    The ingredients for the daily specials are chosen each morning from the freshest ingredients from the chef's personal network of meat, poultry, and fish providers in the city. Trust the specials.

    Try the custard sampler! You get a Creme brûlée and two custards. Perfect for two people. Well worth the extra stuffing of the stomachs! (And the $9! (3 desserts! It's a no brainer!))

    After eating here, it became my favorite steakhouse. Everything was delicious and perfect. Excellent salads, melt in your mouth steak, & desserts to die for.

    If you are eating at Keefer's, you are going to want to spring for their homemade potato chips. I can pretty much guarantee that it will be the best seventy-five cents that you will ever spend!

    Great place for lunch when you're in the mood for steak -- dinner's great too, but you can eat those croquettes at noon w/a steak sandwich and be a happy customer Read more

    Hit up Keefer's Kaffe for lunch. My favorites include the greek salad and ceasar wrap. Get a 1/2 wrap and home-made chips for $6!

    Always get a dirty martini and if you are feeling saucy, ask for bacon and blue cheese stuffed olives..... as well, a great steak.

    The Chicken Piccata is very good and the portion size is worth the price. Their Lemon Drop Martini is also very good.

    Just east of the main Keefer's restaurant is Keefer's Kaffe - a great lunch spot for carry-out. I usually go with the chicken club wrap. The curry chicken salad is awesome too.

    The Beef on Weck is great, as is the Chicken Cutlet Panini. Get a cup of tomato bisque soup on the side. They're a little pricey, but good quality.

    Reserve the bar booths if you want a less formal atmosphere. Still great service and more lively.

    Since you're here, be sure to order a martini (they make the best!) and order their delicious calamari!

    Don't bother with Harry Carey's across the street. This is SO MUCH better service, ambiance AND Prime Steaks etc!

    Don’t miss the jumbo lump crab cake, worthy of its name. And consider skipping the bland filet mignon for the hulking smoked pork chop. Read more

    I think this is the only place in chicago with beef on weck. It's usually overdone meat and the horseradish sauce isn't right... but not bad

    Crab cake is meaty, with a substantial, crunchy crust, even around the edge, and a zippy little remoulade. Read more
