I found this place via Trip Advisor and visited a couple of times for dinner. Nice staff who we extremely friendly, they serve an exquisite spaghetti bolognese made with pancetta, also beautiful chicken with grits, had the same thing both nights. Highly recommended, simple, traditional food with no frills but extremely satisfying.

Took my husband's parents to The Oak Steakhouse for their 50th wedding anniversary. Superior service, waiter was very knowledgeable about the entire menu and very helpful with our food and drink choices. Everyone is very attentive. Our steaks were 5 stars and the sides were very fresh and tasty. We have been here once before and will certainly come back... More

A special occasion and a group of 5, with everyone leaving very happy. We had everything from filet, fish and a vegetarian plate and all were wonderful.

Dinner on a Saturday evening was very good. The wait staff acted as you were the only table in the building. The building is a converted bank. The vault is still visible. Steak and side dishes cooked just as ordered. I would highly recommend while in Charlesto

We come to Charleston to relax and eat! This place provided both! They showered us with amazing appetizers while we waited and then delivered a fantastic meal! Will definitely be back in our next trip

This place has great ambiance and the steak is good. I have had many steaks, and I would rate their steak as good. the sides are family-style and tasty. Prices are high, but on par for what you would expect in that area. I would recommend this place for a romantic date night. Make reservations and wear a sweater! It... More

Every time we are in Charlestown, we come here for dinner. The best foie gras ever. Steaks, side dishes are all amazing. The wine list is superb. Love the desserts. Perfect dinner

My group booked reservations for 3 people for dinner at 2045. We arrived early at 2015 to perhaps have a drink prior to dinner. The place was jammed. Checking in with the hostess she advised we would seat at 2045. So we managed to get a drink with a very nice hardworking bar attendant. It was noisy and very small... More
