Wonderful place to make a birthday special. After an amazing meal, the server surprised us with birthday pies. The candle was the best part to make the dinner memorable. It was picture perfect! Couldn't ask for anything more.

Perfectly cooked steak
Service is always great. No other location cooks their steaks as consistent as this one. Every time I go there my steak is cooked perfectly and I've never had a problem with overcooking like I've had at the Burnaby location.

Time to eat and update
Five old choir friends periodically meet to catch up on the news and enjoy a lunch together. The Keg was one of our best choices in the years we've been getting together. Although it's a 'steakhouse' we found there was plenty of variety on the menu. Only one of us actually had steak - a good one. The atmosphere was great for chatting and the service was great; we never lacked anything but we weren't aware of the waiter hovering over us too obviously. All in all, it was a great outing for the 'geezers'.
The Open Table reservation system ensured that none of us forgot our appointment together because there were reminders that we could circulate to one another.

What can you say
I make it to Vancouver couple times a year and look forward to The Keg. The Peppercorn Steak it a great choice.

Fantastic Experience - Mother's Day
Dropped by here for the Mother's Day special event, and I was blown away with the bold and delicious flavours. The food took a while to get to our table, but the wait was understandable (busy Mother's Day!) and worth it. The filet mignon was glorious - extremely succulent and tender. The oscar was legendary with the hollandaise sauce and perfectly cooked scallops. It made me beg for more! The tiger prawns were a tad bit chewy, though I would not say it is rubbery. I will take the garlic mashed potatoes over the renowned twice baked potato any day. Overall experience was superb! Portions were generous (the starter salad could serve as a meal itself), and service was pleasurable. You must have the Billy Miner Pie to end the meal!

outstanding; the only place to eat steak and the appetizers are delicious too :-)

Was a extraordinary experience.
Was a extraordinary experience. The attitude of the staff was very great toward us. Our special waiter was very professional and i remember everyone in our table mentioned it at the dinner. He was awesome, very helpful, energetic, no pushing, quick in getting what we wanted and always quickly available if anything come up.

Well priced steaks, compared to other high end places downtown. Excellent appies, good ambiance, although could be a little more quiet.

We had a table for 8 and we were handled very admirably. Awesome service and great food. Definitely a great night.

The Keg on Thurlow
This restaurant has excellent food and great service. I like the fact that there is digital cable television there.

Perfect Dining experience
We had the perfect dining experience at The Keg on Thurlow street. The friendly host and very lovely hostesses got seated right away at a table that was perfect for our needs. The lobster tails, prime rib steak and other steaks were tender and flavorful. Salads yummy too. Hot bread was complimentary. Our sever was prompt and helpful with a sense of humor. We have always had excellent service at the Keg. We got reservations due to the construction happening along Thurlow street and the rumor that The Keg will be moving to the Shangri la soon. For these reasons perhaps people think that the Keg is closed. It worked to our advantage as we got reservations for dinner on the same day.

After a long day moving furniture
After a long day moving furniture around we worked up a late night appetite and totally enjoyed ribs at The Keg. Service was fantastic.

Fantastic service and off-menu food
Our server was so enthusiastic and great, he played along with our group really well. One of our party ordered off-menu, the "Keg-o-Mega" which is a 24oz Prime Rib. The steaks were all great (I had the Bleu Filet), the drinks were kept topped up, and all the service staff were friendly and fun.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's a Keg. If you like steak then it is less expensive than Black & Blue or Gothams and good beef . I went because I had a gift certificate and have another so will go again. I have been going to Keg restaurants for almost 40 years and they have remained consistent over the years. The staff are friendly, the room is very dark, the food is delicious, the server was excellent. What's not to like when you are well fed?

Happy Little Ladies
Out service was wonderful, out server, an absolute delight and our food, delicious.

Took wife and 4 kids. Everyone in this restaurant treats you better than your family! Vancouver is a great city and this is a great restaurant. Excellent service.

Very good steak house
All the higher end steak houses are all the same to me, they are all good but....all the same. This one was a bit different in that it wasn't quite as expensive as most. And given that we were in Vancouver where everything is expensive this was a pleasant surprise. Also they featured a baseball cut sirloin that was really really good. Most people think of the sirlion as the poor man's steak but I think if cut properly and prepared properly it's the best there is. This was done perfectly! The service was a bit spotty, but it was late Sunday night and our waiter seemed a bit inexperienced. He dissapeared a couple times when he should have been around but not a big deal.

Went to The Keg for a date. Ordered off the lobster days menu, lobster was way over cooked and rubbery, steak was good. Excellent service. Definitely wouldn't order anything other than steak off the menu, seafood was very disappointing.

Party of four had a good time. One steak was tough, the prime rib was great and the fillets were good. Very friendly service. A good spot for a night out.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
cant go wrong with the keg
Good food, good service, and good environment, what more can you ask for.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
very good choice
We went there based on other open table reviews and were very happy with the service and food.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The espresso machine broke down when they tried to make our espresso. Our server apologized several times. Without asking they took our two desserts as well as the espresso and my cappuccino (which I got) off the bill. That was great and much appreciated. Very good service. The only thing I personally found annoying was three different people coming by asking how everything was. Once is fine, but three times... Good overall experience though.

From the hostess, server,
From the hostess, server, to the manager: most inviting, welcoming and engaging. Staff was very attentive and gracious to our needs.
Our entrees and appetizers were delicious. The special touches that the staff showed us just made for a wonderful dining experience. Thank you.

I would say consistent quality is the words that come to mind for this restaurant. They do a good job and we were entertaining some friends. I would recommend it to anyone who is in Vancouver or visiting.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Keg Downtown is a nice place to spend time with a special person and enjoy great food well prepared.
Service is fast and friendly.
I would definitely bring a date here.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just simply love it
Every time I come here, my wife and I are very happy with their foods and their above and beyond customer service. Truly outstanding.

Great stakes and outstanding
Great stakes and outstanding service. If Ruth Chris is a 10 the Keg is 9.5.

Combo prime rib & alaska king crab
Alaska king crab was delicious. Prime rib could have been better. Somewhat lacking in flavour.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
As we were celebrating the 16th birthday of my friend's daughter, I made a reservation for 4 of us at 6:30. We were late due to travel delays and despite it being a busy Friday night, the Keg staff were extremely accommodating and told us that would hold our reservation until we arrived. The place was very busy but the service was excellent and the food fabulous. They made enough of a fuss of the birthday girl without embarrassing her ;-).
I have not been to a Keg restaurant but will definitely return again soon.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Keg it works
The portion size is good
Staff are friendly but not in your face
The pricing is right
Food is delicious and served hot.
The Keg know how to run a restaurant thats why there are so many locations
Every dinning experience I have had with them has always been the same.

Great dining experience
Had always had a wonderful experience whenever I visited this restaurant and this time was no different. The service was excellent. The waitress was attentive but unobtrusive. The food was well prepared. The noise level is right as it gave the restaurant a happening vibe. All the staff were well-groomed and as a customer, it made me feel respected and it made me want to be there.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delightful dinner experience
We were looking for some prime rib in an area that specializes in seafood and found a gem in The Keg. Our waiter Shane was very attentive and helpful. The prime rib and wedge salad was outstanding. We highly recommend the The Keg for a memorable meal when in Vancouver.
9/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good Food & Fair Price
The only concern I had was the noise level is too high for conversation at the table.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
food are so good
Dinner was really good. But it was not perfect. Because although I asked to prepare surprise birthday plate, it never come. I wanted to celeblate my partner there, but I couldn't. That's why it was not perfect.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's a Keg
Keg is a great steakhouse kind of place. The menu is reliably good, if not particularly unique or spectacular--but you don't go there to be adventurous, you go there to have well prepared steak or prime rib. I can't say they do that great a job with lobster or crab, but since the original item is frozen, you can't expect much on that side. So don't have that. Have steak or prime rib and you can't go wrong.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was hoping to write a review. Had no problems with my reservations. Waited approximately one minute before the maître d led us into our pre-reserved booth.
Had a splendid time and the food as always was scrumptious!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service with a smile
Our server was outside of the normal channel for a Vancouver chain - he was older, very professional, and the best reason to go there. Food was good. Why does a great steak seem to mean horrible vegetables? Overdone, bland, lacklustre

Dining with Friends
What a great place to get together and enjoy good company, good food and good wine. The music isn't too loud, so we can sit and talk and catch up while enjoying a wonderful dining experience. The service is excellent and not intrusive. I highly recommend it for anyone looking forward to a great dining experience with friends.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Super friendly waiter
I cannot remember our waiter's name which I apologize for as he was an absolute delight! Funny, personable, and knowledgeable. Great service. The restaurant is a bit dark so we asked for a booth by the window and the hostess kindly obliged. I had the Terikayi Steak, medium rare, which was excellent - cooked to perfection!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
cool steak house
This is a large restaurant with lots of seating capacity, great for large groups, yet the low lighting is also pleasant enough for any couple's romantic dinner out. Decoration is the standard steak house type with a slightly modern flavour.
We split an order of a 16oz prime rib (medium-rare). That came with a side of fried onions, our choice of rice pilaf, plus ordered an extra side of mixed veggies. The quantity is HUGE, that both of us were stuffed after finishing every last delicious bite.
Appetizer is a serving of fried calamari for $10+, which came with 2 different sauces, a sweet and tangy one, and a slightly more spicy version. The calamari is a disappointment and I would not order that here again.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great meal, even better service :-)
Thanks - accommodating a vegetarian and a carnivore simultaneously - flawless!!
Our waiter was THE BEST!!
