Wonderful place to celebrate!

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Oak for the second time with my wife, mom, and her companion. Arriving early, we got a drink at the crowded bar, packed on the day before Valentine's Day. Despite the large crowd, the bartender was very pleasant and efficient. We were seated on the second... read more

The atmosphere is good, old Charleston style. The food is excellent. Definitely try the onion soup. They also have a great cheese plate.

Perfect for a special night out. Service was outstanding. The Foie Gras App was great, the aged Striploin cooked to perfection. Different experience than Hall's. Desserts were off the charts good. All in all, a great spot for a splurge without the over the top feeling of Hall's. Highly recommend. Also, can't wait to try Macintosh. Jeremiah Bacon's other spot.

We absolutely loved our dining experience! We got in just after 5 on a Sunday and we're seated right away. The bottles of wine are half off on Sunday which was a huge bonus! Our porter recommended the perfect wine. Our waiter was fantastic and even sent us each a complimentary salad before dinner. We relaxed, took our time, and... More

My wife and I went out for an early Valentines day dinner. We have been by Oak several times without even knowing it was there. The facade is very unassuming and low key. (which we like) We showed up a few minutes early for our 6:30 reservations which we had requested weeks earlier to be seated in a certain waiters... More

I went to the Oak Steakhouse for a company dinner and was simply blown away by the place. It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. First of all the location is right on Broad St. in downtown Charleston near the water. It was formally a bank back in the day and was converted to a... More

Oak is an excellent restaurant. Outstanding service. Top rated wine list. The aged beef is quite pricey. 14oz Dry Aged Strip = $72.00. Not worth the upcharge over the wet aged, but different if you have never enjoyed a dry aged steak, at least once. Beef carpaccio was perfect. Marinins spot on.

Wonderful meal at the bar with drinks. Salad and grilled shrimp and a side of creamed potatoes. Perfect meal. The best part was the dessert of salted caramel apple cake with bourbon soaked raisins and ice cream. Wonderful staff !!!

Not only was the food over the top the service was right on par with the food! It was our anniversary and the staff made sure we had a romantic table and gave us that extra attention.

We went to Oak to celebrate a birthday and it did not disappoint. The restaurant was elegant and the dining room upstairs was lovely. The food was delicious and well worth the price. The steak was so tender and delicious. The service as phenomenal as well. If you need a fancy place, or are looking for a romantic dinner for... More
