This was our third time eating at this location. Generally, we’re quite happy. However, today’s visit left me more then disappointed. I took my husband out for his birthday and unfortunately didn’t go as planned. Off the top, they took us on time for our reservation and the girls up front were so friendly. We got a great booth in a low traffic area just as requested which was amazing. But our waiter refused to acknowledge my existence which I’ve never experienced before. He’d come over and ask pat if he needed a drink refill but not me or ask how his dinner was and then quickly walk away. You’d think I did something to this guy in past life lol. It irritated me but whatever. When our food came (we both ordered chicken and ribs) his looked perfect but mine was way burnt, overcooked and super dry. I would of requested a new one but my waiter never returned to ask me how it was. At the end, he came back and asked Pat if I wanted to wrap up my untouched chicken and ribs. Again, asked my husband about my food... we spoke up and said it was overcooked which was obvious and he apologized. The manager quickly came back apologized and comp’d my meal. He was so nice and I appreciated him attempting to make it right. My waiter brings pat the bill, it’s his birthday so I’m paying—I tipped him about 20% even though it wasn’t deserved. He came back thanked pat and said “ooh, I love money!” And walked away. I was shook... needless to say. We likely won’t be returning for some time if at all.

Great meal in the new location. Very well organized on their reopening with COVID precautions in place. It is noisier than the Halifax location. Could use baffles on the ceiling, but not as hard to have a conversation as in many other restaurants.

Food was very good, restaurant clean, however experience very rushed. We’re unable to really enjoy our night out, as they has first food out 10 mins after we arrive. Had to ask them to slow down, felt like they were pushing us to eat and get out. After spending $150, we should have been paying our bill in 50 mins

Steaks were tasty good; cooked close to the order, but the meat/meal was not overwhelmingly good, but still verygood. Restaurant was packed...even by non-covid standards. Had a short wait and all booths are being used and only the free tables are being distanced. So pretty well packed. Service was very good, and menu and prices are on-line, so I will only add that I thought the selection and value was good. Noisy group of guys next door that used the Fbomb as all of their verbs; nouns; adverbs; adjectives....you've seen/heard the joke, so they were detracting/distracting from the atmosphere which is typical "Keg" and really nice, warm, and comfortable. The guys swearing likely weren't maritimers so it probably won't be a factor again...although....isn't the border with Upper Canada still closed? lol
Oh yeah and having a Keg in Dartmouth, and close to home is a big plus.

The food and service was excellent.

The time between the appetizer & meal was pretty quick. Better than too slow I guess :)

We were the 2nd booth in from the entrance and it was quite cold. Would have been nice to have it warmer in the restaurant while we enjoyed our meal.

We were there for a very special birthday celebration for my twin sons who turned 19. Waited for a month to celebrate with them as we are visiting them from NL. 2 out of 5 of our steaks were rare... very rare... server and manager agreed. They had to be recooked and replated which meant we did not eat together. My husband and son had to watch the rest of us eat. Then when my husbands steak finally came out - it was rare AGAIN. So the wait for his dinner continued. The server was inexperienced it seemed and overall a very disappointing meal for what we paid. They took the price of one steak off the bill. Not good enough considering the entire meal was a disappointment and no one enjoyed it as hoped.
We never ever had this kind of negative experience at The Keg before.

Food quality and presentation at the Keg is always dependable. Romaine lettuce used in the Caesar salad could be crisper and less of the outside leaves used.

I think there is better seating and atmosphere at restaurants like Moxie's but the Keg is good. Tables are too crammed together. My wife and I went on a date night and the only issue we had was the seating area was all very closely placed to one another. Otherwise the food and service was great. Restaurant was very clean.

I didn’t feel what we paid for our meal was worth what we got. I found it quite overpriced. Service was great, I loved the taste of my steak, I just would prefer to go somewhere else for what I paid. I’m glad I tried it.

Food was smaller portions then my last visit, just under a month ago. So to me, it was worth the price I paid. Had to wait an extra 25 mins for a table (but that was due to it being Valentine’s Day). Not my best experience at this location.

We have always liked the food at the Keg and enjoy going there. This was our first time over to the new Dartmouth location and we found the service and ambiance good and the restaurant itself was very nicely done. A couple of items worth mentioning though; I understand what they are trying to project for a dining experience but it was so dark that we had quite a bit of trouble even reading our menus, the kids too, it was just too dark. Also, as I mentioned we really like the food but find it expensive. I don't think the Keg has differentiated itself enough by the food or experience to charge the premium it does over a Jack Astors or Boston Pizza. Several people that I work with have had the same comment on price.

The Keg always tends to be loud. The steak is always good. Two of the steaks were quite small. My wife's ribs were good but not great. I feel the Keg is somewhat over-priced.
