    My boyfriend and I dined at the Keg in Granville Island on Saturday night. The service wasn't good and either was the food. It seemed to be a common theme in the restaurant as the management were constantly dealing with the tables around us and their issues. My boyfriend's twice baked potato was so black I teased him asking if he ordered a blackened potato. We usually enjoy the Keg but we definitely didn't this time!

    Impressed with the menu and the service-but way too many stairs to reach our table. I had made reservations early, and when we arrived we were taken around the corner to a 3 level staircase. I stated this is NOT good for older diners. I was told the ground level fills up fast (and way louder). Love I could make my own meal with soup, salad and steak. REALLY loved they have a small dessert selection for $3 each (or 3 for $8). Next time, will make sure they have lower level in my reservation request.

    The Keg never disappoints. They are great at what they do and that's serving an amazing steak. It's never going to be a culinary creative adventure but if you want a wicked steak, they are your guys.

    The staff at the Keg were fantastic. My girlfriend and I were both extremely pleased with the food as well, but the service is what really stuck out. The manager and the server were both very available, helpful, pleasant, and had a good presents around the table. When our food was slower than expected the manager personally came over and talked to us, and when the meal came made sure it was also up to our expectations. Very fantastic experience and we are definitely coming back.

    From our entry to our last touch-point, the staff were attentive and friendly. We purposely drove out of our way to GI because we were able to make a rezo. The Keg 10 min from our home doesn't take rezos which is annoying especially when you have children. We were hesitant because this is an older location but we were not disappointed and had a wonderful family night out. This team was ON for this Sunday evening. The dining room was packed but we never felt neglected or forgotten. The food is standard Keg fare- not much changes for a chain resto. We ordered a side from the feature menu and it wasn't great- we left it but didn't mind as we had a good experience overall. Will be back to this Keg for sure.

    We were there to celebrate a birthday, and had a great meal with those prime rib classics, and that billy miner pie is a must-have (the mini desserts were the perfect size too). The service was memorable, and overall a great dining experience. The noise level was a little on the loud side, but we still had an enjoyable evening. Thanks!

    My husband & I had the prime rib. Both were done perfectly medium rare. It was OVERALL a lovely dinner. Our server Aimée took care of my concern with the asparagus right away. It was wilted,yellow and extremely OVERBLANCHED!!! UNFORTUNATELY second time wasn't much better except it was a little greener BUT still OVERBLANCHED!!!! It was SHOCKING to us because we have ALWAYS said that The Keg has such high standards when it comes to their meat. Surprised that it actually was allowed to leave the kitchen and be served to me on the plate as an edible & appetizing vegetable.

    Dined here to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and I had a major craving for the Keg's prime rib. Food and drinks were prepared wonderfully, as usual. Service was a bit on the slow side, but was great, when we got it. Noise level was a bit too loud, due to one particular table seated near us. Found that we were unable to hold a conversation, with others at our table. Overall, had a great time and was well treated by all staff that we encountered. Love, love, love the mud pie. Looking forward to the next excuse to visit!

    We went to the Keg because of the unfailing excellence of their food and service, and in this instance a reservation, and they performed in flying colors! They even undercooked my wife's steak and immediately took the plate away and in a very short time the Manager returned with a complete new plate and deleted the cost of the dinner without prompting. EXCELLENT!

    My guest and I order two different steaks ... New York and Sirloin ... the New York was order pink "Warm" and came almost well done and the Sirloin was over done as well. The vegetables supplied were minimal at best. This is two strikes against two meals. I will never go there again as we were both very disappointed.... and No ... we did not complain to the manager ... we were hungry and did not want to wait for steaks to be re-done. Suffice it to say ... I do not need to pay the prices we did to have a steak cooked incorrectly.

    This is best place for prime rib (med-rare- soft and delicious) and lobster (buttery, delicious). Appetizer escargots and hot fresh bread so delicious you need to have second's. Desert creme brûlée nice and crispy topping, smooth creme inside slides down throat nicely. Waitress very friendly and prompt service.

    I came with my sister who was visiting from China. She and I ordered a 2-pound lobster each and were extremely happy about it! The lobster was perfectly prepared, succulent and tasty. I have had lobsters at other Kegs before but never had I filled myself up with just the lobster. This turned out to be the perfect introduction to my seafood, particularly lobster-loving sister! The other dishes were also quite good. My nephew was happy with his classic teriyaki steak and mashed potatoes, as well the Caesar salad was appreciated. He is normally not into salads but this one he enjoyed! The service was very attentive and friendly. All in all we had a great evening out.

    at your favourite friend's home. The ambiance is always the same at The Keg, and I am not saying that because I used to work at the original Keg and Cleaver in the 1970's. Comfortable, good food and sometimes noise levels that punctuate it all! Overall, good value and quality. However, just one thing... When a section is completely full, maybe service with your waiter may suffer or be delayed!

    Let me start by saying that the waiter was really great. Top notch. But the food is mediocre, the restaurant is dark which helps hide how tired the decor is. Basically for a place that prides itself on steak and lobster, both those items were really subpar. At these prices, you can do so much better in this city. I won't be back.

    All future celebrations are going to be held at The Kegs!! Service, by Nathan & Derek (trainee), was outstanding and the food was so tasty. Had a problem with one of the entrees, which was too spicy and was immediately addressed by the manager, who offered another replacement entrée. We were very well taken care of and made to feel that our patronage was very much appreciated. Sure wish this location was closer to home, so that we could visit more often.
