Oscar's Gastropub brings this relaxed fine-dining experience to Tulsa. The pub's seasonal menu is eclectic, featuring both stick-to-your-ribs traditional fare like Smoke-Roasted Barbecue Chicken and Hanger Steak, as well as more unusual items like Chorizo Won-Tons and Fried Green Beans. The pub has 22 beers on tap and a menu of 30 wines.
