  • "I was in a group of 8 that meet for lunch once a month. We were seated where we had a wonderful view of Lake Hefner. Our waiter was so personable and offered entre suggestions when we asked. A friend and I went with his suggestion of pecan crusted trout. It was so good that we had trouble not exclaiming with every bite how good it was. Everyone at the table was pleased with their meal, also. I highly recommend Hefner Grill."

  • "A Friday night I had out of town clients, very pleased with the food and service. we were sat in the bar area in a big round booth. Live music was playing making a very festive and fun mood. At first I thought it would be too loud and wondered why we were sat in the bar area without requesting it but it turned out good. Everyone really enjoyed the evening. Prices were good also."

  • "Popular restaurant on the most beautiful spot on Lake Hefner! The nice weather brought out crowds eager to enjoy the entertainment in the bar:) the band was loud enough to keep our conversation to a minimum. Drummer went wild on a regular basis. It was a lovely warm night, so an over-abundance of people had traffic backed up & barely moving. Waitress was attentive. Entree was slow to the table. We had fried shrimp, as usual, but we branched out & tried the tenderloin. Perfectly cooked - tender & delicious. Also recommend: Red beans & rice, calamari, crab cakes, crab dip - The Perfect Margarita. The salads & cole slaw are very good too. If you can deal with traffic & loud bands, this is the perfect restaurant for casual dining & good food."

  • "If you haven't tried Hefner Grill, you're missing out. It's the most beautiful spot on the lake. We love sitting in the bar, but there's also an inside patio area & a main dining room area - all with lovely views of the lake. The food is very good, with our favorites being the fried shrimp, red beans and rice, & Calamari. The garlic bread, coleslaw and salads are great compliments to your meal. Inconsistency of other menu choices keep us from branching out on a regular basis:) we know the fried shrimp & coconut fried shrimp will be good, so we usually stick with what we know. They have a few decent wine choices by the glass - like the Copalla Chardonnay. No entertainment on Monday, but the combo, if there, is usually very good."

  • "I didn't expect reservations on open table to get me a table in the bar directly next to a three piece jazz combo. A combo that managed to make every song sound exactly alike. I couldn't hear my wife talking right next to me. They advertise a nice view of the lake which we saw through the throng of people at the bar. I expected better. A disappointing experience."

  • "We wanted a brunch experience as we were in OKC on vacation. It was a very select menu. We imagined it was probably a great experience in warm weather out on the balcony?! The manager was very attentive, and our server was friendly. It was an adventure, but it won't be a return trip for us."

  • "I loved the band they had the night I went, very entertaining. And what a view you get overlooking Lake Hefner. But still, the food was average, maybe slightly above average, and the seat back of the booth wobbled and caused my girlfriend to get into a war over it with the guy behind her, even though I begged her to switch places with me. All in all, I would go back :), just probably not often."

  • "Great location, view of the lake was nice. My server was not very knowledgeable about wine list and the menu. Not very helpful. The food was alright, but highly overpriced. We were greatly disappointed...was on a weekend getaway and our dinner was not the highlight of the weekend. Will probably never go back."

  • "We had the trout and the tuna and they were wonderful! The only complaints we have are that the tuna had too much pepper on it which at times killed the taste of the tuna and the trout had a little too many pecans."

  • "Hefner Grill always seems to hit high marks with the food, the service might need a little bit of tweaking (order one item, get another), but overall, it's our go to place for lunch, dinner, bar, appetizers, guests from out of town."

  • "Elegantly casual restaurant that we usually love - not so much this time. Can't beat the lake views, and there is always a band entertaining in the bar area. Lovely background music that also allows you to talk at the table. Unfortunately we hit it on an off food night:( We had shrimp cocktail (shell left on some of the shrimp) & fried shrimp - both a little over cooked, dry & tough:( Cocktail sauce tasted off too. Very disappointing! Our waiter, although very nice & polite, was slow getting our drinks (even water), but tried to make it up with the diet coke order - bringing many refills. Very appreciated! Bar well drinks were good size pours. Worth the wait. We'll try again, and hopefully, it will be back to it's usual high standards."

  • "Had dinner at Hefner Grill for the first time on Valentine's Day. There was a very rude hostess at the front desk when we arrived (we had reservations), but the rest of the evening was excellent! We ordered the Caprese Salad, Cedar Plank Salmon and Pork Chops and all were amazing. The mashed potatoes were some of the best I have ever had. We split smaller portions of the chocolate cake and key lime pie, recommended by our server, and both were fantastic. Our servers were friendly, professional, and attentive even though it was extremely busy. Loved the live music that could be heard through-out the dining room. Aside from the poor first impression at the front desk, we loved it and will be back!"

  • "After having experienced the Hefner Grill, I can say without a doubt, it is the best dining experience I have ever had. The food was excellent, and the waiter made some good recommendations. The atmosphere was perfect for my wife and I to enjoy a meal that I would consider 5 star! Although, there were children there, they were well mannered and not making too much of a fuss. I applaud the parents that were taking the time to teach them courtesy in a restaurant. I am looking forward to our next visit!"

  • "I have to say I was really disappointed with my recent dinner at Hefner Grill. We started with the Shrimp Cocktail and while the shrimp were ample in size, you couldn't ignore the grittiness in every bite. It's sad when shrimp aren't cleaned properly and biting into a piece of shell is never good. My husband ordered the Top Sirloin and he thought it was good, but my Peppered Crusted Tuna was not. Again, more than ample sized tuna steaks - seriously I would have been happy with only one filet. What I couldn't get past though is that as I made my way into the middle of the filet, I found it was slightly frozen. The bad definitely won out over any good so I don't think we will be back."

  • "Looking for a great place to take a date? My wife and I enjoy this spot for its great food and ambience. Impress your date with a reservation. You will notice the live piano in the back ground but will not be overwhelmed by the amount of sound. We always order shrimp cocktail and I would recommend trying the pecan crusted trout!"

Will go back again, and won't wait for a special occasion to do so. Very busy on Valentine's day, but thanks to OpenTable was shown to a great table in less time than it took to have our first glass at the bar."

  • "We went for Valentine's day, also we made a reservation a week in advance. They say it's in the private dining area, it felt more like the kids table we are in a room filed with young couples, it was a little awkward, and the lighting seemed a bit bright. The food was good, we ordered the crab cakes, they were yummy, wine was great, the problem came with the steak,I ordered a fillet, he ordered the special, mine was wonderful, his was burned...like charcoal. So eeehhh..I would go again off um not paying lol."

  • "The restaurant ambience was very nice very middle scale but not to upscale at all. We started off with a calamari appetizer which was very good in the sauce was great as well. For our main meal my wife ordered the shrimp platter and I ordered the fillet steak meal. The food was so so the steak was okay but could have been cooked a little bit better. The potatoes that came with it were absolutely great and vegetables were great as well. Overall this was a ok experience but hopefully down the line as we continue to visit this restaurant the food gets better and the Jazz Band keeps playing."

Sunday Brunch is delish and we can go after church. It is moderately priced so we can go as a special family night. My wife and I enjoy it because it is convenient and romantic."

The pecan crusted trout and cedar plank salmon was very good as well. The noise in the bar was a little loud is the only negative but would go back because the food was very good as was the service."
