Description: Keens Steakhouse, a classic New York chophouse, was already famous for its steaks and chops at the turn of the century. Founded in 1885, Keens has 90,000 clay pipes that line the ceilings – pipes once smoked by customers after dinner. Today Keens legendary mutton chops and dry aged prime steaks are still without equal in the city.

Great steak house with an interesting past related to pipe smoking. This establishment would keep your pipe and had a membership fee whereupon you could show up for a smoke and they would retrieve your own pipe. Today the ceiling is covered in pipes of days gone by.

We had a wonderful experience at Keen's. service was good. Did not feel rushed. Meat was excellent. Raw bar was also excellent. Great drink and wine selection. Decor appears same as it was 100 years ago which gives Keen's character. Would highly recommend

Keens is very understated from the road, but exactly what I was looking for: a classic steak house in New York City.

Our service was "all business". We didn't wait, or need to ask for anything.

My wife enjoyed her filet with bernaise sauce. I'll have to take her word for it. I was busy trying to conquer over the EPIC mutton chops. Delicious.

Carrot cake and cheese cake for dessert. A great choice.

Thanks Keens for a great first night in New York.

The bar has a lighter and less expense menu than the dining room. Great selection of scotch along with the nude above the bar make it a great spot for a drink before a game a MSQ; the bar and tavern fun for lunch and the mutton chop is great in the dinning room for diner. ask for a hard boil egg at the bar for your protein with your drink.

The service and food was of a very high standard. Yes, it is an expensive meal, but well worth it. You don't need starters as they bring you out nibbles whist waiting for your steaks. The sides can be shared as they are as huge as the steaks! We took a doggy bag home as couldn't manage it all.
