For farm-to-table fare in Bristow, head to the Beach House. Prior to the restaurant’s opening along Route 66 in 2013, the Beach family was raising Limousin cattle on a pasture just outside the city. Over time, the farm came to include fruits and vegetables, and the Beach family began offering their products at the Bristow Farmers Market. With a high demand for locally grown food, the next progression was into the restaurant business, and along came the Beach House. Located in a 100-year-old building that is said to have been visited by the King of Western Swing Bob Wills, the Beach House now serves up farmhouse food straight from a wood fired grill.
The extensive dinner menu includes appetizers, salads and sandwiches, but the real star of the show is the steak. Come hungry and dine on Oklahoma’s state meal - chicken fried steak - that has been tenderized, hand breaded and fried in grandma’s cast iron skillet. This Sooner State delicacy is served up with your choice of sides and a homemade roll. Save room for dessert, which is made fresh daily and ranges from peach cobbler to pecan pie.
