Big Oak Tavern has officially set its roots in historic Roswell, GA. Just off the beaten path of Alpharetta Highway and Cherry Street, Big Oak Tavern offers its patrons American style cuisine with an Asian influence. Named for the stately Oak that stands statuesque in the restaurant’s front lawn, the Big Oak, strives to embody the same essence of strength, resilience, and sustainability. These qualities came into play more than 10 years ago when a kitchen fire nearly devastated the entire structure. Despite this significant setback, they were able to rebuild and persevere. The original fireplace and wood floors were able to be salvaged and serve as a reminder of their journey. The Owner, Nate Armstrong, has an extensive background in culinary arts and restaurant management that has served him in creating a menu that is sure to challenge even the most discriminating of pallets.

    The wedge salad was huge and very good. The Cod sandwich was average. The service was very good but my biggest complaint was the amount of wine in my glass of wine. I have never seen such a small amount of wine served. I thought it might have been a mistake but the second glass was a small as the first.

    We had brunch after church. Meal was delicious. They provided DJ who played energetic music. Noice level was perfect and we could talk and hear each other and enjoyed the music playing in the background. Environment was clean. Waitress did a good job, but she should’ve removed our plates as we finished eating. It was my birthday but it wasn’t acknowledged so I did not inquire about dessert. I had included that info in the reservation. My only complaint about the experience is the parking lot. It had rained and I circled around trying to figure out where to park so my tires would not get dirty/muddy. Parking lot needs improvement, but don’t skip this place. The food is fantastic! We will return!

    We were seated upstairs (we were the only ones to occupy a table upstairs), so I feel that resulted in poor service. We were left (twice) with empty glasses and were not checked on often. It took quite a while for everyone to receive their food (plates came up the stairs only two at a time; this may have been due to lack of help), and the only child in our party received her food last (at least 10 minutes after the first set of plates were delivered). One member of our party ordered a hamburger, that did not arrive with requested condiments, and was not even warm. Two other members of the party also did not receive their food as ordered.

    We dined here for the first time this past week. We ordered salad and our meals. The music was quite loud and we asked if it could be lowered, but nothing was done till our second request much later on. An hour later, our salad had still not arrived and sightings of our server were scarce. We asked three times to speak to a manager and it took some time for someone to come by. Finally, our salad was served at same time as meals,about 70 minutes after being seated. The beef kebab meal had only two chunks of beef for $29 and was topped with super salty onion straws. The lady at next table also said her green beans were way too salty and requested another serving be prepared without salt. Not the best experience. Perhaps we will try again sometime. We will see. Management was non-apologetic.

    Sat evening 6pm. Sat at the bar, listen to shabbily dressed bartender tell a customer he was unaware of the prices of various red wines, and couldn’t explain why the red wine was kept in a cooler, which apparently is a no no. Ordered mussels as a appetizer, and they were great, lemony, garlicky, jalapeños, just great. I ordered a rack of ribs, which were huge, unfortunately, also cold. Wife’s hamburger, ordered medium, served well done. Not sure I would go back, lots of other options in Roswell.

    We went for Roswell restaurant week. They seated us at the tables near the bar. It was freezing cold and the waitress told us the heat has been broken for a week. No heaters, no notice of the broken heat. Who could enjoy any food when it’s 50 indoors. I ordered something, and literally 5 min later, before the appetizer and salad was even served, I asked to switch to beef instead of the fish. The cook said no!! Will never go back. Avoid this restaurant.

    This was truly one of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve ever encountered. My partner and I came here for a date night to try their Roswell Restaurant Week menu. Once seated, our waiter came and visit us once and then never returned. Three tables dined and paid before we were even asked for our entrees. The waiter continuously ignored us & gave us horrible attitude. For reference, our reservation was at six, and we didn’t leave the restaurant until 9. When we finally received our food (after having to get up and go to the bar to ask for service), they served us our steaks and they we black. I’m not exaggerating when I say that. We ordered medium rare filet and they were charred on the outside and fully cooked on the inside. I finally asked to speak to the manager. She was friendly and said she would correct the food. When we got our steaks back, they were literally so uncooked and dripping red. No one came back around to help us or check on us, once again, so we returned up front to request the manager again. At this point, I was in tears by the horrible service & how disingenuous the staff were, so after we talked to the manger, we left the restaurant.

    We found Big Oak via OpenTable but would not go back and it’s not on my list if a must try restaurant. the food was good but they were out of several key items. In addition, the server forgot several requests and we decided to go without. There were space heaters around us and the parking lot was dark.

    Went to the restaurant at the time of my reservation and it was closed. It should have been open almost an hour at that point. Several other people were waiting to get in as well. The back door was open so we assumed workers were there but we chose to leave and go somewhere else.
