White River Fish Market & Seafood
An unassuming storefront operation tucked in an industrial district near Tulsa International Airport, White River Fish Market & Seafood comes as a wonderful surprise to the uninitiated. Among those who have raved about its offerings over the years are Gourmet magazine, National Public Radio and Bon Appetit magazine. The seafood is always fresh, flown in daily from across North and South America, and the selection is unmatched. Order it any way you want it – broiled, grilled, fried or smoked – and pick your own cut from the display case in front.
The fish comes in one of four ways at White River: broiled, grilled, fried or smoked. Each of these cooking methods are executed with great skill and the results are irresistible. Return often to see what unique fish or shellfish are crowding the display case. If you'd rather have a taste of Cajun flavor, White River also offers excellent versions of gumbo and red beans and rice. Tasty sides like cole slaw, hush puppies, pinto beans and spiced rice round out the menu at this great Tulsa spot.
