    This place is fantastic for a romantic date night, or just a regular dinner night. The food is absolutely amazing, and I have not had anything bad there. I would recommend this place to anyone. Also, the outside patio is just beautiful at sunset, and on a cool night!! With a little bit of planning, you could make a night for two into a special, romantic evening that will guarantee a fun night when you get home!! ;)

    What's with the pepper? Too much pepper on Cesar salad...very strong. Same with squash Rockefeller and it was very, very dry. Crab bisque was very good, but was the only offering that evening for soup. Window shades drawn although the sun was not a problem at the time of day. Isn't the view the purpose of the prices? Area was just worn.....restaurant just worn out. Servers communicated with each other by yelling across restaurant. Will not be back.

    We had a wonderful experience for a birthday celebration for two. The food was superb! We split an entree because the portions are very large and generous. It was plenty to satisfy for the two of us. Seafood is excellent and the grilled pork chops were juicy, tender, and thick. Then there was a cool jazz band playing in the background while we enjoyed our night out together. We will definitely be going back.

    If you get a table with a view, it's worth it. Two man band was outstanding, played smooth jazz at a respectable level. Everyone else in the restaurant tried to outdo each other, seeing who could be the loudest. Having a quiet conversation at your own table was nearly impossible. Made a the reservation with a special request for a view of the Lake and the lighthouse and told the restaurant it was our 13th wedding anniversary. Great table, would have been special if they at least acknowledged our special night. Told the waitress we were in no hurry, food came out very quickly. The food was very tasty, and good sized portions. I would go back, maybe not I on the weekend.

    waiter was MIA & after food delivered we didn't see him; had to ask for check. the bar = extremely noisy. Bad decision to stay. We had reservations, so I really don't "get" why we were seated in the bar area. Ribs = good, mashed potatoes were semi warm and quite lumpy. Salmon undercooked. This was a birthday celebration and all in all, it didn't feel special at all. We probably will NOT be back.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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.
