The menu offers USDA prime cuts of beef, delectable seafood selections, and more. Meals are prepared by Council Oak’s chefs on the state-of-the-art J&R wood fire grills and Josper coal ovens, both of which help bring out all the subtle flavors in the meats. The perfect complement, Council Oak’s bar offers well-known and approachable liquors, alongside an exclusive list of high-end spirits. An extensive wine-by-the-glass selection and intimate seating along with live entertainment is offered nightly in the lounge area.

Wine Spectator Award of Excellence Hard Rock Atlantic City

Wine Spectator Award of Excellence

This award is presented to restaurants that show the utmost dedication to the quality of their wine program. Council Oak Steak and Seafood boasts an expansive showcase with immense depth and breadth of regions, producers, vintages, and bottle formats.

Oyster Recycling Program

Council Oak Fish is doing its part to ensure the sustainability of the seafood industry.

While “fish” may be in the name, the restaurant serves a lot of oysters — in just months, we can easily rack up around 25,000 pounds worth, which is roughly 50,000 shells. That’s because so many people love eating them — and eating a lot of them. However, we’re making an effort to make sure there will continue to be enough to go around. We participate in an oyster-shell recycling program in partnership with Stockton University and the Cooperative Extension of Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES).

Oyster farmers are able to use the recycled shells to raise more oysters, ensuring the industry’s sustainability.
