Went for our anniversary dinner (10 years!). But, we were seated right next to a crying baby. We immediately requested a quiet table and they were happy to accommodate. We were seated upstairs in a quiet corner and we had excellent service all night. The food was perfect and plentiful, and topped off with a Billy Miner Pie gratis!
They've earned our repeat business for sure. We'll be back!

Service from the waiter was
Service from the waiter was good, but when our starter course was delivered by a young lady, she just slapped it on the table and walked away. She did say something to us briefly, but I couldn't make it out. That was a disappointing start to the evening. The food was OK though.

Other than our server constantly stating that everything, including taking away our unneeded wine list, as "perfect", our evening was, okay, I'll say it: perfect! The Keg makes outstanding food: the filet mignon with Creole shrimp and scallops was absolutely sumptuous. I also highly recommend the Mushrooms Neptune. They arrived promptly...piping hot on an oblong dish covered with crab and cream cheese. Yummy! The food arrived in a timely manner and the server was attentive to our needs. When my glass was empty, it was quickly replaced by a fresh glass filled with my favorite pop. All in all, The Keg is a culinary delight not to be missed.

special birthday visit
Overall our dining experience was good. The food came to us hot, presentation was great, my prime rib was cooked to perfection. Our server was very helpful and knew the menu well.
One negative......tables too close together, one doesn't want to be able to hear the adjoining tables conversation, and we didn't want them to hear ours.

Outstanding Dungeness Crab feast!
Great staff, delicious food, pleasant servers all combine to make this Keg location a reliable choice for excellent dining.

Had a pleasant date at the Keg. The food was great and the service was wonderful. Had a nice quiet area to ourselves so we could just enjoy being with each other.

I took my daughter out for her birthday, she is very picky and was pleased with every detail, I liked the small desserts, I didn't like that I had to pay extra for vegetables. Steaks were done to specifications.

There were 11 of us in our party and everyone enjoyed their selections. The food was well presented and arived ina very timely manner. The service was excellent and minimal waiting times were experienced between servings.

Good food and service
Enjoyed our evening. Reservations were for 7:15 and we arrived early. They had us seated by 7! Food arrived in a timely fashion and was hot and tasty! Service was terrific! I would spend an evening at the Keg anytime!

The Keg always delivers with
The Keg always delivers with a great variety of perfectly grilled steaks, and perfectly roasted Prime Rib. I have never been disappointed with their food and drink, although their beer offerings should be expanded to include local brews. We live in Victoria, and there are many great microbreweries that provide their brews to local restaurants.

Very Nice Dinner
The meat/choices are always good at the Keg. Both our prime rib & steak were wonderful -- cooked to perfection.

Another great Intimate Dinner
My husband took me to The Keg - Saanich for my birthday celebration. We have an 19 month old and we wanted a nice romantic place to go without him. We had a fabulous dinner, the service was great and since it was a Tuesday night it wasn't too busy so the noise wasn't too bad. Sometimes this Keg can get loud just because of the acoustics of the building, but we prefer it to the Keg down town. Thanks for making my intimate dinner with my husband a wonderful time for us both.

We had a great night, the server was wonderful, he knew when to show up with full drinks, the food was delicious, and the whole atmosphere was wonderful. We had a great dinner

I've always had a good experience at the keg, this trip was no different. Prompt service and seating. Waiter discribed specials and was attentive. Kids menu could use a couple more items but at least there was a kids menu.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy our nights out at The Keg. We prefer this location to the one downtown where we found that the food and staff were very different. The Saanich venue has more ambience and the staff if much friendlier. They also do not try to sit two older ladies in a booth in the corner in the dark!

Couldn't ask for a better restaurant for fantastic lobster and steak. Service was fast and efficient. Nice ambiance.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
To celebrate my husband's birthday a large near rare steak was just the right thing and the free, delicious Billy Miner Pie was an unexpected bonus for him.The Keg ambiance was still way too loud and crowded feeling to make it a 'romantic' evening together, but the food and service were good and consistent.

Night at the keg
Went out to the keg with family in from Edmonton food service was excellent and the food has always been consistently good over the years I have been going to this keg .Waiter was prompt well groomed and attentive,all in all a good experience.

Our grandchildren (12 & 9) along with their parents, joined my husband and me for his 78th birthday. Our meals were wonderful and our server was very attentive. We go to The Keg every other month or so and the food, atmosphere, and staff never disappoint us.

Great Service. Great Food.
Great Service. Great Food. Reasonable. Only drawback was where our group sat was a main serving artery so was cramped for the waiters/waitresses to get by
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seating 5 adults in a booth was crowded, but we managed. We ordered crab legs, the two steak items from the October feature menu, and ribs. The steaks were done beautifully except for the gristle; other meals were very good. There was a yummy special dessert for the birthday person. Service was excellent. Restaurant is not very accessible for anyone with difficulty walking as there are several curbs outside and steps/stairs inside.

Our Keg Experience
On a recent trip to Victoria we met up with friends at the Keg on Quadra. From the moment we arrived at the front door we were greeted by friendly, personable staff. Our server was lovely and gave us superb service! I hope I dont get this wrong - I believe his name was Samhail. Everyone in our party of 8 was pleased with their food. Drinks were good. The server provided complimentary desert in celebration of my birthday!
The price was reasonable for our meals. This is a good place for a get together with friends!

Keg remains consistent!
I recall when the "Keg" was called the Keg and Cleaver in the early 70's in Calgary and most evenings you could stand in line for 30 to 40 minutes to get in. 40 years later you can make reservations and the quality of food, wine, service and people are as good now, or better, than 40 years ago. Like a good wine, the Keg has improved with age. I've eaten add Keg restaurants all across Canada and I've never been disappointed.

Happy birthday dinner
We have been going to the keg periodically since our first date in 1982 and have always had a positive experience. The food is always top drawer, and so well served and prepared.
We enjoyed their famous prime rib and also the manhattan/crab and mushroom steak. The sides were great with twice baked potato and mashed. The asperagus and red pepper added some nice colour to the plate.
The waiters and hosts are welcoming and personable. We will continue going from time to time until we are too old to get out.

Good all around
There were 6 of us...4 adults with two boys, 14 and a 11 years old. We were all very pleased with both the food and the service. Two minor complaints only from the group - garlic mashed potatoes were a touch salty and some of the asparagus was a little stringy - otherwise we were happily sufficed and would go back in a flash.

The server Tara, was very efficient in the fact that she catered to our needs. Our appy's were brought out and were delicious, then a salad and she held off placing our dinner order, so that we could enjoy a drink and some conversation. When our main course was brought out it was fantastic. Then because it was my birthday, Tara brought me a piece of cheese cake. All in all it was a great night out. Would recommend not only the restaurant, but Tara was a true gem in her field.
