Happy Birthday with Steak

I went to Oak Steakhouse for my birthday dinner on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We ordered the filet mignon and shared whipped potatoes and the corn bread.

I had the best wet-aged ribeye I had ever put in my mouth! Some other in my party had the Filet and we're not overly impressed. Some locals say Hall's Chophouse is superior and more affordable, as the Oak was rather pricey

Not just steak, also seafood being offered is as good as Charleston. Good cuisine and good service. We were with friends for my birthday last night, and it was worth every penny. Surprisingly well selected range of wine was available as well...

We had a big birthday to celebrate and so glad we chose this restaurant Started with Moscow Mules and fresh bread. Meals were filet mignon and grouper on a bed of risotto and topped with small salad. Our sides were mushrooms, bacon topped macaroni and cheese and Swiss chard. Everything was excellent, service was great by Jerrod and they presented... More

The atmosphere is amazing and the food is to die for. Don't even consider going to some chain steak house if you are going for a nice meal, go here! Our waiters and waitresses were so kind and the owner/manager that came by was extremely nice and Profesional.

We had really looked forward to this special classic steakhouse and the experience did not disappoint. From the carefully explained cuts and preparations of meats and menu to the delivery, the entire meal and service were excellent. The atmosphere in each room is different, and personally I would recommend the third floor front room, facing Broad Street with its beautifully... More

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
