Overall it was good. Nothing outstanding about the dining experience.
Pleasant surprise. The only negative was one of the bartenders wore a shirt that didn't leave much to the imagination. It was not a good look.

It was nice! Went for Valentine’s Day! Food was very good, & the service was great! Made reservation online, & it said only high top table was available, but when we arrived, we were asked if we would like a booth! Very pleased with everything!
Family Valentine’s Day lunch
Food was delicious
Nice place for date night. Large drink/beer selection. Looks like they have a nice patio when the weather gets nice.
My family took me here for my birthday celebration and the food was very good! Only thing I would mention about their food is that the salads are HUGE and they come with the dressing already on them, which some people may prefer but makes it very difficult to take leftovers home and eat later when they do that. The ambiance was great although we needed to use flashlights to read the menus because it was so dark in the restaurant. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. I was kind of surprised that nothing was mentioned about my birthday since I included it when I made the OpenTable reservation- I can't help but wonder if they used to do more for birthdays but stopped due to COVID. Strangely enough, the tables were packed pretty close together in comparison with other restaurants during COVID times. I felt safe, but I could see where some people may prefer to go somewhere else where there would be more breathing room.
Our bartender/ server was fantastic. She was very attentive even though she was very busy. Chicken was a little dry, but the smoked old fashioned was amazing! And the Oreo cookie cheesecake was to die for.
Awesome food, great service, great location. Recommend
Our server was very good- food just took a long time to come out. Drinks also very pricy but good. We will definitely go back though.
We love eating at the Oak Stave; great service and great food!
OUR BARTENDERS BRANDI & LEXI WERE AWESOME! FOOD WAS EXCELLENT
Too crowded for current situation
Great. Top notch nachos. We go there regularly and we’ve not had a bad meal. Drinks are really good too.
Second time there, and definitely going again.
Great time, good foid
I liked the style of the restaurant and they had a good variety on the menu. Unfortunately the food wasn’t great and one meal came out without the requested adjustments (no pickle no onions). Fish tacos were meh. Drinks were good. Granted they just opened up again so I’d go back and give it another try maybe in a few months.
Good food and drinks, lots of good choices on the menu. Will be back.
Very pleased with quality of food and the way it was prepared and presented.
Service was also good
First of all, glad they take reservations! Food and service was great! Will def go back!’
Very nice place. And will definitely be back! Food snd service was awesome! Can’t wait to see you all again!
Such a great meal!! The portions were huge and the nachos were delicious. We will definitely be back!
Food and coctails were delicious. Will definately be returning again.
Great food and service , felt great to be out in a busy restaurant
The food was outstanding the drinks were good. The hostess was very polite. We giteverything we needed.
Had the Fish and Chips, was delicious and also the French Onion Soup was good as well
Awesome ambiance and perfect options on the menu. It was like an upgraded sports bar. Fun booths, tv’s, and great cocktail selection!
Fast and friendly service. Food portions are large and a great for the price. Drinks were a little on the pricey side but food portions made up for it. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend!
The food is way better than most restaurants on Transit!
Food and service was great. I liked that their entire patio was covered and enclosed. It appears that they followed the COVID-19 protocols. I will return to the restaurant again.
Probably the best meal I’ve had there in a long time!
Nice & relaxing. Great food for the price. Good service
They were a little busy so our reservation got delayed but they were super apologetic about it. They treated us to our first round of drinks. Food was delicious, our server was attentive and did a great job.
Nachos are great. Their salads are always good. Only disappointment was the mash potatoes.
Very nice menu. Large selection of burgers, but many other items as well. We shared the crispy Brussel sprouts as an appetizer. Very large portion which was great for sharing and they were delicious! Loved the beet salad. The salmon was also excellent. Good beer on tap. Overall a great dining experience!
I made a reservation on open table for 8 people. When we arrived, the hostess asked if she could split our party up into 2 separate tables. I said no because we made a reservation(clearly there wasn’t a table reserved for us), so after about 10 mins they moved things around and got us a table. Once we sat, service took long. I ordered fish tacos and sweet potato fries that were tasty but 4 other people in my party ordered burgers that came on ciabatta bread and were IMPOSSIBLE to bite into. Overall would not recommend.
Great menu selections - staff very friendly! Food was very good but seemed a little short staffed but that could be due to it being a Friday night and it was very busy and their takeout orders seemed to keeping them on their feet also. Overall, would definitely return - great ambience and good food!
Food & drinks were great. They always have a ton of great menu options.
Onion soup was one of the best. The taco appetizer was enjoyed by the rest of the table. We all ordered hand held, all four of us, and we all agreed the ciabiatta roll was too much, dry and a dry chewy which detracted from the sandwich itself which had really tasty filling, meats, cheeses, eggs, etc.
The bourbon menu is extensive, maybe too many without write-ups I felt a little risky with the pricing but I had two and the Woodford Reserve double soaked, and the Black Button Double Barrel were nice selections, will be picking up bottles of each for the home collection.
An excellent place to have a beverage. Starters were good. We all do not recommend the handheld burgers because of the rolls.
