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.

    My wife and I came in for dinner and had a wonderful meal and great service by Susan. We’re fairly regular here at the restaurant and especially enjoy the onion soup and the menu variety.

    Absolutely love the atmosphere and the food! We had the goat cheese balls and the Brussels sprouts as appetizers and they were delicious! We had the apple pecan salad and the grilled Cesar salad as entrees and both were absolutely delicious! Sue was a phenomenal server and we absolutely loved the experienced. Will be back again!

    My wife and I had the New Year's specials. My wife had the chicken marsala and I had the salmon special. Both were extraordinary! We have been to Oak Stave many times before and always enjoyed it, but this was definitely the best dinners we have had there!

    Went here for New Year’s Eve dinner. My daughter had the steak, my son had the smashburger, my husband ordered the chicken sandwich and I ordered the salmon. We also ordered the calamari and the fried goat cheese. All of the food was prepared perfectly and it was delicious. We ended the meal with the best dessert “ooey gooey” cake which we all shared and was one of the best desserts I’ve had in a long time. Our server, Parker, was attentive and descriptive about our drinks and entrees and we had a wonderful experience. We will be back.

    Great service and atmosphere. Under impressed with small, overcooked fried calamari. Not one to send for back. Entree was better.

    Very loud. Best thing was the onion soup. Salad was good. Calamari needs work. Spinach flatbread not hot. Wanted a hot drink but settled for regular coffee. You were out of Decaf
