Corey Crandall OWNER
In 1996 our founder Corey started bussing tables at The Wild Fork in 1998 he moved to waiting tables at The Brook on Brookside. It was here that he was tossed behind the bar because he couldn’t stand the crowds. He has a touch of claustrophobia to say the least. It was here that he really learned off other well seasoned bartenders. In 2000 he left for Slow Duck Saloon which turned into The Gray Snail. After almost a decade there and saving his own tips he took the jump to a side of town where he knew no one and started George’s.
George’s was named after his favorite regular George Streetman who was massively influential in helping Corey keep his eye on the prize. After his passing in 2005 Corey kept his word and named his first Pub George’s. After a rough couple years opening George’s it started clicking with the local community that George’s was no ordinary bar it was a Public House that the community eventually embraced and has loved since. Forward to 2016 and Corey and his right hand Matthew Parks started coming up with a new idea. Gastropub with a southwestern/Maine feel. Maryn’s was named after his first born daughter and with the help of Matthew they finally opened in May of 2017. We are working extremely hard to get to where we want and be able to provide a unique experience in South Tulsa/Jenks but all of Tulsa and surrounding areas. Improving all the time and we believe it is showing. Thanks for all of the support we are growing like a weed and having a lot of fun along the way.
