both blown away at the exceptional service we received.
Thank you for choosing to come to celebrate such a wonderful milestone with us. We appreciate your positive feedback! hope to see you soon! Thank you.
Food was good. Service was very good. We ate outside on a peasant evening. As we left, we found that the noise level inside was a little high. bu the people seemed to be in good spirits. I would say, overall, it was a good evening out for us.
Thanks for your review of our establishment. I'm glad you enjoyed your time with us this evening and or inside guests did as well. :) We hope to see you again in the near future, Thank you again.
Have to get the cheesesteak eggrolls.
My husband and I tried the Oak Stave and we are so glad we did. The service was just what you'd want - very attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. The food was outstanding. We shared a beet salad and found it to be perfect. I had the poblano blackened salmon. Have you ever had a dish that was so good that you wake up the next morning thinking about how good it was? That was the poblano blackened salmon. I'm not sure how the chef managed to cook the fish in a way where it was not dry at all and was so tender and flavorful, but that's what it was. The sauce, rice, asparagus and corn went perfectly with the fish. My husband had a steak sandwich and raved about it. The portion sizes are just right. We will definitely be back.
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Our chef does do an amazing job with all of our entrees if I do say so myself. We hope you will visit us again in the near future and try some of our other great dishes. Thank you.
I am a recurring customer and each time the food has been fantastic. Very unique offerings along with traditional fare. Will come again!
Thank you very much for your positive review, we are glad you continue to be a patron of ours. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Thank you.
Clean, great patio, good service, good food reasonably priced
Thank you for taking time to review us. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thank you.
Came with a group of 6 people and sat on the patio. We all enjoyed the ambiance and the food was good. Only complaint would be service. Our server forgot to bring waters after asking twice. One of our friends ordered an appetizer that was never brought out (they ended up canceling the item). It was busy but not that busy. My husband and I had been here twice before and had good experiences. Maybe it was just an off night for the server. We would go again.
I had the roasted beet salad and it was huge, more then enough for dinner and lunch the next day. Plenty of beets and candied nuts in the salad. My husband had the Stave burger with the fried egg and his friend the Spicy nutty burger made with peanut butter and jelly. They both said the burgers were very flavorful and unique in taste. We also shared the Salted Carmel Banana split and it was enough for all three of us to share. We will definately be back to try other items on the menu.
Nice atmosphere. Food was good and our server was excellent.
Great meal, great service. Only drawback was service at bar by GM after meal for drinks...bit of an attitude.
The food wasn't as worth it for the price and I was somewhat disappointed in the taste of the food it felt average compared to what I was expecting. The restaurant was beautiful so I had my hopes up for a little more unique experience.
Great restaurant with over abundance of whiskey choices. Food was good with great selection.
We waited for quite a while after we were seated for a waiter. We finally flagged one down and he told us they were short staffed. It was a Saturday night at 7pm. When the food was delivered they did not bring us silverware. We had to wait again for a waiter to bring us silverware and napkins. The upside was the food was outstanding! They just need to staff better especially on a weekend.
Friendly staff, great food and drinks.
Staff was very accommodating. We were on our lunch hour and time was not a problem.
Great service! Large party was accommodated. Vegan options available.
Delicious food! Specialty drinks were fantastic! Love the extensive Whiskey and Bourbon list!
