The Old Plantation Restaurant
Located in downtown Medicine Park, the Old Plantation Restaurant serves up plenty of charm alongside its legendary food. One step into this grand, three-story building will transport you back in time as you browse through the historic Medicine Park photos lining the wall. The original reception desk from when the restaurant was named the Grand Hotel remains, as well as a gift shop and the original Tap Room bar complete with beer, wine and spirits.
Originally built in 1910 and fully restored in 2008, the restaurant now features beautiful wood floors and an exposed industrial vent ceiling. Take a seat in a comfortable booth or chairs where you'll be served a variety of steaks, burgers and seafood. Start your meal off with an order of loaded fries, one pound of thick cut steak fries smothered with cheddar cheese and topped with bacon bits and chives. With so many choices, you may want to order the Old Plantation sampler, which comes with two egg rolls and four each of cheese sticks, buffalo wings, beer battered mushrooms and pickle-o's. For your entree, select a fresh steak cut, cooked over an open flame. All steak dinners are served with salad, buttery rolls and your choice of side.
Save room for delicious dessert like the homemade chocolate or coconut creme pie topped with whipped cream. Old Plantation Restaurant also offers a rotating cobbler of the day topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
