Located in the middle of Tulsa, Oklahoma in a small strip mall surrounded by warehouses
and light industry, White River Fish Market and Restaurant is not the place you
would expect gourmet Magazine or the Splendid Table Radio Show to feature, but they
did. In fact, the popularity of the Restaurant is a local legend.
The fish market is known for having the freshest fish around and its proximity to
the Tulsa International Airport makes that possible by allowing seafood to be flown
in from coastal cities all over both North and South America.
The restaurant specialized in
fresh seafood dishes and home-style recipes. With so many years of experience under their waterlogged belts,
it's no surprise that their recipes have been perfected.
O.T. Fallis, the founder and owner for almost half a century, opened White River
Fish Market in 1932 and added the restaurant a decade later. Garry Cozby,
a native Texan, bought the business in 1981, and continues the tradition of providing
a family-style restaurant where everyone feels at home. Today, White River
is still the place to go for an informal fish feast at great prices for everyone.
