Oak Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
My boyfriend and I went to Oak for his b ...
My boyfriend and I went to Oak for his birthday. They gave us a great seat overlooking the balcony so we got to people watch a little bit. My ONLY complaint about Oak this time around was that it was fairly noisy on the second floor where we were sat. Every other time I've eaten at Oak it's been on the 3rd floor so maybe this was the reason. When we first sat down there was a family with a little girl beside us in a booster seat. She was very well behaved but it took away from our special occasion/romantic evening. Not really oaks fault but somewhat frustrating.
DISREGARDIG those small issues..Oak continues to be my absolutely favorite restaurant in Charleston. If you haven't been here you're missing out. Lobster, steak, everything. Halls chophouse doesn't even come close to how amazing Oak is. I love you Oak!!!

We were referred to Oak steakhouse away from another place for a more intimate place to dine. We eat early so the noise level was low and the restaurant was not crowded. The food was very good and as far as the value goes, we are from Washington DC. A nice place costs us this regularly, so no sticker shock here. The steaks were cooked as ordered and the sides, brussel sprouts and frites, were very good. Highly recommended.

Very quiet place to eat. We were sat on the third floor, and the room itself was fantastic. The atmosphere was phenomenal, and out waiter was there for any needs. The steaks were cooked to exactly how we wanted them, and the sides were perfect. We had the asparagus, and another side of mushrooms. For dessert my date had a limoncello, while I decided I had room for the key lime pie.
Overall a perfect dining experience for a special occasion as it isn't cheap. You do get what you pay for though, and I actually had no issue with the price with how perfect everything was. The valet parking out front made it perfect for downtown as well, so I didn't have to look for a place to park.

It's supposed to be a steak place and the steaks were good, but everything else was remarkable! We plan to go back and do more appetizers and try the seafood! The scallop salad was out of this world and the heirloom tomato salad was so refreshing & tasty! We have told all of our friends they have to try it! We were so full but I really wanted to try to S'mores cheesecake. The waiter GAVE me a piece to go! I didn't get around to eating it for a couple of days but it was delicious! I want another one! The service was very good but it does move a little slow as we were on the third floor so and the bar and kitchen are downstairs so the waiter had to run up and down the stairs for everything! He stays in shape and really earns his tips. Those stair steps are big! If you have any limitations in climbing you should make that clear on your reservation because it is a hike up to the 3rd floor!

As soon as we arrived we were corralled to a bar table rather than to the dining room. Soon after receiving our menus our waiter informed us the kitchen wanted to close so he'd like us to hurry up and decide what we wanted. Also we asked for more bread and were told they were out but would put more in the oven. When it finally came out the bread was cold to room temperature. Overall we felt rushed. If you don't want to give people spending hundreds of dollars full service at a particular hour, then don't accept reservations at that time -- let alone entice them with bonus points.

We came in from Savannah, Ga. and was looking for a nice restaurant that we could only find in Charleston and Oak Steakhouse was just that. I had the tenderloin and frites and it was the best steak I have had so far. It was very tender and the truffle frites were amazing as well. They have a great wine selection and the staff really know their stuff when it comes to pairing a wine and steak.
I would love to go back again!!

We had reservations and looked forward to this special dining experience for several weeks. Without being notified or consulted ahead of time, we were seated at a table in the bar area on the 1st floor. Very shortly after being seated, bar patrons began to arrive, including a bachelorette party and the noise level/activity was outrageous. Our server could hardly get to our table to serve us. When paying these prices for food, no one should be seated in the bar area without some sort of discount or other accomodations made. What should have been a romantic evening in a beautiful restaurant with delicious food and great service, turned into a big bill and a headache. I wish I had asked to speak to the manager but I didn't so that is on me.

Great service and good food but it is PRICY! Our bill for the two of us was $265. My husband had the ribeye special which ended up being $89 and we had a special crab app and that was $35. For a special occasion it is worth a visit!

This was our second visit to the restaurant. And I will have say I was disappointed. The "special" steak we ordered was not so special. The flavor was great but it would have been nice to know the price when it was presented to us. The cut of meat was terrible. The meat was so tough that I couldn't eat it. I had to send it to the kitchen to be cut for me!! The waiter claimed it was not a poor cut of meat but that he gave me an old and dull knife. I would liked to have known the "special" steak that I couldn't cut was $90! You could see the veins that ran all through it making it impossible to cut no matter which way I sliced the meat. I have eaten steaks all over the country but never had to have the chef cut it so I could eat it!

Excellent staff & service was professional. The meal was deliciousnd we hope the this review is helpful in bringing the restaurant back to its full potential. Restaurant appeared to be in need of some general maintenance & cleaning. Ceilings were stained with water spots, chandelier broken & missing pieces, window sills were dusty & dirty, walls covered with dirty finger prints, carpet on stairs appeared worn & dirty. Bathroom doors and stalls were covered in dust. Drapes were dusty & had food spots, Menus were stained from water & food and floors appeared greasy.

Outstanding steaks and sides. Salads were very good, not great. Bread was good. Wine was excellent, as was the dessert.
Service was very, very good.
The restaurant is in downtown Charleston, in a very old building that is quaint, but not for everyone, as stairs are involved.

The steak was one of the best we ever had. Cooked perfectly with ample seasoning. The shrimp cocktail was also excellent. My dining partner raved about the Brussels sprouts and Mac and cheese. The mashed potatoes were excellent. Service was phenomenal - worth every cent!! Thank you so much for a wonderful dinner.

Oak Steakhouse is the place to go. Yes, Charleston is known for their seafood, but this steakhouse is a delicious option if you're in the mood for a top notch steak. Try the brussel sprouts and lobster mac and cheese to compliment your steak. The key lime pie is delightful as well.

The table I requested was honored (upstairs by a window).
Our waiter was truly excellent.
My filet was divine.
My husband's Caesar salad was superb. Oak was very generous with the white anchovies.
The oysters Rockefeller were delicious.
Not so good -
My husband ordered the "special" steak - a bone in ribeye. He has had it before, but this time he said it wasn't as good as usual.

We went to Oak Steakhouse for steak and vegetables and we were not disappointed! The filet mignon was superb. With it we had roasted mushrooms (divine) and roasted brussel sprouts (delicious). A very satisfying dinner!

Oak has been a mainstay in our list of favorite restaurants in Charleston. Whenever we make the trip down, we always stop by for steak and the lobster mac and cheese. After having our rehearsal dinner there in 2011, it seemed only fitting that we celebrate our 5th anniversary there as well. Consistently delicious with impeccable service!

We visited for our 16th wedding anniversary. Our server was knowledgable, able to recommend wines based on our tastes and the wines were excellent. He answered any menu questions we had as well. The food was delicious, especially our S'mores cheesecake!
