Sunday, I drove over to just beyond Wagoner to the Canebrake resort to have brunch at the Canebrake Kitchen.  This is a new property still in the beginnings of developement.  A beautiful place on the shores of Lake Ft Gibson.  The restaurant, The Canebrake Kitchen is located in the main building, that includes a yoga barn, a retail shop, and some meeting rooms.  There are plans to build a swimming pool and spa facilities adjacent to this.  There are also some cottages being built for overnight guests.  

I was there for brunch.  It was probably one of the best brunches I have had in Oklahoma.  There were 3 buffet stations, all small, one had meats including applewood smoked bacon, sausage links and smoked beef roast (delicious and juicy), creamy carolina grits, home fries, biscuits and some of the best sausage gravy I have had since I moved to Oklahoma (it didn't remind me of the paste that most places call gravy) and the sausage in it was plentiful and had a pleasant black pepper bite.  There were a  couple of salads also.  The next station was a dessert station with all homemade desserts.  The last station was house smoked salmon at the bar into the kitchen where you ordered your eggs, omeletes or benedicts made to order and delivered to your seat.  The house coffee is also excellent.  It was $16 but well worth it considering the quality of the food.  The service was smooth and nonintrusive.  

Here is the web site, http://www.thecanebrake.com/,  I will be going back to check out the dinner menu which is included on the site.  So far, imho, this is one of the better dining rooms in the entire state.

Is a Yoga barn where they keep the Yogas?

I didn't see any yoga bears while I was there but it might just of been my timing.  

As to distance, it is about 45+/- miles from Utica Square to the parking lot at Canebrake.  So if your in Broken Arrow, probably in the neighborhood of 60 miles round trip.

I am sold on this place!  Called to chat a little about Yoga and their Sunday brunch.  They were very friendly (gentleman I spoke with) and answered all my questions.

Again, thanks for posting this info.  We need a place like this in Oklahoma, and certainly, closer to Tulsa[Smiley]

How small is "small?"   Just curious. We plan to go out there next week Sunday.

The only buffets we've tried (brunch) were at Golden Corral (not the best) a few hotels in town (not bad), and Cherokeen Casino(terrible).  Tons of food, but quality was non-existent.

I was there again yesterday for brunch.  There were like 5 chafing dishes with 8 hot items and 4 salads.   The smoked beef brisket is delicious.   The house smoked salmon was a bit dry this week but that was okay.  It was very busy this week so I would suggest making a reservation.  The number is on their website.

Instead of the eggs benedict, this week I had an omlette, fresh herb and brie, delicious, with a ramekin of fresh tomato salsa.  Although the western omelette he made right before mine looked great also.

We are planning on going on the 4th.  I called Thurs to get a reservation, the gentleman said it wouldn't be necessary for two.  I mentioned now that the cat's out of the bag and with the autumn leaves turning, they might be slammed.  He advised I call back first of next week.

We may go this Sunday. Will report back on what I thought.  Should we dress fancy for brunch or casual?  Anywhere to walk afterwards?

Casual dress, you can do jeans, I just wouldn't do a tank top and flip flops.

I'm a dress up kinda gal anyway.  Was wondering how dressed up or down to be, especially with the kids.

THere have been lots of people coming in from church for brunch.  So you probably will not be overdressed.

We did make reservations.  I am hoping that my son wouldn't try to over eat.  He has a tendency to think "buffet = overstuffed"[Cheesy]
