I have been to this restaurant several times maybe even a dozen.

The food is "home made" but I don't know whose home that was. I had a salad and when I complained about it the manager came out to the table and started to defend the salad saying it was a "home made" dressing. He should have come out to the table and apologized and asked what he could do for me...bring something else fro instance or don't charge me for the salad.

The wait staff is slow and I do remember having sat outside waiting for the waiter for quite a while and then waited for my food even longer.

We will never go back to this restaurant again.

I do not know where some of the other reviewers are coming from. We have been dining at Oakcrest since they opened. We have never had a sub-par meal or bad service even during times of mad rush.\r

Manager approached our table before our whole party arrived and informed us three times that we had to buy something - Could have used more tact or waited for the rest of our party to arrive before approaching.

Pros: Smoke-Free

Cons: Rude Manager, Average Food

I've tried the tavern a few times. The food is good, especially the Fish Fry. I would order take out but I will NEVER dine in again!
The service is slow and inattentive, and if you don't like something you better keep your mouth shut unless you want the owner to come over and talk to you about it forever.
Also on one occasion when I was there close to kitchen close, two servers were eating off plates in the food window. Thankfully I already had my order but I can't say the same for the others in the dining room...Gross!

Pros: Fantastic Fish Fry but.....

Cons: Horrible Service

Horrific experience. DO NOT EAT HERE. You expect upscale tavern fare at this restaurant. What you get is sub-grade grease. Doctored up food service junk. Crab cake of canned crab tasted like tunafish. In Shorewood, you're much better off going to Harry's or North Star.. even Village Pub has great bar food. Owner of the restaurant was extremely rude about a mess our baby girl had made, even though I was in the process of cleaning it up myself. I was embarrassed for him. You will regret the money you spend at this place. Do I have anything nice to say? The other wait staff was friendly and prompt IE the low grade food came quickly. Do I write reviews often? No, never, and I eat out a lot. This place was that bad.
