Great food and service, always busy. Priced a little on the high side but probably typical for the area. Keys has had a great reputation for many years (especially for their pies, which I didn't try).

Was in the Twin Cities to visit Family. Had suggested that we get together for breakfast before I flew out. This place was chosen because it was convenient. The place has a lot of chairs, but it does not function well enough to justify all of those chairs. The menu describes great meals, the plates that result are less than... More

Nothing unique or special about their food or price. Plain breakfast food. High prices. Pretty load. Service was good.

I had the roast beef with potatoes and gravy and the meat was so tender, no fat and an ample portion of everything. I had their banana cream pie for dessert and it was scrumptious. My husband had the vegetable with rice soup and he found it to be delicious.

My sister suggested Keys for lunch with elderly aunt and a couple of others. I was here several years ago and it was good then so thought that would be fine. Noisy and crowded, though I can't figure out why. The food was pretty awful - tasted like they use the very low end of the ingredient spectrum. All of... More

Have been to this neighborhood establishment several times - the food is consistent and satisfying. The servers are always in a rush or so it seems, but the rating is for the food. They have mastered breakfast and have the awards to prove it. I've seen poor ratings about their service - too bad their food trumps white aprons and... More

Restaurants in St. Paul and Minneapolis this place provides something for everyone. Baked goods. Eggs. Pancakes. Generous portions. Can get crowded on the weekends.

Keys has locations all over the Twin Cities. Most serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But it seems the main focus is on breakfast. The pancakes are fantastic. There is a nice selection of other offerings. But little attention is paid to the healthiness of any options. The atmosphere and vibe is that of a 1950s diner.
