    Chicken fried steak was recommended and did not disappoint. Best I've had. Also, the calamari was one of a kind with a special twist and is also a must have. Great place. Great food. Great service. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    Visited from out of town based on Open Table reviews and was not disappointed. Unique restaurant in an old floral shop with the former flower coolers now deployed as a wine chiller. Food was very good, Southwestern-accented cuisine. I had some of the best grilled salmon ever which is saying something since it's difficult to find a NEW preparation for salmon, but this dish served with corn bread and white beans was excellent. One word of caution: the portions are HUGE.

    Had the filet and it was wonderful, it came with green beans and mashpotatoes. Cooked to perfection. Has to be one of the best steakhouses in OKC. Had the roasted pecan icecream ball for desert and it was out of this world delicous big enough for 4 hungry people.

    We booked brunch for 4 last Saturday and enjoyed it very much. The food is excellent, had some favorites on the menu like buscuits and gravy, but also specialty items such as seafood sweet potato tamale-outstanding! The service was attentive and under-stated. We will definitely return and recommend!

    Cheever's is always so good. The staple menu is fantastic and the specials are even better. The only complaint that I ever have is that the tables are so close together. It can feel very cramped if you dine when it is full. However, the food and the staff make it totally worth it. We try to do a girlfriend's brunch there about once a month.

  • A Very Busy Dinner Evening
    YumYum1VIP
    Dined on 8/19/2014
    I dined at Cheevers with someone new to OKC. We had dinner to discuss some business. I booked a table for two for "private conversation". I saw two empty tables that met that requirement when I came and when we left. We had an awkward table between the front and back end of the restaurant. It was uncomfortable and awkward for business and dining. We discussed our business. I paid the bill and we left. Hosts should not assume that the customer/host is always a man. We live in the 21st century. This is the first time that I have been unhappy with Cheevers. This restaurant can certainly do better.

    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!!!

    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?

    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.....
