OKG7 places to watch the game

Every week, we give you seven OKC-area restaurants to explore.

Jenn Scott August 29th, 2012

Do you have home-game tickets this college football season? If you don’t, you’ll need somewhere to get your fill of the gridiron. So find a big screen and some food, and have as much fun as the people in the stadium.

Louie’s Grill & Bar

301 W. Boyd, Norman


Hal Smith Restaurant Group has a little something for everyone. In this case, it’s big screens and Golden Tee, a popular golfing arcade game, as well as delicious pub food with a gourmet twist — all at prices that won’t break your pocketbook. Enjoy a brew on the patio, then move indoors when it’s game time.

Republic Gastropub

5830 N. Classen Blvd.


The first thing you’re likely to notice is the wall of beer bottles. A wide selection of beers isn’t the only thing this upscale pub has to offer. Enjoy crave-worthy food, plenty of TVs displaying the game — whether home or away — and a killer patio that boasts a glass wall, so even if you’re outside, you’ll still have a view of the screens.

Belle Isle Brewery

1900 Northwest Expressway


The brewery’s specials on beer are enough to draw anyone back. Live music is upstairs; during football season, downstairs is game-watchers’ heaven. Pub food, beer and screens help keep you in the game loop. If you can stand to be away from the TV for a little while, the patio provides a nice escape from the noise. 

Upper Crust Wood Fired Pizza

5860 N. Classen Blvd.


Whether you like sports or not, the fire-roasted pie sauce here is a game changer.

Order a pizza and a cocktail and enjoy the game as well as the sleek design that’s representative of Classen Curve. There’s plenty of bar seating, as well as booths with TV views.

Deep Deuce Grill

307 N.E. Second


Not only does it have a terrific patio, perfect for autumn weather, but the grill also sets up TVs outside when football season kicks off. So whether you’re eating or drinking, stay outside and enjoy the cooler breezes while cheering on your team.

Dan McGuinness Pub

3005 S. Broadway, Edmond


This Irish pub is equipped for all things celebratory. Smithwick’s and Guinness on tap pair nicely with a basket of fried pickles or buffalo chicken skewers. Like it on Facebook for updates on food and drink specials and game coverage.

Thunder Roadhouse Cafe

900 W. Memorial


Currently under construction for expansion, this cafe is still open for business.

It’s adding even more TVs for football and Thunder seasons. Enjoy beer and burgers, as well as the daily special, in the original part of the restaurant. Like the cafe on Facebook for updates on renovation and game-day fun!
