It was a great experience. Wyatt was very friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. Pleasant. I would be returning
Wonderful customer service and nice water view! Food was good.
The Hefner Grill was a good choice for dinner with an old friend. I had several people recommend it to me and I enjoyed the location next to the lake. I started with a classic Manhattan which made a great start to the meal and it looked great!news We the Crab cakes and the Teriyaki Mahi with seasonal veggies. The cakes we're tasty and seasoned just right. The Teriyaki Mahi was perfectly cooked and had the right mixture of Asian slaw to offset the Teriyaki and complimented the fish just right. No room for dessert, but the selection looked great! Colt was our server and he did a great job!
calamari came out quick, then long wait (about 30+ min) and after asking 3 waiters we finally got the entrees, , the gumbo that was suppose to come as an appetizer didn't come out until we asked 2 more waiters. Wouldn't reccommend based on service.
Went on Mother's Day. First time visiting this restaurant. Worth the drive and the prices are good. The food was great and the view of the water was perfect.
Went to brunch for Mother's Day. The view was beautiful and the food was delicious. We have been there several times and the wait staff is always attentive. Love the evening view when the sun sets. A great place to bring friends when they visit from out of town.
Hefner Grill for Mother's day... where do I begin? The security people redirected traffic away from the parking lot and made us go to the overflow lot. There was no shuttle so I was forced to walk the entire way (it is a long walk on a windy day in a skirt and high heels carrying a large gift bag!)..... there was a ton of parking in the lot - they just were not letting people in to park. Hugely annoying. The hostesses were kurt and rude to everyone. Our server Susan was a gem and we loved her. The food was really so so - the brunch egg dishes were bleh. Normally, this place is great. I will give them a pass on the food since it was Mother's day but I will always remember that I had to walk for 20 minutes to get to the restaurant because of the security guards out directing traffic. Shame on them for that. Probably not Hefner Grill's fault but alas...
The chaos of a shuttle ride was the only detractor from this otherwise fantastic dining experience
Had a good experience at Hefner Grill. We were seated promptly after a 5 minute wait. The seating location was a great view of the lake. The wait service was average a little slow with my second Salty Dog (smile). everyone in our party enjoyed their meal selection. I would recommend.
Dental School graduation
Great view of lake, good food and great service as well.
The Oysters St. Charles was amazing. Crab bisque and Baltimore Crab dip also amazing. Everything that we had was very good. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend.
This dinner was to celebrate our anniversary and I said so on my reservation and I ask to be seated by the windows overlooking the lake. We were seated in the bar by a window where I had to turn around in my seat to see water. Certainly NOT what I requested! Also not what I think any reasonable, thinking person would would have assumed! The service was performed by the bar tender so it was certainly lacking! The food was ok but not great. I doubt the Hefner Grill will be on our list of places to go for dinner in the future.
Service was very slow.
Great service, great food, great view! We were in town to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. We had a great dinner!
Food was good although the fries were a little salty. The music was in the background and did not overwhelm the conversation. Service was very good. The server kept our water glasses full.
We were there on a date, the food was slow coming, manager came and let us know why, and then compt our meal!
Great service and friendly staff. I will return, many times over
Brunch food items seem to have gone downhill pretty significantly. The food comes out cold, eggs benedict cooked all well done, and it all took a very long time.
Had 4 different servers throughout the night, took 30 minutes to get someone to take our order. Food was good but service was very lacking.
I took my sister, brother and sister in law to Hefner Grill while they were in town helping me move. The service was superb and the food was wonderful. They were impressed by the beautiful sunset on the lake. One of my favorite places which I’ll miss.
Food was great and service was good. The best thing about the restaurant is the view.
It was a great experience, good food, live music, awesome server and staff and a beautiful view of Lake Hefner! Definitely recommend!
We had visitors in from Savannah, GA, and wanted to take them somewhere with a view. We arrived before the dinner rush. Had a table with a view of the lake. Nick, our server did an excellent job. He was prompt, courteous and took great care of us. The food was great as usual. The noise level was low so we could easily converse during dinner. Overall it was an excellent dining experience and we are guaranteed to return.
Great dinner! If you like cocktails, The Vine is a great choice and new to the menu.
Very friendly service, and fantastic food. I'll be back for the fish and chips. Or maybe the pecan crusted trout. Hmmm.
EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE! HAD ENJOYABLE MEAL WITH GOOD FRIENDS!
It was Great. Food excellent reasonable prices
I took a friend to Hefner Grill for her birthday. The food was delicious, and we received excellent service. The view was beautiful just before sunset.
The oysters were delicious raw and prepared St. Charles
An excellent meal! Great food! Great service! A wonderful view of the lake and an incredible sunset! And definitely one of the best chocolate cakes available for dessert!
Engagement and anniversary
The food was great and the service was excellent, thanks to Jacob.
Great food and service
I went on a Friday night for a romantic dinner with my lovely bride of 22 years just to celebrate Friday. The ambience was wonderful. The live 3-piece band played soft, but lively jazz music that just hit the spot for this couple missing New Orleans.
The food was delicious. We shared the spinach’s artichoke dip that my wife loved and I had what was the best fish and chips I have ever eaten (and I have tried them all over the world.)
It was a great experience and we will definitely return.
Excellent food, service and ambiance
Reserved a table for some business associates. They sat us with a waterfront view in a quiet corner of the restaurant, perfect! The servers and staff were very attentive and prompt. Food was great too.
I love Hefner Grill! Their Shrimp Louie is always delicious! All their seafood is just terrific. This was a great spot for the girls to celebrate a birthday. Our server was a bit in a rush given it was not a crowded weekday lunch, but overall everything was really great!
Very relaxing dinner, requested table with lake view and got to see a fantastic sunset! Server was very attentive and went the extra mile during our entire meal. Food was awesome - fried okra, shrimp cocktail, salads, steak (very good quality filet cut and flavor), mashed potatoes, and squash rockefeller (all delicious). We truly enjoyed our evening out!
Shrimp platter only had four grilled shrimps. I don’t call that a platter. I call that an appetizer.
