Tinker’s GlassHouse Bar and Grill is prominently located in the heart of historic Bartlesville. Built around 1910, the structure was originally a grocery store on the ground floor with a boarding house above. In 1941, ownership of the building passed to two brothers who operated Perkins Mill and Glass Works out of it for forty-some years. Christina and Patrick Tinker bought the building in 2016 and began renovations that would preserve the original brick structure. New space was added to the north and east sides to create an exciting new restaurant. During renovations, the Tinkers worked with architects and designers to build a space that honors “The Old” and celebrates “The New.”
Perfectly Smoked Meat
Tinker’s chefs prepare steaks, burgers, and fish on a wood-fired grill — burning only locally-sourced pecan wood that is split and stored in the Tinker’s barn. Brisket, pork shoulders, pork ribs, chicken, sausage, and cheeses are slow-smoked on site. All of the wood burning equipment at Tinker's GlassHouse was made to order at J&R Manufacturing Inc., in Mesquite, Texas, to create perfectly smoked meats that melt in your mouth.
