The fact that they now take reservations gets away from having to show up and wait in a crammed waiting area. It's basically a great place to eat.

We were celebrating a special moment. From the friendly greeting to meeting our great waiter, Mike, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The Manager came out and that was a nice touch and then we were treated to a dessert in honour of our celebration.

The food was great and it was truly a treat to eat there.

We don’t go out often but we will return to The Keg Waterloo the next time we do.

Overall we enjoyed our dinner. Our steaks were cooked perfectly - even my rare one and the Keg favourites dishes were well proportioned and reasonably priced.

Excellent service and a great meal for my wife’s birthday, the occasion was acknowledged with an unexpected complimentary dessert which we had no room for but ate anyways! Highly recommend for birthdays and date nights.

A favourite place with reliable service and consistently good food. The prime rib is their signature beef and it's the thing I always order - medium-rare, of course. And the best horseradish - famously hot-hot-hot. I always upside to a 14oz cut so that I have lots to take home for left-overs. A good atmosphere with lots of booths so your seating always feels private.
To top it off, it was my wife's birthday and we got delivered a nice big slice of Billy Miner pie complete with a candle (and, thankfully, no group of servers gathering around the table to reluctantly sing a happy birthday ditty).

A wonderful evening with friends celebrating two birthdays! Everything was lovely, we all felt well taken care of and appreciated as customers. The birthday desserts were enjoyed by both celebrants and their spouses. Thanks for these delicious, shareable treats. Looking forward to our next visit.

Everything was fine except for the calamari. It was very oily so we only ate 1/3 of the plate. Our entrees came out so fast that we just ditched the calamari all together. Server asked how our food was and since we were onto our entrees, we didn’t bother to complain. The restaurant was very busy as well. We wouldn’t order or recommend the calamari again.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and the staff (especially our waitress) was very attentive and went out of their way to wish us well and make our experience special.

The foot was fantastic and the service was exceptional. I really can't say enough about how great our experience was.

We have been to many Keg restaurants all over, and this experience surpassed the quality we have come to expect. If I could rate it higher I would!

I wish I could remember the server's name, but she was absolutely lovely - the right mix of attentive but not intrusive.

Fantastic service. Great food. My wife’s prime rib came out over done, the manager had a new perfect one ready for us in less than a minute. Mistakes happen, but the service to make it right shows they care. My steak was pure perfection, as was all our other food. Can’t wait to go back. Thanks for the anniversary dessert!

The food and service was excellent. Unfortunately the restaurant is very loud and has no ambiance. There are no partitions to help divide the restaurant and lower the noise level. Although the service is excellent everything happens so fast. We were in, ordered and ate and had our bill in an hour. Certainly not relaxing!

We frequent the Keg often. It is our "go to" place when we want a good steak in particular. This visit was not as good as most. It may have been due to it being New Years day although it did not seem excessively busy as we were there early. The appetizers came quickly but the meal came very late and seemed to have been sitting. My fiancé's steak was overcooked and my shrimp were cold. We did not complain since we were hungry and did not want to wait for another plate to be prepared. We were celebrating our engagement and the start to what seems will be an incredible year. They were kind enough to bring us a slice of Billy Miner Pie but took it to go.

Everything was great at The Keg, Waterloo - good food, good service; however, the noise level is a problem here. Recently, my husband and I ate at The Keg on Wellington Road in London ON. This restaurant has been done up in a manner to vastly reduce the noise level. I recommend that the Waterloo site emulate the London efforts to keep noise down.

We had a fine evening at the Keg in Waterloo, celebrating our 50th Anniversary. Our server was very attentive, in spite of having a large group beside us to serve as well. Everything we ordered was delicious and devoured, including the surprise Anniversary dessert! We will be back!

our server is a friendly, cheerful, respectful, and knowledgeable professional who knows how to please and attend to customers, and to recommend various wines and beers. The food at The Keg is always prepared to the customer's stated preference, and there is always a new tempting addition to the menu. Because of the quality, we visit The keg to celebrate special family occasions, and to bring international friends

The night was wonderful. Would recommend an early booking. 4:30-5. Served fresh warm bread with butter, ordered the garlic cheese toast which was piping hot and delicious. I ordered the red sangria to drink and the masala chicken. Everything was hot, fresh and cooked perfectly. To end the night our server brought out a surprise dessert for our anniversary.

Made a last minute reservation. Lucky to get a table. We got there about 10 minutes early and they seated us right away.

Our waiter wasn’t great.

We had finished our appetizer and our menus had been closed since before we got the app - we had flag him down to ask if we could order. He didn’t bring bread but the tables around us seemed to be getting bread without issue. We finally asked for it after our app and our salads and he was unapologetic.

We both had the prime rib. My husbands ate his and he said it was good. I got less than half of the way through mine and I felt ill. Thinking it was just me, I offered it to my husband - he took one bite and said yours isn’t good. It’s tough, chewy and the taste is off.

We did have a nice evening. The atmosphere was nice, good wine, Excellent shrimp cocktail and salads. Yum!

This was a repeat visit and a Birthday celebration for my fiancee. The special that night of the steak with mushrooms was superb, done the way we both like it and so tender. The vegetables were done just right and not limp or cold and yet thoroughly cooked. The gravy was delicious and really complimented the steak. The mushrooms were delicious and very flavourful. All in all it was a great evening spent. Thank you!

Everything was fabulous. Service was exceptional. If I could change one thing the tables for two are just too small. Little more room would be much more comfortable.
