Delicious seafood. Great service. Menu is on a tablet that allows you to click on the menu item for a picture. Shrimp and grits and brussel sprouts are just some of our favorites. Highly recommend.

The server never introduced himself. I had to ask twice to get a refill on my wine. The service was not bad it just was not great.

We loved everything about our experience. The Model T oysters were awesome. My wife had redfish and I had Cioppino. Both were excellent.

Our Server was untrained and unsophisticated, and the cadence of our dinner service was uncomfortable...We had to beg for water refills. 3 of the 4 entrees came out, and we all waited until my Wife's entre came out a good 3-5 minutes later. The entrees were presented to the wrong guests as well!

AT ONE POINT, WHEN I SHOWED THE SERVER MY B.O.G. APP FOR THE 25% DISCOUNT, HE ACTUALLY TOOK MY PHONE TO CONFIRM.
I CALLED OVER THE MANAGER ON DUTY, AND TOLD HER.
SHE WAS OUTRAGED THAT HE ACTUALLY TOOK MY PHONE.( privacy issues here!)

This is the second bad service experience we have had at THE KEEPER.
Wont be back!
Sorry, Fred

We had girls night out for my sister 40th birthday! When we checked in the hostess was rude my sister was asked if we can get a low top table and her response was like no everything was reserved and walked away! Throughout the whole meal there was still empty tables and now on to our server he was not tentative at all we asked for pepper flakes or hot sauce with our meal and it never came we asked him at the beginning and also after the meal came out and Nothing! Was not a good experience and will not recommend. Your spending so much money for the food which was mediocre and small portion. Your better off somewhere else!!

I wanted to like The Keeper— especially with half price bottles of wine on Mondays, but I don’t think I’ll be going back. Our party of six was greeted by the hostess without any enthusiasm and despite only 4 other parties in the restaurant, we were seated in the bar area where we asked twice to no avail to have the music turned down. Our waitress was low on energy though pleasant. Wine values are good on Monday nights as are raw oysters at a dollar each. I guess during happy hour though you don’t get the normal presentation because we did not get cocktail forks, crackers, lemon or horseradish end it took a lot of work and several trips to get all of that.
All six of us ended up ordering the same item-grilled redfish. Mine was delicious, but one of our group ordered hers gluten and dairy free, and it arrived burnt and crispy with burnt brussels sprouts to go with it. We sent it back and they brought an order that looked and tasted much better, but we had to request that they comp her entree even though the five of us were about finished when her replacement entree arrived. As we left, the manager was at the hostess stand and barely said anything to us as we left. There are too many places in the Dallas-Plano area with good food that have equally good service. Don’t think I’ll be back.

The restaurant in the East Legacy complex had excellent service, very good food and was very clean. The options on the food menu were quite good with us sampling the Calamari, Caesar and house salads and the Red Fish main entree. All in all a great dining experience...

Mixed feelings about the restaurant. The food was very good, with the seafood selections being somewhat limited but all very fresh. We had a late afternoon (5:30) reservation for which we were on time. At the time of our arrival, only four or five other tables were occupied, with possibly eight being occupied when we left. The restaurant was far from busy throughout our visit. After being seated, we informed our waitress that we were not in any hurry. We ordered iced tea while we looked at the menu, and the waitress gave us her suggestions. She returned minutes later for our order, and we told her that we would start with the scallops as an appetizer. She asked if we were ready to order our meal, and we replied that we would do so after the scallops were served. Our appetizer order was served within munutes, and we gave our dinner order. Within five minutes of placement, our orders of trout and tuna were served. We agree that the food was very good, but our total time in the restaurant from seating to paying the check was under forty-five minutes. We weren't looking for a 'fast food' restaurant, and were totally turned off by the speed at which the staff seemed to want to rid themselves of us. We enoy dining and good food, but we also enjoy making a good restaurant visit an unhurried event. We will try one more time in the future, but if the results are the same, we have many other restaurants that allow us to sit and enjoy our meal and the dining experience.

The food was ok. At first they were going to put us in a corner table next to a large party(-20 with kids) even though they weren’t that busy. We moved to another table on the other side of the restaurant.

Once seated the waiter was good. I liked the concept of the menus being electronic so you could click on each food item to see more info and a picture.

I was disappointed because my food did not look like the picture when it arrived. The Muscles were very good. The calamari was not as special as I was hoping. The Brussels sprouts were very nice.

My two friends were ok with their food but said it was nothing special. They had the major magi and the lobster penne pasta.

When I made the reservations I indicated we were their for a birthday. Nothing was ever mentioned and so we left after not ordering one of their two options on the menu.

In all, it was ok. Not sure I would come back just because it probably would be worth the drive.

Calamari was VERY disappointing but everything else was delicious. Music definitely needs to change, it caused anxiety during our meal. Excellent server, thanks Chris!
