Across the street from the Bricktown Ballpark and right on the canal, Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse is fast becoming one of the top spots for great food. Steaks and seafood are the main menu items, but the restaurant features a wine list of over 150 selections. Surround yourself with memorabilia from the Mantle family personal collection as you dine.
Here's my full guide review of Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse.
Guide Review - Upscale Dining in Bricktown
Beautiful and contemporary, the interior is accented with deep cherry wood along some walls and brick along others. The restaurant is well-lit but still has a nice intimate feel, and of course there's the baseball memorabilia, from trophies to photos and more, tracing the life of its namesake.
Choose a table in the main dining room and have a white linen table setting. Head to the lounge for the live music and get a more relaxed atmosphere and a small, wood table for two. Either way, you'll get the same great food selection.
In addition, the entrée portions themselves are not exactly huge. Steaks and seafood dishes don't come with a side item such as baked potato, salad or vegetables. Those must be ordered off a separate "Á La Carte" portion of the menu. This makes for a situation in which your bill can be quite large, so be prepared.
All the typical cuts of steak are available, of course, but one of my favorites is the Pepper Steak, a 10 oz. cut in a peppercorn and cognac sauce. There are also some fantastic seafood selections available such as crab, sea bass and Ahi tuna. If you're going all out and have the room, grab the filet mignon and lobster tail together.
Beyond the Food
Mickey Mantle's meets that challenge with unique and often extraordinary live music every Friday and Saturday during the evening hours. Jazz and blues are frequent styles, from my experience, and you can catch some great local acts as well. Put it all together, and you have one of the better dining options in the metro.
