Our family weekend was begging for a dinner out but we were leery of a Portland (ME) restaurant on a holiday Friday night. A quick search turned up Oak Street Bistro just a short ride away. What a gem! Serene, friendly, calm atmosphere with the piano in the background. Attentive waitress made our visit great! Too many favorites on the... More

My family and I were going to go to our normal Sunday spot, but they happened to be closed.. We ended up here on a whim, but we were glad we did. The food was good, they made a meal for my daughter that was reasonably priced, and they gave us some complimentary pastries that were absolutely amazing. The staff... More

Our favorite is the muscles, we compare this dish with any other muscle dish and so far our favorite. The staff is attentive and welcoming. We especially like the bar on weekends the music pair is...

My husband and I have been camping in this area for 8 years now and always pass by this place. Finally this weekend we went in for dinner. It looks like a little place from the outside but when you walk in it is big but inviting. The lighting is warm, they have local artists wares on display for sale... More

We were on the verge of taking each other's heads off from hunger so we decided to stop in at Oak Street Bistro on our weekly trek to our place by the bog. Our crankiness disappeared once being seated and treated to a fantastic meal. The owner genuinely cares for guest comfort and seems to know we need a quiet... More

Drove from Ogunquit Maine to dinner at Oak Street Bistro. My hubby and I wanted steak for dinner, the special was a 75 day wet aged 20 ounce rib eye...outstanding! The bartender Matt was great, the bread was served warm with butter, the steak was served with choice of potato, we ordered baked and asparagus was the vegetable. Will be... More

My husband and I are regulars. We usually go on Friday night. Always consistently good for the past couple of years. I even go there for lunch with friends once in awhile. However, the last time we were there the food was totally different and not so good. They were great and very professional and did not charge for the... More
