Diner Reviews
  • "Not sure why we can never be sat @ the time of our rezy. But liquids spilled on people, and 3 occasions os glasses breaking at other tables made the night VERY entertaining. Our server was great as I had a few refills, and I did not wait long for them despite the restaurant being busy."

  • "Rib Eye steak was so great and the baked potato was outstanding. The service rates among the best in the city so I will go back fro sure."

  • "We went to The Keg on Quadra st. on Friday evening (April 11). After we were seated we had to wait about 6 or 7 minutes before a server came to our table asking about our drink order, but by then we had already decided on dinner. Our food came quickly and was excellent, but it took a while for the staff to clear our table when we were finished. After waiting for about 10 minutes with an empty table our server came back and just left us a desert menu, we wanted our cheque, but she didn't give us a chance to speak before rushing off. After about another 4-5 minutes she came back and we asked for the cheque, then waited another 5-6 minutes before it came back."

  • "This restaurant is pricy. Had the prime which was not warm almost cool not really impressed since this is one of the things they are suppose to specialize in. I have had much better prime rib at half the cost and it comes with the ceased salad, gravy, Yorkshire pudding and a better vegetable select. We'll it will probable be another 20 years before I go back. Maybe. Noise was not elegant, it was so noisy I could barely speak to my wife without raising my voice."

  • "Service was slow. The two guys with the same name that served us couldn't get us drinks fast enough. Thank goodness the bar was just downstairs. Almost every guest headed down there to get their own. Everyone loved their dinner, and the kitchen was fast! The food once again saved lack lustre service. The birthday girls dinner was wrong. But the kitchen fixed it quick. Would have been nice if our food wasn't auctioned off, but we were happy to eat. Our table wasn't ready on time, so next year we are doing take out!!!"

  • "I took my husband to the Keg for his birthday. We really enjoyed the baked shrimp appy. The ribs were also very good. My husband received a free dessert for his birthday. Location is good, parking is ample. Service was very good. Price was decent. I made a reservation on-line the same day, so couldn't get the time we wanted, however, it was within 45 minutes. Had not been to the Keg for a while and won't wait so long to go back next time."

  • "The knife I got for my steak was almost completely dull, and the one I got to replace it was not much better. Overall, the food was delicious, although I wish that they had had creme brulee."

  • "I like the atmosphere at the Keg in Saanich. The staff are unfailingly polite, and I was impressed with the wine list too. We tend to come here more and more because the food is consistently good if sometimes hastily presented. The Sirloin Oscar was a little chewy this time, although very tasty. As well, the Bernaise Sauce was not as plentiful as it should have been. Otherwise, the salads, dessert, and the entree I had on my previous visits, (3 altogether) have all been excellent. I found it extremely helpful to use the Open Table, and we didn't have to wait for our table on arrival. One final thing to add to our happiness ? The plentiful parking!"

  • "We came here twice during the annual "Dine Around Victoria" event. Both times we had excellent service and the food was delicious. The Dine Around menu presents excellent value and the Keg doesn't skimp at all on the size or quality of the menu items it includes. The only complaint I've ever really had about the Keg is the small amount of vegetable you get included with your meal. The standard is two or three strips of red pepper and some steamed asparagus. As I like neither of those veggies, I ask for mushrooms instead. Still, it's not much volume to balance out all the meat and potatoes. Of course, you can order additional veggies at extra cost. Great service at this Keg location: the staff are always attentive and outgoing."

  • "The meat was very tough, two prime ribs and one sirloin. Our appetizers, dessert and wine were very good as was the service . We would only recommend the Keg for appetizers,dessert and drinks...."

  • "The service is perfect. Every detail has been calculated and is taken care of. The food is prepared to perfection, very clean and 10 out of 10 delicious."

  • "Went for the Dine Around dinner and were very impressed with the quantity and quality of the food. The mushroom soup was delicious and a large bowlful. Caesar salad was fine but a bit bland. Both of our steak meals were excellent and cooked to perfection. Had to take some home to make room for dessert. Desserts - cheesecake and Billy MIner pie- were also excellent. Will definitely go again next year! The only minor negative was the service. It was exceptionally busy for a Tuesday and perhaps because of that the service was a bit spotty. eg. I had finished, and shared, my salad by the time my companion's soup arrived. Otherwise, the server was very pleasant."

  • "Despite how busy it was that night, the waiter was very fast and efficient and the food came quite quickly. The waiter knew to serve us (which there was 3 of us) but he also had 4 tables of 10 people per table to serve also, and thank goodness he knew to get our order in first. The dinner was for my birthday from my husband and daughter and unfortunately my son couldn't make it to join us. So a few days later he came home to take me out for dinner for my birthday and i chose the Keg again and again the food was fabulous the service was excellent. Good Job to the staff at the Keg that served us those 2 days, will definitely go back."

  • "We went for our daughters birthday because she loves the billy miner pie our res was for 5:30, the restaurant opens at 4:30 however they were out. We picked the cheese cake but that tasted like frozen yogurt gone bad! it was free and we still didn't eat it. To top it off 2 spoons were stuck together not washed... that's when we called it a night . It was gross! Our server was cam and he was really nice."

  • "I think u should re-invent the salad bar and baked potato bar of the early keg days. The wait staff should be provided with the same attire, clean white shirts, funky ties and cool aprons....instead they looked a little sloppy and disheveled. The dinner was good however it could be so much better...just an observation...tell Mr. Aisenstat. Ha ha"

  • "Service was amazing. My only complaint was we were seated right by the entrance to the kitchen and there was a constant flow of servers up and down the stairs, which made it rather noisy. Since we were one of the first tables to be seated on New Year's Day, I would have expected a quieter table. Also, my daughter's meal was fine, but my steak was gristly....not what I would expect from The Keg. I probably should have sent it back, but that's not my character."

  • "It was a really nice dinner for a special night. The food was excellent, service great the the staff made it more festive. Surprisingly they had a super special menu for a very reasonable price, which we didn't expect that evening. Worth every penny."
