    We were unfamiliar with the Brady District and restaurants located nearby. Luckily, we found The Tavern online, loved the small menu, and made reservations. The ambience, décor, service, and walkability to The Brady Theater were perfect. Our party of 6 had a wonderful experience, and will definitely be back.

    Always enjoy our food, drinks, and service at the Tavern. We got one of the great tables with a view of the Brady Arts District and got to enjoy some people watching. Make sure you try the bacon popcorn appetizer! Only room for improvement is perhaps they could add some acoustic tiles on the ceiling, as it can get a bit noisy.

    I was here recently to celebrate my Mom's birthday with a small group of friends. We were a bit rushed due to other plans we had for the evening, but the helpful staff and warm atmosphere made our experience memorable. Although it's a relatively casual atmosphere, the wait staff is very attentive and professional. I plan to come more often!

    The chef really knows what he/she is doing. The food and dessert and beer was all top quality, cooked correctly to my specs, and great tasting. Emily was our server and she is not only personable, but efficient and timely in the way she courteously takes care of you. We will be back often and everything about The Tavern-Tulsa is eagerly anticipated. Thank you folks at the Tavern for a great dining experience.

    There are many interesting and tasty choices on Brady Tavern's menu. We opted for the Sous Vide tenderloin that was very nice. They pair the main course with out of the ordinary sides, although you can always sub fries or mac 'n cheese if you are not an adventurous eater.

    I highly recommend this place. Third time here. Twice for dinner, once for brunch. Service was great every time. And I will go back. But the Strip I had...I was able to eat half of it. It was tough. It was hard to cut and some pieces I could not chew. I love steak. Even a bad steak is good; just not this time. I left more than half of it on the plate. We were on our way to a show, so I could not send it back. On the other hand, everything else was great. My wife's pork chops were fantastic. I hate to have to leave a review that makes a good resturant seem bad -- this one is good-- but I have to be honest

    Night out with 9 people for business. We had people from 3 other countries and they enjoyed the food immensely. The Tavern burger was great with the thin cut fries. That was the table favorite. Try the deviled egg Trifecta, the wasabi egg is delicious. Save room for dessert the chocolate torte is divine. It's really rich so you'll likely end up sharing it, but so worth it.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
