A traditional New York Oyster House. KEE Oyster House is brought to White Plains by three friends with a love of food, family, and friends. The idea was born with a desire to bring New York’s oyster history back to life with a thematic focus on the Prohibition Era.
Westchester residents, Kenan, Ekrem and Elvi are staying current by introducing modern culinary trends while remaining true to history on the half shell.
They have created an atmosphere with a warm ambiance inviting you to experience its unique bar program and sophisticated spin on American regional cuisine using only the freshest ingredients.
Smoothness of service, breadth of menu, quality of food, size of portions and the enthusiasm of staff will make the job of eating an enjoyable experience. The sophisticated, yet casual vibe, creates the perfect setting for a new White Plains dining tradition.

Had a wonderful meal. The blackened tuna was especially great as were the oysters (Wellfleet!). Service was also excellent.

Excellent oysters, as usual - we typically do eight per person (four types, two each). The tuna was very well received and the soft shell crabs (two as an entree) were delicious. The room was initially noisy - but - quieted down by 930pm. Wines by the glass (Muscadet, Sancerre) were enjoyed. Service was attentive.

We had the soft shell crab as an appetizer (it was one of their specials) they were tasty but pricey. My spouse had the halibut and it was literally swimming in olive oil (an unusual presentation we thought). I had the seafood risotto (I thought that it lacked enough seasoning). Overall we were a bit disappointed with our meal. I admit that we didn’t have any oysters, which other reviewers have praised as being delicious.

Food was excellent! However the soft shell crab that was a special was sooo small a portion. It should be an appetizer. Other than that it was good.

Tables spaced apart nicely. Valentino is a personable, professional, and knowledgeable waiter. Drinks were delish and came quickly. Oyster assortment fresh and varied. Soft shell crabs were prepared creatively and were delicious. Will return!

Soft shell crabs were in season so gave those a try. They need to be done/presented properly to work, these were a "B". Way nice assortment of east coast/west coast oysters. Seemed really fresh. Drinks were good but pricey given the place. Nice place for oysters and a drink, but not exactly destination dining.

First time dining here and I wanted to like this place, but I wasn't impressed at all. The food was so-so, not worth the prices they charge for it, and nothing to rave about. There are so many other seafood restaurants in Westchester that literally blow this one away. The bar area was a nicer space than the main dining room. If I ever go again, which isn't likely, I'll sit at the bar. On a positive note, our waiter was friendly, professional and attentive.

The food and drinks were good. The service was very attentive. We were seated promptly. The waiter explained the specials and was very helpful in choosing gluten free foods for my wife. We sat in a back room which was quiet. The front of the restaurant was more bustling and noisy. I would go back.

This is a great seafood restaurant in White Plains. I had a delicious meal. The salmon fish tacos were delicious and the grilled shrimp. Be careful parking is a challenge and you need to feed the meters until 9pm which is annoying. Both my friend and I got $25 tickets when we got out because the signs are not very clear.

The food is very good. The restaurant is attractive. The noise level is pretty awful. There was a large table of people and they drowned out the room the entire time. It was hard to carry on a conversation with my husband. Perhaps a back room could be given to a group next time so that all the parties might enjoy themselves equally.

Overall, the experience was okay. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful and peaceful. However, the food and service was subpar. We had reservations at 8 pm and didn’t receive our appetizer until 9 pm, even though the restaurant was not busy. The oyster appetizer was pretty good but the main meal was lacking in flavor and quality. I ordered the seafood risotto, and the shrimp and squid were rubbery and bland unfortunately. For a 4.6 star restaurant, I’m just surprised we were served baby shrimp... I would maybe give this restaurant another try but most likely not.

Our party of 3 LOVE raw bar and went to Kee in anticipation of some awesome oysters, clams, lobster, crab etc. We were not disappointed.
Our very attentive and patient waiter, Jay, took his time explaining the menu, offering suggestions and keeping on top of drinks. We were seated in the lovely back room. Food was absolutely fresh, delish, plentiful and impressive.
Apps to dessert - just fantastic.

We enjoyed our dining experience tremendously. The food was delicious!!! The only thing i would say is to tell the customer that the martini comes with blue cheese olives! I cant eat that but lesson learned for me to always ask! We will be back for sure. It is rare to find a place where the food is so good! I would however possibly have some security walking around outside b/c the neighborhood can get sketchy later while walking to the parking lot.
