“Now serving lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

This location had not been open for lunch until last month. They were only open for dinner and Sunday brunch. This is our second lunch experience. The lunch menu is rather limited but uniquely varied. The dinner menu is also still available. We have varied our selections and find every choice to be excellent. It is best know for its steaks but the sea food is incredibly superb. The Sea Bass is an award winner Today, I went for the standard hamburger. It was accompanied with a bone marrow mayo that elevated the dish. It came with truffle french fries(I suggest you order these well). The portions are perfect with a number of extremely tasty sides. The soups are great and the selection of salads should satisfy. The decor is upscale, comfortable and the outside dining is perfect. In general the service is par excellent! It is just to bad that our 'bus boy' out shined our waiter in communication and attention to dining detail. Well done Clive!
It is on the expensive side, but the quality of the food and it's preparation is well worth it. The manage,r J K visits all tables and engages the diner.
Urge you to visit, you will enjoy the experience. Dinner is a special experience.

“Tried it twice...”

…and it was expensive, good food and great service. We would go back for a special occasion, however.

“Underwhelming”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We went to Council Oak at the end of September, as there's no way to avoid the restaurants in the casino when attending a concert.

They allow smoking on the veranda, which we didn't know, so we had to endure the second-hand smoke from other tables. The service is excellent and the food is fair.

My major complaint is the amount you receive and I am not a big eater. My husband ordered the grouper special: it consisted of a very small piece of fish with a medley of other types of seafood. For $42 you would expect at least a side dish, something inexpensive as potatoes or rice, but no. At least it was good. I had the tuna Tataki that normally fills me up. What I got for $25 was just four (4) tiny pieces and a couple of shreds of nondescript vegetables: something fit for a Persian cat but not really for human appetites. I ended up scraping the small bowl of tapenade that came with the bread so hard that I must have dented it.

The bill, with a couple of drinks, came to $98 before tip. We left underwhelmed and underfed: we ended up gorging on popcorn at the concert.
