Food was well prepared and very tasty. Portions are huge and definitely one could share. Nice menu selections. Something for everyone ie fish and meats. Comfortable seating. Lots of bigger tables so pretty noisy but we could hear each other across table without shouting.. Our waiter was Justin and he was terrific. Definitely will go back!

My wife and I joined another couple for dinner here on a quiet Sunday night. We were cordially treated and escorted to our seats in the main dining room. There might have been 6 other people in the dining room and we were happy w/our seats. We were just settling in after ordering drinks when a young family was escorted in and seated just one table away. One of the children was overly boisterous, whining, screaming and constantly looking for attention. REALLY!? I looked around and there were plenty of empty tables far from anyone, especially 2 post 45 y/o couples who, like most older couples, are looking for time away from whining kids. The food was very good, service a little haphazard...missing plates and forgotten straws...but we all tried to overlook the whining and wriggling youngster and did not mention anything to our waiter. So what would have been a very nice dinner was sadly ruined by whomever sat the young family. I hope this serves to remind restaurant management to be mindful of training their wait staff in more than memorizing the menu specials.

Although I was not here that night, as the GM, it was my responsibility, and for that I truly apologize. I have sent an email to you to further discuss.

One of my wife's and my go to restaurants in the area, we enjoyed an excellent dinner. I had the surf and turf special which was filet mignon and shrimp while my wife had ribs and both were outstanding. We will continue to include this restaurant as one of our favorites.

First time to this restaurant. Enjoyed the food very much. Had the chilled gazpacho and veal Milanese. The used highest quality veal. Missing was bread. They should have offered bread.

The room is dark and tables have good separation but still very noisy.

Will definitely return

Thank you for your review Davidlillian! Saturday was a busy evening and I apologize if the noise was too much. We've been adding sound proofing items as the years go on, but I guess we can always do with more! I apologize too about bread on the table. Both the bread and the water is only served by request only, as it is stated on the menu. Next time, be sure to ask your server! Look forward to seeing you back soon!

This restaurant is located in a hotel but it is not a hotel restaurant. Outside ownership is what makes this place great. Only downside is noise level but the food, service and atmosphere make up for that. Rare find outside of the city.

Been there many times and it’s always been good but my entree this time was tasteless. The shrimp were huge but over cooked and the sauce on the linguini was flavorless. I was disappointed as it was my birthday dinner.

I would like to state that the restaurant contacted me right away and I am extremely happy with them! We will definitely be going back!

Fire and Oak is a visually stunning eaterie with various types of seating and service. The sports bar is open and comfortable, and the dining areas range from rustic/comfortable to cross-cultural and aesthetic. The cuisine options are equally broad. Almost anyone should be able to find a palate-pleasing choice. All of our choices were fine, but the star of the evening was the gazpacho, an appetizer special. We loved the summer soup so much that we asked our server for the recipe. He and the chef obliged.
