Some ups and downs

Steak was good, cooked over a wood fired grill that was tasty. The birthday boy however ordered the Alfredo pasta. It was bad! The cream had gone sour. We... read more

The waiter was very kind and the meat they serve is simply wonderful. I think they are cheap for the big portion they serve. I suggest it!

We had dinner here on a Saturday night and were able to be seated right away. The service was a little slow but nothing that would keep me from returning. We did ask the server in the beginning to split the bill and that wasn't done but overall, good experience and I would return.

The Oak Pit has reopened. Just ate there on 12/8 Sunday. The entire menu has changed. If you are looking for the old Oak Pit fare, you will not find it. They don't have lobster or Alaskan king crab as before, but they still have prime cut steaks. Their fish choices are also slim. We were the only diners in... More
