If you like seeing bosomes bar tenders this is the place for the older gentlemen. Steaks are great and fish is less than to be desired for non meat eaters.

“not worth the money”
Reviewed January 28, 2008

After eating Charleston's delicious seafood for a couple of days, my husband and I wanted a change and decided that we would love a good steak. We walked until we found the Oak Steakhouse and were pleased to be able to be seated without reservations. A first glance around told us that we were in an upscale location, but nothing stood out as being more than your average City Range type of place. When we were seated, we ordered water as neither of us drink alcohol or sodas. That was apparently a mistake. From that point on, our waitress seemed disinterested in us since I supposed she assumed we would not be leaving the type of tip she desired. The cheapest steak on the menu was the 7oz. fillet for $30. We were told that the sides (a separate charge of course) were "family style" and would serve two to three people. We ordered a side of fries for $8. When our food came, we both stared in disappointment at the small lump of meat in the center of the plate and the pile of shoe string fries that equaled about the size of a large McDonald's fry. While the food was good, it was not deserving of the price tag. We have eaten much better for a much cheaper price. Perhaps the most disappointing thing was the snooty way that we were treated. It was very obvious that we were not preferred customers since we were not guzzling high priced bottles of wine and multiple courses. We tipped our waitress well, though I'm not sure our level of service was worth more than the standard. After leaving, went to find my husband something else to eat since he was still very hungry :-) If you are looking for a place to impress your date with your wallet, this is a good choice. If you just want a great meal, Charleston has so many other fantastic restaurants!
