Fried oysters to DIE for

LOVED this place! Coleslaw was also notably fresh and great. There was a toddler who sat next to us dipping her cracker into a bowl of gumbo and licking it repeatedly; cutest thing I ever saw. My husband commented that we should make a second visit before leaving Tulsa.

Florida & Maine lobster are different in taste and texture. Born and raised in Miami (Florida, not Oklahoma), I much prefer the former. That is why the White River Fish Market is the place to be on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings for Lobster Night! The restaurant itself is nothing special, and you order before picking a place to sit. But,... More

I went there to purchase seafood for a gumbo I was making. The seafood was fresh, large variety and the counter help was very knowledgeable. Other people in line were asking questions and wanting to make their own gumbo when I left. Overall I will go back.

Had the pleasure of visiting this local gem while on business in Tulsa. Lunch was amazing and there's not a bad choice. Not fancy and in the wrong part of town but what a great atmosphere and vibe. Fresh fish, some southern choices and awesome service. Definitely a must while in Tulsa.

Kinda outta the way but dang well worth it. You cannot leave hungry-I promise. When I drove up my expectations were discounted-I couldn't have been more wrong. Don't judge this book by its cover. Good, Good, Good

I had the fried catfish and shrimp with sides of green beans and rice were good (just not great). My boyfriend had the broiled salmon with onion rings, and was also unimpressed. I had high hopes for the experience, as the reviews were amazing. Though the service was friendly and fast, both my meal and the food that my boyfriend... More

I have lived in Tulsa for a long time and have always heard great things about White River, but just recently went and ate. I had the Lobster and it was amazing. So fresh especially being all the way in Oklahoma. I am from Boston originally, and know what a good lobster should taste like and this was the one.... More

Recommended by our hotel. What a find! Doesn't look like much from the street and is in a business-type neighborhood. But was the food ever good! Fresh fish in Tulsa??!! Had 12 beautiful grilled shrimp while husband had fried oysters (20?)! It is definitely a fish market but the food is great and worth the trip!

Recently was in Tulsa on business and went to White River Fish Market for Lunch. WOW is about the best word, Fresh Fish, Fast Service and Excellent friendly staff. Don't be surprised if you need a To Go box. I had the blackened Mahi-Mahi and also got some gumbo. Let me say i was very happy fish was cooked perfectly... More

A Tulsa staple since 1932. You can either eat at the restaurant or buy fish at the market to take home and cook. The fish is very fresh and portions are big. You won't leave hungry.
