Everything was perfect. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. Food was beautifully plated and perfectly prepared. Topping off our experience, we were sent home with a large portion of delicious coffee cake — even after we ordered dessert! We had not been to Bodean in several years and left wondering why it took us so long to return. We are adding Bodean to our favorites list.

First visit here and had my heart set on the lobster tail when I saw the special was soft shell crab, which is one of my most favorite things to eat and I always order it when on a menu. It was dipped in buttermilk, dredged in flour and fried, served atop roasted asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes.

We went to Bobeans to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The food was great, however, I would like to see a broader menu. Perhaps the day after Mother’s Day was a bad time to go. The service was impeccable and really made the evening grand.

We have been dining at Bodean’s over 30 years. Before we moved to Tulsa it was always a must when visiting and now that we live here it is frequently our special occasion destination. The food is excellent with fresh seafood flown in regularly. Very nice wine list, great appetizers, and excellent service. The oysters are always fresh tasting and quite a variety to choose from: PEI, Washington, and gulf. The preparations are excellent and presentation is as well.

Loved this place. Went for lunch, which was first rate. I bet dinner would be awesome. Our server, Stephanie, was the best, and made a great recommendation for wine. The shrimp lobster bisque was better than I could have expected. I'll return when I come back to Tulsa. A definite stop in an unexpected venue.

WOW!!!

The entire experience from start to finish has never failed to exceed the expectations of even the most seasoned foodies. I use Bodean for all of my occasions, business, personal, groups, and even for a wind down spot for myself after a long day. I am always excited to host a dinner or recommend this local gem to all of my friends and family that are traveling in from across the states and abroad. There is nothing more reassuring to know the level of service and quality of ingredients that goes into each visit. The last few stops into Bodean we have had the pleasure Michelle spearheading our dinning experience. I must say she is such a delight, and definitely adds to the atmosphere that exemplifies what fine dinning is all about. Thanks to Jeramy and his team for always delivering such exceptional service and cuisine. You all definitely represent Oklahoma well.

We had some family come in from out of town & we decided to bring them here because they love good fish. The waitress was excellent & was able to answer any questions. She was also very knowledgeable in regards to the wine list. The food was outstanding. It was a very enjoyable & memorable evening!

Great food but no attention to detail this particular evening. That has not been our experience in the past. Furnishings are extremely worn. One of our favorite restaurants and can’t find better seafood in Tulsa however it is starting to lose its charm.

I did not know that there was daily menus. I also did not know that the lunch menu, and dinner menu differ vastly. For a Cajun flair, stop in for lunch. For a fine dining experience, stop in for dinner. Neither will disappoint.

Impeccable seafood as always and top-notch seafood and service!! Long crab legs and sea bass are our all time favorites. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and able to answer questions regarding preparation. Will definitely be back. Only suggestion, maybe update the look/decor. It's looked the same way for over the past 15 years. Would love a more modern/cozy look.
