Angel Oak Restaurant is what the locals seek out in America's #1 tourist trap. This Chef should have "stars" from somebody more important than me! An unassuming easy to miss restaurant, which is an absolute must find here. They support local suppliers/farmers so their menu...More

As we entered we were seated immediately. There is seating outside also. Amanda was our server, and she was excellent. The manager stopped by to chat. Place felt very cozy. The food is superb. The place was busy but not at all noisy.

Not sure if they would do that but you could probably call them and ask them to.

The tree is not at the restaurant --- there are many things in the area named "Angel Oak" --- but I can tell you there is no fee to see the tree!

No Microwaves. No Freezers. Angel Oak works very close with local farmers and distributors. Angel Oak has a casual full lunch menu with romantic southern shabby chic atmosphere at night. Serving brunch on Sundays. The food is affordable and innovative. Angel Oak takes pride in the influences of southern low country cooking while keeping a fun approach.
