We took our OU student daughter here for dinner this past Saturday evening. As always, the food is great. I just wish they'd turn down the music or limit it to non-vocals, as it's so difficult to hear each other. We started off with the Pulled Chicken Nachos. Very tasty, although the chicken would be even better if many of... More

Went for date night. Service was very slow even though the place wasn't busy. Food was marginal. Meatloaf was good, but sauce was very tangy. Pot roast was very dry.

This place has a great location directly across from Campus. It has a great high-end pub feel and fortunately it has food to match. We had burgers, and salads and everything was tasty and made with ingredients you would only expect to see in a legit gastro pub. Good selection of beers and whiskeys top off a really nice experience.

Loved the nostalgic-trendy atmosphere. Delicious, quality ingredients, hardy comfort food, as well as salads, and more. Signature drinks, as well as good old staples. Scrumptious Shepherds pie was both elegant and rustic. Roast beef nachos were fantastic. Full service, great service. Comfortable dining areas divided up nicely. Great, old brick building. Can hardly wait to get back to try the... More

We went on UT/OU weekend, so it was pretty empty. They have a good drink selection. The garden mule is SO good. Excellently made. We ordered Brussels sprouts, which were a little hard for my liking. We also got the Gouda burger and pot roast. Both were great. The truffle mashed potatoes were amazing. I liked the atmosphere (except for... More

Dinner at Blackbird. Has their pot roast which is always a good choice. Good selection of craft beer as well as scotch. Nice ambience in restaurant. Sister restaurant Blu's is equally good.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. We ate here because another review said the pot roast sliders were worth the trip. She ordered them, and the review was absolutely right! I also got the meat loaf sliders and, personally, I liked them even more! Great food all around, good atmosphere, and the outdoor seating was very relaxing!

I've eaten here a number of times and always at least once per visit to campus. The place is on campus corner, one block from the north oval at OU. Moderately priced...four for a business meal was around $100...no alcohol included. I've had the meatloaf and the pork chops most recently. Both of the mains were excellent, however, the side...

First of all- don't miss out on seeing the university campus across the street- there are quite a few great pieces of architecture to take in just across the street! The restaurant is quite nice- as you walk in you will smell the slight aroma of smoke but it's from the smoking lounge on the third floor. The restaurant overall... More

This is a nice place, the food was not mind blowing but it was good. My husband ordered the meatloaf, which he was not too fond of. I ordered the pot roosts nachos they were pretty good. The artichoke/spinach pot stickers were very good!
