Jenks jewel

New gastropub delights with fresh fare and great service.



Maryn’s Taphouse and Raw Bar opened in Jenks’ Riverwalk Crossing with a sleek bar serving an inspired menu and craft cocktails. The restaurant gets its name from owner Corey Crandall’s daughter.

Corey Crandall was happy serving beer and cocktails, fried green beans and burgers at George’s Pub, a neighborhood bar he owns in Jenks.

George’s had become a favorite spot for a group of commercial real estate agents and developers who brought up the idea about opening a new place, perhaps something more restaurant than bar.

Crandall took his time, fleshing out everything from the concept to the menu to the light fixtures before opening Maryn’s Taphouse and Raw Bar at Riverwalk Crossing in Jenks.

“I’ve traveled a lot and have been to restaurants all over,” Crandall says. “I knew what I wanted: an open-concept type of gastropub.”

That’s exactly what Maryn’s is. For those looking for a cool bar, Maryn’s has a big, sleek bar area serving craft cocktails, wine and 40 beers on tap. For date nights, there are more intimate tables and shareable entrées like tuna poke or a pepper-crusted ribeye. It’s also a place for families, with a kid’s menu that includes a macaroni and cheese so good you’ll be eating off your child’s plate.

Holy Water

The center of the menu also is the star of Maryn’s: a raw bar featuring oysters on the half shell, ceviche, shrimp cocktail and more.

We visited Maryn’s just a few weeks after it opened, and found great service and food good enough to pass around the table with friends.

Even if you normally skip the appetizers, it’s worth reconsidering at Maryn’s, which has a nice variety. We particularly liked the chorizo-stuffed olives ($8), which had a crisp coating and were served with a tasty dipping sauce. The bacon flight ($12) was a nice change from typical appetizers, and is a must for bacon lovers. Eight slices of thick-cut Greer Farms bacon, out of Pryor, came on a wooden slab. Slices included black-peppered, hickory-smoked, cinnamon-crusted and chocolate-covered.

Other appetizers and snacks, like Buffalo wings, jalapeño crab cakes, mussels and tamale balls, would be great bar food while having a drink and watching a game on the screens around the bar.

Sandwiches here are little culinary delights, including a stout-braised pork belly with chive vinaigrette and an Asian lager-braised short rib with grilled onions and house mayo. We liked the Maryn’s Burger, which comes with double patties made from both ground beef and ground short rib, served with bacon, Swiss cheese and mayo.

Crandall says one of the most popular things on the menu is the lobster roll ($19). He says lobster is flown in from Maine every two days for this sandwich, which can be served Connecticut-style (warm) or Maine-style (cold).

Lobster Roll

Maryn’s menu has a variety of entrées, including popular kitchen tacos with prime tenderloin, pico de gallo, radish and cilantro ($14), sesame-seared tuna with lobster and asparagus hash ($25), and mile-high rack of lamb ($30) served with a white bean purée and roasted carrots with mixed berry chutney.

The combination of bar food, like the hamburgers and po’ boys, combined with the lamb, steaks and short ribs gives Maryn’s that gastropub flare.

Among the selections in the raw bar, the crab claw ($16) is especially pretty with whole crab claws, avocado, mango, parsley and lemon served in a chilled glass. But it’s the oysters that are flying out of the kitchen. Crandall says Maryn’s sells 600-1,000 oysters a week.

Maryn’s Burger

Maryn’s also has a popular weekend brunch with well-prepared comfort food, like a peppered bacon eggs Benedict or biscuits and gravy and, of course, mimosas with fresh-squeezed orange juice.

A private room, with seating for up to 40, is booked most weekends. Crandall has plans for a patio and beer garden, to open in the spring, which would seat an additional 80.
