Asked for medium rare got a practically raw steak it would be hard to even pass it off as rare. Same issue for other individuals at my table. Servers did not know which tables were which was brought food twice to our table that was not ours. Did not ask if it was a special occasion and we server seems stretched over to many tables or she was inexperienced.

We went for our three year anniversary and had never been to The Keg before. Food was excellent, service was outstanding (Tara at the Upper James location!) and best of all it was fast. Never had to wait between our bread, salad, appetizer and meal. They spoiled us with Billy Miner pie to celebrate and we felt truly taken care of. Ambience was beautiful, only complaint was that it was a bit noisy with children however it was Family Day - can’t fault the restaurant at all for that! Otherwise, perfect meal and we were both very impressed with the value.

I have been to the Keg many times and have always had good service. Our service was just mediocre. Our salad arrived before the drinks. My steak was over cooked, they quickly prepared another one but was told my meal would be complimentary and desserts on the house. They did give us a discount on my meal (but was not free) and free dessert. Overall our experience was mediocre.

It was pretty good, but the chicken roast i got was super dry and the skin was really hard. The server amanda was amazing, super kind and sweet. Always checked in on us never allowed our drinks to go empty. Overall, it was good.

First visit to this location since the renovation. We went as a Valentines dinner but not on Valentines Day. We made reservations and when we got there were seated straight away. If you go I HIGHLY recommend making reservations. I must say we loved the way it looked. Modern, open concept and it's wonderful that the washrooms are now on the main floor. Our waitress (Cassandra I believe) was absolutely amazing, very attentive and absolutely sweet. The escargot was delicious, the cesar salad didn't disappoint, hubbys steak and lobster was amazing. The caramel cheesecake is delicious if you haven't tried it you should. One negative though as other people have commented on is the parking. With 2 establishments sharing a parking lot trying to find parking some nights is horrible. We will be back again.

The portions were small for the price. Also we were there for a 4pm reservation and arrived about 10mins early.. I was surprised that the doors in the foyer were not open so that people could at least get out of the cold. Also the wine selection for white wasn't great only one pinot grigio.

The recently renovated Upper James location exceeded our expectations. Really beautiful decor and yummy food of course, but what stood out was the wonderful staff. Thanks so much for a very enjoyable Valentine’s Day dinner. Our waitress Amanda was very sweet, and Manager Jason went above and beyond, offering to comp us for apps and ended up comping our our dessert too, just because we had to wait a few minutes for our reserved booth to be ready. We were so impressed with their willingness to make our night special. They also brought our kids a really nice complimentary snack plate as well while we waited for our meals. All of our food was served delicious and hot. Thank you for a really nice evening!!

Had a lovely evening at the Keg Upper James on Valentine’s Day. Our server was wonderful (unsure of her name, but she was a very tall blonde woman...we sat quite close to the entranceway..5:00pm). We really enjoyed the complimentary dessert for the special occasion. Our second time since the Reno opening date and we loved it once again. The Reno is beautiful. Can’t wait to go back! Thanks Keg UJ!

I went to enjoy Valentines day at what i use to think was a nice elegant resturant. Since this resturant was re built we were excited to see what it looked like. When we arrived and were seated we were immediatly disapointed. We were squeezed in. The layout and overall feeling was as if it was a buffet. Fit as many people as possible in.
We wont be coming back.

Was great food and service. So loud we had to yell to hear one another. Thats enough to keep us away but we would still recommend the food to friends. We booked our wedding reception here but will be cancelling. Its too loud for us and the 30 person "room" is an open area next to the bar so it will be distracting to our guests.

WE enjoyed the new Keg. Service was very good , food excellent but we only had salmon and chicken, no drinks except pop and no salad or appetizer. The bill was $87 , sorry we won't be going back , too expensive. I can get the same meals with salad and appetizers at Turtle Jacks . Thank you
