A staple of Seminole Hard Rock, Council Oak Steaks & Seafood returns in its new home offering the sophisticated, classic-American steakhouse fare guests know and love. Overlooking a lavish pool with opulent waterfalls, Council Oak’s new design features an open-kitchen, in-house butcher shop and dry-aging room outfitted with pink Himalayan salt walls, multi-level seating, and a glass-enclosed wine room highlighting the restaurant’s award-winning selection of more than 400 labels. The menu offers USDA prime cuts of beef, signature raw bar and delectable seafood selections, and more. With the new open-kitchen, guests can catch all of the action as their 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 as part of the One Ounce Club.
