Dining Guide of Tulsa: Part 1

Welcome to the dining guide of Tulsa (and surrounding communities)!

Through our stay here we have been to several restaurants and I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to review them:

McGills Steakhouse

Located inside the Cherokee Casino and Hotel this restaurant is by far the nicest within the casino. Although it is pricy the food is really good as long as you don't mind the traditional heavy steakhouse meal. The first time I went there I ordered the tilapia. It was good but I would suggest ordering it a little medium to keep it moist. The french onion soup was also amazing, one of the best I've had. The next time we went I had the lobster with drawn butter which was also great. Not great for the waistline but I'm almost sure I had a salad with it...does that count? Since the lobster was so great I have also ordered the pasta with lobster sauce which had much more lobster in it than I expected!

LoneStar Steakhouse

Located in Owasso this restuarant was good but didn't really compare to the steakhouses we have in Texas (ironically enough). The margaritas were good which was what that evening needed! I got the El Paso salad with steak which was great but beware of the house dressing, super spicy!

Full Moon Cafe

This restaurant is in Tulsa and usually features dueling pianos on the weekend. We went there on a Sunday and instead had two guys with guitars, banjos and such. It was still and entertaining evening. One thing we ordered was fried calimari but unfortunately it was pretty pre-fab... I had the full moon coconut shrimp which were delicious!

Let me know if you have been to any great places in the area!
