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!

It's a very nice restaurant and we were there for my husbands 60th birthday, our server was very slow throughout the whole evening and to make matters worse we were a group of 5 adults that was sat next too 2 screaming kids😡😡😡 not what you want on a Saturday night for a special occasion. And its pricy.

Prices were reasonable and the service was fine.

Best food and value in the valley! The service is impeccable. Our waiter was friendly, but didn't hover. He explained the menu and wine list very well. The quality of the steak is what you would expect from a top notch steak house, but the price won't require a bank loan.
Great food at affordable prices.
Our Desert Ridge Keg is one of our very favorite restaurants, and we have many choices here in Scottsdale and Phoenix, but always return to this one.

The food and service was great. The temperature was quite chilly and the noise level was quite significant. We had a hard time having a conversation at our booth due to the noise level of the table in our area.

Everything was great except the hostesses walking around with their I-pad looking at all the various stages of where people were at in their dinner. We must have seen the girl walk by looking at our table and others at least 10 times in the 90 minutes we were there. Other than that, everything was great

Since this is being rated by my husband and I we are not completely in agreement. Very hip restaurant and very noisy. Maye who waited on us - was wonderful. Our meals? A little disappointing - prime rib (which we were told they are noted for) and my short rib of beef ( which was new to menu) were fatty. We were told at Marriott that this was favorite of many but I don’t think we would be going back.

The only real disappointment was that all three of my kids ordered the kids sirloin and they were very sinewy and tough. They ordered them medium rare, so that wasn't the problem. We've eaten at The Keg before and they loved their steaks. Unfortunately we didn't have time to send them back as we had movie tickets.

Some people we met on vacation recommended the Keg when in the Phoenix area for price, quality, vibe, and just good food. The vibe was young and vibrant! We liked that as we are a bit older, staff was very engaging and professional. Bar staff was very busy on the night we dined and recognized we were waiting for a drink before we were seated, and exercised sound professionalism until they could get to us. Our overall conclusion was great and we thought the food, excellent! Service excellent, quality and presentation, excellent. Price, was great. Please keep it up!

Made a reservation for dinner and went to the bar to start. Had a couple of cocktails and the Fried Cauliflower, which is always good. Got seated shortly after our reservation time. The booth was a little tight for the 3 of us, but we made the best of it. Our waiter did a good job, however, I think i was served salmon instead of the Artic Char. I didn't say anything about it, but was not really happy with it. I requested some of the brussel sprouts instead of the side that came with the dish. When my plate arrived, there were literally 4 brussel sprouts on the plate. I was a little disappointed with that. The only other thing that I found odd was that when the waiter asked if we wanted to go boxes, we said yes, and he brought them to us, to pack our own food. I just thought that was a little out of character for The Keg. Not that we had a problem doing it, but the waiters have always packed the food for us. Otherwise dinner was nice.

Food was the star. Mushrooms Neptune are a delicious classic and perfect to share. The baseball steak is great for people who prefer a rare to medium rare steak. Husband had the prime rib and it was well trimmed, and perfectly cooked. Solid selection of wines by the glass.

Very noisy, our server was disinterested and there was a significant wait between courses. We dined on the late side, so maybe that was the issue. Very good value, would return, but might try the other branches in the area.

The food was great! However the service... We arrived fifteen minutes before the dining room closed, but the bar was open for another hour and fifteen minutes. We sat in the dining room. It took about ten minutes for our waiter to come, then it took about five minutes to get water. The staff seemed more interested in setting up for the next day than to take care of the few customers who were there.
