We stopped for lunch and walking through the door was like stepping back in time. The decor was really cute and very vintage. That is were it stopped. The food, albeit comfort food, was really innovative and delicious. A great experience.

Really wanted to like this place, as it offers a unique atmosphere, a "grandma's kitchen" sort of experience. Small, intimate dining room, kraft paper table coverings, mason jar glasses, etc. add to the ambiance, but the food was not as enjoyable. Truffle fries were very...More

I thought I would re-review the restaurant because my trip before last (I said I wouldn't go back) wasn't a very good experience. I had the fried chicken and my wife had the shrimp and grits. Both were outstanding. The service was very good too....More

Cool ambience -- rustic and ecclectic -- good food ... they do not have a full bar (wine and beer only) ... shrimp and grits were great ... friend green tomatoes were good ... fried oysters were tasty ... salmon was good

It doesn't look like much from the street, but this small restaurant has some of the finest southern food that the south has to offer! With cute decor and great service, you will be very impressed with the food. Great spot for lunch or dinner.

We must have hit the place on a bad day. Waiter never smiled once, didnt greet us, but asked immediately without saying hello in a very clip voice, what we wanted to drink. Maybe he was rushed because it was so hot inside the restaurant...More

Angel Oak is located on Route 17, near John's Island. Definitely not a fine dining venue. The building is somewhat rustic looking from the outside. That said, the food we had was very good. Two had Fried Green Tomato BLT with a side salad. They...More

Came here with some friends and really enjoyed ourselves. Learned that this wasn't one tree but several that grew together over the last 400 years. Neat experience for the kids.

This unassuming small restaurant, on a dusty car park by the side of the road, is very popular, and we would not have waited that long for a table for our brunch if the place had not been recommended by a local friend. Next time...More

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.
