The waiter was wonderful, he suggested a super wine! We asked him to take our picture, he did and he made sire he got it right! He brought everything on time, the food was wonderful my steak was a bit pink the first time they brought me another one, super attentive but did not crowd us or smother us either. He knew his stuff. He was extremely friendly and so sweet. We could not have had a more present evening. Thank-you Hefner Grill!

Beautiful view of the lake! This is the best restaurant in Oklahoma City for a special day, hands down.

My date and I were at the restaurant for almost 4 incredible hours. We did not spend a lot of money, not because of the quality or selection of the food, but because we were having such a great date. Our waitress was very understanding and patient. She never hassled us and was rewarded very handsomely in the tip.

You are treated very well at this restaurant! The food was cooked perfectly and was overall amazing.

I highly recommend Hefner Grill for dates and special occasions. You won’t be disappointed!

My wife ordered the seafood enchiladas and I had the fish tacos. The manager came out after we finished and asked about my wife's food. She said it was good but the outside was a little soggy. She thanked us for the feedback and removed my wife's meal. Wow, unexpected! Great meal, sunset dinner on Valentine's day was a huge hit with the wife.

Table overlooking the lake at sunset was beautiful setting for our valentines dinner. On top of that, the appetizer, wine, meal and desert were all excellent with servers who catered to every detail. This is our go to place for special occasions.

I’ve been to Hefner Grill about 4 times now, but the most recent was the first time I had been for dinner. The dinner menu is, of course, a little more expensive than the lunch menu, but it absolutely worth every single penny. The lights were dimmed for the sunset, and the music was relaxing yet energetic. Service was great, we were definitely made to feel welcome. My girlfriend’s steak originally came out very tough (top sirloin), but when asked if everything was alright, the staff were very accommodating and actually went out of their way to have a new one made. I’m not normally one to send food back, but we are certainly glad we did. The second steak to come out was absolutely fantastic. I ordered the rigatoni bolognese myself - and let me tell you right now - if you are a fan of pasta dishes like myself - then this dish is an absolute must have. Everything from the flavour to the texture was spot on.

The atmosphere was also fantastic. It was a Friday night so naturally very busy, and I would recommend making a reservation every time. It’s been quiet on every occasion that I’ve been for lunch, yet I still thoroughly enjoyed every time. Dinner, however, is a totally different experience. It’s like a wonderful blend of fine dining and casual. I was there last night for a date, yet I would not hesitate to take my family here either. I am from Scotland, and have been in Oklahoma for 3 years now, so naturally I would want to show off the best aspects of the area to them, and this is definitely somewhere I will take them should they visit. Cannot recommend this place enough.

And don’t even get me started on the view!

I love their peach belinis (still reasonably priced at $7). My favorite meal to order is Seafood Enchiladas. It's hard to get away from those. They're so delicious filled with scallops and shrimp with a wonderful cream sauce. I also love the coconut fried shrimp...my second favorite. I always love going to Hefner Grill to see a little faux "ocean front" dining.

Ordered an appetizer and never saw the waiter again. We got our appetizer and placed our meal order with a member of management as she was just stopping by to take the empty plates. The waiter came by apologized and repeated our order to confirm it.Overall average experience, food and service was average.

We were all happy with our foood selections. The fish tacos were delicious as always. I always have to have the beans & rice. The turkey sandwich and salad was generous and tasty. The pecan crusted trout was amazing! We look forward to going back when the weather permits sitting outside.

We went to The Hefner Grill for a business dinner and it did not disappoint. The menu selection was concise but had enough selection. The service was impeccable. Thanks Susan! And the live piano entertainment in the background was quiet enough you provide a welcome ambiance to make our business meeting more enjoyable. The salmon and veggies was perfect, and definitely get the key lime pie. I would go back again for sure!

Overall, great. They messed up on our GF food, which always happens anywhere you go to be honest. The management made a big deal about it being messed up and they were extremely sorry about the wait on our food.
Once we receive the food, it was great! But the customer service was extremely off and weird. If we are waiting up to 45-55 minutes on some food, please offer us a more drinks or something.

Food was okay. Service was the best part of the experience. This was a late lunch birthday party for my wife. They met my request for a view of the lake. I had the bone in pork chop w/ mushroom sauce; there was 1 mushroom in the sauce. My son ordered a PoBoy sandwhich, which was not on the menu, and they were very accommodating with this which was nice. My wife got the fish & chips. The food was just okay, though. Not a bad experience, just will not be high up on the list of places to go for our next outing.

Manager came to our table to tell us the crème brulee I ordered was not up to their standards. It would be on the house. I ate it anyway and it was delicious. Should have ordered two. Fresh oysters were terrific. Blackened mahi-mahi special was excellent. Service was excellent. Totally enjoyed a birthday dinner out with family and relatives. My second time dining there, will go back.

Wife and I were in OKC for some work and had never been to HG but saw good reviews online...wow!! It was amazing. It made our list of Top Restaurants. The Pecan-crusted Trout is still stuck on my palate...in a good way. Loved this place!! Affordable too. We got the Crab Dip App, The trout and seafood enchiladas. All was delicious!
