We went to The Keg for restaurant week. I understand that restaurant week does result in some extra business in the restaurant, but the purpose of it should be to develop a return customer. Unfortunately, I'm not confident we will return. The main course did take quite a bit of time. We were in the restaurant for nearly 3 hours in total. My fiance's filet was also severely overcooked. He stated afterwards that is was the worst steak he's ever had; very tough and dry. Not exactly what you want from a high end steakhouse.

Been going to The Keg for over 20 years. Been to various ones in Toronto and Texas and the quality of food and service were always great. My visit to the one in Phoenix however was disappointing. I ordered my steak rare and it came out just raw all over. A staff member dropped off my plate and walked off without waiting for me to cut into my steak and deem it acceptable. Almost all notable steakhouses will stand there and have you cut into your steak first before leaving. We waited 15 mins for our server to come but ended up having to ask for the manager. We saw our waitress a total of 4 times throughout our 2hr dinner. Perhaps they were understaffed or they were just busy but this restaurant just didn’t perform the service or quality other “The Keg” restaurants normally provide.

The Keg is always a great and delicious experience! From the hostesses to the servers to the manager, their employees always make you feel special. The food is delicious whether you are enjoying the happy hour menu at the bar or a steak dinner. Thanks for making so many celebration dinners even more memorable!

If you want value for the meal that is about $$ in pricing, this is it. The food is great, the service is excellent and they also have a great happy hour in the bar. The Keg is my go to steakhouse place!

After receiving several recommendations to eat here, I was disappointed with the quality of the food. I ordered the steak and lobster and felt the top sirloin steak and lobster tails fell short of expectations. The steak was over cooked and the lobster tails seemed flat and underwhelming. For the price point, I was expecting higher quality food. The service was attentive, the ambiance seems dated and old.

I have been to the Keg before but this time it really didn’t live up to my expectations. I had family in from Virginia and thought the keg would be the perfect place to take them. Unfortunately, the food was terrible! 3 of us ordered the Oscar Sirloin. Something we have ordered many times before. We were all so disappointed with the sirloin Oscar. The steak was tough and the shrimp was tasteless and not cooked right. And the sauce was tasteless as well! Highly disappointed with the keg. Thought spending $200 for dinner would get us a delicious dinner, we were very wrong

We get to The Keg several times a year, either for dinner or Happy Hour. This time, our group of 5 got together to celebrate a 50th birthday. We planned an early dinner on Labor Day, and ended up spending almost 3 hours at the restaurant. The food was very good as always. There are choices and options for everyone - steaks, seafood, chicken, ribs, not to mention a selection of appetizers and sides that can more than make a meal. The service was perfect. Our server was prompt with our requests, but we never felt rushed or that we weren't welcome to linger over drinks and appetizers... and dinner... and dessert! It was a perfect surprise dinner for the guest of honor!

This was my second visit to the KEG steakhouse. The food was not as good as I remembered the first time. My steak was fatty and a little undercooked this time. Hoping it’s just a fluke. Good service made up for it. Will give this place another shot.

Our food was great and so was the service! The music was a bit too loud and the beat was annoying. We were there on a Friday evening maybe the reason for the louder music. I never noticed the music as loud during the week. We'll be back but probably not at a prime time/day.

We were sat in a nice booth. We were greeted by our waiter and brought drinks. Then after a party of 6-8 business men and one women were sat across from us at a table oir waiter forgot that we existed. We never saw our waiter again and others brought our food and others brought our drinks. Our food though it was good was barley warm and nowhere near even hot. Then the noise level of the business men was way too loud and rude.
