Sunday Lunch

My family and I stopped at Clanton's for Sunday lunch on our way home from the lake. The food was outstanding and the service was perfect. I would highly recommend this diner. Also, it was featured on Drive-ins, Diners and Dives with Guy Fieri. Will definitely return!

We were driving on the Rte 66 and stopped by at Clanton's since they recommended the place at the visitors center in Miami. We came and it was crowded so we thought it was no idea to get a table but we were wrong. A few minutes later we had a seat and ordered the Sunday lunch menu. There were... More

This is an old-fashioned, friendly diner. The onion rings are made fresh and use a flour batter instead of the egregious cornmeal batter used today. Our meal came with fresh wheat dinner rolls and the waitress made a substitution for me with no problems. The chicken-fried steak was large and tender. My only complaint was the gravy could have used... More

I had the pot roast mashed potatoes and green beans. I don't know what other reviewers are talking about when they say they got mushy canned green beans. Mine were bright green and very tasty. The pot roast was tender and very flavorful. The hot rolls were soft and really good. Our waitress was very attentive and joked with our... More

I tried this restaurant because it was one Guy Fieri visited on DDD. The featured dish was Chicken fried steak, which I ordered. I guess I am not used to Oklahoma culinary dishes..the gravy to me had no taste, the chicken fried steak (hamburger meat) was cold, like it was pre-cooked and sitting around waiting for someone to order it....

Went out of our way to stop here...they closed on a Saturday prior to the posted 2pm and manager locked the door in our face saying "we're closed" very rude and will advise everyone we know not to go there

I am very wary about ordering chicken fried steak anywhere. I am extremely picky and it has to be prepared a certain way. Clanton's Cafe has the best chicken fried steak-hands down. This is how it's supposed to be done. I ordered mine with a side of green beans and baked squash and they were both excellent. The green beans... More

Busy place. Good service. T-bone steak was good. Veggie plate not so good -- very bland with canned veggies -- but the homemade coconut pie made up for it. Clientele included locals and tourists passing through the area.

We took a day trip to try out this restaurant and see this part of the country. The place was very busy at two pm. We had a very attentive waitress. The down home food is very good. I enjoyed everything I ate. I did take home the salad because I wanted some lemon meringue pie which was to die... More
