Located at 20 West Kinzie, Keefer's Restaurant offers a complete selection of Prime steaks, the freshest of fish as well as pasta, chicken and chops. Your hosts Glenn Keefer, Rich Keefer and James de Castro, welcome you to enjoy Chef John Hogan's (formerly of Savarin, Kiki's Bistro & the Everest Room) straightforward cooking, widely considered some of the best in the business.

Signature dishes include the 22 ounce T-bone and the 17 ounce New York Strip, a carnivore's dream, served with expertly executed béarnaise, bordelaise and peppercorn sauces.

Other highlights include an "I must be in Chicago" Smoked Grilled Pork Chop with a Cherry Cola BBQ Sauce and Corn Pudding; Sautéed Halibut, brushed with Dijon Mustard and crusted with breadcrumbs, and served with wild mushrooms and watercress; and an awesome Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with Remoulade.

Keefer's is ranked "Best of Chicago for Steak" by the Food Network, recommended by the Michelin Guide as "One of the Top Ten Steakhouses in the U.S.", Voted "Best Place for Business Dining" by readers of Crain's Chicago and praised by Zagat, "Keefer's is an independent Chicago local favorite, fit for foodies and steak lovers".

You will love the steaks but you should not miss out on Chef John Hogan's stellar fish dishes like fresh Dover Sole, Scottish Salmon, Maine Lobster, Ahi Tuna, Crab Cakes, Sea Scallops and specials including: Halibut, Hake, Sturgeon, Boullabaisse, Loup de Mer and Rose Fish Pappiote.

Chef Hogan has the cullinary chops to compete at the highest levels and his Charcuterie dishes are the best!
