The Silver Spoon Brings a Touch of Rustic Class to Lawton’s Downtown

The Silver Spoon was a successful business in the Walters area for five years before moving to downtown Lawton and its current location. Mainly a catering business before moving into town, the catering business was well established and very successful, it’s just that the owner, Vera Oldham, thought it was time to share her delicacies with a bigger population.

Vera serves all of her delicious goodies on Longaberger dishes. That may not mean much if you don’t know about Longaberger, but for those of us in the know, it’s a very nice touch. Don’t let the fact that I’ve called the menu items goodies give you any idea that this isn’t a great place to eat. All of the items that I’ve had the pleasure of sampling have been delicious. Imagine a sidewalk bistro with a touch of chic elegance, plated and served with country charm. Along with the sandwiches, Panini’s, soups, and salads – to say nothing of the decadent desserts – each even has its own special dinner item. The most recent evening that I was there, the special was a baked pecan-crusted chicken breast served over a salad, which included cherub tomatoes and feta cheese, served with Italian green beans infused with apple-wood smoked bacon and wild rice with sun-dried cherries. To round out the meal, there is a fresh-baked dinner roll that one patron described as “just like grandma used to make.”

After 5:00 p.m., there is a selection of appetizers that are specially prepared for the bar’s happy hour. My favorite is the Avocado-Black Bean Salsa served with lightly-salted corn chips. The salsa is prepared with a coarsely chopped avocado mixed with diced tomatoes and black beans with just a light bite of spiciness. By the way, I use the word appetizer loosely. I had the Salsa and Chips for my dinner and was pleasantly satisfied.

Periodically, The Silver Spoon plays host to local entertainment, such as Amanda Kidd and Company – a local folk/pop/rock/cover band. On a more regular basis, you can find Darren Findley (guitarist) on Wednesdays, Travis Thomas (guitarist) on Thursdays and the Jason Dozier Experience (jazz ensemble) on Fridays. Saturday is being set aside for local bands and soloists to feature their talents on a rotating basis. If you are a local artist who would like to be featured on an upcoming Saturday, please contact Jan Kissick at 580-357-6800.

    A wonderful place, and former home to Johnson’s Creamery. I love the large wooden door inside with the huge silver hinges. And the decor is so appealing. I took a tour throughout and it was beautiful. They have done a great job. I wish there was room for a few tables outside for those really nice evenings we sometimes have in Lawton. Located at SW 6th and C (NE Corner). And they have a FB site that details specials.
