Been to Oak a number of times and with all my visits the food and service has been excellent. Must admit we tend to eat in the bar area, which is very much a local hangout, but a little noisy and busy. This trip it was salads, burgers and steak tartare! I know boring, but they are all so good... More

They serve first quality food, prepared perfectly. Had the filet with mushrooms and it was fantastic. Only drawback, a little loud.

Bring your appetite, and although you'll need a large budget , considering the quality and size of your meal. the value and service are EXCEPTIONAL. Think Charleston is just for seafood? Well, coupled with an amazing aged piece of beef, my steak topped with a half fresh lobster( a sight you'll never forget) is ,again, EXCEPTIONAL. Extensive wine list with... More

We had a great table on the third floor overlooking Broad Street. I would definitely request a table on the third floor as it will be quieter than on the first flor... More

I was really looking forward to our meal at Oak Steakhouse. We started off on the wrong foot when I asked the waiter if they could cook something in a separate pan due to my shellfish allergy & he immediately said something like "Are you kidding it's a Friday night & we have over 100 people to serve - No."...

We visited Oak while down on business and were very pleased with the food and service. I started my meal with one of the best Caesar salads I've ever had, followed up by the short ribs which were absolutely devine! The sides were delicious, especially the bacon mac & cheese. The others in our party enjoyed their steaks and grouper.... More

Are here recently. Service was good but not to the caliber of the price. My fault for not sending back the steak for being heavily salted.

This is my third visit. Have always been very happy with the food and service. Had the ribeye, which was tremendous! They didn't have the wine I wanted but the waiter suggested a wine that was infinitely better! Have to find the wine in a store, it was that good. Started with the Oysters Rockefeller, which are always excellent. My... More

Were in town for our anniversary and tried to make last minute reservations at Halls and Grill 225 with no luck. The bartender at Pearls told us that this place had better steaks anyway so we made the reservation. The service was top notch and did not disappoint. We had the 3lb tomohawk Ribeye for two. It was a little... More

Went to a private party of 20 at Oak Steakhouse. Fabulous, huge shrimp cocktails, and delicious chopped salads. The filet and rib eye steak were delicious, but the sides and bread missed the mark to give this place 5 stars. Rolls were like brown n serve, and mashed potatoes bland. Service was very good, but the rooms are very loud.... More
