Cattlemen's Restaurant Review: Cattlemen's rich and colorful history dates back to 1910, when it was one of the few establishments open past sundown. During prohibition, it was renowned for its home-brewed liquid delights, and it also lays claim to being Oklahoma City's oldest continuously operating restaurant. Today, Cattlemen’s plays host to hungry cowboys and ranchers, tourists and famous names like President George H. W. Bush and Reba McEntire. The restaurant has employed much of the same staff for decades, and its longevity has produced a predictable quality that's remained consistent for a century. Patrons are encouraged to start their meal with lamb fries, and the menu's Southern comfort food, including warm buttered rolls, creamy mashed potatoes, beer-battered onion rings, and coconut cream pie, all scratch-made. Of course, Cattlemen’s is known for its steaks, hand-cut in the restaurant's own butcher shop, then seared over a hot charcoal flame to your specification. In addition, locals enjoy the expansive and hearty country breakfast, which can include hot cakes, Texas toast sandwiches, calf brains and eggs, or a whole T-bone steak. It all adds up to a uniquely Oklahoma dining experience.
