Lives up to the expectations of fine dining – Oakwood club offers amazing steak and other familiar steak house/american favorites. However, the menu does not just stick to the typical cuisine and includes some unique seafood dishes. Service is top notch and the servers have always been very responsive to the needs of the table. The atmosphere is dark and intimate and is not set up for children but ...that is fine. This is a grown-up place. So, leave the kids at home and enjoy a wonderful dinner out at The Oakwood Club.
Unbelieveably bad treatment – My wife and I went to the Oakwood Club 1/7/06. There was a 2 hourwat - we were happy to sit at the bar. Two ladies arrived 20 minutes after we did and sat at the bar. After 90 minutes, the ladies ( regulars / friends of the owner) were seated - we weren't. I paid my tab, expressed my dissatisfaction to the bartender and left. The bartender apologized but no effort was made to correct the situation. I had heard stories of mistreatment of "non-regulars" but we had never experienced the problem - possibly because we had been with regulars on other occaisions.
If a restaurant is not going to take reservations they should make every effort to ensure customers are taken in order. I will tell everyone I know how I was treated. Their reputation for treating non-regulars in a shoddy manner is well deserved.
Not unless you are from Oakwood – This establishment is typical of a place that forgot what made them good. They survive off their following, which is very good. Unfortunately their following and service are the only mentionables. The wait on the weekends is terrible. The cost of the food would be about right if it was as good as everyone says. The only items on the menu that rank are the prime rib and a few select appetizers. Dayton has a hard time keeping good restaurants and has lost better ones than this.
Not As Overpriced As You Think - Well Worth IT! – We've been hearing about how overpriced and snooty the Oakwood Club is since we moved from Nebraska in October. I guess we should have evaluated the class of the sources before letting months go by before we tried it ourselves. The decor is rich and inviting, while maintaining a secluded feeling for diners. The food was perfection, as well as the service. My husband and I now visit frequently during the week for a nice, quick supper under $40. The bar is exquisitite and has the best selection of liquor in Dayton.
Oakwood Club has it all – Ask for server Heather. Great food top-notch service. Reasonably priced. Dayton Native here and this is my Favorite Restuarant here.
