“Went from Great to JUST another restaurant :-(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This used to be my favorite steakhouse in Tulsa. Today I visited again and the food was not what it used to be. I ordered the Ribeye and when it was brought out to me it wasn't even hot, it was like room temperature. I ordered medium well and it was very pink and less then a 1/4 inch thick. Very disappointed. My friend ordered the KC Strip which was also warm not hot and very chewey and tough. I am very disappointed because this has been a favorite for many years. I think they have now become an ordinary mainstream restaurant with average service and average food...The waitress didn't even ask if it was cooked to our specifications or did she come back to ask how it was. We simply left... they used to be very good..totally dissapointed

“Awful. In every way.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

If at some point this was a good restaurant I'd be amazed. From my single visit, this restaurant is tired, the staff indifferent, the management incompetent, and the food unpalatable. Unacceptable on all counts especially at these prices. Robert Irvine needs to pay them a visit.

An insipid salad started things off, poorly made and on warm dinnerware.

A $40 bone in ribeye was nearing well done instead of the requested medium rate. This was not a quality piece of meat, having a size able streak of gristle through it, and the meat was tough, gnarly, and flavorless. The baked potato was obviously reheated.

Servers were non engaging and unobservant. My barely eaten steak was unnoticed; I had to point out it was a bad steak. Response was a shrug, and the manager never arrived .

I don't know how this place stays in business.

“Great steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Steaks were cooked to order, almost cut'em with a fork, rolls to die for and the deserts were outstanding. Can't say enough about about the service, it was excellent.

“Best Steak in Tulsa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

The Spudder is hard to find but very much worth it! The steaks are high quality and melt in your mouth. Everything on the menu is delicious and the staff is always very friendly. This turned out to be the only steak place for me in Tulsa and I highly recommend seeking it out behind the Jiffy Lube on Sheridan near 61st.

“A spot for quality steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The early atmosphere of rough days in the oilfield mingles with oilfield signs, tools, photographs and a rustic atmosphere. But the food is the best part. This is one of Tulsa's best.
