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

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

    Glenn Keefer is always there to greet people (he is the bald guy hovering around the bar) so say hi and buy the man a drink. Read more

    My boyfriend and I split dinners. started w grilled calamari, awesome! we had the chopped salad & chicken pot pie. We told them we were splitting & they made 2 small pot pies! Very accommodating!

    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!))

    Best creme brulee I have ever had in my whole life.

    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.

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

    Tunisia Carter · November 25, 2012

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

    ask for josie!

    nica clark · June 19, 2012

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

    Steak Soooo good

    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

    Monk fish!!!

    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!

    Great fresh seafood options, prime cuts and get Woodward Canyon Red- it's a steal for the price!

    Michael Bottigliero · November 5, 2011

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

    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

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

  • Mike C.

    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!

    Mike Costello · November 12, 2010
  • Keefer T.

    This is the place to be

    Keefer Taylor · August 11, 2010
  • Crain's Chicago Business

    You'll get a lot of bang for your buck here. Try the hefty rib eye sandwich with maître d' butter with soup or salad and potato included with lunch entrees. 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

    Dane Kantner · June 11, 2010
  • Jough D.

    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.

    Jough Dempsey · May 11, 2010
  • Andy P.

    Best local steaks in Chicago!

    Andy Phelan · April 11, 2010

    THE BEST food in the city of Chicago. Free pizzas after work on Thursdays and die for! Read more

    The London broil is amazing. No complaints at all

    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.
