Worst burger ever. Salat was OK My side fries where burned and much too salty. Beef was cooked as ordered, but not seasoned and tasted strange. Burger was poorly composed between the buns. For 18 USD you should expect much more. This place might be OK for Steaks and wine bottles where offered for the half price. No wonder why.... More

While in Charleston, we had dinner at the Oak Steakhouse. The atmosphere at the restaurant is warm and friendly, our waiter was friendly and knowledgable, and our meal was delicious. The guys both ordered the aged, bone-in rib eye and stated that it was excellent - cooked as ordered and very flavorful. The women enjoyed their meals as well -... More

If you don't mind the hustle and bustle of this beautiful and slightly loud restaurant, you will not be dissapointed. We had a fairly large group and our server, Josh, did an amazing job with answering our questions, making recommendations and providing us great service. It was restaurant week and I ordered the Beef Tenderloin with a crab cake. I'll... More

Went last night for Restaurant Week and had a great meal. Service was super. Generous pour on the wine by the glass. Steak was absolutely perfect. With the brick walls and concrete floor, the noise level was quite high and I don't know how they can reduce it. My table tip is to try and avoid the tables close to... More

We ate here during restaurant week. We are locals, well-traveled, and love food and wine. SERVICE: Very good and attentive on a busy evening. ATMOSPHERE: Good, but compared to some of the other high end places in town, it could be improved, by perhaps an update in lighting, paint and/or by the addition of table cloths and flowers and/or better...

We visited Oak during Restaurant Week so it was quite busy. The special menu for prix fixe was good. Our server, however, was anything but warm and inviting. His attention to a table of 6 and interaction with them drew him away from our table. The temperature of our entrees hinted that they were delayed in being served.

This was our first time coming to Oak steakhouse. They had a nice Restaurant Week menu plus you could order off the regular menu. Service was very good and our meals were good! We had a nice dinner and a good time.

We haven't been to Oak Steakhouse for a few years, so took advantage of Charleston Restaurant Week for a return visit. It was absolutely fabulous. We had a great booth in the entrance area on the first floor, which had a great vibe. The Broad and Stormy, a variation the Dark and Stormy (Jameson whiskey instead of rum) was remarkably... More

We sat upstairs where we had the room to ourselves for a time. Had a nice view. We started with martinis and seared scallops which were excellent. Instead of steaks, we had pork chops and the pasta, with sides of asparagus and salad. We absolutely loved everything. The waiter had excellent wine recommendations. Service was wonderful. We plan on going... More

Sat down stairs next to the bar and it was noisy. Would recommend sitting upstairs. They have an elevator. Service was excellent. Especially Jared
