“Delicious lunch!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Upon the recommendation of someone at the front desk, I tried the cafe at Keefer's and it was a quick grab and go lunch. I had a sandwich and some chicken noodle soup which was delicious. They also give you the option for chips or an apple. The potato chips are homemade and so yummy. I would definitely recommend and will come back if I am every staying at the Kinzie again.

“A Chicago Must”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Keefers has become a Chicago treasure and never fails to deliver on a great dining expereince. Glen Keefer and his crew deliver top notch steaks and seafood and the atmosphere is always electric. Get drinks and nosh at the bar before dinner...the place is always buzzing. Then prepare yourself for a long culinary extravaganza! A nice porterhouse and a few lobsters and you have a party.

“2nd Visit”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

I travel for a living and have a restaurant ownership & Chef background! Keefer's has the Big 3 going on - Better than Great Service, servers are smart and hip, Wonderful Food - Ny Strip, Pork Chop, Grilled Calamari all Excellent and Finally "Setting/Vibe", very Alive, Comfortable and Happening!

I always sit at bar - but assume Table Service is excellent as well - oh and for high-end Chicago - prices are sense able!

Great meal and awesome service. Steak salad and pan roasted chicken were perfectly crafted. Our waiter, Trent Wolf, was helpful and hilarious. Wonderful evening.

“Always Top-Notch Food & Service”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Last night, we had dinner at Keefer's with a party of six. The food and service were excellent as they usually are. Many of our guests ordered from the bistro menu an found the food enjoyable. We slit a Delmonico steak, which was excellent and large enough to be filling for 2 people. The service is always excellent and it was nice of the owner, Glen Keefer, to stop by our table as well as other tables to check that everything was fine.
