Diner Reviews
  • "The food was decent, however it could have been seasoned better. Reasonably priced. Great ambience."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Wasn't expecting the level of detail and how good the food would be. Excellent choice for our 29th anniversary. Great martini's, outstanding greens and steak! My husband loved the stuffed catfish. Pecan pie finished it off perfectly. Will definitely go back with our supper club."

  • "I love KD's in general but when I made reservations for 2 parties of 6 to be seated together and when we got there they said we could not get a table together me and my family were very upset. My family traveled from Tulsa to have dinner with us to try out KD's. I don't know if they will come back down to eat here again. Messed up a special occasion be of the waitresses."

  • "Service was slow, entree's for 4 people came out 2 at a time, 6-7 minutes apart. Appetizers order was wrong, request for extras were ignored. Overall food was great, service was pathetic. Will not return!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The service was awesome. They did forget one of our appetizers but quickly nipped it in the bud by giving it to us for free plus an extra one! Food was great jambalaya and stuffed catfish was to die for. I was not to impressed with the fried green tomatoes though they tasted frozen. But not a deal breaker for me!"

  • "This was the second time I've been to this restaurant. The atmosphere was great and it was a very good time. The food was exceptional as well as the service. I would recommend anyone that loves southern food to dine in at the restaurant."

  • "Went to KD's for my birthday dinner with my husband. Made a reservation and arrived a little early, but was seated in no time. Our waitress seated us and took our order and we were served our appetizer, drinks, and meal in a very timely manner and it was a Friday night, so we didn't expect such quick service. We were pleasantly surprised. The lighting in the restaurant was very dim and romantic. Perfect for a date night or special occasion with your significant other. We loved it."

  • "Best restaurant in the world! Definitely your money's worth."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Well we love KD at our household. His restaurant... well its cool looking inside. Not really for foodies, although the gravy was great. However my chicken fried steak was about on par with Grandy's... yeah. And everything was smothered in black pepper and salt. It's a fun restaurant anyway."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I put off trying this restaurant for awhile. I finally tried it, and the food was amazing! I definitely recommend this place to anyone that is wanting to try southern food!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Love that you can make reservations. We went to celebrate our anniversary and it was nice to know we wouldn't have to wait long for a table. The text feature was nice, but inconvenient for our evening because we agreed to not use cell iPhones during dinner. Lovely waitress."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Very noise could not hear anything that any one at the table for four said."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Took my girlfriend for her birthday. Was seated immediately and our waitress (Kim) was great. The food was very good and that peach cobbler may be the BEST I've ever ate."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The food at KDs is extremely good. Buttermilk biscuits and fried green tomatoes are great appetizers. The group had honey chicken, chicken & waffles, and blackened stuffed catfish. They were all thoroughly enjoyed. The desserts weren't the best, they were just so-so. Blackberry cobbler had maybe 5 berries in it, it was mostly breading and was not served warm. The buttermilk pie and peanut butter pie were also okay, but just tasted like store bought. Overall, it was a good experience, but you might want to save money and skip dessert. Also, the restaurant does have a modern, louder atmosphere, but the older generations can also enjoy it too. The staff is very accommodating."

  • "The service was wonderful. Dining experience was great and the food was to die for."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "First time diners. Menu is a bit limited, but what KD's does, it does well. The pork ribs (dry rub) were excellent, but the stars of the show were the mashed potatoes and black eye peas. Less favorable review from others at our table on the honey chicken and the southern fried chicken salad. Prices are quite reasonable with the average entree between $14 - $18. Will return to try the fried catfish."

  • "Had my brother and family from New Mexico, and looking for a new place to try. KD's really was better than out expectation. Our service was very good, considering we had 8 in our group, and everyone really loved there food. I had the chicken fry, which I had not had for years anywhere else either, and it was huge and mouth watering. The only downside, was that my 39 year old son has been a vegetarian since age 5, and there is very limited options on this menu for him. He did the Wedge Salad without the bacon, and some of his daughters Mack and Cheese, but I think some additions along the Vegetarian line would be good. We really enjoyed out experience, and the great food. Certainly will tell our friends and family about KD's."

  • "The pork robs, chicken fried steak & black berry pie taste great. Price were reasonable. Check menu online. We will go back"

  • "It was so loud we could not have a normal conversation. Wish something could be done to change that. Our waitress was great, and hats off to the chef."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "First time at K.D.'s but shared my concerns with others who had a similar experience. Had clients in town for a Thursday night so made a reservation for 6:00 p.m. After approaching the hostess stand for the 3rd time at 6:40 we were finally seated. The wait staff was very good. The food could have been excellent but was lukewarm; at best. I did enjoy the atmosphere around the bar area. I will go back and hope they get it together. Still a relatively young restaurant."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We went at 4:45 pm with a reservation the hostess sat all the bar tables at once. They had one server on and he couldn't handle it by himself. Took a long time to have wine poured, he spilt my wine on the table, then took forever to get check after we told him we had a movie to catch. Food was good not spectacular. Great wine list though"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food was some of the best comfort good we've had and my 12-year-old and 14-year-old grandsons from Connecticut were thrilled to be there. They are huge Thunder fans and peppered our friendly server about how often KD was there and what other Thunder players showed up regularly! One surprise was the decor--quietly classy--not a lot of sports kitsch. Great time!"

  • "The scenery is awesome however I ordered the Chicken Pesto and the Chicken was very dry. We had a wonderful waiter..."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Very pleasant dinner. It was a big hit with our relatives. Very noisy bit we didn't care. Very fun! Got a wrong order but was corrected immediately!! Amazing service!!"

  • "Ate at KDs with my wife as our first date after our second daughter was born. We had heard good things but still didn't really know what to expect. I have come to loathe going out to eat because service at restaurants is generally horrible. KDs, in comparison, is a breath of fresh air. We loved our food and laughed a bit about how the decor looks like it was designed by a mid 20s millionaire (a tiny bit tacky), but the star of the show was the service. Everything came out at just the right time. The waitress was appropriately attentive. Our plates were cleared promptly. I haven't experienced these basic service traits in a long time. KDs is doing it right! Would definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Service definitely could have been quicker and better. Sitting for 15 minutes for a drink is way too long after walking there in the 100 degree Oklahoma heat. Waitresses need be trained better."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Ok for what it is. Friendly but not well trained staff. Food is ok, but the kitchen knowledge of gluten is lacking."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We were very pleased with our visit to KD's. Excellent service, good food. Seated immediately with our reservation. Jambalaya was a little spicy for our taste, but honey chicken and cream chicken were true Southern food."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Group of 8 (6 adults and 2 kids) on a Sunday evening, July 20. Had reservations and was immediately seated. Waitress very attentive and friendly. Ordered 2 plates of fried green tomatoes. Good but would not call them great. Food came really fast which pleased the children, but made me suspicious as one person in our party ordered fried chicken. He immediately said the chicken was not hot. Two others had the same comment - food not hot. One ordered grilled salmon and the other ordered jambalay. 3 ordered fried catfish and it was hot. So obviously, part of our order was precooked and part was cooked fresh. We didn't complain but certainly disappointing for what we paid. Probably will not go back."

  • "It had been long awaited I drove in from Dallas and decided it would be a cool way to celebrate during my birthday weekend! After online research I knew that The Chicken Fried Steak and a ThunderTini were a must!( However, once at the restaurant I realized they have the coolest menu presentation !! ( I won't spoil it for you... you'll have to see it for yourself!) The portion size is well worth the price (you may leave with leftovers} and the drink was just right!! The atmosphere is beautiful, the music is vibrant and jamming, the pictures and display cases are really neat ( we took a lot of pictures) I kept hoping KD would make a surprise visit while I was there...Eh well maybe next time because there will most def be a next time!"

  • "Went to KD'S for my husband birthday got the parmasean wings some you can tell had been sitting out and some you can tell were fresh so I had hot and cold wings and the French fries was cold as well. ...that was disappointing. This was my 3rd time here and never had any problems b4. Then our steaks wasn't cooked right so they had to re cook them. But other than that it was great friendly waitress we didn't have to wait forever for our food."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We have been to KD's before and it was excellent. Everything this visit was mostly excellent except for the chicken fried steak. It lacked flavor and was mostly batter. I would not order it again. The sides were excellent! Our wait staff, Patricia, was EXCELLENT and I was very impressed with her."

  • "This was a special occasion for us coming from out of state to visit family. Even though we had made a reservation we still had to wait and were not giving the table we reserved but were seated in the back room. Our waitress was not informative in the least and we had to ask numerous questions concerning the menu to squeeze information out of her . It was awhile before we received our food and our meals were cold; probably from waiting too long for the waitress to serve them. The manager did give us a free meal and free dessert to try and correct the problem which was appreciated. Overall food (though a little cold) was amazing and next time we are in town we will be returning to Kd's restaurant."
