Diner Reviews
  • "This was the first time to use Open Table. All of my requests were fulfilled. What an easy process and the Cheever's staff followed up to confirm reservation. Lunch was yummy. Was concerned that the gentlemen dining with me were meat and potato guys, that they might not find the just right item but that was certainly not the case. Wait staff were very attentive."

  • "My chicken fried beef was tough as shoe leather, I was supplied with a steak knife but I still had trouble cutting it and chewing the meat was a chore!!! Everyone else's meals were good and the seasoning of my meal was good, but the chicken fry was terrible!!!"

  • "This was our 2nd time around, and there will be many more to come. The food was good and the service is great. The dinner rolls are out of this world. They have such a unique flavor. There was so much food i couldnt eat it all. Not complaining though."

  • "I highly recommend the kale and Brussels sprouts salad. It sounds too healthful to be good, but I assure you it's not!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We stepped out of our ordering comfort z,one and had cups, avocado and Brussels sprouts salads and of course ice cream ball for an extra treat. All that and an attentive personable server - couldn't ask for more!!!"

  • "Cheevers never disappoints. Ambiance, food, wine selection, service. Yes, yes, yes, and yes."

  • "Alway great service. There is a great feel in the restaurant. It feels chic and classic at the same time and the special, the tenderloin burrito was delicious. The ice cream ball is alway such a decadent treat!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The food was outstanding and gorgeously plated, the waitstaff was friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and the decor was tasteful and refined. I was especially impressed with the fact that they offered us free desserts because our entrees took "longer than we would like" to be brought out--mind you, we never complained to anyone about our wait time and in fact were not displeased at all. The one negative note I have is that the chairs are not at all comfortable and thus not conducive to a leisurely dining experience. Overall, it was a truly memorable experience."

  • "When on a rare occasion I meet someone who says they have not been to Cheever's, I gasp in dismay. This is indeed an OKC gem. Eclectic crowd, trendy old-school vibe that can't be recreated in a new restaurant, the flavors are as eclectic and delightful as the clientele. What's not to love?"

  • "Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. They even called early the afternoon of our reservation to verify we were still coming. We had a group of 8 so they gave us a private room. Service was wonderful. Food was great. Come, spend some time here!"

  • "Went to Cheevers before going to concert. Our server was great. Offered a sample of wine we were not familiar with. Service was attentive and friendly. The fish special of grouper was delicious. The seafood tamales were great as usual."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The Brussel sprouts were like trying to chew up plastic, the tortilla soup was so thick that it wasn't like eating soup and I found something foreign in it after I realized I could not chew it up. The blue cheese potato chips were very good as an appetizer. The strawberries & biscuits dessert was average (definitely not worth $8.00). The food at Cheevers is usually over the top but not this time....."

  • "Get the carrot cake. Seriously. I will be dreaming about that cake for a while to come. I had the chicken fried steak as well and while still very good it was not as amazing as the hype led me to believe. Some pieces were very rubbery almost and the breading pretty much all fell off but the cream gravy was delicious and the potatoes were very smooth. My husband had a strip steak special and was very pleased. We don't live in the area but if eedid this would probably be a regular spot for date nights."

  • "Hamburgers too charred....but in too much of a time limit to complain....also discovered waitress shorted me $10 in change...hope she enjoyed the 50% tip...didn't earn it. Did not discover til I got back to office and counted changed from $100 bill."

  • "Recently, I dined at Cheevers with a colleague. The lunch took place mid afternoon, and we were actually the only ones eating in the restaurant, as the lunch started around 2:30pm on a work day for many. The lunch rush had finished. However, Cheevers' food and service was its usual yummy and attentive offering. My colleague had a pasta dish and I ate a hearty salad with roasted chicken. We shared a calamari appetizer. Everything was fresh, delicious and refreshing. The waitstaff was very attentive without being intrusive. I can always count on Cheevers to provide an excellent dining experience any time of afternoon or evening. It's great to have a reliable restaurant of this calibre in the neighborhood. Thanks again, Cheevers!"

  • "After hearing of our visit last week, our friends developed a craving to go this week. That was fine with us since we had such a hard time choosing our meals last time. This time we were seated in a different area, more toward the back & north. The experience was every bit as good as the previous. We were a little more demanding but our server was unruffled. We started with Bleu Cheese Potato Chips. Freshly cut, they were warm, crunchy & tangy with the fondue drizzle. I didn't notice what anyone else had because I was so taken with my Masa Vallo con Huevos with Pico de Gallo, masa cakes topped with shrimp risotto & poached eggs. I could have eaten every bite but exercised some self control to save some for my later enjoyment."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The food was excellent had the shrimp and grits, Cinnabun, French toast special. The whole dinning experience was great. But then when we ask for the check to be split it took the guy 3 times to get it right. My friend wanted to leave the guy a tip but she could not get the ticket from him to do so. So in the end he was like don't worry about it. Other than that it was great and we will be back."

  • "I really appreciate their unique selection of delicious entrees. I absolutely love the history and charm of the restaurant. Cheever's is a true OKC gem!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We were seated promptly & received gracious service. It was hard to decide, but we went with the Cowboy Rubbed Salmon Salad, the Quinoa Salad & the Cowgirl Benedict. We were all very pleased. I tried a pod of fried okra from the salmon salad and it was flavorful & nicely fried in a just right batter. I was slightly worried the chicken fried steak might overwhelm my Cowgirl Benedict, but it was proportioned to fit the muffin and well balanced. The egg was perfectly cooked so the yolk blended into the sauce & was warm & delicious. Of the brunch cocktails, the Mimosa was most reasonably priced. Because she was worried the wait for our meal was a little long, our server surprised us with a Roasted Pecan Ice Cream Ball for dessert. Yum!"

  • "I wanted to show off the OKC dining scene to my daughter (who recently moved to OKC from LA) and my parents who live in Edmond but wouldn't go to downtown OKC on their own. We were celebrating my daughter's 24th birthday and everyone loved their choices, which can be difficult with the various preferences and my daughter needing some gluten-free options. Plus, we had a great wine from the Santa Ynez Valley, a place we have visited while in Santa Barbara, CA. One rarely sees those wines outside of CA, and it was very impressive that they carried one. Topped the meal with a pecan ball. Wow!"
