We enjoyed our brunch. The food was very good, but the waitress seemed a little too busy. The associated staff was great in bringing our meal and clearing our table, but our waItress only took our order and brought us the bill. The others refilled our water and coffee. Thought there should be a better service from the waitress.

Usually I would give Hefner Grill all stars, but the restaurant was on the warm side Sunday and not comfortable. The biscuits are served whole and neither mine or my husbands had near enough gravy. The guy that brought the food brought out a tiny bit more at my request. We made do and didn't bother to ask our waiter. The young man gave us very good service. Next time, more comfortable temp and gravy.

Our waitress Addi was spectacular. The food was wonderful. Our only complaint is there is some "touch-up" work that needs to be done to the building in general. The door going out to deck has water damage that needs fixed. The light fixtures need dusting all the way to the ceiling. And, the potato sacks on the ceiling?!?----really? This lowers the class of the restaurant.

We save Hefner Grill for a special occasion. We were doing a late bday celebration with just the two of us, also celebrating getting moved into a new house. This is a great restaurant. The service is ABOVE and BEYOND anything you get at your chains like Chili's, olive garden etc. If you want 2 entrees for $20, go those places and get the dumbed down atmosphere and subpar service. If you want great service and don't mind paying more like $20 PER entrée (could be more or less depending on what you get), then pick Hefner.
Lindy did a great job with special requests on food prep - everything arrived as requested. It did take her a while to notice my husband's low water cup, but she caught it before he had to ask, so she was still on it.
Hubby enjoyed the tilapia and I had the cod special - both WONDERFUL.
We'll definitely be back. We picked a good night to come, the OU and OSU games were still going on, so at 6pm on a Saturday, they still had plenty of open tables (even though we had a reservation). There was a live band that began at 630 or so that evening that helps set the mood.

Nice restaurant, but we wish there had been more vegetarian entrees. Parking spaces were scarce so allow time to find a space and then walk a long way.

It is always a pleasure to dine at Hefner Grill. It has become our "go to" place for a nice dinner out. The menu has a good selection of different types of food. The seafood enchiladas are outstanding as is the cedar plank salmon. The Sunday brunch always draws a big crowd (reservations highly recommended). We have eaten here for years and have never had a poor quality meal.

It was my birthday and my hubs and I had dinner there. The service was great. Our server was very informative about anything we asked and also made some suggestions. I believe his name was Cole or Colt. Our food was perfect. The Pink Martini was perfect(for Breast Cancer Awareness-I had two)A very enjoyable sunset dinner

I made a reservation for my 21st birthday excited for the view of Heftner and mimosas and from the first step in the door the staff was nothing but rude. It took our food a hour to arrive. Our waitress came to our table 3 times in a 2 hour period and was not friendly. She was informed of my birthday ahead of time as well as looking at my ID and instead of saying anything positive the only thing she said was "do you want cake? it's free for you" while looking at the ground very uninterested. I will not be back.

The food, service, and atmosphere were all off the charts great. Food was diverse and prepared quickly and exactly as ordered. Service was excellent and very attentive. Obviously the atmosphere was great when dining on Lake Hefner.
Great meal that will become one of our go to date locations.

Went for a steak with a pretty lady and was very happy with the food! Had a crab dip for an appetizer, I was extremely happy with the cook of the steak , mashed potatoes and veggies.
Jack and coke was strong but not too much and service was quick, but not fast food fast.
