    3 people ordered steaks and they were cooked to perfection. Grilled chicken ordered as a add on was a bit dry. On the other hand, service was not up to par. 4 hungry people had to wait for at lease 20 minutes after being seated to get any service ... no even a glass of water ... we were not impressed.

    The prime rib had great flavor but it was tough. The twice baked potato was dry and the vegetables were lackluster. The ambiance was nice and the service people were very friendly and efficient.

    We had a corner booth with an amazing harbour view. the meals were great except 1 person ordered crab but they forgot the cracker and fork. by the time they found them, the crab was cold and had to be replaced. The service was on the slow side but guess that is to be expected on a long weekend Sunday.

    Food was good, my wife had recently broken her ankle, she could not do stairs, and it was seemed to have been a bit of a deal, made us feel uncomfortable, i get that it is a busy place, but to be able to make a switch for a 4 seating table up to down (which was done) without a hassle and making customer feeling like they created a problem, garlic toast was best i have ever eaten !

    I wasn't aware the Fort Street location had a second floor with a darkly lit staircase. Can be a challenge for some folks. I would make note when making a reservation next time to request a table on the first floor. But the view from the second floor was lovely...

    We went for our wedding anniversary (33rd) with our family. We had a really nice waitress who looked after us very well. Considering this is the Keg, we were disappointed with the food. Cold chicken, over cooked asparagus, rubbery lobster (during Lobster Summer!) you would think by this far into summer they would have figured out how NOT to make overcooked lobster...just sayin'. This is our third underwhelming trip to the Keg. We actually went because we had gift cards......probably won't bother again unless we have gift cards. Dining out dollars are a precious commodity in our world and can't afford to spend them on food that is not so great.Yes, the service and the setting was great, but at the end of the day its the food that we go for.

    Great service and food was good, but very expensive. I spent $260 for 4 people which included 2 appies which we shared, 2 drinks each, 4 entrees, no desserts + tip. Not a great selection of wine if you're buying by-the-glass.

    We went to The Keg for our Anniversary. We chose it because of the lobster specials for August. As usual, the food was delicious. Steak was cooked to perfection and we both enjoyed the lobster. Had a great red wine, escargot apply was delicious-as usual. We were too full for dessert! We requested a nice, quiet spot by the window-which had an amazing view of the harbour. Service was excellent. We had a wonderful time and will be back!

    Someone gave my partner a gift certificate to this restaurant, so we decided to try it out for his birthday. It was amazing! Our waiter was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, the food was beyond delicious (so tender! So flavourful!) and the opportunity to people-watch along the harbour is second to none. Will definitely be returning for other special occasions in the future.

    Tables too close together, too many staff standing around in the way doing nothing, our waitress was wonderful though. The beef was excellent - but for the price is it too much to ask for a potato AND a vegetable, a garnish doesn't count. Generous and delicious calamari appy.

    I have been going to the Keg since I was a child and went again the other night with old friends. The food and service is always so fantastic. I had Prime Rib, and, as always, no matter what I order, it was fantastic, succulent, and perfectly cooked. When I got the bill, and I was there for 6 hours with my friends, I couldn't believe how low it was for all that I had experienced. Great work guys. I'm so glad you are there.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    We were seated immediately after arriving for an early reservation - 5:00 pm. The table was for two at window viewing to the southeast. We ordered from two specialty menu items - Father's Day Top Sirloin with Caesar Salad and Billy Miner Pie (dessert) at $47 and a Dungeness Crab and Steak dinner at $32. Both were done to perfection. We had a bottle of Rosemount Estate Shiraz with dinner at $36. The waitress was attentive but not hovering and very sociable. She earned an $18 tip for the hour we were there. As we left we noticed there were many people waiting to enter - make your reservation early. The restaurant is on the second floor of the old corner brick building which probably added to the sense of being removed from the busy downtown.

    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 .

    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.
