The bar to beat for St. Patrick's Day, it's a good-times, pint-or-three Irish pub the rest of the year.. The Scene This place has history, going back to the 1960s when it was O'Keefe's Tap Room, a history still visible despite the many additions and remodelings. A white brick exterior gives way to a comfortable series of rooms festooned with lots of green accents and Irish-obilia. The brogue-accented bartenders are fast and furious with the beers (more than 100 offerings) and the all-ages crowd is unified by their affection for the place.
The Food Once known for its "seven-course Irish dinner" (six beers and a potato), O'Keefe's fare has branched out to include such favorites as messy burgers (regulars swear by the one topped with peanut butter and bacon) and crisp, greaseless fries. Salads are skippable, with their pallid veggies and overabundance of dressing, but low-carb followers have a variety of sophisticated choices such as zingy grouper piccata with roasted zucchini.
