Food was great, no complaints. I just found it very loud, and with having a reservation, had to wait for a seat. And then was seated almost in an aisle way. Was not the Keg experience I remembered.

Our 7:15 reservation was honoured almost immediately. I was disappointed that by the time we ordered, about 20 minutes later, I was informed that my choice of roast beef was a 'no go', because it was already sold out. My next choice of a sirloin steak, while more expensive, was perfectly grilled. Our friends had the calamari appetizer and thought it was excellent. Service was excellent, although our server had considerable difficulty uncorking our wine. It was eventually accomplished by a supervisor. All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening shared with good friends.

Josh was an excellent server: attentive, and with a fun sense of humour. The food was fast, hot and cooked to perfection. We even ordered dessert, which we rarely do, and it was the perfect ending to our meal. It was a completely enjoyable evening. Highly recommend the Waterdown Keg.

Food was excellent. Seating could be upgraded so that if you're in a half booth (one seat in a booth, the other in a chair), you're not in the middle of a walk way for service staff.

We go to this Keg with our two daughters and my mom at least twice a month. We usually seat at the bar area for a quick dinner but suggest making a reservation for large groups and special occasions. The kids love the kids menu and it is reasonably priced. Best steak and French onion soup.

We have eaten at this Keg location many times previous. I had the lobster tail & baked potatoe. Which was good. My husband had the prime rib dinner that he found was salty & not enjoyable. He felt that the piece of beef was not carved off a roast but was cooked by itself & thus was dry. We will have to consider if we will eat here again. As I have stated we have always had a good meal at this location, however this visit did not meet expectations for monies spent.

Overall we loved the evening, we had a few minor things that weren't to our satisfaction that I would like to mention, I ordered the prime rib at the recomenddation of our waiter for tenderness, however when it arrived it was extremely fatty....when asked how the meal was I expressed my displeasure in the steaks fattiness and he did offer to make me different steak but I didin't want to wait for another meal while my wife ate it was our 29th wedding anniversary so I delcined and took half the steak home for anyone who wanted it. Also the table beside us received bread right after they got their drinks, we never did get the bread for our table. Our waiter asked us if we wanted bread but never did bring it for us. Other than those two items the dinner atmosphere was really nice and I will return I just won't order the prime rib ever again.

I always go to the Keg. We love going. But, we don't like being seated near the kitchen. When I asked not to be seated there, they placed us somewhere equally as bad--near the station where the servers toll up the bills and hang out to chat. My husband and I were very uncomfortable sitting right next to the servers' little hang out spot, while hearing them chat and watching them stand around looking bored... a bit disappointing really. I know your servers are only human and need to take a break every now and then, but they shouldn't be hanging around their till station to gossip if there is a dinner table right across from them with customers seated trying to enjoy a somewhat private dinner. Can't they go 'round the back or to the kitchens to do that?

We’ve been to the Keg many times, second time to this location, and we are never disappointed. This occasion was slightly different. My steak was over cooked and the Caesar salad had almost no dressing. We were celebrating our anniversary and I didn’t say anything so I really can’t complain because I didn’t give them an opportunity to remedy the situation. That being said, I’ve never had an issue before so this was an unusual experience.

The appetizers were hot, but served at different times so difficult to share. Some meals were not hot. My husband's steak had grissol in the middle of it. There was too much dressing on my mom's Cesar salad so the lettuce was wilted. It took too long between the appetizers and the meals to arrive...about 30 minutes.

Requested a booth, but didn’t really get one - usually always great - my husbands French onion soup too much bread not very much onion in it - his favourite too so disappointing and his peppercorn steak was very fatty - service wasn’t the best and it usually is. So overall disappointing and the Keg is our favourite restaurant that might have to change though -

Our reservation requests were honoured perfectly.
Wait staff was most friendly and genuine - very nice.
Catherine our server was friendly, happy and strived to please.
Another server Kyle would stop by and make sure we weren't lacking anything.
Restaurant was busy but service was not affected - was very good.

It was our wedding anniversary, on a Monday. First they had no booths. This was because they had a major problem with water dripping from the ceiling onto many tables and therefore had to close off many. Second they had run out of live lobster because of being busy the day before. Then right when we expect our prime rib dinner to be arriving, the kitchen manager comes to tell us they had run out of prime rib. A few negatives add up to some disappointment. They did replace our steak choice with one they thought was better, but we would have rathered the prime rib! Our waiter was great which was helpful.
We left with a bit of a sour taste.

Great place to go for a 'Special Occasion'. Restaurant is nice, servers are friendly, sociable, work together as a great Team. Very impressed that the Servers 'time' the courses of the meal. I will always go back to The Keg in Waterdown... they are not all the same. We have been to many and Waterdown is our favorite.
