    The Artichoke was a great surprise. It was not what I expected since it was so far away from major populated areas. The old house turned into restaurant setting was cozy and inviting. The service was great and the food was fresh. I will return.

    I went here for my birthday. It had been a few years since my last visit and I was disappointed. They crab cakes were not as good as they once were and I think they might have been over cooked. Someone at my party ordered the KC strip. It was tough and had a lot of fat. I love the atmosphere at this restaurant and I might come back again but if the next experience is as bad as this one I won't come back.

    The Artichoke Restaurant is our favorite special occasion restaurant or if we just want to treat ourselves to a delicious meal. The service and ambiance is excellent, and Diana and Jim Sellers could not be more attentive to their guests if we were family. Always a treat and an experience. Joni & Bob Rodenbusch

    I've been here many times, and the specials are always great and fresh. They are only open 5-9pm, Tuesday-Saturday. Fresh ingredients are used from the garden near the parking lot. The atmosphere is comfortable, romantic, and relaxing. Various art is available to enjoy or purchase. There are few tables so call ahead, or make a reservation online.

    We have made it a point to go on Wednesday, Prime Rib special night, many times. We've never been disappointed. However, just recently their Prime Rib was heavily flavored with a strong black pepper. Almost too strong. Still good, but left my mouth burning.

    Celebrating a birthday and was personally attended to by the owner. Steak was a bit pricey, but cooked to perfection and nice cut of beef. Companions ordered seafood dishes - far less expensive than steak and plates were brimming. Salads were among the best we've ever had - fresh from their garden. We dined early at 6 pm on a Tuesday night and by the time we left, the place was packed and noise level raised considerably. Granted, this place is near a lake community but still very remote; however, the quality and choice of food selections merits the popularity. We will definitely return!

    We love this place. It's well-known in the Grand Lake area and the go-to place for a special occasion, a romantic dinner, or just for a great meal. We feel valued as a customer every time we go in. We continue to frequent this place because the food is consistently delish, service spot-on, and the owners and staff always very welcoming. And the mushroom appetizer ain't bad either.

    The first thing we noted was that the restaurant is a bit pricey, even when compared to some of the best restaurants in Tulsa. For example, a 6 oz. filet mignon was in the neighborhood of $35-36. The second thing we noticed was that, even though a breadbasket with two hot rolls was brought to our table, there were no bread plates on which to place our bread. Finally, when my wife and I had each consumed the one bread roll allocated to us, we asked our server if we could have more bread. She returned a few minutes later with a breadbasket containing just one roll and a small container of butter. Given the menu prices the bread supply could have been more generous. However, our food was good and the bartender made an excellent Martini.

    My brother, sister-in-law, and I went to celebrate my brother's birthday. My brother had the prime rib; my sister-in-law had the shrimp; and I had the catfish. They were all delicious (after living in the South for several years, I am a catfish snob and I was really impressed). The servings were generous and the sides are equally good. Further the owners are friendly and the dinner was fun as well as tasty. Great experience all around.

    We enjoyed the best soup Saturday night at The Artichoke !! Each night Tuesday through Saturday a yummy soup is prepared. Saturday it was a creamy broccoli pepper jack !! Everyone in the restaurant was raving about it!! Fresh veggies from the garden were added to our salads! What a treat that local veggies and farm fresh eggs and grass fed beef ( for those who aren't veggie like me) are sold on Saturdays at The Artichoke at The Market along with pottery, jewelry, honey, goat soap, etc !! For the veggie people like me there are plenty of choices as well. The chef is a jewel!! The staff are friendly, and the atmosphere is lively!! Each of us enjoyed delicious entrees! Desert should never be skipped!!

    Three of us dined at The Artichoke during a girls' weekend at Grand Lake. My friends had the salmon and I had the Syrian salad with chicken. We all agreed that everything from wine to dessert was delicious and that we would make The Artichoke a part of all of our visits to the lake. Additionally, our server was knowledgable, prompt and very personable.

We also had the brocoli cheese soup which was puréed with carrots and onions. Very tasty! We shared the warm chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Its was amazing! The service was very friendly and we will definitely be back.
