Great Choice!

Parking is an issue for me in Charleston, but Oak has valet parking - score! My husband likes to grab a beer with Oyster Rockefeller while I have a cocktail with the chopped salad (the best in Charleston). We love our steaks Pittsburghed and Oak does not disappoint.

Parking is an issue for me in Charleston, but Oak has valet parking - score! My husband likes to grab a beer with Oyster Rockefeller while I have a cocktail with the chopped salad (the best in Charleston). We love our steaks Pittsburghed and Oak does not disappoint. The house steak sauce is amazing. Great service and friendly atmosphere.

It seems to be, that having wedding parties on the third floor is now a priority of the Oak Steak House, leaving regular diners like us somewhat ignored. For the second time in a row we were booted from our regular table on the third floor to a second floor table. There was a constant parade of wedding party attendants... More

I was impressed with the food for not a lot of pomp and circumstance. Good selection and reasonably priced! We had the food week experience. Their ribeye was perfect! The service was a little lacking but overall a wonderful experience. Sat on the third floor and loved the period atmosphere. Excellent lobster mac n cheese and their flourless cake was... More

Never disappoints! They know how to do it here! I have eaten at Oak several times when visiting Chucktown. It seemed like the obvious choice for my boyfriends birthday AND our anniversary celebration. When booking a reservation they asked if we were celebrating anything and they even called that day to confirm our time. We walked from The Mills House... More

My wife and I took advantage of Charleston Restaurant Week to visit Oak Steakhouse. One of downtown Charleston's finest restaurants has been on our "must go to" dining experiences. Parking can be tricky depending upon your arrival with street parking the most convenient. A valet service is offered for a reasonable fee relieving you from circling the block hoping to... More

Great service. Sit very close to others. My partner said her steak was excellent. The vegan meal offered and described was nothing like the uninspired meal I received.

I visited oak on a business trip and the filet was by far the best I have ever eaten. Great atmosphere. Terrific food. I will definitely go back when I'm in Charleston again.

We have enjoyed Oak Steakhouse many times in the past and this visit was no exception! As we have said before the food is exceptional and the staff is a delight. The steaks are wonderful and cooked to your order. Again the Oysters Rockefeller did not disappoint. Looking forward to another visit next December.
