Justin Shoener moved to the Queen City from Orlando, Florida to join both O-Ku and Oak Steakhouse Charlotte as the general manager. With 22 years of experience in the culinary industry, Justin takes southern hospitality to a new level and ensures guests have a memorable dining experience. His passion for customer service is driven by a desire to help others create “wow moments.” From being a part of celebrations to welcoming new diners to Oak Steakhouse, Justin enjoys being a part of it all. As General Manager of Oak Steakhouse, he is excited to work with the staff to create a welcoming restaurant for all diners. Prior to moving to Charlotte, Justin spent 11 years as the director of operations for a restaurant group in Orlando. During his time with the group, he opened several restaurants and oversaw a variety of concepts. Initially starting his hospitality career as a dishwasher and working his way up to server and then management, Justin has a unique understanding of the behind-the-scenes effort needed to run a successful restaurant. He is excited to bring that passion and knowledge to Charlotte as the general manager at Oak Steakhouse. When not at Oak or O-Ku, Justin enjoys making his own memories with his wife and two kids. A native of Madison, Wisconsin, he is a huge Green Bay Packers fan and enjoys ice hockey.
