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.
Everything was great! We always enjoy going to Hefner Grill. The food was yummy, as always!
Staff was very friendly and understanding when I needed to change my reservation to a later time. Food was excellent as always and our server was fabulous! Don't even think about missing out on the Key Lime pie!
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.
Wonderful place to enjoy a drink and great dinner while watching the sailboats and sunset!
The waitress, Addison was very pleasant. The service was outstanding.
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.
Brunch was excellent-never have been let down!
Went with my wife to have a dinner away from the kids and was not disappointed. Great view, and the blinds were lifted 5 minutes before sunset which made it perfect.
Went to hefner grill to celebrate my sons birthday. Food was excellent staff was very courteous,prompt and professional. We really enjoyed dining at the Hefner Grill. Thank You!
The food was Awesome. I'm over 55 years old and refuse to try "Fish Taco's" until our visit. The tacos were great and I cant wait to come back for your fish enchiladas! We will be back !
Thank You (another dinner guest)
Very relaxing place to enjoy dinner. Service is awesome. Will return again.
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
Perfect evening! Beautiful view of the lake, live music, delicious food and of course, the best date partner!
We love Hefner Grill. The live music is a nice touch and the Shrimp Louie is always a delicious low carb option.
Great seafood in a comfortable setting. Jazz music in the background was pleasant and staff was polite.
Jacob and Carl make it an experience. Everything is excellente!
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.
I brought my sisters her for their first time and everything was excellent. They were impressed with the restaurant and the food.
They always take care of us here!
It was a great experience. Wyatt was very friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. Pleasant. I would be returning
Wonderful customer service and nice water view! Food was good.
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!
calamari came out quick, then long wait (about 30+ min) and after asking 3 waiters we finally got the entrees, , the gumbo that was suppose to come as an appetizer didn't come out until we asked 2 more waiters. Wouldn't reccommend based on service.
Went on Mother's Day. First time visiting this restaurant. Worth the drive and the prices are good. The food was great and the view of the water was perfect.
Went to brunch for Mother's Day. The view was beautiful and the food was delicious. We have been there several times and the wait staff is always attentive. Love the evening view when the sun sets. A great place to bring friends when they visit from out of town.
Hefner Grill for Mother's day... where do I begin? The security people redirected traffic away from the parking lot and made us go to the overflow lot. There was no shuttle so I was forced to walk the entire way (it is a long walk on a windy day in a skirt and high heels carrying a large gift bag!)..... there was a ton of parking in the lot - they just were not letting people in to park. Hugely annoying. The hostesses were kurt and rude to everyone. Our server Susan was a gem and we loved her. The food was really so so - the brunch egg dishes were bleh. Normally, this place is great. I will give them a pass on the food since it was Mother's day but I will always remember that I had to walk for 20 minutes to get to the restaurant because of the security guards out directing traffic. Shame on them for that. Probably not Hefner Grill's fault but alas...
The chaos of a shuttle ride was the only detractor from this otherwise fantastic dining experience
Had a good experience at Hefner Grill. We were seated promptly after a 5 minute wait. The seating location was a great view of the lake. The wait service was average a little slow with my second Salty Dog (smile). everyone in our party enjoyed their meal selection. I would recommend.
Dental School graduation
Great view of lake, good food and great service as well.
The Oysters St. Charles was amazing. Crab bisque and Baltimore Crab dip also amazing. Everything that we had was very good. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend.
This dinner was to celebrate our anniversary and I said so on my reservation and I ask to be seated by the windows overlooking the lake. We were seated in the bar by a window where I had to turn around in my seat to see water. Certainly NOT what I requested! Also not what I think any reasonable, thinking person would would have assumed! The service was performed by the bar tender so it was certainly lacking! The food was ok but not great. I doubt the Hefner Grill will be on our list of places to go for dinner in the future.
Service was very slow.
