Great Dinner, excellent waitress
I was a bit disappointed when we arrived 17 minutes late and was told by a very uncaring person that our table was given away; unknown to me, their grace period is only 15 minutes, new to Victoria, we had trouble finding the place and parking. Couldn't they call us? I let the phone #. I had requested an upstairs table by the window on the water side, we were given a small table on the side street. The service was excellent and so was the food, so that made up for the unfriendly front of the house staff! We were luckier than some patrons, as two or three families brought very small children and I felt sorry for the people paying a lot for dinner to listen to children yelling, crying and banging things on the table,

We live in Campbell River
We live in Campbell River and don't have a Keg available, so we enjoy coming to Victoria and dining out. The Keg is always very consistently good! We lucked out with a window seat as well, on a lovely night. Thank you for a great night.

The dinner was excellent except cucumbers and red bell peppers in dinner salads should be replaced with red Bermuda onions and sliced tomatoes. Also, prime rib au jus should be replaced with an au jus mix like Lawry's or McCormick's.

great night out!
From start to finish we had excellent service. The steak and lobster that we had was perfect. It wasn't a busy night so we got a great seat up stairs by a window with a view over looking the harbor. I would absolutely come back again when I'm in town.

Very good experience
From the phone call through to the bill payment, the staff were always attentive. They were flexible and helpful when it came to customizing dishes, and the steak was really very good. Had the fillet mignon medium-rare. Importantly they gave garden salad instead of Ceasar or 'wedge salad', and the portion of vegetables was generous - an important factor of a really good meal.

Notable Improvment Over Last Visit
We were very pleased overall. Clayton our waiter reached out to be sure our dinner was everything to be expected. Service was prompt and polite. Considering the number of guests, the kitchen produced our meals cooked perfectly and reasonably quickly. I am pleased to recommend The Keg; I do suggest reservations - you can use Open Table App on your iPhone.

My husband and I wanted a meal that would take the guess work out of where to dine. Can't beat the keg. Pleasant staff and great service. Food was great too! I requested an upstairs harbour view booth. Perfect for our Friday date night!

Fantastic as always! The food was typical Keg excellence! and the Service was top-notch.
We had a wonderful night !
We love The Keg. A few of us have had the pleasure at eating at Keg restaurants across the country and they are always a great experience.
My husband and I always choose The Keg for our date nights and are never disappointed - we love love love the baseball steaks and the red wine list. And for Ladies night out, we always choose The Keg because we always have a wonderful, fun time....great food, great atmosphere great view, and the service is always wonderful.

I had made a special request for my hubby b'day and they gave us a real nice table with a great view plusa huge cake at the end. Food was excellent as always. Our server was really nice. Our food came on time and there was no birthday singing by the staff...pheww!!

Great view for a great Night
Thank you Keg for a fabulous evening. Seated where we were able to watch the Habour action at sunset. Celebrating our anniversary where we had many dates back in the Eighties. Still a go to for a special evening out.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful, as always
Its always a pleasure to dine here. Food and service is consistent and dependable. We took some important customers here for dinner... they loved it. Thanks again to the staff for assisting me in getting a view table. See you again next time!

The Keg is always a favorite choice for our "adult" children as a birthday dinner choice. We can always count on great food and great service. Whether we go as a couple or as a family/group, we consistently enjoy the Keg.

A very enjoyable experience
We where greated by the lovely staff at the door,which sat us at a great table over looking the bay.
Our waiter was friendly and explained the menu. Our meal was exquisite and our experience was grand. Thank you.

We had a wonderful romantic dinner. A really enjoyable experience.

We had a party of 8 that included 3 kids. Our waitress, krystin s was amazing.

Best Beef in Town!
I have gone to the Keg several times, mostly to celebrate special occasions. The steaks are out of this world and always cooked to perfection and the twice baked potato is the way to go! The overall experience always exceeds expectations!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to the Keg to celebrate our 35th anniversary while in Victoria. Our server was excellent and actually got our order right....we had the lobster specials.....and then surprised us with a complimentary dessert! Also we had a nice view of the harbor , from the second floor of the restaurant,which is in a downtown older building that has been redone. Overall a great experience!

This was my second time at this Keg and I enjoyed the experience. The food was very good and service was great. I liked the idea of a new wedge salad on the menu.

Overall I had a really good time at the Keg, but at times it
Was hard to get our waitresses attention re: cold food
We do however understand that it can get busy.
Overall pretty good

Great Anniversary Dinner
My husband and I chose The Keg Steakhouse to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Everything was perfect! The food was delicious. The atmosphere was romantic. The service was helpful, but not overly involved (i.e. let us eat in peace). We had a wonderful experience and would go back in a heartbeat.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really happy I came
Been to the keg a few times before, and have been seated in a few different areas. The upstairs can be pretty lively with large groups, and its sometimes hard to have a conversation when it's busy. Really appreciated the quiet area on the right side of the first floor. Beautiful harbour view as well. Both me and my parents felt very lucky to be seated there.
Our server was upbeat, approachable, and informed about the menu.
Thank you very much for a wonderful experience! I will be sure to add The Keg to my list of recommendations to both friends and visiting guests.

Outstanding (as always)
You can always count on the Keg to deliver a delicious meal and great ambience.

Love this restaurant!
This is our favorite Victoria restaurant - something for everyone. We've been there twice while visiting from Seattle. Food has been consistantly very good and the prices are good too. Service is friendly and attentive, without being pretentious or obsequious. The place is filled with people having a good time. It's a great break from the bland cruise ship food if you are there for the evening. Look for the waiter with the blue eyes!

Keg never disappoints
Our server Spencer was excellent and had a great sense of humor. He knew the menu items well and made great recommendations. Would return on our next trip to Victoria Very friendly staff in the restaurant and lounge.

We had a window seat in the upstairs room, with a fine view of the harbour. Our server was delightful, friendly and helpful, suggesting alternative combinations without being intrusive. The waiting time for food was surprisingly short. After a starter of prawns and bacon, my wife had the Keg Classic and trimmings, which she couldn't finish. Fortunately, we had our grandson with us, and after polishing off the child's six ounce Sirlion, he hoovered up the remainder of my wife' s steak, and still had room for desert (just!). I had the prime rib, which, in spite of not being an avid meat-eater, I found delicious.

We had a server called Maddie.
We had a server called Maddie. She was absolutely fantastic. Keg has a real gem in her! Wow! Our food was delivered perfectly prepared as ordered and the presentation was beautiful. It tasted delicious. I have been going to the Keg since 1998. My wife is fairly new to Canada (almost 2 years) and she could not stop talking about the food and the servers.
This experience just reinforced why the Keg has been one of my favorite places to go to over the years. And still will go there again and again!
Loved you guys and the whole experience was just magic!

Although it seemed kind of expensive, we had a very nice dinner and great service. Would strongly recommend this restaurant.

Amazing steak and lobster combo!
We recently had the opportunity to check-out The Keg after reading great reviews and we weren't disappointed. The food was superb, the wine was delicious, and our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. This was a rare 'date' night for us as busy parents and it was just the treat we needed. I'd recommend requesting a window booth as it was lovely to watch the world go by whilst enjoying great food and an excellent ambience.

Jason and Kristi Stone
We were engaged at the Fort Street Retaurant and we returned for our first wedding anniversary where we were able to have the same table :) Our server, Kyle A, was great. Very friendly and on point with all aspects of our experience. We also enjoyed a lovely dessert as a surprise bonus to our meal, which was amazing!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Keg is consistently good and this one lives up to that reputation.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
the classic Keg experience..
It is one of our family's favorites..and I enjoy the Wharf street location the most. Our waitress was amazing !!
The food came out quickly and the presentation was fantastic !!
My groom and I celebrated our nuptials 39 years ago at the Keg on Granville Island and the restaurant chain
has never disappointed us through the years !! Great food and a great group of servers...
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
When I go to the Keg, I know what I am going for and I'm never disappointed. Great steakhouse food. From the beginning the Keg has always had an upbeat vibe that made it a fun night out. The downtown location has that vibe. Unfortunately, the Quadra Street location does not seem to have that energy and this is reflected in sometimes poor service.

This Keg Has Class
This was a first-time dining experience at the Fort Street Keg. As we were from out-of-town, it was convenient to make an on-line reservation. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. The server was excellent - friendly and knowledgeable but not intrusive. Both my sister and I have an aversion to rare meat, so we were very pleasantly surprised when our perfectly cooked "well-done" steaks were just that. Overall, it was a lovely experience. Even the very large celebration party next to us was not too boisterous. We were able to talk back and forth without shouting. Kudos to this restaurant. We'll be back! J & H

A night to remember
The Keg Steakhouse chain is exemplary for service and food and they deserve to pride themselves on both as we experienced exceptional service and our meal, especially the quality of the steak, was out of this world! The speaker for the music system was right above us and was a bit loud for intimate conversation. We had a booth upstairs by the window and had an awesome view of the Inner Harbour. Truly a night to remember!

We had a 7 oz and 10 oz filet mignon - both medium. The larger turned out to be more rare then medium. The waitress picked it up and returned it a few minutes later perfectly medium.
A little bit dark in the evening - we had some difficulties to read the menu - but otherwise perfect.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Couldn't have been any better. Meals, ambiance, waitress, timing. Despite how busy it was, your staff are helpful, professional, friendly and attentive!
We'll be back.
It was a great birthday dinner for my girlfriend !
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the Keg on Front Street. It faces Victoria's beautiful Inner Harbour has outstanding food and service. I travel a great deal and dine out frequently; hands down, the Keg has the best steak I have ever eaten! My wife and I dine at the Keg each and every trip to Victoria. I'll put it this way; we live in Forks, WA, and make special trips to B.C. just to dine at the restaurant!

Meals were tasty - service was great! We had a lovely booth with a harbour view. A very enjoyable evening at a fair price.

We had window seat, a good waitress, and a great experience. Steak was delicious, wife"s prawns were perfect, desert was verry good. Highly recommended.

I had a wonderful meal here.
I had a wonderful meal here. Originally the reservation was for two, but my date had to cancel due to babysitter problems. I had already seen your menu and was looking forward to it, so I decided to go on my own. I called to switch the reservation to one and nobody gave me a hard time about it. I felt very welcome, and I think I got the table with view I had asked for. The food was great(I had steak and lobster tail, as was the wine and dessert. The waitress was wonderful and always there when I was ready for he next course or anything else. A totally awesome dinner even though I was eating alone. I will definitely be back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always go to the Keg in Victoria when we get there. The food is always perfection, the service terrific and ambience is great. We will be back. Thank you for keeping up the standards so that we can always rely on your restaurant for a terrific treat!
