Walked right in! Had requested a lakeside table! Was taken right to area we wanted! Service was flawless! Offered wine samples when we wanted was not available found extremely agreeable substitute! Only hitch was the Crab Cakes we ordered for appetizer they were not cooked,last time I had crab cakes at Hefner Grill I raved about them fur days! Entree was great! Opentable and Hefner grill both winners! ( but don’t order the crab cakes)

The food was amazing! I usually get the same thing every time I go, but I tried something new this time and it did not disappoint. Our reservations were a little close to the live music, but the atmosphere was wonderful.

We have been to the grill before, but this time the service was not good. Maybe because we were there on Father's Day after brunch they were out of things. The jazz group was also not there. We also requested a water view but we had to look around a pillar. Recommend going later in the evening, after 6:00 not in the afternoon. We were disappointed this time around.

Our group all had a fish entree for Father's Day and it was wonderful. We commented that it was better than some we had on the coast (either one). Had enough for leftovers the next day.

We went on Father’s Day. Had a reservation. We were seated on time but we waited an hour and 10min for our food.
Our waiter was fantastic - but service from the kitchen was slow.

Everyone was nice. Food was fine. But it will be a while before we go back.

A great experience for a date night with my wife. I had asked for a view with some privacy "if possible". They stuck us in a rounded booth with a perfect view of the lake. The rounded booth gave us some additional space with privacy and the service was outstanding. The food portions were just about right. This was our second time to visit and even better than last time. A definite repeat is certainly in our future!!!

Altho overall we enjoyed the brunch.. it seemed strange that a table that came in after us got ALL the attention of the wait staff.. and actually got their food before us.. staff walked by several times and never offered to refill drinks until we asked.. we counted no less than 40 trips of many staff to the other table walking directly past our table. We plan to give them another chance tomorrow so we’ll see how it goes!!

Another great meal at Hefner Grill! We had cocktails at the bar before dinner and then enjoyed a bit of live music while we dined. House salads are usually boring, but the herbed vinaigrette makes Hefner Grill's something special. The mahi and the salmon were expertly cooked, as was the filet. The coconut shrimp were sweet and crispy and the fish and chips were nicely fried. The rigatoni was a little on the spicy side, but in a good way. We skipped desert this time because we were so full. Service is efficient and friendly All in all, I think Hefner Grill is one of the best values in OKC.

My husband and I went to the Hefner Grill for our anniversary. The service and food were wonderful, the pricing a little high but normal for this scale of restaurant. We were seated at a huge table, and it was so noisy because of the music (jazz--which was good from what we could hear of it) and crowd chatter that it was hard to "visit." The view from our table was stunning, however, and overall, it was a special evening. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

First, the food was good and decently priced. It was interesting though, making my reservation I put down that it was a special occasion/wedding anniversary. They had no idea. I asked for a table with a lake view and got a post instead. Asked to be moved, which they accommodated but put us way down at the end. Then, our waiter disappeared. Guess they sent him home because it was a Monday. But by the time someone else came along, dessert, which we were at first interested in, was no longer desired. We were just ready to go.

The Heffner Grill is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Oklahoma City. This was the first time we had the Sunday brunch. The food was excellent, the service was friendly, the view sitting on the outside deck was magnificent, and the music was relaxing. We love eating here.

For the first time EVER we were very disappointed in Hefner Grill-having been a faithful customer from opening day-and always enjoying our experience & the food-the menu has been revised. Some of our favorite items have been taken off-other items changed. Please re-look @ what you are doing!
Also the windows really need to be cleaned
So the wonderful view could be enjoyed-thank you

Four of us met to celebrate the end of school and enjoyed our conscientious server and quiet table. We are regulars at Hefner Grill, but trying to adjust to the new menu. Our favorite items - fried catfish, fried green beans, garlic mashed potatoes, and the seven layer chocolate cake are all gone. Two of our party ordered the pork chop and were pleased. Another ordered the fish and chips and said they were okay. I ordered one of the new items - Ritz Crusted Cod. It was not as wonderful as it sounded. The crust was greasy and the peppercorn sauce just didn't go with the fish at all. Hefner Grill is always good to adjust menu items to fit your dietary needs. Next visit I will likely order the blackened catfish (still on the menu) pan grilled. When you go, and you should definitely go, be sure to order the crab bisque! It is a great start to your meal or a perfect option to replace a side. Overall our visit was wonderful! We just miss our standby order. The view of the lake is great from any table and when the weather is nice, ask for a patio table. Enjoy!

Love being business lunches here. It’s always easy to have a conversation without having to yell but not so quiet that the whole place can hear you. Staff is friendly, food is well done, and there’s always left overs.

The Hefner Grill was a fantastc spot to begin our Oklahoma trip. The staff was so friendly and we had a table with a spectacular view across the lake. And the food! Very innovative dishes with the very best ingredients. Good wines to compliment the food. We enjoyed the piano in the bar--old standards for good bacground.

Although I made a reservation and included that we were celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary, nothing was said about celebrating our milestone, which was disappointing. We mentioned it to our server and she wished us a happy anniversary but that was the end of the acknowledgment. The "new" menu has the same things the older menu had even though when we asked about any specials, our server said they have all been included on the new menu. The food was good but the portions were noticeable smaller than we have had over the years we have been there.

The Hefner Grill was a good choice for dinner with an old friend. I had several people recommend it to me and I enjoyed the location next to the lake. I started with a classic Manhattan which made a great start to the meal and it looked great!news We the Crab cakes and the Teriyaki Mahi with seasonal veggies. The cakes we're tasty and seasoned just right. The Teriyaki Mahi was perfectly cooked and had the right mixture of Asian slaw to offset the Teriyaki and complimented the fish just right. No room for dessert, but the selection looked great! Colt was our server and he did a great job!
