My husband, son and myself went to the Brooklyn Center location on Jan 20th. It was hard to find something on the menu that wasnt a sandwich or burger. I settled on a daily special of lasagna. When our food arrived we hadnt been given any

I use to go here from time to time because I lived near here. I will not be going back. Food is ok but overpriced. I invited 7 friends to go there on a thursday night which is a younger, louder night. The guy at the door said my friend

As a proud resident of Brookly Center I'll agree that not every eatery in our town is a winner. That said, those who have written bad reviews of Oak City are so far off base I've got to wonder what their agenda is...\r

I had the absolute worst dining experience ever at the Brooklyn Center location awhile back and I will not be returning in the future. I was out with four other people (who also will no longer be patrons) that night and they are all aware

I recently went here with my family for the first time. We all were very excited to go for the all you can eat crab legs on Wednesday nights. When the waitress came to the table she was very snotty and not overly friendly. She didn't even advise that we got the salad bar along with our meal.
She acted as if it was an inconvience to have to serve us.
Food was not very good. Crab legs were cold when they arrived at the table. We complained to the manager and he seemed less than empathetic to our situation and never apologized for the poor service or food. Would not recommend this restaurant. Manager was also rude and inconsiderate.

Oak City in Brooklyn Center is a little gold mine for happy hour. 2 dollar drinks and beers 4 dollar long islands you cant go wrong with this place for happy hour! They even have happy hour 3-6:30/10-midnight EVERYDAY even on the weekends. I had a teryaki burger and couple cocktails and couldn't have been happier with my decision. The burger was cooked perfectly and really juicy!! Service was no less than perfect. Our server let us know about some nightly specials that we will certainly be trying out(all you can eat ribs on thursday nights can't miss that!). All in all we had a great time and will be returning and my advice to readers is to check this place out!!!

We found our hot spot for next seasons football games! We saw an ad for Sunday Brunch and figured we would give it a try, we were not dissapointed! We walked in and my husbands jaw dropped when he saw all of the TV's ( I think the manager said they have 29) while my husband was admiring the TVs I spent almost a half hour reading all of the quotes they are all over the walls and even embroidered on most of the booths. Niether one of us is much of a bloody mary drinker but when we saw the build your own bloody bar we had to try it. Food on the buffet was not only delicious but hot. One of the Items on the buffet was running a little low but the employee keeping an eye on it said he would be right back with a full pan and POOF there he was. Other great things about our visit included, beautiful and clean bathrooms, a pleasant bartender, nice wine list, a friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

This is a fabulous place to just go and chill! The music is great and isn't so loud that you can't hear what the person is saying to you across the table. The food is outstanding and I would recommend anyone to try their flatbread pizza! NUM!!!
We were there on the opening night in Brooklyn Center and have gone back several times. The Sunday brunch is great!! I would just suggest that you have free Mamosa's for brunch but other than that - it's great!
The waitstaff is phenomenol. Big kudos to the manager. Anytime you need anything - he is right there to help and even comes out to your table to talk with you!
I give this a BIG thumbs up!!! Nice addition to the City of Brooklyn Center.

We have eaten there twice and both times with our boys (4 and 1) and felt comfortable bringing them there. The food was very good, the atmosphere is cozy, but not too formal. The service was very good and we will be going back again. Hopefully next time we can go without the kids and enjoy a romantic dinner! So it is a kid friendly and date friendly place to go. My only fear is that it won't be around long if the word doesn't get out. It is not in a location known for fine food and I would hate to see this locally owned/ran restaurant disappear because not enough people know about it. So check it out!

UPDATE...We found out a few more great things about this restaurant. They have live music on certain nights, game specials on Sundays and then in the evening it is Family Night and kids eat free...an awesome deal! They also have nightly specials like Walleye fish fry on Fridays and All you can eat ribs on Thursdays. We will be going back for that one for sure. My husband ordered the baby back ribs the other night and they were so yummy! Even their chicken tenders and cole slaw are better than the average place. They have Captain Crunch tenders, which are very crispy and sweet and served with a fab mustard sauce. The cole slaw has a pina colada sauce and pineapple mixed in and it is so tasty (and I usually never eat cole slaw). Just a few things I thought I would throw out there. And not only is the food good, but the servers genuinely seem to care if you are enjoying yourself and have been willing to substitute as needed and with no problems. This is no chain restaurant for sure, but local people that care about their customers.

Four of us ate here recently and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere at Oak City is really nice. I loved reading the quotes on the walls. We shared appetizers, The bbq chicken pizza we ordered was delicious as were the wings with cajun ranch. Somebody next to us ordered nachos and they looked really good (ridiculously huge). I had a mandarin mojito and my wife had a pomegranate margarita. We both thought our drinks were really good. The friends we were with didn't have any specialty drinks. Im sure my buddy's captain coke was just fine.

Entrees at our table included the ribs which I had-Really good, fettucinne alfredo-also very good I was told, shrimp tempura-Tasty with a spicy sauce (I sampled one) and a pasta with ham and peas in a white sauce-my wife raved about it and she is PICKY and hard to please. Trust me, I hear about it every day.

My wife and I eat out a lot and often times we leave dissapointed in the food and/or service. Oak City was a pleasant surprise. Great Food, Great Service and Great Atmosphere. We will be back!!

The variety of entrees is great. Lunchtime fare or soup, sandwich and salad combos is marvelous. The burgers are unmatched - should make the Twin Cities Top 10 soon. Fries are the thin, hand cut variety and very good. Coleslaw has a touch of pineapple to make it very interesting.

Service is unmatched. Staff is polite, professional, friendly without being overbearing, and helpful to the extreme.

The beer selection is limited but the place is new so keep watching for more beers.
