    We have come to this Keg location many times over the years. We unfortunately we're all disappointed with our meals. My prime rib was overlooked and dry and the others who ordered the filet mignon was also dry and lacked the tender and juiciness from previous years. Not sure what happened but, was disappointed.

    I looked up restaurants near the Caesar's Windsor casino to have dinner at, which was close to the casino too. I found The Keg online and checked it out. It really seemed like a good spot to go before a show at the casino, with a good menu, but it was a great spot to go with a great menu! The food was superb, but honestly, the service I received, friendly, attentive and right-away-when-ready, was just excellent! The next time I'm in Windsor, I will make a point to come back to The Keg just because of both the service and the food!

    Our latest dining experience at the Keg (Windsor's Riverside location) was outstanding! We enjoyed celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary in a romantic setting. The steak and lobster were cooked to perfection and the wine was delicious. Our server was very friendly and efficient. We were surprised with the complimentary anniversary dessert. What a nice touch!

    Great experience as always. Sat outside on the patio. It was wife's birthday. She had French onion soup which was fantastic. I had shrimp cocktail and Caesar salad...both always great. Her basebal sirloin was cooked perfectly as was my Chicago-style striploin. We had a great meal with perfect ambience.

    Every-thing served was good, but I go there for the prime rib supper, and have this one complaint to have you follow up on. The prime rib was done as requested, medium rare, but there was a tremendous amount of unnecessary fat and trimming To me this should be looked at very carefully and spend a little time trimming each meal so that it will look good as well as better value for the beef lover as I am. From here on I will be looking very carefully to see if anything would be changed as to improve this fine piece of meat. Joe

    We had a reservation via Open Table and walked right in at our stated time. The staff was pleasant and all were very attentive. The food was very good and consistent as always. We had asked our server to make this a relaxed dinner as we had plenty of time prior to catching the concert. He did oblige and the pace was very good. I would like to give a shout to our server Mike as he did an excellent job and the first time someone was so appreciative of a tip that he actually shook my hand. Great job Mike and The Keg as usual!!! Next time we are in the area we will be sure to have another dinner at the Keg.

    Yesterday evening, my wife and I had a late meal at the downtown Keg. It was our first Keg experience. The dim-lighting contributed to a very low key and relaxed setting. The food was made to our specifications and it was as tasty as we expected. The best part, however, was the excellent service provided by Tina; her positive and bubbly personality added a very fun (yet professional) element to our dinner. I will most certainly return to the Keg in the future.

    We dined here on a Sunday evening to celebrate our anniversary. The location was ideal- very close to our hotel and across the street from the river. The restaurant itself had a nice ambiance. When we arrived, our booth was ready as requested and we were greeted with a 'Happy Annuversay' wish from staff. The food was amazing from start to finish as well as our complimentary anniversary dessert! Will definitely go back again on our next trip to Windsor.

    It may be a chain, but the Keg simply has really good steaks! I am always looking for a great place to go for steak, and I should stop looking and just always go to The Keg. The bar at Riverside is also great, vibrant and fun. The service in the restaurant isn't up to the standard of the meat, and not all tables have the same ambiance, especially if you have a bigger party. But always worth it for the food.

    We came for dinner before going on to Caesars to see a Santana concert. We were a little apprehensive about time constraints but never really had to be worried at all. We got our table right away and our server was excellent, courteous and quick and the food was as always just the best! We sat bar side and had a nice view and it wasn't noisy at all just pleasant. We didn't feel rushed and were able to complete our meal in a timely fashion and get to the concert on time! As always, wonderful!

    Have been to this Keg multiple times and it is one of our favourites, however we were disappointed on a recent Saturday night as our experience felt rushed, like our server couldn't wait to get us out the door and seat the next table. Our server was inattentive and we sat with empty drink glasses and weren't even asked if we wanted another. She even came to pick up the cheque before we even had the chance to get our wallet out. It was a Saturday night and quite busy, however we were in and out the door at Mach speed, which made it feel almost like a fast food experience!

    Extremely disappointed with our table. Even though I made reservations we were told that there were no tables available and were sat down in the doorway. Each time someone came up and down the stairs they walked right into us. I would have been happier to wait an extra 5 minutes to get a table where we could eat in peace. It is situations like this that makes me never want to go back and I never do. I also found the staff at the front desk completely unprofessional, acting like they were more interested in having their own conversations rather than paying attention to their jobs. We had to explain ourselves twice as to who we were and both times were greeting by surprised faces (same ones both times). Will never go back.

    The food is superbly cooked and the staff from the greeters to the waitress (waiters) to the food movers - everyone is AMAZING!! We have had the pleasure of being served by Amanda and have been requesting her (which we get when she is on shift). She is very knowledge, pleasant, fun and so good at her job !!! We just adore going to this restaurant and then the cake is having a waitress of such high caliber !!
