Nice bar area. Very open - but often busy and loud (but that's usually a good sign!). Food was great - I had the Falafel Taco's... YUM!! Everyone said the burgers were awesome as well as the flatbread of the day. The Cheesesteak Eggroll appetizer was AWESOME!! A fun place to go for good food and enjoying company of friends and family. May be a little too loud for business. They have a nice covered patio for outdoor dining as well. I would recommend this place for sure!

We were greeted and seated quickly on a Tues. night. It wasn't crowded, but we got there early. The waitress was efficient. We both had burgers cooked to our specifications. They were really delicious and served with hand cut fries. The restaurant was smaller than I thought with both booths and tables. I would return.

We really enjoy the food at the Oak Stave. Interesting drinks of the day, creative flat bread pizza of the week and a nice selection of entrees and burgers. We have visited twice and both times it was on a slow day and time. While the servers are pleasant, they aren't very knowledgeable and they are also not very attentive. We ordered the poutine of the week and the server wasn't sure what the sauce was but she was pretty sure it was sour cream (didn't bother to go check). It turned out to be horseradish sauce which was good but not what expected.
We will return because the food is good and the location is convenient. The service needs work!

We are looking for a local restaurant to make our "go to" place.
We frequently eat out and somewhere we could walk to seems good - especially with summer coming.
We have eaten here a few times and unfortunately the same issues crop up.
The decor and layout are super - it's ambiance is great.
The bar is really attractive and the bar tenders have been very personable. We will probably continue to come for a quick drink before heading elsewhere for dinner.
On Saturday we stopped in for dinner at around 9 pm.

We were shown to a table right away (it wasn't very busy). No menus for ten minutes and no-one approached us. Later we were told our table's server had "gone home".
It took a while to get a drink too.
When dinner arrived the traditional pub food (burgers and fish fry) were good but the grilled salmon was pretty bland .... not to mention half the mashed potato was cold.

There's no excuse for poor service .... we will continue to detach for our #localplace!
