Hefner Grill Ratings and Reviews

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.
A nice surprise!
First, I rated the service and value a 5 because they gave us an incredible military discount of 50% off our food. 50%! This was a really nice surprise, and frankly, for those young military who couldn't normally afford to go to a nice restaurant like this, it makes it possible. We thank Heffner Grill for honoring the military in such a great way! The food was what I'd consider simple. I'm sure it depends on what you get as well. We started with the crab bisque. It was very good. We asked for bread with it, and their standard bread if a crispy garlic bread. Not what I would expect, but it no complaints. We also ordered a salad, which was a good portion and fresh. My husband and I ordered the blackened halibut special with rice and the mixed vegetables. The halibut was supposed to be 8 ounces and seemed smaller than that. We did not get a big portion. But it was cooked right, and the blackened seasoning wasn't too salty, which was nice. The rice was bland and didn't have a lot of flavor. The veggies were fresh and simple but good. The waitress, Mia, was super sweet and had a great personality and attitude. We did request a table outside to view the sunset. When we arrived, it was too windy, but we still wanted a nice view for the sunset. They put us at a table where the sunset was blocked by a large post and then a window frame. The only way we could see the sunset was by twisting our bodies in an uncomfortable way. That was a bummer. Overall, a pretty decent dining experience. When we got the bill with the huge discount, though, we were super impressed. Would go back.
Great Food and Great Service
Although this mainly is a seafood place, they have several other items that are excellent!! It is a great place for friends to meet and eat. The ultimate margarita is awesome!! Our waitress was very nice and efficient. I wish I could remember her name, but all I remember is that she had a 7 year old brother who always asked why she came home with food all over. Ha ha. I was there for a friends birthday who happened to be in town from Houston and she had a fantastic time. In addition, the young lady at the front too a few pics for us. Very friendly environment.
