Best steak in Charleston

Service and the quality of the steak is the best that you will find, any where!!!. Period. I love the valet parking and drinks are stiff. My G & T was top shelf. I eat here once a year while I visit the city. A can't miss dinner.

Party of two. Promptly greeted and directed to our seat. Waiter was friendly and attentive. I ordered the Jumbo Lump Crabcakes and my boyfriend ordered the steak. Both were delicious. We finished up with the tiramisu, it was divine. It took a little over an hour and half to eat but the food was perfect and the dimly lit warm... More

Very impressed with the steaks and service in this unique, multi-level restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere in an old country inn type setting. Portions were ample without being overbearing. Everything was prepared precisely to order. Nice selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle. Sides are well prepared and add to the meal experience. Would repeat in a heartbeat. Prices...

We came here for happy hours. We sat at the bars and picked couple of their special happy hour menu. Everything that we picked simply delicious. I love the steak slider which was mouth watering, tasty and so tender. Couldn’t have enough of it. The bartender’s very friendly and she made her own mixed for me and taste delicious. I... More

I dont need to get into detail here. The location, decor, food quality and the feel of the restaurant are top shelf. Only need to say this. Ive eaten here for 10 years. 8-12 times its been a full fledged great experience. The food menu is awesome throughout. My recommendation, while not convenient is this....... When you arrive, have no... More

Located a litte south of th restaurant district in town, this cozy location is great for couples who enjoy a really good steak. A little noisy on the first floor but you can go to the second floor for a conversational envvronment. The prices are high but worth the experience. Take out is available.

We selected Oak Steakhouse over another popular steakhouse in Charleston because other reviews said it was quieter. Overall, people didn't seem to be particular about dress, but I noticed more guys wearing ties and women wearing dresses than at several of the other high end restaurants.

My wife and I (a little tired of Charleston's wonderful seafood) happened into this lovely find just a 10 minute walk from our hotel (The Vendue). My wife had the Caesar salad with steak while I opted for the rib steak, both dishes prepared flawlessly and cooked to order, served by a friendly, knowledgeable waiter. I opted for the 'wet'...

We live in Charleston, there are lots of very good restaurants. This is one of the best. It was a special occasion for the two couples - it included a birthday and an wedding anniversary. We had the Chef's Choice special -- perfect for four people. Started out with Oysters Rockefeller - baked differently then any of us ever had... More

Oak steakhouse is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. While it is pricey the staff and the quality of food exceeded my expectations. Since my initial, visit I've been back several times with each trip being equally as impressive. The staff knows the menu very well and is able to make quality recommendations for appetizers entrées and... More
