    Friend and I got to together for dinner. Our meals were great. We both had the Wedge Salad to start. Lettuce was crisp and fresh. Hard boiled eggs and crunchy fresh bacon bits highlighted the salad. My friend had the Cajun Shrimp Pasta. She stated that it was excellent. I had the Bang Bang Salmon which was Amazing. The Jasmine rice had a delicious flavor. Our server was nice and appropriately checked on us through the meal. The only opportunity for improvement would be for a little more time between salad and meal. We were about half way through our salads when our entrees arrived to the table. Just felt a a bit rushed. Other than that, an excellent experience. Will definitely be back again!!

    I went back to Worthington Tavern for the OKC Smash Burger with Bacon with Fries. That is one of the best burgers I have ever had. I understand why it is an Oklahoma smash burger with lots of onions. Sandy was great in taking care of my friend and myself. I am a huge sucker for blueberries and for dessert we shared the Blueberry Coffee Cake that was divine and yummy. I am having that leftover Blueberry Coffee Cake on Easter morning. 🫐🍔😋

    They ignored my Open Table reservation and didn’t award my Dining Points. I had to contact Open Table and spend valuable time proving to them that I did infact keep my reservation.

    All of the food we had was absolutely delicious!! The blueberry coffee cake melts in your mouth. I'm not even a coffee cake person, but theirs was totally different and very flavorful. The chicken and waffles was the bomb with the hot honey, along with the bbq dusting on the chicken. SLAPPED!! The Maple Waffle cider topped off all the flavors with the chicken and waffles. My son had the breakfast burrito and said it was delicious. Will definitely be going back to try out dinner food.

    Everything was fabulous! Our server, Bailey, was energetic and on top of everything, even explaining the flaming drink in a peacock mug! The baby greens salad and Mediterranean pasta with salmon was delectable. As was the burger and seasonal salad with shrimp. The $7/glass wine during happy hour hit the spot!

    Food is amazing. Service was great. It is extremely loud, impossible to hold a conversation. There were two of us and we were seated at a tiny table set right in the middle of the patio room. It was a really good meal but not a great dining experience.

    Overall it was a wonderful experience. The only thing that brought it down a bit was The Valentines menu didn’t specify say that the appetizers and dessert was not for one but for two. Even our server, through no fault of hers knew. Also the drink menu hadn’t been updated recently and did not have the newest specialty cocktails and was still showing some from back at Christmas time. But we will definitely be back due to the level of quality of the food and the service.

    Picannte al a vodka with chicken blackened is really good. Order with extra sauce for the wings if you get them. The ,Just Duckie, drink you get to take a little rubber duckie home.
