    We enjoyed the wonderful Sunday evening special of fried chicken and catfish. We had a good table and it was pretty quiet for most of our meal. We usually go early on Sunday nights because after 6:30pm, it get very loud and hard to hear one another.

    The food was great. The service was excellent. I had the shredded chicken salad (I can't remember the exact name) and tomato soup. The salad was definitely entree size. I could have taken half of it home but it was so good I ate it all!

    I'm a snob about steak... More than anyone I've met. The filet was cooked just under medium-rare, but not quite rare (per my request). The flavor was superb. They obviously source great cuts of meat. I highly recommend this place.

    We enjoyed our brunch at The Tavern on Brady. Historically the service has been poor and the food average. The last 2-3 times we have gone back the service and the food have improved. Although I should preface that by saying we have not eaten in the main dinning area (where historically we have been disappointed), rather we have had our meals at the bar.

    Dinner at the Tavern is always a treat! The Tavern burger was perfect with the fries. The fish and chips were good. Fish might have been a bit under cooked. The innovative cocktails were very nice and different. Always fun to try new ones! A great place to start the Art Crawl!

  • Dinner before Brady Theatre show

    Dined on 9/28/2014
    We ate at the tavern before a show at the Brady Theatre. It's about 2 blocks from the theatre which was perfect. The food was great but the service was not. We rarely saw our waiter and were worrying we would be late to the show. This place seemed more like an upscale restaurant than a bar or gastropub. I would not mind eating there again but my expectations would be different.

    We have been to the Tavern on Brady four times and the food was always excellent and the service outstanding. The noise level is a bit much though, it is difficult to have a conversation. It would be nice if something could be done about that.

    Went to Sunday Brunch, out of the quiche for special. Entrance to restaurant was dirty, cigarette butts, sidewalk with broken glass and generally dirty. The ruG on the entrance inside restaurant was filled with debris tracked in from outside, bar floor not clean as well. If I owned this property I would make sure that the area inside and outside the restaurant was swept and cleaned up DAILY!

    I was a single diner who arrived about 10 pm on a Saturday. It was Restaurant week so I ordered on a price fix menu. First I was treated very well and as a single diner this is not always the case. Second, the food was very good but thee was a noticeable wait time between courses but the cheesecake bread pudding was worth the weight. I might not recommend The Tavern for pre-theater dining if this is the usual case. But i would recommend it for the food, decor and service.

    The cheesecake bread pudding was worth the trip! Amazing! The entire meal was very good and sevice was outstanding. My only complaint was that the tables were very small and it was very loud - hard to have a romantic date when you are yelling!

    First time back in Tulsa after a few years away and wow; the Brady District is coming alive. And, it was a bacon themed night at the Tavern. Bacon Popcorn and a Bacon-infused Old Fashioned to kick off the evening and their Beef-Brisket Burger with a pile of skinny fries to finish. Simply delicious. Kudos all around.

    My family loves The Tavern, especially for the special Sunday night Chef's Fried Chicken dinner. We take our 6 year old and 3 year old sons, who also love the place. It's a not a "family restaurant" by any means, but they treat little ones very nicely. The service is always top notch. You must save room for dessert somehow... they only offer 4-5 desserts at any given time, but they are always wonderful.

    Food & wait staff were wonderful. The ability to visit is tough when the restaurant is busy... And Saturday night it was busy. The noise is probably fun for large groups. We had a table for 4, and were distracted by the noise. We probably won't return on weekends unless we want that party-hardy atmosphere.

    The Tavern was fantastic all around!! Our bartender for pre dinner drinks was knowledgable & helpful!! We loved the " Bells & Whistle" drink! Our waiter was great and the food was amazing! We both had the filet & it was cooked perfectly to our request! It was sooo tender you didn't really need a knife. Atmosphere was cool, laid back & subtle. I couldn't have been to a better place for our anniversary!

    My wife and I had a reservation for 4:45 before a concert on a Sunday. When we arrive there is one couple dining and a couple people at the bar. We were seated right next to the only couple dining. Yes, they were finishing up their meal, but stayed a little longer. We place our order and then a group of 4 comes in and they are seated right next to us on the other side. The place is not small and there are plenty of tables. Not sure the reasoning of stacking people right next to each other and not spacing them out. The food was okay. The wasabi deviled eggs were excellent.

    Based on previous reviews I guess I was expecting more. The service was ok. The deviled eggs were amazing. But the pork chop was dry and lacking flavor. The overall restaurant was nice but was not worth the price. Our server could have been more attentive but it was the fourth of July so maybe just came in on an off day.

    We had a great experience at Tavern. We reserved our table on our way to the restaurant. The Tacern has complimentary valet parking so we didn't have to worry about finding parking. We walked in the restaurant and the hostess took us straight to our table. The restaurant clearly had a wait because there were several other couples standing around the front entrance. It was awesome being able to skip the wait line. The good was awesome. I had the Tavern Burger which is hands-down one of the best in Tulsa and my wife had the pesto prima Vera which she loved. For an appetizer we tried the deviled egg trifecta and would get again for sure. Overall great dining experience!
