The Oak Stave was founded in 2016 to serve as a gathering place for the hard-working men and women of their community. It's more than just a restaurant. It's a place where people are properly rewarded for a job well done. By itself, a stave is nothing more than a piece of wood. But together, staves make the barrel strong. They don’t get the attention that the whiskey in the barrel does, but they don’t need it, either.

The food was absolutely incredible! Flavors of the burgers worked excellent together and the preparation was exactly as ordered. We also had a wedge salad that was probably the best wedge I’ve ever had. Excellent service and a great drink selection too!

This is the second time we’ve gone to oak stave this year and both times it’s been great. The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is fun especially if you like many television screens. The desserts are incredible and the drink specials are tough to beat. We will definitely go back.

The food and our server Danielle were excellent! Visiting from the NYC area for the Easter holiday, we wanted to try a new place, mainly for the bourbon selection. We weren't disappointed, as far as the food and waitress service were concerned. What led to only 4 stars was the attitude of the seating hostess upon our arrival. I didn't know about the high tables, having never been there, so didn't think I needed to request lower seating. Our party included my father-in-law, who'd resently had a stroke, so we asked for a lower table when we realized we were being taken to a high table. The hostess grumbled and snippily said, "Nobody told me there was a need for a lower table. I'll see if I have anything since I have an 18 top coming." She made no eye contact and had a frown on her face the entire time. There was no need for this. She then placed us at a round table and said, "You'll have to squeeze in here." She practically slammed down the utensil sets and menus. I personally considered walking out due to her lack of professionalism, but I'm glad we didn't due to the fact the food and Danielle's service more than made up for the initial "greeting."

The food was great, but the service was definitely lacking. Neither my husband nor myself was offered a drink refill. Our waitress never checked on us to see how our food was. And we were done eating for at least 15-20 minutes before the waitress checked on us to see if we wanted desert or our check. She didn’t even bring us boxes for our food. The hostess noticed that we had been done for a while and she brought boxes and cleared our plates away.

Very noisy. People at our round table could not hear across it. The server was quite impatient and only took drink orders from half of the table. The food was not cooked as requested and was warm (not hot). Nothing exceptional on the menu. It was very busy but not very well staffed. At least we got separate checks asked.

I have been wanting to try this place since it opened. It did not disappoint. We had reservations at 5:00. I arrived a little early and sat at the bar. I asked the bartender to suggest a good drink and she recommended the smoked old fashion. She "smoked" the glass. The drink was amazing. We then sat in one of the cozy booths. It was restaurant week so we ordered the dinner for two which included a choice of wedge salad, onion soup or house salad. My friend had the onion soup which she said was the best she had and I had the wedge salad which was also delicious. I ordered the blackened salmon and she ordered the pretzel crusted chicken. The presentation of the food was beautiful, the food tasted amazing and the service was wonderful. I would highly recommend. We cannot wait to go back.

Solid place to get lunch/dinner/drinks with friends. Overall we had a good experience, but I would say the prices are a bit expensive. $18 for a chicken Caesar salad at lunch is a bit steep, but it was good.

It was a pretty decent experience, unfortunately we waited almost an hour to be seated. I had reservations for 7:30 and we weren’t seated until almost 8:30. That was pretty frustrating to wait that long with a group of 8 people. Reservations are made for a reason. With that being said, he food and service was exceptional. Too bad there was the issue with seating. Thanks.

We had dinner at the Oak Stave on 3/15/2019. We have been here before multiple times. The smoked old fashioned is perfect! I order that drink every time we go, and it is one of my favorite things on the menu...The burger and chips was also great. We also ordered a chicken dish with mashed cauliflower. The cauliflower was a little oily( maybe too much butter). Chicken was fine, nothing special.
We also had a great banana split and brownie for dessert, both delicious. The waitress took a while to greet our table, maybe just a busy Friday night.
I would definitely come back.

We got there very late after a concert so it was pretty empty. Had to order quickly before the kitchen closed at 11, but bartenders were courteous and attentive. My friend had one of the best Old Fashioneds she has ever had. All in all, a very good experience.

I follow a keto diet, very low carb, and the kitchen catered to my needs perfectly. The food was on the higher side of the salt content but I liked it. Not so with everyone at my table but the food was delicious. Maybe a touch less salt and pepper and let me add to my taste next time. Service was ok. Not super friendly but not off putting. Very robotic. But attentive and food came quick. Atmosphere was welcoming and warm. The space gets a bit loud when busy but not drowning out every word at our table.
