Our dining experience is always great at this restaurant. Having Tiffany as our server made it even better. She’s smart, energetic and very pleasant. She is not obsequious with her friendly demeanor. It’s natural. She’s great. She was eager to offer substitutions for alternate sides etc. One of our favorite restaurants. We recommend it to many.

Over the years, our family has been dinning at The Key for special occasions. As the kid are all grown and moved on, my wife and I still go there for that special meal. The Key is our favorite "go to" place for fine dinning. We have always receive great food and good service.

They are known for their Prime Rib, but I will swear by their filet mignon with the blue cheese crust. Simply to die for.

We have always loved The Keg and it’s been our go to for years for date night or special occasions but last night was terrible. The restaurant itself was very hot and uncomfortable until 1/2 way through our meal when the air finally kicked on. Service was still great and my husbands food was good. Mine on the other hand was awful- grey colored meat that was undercooked. I only had a few bites and ate my side instead (love their cauliflower mash). I hate writing this review, but we’ll go elsewhere for our next special occasion.

I am a Canadian turned American and decided to head to the Keg and I have to say the plating wasn't as pristine. The iceberg salad wasn't as crisp, and the steak platings were messy. Additionally, the AC wasn't working well according to staff and we had to leave in a hurry. I do have to say though, the service was great.

Everything was wonderful but to be honest the AC was either broken or not really working because we were all completely sweating sitting there. Which made the dining experience not very pleasant as we couldn’t wait to just finish our food just to get out. We asked the server what was going on and she said that particular area doesn’t really get a good AC. If that’s the case they should avoid sitting people there because it was honestly so miserable that the intent for our dinner there was to celebrate and we just couldn’t wait to leave because it was so hot. Everything else was wonderful but sweating while just sitting there because of the lack of AC was just miserable. It was right next to the fireplace in which the fireplace wasn’t even on but the server says that particular area doesn’t get good airflow.

This is the place to celebrate a special occasion, but it is also a great place to have a really good dinner. I celebrated my birthday with my family and all five of us just love this place. Everything we ordered was really delicious and the atmosphere is so calming and pretty from the moment you walk into this restaurant. I just cannot wait to go back.

The filet mignon is exceptional, I love the lobster tails, the twice-baked potatoes
are so delicious and I just love the mushrooms. Actually, everything in the place tastes so great - salads, just-baked bread, and the fabulous free dessert for my birthday.

But the very best thing is the great service we received. Our server was probably the best in the business. She was just unbelievably wonderful.
THANKS TO THE KEG for everything. Great dinner - great time.

We were celebrating the one year anniversary of our first date which was at the same restaurant. We shared it with the waiter and nothing ever came of it. No complimentary glass of wine or dessert. Nothing

Food was fine but temperature was hot and stuffy in the restaurant. Really needed the air turned down cooler

Wish The Keg had valued our special evening more than they did

I ordered the blackened chicken with shrimp and scallops. Chicken was over cooked. Very dry and not much flavor. Sauce was barely warm. Garlic mashed potatoes were not hot but tasted ok, very thick imo. Grilled veggies were very blah. My family ordered top sirloin, burgers and teriyaki sirloin. Everyone reported that their meals were just ok. Service and ambience were great.

This was basically my first trip in to celebrate my son's birthday. Service was fabulous, food was amazing. The section we were seated in was a little warm (I am the person who is always chilled and doesn't like the AC blowing on me), but even I was warm. Other than that, it was a great experience and I will return.

More like a fast food type steakhouse vibe with average food quality. My wife wanted the shellfish trio that was on the menu only to be told after the waiter checked that they had discontinued it the day before. I had the prime rib and it was ok. My son had the New York strip loin which was correctly cooked to medium well. Drinks were good, average selection of whiskey. Appetizers were probably the best part of the meal. I had the baked Brie, excellent. And my wife and don shared the calamari. Overall a fairly average, slightly over priced meal. I would eat there again but other repeat places would come first.

Date night with my husband, everything was good, really the only call outs would be how amazingly loud it was, the music was crazy and didn’t fit the vibe (or what I thought was the vibe) of the restaurant at all. We were seated on the opposite side of the building of the bar but all we could hear was the bar music and was not the atmosphere we want or look for in a date night (for reference we are both 29, so we aren’t exactly crotchety old people) and if we had wanted to go to a bar we would have. For the price you pay for food (the two of us our bill was $150) I feel like that should be considered a nice place and the staff and atmosphere does nothing to reflect that at all.

The second thing was our server was trying to rush us out of there and it was strange.. four times I told her “we aren’t in a hurry” “we aren’t in a rush” just to no avail. Super sad because the food is amazing and both our steaks were cooked to perfection and it’s literally the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had, but we will simply have to look elsewhere for a date night spot because the restaurant part of the keg has lost itself to the bar section and just isn’t worth the money for the experience

I had a reservation for three booked on open table 2 weeks prior to the actual occasion. When we arrived I let the hostess know of my reservation a few minutes later she tried to sit us in the bar. I advised I had made a reservation two weeks ago and I am not sitting in the bar. We were sat in a conference room in the corner. My husband and I ordered the fillet and his surely did not look like a fillet it was very tough. We go to the keg multiple times per year and very rarely have a poor experience. I was very disappointed in this visit. The one positive thing was our server did a fine job for things that were out of his control I will not blame him.
