Owner Garry Cozby bought the restaurant from O.T. Fallis in 1981 and has kept the original concept and tradition alive.
Cozby explained that the central location of Tulsa allows the company to fly in fish from coastal regions, and also attracts a wide range of patrons.
“It would probably be the last location anybody would pick,” Cozby said. “It’s not Restaurant Row, but actually, for me, it’s great.
“Because of all the industry around here we have a huge lunch business, and then at night, we’re just so well known, been here so long that people just come from all over the city too."
Cozby added that he also has been considering opening another location, possibly in Oklahoma City, South Tulsa, Broken Arrow, or out of state.
“I’ve always kind of wanted to put in another location, and I might, but I wouldn’t want to move from this spot for sure,” he said.
“When I bought it, I’ve just enjoyed it for 28 years, but I might consider putting in another location.”
