Went to Oak City Grill on the spur of the moment because we got tired of waiting for the waitstaff at La Dulce to get us some wine. (I'm sure it was just the night). We've been to Oak City Grill a number of times and have always had a great meal. This was no exception. It's not chic like... More

During Royal Oak restaraunt week, my wife and I decided to try out a place we've never been to in Royal Oak - so we ended up at Oak City Grille, and it turned out to be an excellent choice. We arrived around 7:30pm on Saturday night and we were greeted and seated right away by Christian. It turns out... More

One of my favorite places in Royal Oak. Great food. Love it in summertime with all the doors/windows open.

We went somewhat early, so the crowds did not yet have a chance to build up, and seating was not a problem. Plenty of room without being smashed together, and the sound level allowed for comfortable conversation. The menus is not extravagant, but it covers beef, lamb, chicken and fish with ample portions and well-prepared dishes. We enjoyed the chicken... More

5 stars, red pepper appetizer is the best! Steaks are wonderful as well! Can't wait to go back. Favorite downtown restaurant!

This place used to be one of my favorites but I've been very disappointed on my last two visits. First, the website has a lot of items that are no longer available, such as the shrimp cocktail, bruschetta, whitefish, and yellowfin tuna, and theses are only the items we were considering! The prices are also out of date, the filet... More

My husband and I stopped in hopping to grave a quick bite to eat. The menu had some surprising options. The chipotle salmon was delicious as were the bacon wrapped scallops. Yumm. The cocktail selection was pretty good I had a featured anejo tequila old fashioned. The man playing at the bar was phenomenal! Played a bunch of 90's hits.... More

I don't believe they take reservations and it was a busy time in Royal Oaks because of the Glass & Pottery Arts Festival. We arrived around 6:30 and was able to get a table. Our dinners were wonderful...Steak AuPoivre, lamb dinner and Whitefish -- all delicious! Service was also excellent -- it was SO hot in the kitchen that night... More

Nice café for lunch. Good variety of food and drinks on the menu and everyone in our group had a good meal. Service was good. Not sure I would go there for a dinner date but definitely would be back for lunch.

We always seem to meet here for birthday gatherings. It has a diverse enough menu to cover the carnvores, pescatarians and vegetarians in the group. I like any and all of their fish and their specials. It's fun to stay to watch the band above the bar.
