In the heart of downtown Columbia overlooking the state capital, you will find a restaurant on the corner that gives off a luxurious, rustic, and inviting aura. Not so long ago, one of my best friends and I decided to give The Oak Table a chance, after hearing many great things about Oak Steakhouse in Charleston, SC. As we walked in to get some lunch, we immediately felt welcomed. The rays of sun were shining in behind the bar and gave a comforting ambiance that one would desire when catching up with a friend over a bite to eat. The service and food were big contributors to our good experience, but the best part about The Oak Table is what it brings to the city of Columbia. As long as I have been able to remember, Columbia always gave the home-away from home feel but always lacked the benefits of a vibrant downtown area. That is probably the greatest gift this restaurant gives, and it doesn't hurt that food and atmosphere are also pretty comparable.
