Keeler Hospitality Group, LLC, the creator of popular restaurants such as Liberty Station American Tavern and Smokehouse in Scottsdale, is set to open its latest concept in Carefree in December. Located at 7212 East Ho Hum Road, Keeler’s Neighborhood Steakhouse will offer diners a high-quality, affordable steakhouse experience in a non-pretentious social house environment.
“We are extremely elated about the introduction of this new concept and are looking forward to providing it to the diners of Carefree and to our city’s visitors from near and far,” says Paul Keeler, president and CEO of Keeler Hospitality Group. “Keeler’s Neighborhood Steakhouse will satisfy the need for a high-value, top-of-the line steakhouse dining experience in Carefree while also staying true to the approachable and comfortable atmosphere the surrounding community.”
The culinary team at Keeler’s is spearheaded by Keeler Hospitality Group Executive Chef Anthony Apolinar, who currently lends his talents to both Liberty Station restaurant locations in Scottsdale. The menu at Keeler’s will feature Certified Angus Beef specialty cut steaks, the freshest seafood available, chicken, and American comfort food specialties.
Starters will include “For the Table” sharables such as Lobster Mac & Cheese, traditional Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Crab Cakes, Mussels and Fried Artichoke Hearts. Classic steakhouse menu soups and salads include French Onion Soup and assorted Bisques and Market Greens, Caesar, Wedge and Cobb salads. “Neighborhood Favorite” mains include Double Bone-In Pork Chops, seared Lamb Loin Chops and Braised Short Ribs. To accompany any protein from seafood to steak, specialty sides include Bleu Cheese Cream Spinach, White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes, loaded hash browns and Risotto. Spirit-forward, traditional cocktails, craft draft beers from Arizona Breweries and an extensive, well-balanced selection of bottled wines and wines by the glass round out Keeler’s offerings.
The restaurant’s upscale menu will be matched by the high-end yet comfortable “social house” atmosphere with a neighborhood feel featuring multiple seating areas, a centrally located island bar, open kitchen, large patio, lush courtyard and rooftop starlight deck.
