OK Corral Restaurant & Saloon

Leave Yer Shootin’ Irons at Home

This place is a hoot. When you drive up, it looks like the place has been here for a hundred years. Makes me wanna buy a horse and a big ten gallon hat. Then again, maybe I’ll just belly up to the bar for a beer.

The OK Corral was purchased recently by one of the top restaurateurs of the Twin Cities, Gus Khwice, owner of Dangerfields in Shakopee. While the OK Corral had become run down, Gus has invested a great deal of time and money to bring it back to its glory days.

The floors have been refinished, the lights have been refurbished, and the menu is now up to Gus’s high standards. However, the Old West décor is still the same. And that suits Gus just fine.

If you take a look at the menu, you’ll find it’s definitely a “meat-lovers” hangout. Take for instance the 10oz. Certified Black Angus Prime Rib, served after 4pm until it runs out. Just $11.99. And the 12oz. is $13.99. Prices like that are plumb crazy talk!

They also have BBQ ribs with their own unique 1919 Root Beer BBQ sauce. Other meats include rib eye, pepper steak, filet medallions, pork medallions, chicken, crab-stuffed tilapia and, of course, walleye fried or broiled. They also have seven different salads ranging from $2.99 to $8.49.

A quick look around when you first come in the door finds a large room with wooden floors, a lot of round tables and chairs, a big stone fireplace and country chandeliers. Off to your right is another big room, then the bar room, a small side room called the Wyatt that seats parties of 25-30 and a larger party room with its own bar and kitchen called the Tombstone that seats 225 people. And then outdoors to the patio with its own wood-fired barbeque.

The OK Corral also has a livery and corral and offers horse and wagon rides plus romantic carriage rides. Call (952) 492-6700 for times and availability. The OK Corral also has a huge Sunday Brunch and does banquets, and special events.

They are located at 20201 Johnson Memorial Drive (Hwy 169) in Jordan, MN 55352. They open 11am Tuesday thru Saturday. Sunday they open at 10am for brunch and they close everyday at 9pm. They are closed Monday.
