It can't get more "Old New York" than this. From the service to the food to the atmosphere, this is pure old school steak house. We were a party of 10 so had a large booth and we had a lot of variety of dining...More

I eat a lot of steak so I'm kind of hard to please. That being said I would still recommend this place. Their steak is good enough, the location, their service are excellent!

Consistently great food and service. Four people and the porterhouse for 3 was plenty . Wedge salad and side of mushrooms and creamed spinach finished the lunch!! Just remember the medium is rare anywhere else!

if your kids eat steak it should be fine.
I've dined here before but am visiting NY on their first trip to NY in late May and thought we'd have our first meal at the bar. I've looked at the online menu and was wondering if there is more, am thinking of my mother who likes her salads. I know you've got a couple listed but are there any other pub menu items not listed? Thanks in advance.

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.
