Whoo-oo!: White Owl, a must go restaurant
Whoo-oo. That’s the sound of an owl or an extremely excited person. In this case, both answers are acceptable.
White Owl, located on Cherry Street, is an exceptional restaurant. Any person should be excited to eat there.
“It’s really chill over there. It’s hip and for young adults,” senior Phillip Perez said.
Right when we walked in, we were already given a table and settled into a comfortable environment.
“The music is fantastic. Old, familiar, and contemporary,” senior Genevieve Humphrey said.
Though most positive food reviews say that the food was good, trust me when I recommend the food they serve at White Owl. The food was home made and scrumptious. It tasted fresh and not microwaved.
“It was amazing. I had a grilled zucchini panini. It had mozzarella and pesto that really brought out the grilled taste. I also had fries that were delicious. They were not over or undercooked. They were thin and home made,” Humphrey said.
Senior Tommy Culver had a pesto pizza.
“It was extremely fresh. Everything about it was fresh. The crust was paper thin and had a good crunch to it. It had a great ratio of sauce to cheese. Though it seemed small, it was a good amount because I was full,” Culver said.
Perez enjoyed fish and chips.
“They were first class. Crispy and flaky on the outside and juicy on the inside,” Perez said.
More was done at the White Owl than just sitting at a table and eating food. During our visit to this restaurant, we were able to play pool while eating. We played while waiting for our food, and then our waitress just took our food to our game and told us we can eat while we play.
“It was a fun game of pool because we weren’t pressured,” Perez said.
Humphrey agrees with Perez that pool is a good idea at this restaurant.
“It was a lot of fun to play while we ate. Sometimes weird encounters of awkward silence go on during dinner. But playing pool was something to do,” Humphrey said.
The overall look of White Owl is different than most restaurants. We enjoyed our dinner in a loft.
“The loft was really cool. The bar was downstairs, but we ate in the restaurant upstairs next to the arcade games and billiards. It gave a hip atmosphere,” Culver said.
Perez was thoroughly impressed with the whole idea of the restaurant.
“It’s a very different environment. Thankfully, we all ordered finger food, so we could eat while we played,” Perez said.
The service at the White Owl is top notch.
“The service was good and really friendly. They were conscientious,” Culver said.
“They weren’t annoying by refilling our water all the time,” Perez said.
In addition to eating and playing pool, we were able to enjoy playing the few arcade games they provided. However, with food and games, money is always an issue.
“It’s a little pricey for a high school budget, but the option to play games made things more appealing,” Culver said.
I recommend the White Owl to everyone. Even for those that live in South Tulsa like I do, the drive is definitely worth it. The food is phenomenal for comfort food and the atmosphere is different and fun.
“It’s a great place to get away from stress and just relax,” Humphrey said.
