Satisfy cravings for the sea with the fish 'n' chips ($12.99) and haul palates back onto dry land with a sizzling fajita ($12.49) bathed in a mélange of peppers and monterey jack cheese. Both locations also serve deluxe burgers such as the swiss-coated wild-mushroom burger ($9.99–$10.95) or the applewood-bacon-topped blue cheese burger ($9.49–$10.95). Flatbread pizzas ($8.95–$9.99), multifariously dressed salads ($10.99–$13.95), and sandwiches ($8.99–$13.95) round out the selections and ensure that tongues will be sufficiently stimulated without having to lick philosophy textbooks. Oak City's drink menu also dazzles libation-longing patrons with creative and classic cocktail selections. The stoli doli ($8.95), a house-infused smooth pineapple vodka, shares rank with a tangy top-shelf margarita ($8.95) and a wide array of beers.
