The absolute best fried fish, gumbo, jambalaya in this town. Buttermilk and sweet potato pie made by the owner's mom. It is fantastic.

From their website: "The Fish Market is North Tulsa's first seafood marketplace. ..."

White River was actually downtown before it moved out to North Sheridan, if memory serves.

EDIT: Hmm.  They opened in 2016 and they consider themselves first?  Guess it depends on your definition of North Tulsa.  Maybe north of Admiral/west of Harvard is what they're using?

I don't know but it's on some of the news clippings they have on their wall in the entrance.

According to the Tulsa World article announcing WR’s new location in Broken Arrow, they moved to the current location in 1965.

Calling The Fish Market “North Tulsa’s “first” seafood marketplace & restaurant” is a big whopper of a fish tale.

Would go to WR for lunch - 1967 through about 1970 - worked about 1/2 mile south of there...



Edit - about 1 1/2 mile south of there...

Not a lot there now.  A few things north of it over by Zebco, but that's about it over there now.

Yeah, it was pretty quiet last time I went up Sheridan... worked at Independence and Sheridan then.  Don's Restaurant area - you won't remember that one...  There was a Pure Milk Company 'store' on the northeast corner Sheridan/Independence, where a wheel/tire store is now.  They had a plant on 15th west of Sheridan, brick building.  Google shows a sign that says "Available". 

Ken's Pizza had just put in a place - first Ken's at 15th/Sheridan, on southeast corner, IIRC.  Wiki has it wrong.  Soon, they built new and move across street to southwest corner.  Mazzio's now.


Just south of first Ken's is a Vacuum place that started out as an 'upscale' hamburger joint - can't remember the name - by some family friends who were trying to do the Goldie's thing.  Only lasted a few years.  Just couldn't quite capture the magic that Goldie's had.  Really good burgers, though!!

That was Pizza Parlor....or something like that...  Ken opened it but didn't name it that.


For some reason, I keep wanting to say Pizza Hut, but that was different place completely...

Took my first wife on our first date there in '69. Ken was a school teacher working there, I was told, as a part time job. My memory is, it was called Hideaway Pizza or something similar. Really good too. So was the Library nearby. So named because you could always ask someone to meet you at the Library and it sounded like you were going to study instead of pool and beer.

Got curious, so did the standard first 'google search' - and found this.  I realize there is a ton of stuff about Ken and his restaurants around, it just seems a little sad there is so little on Wiki for a guy who made a very definite impact on the state!

The first Pizza Hut is on the campus of Wichita State University.  I’ll check with Ken’s daughter and see what the name of his first location was.  Hopefully she will know.  Grin
