    Had brunch with friends on Sept. 7. First time having brunch at Hefner Grill for all four of us. Each of us raved about the food we ordered. Zak, our server, was outstanding and not hovering or obtrusive. We recommend, in no particular order, the enchiladas, eggs benedict, the chicken salad and the Caesar salad. No matter, however; you will have great food (and lots of it), a wonderful view, if you are overlooking the lake, and servers who know what they are doing.

    If you want the best view of Lake Hefner in OKC, then Hefner Grill is the place. There are some great seats that look out onto the Lake and give a great view of the Sunsets. The food is very tasty. The Service is VERY GOOD. The prices are very reasonable.

    The food at Hefner Grill was quite good. In our party of 4, each of us ordered a different entree & shared w/one another. It was hard to decide if we liked the ribs or pork chop the best. However, I think we decided to give a nod to the ribs, which were outstanding!

    Large booths are great for parties of 5 or more. Much more cozy than having to pull two tables together and having all that extra unoccupied space. Everyone gets to view the lakeside sunset instead of half the group having their back to it.

    Food was great...portions too generous for senior citizens with smaller appetites. Our party had two brunch items, cedar plank salmon, fish tacos, crab cake appetizer and one had a variety of sides. No one had any complaints...it was all delicious. Service was excellent. The person who ordered the fried okra side and the bowl of gumbo raved about them. Our booth overlooking the lake made it perfect!

    We just moved to OKC and decided to try a lakeside restaurant. Our experience was really great. We had a table looking over the lake. The food was spectacular and the live music was relaxing. Afterward we walked down the lake for a relaxing time after dinner. Will go back.

    The food was very good, the view of the lake was outstanding and the service was very good, but almost overbearing. We felt very rushed as the server asked us every couple of minutes if we were ready to order, then every couple of minutes during our appetizers they kept trying to take our plates while we were clearly still eating and others kept coming by every couple of minutes to ask how the food was, if we needed anything etc., and this continued through dinner. Don't misunderstand, they were very nice, but it was a rare date night for us and we couldn't even get through a conversation without being interrupted. We'd go back again though, maybe during a less busy time.

    It is not often we can get our 3 Dr. children together. They are well traveled as are we. 3 of us are real foodies. We all agreed it was a great evening. Very good food. Our daughter felt her ribeye steak was better than Mickey Mantles or Mahogany here. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. Our 2 oyster addicts were impressed with their tray of fresh oysters. In short a great evening.

    As always, my husband ordered the fish & chips and was sorry he didn't share with me. the portions are HUGE!! My favorite, Key Lime Pie is always good. Bar was busy due to a class reunion, but our table was facing the water, on the lower level, which got us away form most of the bar chatter. Alesha is a great server!!

    Very good on all accounts except for the overall loud noise level in the restaurant. Between the live band playing and the large group drinking alcohol and being loud it was difficult to have a conversation with my wife and be relaxed. Our server Makayla (sp?) was excellent and the table looking over the lake was wonderful.

Only problem, which is so common in most restaurants these days is noise. difficult to converse with friends. Good menu selection and nice jazz combo.

    My husbsnd and i went with friends. When we arrived our table was not ready. We were seated 25 minutes after our reservation. The menu is limited but appears to have enough variety. I had the cedar plank salmon and my husband gas the 8oz. Steak. My meal was ok. The salmon was not seasoned as well as i had expected. The Horseradish sauce was sparce, but very tasty...i would have loved to have more. The steak was dry and small.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/13/2014
    While the food and service was great, we couldn't help but notice an overall "unclean" ambiance. There were dirty lampshades over the tables, we walked past several uncleaned empty tables, dirty windows on the lake side, and the rusted railing out on the patio showed a lack of attention to detail. If those types of public things are not attended to, it makes me wonder what gets neglected behind the scenes.

  • BEST FILET I EVER PUT IN MY MOUTH
    2steakfans
    Dined on 7/11/2014
    We always go to Hefner Grill for special occasions and every time we get the steak. Last visit I had the filet - it never disappoints! The price is very reasonable when you consider that some exclusive restaurants charge $40 and above for a good steak by itself. This one comes with choice of 2 delicious sides. Husband had the rib-eye and his eyes literally rolled to the back of his head that first bite. Calamari is wonderful. Their "perfect" margarita is appropriately named. It's simply delightful, as is everything we've tried at Hefner Grill so far. We might try a different entrée next time, but really you can't go wrong with the filet or the rib-eye. Fantastic! Yum! Oh, we also like the atmosphere and beautiful lake view.
