We're a British couple who have been in the US for 3 months and this is the best meal we've had in this time. Stumbled upon the place by accident whilst passing through. We had the steak and the beef rib - both absolutely delicious! The chef certainly knows what s/he's doing. Also, really great service. It's a smoking tavern... More

Lovely quaint little tavern nestled at the crossroads of Waterloo Virginia. The food is incredible, and the beer selection is vast-The craft beer selection alone stands above any other local institution. The staff is amazingly attentive, world class even. The meat is locally sourced, and prepared in classic French order, and the management is top notch. Local celebrities grace the... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch, we sat at the bar, food was good the draw back is you can smoke at a bar. Did not realize how much I dislike having smoke drift into me as I'm eating .

I love this place! So authentic, but gets very smokey in the bar and the non-smoking area is a sterile ward. I am not one easily put off by smoke, but it gets bad here. The burgers, shrimp and fries are excellent. The staff is great. But I don't always want to step outside to avoid the smokey bar (in... More

Food was ok but this place is rundown, and bar room is smoke filled. Only other option is front room, unattractive. Service was very friendly. If you smoke, it'll be fine

I've eaten at the lone oak at least 6 times in the past 2 months and have not been disappointed once. Steaks are very good and prepared to order, best burger and Ruben I've had in the area. Service is spot on, friendly and professional, don't be deceived by its looks or the Harley's parked out front, this place is... More

Unless you like second hand cigarette smoke, it is not the place for you. Very much a bar atmosphere with not very good food. Friendly staff.
