“Ollie's is a great family restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I love this place. You have to start with the obvious..... The trains! There are model trains making the loop around the tracks hanging from the ceiling. It is a little noisy, but sooo worth it. Adults and kids enjoy the trains as well as the other memorabilia thru out the restaurant. next, the food is really good. We went with a group of six adults for a Saturday morning breakfast. The regular menu is great, and the breakfast buffet offers lots of choices. And the food was hot! Finally, the waitress was extremely friendly and efficient. Overall, the value, the food, the service and the atmosphere make this a wonderful restaurant and a Tulsa icon. I love it.

“Poor quality food.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

My husbands chicken fried steak was a preformed perfectly round piece of meat. It was very very thin and the waitress said they buy them frozen and bread them on site. It looked like something from a Swanson TV dinner. The chicken strips weren't made in house either. I can't comment on the taste. We walked out. The waitress had black and broken jagged teeth. Won't be back.

“Rude Waitresses...Burnt/Undercooked buffet items.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

If you're not a 'regular' at this restaurant..you may be disappointed.
The breakfast buffet was a disappointment!
I feel bad for the owners...wait staff alienates unfamilar customers and lavishes over the obvious regulars.
Nice atmosphere...good cooks and waitresses would make this a first choice.

“Railroad themed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

If you love trains it's a unique experience. On historic Rte 66 in an old converted train station. Above your head the entire area is taken up by rather large model trains that run around and tootle along while you munch away.
Don't come here for the food though, it's all about the trains. The food is OK, a fairly standard presentation of american fare. Lunch time buffet of meat loaf, fried chicken and catfish + fixins to go with. All reasonable good and for $7 bucks a head.
Very nice wait staff.

“Used to be excellent - Horrible experience this time!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Our 14 year-old grandson was visiting us in Tulsa and we wanted to take him back to Ollie's Station where we took him 7-8 times when he was 4-7 years old. This time it was a terrible experience. The place was packed with customers. Waited for a table, then waited 20 minutes for a waitress to take our order. We did manage to order an appetizer, however the waitress did not bring us any silverware, plates or napkins when it was delivered. After we asked her for silverware, she came back and SLAMMED silverware in a heap on the table and left again without taking our order. We decided to leave at that point. We had a $20 groupon we had purchased for the occasion. The manager was very nice and immediately agreed to give us our money back for the groupon certificate. He seemed to know they were completely understaffed for the number of guests. To be fair, it was about 12:30 on a Sunday in Tulsa, and there were probably a lot of people there who just came from Church. It was a great place to take a 4-8 year-old who enjoys the running trains. I would be sure to go during an off-peak time when the service would be better.
