TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two months after someone set fire to the Silver Flame, the well known Tulsa restaurant is back in business. 

Doors opened for lunch Monday and it was already drawing a crowd when a News On 6 crew stopped by. 

Investigators say someone intentionally started a fire on the second-floor of the restaurant and left a cryptic message – "A Lover Makes A Liar."

The owner tells The News On 6 the investigation is still ongoing and he's cooperating.

"He's always had good food, and I've been coming here for a lot of years and I'm still here," another customer said.

"Oh, I'm very happy to be back. It's like my baby. You know, I'm glad I got it back," said Abdul Alhlou, Silver Flame owner.

The Silver Flame has been open for the past 23 years.
