Unbelievable food, very nice people and cozy dining areas

We went here to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. Everything was perfect- the table, the service, and most of all, the food. We had a couple drinks at the bar before dinner and were talking with a local who said the third floor was the best floor and we were lucky enough to be seated up there.... More

Had a filet and ceasar salad at the bar. It was good. Rather overpriced. Staff is pretty friendly. I go here fairly often for their happy hour. They could definitely be more welcoming. Never quite sure why they are considered one of Charlestons premier steakhouses. They have good food but not memorable food.

A friend and I were visiting Charleston and while walking the old town we came across the Oak Steakhouse. I do not eat steak but i did have there fish and it was really really good. They ordered the steak and said it was well prepared and tasted great; it had a large side of fries! The server was very... More

We ordered the bespoke "aged" beef and it was the most tender beef I've had in the U.S. Highly recommended, accompanied by truffle fries (also delish).

We loved this place so much -- the food and the service -- that we're headed back there in November to celebrate our anniversary. Of course, we've already made our reservations at Oak. The steaks were delicious, my son devoured the lobster tail, and my husband especially loved the scallop oscar over his filet. We topped all that off with... More

I don't eat steaks often but I knew going to a renowned steak restaurant, I had to have one. It was cooked to perfection. The shared sides were delicious, as well. The bread pudding was lacking a little, to me but that just means I'll have to try a different dessert the next time ;) My boyfriends favorite place in... More

Very good steakhouse. The waitstaff was very attentive. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were very flavorful. It was our anniversary and they comp'd us desert. Would definitely recommend to others.

The Caesar Salad is the best I've ever had. Filet with crab cake is very good. This time we sat on the second floor and found it to be incredibly loud. If you have hearing problems, I'd recommend asking for a 1st or 3rd floor table.
