    4 of us went to cheevers to celebrate 2 birthdays. Our server, Hunter, was personable, friendly and engaging. Service was great. My only complaint is that the seating seems cramped, and you get to hear other table's conversation.

    Had dinner at Cheevers on 9/11/14 for first time. In a word this place is "fabulous" and is at the top of my OKC metro fine dining list. Moderately priced with a very creative menu and nice wine/cocktail list. I had the seafood tamales which were beyond incredible. Situated in an old house just west of the state Capitol, it has long been a favorite among the Capitol crowd for lunch. Great service, not pretentious, great bar and most importantly great southwestern influenced food. It will be on my regular dinner rotation from now on.

    Nice restaurant, good food, service was the issue. 6:15 reservation on Thursday night and waitress keep disturbing our conversation when we noted to her several times we were not ready to order. Seemed not to get point. Rather short and terse.

    This is a gem of a restaurant in OKC. It is hard to pick an entrée yet even harder is picking out their unique side dishes. If you like Bleu Cheese, the Potato Chip appetizer is not to be missed. Every dish has a unique taste twist.

    Girlfriend's steak was perfect, it takes certain planet alignment to satisfy her with a steak. Molasses chicken was borderline over cooked but still enjoyable. Poor choice in music however, a bit jarring for the setting, probably more a consideration for the young staff than the patrons. I've eaten at Cheevers 3 or 4 times and I'd dine there again.

    Excellent Food, Excellent Ambiance and Interesting History. I ordered the Ribeye and the steak was cooked to perfection and my girlfriend ordered the Chicken Fried Steak which I thought was crazy at a nice restaurant. However, the Chicken Fried Steak ended up being the better meal. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. I would also recommend making reservations.

    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.

    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.

    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.
