In light of Dwight Beard's and Justin Pollard's recent arrests, do you plan to continue patronizing Ike's Downtown Pub and Eatery, even though it is not a conviction?

I have eaten there a few times, the food was good and it is close to where I work but for now I think I will drive a little further down the road or grab a burger from the other eating place which is close by.

Considering that neither of these men own any interest in Ike's, and that the cooks and staff shall remain...absolutely. No reason to put the hard working people that need their jobs out of work. Food is great, atmosphere is awesome. I'll be thee!

I understand that many will be unemployed, however, knowing these guys paychecks are finanacially helping them pay for teen sex - I got a problem with that. I don't patronize some business because I know owners that don't pay their child support. Just think how outraged I am, every paycheck, knowing my taxes help pay for all the idiots, and their actions, in DC. I will most likely no longer go to Ike's, knowing they are helping support the youth, and not in a good way.

Check out the licenses for the business online if you don't think they have an interest in that business.

KK2U wrote they aren't owners of that business but that isn't exactly true. Pollard has at least got the beer license in his name and both claimed to be self employed as owners of it. So, my answer is No - I'm not going in there anymore. I don't overlook or condone what happened. As far as many people being out of a job - we're not talking about a factory shutting down.

It's a nice place and has great food and a fine atmosphere. I'm going back. Okmulgee needs to keep it going.

YES! We will continue to support Ike's.
Their sex life has nothing to do with the restaurant.
We can't assume, from the facts as they are presented, that these men are pedophiles, or had any knowledge of their "date's" age.

Then I would have to think you are part of the problem and have similar tastes in young boys or you have a strong connection to these men.

i'll try to stay on topic:(1.)no, never ate there, but i heard the grub's good: alwayscan get my cholesteral from any # of low-paying restaurants there, which is mugtown's claim to fame (WHAT factories?)(2.) if the charges are legit, hoping for the best for all involved.(3.) let's get real: if it weren't for teen sex, okmulgee wouldn't be here--AT ALL!. oh, but, they couldn't procreate 5 generations of stagnatation.(4.)and, lastly, guess the chamber of commerce gotta scrape deeper in that pickle jar, or, whatever that saying is. peace, all!

Only if they have a new poll dancer to shake it over my hamburger.

Ike's has become one of the most exciting and successful businesses that Okmulgee has seen in a long time. Not only does it generate business for itself, it has brought in many people from out of town and even out of state....which can effect other businesses. It's a shame that it's become scandalized because of the irresponsibility and poor judgement of those who have a monetary interest in it. However, it doesn't and shouldn't effect the food, the service, and the effect that this business has on the city of Okmulgee. What these two guys are accused of is disgusting, but let's see how it plays out in the court system before you condemn one of the most successful business in Okmulgee.

The establishment has a good menu and friendly staff. I know what's been accused, but even Jesus ate with people that the locals dissaproved of at that time. I probably will be back.
