Oak Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

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!

Torn between which one to try Halls or Oak. Was so looking forward to a Great steak- steak was fine-nothing memorable- mushrooms were too salty for me to eat. Salad was very good. Wish we had picked the other.

This was our first visit. It was our anniversary and we were delighted that on Sunday's, the wine is 50% off for bottles under $80. The Pinot Noir was wonderful as were our filets....cooked perfectly. Our server was polite, knowledgeable and attentive. Wonderful experience.

Father's Day celebration. We were quite pleased with our service and dinner. I had the fish of the day and my husband had the steak. Both dishes were great (his steak was awesome). We will definitely return for steaks in the future. Top steak downtown in our opinion.

Dinner started off a little rocky. We were greeted and had water poured immediately, but after that, it took a few minutes before our server got over to take our drink order. I understand they were teaming the section and we looked like a young couple in a crowd of business men so we might have been put on the back burner. We both used to work at a high end steakhouse so we weren't too upset as we have most likely done the same. Other than that our dining experience was outstanding. Food came out quickly, steak was cooked perfectly and our server seemed to loosen up a bit as dinner went on, which we loved. Obviously the steaks were delicious, the brussels sprouts and oysters rockefeller were amazing as well, but the sticky toffee pudding was the perfect way to end our meal . Thanks for an awesome night.

Perfect experience! We got a special our waiter Oliver told us about: $150 for oysters rockefeller, 2 specialty salads, a 32 oz. succulent porterhouse steak, and lobster mac n cheese. He threw a chocolate cheesecake to go because we were absolutely stuffed! Best steak I've ever had on top of Halls and Ruth's Chris. Definitely coming back and recommending to everyone!

Wonderful experience. Can't wait to go again! My husband's strip steak was cooked perfectly. I ordered the very affordable 5 oz. filet with pomme frites. Beef was delicious and tender. And the fancy French fries were great!
great food outstanding service
The steak I had was perfectly prepared. My husband had a chicken dish that was equally good. The waiter gave great service. The table where we sat was above the first floor at a balcony so it was noisy.

Great feel to the place, wonderful service. I loved my steak, but I think Charleston has more exciting and unique options for sure. But oak steakhouse is very good at what they do.
it took much too long to get our meal. We sat at 8:30 and didn't eat until after 10:00. There were a few large parties, I understand waiting but we waited too long

Nice ambience and great steaks. The salads were marginal, The server was out to lunch, the overall experience was very slow. The $80 bottle of wine was marginal. Many other great places in Charleston. Would not go back.
One of Charleston's Best
We've lived in downtown Charleston for over five years and consider Oak Steakhouse to be consistently one of the best restaurants in town. They like the locals as much as tourists (not a common thing in Charleston), but treat everyone well. Food is always excellent (the ONLY good Oysters Rockefeller in town) and consistently prepared on the mark. Seafood is prepared as well as meat. Service is always efficient, but friendly and gracious. All around, it is a 10! A very classy dining experience, without being stuffy.
Great overall but...
Loved the restaurant, the food was amazing, the waitstaff courteous but had to wait for forty minutes past our reservation time to be seated and had walk-ins seated before us. Plan on a wait even in you have reservations.
From the moment we entered the restaurant we were greeted, and treated very well. We started with a drink at the bar, the bartender was great. Then we were seated for dinner. The servers were knowledgeable and attentive. The food was some of the best we had our whole trip to Charleston. I would highly recommend a visit to this Establishment when visiting Charleston. Bonus valet parking, so no need for a cab or the hassle of finding a place to park downtown.
Wonderful Saturday meal
Everything was superb, the mixed grill entree was fantastic and enough for 2. Key lime desser was excellent, having just come from Key West last week, this was every bit as good ,mpossibly better.
An excellent experience!
We were visiting Charleston from Chicago for the holiday weekend and stumbled upon this gem. The service was superb and the food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.
One of the best steaks I've ever had
My husband and I visited Oak Steakhouse recently and were so pleasantly surprised with high quality of each dish we ordered. The oysters rockafeller were amazing, and the steaks were perfection. Slightly crisp on the outside and so tender inside, both my filet and my husband's dry run strip were some of the best cooked steaks we have ever had, easily competing with and surpassing the other big steakhouses in Charleston. Although pricey, as most steak places of this caliber are, the food was worth it. Our server Gregory was friendly with great timing. Highly recommended!

I have eaten at Oak in the past and I thought it was quite good. However, I cannot say that my experience was fit for foodies. My hubby and I were celebrating our 43rd anniversary and thought it would be great to eat at Oak. I was not impressed. I ordered a strip steak which I have eaten for the last 50 years and know quite well what a strip steak looks and tastes like. When I received my dinner, the first thing I said to my hubby was I 've never seen a strip steak that looked like this. Upon cutting and tasting the steak I once again said the same thing to my hubby about the taste. I decided to speak to the waiter and all he said was yes it was a strip steak. Never once did he offer to do anything about it. Instead of causing any problems I just took it home. The waiter did make a face when I asked him to wrap it. For the money that was spent I was totally disappointed in my meal. Having that kind of experience I'm not sure I will ever go back there and as far as recommendations I don't think I would .

My husband I went to the Oak Steakhouse for our 20th wedding anniversary dinner. The service, atmosphere and food were perfect. The staff brought us special desserts in celebration of our anniversary, such a kind and uncommon gesture that we greatly appreciated. The food is plentiful and cooked to perfection. We could not have had a better meal. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, tender and juicy. We will definitely enjoy dining at this establishment in the future. The waiter was attentive and quick to serve in every way. The Oak Steakhouse has spoiled us from eating at other "restaurants" serving steaks!
Enjoyed the food, service and special attention given

Oak is my wife's favorite. We go there every year for her Birthday & it never disappoints. The food & service are both always fantastic!
Dinner at Oak Steakhouse
Was in town on a business trip and found this restaurant link on the web from a restaurant search. Food was really good, but a bit pricey. I should have looked at the prices before recommending considering I work for a non-profit organization. Service was top-notch and would definitely recommend for anyone not concerned with price.
