    What an awesome experience! I called shortly before 4 PM on Sunday to verify their hours because I found conflicting information online-The owner Tom said he was about to walk out the door, I told him no problem I can find another place-- but Tom insisted that I go ahead and come on over. Not only did he wait around for me to arrive but he gave me such an excellent first time experience letting me inspect the fish that I was going to use to make sushi with him telling me the story of how the fish gets there within 24 hours each day. I was so pleased with my experience that I am posting this from my parking spot right out front-- I couldn't wait! Customer service like this deserves to be praised; you will not be disappointed by doing business with Keegan's.

    Tom,

    Hello again,
    I have been to Keegan's three times and each time have purchased delicious fish! Mero then trout from Idaho. I am showing my age because I cannot remember what I just purchased this past Thursday! :-) I thought it was bass but whatever it was it was delicious. Olive oil, salt, pepper and little lemon juice drizzle, YUM!
    Thank you!

    I purchased a small fillet of Mero this past Thursday and it was delicious!!!!! I wish I was in walking distance to the square; parking is a challenge. I will try to shop as much as possible because my first experience with Keegan?s was do great. But I have to say Hyde Park Plaza would be a better option for shoppers.
    Thank you!

    Thanks Tom!
    The shrimp was wonderful. It was served at a small dinner party on Sunday night. One guest ( a professional caterer) commented that it was the best shrimp he had every had. Thanks so much for the prep. PERFECTION!!

    Thanks Tom!
    The Lobster Rolls were great! Super delicious. Had less rolls than Lobster salad , so we could have used more bread .... But it was fine because we had other food too. I think Tuna patties were well liked too . And only two shrimp leftover. We will definitely do the rolls again! Thanks for checking.
    - Linda( p.s. my sons were happy to take leftover lobster home with them)

    The tuna steaks and scallops were delicious! The dinner party was a success. We smoked the scallops, and seared the tuna on the grill. It was all so good, and such a treat. We told everyone that we got the seafood from Keegans in Hyde Park. :)
    Thank you,

    I spent the weekend at a buddies home in Cincinnati, Ralph breuwer. Ralph's lady friend Dorie had purchased smoked scallops, and two different types of smoked shrimp. Let me say I have never enjoyed anything close to the wonderful fare you provided.

    Tom,

    The tuna was really good and the mussels were very good. I only had about eight that didn't open. The lobster was excellent. I liked it in the ravioli but I loved it in the lobster roll I made with the leftovers the next day! I just recommended your place to a friend of mine who is moving out in that area. See you again soon sometime.

    Tom,

    Everyone absolutely loved the special seafood we served Sunday. You were correct to predict that the crab legs would be the best anyone ever had eaten. The smoked shrimp and tuna bellies with your homemade dipping sauces also won rave reviews. Thank you for taking such great care of everything!

    I distributed your business cards and know you will see new customers as a result.

    Hi Tom,

    Shrimp was a big hit. Everybody said they were like little lobster tails. Thanks for your excellent product.

    The food was delicious! Everyone asked where it was prepared. My husband was quite pleased too. I will be returning your platters, etc. tomorrow.

    Hi Tom,

    The salmon, tuna and mussels were delicious! We had just the right amount of each. Thanks for your suggestions,

    Hi Tom,

    We recently returned from the Carolina Coast and for the week we were there, I bought fresh fish off the dock that was stored in coolers. Really great fresh fish. What I want to tell you though is that the fish you provide in your store is every bit as good. Eating fish that I knew was as fresh as I could possibly get was a real treat but not too much better than what I buy from you. Thanks for providing a great product.

    -Mary

    Keegan Seafood

    Tom, everything was great, got lots of compliments - the seafood and dips are always a hit, but there were NO chocolates left over and only a handful of the lemon bars , which we are enjoying now!

    Thanks for an excellent menu as always!

    I'm afraid we have plans for this Saturday. Keep us on your email list, we'll be back one of these days!

    How did the Lobsters turn out? ..

    Tom, 

    Just finished our wonderful meal!  The salmon was awesome and the crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had. The balsamic vinaigrette was great!  All plates eaten clean!

    Thanks for your time today! I think you are going to see a lot more of us!

    Tom:

    Thank you for your courtesy and great service Wed.! I've got to tell you, never having dealt with you before, and having been burnt some by guys at the wharves in D.C., I was worried there'd be some crabs that had "passed on," but every single one of them was VERY alive and kicking when we got them home. Thank you for that.

    To answer your question: Yep, they were sweet as hell, just as you said! I only wish they'd been a little bigger in size, but I figure/guess that'll happen as we get deeper into the Bay's crabbing season.

    The lady that was with me has got your bushel basket, and promises me she'll return it soon. She lives in Cincinnati.

    I hope to get your way again, and hopefully will be able to pick up a few dozen crabs with a bit more heft to them.

    Please feel free to contact me via this e-mail address when that size starts coming in.

    (BTW: Even though it's been a good while since I've cooked any, I didn't screw them up overcooking them. They WERE delicious, if I say so myself, and the meat nice and firm. I guess if you pay attention to the steaming task, it's just like riding a bicycle.)

    Thanks again for making a Blue Peel addict a happy man!!!

    Hi Tom,

    Do those pics look good for you? Man that lobster bisque is awesome dude! I ate both of those containers myself over the weekend. There's a lot of flavor in there, best I've ever had.

    Tom,

    Everything was delicious. I brushed the lobster with butter and lemon juice, wrapped it in foil and it reheated in the oven beautifully. Chris cooked the fillets in a screaming hot cast-iron skillet and they were wonderful. The chowder was really terrific and as for the gelato, I have no words.

    Thank you so much.

    Tom,

    I wanted to thank you for the crab stock that I purchased yesterday. I put it into a seafood potpie (see recipe link below) and it turned out wonderfully. The fresh scallops and frozen shrimp and lobster tail from your store contributed tremendously too! Please thank your chef as well for the stock and the wonderful ladies that baked the delicious bread. Everything made for a very special dinner for my family and I really appreciate it. I cannot wait to try the She Crab Soup and Chowder on Fridays.

    Sincerely,
    Diana

    P.S. I did use a frozen store-bought puff pastry dough in place of the from-scratch crust that the recipe called for. :)

    Hi Tom,
    I wanted to let you know that my clients loved the Halibut. They said that it was the best quality Halibut they have had in Cincinnati. My client's wanted to know how I got fresh Halibut in Cincinnati. I gave them your name and business card.

    Hi Tom,
    The smoked shrimp and scallops were a big hit. The guys really liked them. John, from Texas, was trying to figure out how you smoked them so he could do it at home.
    Thank You!!!!

    - Dorie
    P.S. Love the sauce!

    Hi Tom, The fish was delicious! Everyone raved about it, and asked where I purchased it, so I gave you several referrals. Thanks for making me look good!

    Keegan Seafood

    Thanks Tom, Everything was delicious last night with plenty of servings for everybody! The most popular item was definitely the platter with the smoked salmon, shrimp and scallops. Kevin and I also thought that both of the meat dishes were very tender. The rice was full of flavor and the sauces for all of the dishes were fantastic. The variety of the seafood sides was a nice touch as well. We will be happy to serve as a reference if you need us to do so
    and will recommend you to our friends. I will bring the dishes back Monday afternoon!

    Thanks again and we will be in touch with other events!

    Hi Tom The smoked seafood was a huge hit. As you predicted it disappeared early. I will bring the plate back in a day or so. Thanks again for the presentation.

    Just wanted to say I bought your Maryland style crab cakes yesterday and served them to my husband for dinner - they were soooo delicious! Thanks for having a great selection of seafood. Since the only meat my husband and I eat is seafood, it is nice to know there is a great place right in our own Anderson neighborhood to get delicious fresh fish. Keep up the great work! I tell everyone I know about you guys. I'll be in for some shrimp soon for a low-country boil I am putting on at my work.

    The grouper was outstanding. I really love baking the fish in the salt crust. People just get the biggest kick out of seeing that method. My guests were all gathered around the counter joining in peeling the crust off and getting the meat off the bones.Very fun and the fish is so moist and tender. I heard my neighbor, Nobbi, stopped in and got the sea bass.  He grilled his and said it was also delicious. He would be a good customer to have. Thanks for all your expertise.  Your store is a gem. 

    - Mary

    Tom,

    I just wanted to say "Thank You" again for extending the discount you did for our charity/church lobster bake and the quality of the lobsters you provided. Chip was pleased as the cook and did an awesome job, and the guests (even those orriginally from maine) said some of the best they have had. As always, everything my parents ever get from you and we have had is top quality.

    Again - will promote and recomend you to all I speak with ...

    Thanks again for the help.

    Thank you for a wonderful afternoon and introducing me to wonderful seafood in the middle of the country. Who knew that could happen! After tasting your scallops, I can't wait to make scallops for myself. The flounder was delicious. I even had leftovers! I loved how easy it was to fix. The end product taste so much better then the time it take to create. I want to try Flounder with a dill sauce next. I am looking forward to coming in for some pork belly. I have fresh eggs that will pair with it perfectly. :) I'll drop by when I get home
    from California.

    Blessings,

    The shrimp, beef & chicken were delicious! The Bridal Shower went well. We had a good turn out, and she was surprised.

    Thank you for all your help.

    I stopped by your market for the first time yesterday and took home some scallops. I prepared them as you instructed. Oh My God!! Those were, by far, the best scallops I have ever eaten! Thanks for a great product. I'll
    be back to see you soon.

    Paul Williams

    PS I added some white wine to the "left behinds" in the skillet. Poured that over a side dish of pasta. Had another side dish of fresh asparagus from the garden. Outstanding dinner!

    Keegan Seafood

    Tom - Thank you so much! The fish was awesome & a big hit with our family for our Easter dinner. 

    I really appreciate your guidance & excellent service!

    I'm sure we'll see you again soon.

    Thanks again,

    We had a great time. I will get the word out about the gem you own. See you when it's time for scallops.

    Well my Sushi experiment was a success after all. I coated the Tuna in black and white sesame seeds and seared them like you suggested. Sorry the picture isn't very good I have terrible lighting in my kitchen and took the picture with my phone. Thanks for your help, everyone loved them at my house and at work. The Tuna was exceptional! Thanks again I'll definitely be back for more.

    They were very good. The shrimp dinner was outstanding. My wife enjoyed the change of pace from the normal "go to a restaurant" experience.

    Thanks for your help and suggestions.

    Tom,

    The amberjacke was fabulous! My husband loved it so the when you have it again please let me know. Will be in next Friday for some scallops, oh the black bean soup I bought was really good also.

    Shrimp was best ever. Everything else was superb. Thanks,Tom.

    Kathleen

    Keegan Seafood

    Tom, thanks for creating all those wonderful appetizers for our party yesterday. We had JUST enough food- only about a dozen biscuits leftover, and we probably should have had more shrimp! Got compliments on everything and several people mentioned having seen that nice write-up you got in the Enquirer a few weeks back.
    Do you want those plastic trays back? I could drop them off the next time I am up there. Also, I am going to need some sea scallops (the big ones) for this Saturday. Should I pre-order? I'll firm up our menu and let you know.
    Thanks again!

    Hi Tom,
    I took the smoked salmon Friday night to a party on a house boat on the river and everyone just loved it. I told everyone where it came from, they were so glad to know they can order it from you. The plate was clean before any of the other appetizers! Thanks so much! 

    Judy

    Keegan Seafood

    We loved the meals I bought yesterday! The seafood chowder was phenomenal - the shrimp was tender and sweet and just the right amount of cream. The cornbread was light and crumbly, as I like it.

    Please save me a serving of the sweet potato soup next time. I will call next week to check on it.

    Thanks
