We went for our Anniversary, included that in the reservation, but that wasn’t recognized at any point. I wasn’t looking for free food, but why have space available on the reservation if you won’t acknowledge what’s being added. Confused why reservations were being accepted on open table, but when we arrived we’re told the restaurant was running behind. Ended up eating at the bar. Not the experience we were looking for, but the bartenders were as attentive as they could be on a busy Saturday night.

Excellent food, excellent service, a little on the high side for pricing, BUT the wait for seating was
terrible. We had a confirmed reservation and had to wait 35-40 minutes before being seated. Plus we heard similar and worse complaints by 2-3 couples near us also waiting 45-60 minutes for their seating.
Something needs to be done about this because The Keg is such an excellent restaurant otherwise, Milford

Always reliable spot for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. The steaks are as good as more expensive steak chains. The happy hour prices are great and happy hour lasts till 7:00, which is a nice compliment to the full price menu. Service is always great.

This location was mediocre (Desert Ridge). Was very noisy and sat under bright light! It was so loud the waiter couldnt hear my order. My lobster tails had no seasoning and a bit under cooked. I went to celebrate my bday. The Tempe location takes the cake! They had a bday card signed by employees wishing me a great bday. The lighting was romantic and inviting. Was quiet and my date could hear me talk. And the food was perfection at Tempe location!

We always love the Keg. This time we decided to try something new and each ordered the daily special, on-the -bone Kansas steak. Mine was medium and I loved it. My husband’s ware rare and he didn’t so it’s hard to give a conclusive opinion this time. We’ll still be going back. I can’t resist their Bloody Caesar’s!

Just a wonderful establishment! First Keg we've visited in the U.S. and they did not disappoint. Steak was very well seasoned and cooked while our server made the experience stressless. Wife and I were on a date and when we arrived to the table there was a rose sitting there for her! Later, the table captain stopped by with two glasses of champagne, unsolicited! Without question one of our favorite places to enjoy good food and make memories.

We love visiting The Keg. We typically make a reservation for a table, but most of the time will stay sitting at the bar and eating there. We love the cauliflower appetizer and homemade complimentary chips they serve. Service is always great sitting at the bar. My daughter's favorite is the rib steak. It is huge and full of flavor. My husband loves the baseball sirloin. I like to mix it up and try and select something different each time we come. This time I had the small plate flat iron steak with vegetables, and it was amazing.

Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner Was Awful!!!!
All Dark Meat, Just a smidgen of White (Brest) Meat!!!
Stuffing not too bad, But the Cranberry Sauce was a disaster!!!
All runny, little tiny stems!!! You need to spit them out!!!!
The only thing that was good was the desert!!!
Cheesecake with Pumpkin Drizzle!!!
I guess many people did not know about the $25.00 Coupon for your next meal, But our Server Mandy never asked if we would like one!!!
Upon leaving I mentioned this to the Manager which he apologized and promptly gave us one!!!
Any other time The Keg is a good place for Steaks but don’t waste your money on Thanksgiving Ever!!!

My mom and I went there for the first time for Thanksgiving. They allowed us to modify the menu which we greatly appreciated. The food was absolutely phenomenal, you could tell they use all very high quality ingredients. We will be going back soon. The cheesecake was the best I have ever had in my life. We substituted cherries for the pumpkin drizzle and they were obviously homemade and excellent. I couldn’t have had a better experience or better food.

The food was mediocre and presentation was fair. My steak was a slightly overdone and the shrimp looked and tasted as if it was a pre-prepped dish sitting for some time on a steam table.
Service was good but the place was a bit noisy and hard to hear the the waitress when she spoke. She could have projected a bit more to be better understood in such an open and noisy setting.
I would give the place another shot on the off chance the kitchen had a bad night but otherwise not my first choice for a steakhouse. Consistent service/quality is a must for repeat visits. I would rather spend more money and know that my food and service were on point each time I visited, than spend less and be questionable on service and quality.
Step your game up and maintain quality to match the ambiance of the venue. The place looks great!
