Keefer's is the epitome of a Chicago steakhouse. Men in suits eat 18-oz ribeyes while ladies sip dirty martinis at the bar.
Award winning and known for it's fresh local steak, especially their 22 oz T-Bone steak, Keefer's is a great place to go to get delectable food and a sustainable and green atmosphere. Bearnaise at Keefer's is more than a sauce, it's what makes choirs in heaven sing. Keefer's believes in living green and is a member of Chicago's Guaranteed Green Restaurant Coalition.
Lots of great steakhouses in Chicago. This ones very comfortably designed. Great food. Not a place to be seen. Great bar. Great service
This was a great place! Wonderful food and great location! The price was reasonable for what I ordered. The drinks were great too!
BEST Steak in the City! – All the new steakhouses popping up have nothing on Keefer's. In fact, I feel that they are more reasonably priced, the steak was to die for! The portions are huge, the staff doesn't try and upsell, upsell, upsell (ahem, Maestros). The sides are out of this world. Will be back over and over again. Wish I hadn't waited so long to try them out!
Great for Parties – Would highly recommend Keefer's for a party.
Was planning my mom's 75th birthday and stumbled across this restaurant on the web. Photos looked nice, etc. -- that's all I knew of the place. Our whole group was blown away by the food -- large portions, cooked exactly how each of us wanted. They had us in a private room with its own entrance (Keefer's Kafe), which was quaint and comfortable. Servers were personable and attentive.
Prices were excellent and they have the lowest "minimum" for a party of any of the restaurants I contacted. Downside -- they charge a $100 server fee and had a mandatory 20% tip. This put the cost of service at 28% of the total tab. The service was great but 28% is quite high.
Don't eat here.... – Let me save everyone the trouble. The food is okay, and may be worth the visit. However, I have dined at this restaurant several times - each time giving it a 2nd, or in my last visit, 3rd and final chance. The service staff is very rude! I have a friend who is a travel agent and he said " I told you they are rude there, and I told you not to go back". So there you have folks - up to you. In a city with so many choices, they really can't afford to be rude.
Head to Harry Carys across the street – Service ok,
Tuna steak mushy, fatty, bland in flavor
Baked Spud no better than a Ryans steak house
Do yourself a favor and head to Cap Grill or Harry Cary's across the street
Carys is hands down better and has ambience, this place is sterile and way over hyped
Great in small groups, not so much in large groups – I've eaten here a few times, in small groups (4-6) and in a large group (15-20). When in a small group, the food is amazing. My filets when I've eaten in small groups have been the best I've ever had.
When in a large group for a company party, while the service was impeccable (my wine glass did not go empty!) and the appetizers delicous, the steak suffered. My filet was well done (I'd ordered medium rare) and it did not have the preparation I had asked for. The sides and desserts are still delicious though. Great creamed spinach, great house salad with bibb lettuce and some Belgian endive on the side.
Good Looking Manager, and Great Food is a Plus too... – The service is impeccable here. The staff is patient and willing to answer any questions and always have great recommendations. The portions are huge and worth the money you spend. The really cute manager told my friends to come on Fridays for their happy hour. I'd definitely go back.
Excellent Steaks! – Keefer's has proven to always have consistent food and great service. Every year my husband and I go out for "our holiday dinner" around Christmas, and this is the only restaurant my husband will go. We also recommend Keefer's to all our friends! Keefer's is all around the perfect restaurant.. Great food, great atmosphere, and great service.
very delicious – went here for my bday one year, and can't wait to return ever since! very modern, nice atmosphere, and the food is DELICIOUS! steak is one of my top favorite things, and they do a fantastic job here -- love it!
