The temple of red meat... vegetarians stay away!!! The bone-in 36 oz ribeye is sublime...if you're feeling weaker get the filet oscar style with bernaise and lobster meat on top...truly decadent!

This place is excellent! My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary there last evening. It was undoubtedly the best steak we have EVER eaten. The filet melted in our mouths. The service was impeccable! Great ambiance. It was a special way to spend our anniversary.

My family and I just returned from the Charleston, SC and did have dinner at the “highly” reviewed Oak Steakhouse. First and foremost, the highlight of the meal had to be chief Brett McKee and his ability to channel all of his “self-absorbed” talents into photo shoots, his BMW getting the front row parking spot, the loud cowboy boots (that on a side note - resembled my wife’s), and of course his insecurity complex. My wife and I both ordered the 7oz fillet’s that when served seemed to be no more than 4 oz. The lobster tail that I added (for a mere $18) had been served spongy and also shy of the ordered 4 oz. On the positive side, my wife’s crab cake was perfect as ordered and consumed. Our family meal totaled $198.00 including only “ONE” glass of wine and three sodas’ or pops…soft drinks. This meal was not worth half of that total. Additionally, the water servers were great. They kept my family’s glasses full and continually asked, “if we needed anything?”
Finally, I am glad to have witnessed this chief and his team in action…more so the arrival of Mr. McKee…that was the most memorable event from the family trip to Charleston. And one side note – if you do disregard this review and question that one man could be so self-absorbed; take a quick trip up the stairway and check-out the 12 or so paintings of…HIMSELF (too funny). For now I will take this review and the results of our Oak Steakhouse experience and share it with my working network and golfing network. Recommendation: The Palm, Hyde Park, Daisy Mae’s, Morton’s, Ruth’s Chris are all much much more deserving of your dollar than the Oak Steakhouse.
