The Rock House
For more than 30 years, Sam and Tami Balzanna dreamed of someday owning and operating their own restaurant. After years of planning and hard work, that dream came true in April 2012 with the opening of The Rock House in Talihina. Stop in for steaks, crab cakes and more delectable options.
Located four miles north of Talihina, the restaurant is housed in a remodeled rock home situated nearly dead center on the Balzannas' 283-acre rural property. Patrons seated at nearly every table in The Rock House are rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the Kiamichi Mountain Range, the Potato Hills and impressive Buffalo Mountain. The family's horses graze contentedly on green grass in pastures on all sides of the restaurant. The occasional deer or turkey is regularly spotted by restaurant guests.
