Hefner Grill Ratings and Reviews

Service was just alright, server didn't know much about the menu or the drinks. I ordered chicken and it came out completely raw, waited 30 minutes and then finally asked for the check- the manager didn't take anything off of our tab for the food or the wait. We finally asked if she could do something as it was my 30th birthday, she reluctantly gave us a small discount. Would not recommend.

I've eaten at Hefner Grill several times for special occasions. Last Friday 8/5 some friends were in town so we took them here. We really enjoyed the great views and live music. Service seemed a bit off. I didn't like our waitress too well. She never came around and asked would I like another margarita. It seemed the other guys refilling water, cleaning off plates did a better job.
The food however was great as usual. At our table enjoyed squash Rockefeller, pecan trout, 2 pork chops and a cedar plank salmon. We finished off with the 7 layer chocolate cake. Glad there were 4 people to share because that is RICH.
Definitely make a reservation. It can get a little noisy, but it still is TONS better than Chili's and the like. Also, I made a reservation for 7pm, but there was not a table immediately available. We had to wait about 8-10 minutes.

I have to eat gluten free food and have always had the best experience at Hefner Grill!! I LOVE the gluten free fish tacos!! We recently had a business dinner with 6 people in attendance; everyone loved their food. I overheard one of our guest tell the wait staff that he is a "steak" person and that was one of the best steaks that he had ever had.

Hefner Grill is one of our favorite places to eat, partly because of its beautiful & relaxing location. The food is always fresh and always tastes great. Service is usually always great as well. My husband and I had a date night this past weekend, and the overall experience was good. However, our service was much slower than normal, and our waiter was not near as observant and hardly checked on us the entire time we were there. That is something we are not used to at Hefner Grill. Hopefully it was due to him being new or just having an off night. Otherwise, our food was great and the atmosphere was great as always. We will continue to come back and enjoy one of our fave restaurants.

The food was wonderful. We all ate too much. Portions overly generous and so reasonable!! Our table was facing the lake Beautiful sunset and so peaceful watching the sailboats. We had my 86 year old mother, she So enjoyed the water since she is from Florida
The service was top notch. Wonderful to see such teamwork in a happy environment.

we always enjoy the food and service; the problem is, if you want to talk without yelling, the area we were in was not conducive for table talk; too much loud laughter and noise from other tables. For a special occasion, I would recommend several other spots vs Hefner Grill.

Food is generally good and offers a wide range for various paletts. However, I wish they would beef up their starters menu. We had a party of 5 one of whom cannot eat cheese. When you have drinks to start it is nice to have a starter that is shareable for the group. The only easy share dips are both good but cheese oriented. They used to have a quesadilla but rest or starters do not lend themselves to sharing. I still like the blackened tilapia that I have seen critizied by others but my brown butter sauce with scallops and shrimp was great. My daughter was overwhelmed by the special LARGE ribeye. Our whole party of five was pleased. The dinner wine was pleasant and our wait staff met every need and kept us served.

I have been to Hefner Grill on many occasions and always find it delicious and the service is usually spot on. That being said on this particular trip the service was below our expectation! The wait staff seemed to be rushing us through our entire meal! This occasion happened to be on our anniversary so it became annoying fast! The nicest service we recived was from the server that brought our food out from the kitchen he was very nice completimented us on the food selections we made and asked us if we needed any thing else which was more service than we received from our waiter the whole date. The meal was capped off by our waiter picking up my empty plate and grabbing my wife's plate mid-bite while she was still eating and had food left on her plate! Then stated without an apology oh I thought you were done with that! We have ate at Hefner grill many times in the past and will again. However not when it's important or we have guests with us I just can't take that chance!

We had brunch outside and it was a beautiful day, the service was good. The food, however, was mediocre at best. I had the Eggs Baltimore. The "crab cakes" were deep fried and probably from frozen. The eggs were way over done and so perfectly shaped it's impossible to believe they were actually poached that day. If it weren't for the patio on the lake, I would not eat there at all.

The service was very good, the food ok but a little pricey. Unfortunately, there was a very loud group near our table which put a damper on the evening. From what we could tell, management did nothing to ask them to dial it back. This occasion was for my wife's birthday. We also went here Mother's Day when the service was not good. All in all, I would recommend Hefner Grill but it's record with us has been uneven. I would avoid it on big events.

Hefner grill offers a laid back ambiance with a touch of class. Service was top notch. Our server Seth took outstanding care of us. Drinks were always full and table maintenance was neved ignored. We will be back.
Excellent service, excellent view, excellent food.
Call ahead for reservations, you are more likely to be seated up front with a beautiful view of Lake Hefner. The special was well presented and very flavorful. I particularly like that they use an interesting combination of flavors that is innovative and delicious. The portions are generous and I have rarely been able to make it to dessert, so I can not speak to that part of their menu. Salmon, coconut shrimp, and the salad special on Tuesdays and Thursdays are hits. All are worth a try for a very reasonable price. Truly an enjoyable weekday lunch experience I have repeated when I am in OKC.
Wonderful dining experience!
I booked our reservation for a party of five online using the Open Table app and really loved that convenience. I requested a window seat and they confirmed but gave no guarantee on the seating. When we arrived at the restaurant, our party of five was seated in the most perfect location, by the windows with a great view. We had the most amazing waiter named Richard, who met our every need. His suggestions on the menu were spot on and his attentiveness to our party was truly fantastic!!! We were so lucky to have him. And the manager also checked on us several times to make sure everything was ok. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to have such great customer service.
The food was delicious and faultlessly prepared. The grilled tuna was perfect, the swordfish was fresh and prepared wonderfully, the pork chop was amazing and tender and the pasta and crab salad were also amazing. We also shared delicious calamari and rich crab dip for our appetizers and ended with a slice of key lime pie, which we all agreed was the best we had ever tasted. Truly, this was a wonderful dining experience. Cannot wait to go again!

We went to the Hefner Grill to enjoy jazz artist Justin Echols. Unfortunately we couldn't be accommodated with a table in the bar, despite having a reservation. Other than the table location, it was an enjoyable meal. Service was a team effort and was quite good. The GM was helping out in the kitchen but came by and checked on us during our meal.

The View, Good, Waiter Live Piano Jazz and The Lemon Drop Martinis Were Absolutely Fabulous! Make A Point To Have Outside Dining To Enjoy The Water, Sailboats and Sunset. A Must Place For A Date, Double Date or A Good Friends Night Out For Dinner :-)
It was great! I drove 2 1/2 hrs., it was a surprise anniversary gift for my husband, he loves the water. The waitress very hospitable, the atmosphere was perfect for our occasion. Lakeside dining was romantic, we started with appetizers, our favorites spinach dip and calamari both tasty and seasoned to perfection. The main course was served hot and delicious as well. I have recommended Hefner Grill to my family for future dining.
One of the best restaurants in OKC
Hefner Grill is a great restaurant in OKC. It is consistent in quality and service, prices are fair and you can always expect to leave satisfied. It is our family "go to" place when we have out of town guests, just want a good meal or for special occasions.

We started with a waitress, then a waiter introduced himself. We received drinks from both, we ordered separately, and then they both disappeared. I had to go find a manager to get service. After that everything was ok.
