Cattlemen's Steakhouse makes my list as one of the Top Restaurants Unique to OKC, and here's why.
Guide Review - An OKC Favorite
But not even considering that culinary treat, Cattlemen's Steakhouse is one of my favorite restaurants in the metro. Nicely flexible for casual dining, finer dining or in the separately ventilated space for smokers, Cattlemen's has some of the best steak around. There's much more to like than just that, though.
Walking in, you're quickly comforted by the wooden, deep brown decor. It's not a restaurant that requires formal wear; it's a dim hometown diner with a friendly staff and penciled drawings of cowboys of old upon the walls. Photos of Stockyard City's early days put you in a simpler time, without pretense and hungry for an Oklahoma steak.
Eat out front in the casual setting, in the slightly nicer leather booths of the fine dining back room, in the separately ventilated smoking room beyond that or with a party upstairs. Whatever your choice, you're in for some good food.
The steak is the stuff at Cattlemen's, but there are other choices as well. Catfish, chicken, spaghetti, chicken-fried steak and a nice collection of sandwiches all range anywhere from $12-$25 or so. On one occasion, I chose a dinner special of a 10 ounce rib-eye and fried shrimp for $19.99.
However you prefer your steak prepared, the wait staff is intent on you getting it exactly as you want it. So don't be surprised if the server hangs around a moment while you check. I'm a medium well man myself most of the time, and Cattlemen's steaks are always tender and delightfully flavorful.
One of the Best
Reasonably priced with a comfortable atmosphere, you won't find many with a negative thing to say about this place. The service is terrific and the food good enough to have you wanting to soon return. It's one of the best steaks, if not the best, you'll find in OKC.
