After 4 visits, I suppose I should submit a review...

Nice airy feel to the place, love sitting in the booths by the windows to people watch. Wish maybe they had a little more swag for sale

The beers are all tasty, never had a beer from this place that wasn't on form

Overall the service is good & friendly

Selection can vary, never had anything super-rare in here. Some times about half the beers are guests. Some lower ABV stuff only availible from in-house, due to our stupid laws here. For the most part, the guest beers are all top-notch. Not a fan of Crazy Mountain, today that was a wasted tap

The food is pretty darn good. Nothing mind-blowing, but flavorful pub food

Well worth a stop, but bring your wallet, the beers are over-priced . Today 2 adullts & 3 teens had brunch dishes, 5 beers, & 3 desserts & few kid drinks for $ 95.00 prior to taxes & tips

Prairie is one of my favorite breweries and I couldn't wait to visit the new Prairie Brewpub in downtown Tulsa. It is a sleek, impressive new facility with a cool wraparound bar centered around a foeder-cum-tap-dispenser.

When I visited a while ago they weren't brewing onsite yet, but their twenty taps had plenty of Prairie goodies including Bomb!, Birthday Bomb!, Foudre Weisse, Paradise, Prairie-Vous Francais, Ace and a couple of guest taps from Destihl, Left Hand, Green Flash and Nebraska (Vanilla Bean Fathead). Plenty of Prairie bottles too.

We got in past midnight, almost at last call (the bar closes at 1am); the bartender was super nice and attentive and the ambience was chill. They also sell Prairie merchandise and glassware. Definitely a must in Tulsa!

Have visited here twice, once right after it opened and again last week. The first time we were there was back after it first opened in July, vibe was kinda weird and service was sketchy. This past week I went there on a Tuesday afternoon right after they opened. Had some time to kill while waiting on my daughter so I went by to steal their wifi and watch a couple of movies on my tablet. Epic tap selection, had one Solera wild ale and their IPA on tap. Ended up spending most of the evening here and eating. The tap list is quite tight and offers a little bit of everything. That week they had Bomb deconstructed, which was basically the base with each variant on tap chili, coffee, vanilla & chocolate. The food was outstanding, my daughter got the Loosen your B.E.L.T and I got the fatty. Both were excellent. I would say the food is a bargain here, whereas the beer is probably a little more expensive than most places, but they serve beer in the proper glass and I have never detected any issues with the pours. The largest size pour you will get here is 12 oz.

Visited on a Monday evening at 7P.M.

Vibe was that of a trendy, hipster scene for the most part but not entirely. Plenty of people, older and casual drivers, were around so I never felt like this designed for just one kind of crowd specifically. There were locals around but nothing that would suggest they were getting too much attention compared to others who were there for the first time. The place also wasn't overly busy so it seemed like a nice place to be.

Quality of the place was great. It had just opened up in May and you could tell the place was new. The half circular bar with the large barrel in the middle used for dispensing craft beer was very much in line with other cool decor in the place. Loads of Prairie beer labels artwork on the walls. Just overall a very nice and clean place.

Service for me was quite good and nothing like some of the previous reviews describe. I sat at the half-circle bar and had two separate bartenders constantly checkin on me if I needed anything. My water, besides my beer, was constantly being filled and they were friendly enough to chat about the brewery when I had questions. No issues there.

Selection included approximately 20 beers on draft and maybe another dozen in bottles. My only complaint here is that I wish more of the 20 beers which were on draft were from Prairie. I'd say only 5-6 of six were. Some were Oskar Blues, Cascade, etc. Not necessarily bad, but I want to drink Prairie beers what I go to their brewpub.

Food menu had a medium amount of options, so not necessarily an extensive menu. I ordered the 'Loosen Your B.E.L.T.'' and that was pretty tasty. Fries were especially good and the meal showed up fast enough

Overall, I liked this place. I plan on visiting again on my next trip to Tulsa. Certainly, if you're in Tulsa and your a craft beer aficionado, I'd definitely make this a stop.

New facility, very clean and nice. It has a great brewpub vibe to it with the bar in the center. Everyone was extremely friendly and the employees gave good recommendations and encouraged samples. Very good selection of Prairie beers along with guest beers. No one can get bored with the beers, that's for sure. The food was good, but if I have one "complaint" it's that the food menu lacks a diversity of choices. It's new, so I hope the menu will expand as they move along.
Definitely a recommended stop if in Tulsa. The Prairie beers they had on tap were excellent choices.

Food was surprisingly decent. Not exactly what I was expecting from a brewpub. Catfish and ribs were both solid options and the prices weren't astronomical.

If you're coming in hoping a leisurely brewery experience hanging at the bar, trying samples and such, don't come during dinner hours. The place is mobbed. Young, hip crowd with loud interior and music to match.

Lots of beers to choose from, Prairie or otherwise. I'd probably enjoy coming here around 1PM on a Tuesday when I might have the place to myself and try a bunch of beers.

I met another BA here for dinner. The atmosphere was hectic and trendy, but this is the Brady/Blue Dome District.

The quality was okay, but nothing great. The food doesn't come close to measuring up to other local restaurants either. For dining, there are much better options nearby.

The beer selection was good; 20 taps. Almost all the beers were Prairie offerings, but that is to be expected. Being from the Tulsa area, I can drink Prairie anytime, so I chose a Surly Todd the Axe Man for my first beer.

The one area that colored my entire experience, and rating, was the service. I get that they are a hot new commodity in Tulsa, but the service was horrible. When I got to the bar, while waiting for my fellow BA to arrive, the guy I sat next to had the stopwatch on his phone going. I asked him why and he told me he was timing how long it would take for someone to notice him. The timer was already up to 12 minutes! Well, I'm not one to wait, so I called for several different bartenders. It took them another 4 minutes to get to us. That gets you no tip, period.

After the other BA got here, we moved to a table for dinner. The selection was VERY limited and the food was just okay, which was disappointing. Once again, the service was terrible. The server was almost nonexistent and never refilled the water, or even offered another beer. Really? I thought this was a BREW pub!

I may return here to join other BAs, when they come into town, but I doubt I'll return on my own volition.

☆☆☆EDIT - Well, update time. I went here again just before leaving for vacation. The experience was even worse than the first time I was here, and I didn't think that would be possible.

I suppose the vibe is great, if you fit a certain young, hipster appearance. For an old guy in a worn ballcap, you get ignored for five minutes, even when you speak directly to the bartender.

The food was worse than the first time, too. My appetizer showed up with the meal and a side was missing. The meal was dry and overcooked, and I had finished what I could stomach of it by the time the side arrived. The server was, once again, non-existent. When he did deem it necessary to come by my table, he was rude, curt, and just generally an ass. So, for the second time, no tip.

Asking for the manager gets you nowhere, either. Yes, I can see that you are busy. So what? Oh, and you've been open several months, so don't give me any CRAP about growing pains. I get the feeling that they'll be using that excuse for quite a while.

I was a little excited when it opened, and I really wanted to like this place, but I just can't. I don't think that I've ever had such abysmal service. The concept is fantastic, but the execution has been HORRIBLE! I seriously doubt that I'll ever come here again.
