Charleston is a beautifl city that is welcoming to the many tourist it host. Jestines is not to be missed for lunch, a carriage ride with Myron is a marvelous history of the south and a great first on your list so you get to know the city and can appreciate everytihng you are seeing while just walking down the beautiful (very clean) streets. However, with all of the great dinner restaurants, skip the Oak Steak House. Although when you enter the large crowd makes you think you choosen the right place--it is for locals only. We were 10 minutes late for our reservation as we took a wrong turn, the hostess indicaed we would now need to wai 15 minutes---over ONE hour later we were seated. LOUD, drunk party of young people who though they had thier own private dinning room (pictures, VERY loud, standing up all around our table) meant we could not even have conversation. Wine order taken our waiter returns 14 minutes later to tell us they just sold the last bottle and empty handed of bread. After 25 minutes of being seated we received our wind and bread.
Arrived at 7:40 and left at 10:35---never checked to see how our food was, did aopolgize for the loud group but said their was nothing they could do, offered comp dessert, forgot until we were actually paying, had to turn away my dessert as it did not arrive until my husband had finished his.
Service and seating seemed to be based solely on locals or your VIP status as it stated in thier hostess stand computer. Make another choice.
