- An event, like always.wmcduffDined on 10/15/2014The Keg is pricey, but excellent. Thick steaks, tasty sides, well done accompaniments, good atmosphere. Too much to go every night, but fine for a celebration.Special Features:
- Great service, pricey foodsanchoDined on 10/9/2014The most outstanding element is the service. Other restaurants should send their waiters to take courses at the Keg. The steak was excellent taste-wise, but side items were just two - a potato and a few green beans - sort of simple and lacking fantasy. I seems the chief dealing with the steaks is a great pro, but the person who decides the side items needs to learn more. I liked the posters on the walls! Overall only the prices will stop me from coming again.
- Huh?SeniortastetesterDined on 9/28/2014Poorest quality prime rib I have ever had in 45 yrs. of dining. Nowhere near the standards I would expect from the Keg. The food here is deteriorating every visit. Only thing I enjoy is local fresh produce dishes :(Special Features:
- snowfall1Dined on 9/20/2014My husband and I had not visited the Keg for a few years, and we thought we would try it again. WOW!! we had an awesome dinner !!! Everything was perfection, from entering and being escorted right to our table to the impeccable service we received. The ambience is romantic and comfortable, the wait staff was great, and our dinner was presented in classic style. Thankyou, Keg !!! we definitely will return. The food was delicious, exquisite prime rib dinner. 5 Stars plus two.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DecentOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/20/2014Everything was top notch except the green beans and the potato I had were a little over cooked, not so much that it was not enjoyed. Portion sizes for vegie and sides a little small. Everything else was greatSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hit and missJaguar1962Dined on 9/6/2014We went several month ago and the food was excellent ! come back for our 5 anniversary and the food wasn't great as the several months ago . really disappointed , the service was excellent , nothing to complain about it My beer was flat , the keg was empty , no more Heineken , not really into local breweries The Au jus tasteless , the 16 oz rib eye chewy no flavor ( the silver skin) still attached to the meat So the whole experience with keg was disappointing. it is going to take me sometime to digest this experienceSpecial Features:
- Great food!FoodieMomDined on 9/3/2014I was impressed how family friendly it was though I think a little more thought ahead for the hostess team could have been good. We booked through OT and mentioned having 2 small kids with us. We arrived a few minutes late and they clearly knew what table we were going to right away, but once we were shown the table it have huge steal knives all over that my kids could have easily grab be and the high chair and booster were not ready so we had to wait and scramble a bit upon arrival to move all things that our kids could have damaged or hurt themselves with. If you get the details before the table should have been ready accordingly. Server Jordan was great and up sold us well, and the good was perfect and quick.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Dinner in VictoriaAllanDined on 8/30/2014We had the lobster special and the steak special. It was a great meal with salad to share, and some great side dishes which we could both share. This was a good alternative to the more touristy downtown Victoria, with Ample parking. Advice setting a reservation as this is popular in the neighborhood. Not much window view, and inside is a bit dark.Special Features:
- First Night out in a long timeAnniversaryWorthyDined on 8/30/2014It was our anniversary dinner and we had not been out without the kids in a long time so were looking forward to our night out, maybe we were a little picky since we had not been out in a long time. Dirty wine glasses, asked for new ones. Husbands drink was made with bourbon and not gin like he asked. Ordered an appetizer that was not even delivered. When host delivered our dinner we asked about it and he said that he would look into it. It ended up coming 10 minutes after our main course was finished. Thought we might receive a small discount or complimentary appy but in the end we had to pay for both the messed up drink and the missed appetizer. $150 Bill Next time we will go somewhere else for our 1 night out a week.Special Features:
- Good service but noisyNoisyDined on 8/30/2014Good service but noisy making it difficult to hear.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- food & service & table location repnezzyDined on 8/29/2014we have been to the keg many times over the years like to go there on special occasions etc this was our anniversary dinner so we went to the keg service was great, table stuck up against a wall retainer. but most of all we both ordered steak & lobster which was one of the specials. lobster was stringy & steak was terrible. very disappointed this time. will be a while before we go backSpecial Features:
- kids menu4fordinnerDined on 8/28/2014A little disappointed with the kids meal, as they ordered their meal, they did not get a veggie appy, as we seen other tables with kids and they received a veggie appy and we did not, we have in the past.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- CurlyDined on 8/16/2014One of the meals was incorrect but server admitted it was her error and it was corrected immediately and they could not do enough for us to make it up. Excellent meal and serviceSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Everything was great!IslandEaterDined on 8/13/2014The food was great, the service was great. Very good experience! They even recognized it was someone's Bday dinner and gave them a dessert present! Totally unexpected and it made the evening. A Keg night is always a good night in my books!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- KegKegAug11Dined on 8/11/2014The food was good but one definitely needs to be a steak eater to enjoy it. The service was excellent! Our server was attentive, friendly and personable and made sure we were well attended to but didn't annoy us with his presence.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Still awesome!thekatDined on 7/29/2014My husband and I both remember coming here as kids with our families and still enjoy coming here now.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/24/2014The server was excellent - he ensured my wife would not have to struggle with her lobster (which she had been looking forward to for weeks) not like the place in Port Moody!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome experienceAwesomeDined on 7/20/2014First came here 30 years ago and well known for their steaks. Lobsters featured when we dined so extra treat. Our wait staff was exceptionally efficient, polite and took the time to explain the menu well. Love the fresh baked sourdough and twice baked potatoes..... Will be back soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- New visit to the kegBaysinerDined on 7/11/2014Haven't been to the Keg for a couple of years. Decided we needed a nice diner with friends. Our server was excellent. The young lady that greeted us and took us to our table was charming. The steaks were excellent, the prawns were cold and overdone , the veggies were undercooked. Overall not bad, but not as good as I've experienced in the past..Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/11/2014Food and service were good, yes would recommend for all occasions.Special Features:
- so-so this time roundOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/9/2014We come to the keg a lot for special occasions (this time being my birthday) but this time I found the Lobster Manhattan was a let down :( The sauce was very salty. The appies were fantastic as per usual.Special Features:

- Celebrating my Mom's 84th Birthday.MamaspecialDined on 6/29/2014My Mom and I always celebrate our birthdays together and her favorite place to eat is the Keg. She is a very hard lady to surprise, but we pulled it off. We got dressed up and picked her up, told her we were going for supper. When we arrived at the restaurant ,we yelled surprise!! She was surprised and excited. We enjoyed a beautiful dinner, with great ambiance and a special dessert. We appreciated the Keg treating us to a special birthday dessert and extra flare. It was a beautiful evening shared by all. We thank you for the fantastic service, wonderful food and a great evening. It is one of our most favorite places always to eat and have fun with the family.Special Features:
- THIS is a SteakhouseStarfleet56Dined on 6/25/2014When you want the best steak in town, this is where you go to get it. I had the Blue Cheese crusted Fillet Mignon cooked Blue Rare, my wife had the Manhattan New York Medium Rare and our son had the Pepper Steak Medium Rare and they were all PERFECT. How often can you go out for dinner and all of us are so happy with our meals? Not as often as you would think. We have not visited the Keg in years and this was a special occasion for us. We will be back soon.Special Features:

- Grassfed beef???OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/22/2014Our server did not know if you had grass fed beef. Wake up You should have the option I think now a days Awesome desert for my birthday and nice poulet à la créole. Would try the other one in Victoria if you have grass fed beefSpecial Features:
- great birthdaybirdieDined on 6/21/2014This is the second time I brought visitors to Victoria here for dinner. The waiters are amazing. Very polite and thorough explaining everything.

- Dinner at the KegarldDined on 6/15/2014Great service, delicious food, only complaint was the table we were seated at. Along an aisle with people rushing past constantly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The KegdustytrailsDined on 6/11/2014Its Keg and if you eat here as a regular you know what you are going to get. Good food. I usually give it higher marks, but this time for some reason on a Wednesday night and not totally crowded, it took our main course a little long to get to our table. We ordered King Crab. Between the time we ate our stuffed mushroom caps appy to getting our main course was about 35-40 minutes. Unusual not have been given an explanation from the wait staff on the delay. It would have been nice to hear from the staff the reason for our wait. We had been joking our meals must have been ordered in from Alaska that night. Otherwise the food was really good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- nocookingtonight55Dined on 5/25/2014The food & service was good - the lighting could be better - Will go back again for sure....Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SassyDined on 5/23/2014The food was great. The Keg usually under cooks their steaks but this night they didn't. We had ordered based on how we usually find their steaks to come out so that was the only disappoinment. We ordered medium thinking it would be medium rare and it was really medium.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good, ButNextTimeDined on 5/22/2014Good Service, but the food was not up to it's usual standards.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Service, Great FoodDrewbertDined on 5/20/2014My wife and I went here for our anniversary. Our appetizers came quickly and we're awesome! We both had steak and lobster tail. My wife had the Baseball Sirloin which was quite under in the middle which is understandable considering how thick it is. She said other than that the taste was really good. When we told our server she was very apologetic and actuall came back with a huge free desert for us! We had a great experience and would recommend this restaurant to anyone!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
