    Booked this restaurant for dinner after seeing it has good reviews. We were greeted nicely cocktails and first course were lovely. Waiter was super nice throughout. But the main course was terrible- no one at the table could go past the first bite. Steak was chewy and salty, lobster was very salty and hamburger was very well done. You would have thought that after seeing all the food barely touched we wouldn’t have been charged fully but there you go. In addition when I made the reservation I mentioned we’re celebrating a birthday, but no mention of that. Basically slightly disappointed.

    The beff tenderloin was excellent! My son and I had Prime Rib medium rare and it was prepared perfect however we both were challenged by the dull steak knifes!

    Service was top notch with a knowledgeable, patient, and kind server. He really was as professional as they get. Sadly, that was where the evening shined. The rest of the experience was mediocre. The atmosphere was a bit stuffy and lacking for intimacy or energy (whatever one would desire for their steakhouse). The food was nothing to write home about. Simply your average steaks for my wife and I. Sadly, my daughters chicken was the star for the evening. It was juicy and flavorful. The steaks were not up to the test. Overall, this did not hit the list of Banff restaurants we will visit again but it was a delightful experience for a night.

    Our waitress was fabulous, no complaints with service. Food was great other then both my husbands and my steak were cooked not the way we had ordered. My husbands ordered medium well and his was rare, blood all over his plate. I ordered medium and I would say it was medium rare. We come to the Keg all the time and have never encountered this before.

    We dined at the Keg with friends and had great meals. The wedge salad was awesome, perhaps the best I have had ( I am 72 ). The prime rib, lobster, and New York steak were done to perfection. The twice-baked potato was terrific. You won’t regret going there!

    We ended up here due to another place, Miss Steak being super rude to my family and I in Banff Canada. I booked at The Keg and they sat us right away and the service was amazing, the food was delicious, so The Keg made our evening dining fantastic.

    The Keg restaurants has always been a go to place for great food. This Keg has never let me down. We took 2 young Czech hockey players there and they loved the food and ate everything on their plates for the first time in 3 weeks. All the staff was super friendly and seemed very happy in their work. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    IT was a hot day and evening and the air conditioning has not been working for a week according to our server. It was way to hot to eat and seated next to the window made it worse. We did try and appetizer but it was awe full and we just go up and paid and left. the restaurant was dirty and filthy as well. Our server did the best he could but there was not way he could try to overcome all the problems. this restaurant should of been closed and not operating deuce to the air conditioning issue and the windows did not have the handles installed so we could at least open a window. Our a bill came to $78.00 for 4 drinks and (1) appetizer. This was a shirt hole of of restraint and should not be one Open Table. . .

    Service was reasonable. Waiter knew the menu. The bottle of wine that we ordered was unknown to him but he came back to the table to ask about it after dinner. That’s the good news. We ordered a rib steak or maybe it was called a prime steak. Most expensive item on the menu. Not much flavor and, well, it was tough to cut. Maybe the hamburger would have been a better choice.

    Food was as good as we expected however we had ordered appetizers to be delivered before our meal. Our salads arrived at the table before the appetizers so we had to set our salads aside until we could finish the appetizers. When booking we had indicated it was for a birthday celebration and but no mention was made by the server and nothing special was provided for the celebrant.

    I have booked this dinner over a month ago to celebrate my boyfriend’s and my birthday. I have been looking forward to this day as it is a special day for both of us. We brought my sister and her boyfriend to try The Keg for the first time. The waiter was VERY RUDE. He kept rushing us to order which I didn’t understand why. I asked him if he can take a picture of us and he declined saying he can’t touch my phone for covid protocols which is understandable, but how come other fine dining restaurants would gladly do it? But ok. How disappointing it is to spend $350 there and just have the waiter THROW the receipt in front of us, didn’t even say thank you!!! Loved the food but WILL NEVER GO BACK IN THIS LOCATION!!! NEVER THOUGHT I’D BE UPSET SPENDING OUR BIRTHDAY HERE.

    After missing out on local reservations we decided to hit something we knew for quality and we were not let down. The attentiveness of our server, Denise, was phenomenal. She really went above and beyond to check on us at every passing whether it be drink refills, bread restock, appy tasting, or even more butter for the lobster. She was a delight. The food was cooked perfectly, as expected, and we left full and happy.

    We booked a reservation at the Keg to celebrate our three year anniversary. We have been to the Keg many times for special occasions and they always do something special for us. We were very disappointed with the atmosphere and the food. No one did or said anything to us, very disappointed...just felt like every other day.

    Service and food was great! It is clear this location is organized and delivers on The Keg standards. However, the location is very old and out dated. This location needs renovations to create an atmosphere that matches the beauty of Banff.

    We had steak and lobster, but found the food to be pretty average. The lobster was tough and the steak was chewy. Not worth the money in my opinion, especially when there is many other places to eat in Banff, that have higher ratings.
