I love this place. Since I was so I ate at the bar. The food was superb as usual. The foie gras was scrumptious and the 5 oz filet strip was cooked to perfection. I have met the most interesting people here. If you want...More

The steak was excellent as was the creamed spinach, the carrot cake was very good. The service was outstanding and loved the furnishings.

One of our favorite restaurants in Charleston. The steak was done to perfection. They allow you to order half portions of the sides as well as the salads, really nice option for 2 people. The cornbread is a must! So so good.

Convenient to the historic Dock Street theater, five of us stopped at 530pm for some pre-theater drinks and heavy snacks. The Oak has happy hour times running Sunday through Friday 5-7pm in a very small bar area. There are about ten bar stools and perhaps...More

When visiting the Charleston area we usually end up at Oak Steakhouse for some of the best Oysters Rockefeller I’ve ever had. They are perfectly cooked and come out quickly from the kitchen. Enjoying these with a Hendrix or Hat Trick Martini is a wonderful...More

Went there on the recommendation of the front desk. It was magnificent. Perhaps a tad pricey, but well worth. Food was prepared to perfection. Service was incredible - Robert or waiter was very attentive and served with great care, and the Manger Andrea was a...More

I would l recommend business casual. One could wear jeans, but perhaps matched with a collared shirt and sports coat. It is a bit more upscale. Having said that, this area is pretty casual compared to most cities.
