I've tried "the Bistro" a few times because everyone raves about it, but I'm just not impressed. It's out of the way and overpriced. The service is lacking. I really want to like this place and support a local business, but I'd rather go to...More

This restaurant has excellent service. The garlic bread (sourdough with big soft chunks of garlic) is delicious, particularly if warmed up. They also have fun sweet treats and sodas. I've not had delicious food here in a while, but if you're craving a wrap or...More

Thank you for the review and I apologize for your disappointment. We still make our soup fresh daily with the same ingredients and recipes (no water, only vegetable or chicken broth). I will be checking into the potato soup being over cooked. Our egg salad...More

I drive through McAlester all the time and had never seen this establishment. Well now I know why. It is North of downtown on Main St. It is worth the trip however. You have to come in at lunch. They are only open from 11:00...More

The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The menu has items not commonly found in small restaurants and varies from day to day.

The lunch special today was Fish Tacos and a side. We both chose the spinach soup. Excellent flavor combo. The spinach soup was by far one of the best tasting soups I've had. The subtle hint of perhaps cheese made this such an amazing touch....More
