“You'd Like McDonald's Better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

The bread was so dry it was like eating Melba toast. The beer was warm. The mozzarella sticks were terrible. The service was abysmal. We ate there on a Tuesday night and it took an hour to get our entrees. The entrees were at least edible-not good, but edible. We won't go back.

“Bar Only, then its worse”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

We have been here a few times, so i have given this place its fair share of chances. The food was great the 2nd time we ate here, back in early 2011. After that its Horrible, waited 20 mins for drink orders, an hour for a beer that was warm, never got refills, food is unexplanelably ridiculously overpriced and gross. They tried and miserably failed at an endeavour as a restraunt. The bar is almost as bad, we always have a DD, and every where we have gone in America soda and water are free. That being said, I had to pay $3 for a soda less the 8oz, when the beer special for the night was considerably less then the nonalcoholic drinks. Security is ran by a local police officer, kinda makes you wonder. The bar selection is dismal compared to lets say the Elks lodge, or any other drinking establishment is Tahlequah. The only thing they have is a dance floor, and the music isn't always that great, mostly lacking of the so called "DJ". My gerbil can scratch better in his ball. With all that being said, I would not suggest T-bones at all. If you want a nice date place go to The Branch downtown, wonderful upper class establishment, then head over to patrons on Fri/sat night for a more intimate experience. And if you just want to dance, take a DD and go to the hard rock in Tulsa, where world renowned dj's make an almost weekly appearance. CHEERS

“Bad Food Before Bullriding”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

We came in on Wed night, place wasn't swamped. It took us 35 minutes to get the appetizer and 50 minutes to get our food. When food came, couldn't cut the cold tbone with a knife. And we didn't even get all the food at once. We weren't even sure they were gonna take the steak off the bill. Drove down from Vinita, won't do this again. This was terrible!!!

“unpredictable food quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

The last time I went here they served Tyson processed chicken nuggets as an 8 dollar plate of chicken strips. I know exactly what I was served because we had a bag of them at home in the fridge. The time before that episode I had gone with a large group and several people got sick.

Another problem here is on Sundays they will serve a brunch buffet. That's all well and good but what you don't find out until you're already seated is that they don't serve the regular menu during this time and that buffet is both expensive and underwhelming.

The pluses for this place? They do MMA if you're into that sort of thing. I'm not so I have nothing positive to say at the facility and won't be going back.

“Decent meal, reasonable prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

If you happen to find yourself in Tahlequah, T-Bones is a satisfying, if not great, meal. The steak was a bit overcooked and a bit salty; the cut was not prime for certain.

This is the type of place that you go to if you want to share a friendly, casual dinner with friends. There is nothing exciting on the menu, and no one at our table was impressed by the food, but everyone finished most of their meal. In other words, you leave full, satisfied, but it's not anywhere you would go for a special meal and there is no craving to return.

Service is very friendly and that helped the meal a lot; it probably raised this rating from a poor to average rating.
