Three things I love about this place:
1 - Best mushroom soup ever - a must try if you've never had it. An appetizer only available for lunch
2 - Very good steak salad
3 - Rickard's white beer on tap

excellent food so so service
I have been to the keg quite a few times and usually it is a great all around experience. The food was great but the service was so so this time

Perfect for a late lunch
When we arrived the restaurant was full and quite loud and full of energy and I worried about being able to hear the conversation. However since we had a later lunch reservation (12:45) in about 15 minutes it cleared out and was very quiet which was perfect for having a conversation and not losing your voice. The meal was lovely and they were able to accommodate a restrictive diet and got everything spot on. Everyone in the party seemed happy with their meals. They were quick, efficient and polite. Would definitely go there again.

Steak was the best I've had in a long time, melted in your mouth.

Stampede Outing - Dinner
Had a great meal, was quick too considering the Stampede crowd made it busy.

Great food but you're in darkness..
Had dinner here a few nights ago on a trip over from the UK. I had bacon wrapped scallops and a bleu cheese filet steak. My partner had the same main and the baked goats cheese to start with. Can't fault the food - it was excellent. Our server (whose name I have forgotten!) was a very nice guy but seemed to have too many tables to deal with and so was a little slow but we weren't stranded drinkless or anything!
This place also has the best looking waiting staff in all of Calgary - it seems to be staffed by models which was a nice distraction for the evening too! And these guys and girls must eat a lot of carrots as the walk to the table was like being led through London during the blackout! I have never been anywhere that dark,

Piña Coladas !
Lovely patio on a nice day - with the added benefit of being one of the few places in downtown Calgary at which one can enjoy Piña Coladas!

The Keg in The Westin is different from the rest around the city - great decor and consistently decent food. Business crowd for lunch and drinks/early dinner means that this restaurant has to be on its toes. Food came out a bit slower than usual, but overall, still very acceptable.

Service was very good, I ordered
Service was very good, I ordered the steak and lobster for lunch. I should have asked the waitress if the lobster was out of the shell, it cam out completely in a shell and was a real chore to get the meat out of the claws. I probably left most in the claws. Other than that, I have lunch at the Keg often.

Great Food, Poor Table
Food at the Keg is always great! However what disappointed us on this occasion was we booked in advance and got a dreadful table. We were stuck right at the back of the restaurant with no outlook and beside the walk through to the kitchen. It was noisy and busy with staff going by all the time.
Also I hate when you walk in to a restaurant and you're greeted by several members of staff, there were 4 people at the entrance all asking us how we were etc, we'd just walked in from bright sunlight to complete darkness so it took our pupils a minute to adjust, too overwhelming.

You can always depend on The Keg for great food and service!

Great for lunch
Booking on Open Table makes it easy - great location in downtown Calgary with lots of parking choices - even in the middle of the day.

The 4th person joining our party was very late due to a family emergency. The rest of us had already ordered and when she finally got there the waitress managed to get her meal to her at the same time as ours. Great food, great waitress, excellent service.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Keg rarely disappoints.
Once you know that their medium is like the medium rare you do on the BBQ you're in good shape. Lobster tails are looking a bit plumper lately too.
I miss the baked Brie appetizer which was excellent has been mysteriously replaced by baked goat cheese contrary to public opinion. Anything goat isn't a taste sensation in my opinion. Baked Brie though - yum! (This is a hint to bring it back).
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waiter was Jeff. He was amazing and made the evening what it was. Our wine glass was never empty and his attitude and level of service was 5 star! The food was great, our table was private and quiet. Thet facilitated my accessibility request perfectly. Next time we are in Calgary, we will be back for sure!

Kegs are Kegs. Can't disappoint
Great food but both times we were there they forgot the bread.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was the Keg, prime rib was great, out of the chain restaurants I prefer the keg.

Great anniversary experience for us. Got extra service from the staff and manager that made our visit memorable.

Excellent Food and Service
This was our second visit this summer and this restaurant did not fail to impress. The food was served quickly and it was delicious. There was a mix up on the order for one of the dishes but it was picked up by the waiter before serving and the manager came by to apologize and set things straight. This will definitely be one of our regular restaurants. The value for our money is very good.

I met a Chicago friend here for dinner - v handy as she was staying at the Westin. I'd been bragging about Alberta beef so we both ordered the bleu cheese filet. Scrumptious, perfectly cooked and just the right size. Giant chunks of garlic in the mashed potatoes delightful, asparagus steamed just right. T he only thing was the presentation was..... kind of empty on the plate. But delicious!
I will return for sure.

The Keg is always a safe choice
The Keg is always a safe choice for lunch - the service is great, the food is good, and I'm never disappointed.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Offers the standard Keg fare. The wife loves the escargot, so we go to the Keg quite often just for that. We are very dissapointed that they've changed their sourdough bread recently, the old one was way better! This location has the best atmosphere over all the others in the city, and great lounge that's very popular for groups to meet at after work. Service was a bit lacking on this visit tho, as our server seemed more interested in socializing with another table, and rarely came around to check on her other tables.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the Bellini to the coffee, and from the appetizers to the desserts, our meal was fantastic. Everything was delicious, and the service was friendly and very well timed, no rushing at all! A wonderful experience.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was almost perfect, the only issue was my steak being a little over done likely because I ordered it Chicago style which is difficult to get right, I still enjoyed it though. The twice baked potato is excellent, texture and flavor was perfect. Our server was very good, she kept a close eye on us and made sure we had everything we needed.

Good food ... Missed prompt
The food and service at the restaurant was very good.
On the Opentable web application, it asked for special requests or recognitions (I do not remember the exact word).
I wrote on there that it was my son's 15th birthday dinner. No gifts or even cakes were expected, but it would have been neat for the waiter to even acknowledge the day.
It would be good practice to make that type of information known to the servers.

The Keg is always consistant a great place for a meeting or a meal. This location is perfect for a business lunch with great food an service

Decent food great service
Went here for our anniversary and the atmosphere was nice and energetic, decor was beautiful. Had the crab, lots of meat in the legs but had a slightly fishy taste. Probably frozen vs fresh. Veggies were great, ribs were good. Our waiter was amazing, attentive, funny, not overbearing. Overall a pretty good place.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Keg is our go-to downtown restaurant when we visit Calgary. We always havs consistently delicious meals! The restaurant always seems busy. Service is terrific. Always a great dining choice for all appetites.

Loved they keg but...
I always love the keg, but i have to tell you that maybe you should write in your training policy for servers to smell fresh. I had a server that was great but I could smell B/O (under arm stink) every time he approached the table. It somehow makes the dining experience less than pleasing.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Got off on wrong foot
Server didn't know we had been sat... It happen,,, manager came. Looked after us, great food, meal, people.

4th Ave Keg
Although our dinner was mistakenly brought by the food runner to the wrong table, increasing out wait time, the server and manager more than made up for it with service. They immediately notified me and my date of the error, and went to great efforts to ensure we were happy with the service, including offering a free round of drinks and free dessert.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The shrimp app was dissapointing, I was expecting big shrimp like 10/20. The crab cakes were a little dry and not a great value. the rest of the meal was great.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank you for making my Birthday dinner a great success!

Reason to come back
As a native Calgarian I first started going to The Keg and Cleaver (remember that?) in Brentwood. 30+ years we still go on a regular basis. Never have I needed to send a dish back. Always excellent and service over the top but not hovering.
We would go even more if the menu was more accommodating to family members who have become vegetarian. The line chefs have been creative however when the waiter/waitress is informed.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Easy to make reservations, great server, really good food. Only thing I found weird was you only get one side, I think all meals should come with a vegetable and then your choice of side. So we ended up ordering a salad to start along with crab cakes plus our entrees and we ended up full afterwards, but the entree alone wouldnt have filled us.
Restaurant had a nice ambience. .

KEG downtown is one of the best places for stakes. We were very pleased with service (as usual), our main course was great (each of us ordered stakes), we liked our mushroom soup as well, though it was a little over-salted. Overall experience was nice - thank you KEG.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and i ordered the tiger shrimp and the crab cake appetizers, they came out quickly and left our table quickly. They were amazing!
