The Oak Table can boast of not only complimentary location—the oaken wood themed restaurant sits across from the magnificent antebellum South Carolina capital building—but also creative (yet mercifully restrained) fare and careful service. One is not impressed with too much "ya'll come in" and so forth if the vital service is off. That is not the case here. The server was authentic and appropriate. The food—a bacon, greens and goat cheese on a buttered, toasted bun—was fresh, tasty and delivered by the chef from the kitchen. The fruit salad was not generous in serving size, but was very fresh and the local strawberrys were bursting with midlands Carolina flavor.
I hope my Sunday solo brunch will be followed by an encore with my wife.
