“Sunset on the Arkansas River near down Tulsa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Casual dining on the Arkansa riverfront, we ate their Detox sandwich on wheat berry bread-very good and loaded cheese fries - cheddar-jack cheese, bacon - more and had a cup of their black bean and chicken soup. It was all very good.

We ate out on the deck to watch the sunset, it was noisy busy, family and walkers passing-by-stop in and give the dogs a drink kind of place.

They had fans and misters to keep diners as cool as possible, but what can you in 90+ degree weather? There servers all stayed friendly and energetic- a lot more than energetic than we felt in he heat. It is the only place on the riverfront, just would you'd expect from a busy, summer place.

“Terrible Manager, Sub-par food, apologetic wait staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

It was a slow night so no reason. Told us our food got messed up and had to redo. No problem, until they served one hot meal and one cold. Not kinda cold, but total mush! Terrible! Asked waitress about it and they talked to the manager,

The manager did not care enough to even look at us! Waitress said they would comp the plate but why did the Manager not investigate what happened?!?!? Don't you think she should have at least gone into the kitchen as talked to someone? Nope, not her. Just turned her back and stood up front. Crazy!! Why didn't she take 2 mins to come explain? Something like "Oh wow, I am sorry, this isn't normal at all, please let me fix this for you......" She could absolutely care less about the food she is serving!

I'll never be back!!! Not because of the mistake, but because there are lots of choices to spend my money with owners that give a crap about their customers. Clearly this owner has checked out!

“Good food and great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Little high priced but its a great spot right on the river. I would like to go back in the summer when you can sit out on that nice deck. This place didn't exist when I moved away 7 yrs ago. There should be more places like this to eat on the river.

“Great Family place, but had to tackle the waitress”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

We met extended family here for dinner. The place work for the adults and the kids (6 to 17 y/o). Good burgers. Good distractions for the younger kids when the older folks were finishing their meals. Wait staff was slow! Would have rated this better but we had to hunt down our waitress to order.

“nice view, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I eat at the Blue Rose Cafe regularly, especially on pretty days. Sit on the back patio when you can. It overlooks the Arkansas River. The food is basic American. Lots of burgers, chicken and salads. I often eat the spinach salad with blackened chicken and it's delicious. Great beer selection.
