Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I both remember coming here as kids with our families and still enjoy coming here now. This is one of the few restaurants that has stood the test of time in a very competitive Victoria market. Awesome service and fantastic food!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The 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!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "First 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!"

  • "Haven'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.."

  • "We 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."

  • "My 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."

  • "When 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."

  • "Its 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."

  • "The food & service was good - the lighting could be better - Will go back again for sure...."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The 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. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Good Service, but the food was not up to it's usual standards."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "My 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!"

  • "For a long time Canadian Chain, they have remained surprisingly quite current. Menu is great for foodies as well as the Meat & Potatoes types. Big portions and the service was the best in the entire 2 week length of the vacation in Victoria. Well done. Enjoy!"

  • "We went out to the Keg as we know we get great food and great service. It did not disappoint us. I was even surprised with a complimentary 'famous' Billy Miner Mud Pie to share with my family. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Service was good and the food excellent, but the seating could have been better. Table was near a little stairway to the kitchen, so the wait staff were constantly bustling by and there was there was often a sound of dishes clattering. This wasn't a particularly busy night, so I'm sure there was no need to use that table."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Food and server where great. However, I had barely just finished my salad and they brought the entree. I felt rushed. When I said something about it, the guy in a blue suit and red tie shot me a look that was disturbing. Will probably choose other places to eat. For that kind of money, I want to enjoy the dinner."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "The food was good as it usually is, but service was not the same as we are used to. Perhaps just an off night."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "The space is nice and comfortable ... it's quiet and lit nicely. The service was good no complaints but the food was the weak link ... the asparagus was woody not a really big deal but the steak was fatty, grisly and tough. Not how I remember the Keg at all."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The service was outstanding as always and the food was amazing. Love dining here!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "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!!!"

  • "We come to the Keg for all our special occasions...food is always top notch and the service is always great make reservations as restaurant is usually busy most nights."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "Always a great get together place. Dine around Victoria fitted right in. Food always yummy, love the steak oscar. Blackberry martinis and Caesars always a hit. Great birthday, Will return again"

  • "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...."
