All the new steakhouses popping up have nothing on Keefer's. In fact, I feel that they are more reasonably priced, the steak was to die for! The portions are huge, the staff doesn't try and upsell, upsell, upsell (ahem, Maestros). The sides are out of this world. Will be back over and over again. Wish I hadn't waited so long to try them out!

Would highly recommend Keefer's for a party.
Was planning my mom's 75th birthday and stumbled across this restaurant on the web. Photos looked nice, etc. -- that's all I knew of the place. Our whole group was blown away by the food -- large portions, cooked exactly how each of us wanted. They had us in a private room with its own entrance (Keefer's Kafe), which was quaint and comfortable. Servers were personable and attentive.
Prices were excellent and they have the lowest ""minimum"" for a party of any of the restaurants I contacted. Downside -- they charge a $100 server fee and had a mandatory 20% tip. This put the cost of service at 28% of the total tab. The service was great but 28% is quite high.

Let me save everyone the trouble. The food is okay, and may be worth the visit. However, I have dined at this restaurant several times - each time giving it a 2nd, or in my last visit, 3rd and final chance. The service staff is very rude! I have a friend who is a travel agent and he said "" I told you they are rude there, and I told you not to go back"". So there you have folks - up to you. In a city with so many choices, they really can't afford to be rude.

Tuna steak mushy, fatty, bland in flavor
Baked Spud no better than a Ryans steak house
Do yourself a favor and head to Cap Grill or Harry Cary's across the street
Carys is hands down better and has ambience, this place is sterile and way over hyped

I've eaten here a few times, in small groups (4-6) and in a large group (15-20). When in a small group, the food is amazing. My filets when I've eaten in small groups have been the best I've ever had.
When in a large group for a company party, while the service was impeccable (my wine glass did not go empty!) and the appetizers delicous, the steak suffered. My filet was well done (I'd ordered medium rare) and it did not have the preparation I had asked for. The sides and desserts are still delicious though. Great creamed spinach, great house salad with bibb lettuce and some Belgian endive on the side.

The service is impeccable here. The staff is patient and willing to answer any questions and always have great recommendations. The portions are huge and worth the money you spend. The really cute manager told my friends to come on Fridays for their happy hour. I'd definitely go back.

Keefer's has proven to always have consistent food and great service. Every year my husband and I go out for ""our holiday dinner"" around Christmas, and this is the only restaurant my husband will go. We also recommend Keefer's to all our friends! Keefer's is all around the perfect restaurant.. Great food, great atmosphere, and great service.

Visited Keefer's on 12/3 for a late dinner. We were seated immediately even though we were a bit early. Our server, Patty, was at our table immediately. Her service throughout the evening was absolutely wonderful. A glass was never less than half full. She also knew the art of ""when to and not to"" approach the table. Everyone who served our table was excellent. I even got football game scores from a waiter. The food was incredible and I still cannot get over the portions. After a hectic day we wanted to slow down and we did. We enjoyed a leisurely 2 1/2 hour dinner (our pace -not theirs) that I will remember forever. We will be back!
