    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/1/2014
    We were disappointed with our meals, with the exception of the salad- great caesar salad. One baseball sirloin steak was cooked right but was tough and lacked flavor, second one was extremely overcooked (ordered Medium) and lacked flavor. Definitely not the "melt in your mouth" steak the waiter described. Quite disappointed.

    Went to The Keg for Denvers Restaurant Week but when we arrived we couldn't resist the full menu and decided to order off of that instead of the special one made for the occasion. They were out of prime rib for the night which I will admit was disappointing but it didn't surprise me as this is what they are known for and was a special on their restaurant week menu, but they were very considerate with the situation and it made the problem cope able. Not to mention their Manhattan was by far the best I have had! Definitely made it on my list of places to return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    I feel like The Keg is a hit or miss restaurant. The first time I ever went was during restaurant week where I ordered a filet. I wasn't overly impressed and didn't have plans to return, but then my friend asked me to accompany her for her birthday. I ordered the baseball steak and WOW! was I impressed! It was thick, full of flavor, juicy, and cooked exactly to my request. The house salad was big, fresh, and bursting with flavor. Those two things, alone, were enough for me to want to return. When I went back for this year's restaurant week, I had a similar experience to my first. The food was just...meh. Nothing to write home about. The baseball steak just didn't knock my socks off. Not sure if I'll go back, due to the inconsistency.

    Another great meal; the best in a long time. Wedge salad, probably the best Prime Rib ever, twice baked potato and Mango Creme Brulee. My son had the baseball sized Sirloin( it was huge) with Grilled Vegetables and Brownie w/Ice Cream. We probably had 7-8 employees take care of us throughout the meal. Brooke served us and was great. The next time we come back I will be asking to sit in her section. The entree's were delivered by the Kitchen Manager. Several other servers and assistants helped too. The Front of House Manager was walking her beat to make sure everything was up to snuff. If you are looking for a Great meal in a fun place with Great service, it's the downtown Keg..

    The garlic shrimp were rich and decadent. The baseball sirloin was incredible. They don't even have steak sauce on the tables because there is no need for it. My steak was cooked perfectly and the garlic mashed potatoes were divine. I was too full to truly appreciate my brownie with ice cream, but it was quite good as well. When we mentioned to Tony that we were pressed for time due to parking meters and the show we were headed to, he expedited getting our separate checks to us and running cards so that we could leave quickly. That was much appreciated.

    I owed a debt to a friend - wasn't planning on actually doing the 5280 Restaurant week special but it was well worth it. Probably one of the best 5280 menu's on the list. The only complaint is that our service was not as good as expected. Had been there weeks ago and it was good - this time it took a while to come back to our table to fill up our water and brink requested items.

  • The Keg
    KITA
    Dined on 2/23/2014
    The Keg is a pleasant experience. The wait staff is friendly and kind. My only disappointment was when my food arrived it was lukewarm instead of hot. I tried to eat it but could not and had to send it back. The manager was apologetic and only offered to pay for a glass of wine for me instead of my meal. That was disappointing. I know that they could do more to earn my business but choose not to and that's unfortunate. In today's economy where everyone provides the same things the Keg should be trying to stand out instead of blending in. At the end of the day it will only be about the service you provide. Warm food is a big deal and taking off the price of a glass is wine is more an insult than a compromise.

    The food was excellent. We all (party of 7) ordered either the Baseball sirloin or the sirloin Oscar and there were no regrets. The "real" meat eaters in our group practically "inhaled" the entrée. Appetizers and dessert made for a well rounded meal. We also had our six month old granddaughter who just jabbered most of the evening and the noise level was sufficient to not be an issue. The service was also wonderful. Attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. One of our group ordered a dark beer. The waitress poured the beer and upon setting it down realized that she brought the wrong beer and immediately corrected the situation. Impressive!

    We went for Denver restaruant week. Our waiter was very nice and explianed the menu and his recommendations. The prime rib was delicious, cooked perfectly. I noticed they didn't have moscato on their wine menu. I asked the waiter if they had any (sometimes its not listed on the menus). I was surprised that they didn't, so I ordered an iced tea. Our waiter forgot my iced tea and I had to remind him. He apologized and stated that the drinks were on the house. Other than that, its a nice restaurant and great food.

    This was my first visit to The Keg Steakhouse & Bar. I was taking advantage of the menu offered during Denver Restaurant Week. I ordered the Garlic Shrimp Cheese appetizer. I was expecting full sized shrimp. When they brought out the dish, it was covered in melted cheese. To my amazement under the cheese, the dish had five or six little petite shrimp. What a disappointment. I was also disappointed with the quality of my steak. I ordered a 12 ounce Sirloin. I expected that it would be so tender,you could cut it with a butter knife. When I sliced into my steak, I hit a muscle or a ligament. What a disappointment. It ran almost entirely through the whole piece of meat. The best part of my meal was the baked potato.
