    The oldest surviving Keg in Canada. The usual good quality food, supplemented by friendly and attentive service. I decided against the crab special when I heard that it included legs to be broken open ( probably a highlight for some but not for me), our server agreed that it was better to eat your food rather than fight it! The steak I had was first class .

    My girlfriend and I have been here couple times for our date nights. Both times, the service and the food were excellent. At our last visit, we had a new server named Stew? (I believe). He was very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place.

    We heard a lot about the Keg and were eager to try it. My wife is allergic to peppers and was very sad to find out they season all of their steaks with pepper. They said they could cook her one on an area they had not been using, but you can't get around the pepper. So she had crab legs. I had a filet, it was good, but you could taste the pepper. We have been to a number of steakhouses where no seasoning was needed to bring out a great steak taste. The sides were fine. Can't really hurt a baked potato. We did not have desert or drinks.

    Glad to find a Keg where you can reserve a table in advance in such a convenient manner. Warm welcome with friendly staff who new their work. Food was superb and measured up to Keg standards across the country. The garlic mashed potato was not as hot as we requested but was taken back for re-heating in a friendly accommodating manner. No rush to get you through and out for the next group. Menu was very predictable but good.

    This experience at The Keg was marked by two notable things. First, Alex our waitress, went out of her way to make sure everything was attended to perfectly and promptly. Second, the food was plated beautifully and cooked to perfection. This evenings experience was worth every penny and more. My last experience at this location was underwhelming, but I have to say this experience was worthy of a four diamond restaurant. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Everything about my visit to The Keg was outstanding. Had a wonderful water view and our waiter was terrific. Had the filet mignon which was out of this world! I would say it is one of the best meals I have ever had. Only problem is that I don't live in Seattle so will probably be awhile before I can eat at The Keg again! I highly recommend this restaurant!!

    I've had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant for over 35 years now and I have never been disappointed. While much has changed over this time frame in terms of the space, layout and menu - the food and atmosphere remain top notch. We took advantage of the "Dine around Victoria" promotion and I opted for the $30 menu choices. Ceasar salad to start (dressing was a little too heavy), pecan and goat cheese crusted sirloin for my main and Billy Miner pie for dessert! Aside from the dressing, the meal was perfect and a great value. I was very pleased to see that the portion sizes were NOT reduced as we have found some at some other dining establishments during this promotion.

    Firstly, even with a reservation we waited 30 mins to be seated. It all seemed so disorganized. Our server was awesome!! The only good par to the night... Food came out badly warm and wasn't great (wasn't bad either) I would try going again maybe when they weren't so busy. For the price I expected more....

    This promotion was a great deal. A three-course meal for $30 or $40. We found it a lot of food, but having been to the Keg previously, knew to order two meals for four people. It was plenty and we were stuffed. Food was excellent, steak and prime rib cooked exactly as we liked. Calamari was very good. We found it expensive and went becaues of the promotional weekend and a gift card.

    The only thing better than the food is the service. We love The Keg and it is our destination for every "date night" , which with 2 kids under the age of 3 at home doesn't happen as often as we'd like. We had another wonderful experience at The Keg downtown Vic.

    My wife and I really enjoy dining at the Keg, so much that we probaly dine there approximately 4 or 5 times every year. We went to the Fort Street location thie New Years for a 5:30pm sitting. As always, the consistency of the food was spot on, quality of service (our waiter) was fantastic. I understand the concept that the Management/Owners are trying to accomodate to get as get as many tables through as possible. I believe our waiter told us that there were approximately 600 reservations. You could definitely tell that it was not the normal Keg Dining experience that we usually receive. We felt just like a number and not a guest. Our bill $140 approximately, we would have hoped that our whole experience was a little better.
