    We had been really looking forward to this dinner as it was our anniversary. So we had pretty high expectations already. The night surpassed those and was absolutely perfect. We felt special and very taken care of by our waitress Amy and the manager (I think) even stopped by our table in his rounds. The food was perfect but for the keg I think that is pretty standard. It really was the service that made the experience wonderful. We will definitely be going back and recommending others to go. We definitely understand why the keg has such a good reputation.

    The dinner experience was excellent. Appetizer was tasty and just enough. Food was the right temperature and the portions were perfect. Recommend the Billy Miner Pie dessert be shared ..lol. Service was prompt, polite, courteous, well dressed, and eager to please us. I would direct all my out of town friends to eat here anytime and not be embarrassed. Well done Keg!!

    my wife was not happy with the prime rib she ordered, the server was happy to replace it with a sirloin steak and even the manager came to apologies for that and to our shock we were not charged for the prime rib, actually i questioned that and ask them to add it but they refused, never experience such a good service before, also the wine list prices was very resonable will be back for sure thanks

    The Keg really out did itself, I went for a special date and the service and food were good. It is pricey so it's not someplace we would go every week but for a special occasion, definitely the place. I also saw that they had a group room, so I am thinking about a group event.

    I've already sent a review. Do you need two of them? Had reservations for 5:30 pm and at the entrance we were told to choose any table we wanted. Sat at our table and waited and waited and still no waitress. Finally my husband got up and went and interrupted 3 of them that were just standing there talking together. They were debating which one would take care of us. Finally got one of them to come over and get us drinks. Very poor service. Food was great but the wait for service took forever. Who knows how long we would of sat there if we would not have asked them to serve us.

    We were very disappointed in our food. It wasn't fresh, like it was left over and thrown back on the grill. The garlic mashed were luke warm and lacking garlic. The bread was hard as a rock. I had the prime rib. What I got was a huge hunk of meat, like a steak. Not what I expected. Service was excellent!!

    We joined the Keg staff for a birthday celebration and it was phenomenal. The food was incredible, as ever, and the atmosphere was friendly and inviting. We were given the option of where we wished to be seated, which was a rare opportunity, but ultimately decided to go with the dining room. Hands down the star of the evening was our server. I believe his name was mike. He was beyond personable and a very affable young man with knowledge and manners well exceeding expectations. He truly is a professional fit for the Kegs standards. We will definitely be back.

    Very busy but - sat at the bar to wait on our table - short wait. Bar staff exceedingly helpful and friendly. Got our table10 min. after our reservation time which was great. I had the prime rib burger which was outstanding ;and my husband had the ribs - they were so good and tender and had a great sauce. Noisy and bustling but that didn't bother us. Would go back again and would recommend it to our friends and family!

    Very nice place to dine. Service was good, food was AMAZING, and the atmosphere was nice. Things were a bit loud in the dining area and tables were close to each other. The patio area looked astounding but unfortunately it was a little too Chilly outside to sit there. We will have to try this section out another time.

    Dined on 7/27/2013
    We were a party of 8 and the dinner for 1 of the guests was wrong. The staff had to remove and never said what happened. We had to wait and wait for the correct order to be cooked and brought out. Everyone else at the table was almost finished. The waitress never offered any type of compensation. Another meal, prime rib was very stringy and we didn't want to complain because of how long the first incorrect order had taken. This was not the usual good meal at the Keg.

    We had a 5 pm reservation... We waited almost 1.25 hrs for our steaks.. Which were way over done... We rarely saw our waitress at all... We were then brought our bill 2 times by 2 different servers... Which we thought was very funny considering the rest of the time we saw no one... I think that this restaurant is way over priced for the quality of food and service that you get

    We had our reservations at 6:30 and didn't get our food until 8, very disappointed. The food was good but cold, didn't complain because we waited to long to get it. Far to expensive (128.00) to have "warm" food brought to you after such a long wait. Waitress just kept apologizing but to me the food should have been discounted.

    The service was amazing! Our waiter came by just enough to make sure that we had everything we needed at all stages of the dinner. The food was excellent. The steak was cook to perfection! We took the waiters suggestion and he did not steer us wrong. The view from the bar of the River was beautiful! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice night out.

    The service and food are top notch here. That's why we keep coming back. I had the Summer Sangria with my meal, and it was the best sangria that I've ever had at a restaurant...usually restaurants put so much fruit in the glass that there is barely any sangria, but this had the perfect balance. Looking forward to our next visit!

    Dined on 6/30/2013
    Always a treat to go to the keg. The steaks are perfect, the salad's are wonderful. Nice ambience. The only complaint I had this time, is that my wife and I asked for a quiet booth which they granted us. However, a few minutes later, the same hostess brought by a family with very small children that were complaining and crying. The entire restaurant was open for tables and she brought crying kids next to a couple sipping wine? The keg isn't for kids anyways, when you spend $80-$120 per couple for a nice dining experience, the last thing you want is crying kids next to you. Leave the kids with babysitters, or go to McDonalds with them. Our kids stay with babysitters so Mom and Dad can enjoy their night out. Same courtesy back pls.

    The dinner was good...the steaks seem to be getting smaller though....(one time the child's menu steak was bigger than the adult portion....I thought they got the plates mixed up!....but the manager sternly denied it....everyone else at the table could see the difference!) The only issue with this location is if you get stuck in a spot with not much of a view! Overall, it was good and I would go back, but I will request a better seating area to enjoy the views.

    This was my first time eating at the Keg, Windsor. I've been to their locations in Toronto many times and have always had good experiences. Everything from the food to the service was exceptional at the Windsor location. Their concern for quality was evident, when the general manager stopped by to check on us...and most of the tables around us as well.
