The rustic and inviting ambience The Grand Oak Steakhouse & Bar cultivates is mirrored in its menu, featuring classic American fare. Starter options include the blue lump crab cake with black tiger shrimp, the roasted beet salad with watermelon relish and the pan-seared scallops with blood orange salsa. Popular entrees include the tender Grand Oak ribeye, the crispy Jidori Farm chicken breast with roasted eggplant and the vegetarian-friendly panisse with carrot puree, eggplant and tomato confit and cilantro pesto. The comfort food theme at The Grand Oak Steakhouse & Bar continues with the sweet and tangy strawberry shortcake for dessert.
The Grand Oak Steakhouse & Bar also has a popular Sunday brunch featuring menu items like the gruyere and vegetable frittata, the salmon and hollandaise laden eggs Norway and the fluffy Belgian waffles with fresh berries.
We are never disappointed when dining at the Grand Oak Steakhouse. The food is always outstanding and presented beautifully. This time there were six of us celebrating Valentine's Day, and we all loved the dinner and ambiance.
The Grand Oak Steakhouse and Bar is a wonderful location for a great meal in a peaceful and serene setting. While the Highland Resort is aging, the Grand Oak Steakhouse has been modernized and works hard to accomodate special requests.
Had the three course prefix for $35. Complete steal for what's on offer. Wine list has been reduced quite a bit, but overall well balanced with a few good picks. Will be back soon!
all was excellent, the food, the service, and the ambience. however, dessert was a disappointment. lemon pie wedges were very small and the filling very tart.
consider taking your dessert choice somewhere else.
I went with 2 of my girlfriends for Brunch. We were there around noon and it was not too busy. The decor is outdated and the wall with pictures should be torn down to make it all windows so that everyone has a great view of the lavender fields!
The service was INCREDIBLE and the food was so good! I had the Eggs Benedict and a side of potatoes. Will definitely return!
My fiance, David Guzman, has already emailed and addressed our issues we had with our waitress.
The only thing I would add is what happened to the bread & butter or a glass of water? Why did we have to ask for our glass of wine that comes with the meal? It was not offered. And the mashed potatoes had no flavor
Was disappointed this time.
I enjoyed the Restaurant very much. I brought 7 others for a very enhoyable Birthday celebration. It was so nice I decided to bring another friend to introduce her to the Inn.
We were not able to sit in the restaurant but had to sit in the bar area. It was much too light for dinner, the tables were close together, the menu was limited we still enjoyed it only not nearly what was expected.
Great service, attentive without being intrusive. Pianist playing in the dining room. Excellent butternut squash soup. Steaks were good, steak sauce a little sweet but who puts steak sauce on a top quality steak? Would have preferred more of the herb butter that came with the rolls rather than sauce. Accompanying vegetables were a good assortment including roasted parsnips and brussel sprouts. Certainly no need to order aditional side of vegetables. I would of liked them to be a little hotter. Steaks were very good. Two double lamb chops were a substantial serving. Would have liked them more rare but then most people would like them medium. The star of the meal was the dessert tapas. They would outdo anything in LA or San Diego. Included were a tart tropical sorbet that was a good refreshing contrast to the dark chocolate mousse, creme brulee, beignet with warm chocolate sauce and a great apple gelle.
A good experience out in Cherry Valley.
Dating can be a challenge in picking a place. My Date and I dined in the quaint little bar off the side to the main room. The atmosphere was wonderful, staff was friendly, and the meal was excellent! The lavender inspiration was a neat touch and hearing the history was memorable. My date and I were even speaking on behalf of making and evening to stay the night in this mini peaceful getaway. Total thumbs up. Great for new daters... :)
We decided we'd be coming back each Christmas, because it's always a pain to find someplace special enough for our group, and this one fits the bill wonderfully! They even took notes to always give us the table we like for next Christmas. Great food, great service, friendliness and accommodations. We love the Grand Oak.
I often feel I don't get my money's worth at buffets so when our 10 person family group was looking for somewhere to have breakfast together we thought we'd try the Grand Oak. It was amazing, they allowed us to share dishes (try the fruit salad) and we were able to choose from a selection of unusual and wonderfully flavorful dishes. They had some very fun adult beverages as well for the holiday season. We didn't find a single dish we didn't enjoy and with there being 10 of us (two children) we tried almost all of them. I loved the fruit salad, enjoyed the frittata... and tasted the German pancake and french toast. I think the french toast was my least favorite. When I make it I do soak it in egg, this had a very very surface coating that hardly went in to the bread itself so yeah... it was OK, but I think that one could have been done better.
You won't be disappointed, it was nice in the dining room... we were able to all talk and hear each other and the fields outside are scenic. I hear they're more scenic in the spring when the lavender is blooming.
Great place to go when you want a nice aged quality steak and or just a nice place to eat with great entertainment. The staff are always very friendly and polite. Tanya, thanks for the great service and laughs. We had a great time. This was our second time there and we are never disappointed.
My wife & I decided to eat here for my birthday. It was not our first time, but it was our best time. The food( scallops, salads & steak) was delicious, but the highlight was the service. Everyone was so kind and we were even offered a glass of very good Champagne as a birthday gift. There was music in the bar and it was a delightful evening.
The title says it all. Change Grand Oak Steakhouse to Grand Oak Restaurant. I make much better steaks at home. Not an exaggeration. Not evenly cooked, slightly dry and no... NO flavor. Won't be back.
Six of us celebrated a 40th Birthday dinner. The decor and location is a throw back to gentler times. The food was good the atmosphere grand and our waiter Sam was attentive tho he did forget our Birthday dessert. I would still recommend this unique venue.
