Oak City Grille Restaurant Review: The Oak City Grille, offering live music, provides a quiet respite just a stroll from Royal Oak’s eclectic shops and thumping entertainment venues. Sit outside or along the French doors inside to watch passersby, and partake in simple, well-executed, pan-seared crab cakes in lobster cream sauce; salads like Roma tomatoes with onions and blue cheese in a balsamic dressing; and panko-crusted mahi mahi in delicate, Champagne-infused, strawberry-orange marmalade sauce. Your mother would approve of the pot roast, served with stewed vegetables over chive-flecked mashed potatoes. Check out the list of handcrafted microbrews, a nice wine list that includes ports and Champagnes, and a good selection of martinis.
