There’s no doubt Chef Tabb Singleton will reign as king for many years around Broken Bow Lake. Welcome home Chef!
The Moon Tower Bar and Grill, led by executive Chef Tabb Singleton, has opened to rave reviews near Beavers Bend State Park and Broken Bow Lake.
Singleton, a native of Southeastern Oklahoma and former executive chef in New Orleans, won the Food Network’s “Chopped” in 2012 and was also crowned champion of “Deep Fried Masters.”
The fame of winning these nationally televised shows skyrocketed his career. After a while, Singleton returned to the Broken Bow area stating “I love this area, it’s my home…this is the first place I want to get something started.” The Moon Tower Bar and Grill is now the talk of the town among locals and tourists. Singleton has dreams of opening restaurants in larger markets, but wants to keep a firm hold on the culinary scene near Broken Bow Lake. The Moon Tower Bar and Grill features indoor and outdoor dining and has a beautiful amphitheater for live music.
Singleton calls his menu “an open floor plan” and it’s constantly changing. “We do old classics and new stuff.” He was trained under famous chefs in the Bayou and boasted…”I throw in some Cajun!”
Fresh seafood is delivered several times weekly from his gulf coast connections and Chef Tabb is proud of the new flavors he’s creating in Beavers Bend. It ranges from upscale bar food to gourmet delicacies. The Ouachita Mountain region now features world-class dining.
Singleton attributes his success as a chef to “trial and error and the school of hard knocks.”
Here’s his advice for us that enjoy tinkering on the grill and smoker…
“I push people to experiment more than anything. If there’s a rub you see, try it. If you don’t think you have enough salt, add more salt. Don’t be afraid to experiment.”
Chef Tabb Singleton’s latest venture has been a huge hit with the guests at Mountain Vista Cabin. The Moon Tower Bar & Grill should be your first stop for cuisine when visiting Beavers Bend State Park. It’s located off Highway 259N, a couple of miles north of the Steven’s Gap Exit.
