We had a great Sunday brunch at Angel Oak! My daughter stayed with us in Edisto so we followed her to Angel Oak for brunch and then sent her off on her return trip to Raleigh. She is definitely a foodie and she loved her meal and the ambience. We picked the right spot!
After dining at Angel Oak once before and having had a good experience, we arrived there last Saturday for dinner about 7pm. Our drink order was taken and arrived and we asked for bread. After waiting more than 15 minutes, we were told that they'd run out and were making more. We watched as the bread was brought out but had to advise our server of this fact. We explained my need for low sodium food to our server and asked which items on the menu could be adjusted to fit my needs. Bacon seemed to be used in several dishes and we told the server that wasn't something I could eat. We ordered fried green tomatoes and were asked for our entrée orders, too. We waited while I watched an order of fried green tomatoes being brought out to guests who'd arrived and ordered after us. When ours was brought out, it included bacon and we mentioned that to the server. He didn't say anything. Our entree's came on the heels of our appetizer. Again, no apology was offered. We will not be back.
Very good food, but small menu. If you cannot take any spice it limits even further. Wish the weather was nicer so we could have eaten outside. Service was good.
Unexpected gem in a bit of an out-of-the-way spot. Great food, smiling and gracious service in a very quaint and appealing setting. My Wife's shrimp and grits were the best she has ever had, and she has had it at dozens of places around the South.
I've been to Angel Oak 4 or 5 times before and the food and service has always been great. This time our waitress was MIA - kept apologizing because it was restaurant week and they were really busy. Don't make excuses when their are open tables. We didn't order appetizers because the home-made biscuits looked so good on everyone else's table. Bread -no biscuits -were delivered as our entrees arrived - 20 minutes after we sat down. Asked for biscuits. Told they ran out - at 6:45 - "because it was restaurant week and they were busy". Hoping next time I go back - and I will - there will be no excuses and biscuits.
the food was great, the service was great, what more can you ask for. It was not our first time dining there and it will not be our last.
And in Charleston, that's saying a lot!
Our party of three had the "Restaurant Week" special. (Been really disappointed with these in other places in the past-but we tried it here.)
Angel Oak is small, intimate, cozy, low-key and lovely. And reasonably priced.
Owner Nicole greets everyone personally; she is welcoming and takes time to personalize the greeting. Our server, Patrick, was a doll!
The Low-Country food is out of this world, simple yet delicious, well-presented AND plentiful!
We loved the fried-green tomatoes, beet salad, tilapia, fried shrimp, chicken & dumplings and banana pudding. And the Beignets for dessert were magical!
We opted for the $15 pp wine pairing, which included 2 glasses of wine and 1 of champagne with dessert.
Can't wait to return!
Notable surprise in West Ashley. Cute, small building. Warm, attentive greeting from host/owner. Friendly service. But the five stars comes from the food. Everything was excellent! We shared kale Waldorf salad which was filled with apples, walnuts, and raisins. Then I had the swordfish special. Perfectly cooked, flavorful and moist. Topped with bernaise sauce and served over hoppin john. My daughter had the salmon topped with dill sauce. Also perfectly cooked. We finished with beignets. I've had beignets many times in New Orleans but none as light and tasty as these. The side of chocolate sauce only made it better! Make the effort to find this place!
I dream of this restaurant! I love the design and homey feeling. The food is scratch and is so unbelievable. Do not miss the Beignets!!!
I have been going to this restaraunt since it opened 3 years ago. The food has been consistently excellent and is one of my favorite places to go. It is in an especially 'underserved' area and really meets a need of good food in the area. Menu changes seasonally and I have looked forward to all of them. Tuesday and Wednesdays are an especially appealing deal- entries for 2 and half-off good wine prices!!
