Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "Cheever's is consistently a great dining experience. Not only is the food and service excellent, it is a great place for a quiet conversation with good friends. And it is in the neighborhood. Wine list is notable."

  • "We celebrated my daughter's birthday with Sunday brunch at Cheever's Café. The menu was full of unique options with something for everyone. Each family member ordered something different and everyone was very pleased. The chicken and waffles were wonderful. The history of the building added to the experience as well. I will definitely return!"

  • "Loved our first visit to Cheever's!!! Everything was delicious! From our chopped salads, to the Alaskan Halibut to their Chicken Fried Steak with Jalapeno Gravy, (best chicken fried steak this Texas girl has ever had!), to the pecan covered ice cream with chocolate, caramel sauce and just a hint of chili spice. Highly recommend."

  • "Cheevers. You impress us every time! Your menu is to die for! You re-invent classic dishes and put your special twist on them! You're consistently delicious! We love dining here and we always bring out-of-towners here so they can have an exquisite taste of OKC! The chicken fried steak is our absolute favorite, and for dessert, the ice cream covered in spiced pecans and hot fudge...oh MY!!!! The servers are always very attentive and have great personalities! I don't have one bad thing to say except "Thank you, Cheevers!!!" Cheers!"

  • "Cheever's is an Oklahoma City tradition. The creative menu features traditional southern dishes (e.g. chicken fried steak) but also creative, modern dishes (Don't miss the spicy roasted quail short stack appetizer!). All the locals KNOW this is the place to go. It can feel a bit "see and be seen" but is small enough to feel intimate for a romantic dinner. I informed the staff it was my husband's birthday in advance of the dinner, but they made no mention of it. This was a major disappointment. But we love Cheever's and will be back."

  • "Celebrated our 33rd anniversary. Shared the chopped salad. Hubby had the ribeye with jalapeño potatoes. I had the Alaskan halibut with spicy shrimp risotto. Excellent! Because it was our anniversary, we were offered a selection from the dessert menu and we chose the pecan crusted ice cream ball. We have been going to Cheevers for years and it is always wonderful!"

  • "Recently, I hosted my second lunch at Cheevers, for a dear friend who was in town. Coincidentally, I had the same waiter (who was excellent) that I had previously enjoyed. The "joint was jumping", in full lunch swing and my request for a table by a window, was also honored. We had a lovely lunch. The food was hot and brought in a timely way (important because my friend had to catch a plane, later in the afternoon). Everything was delicious. This visit, i opted for a delicious burger and house potato chips. I will continue to bring friends and guests to Cheevers because I love the food and the ambience and because the wait staff does an excellent job of trying to honor reasonable requests. Bravo and Thanks, Cheevers!"

  • "I really wanted to like this place, I've heard so many great reviews but I won’t be back. I visited Cheevers on 3 separate occasions, twice with reservations and once as a walk in. Each time the host was non-existent and we stood awkwardly in the entry way waiting for someone to greet /seat us; all 3 times I had to flag down someone to ask to be seated. When we finally were seated it took the server OVER 10 minutes to greet our table and on 2 of the 3 occasions I had to get the host to track down our waiter. The servers were rude, inattentive and gave off a 'I don't want to be here' vibe. The food was fine, our favorite item was the queso - but it is pretty overpriced for what you get. I have tried Cheevers 3 times and I will never go back."

  • "We have lived near Cheever's for a while now and finally took the plunge to try it. The food was so delicious! Every item we ordered was seasoned and flavored perfectly - not overpowering or not enough, just right. Each item had it's own twist, which made trying new items even more exciting. Our service was great and very hospitable. We did make reservations, and even though it was our first time we felt very comfortable. We will definitely be heading back!"

  • "My wife and I took my parents to Cheever's Cafe for Father's Day. It was their first time to visit the restaurant, and I really hoped they would like it. They loved it. They commented on the beautiful dining room and how nice it was to see the flowers just outside the windows. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. My dad remarked that his chicken fried steak was one of the best he's ever eaten. Our waiter was wonderful as well. He was always there at our table when we needed something, but seemed to be invisible the rest of the time. The entire evening was a huge success. I will definitely be back."

  • "We enjoyed wonderful entrees and desserts -- the waiter was attentive -- The pork tenderloin and the carrot cake were especially good (when the monkey bread was partially rock hard, we were not charged for it)"

  • "I took my husband to Cheever's for Fathers Day brunch. We were seated promptly, our server was attentive, and the food was good--the Jalapeño Chicken Fried Steak was superlative! It was a nice place to celebrate my dear husband."

  • "I was a little concerned it wouldn't be kid friendly for a 2 year old but my husband had been wanting to try Cheever's brunch for a while so we went for father's day. I was surprised by how many other families had little kids too. We had a nice time."

  • "we have frequently dined at Cheever's and this visit on Friday night for our anniversary was very disappointing. I had requested a corner table by the window but we were set in the bar in the middle of room. Our waitress only came by one time to check on us and our dinner was cold."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Our office had a baby shower for one of our co-workers and we couldn't have been more impressed with the facilities and food. I had requested a secluded area because of the noise we might create for other dinners and were given a separate dining area, a room to itself. The experience was awesome, the food exquisite, service impeccable, and the evening was a total success. I would highly recommend the venue."

  • "I brought an important client to dinner tonight - Hunter was our server and just outstanding - she made great recommendations all evening and knew when to approach and added fun stories to add to our fabulous evening. I'm waiting to hear if we will win the big deal with the client, but we have already committed to bring them back to Cheever's to celebrate"

  • "Found Cheever's on Google. What a great find. The Kale/Brussels Sprout salad was amazing! Every thing was very good. No draft beer which was a disappointment, but nice selection of bottles, both local and from afar. My only complaint was the waiter was a bit aloof and not very personable. I would go again for sure. I hear they have a great brunch!"

  • "It was our first time to Cheevers. I heard about it on the internet and decided to try it for my wife's birthday. It was a great choice!! The food was fantastic and the waiter, Julian, was even better. We had a wonderful dining experience. It's a bit pricey but well worth the cost. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!!"

  • "I dined at Cheever's 6/9/2014 for my first time. After I placed my order, I overheard my server informing his other customers of the special of the day; I may have ordered the special had I been informed there was a special. My order was wrong (had onions when I requested no onions) and service was slow. When I tried to make eye contact with my server when I was ready to order and ready for my ticket & a to-go box, I wasn't acknowledged until several minutes after. I really don't say these things to just gripe gripe gripe. The food was delicious, it was a nice place to dine that is not cookie-cutter, and I will be definitely make Cheever's a regular lunch spot. I only say the things I say for potential employee growth for my server."

  • "The menu looked so go I wanted to order it all. Hubby and I had an app, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts. All were wonderful."

  • "I had been to Cheevers before and the food is very good. There were eight of us for a birthday brunch for our 84 year old mother. It was so loud and crowded we couldn't hear a thing! We could barely get between the tables and the waiter had a difficult time manuervering in and out with water, etc. I am not sure there is ever a time to go when it might be less crowded. It is a very tiny place - good food and service - just a little chaotic - especially for an 84 year old on a walker."
