We have been to Keese's many times when in town. I have never been disappointed. Schwarma dinner,kabobs and freah mint lemonaide delicious as is everthing I have tried on the menu. The cooks are fast,friendly and service with a smile.Very generous portions. We usually take out our meals and enjoy at the beach.Stop in sometime you won't be sorry.

Unbelievable fried chicken! Since fried chicken is not something one should really be eating, if you're going to splurge this is the place to buy it. It's really a take out place with a Greek flair and fried chicken to die for!

Visited this restaurant several times while vacationing in Lauderdale by the Sea and have never been disappointed. We have eaten in the restaurant, both lunch and dinner, and have had our meals delivered right to our poolside room nearby. Great food!

We actually came here because we had had a very late lunch one day and just wanted something small for dinner. We walked by to look at the menu after seeing so many people coming out of here. We ordered the lemon avocado salad, tabouli salad and the greek salad. All were super large, a very good value and tasted... More

This was our go-to place for years. Then the owners got additional help. Then things got sloppy. As long as the owners are watching, the food is usually good. As soon as the owners are gone it's mayhem. I tried to speak with the owner about an issue with the food (our gyros had 1/3 of the meat that they... More

Great fresh gyros to eat in or take out. Very authentic old fashioned snack bar feel. My favorite is the chicken. Right off the grill in a warm pita and oozing with Tzaziki sauce.

We enjoyed the green lemonade, grilled cheese, fries and the seafood platter. The hummus looked delicious and you can tell by how busy they are that the local population enjoys it too. Staff is very hard- working and they get your order out promptly. The menu has so many selections!

I stop in after work once in a while for a gyro.The best in town.I haven't tried the philly cheese yet but I will next time. (I still miss the Eastside Pubs Philly Cheesesteaks) Keese's is nothing fancy but the gyros are very good. The service could be better though.

The food is horrible. The service is pathetic and sadly they must have thought we were tourists instead of ft laud locals. They tried to over charge us. We challenged and the begrudgingly amended. There is much better Mediterranean food around unless you have been at the beach all day and have had at least a 6 pack of Heineken.... More

Although it has a wide variety of food offerings, we go back for it consistently for Philly Steak Sandwiches. It is a diner style place with limited inside and a few tables outside, by the street. They do a lot of take-out. Fine dining it is definitely not, but if you want some satisfying, good tasting food, this is the... More
