FlyingTee opened in Jenks on June 7. For everyone who has visited the golf entertainment facility, they know that it is for more people than just golf enthusiasts.
The entertainment venue is located at the northern end of Riverwalk Crossing, with, in addition to golf, three restaurant offerings, one on each floor, of its building.

On the first floor is its sports bar, offering traditional American sports bar fare with most dishes falling into the $8-15 range.

Sitting on the second floor is an upscale dining option Ironwood, with prices a slight step up but still approachable for most. Flite is located on the top floor, with its focus on group items, meant for sharing, with food flight choices.

For those who are not interested in playing golf, they can still choose a table or booth that offers an expansive view of the driving range to the north, providing a nice dining change from the norm.

Or, in the sports bar, patrons can focus their attention on one of the dozens of televisions located throughout the restaurant, including one found in each booth, for diners’ individual use.

My party decided to spend our first visit in the sports bar for lunch, securing a booth with a pleasant view of the driving range.

Menu items include nachos, chicken wings, cheese fries, sliders and chicken quesadillas among its appetizer options as well as salads, pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, and entree choices, including Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Flat Iron Steak and Chicken Alfredo.

Our waitress commented early on in our meal that the restaurant put its own, unique spin on many of the traditional dishes on the menu. And, with the majority of our dishes, we found that she was correct.

For our entrees, we selected the Ribs and Brisket, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, and Fish and Chips.

The Ribs and Brisket come with two sides: potato salad and okra. We asked to substitute okra for cole slaw, but as a courtesy, they brought us all three sides, which was a nice surprise.

The okra was the traditional fried okra but a bit stringy in spots, which is why I tend to avoid fried okra in general. The coleslaw and potato salad tied for my favorite in the sides category. The coleslaw had an unexpected spiciness and the potato salad a unique tangy flavor.

The Buffalo Chicken Pizza comes topped with grilled buffalo chicken, bleu cheese, cheddar, mozzarella and buffalo sauce. The bleu cheese is prominent, which I enjoyed, as a major bleu cheese fan. The pizza was very moist with some spice lingering after each bite. The pizza is not overly large, possibly enough for two people to share, depending on the size of their appetites.

The Fish and Chips proved to be the most underwhelming of our dishes. It came with moderately-sized pieces of breaded fish. I would have preferred a bit more fish inside of the breading. The tarter sauce that accompanied the fish was very fresh with prominent cucumber bits, but for hard core fish and chips lovers, you will probably find yourself craving the traditional tarter sauce.

For dessert, we sprung for the carrot cake that, instead of being prepared as a slice of pie, came out like a cookie sandwich with icing spread in between the layers. The flavors were pleasant, but again, the traditional flavors were not quite as present as one would expect of carrot cake, with its accompanying sauce having a bit too much orange flavor.

FlyingTee is open Sunday-Wednesday 9 a.m.-midnight and Thursday-Saturday 9 a.m.-1 a.m.
