After a few hectics months my wife and I finally were able to have a date night and this place was incredible. Not only was the food, service, and atmosphere outstanding but they also placed roses on our table for our date!! Talk about thoughtful! Definitely one of our favs now and will be visiting often.

We’ve been to the Keg numerous times and I have to admit this is the first time our service was not very good. Our waiter was not very attentive to our needs (he seemed to always be “ghosting “ us and our food took a bit longer then other customers who sat down after us and we were given no explanation. And the noise level was through the roof that we couldn’t hear each other talk. But once we received our food it was very good.

It’s a bit loud cause it’s always packed. Unless you make a reservation, be prepared to wait a long time. The bone in ribeye is awesome but the New York strip is out of this world delicious. A bit pricey but it’s quality. Older crowd.

My wife ordered the salmon and it was very fishy tasting. We told the waitress and she offered her either the tuna or the halibut. My wife decided on the halibut. She said she would get the order right in and it would only take a few minutes. The manager came over and apologized and said that the halibut would be out shortly. I finish my prime rib, which was OK, but the crust was very salty, and by that time (15 mins) they finally brought out my wife's halibut which was OK. Unfortunately instead of charging us for the salmon because of the inconvenience, they charged us for the full price of the halibut. Will not go back there again. Food is overpriced, it is very loud in there (and I am hard of hearing), and you cannot carry on a conversation without yelling at each other.

The Keg was fabulous! The food and service was outstanding. I alerted the Keg that we were celebrating 3 March birthdays and they made it so special. They had handmade birthday cards waiting on the table for each one. Then, the dessert was free to each birthday person, with extra spoons to share!! Our server Charlie, was exceptional. We had a party of 9, and he remembered everything! He was prompt on refills and very friendly. It was a very memorable night! We will be back!

Our friends arrived for vacation a few days ahead of us in Phoenix and went to The Keg. They enjoyed it so much, they suggested we go with them for dinner. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and it was the perfect choice for the occasion. We arrived at the tale-end of Happy Hour and enjoyed a J Lohr wine in the bar before we were seated. While in the bar, a group sitting nearby asked if we were there for dinner and offered us a coupon from the Waste Management golf event that was buy one entree and get the second free - bonus! The food and service were great. I had the New York strip steak while my husband got a half-slab of ribs. Our friends ordered the prime rib (with killer horseradish) and the halibut special. The birthday dessert was a decadent German chocolate cake a la mode. We were in Phoenix to go to a couple of the Cleveland Indians' spring training games (on my husband's bucket list). Had fun the whole trip and The Keg was one of the highlights.

Dined here in December, January, February and March, In December the food was great service was horrible. In January the service was good but the steaks were burned on the outside and tasted like they used dirty oil. Very hit or miss.

I have been to this restaurant before. It was an awesome experience. This time around, not at all. The difference was the food...it was definitely not the high standard of food I had in the past. It was a steak I could have had anywhere...

Great food and beverages along with attentive and engaging staff...young, vibrant and smart! Both the restaurant and bar are loud so if you have older guests and/or someone with difficulty hearing, call in advance to request a quiet corner table ...Booth #45 is ideal for parties of 4.

Daniella, our server, was EXCELLENT!!!
And, as always, The Keg was a very good value for price paid.
However, one suggestion, do something to decrease the noise. One loud table can impact 1/2 the restaurant.

Filet we ordered was done medium well instead of medium rare. Prime rib we ordered was an end piece, very dry and not a lot of flavor. Service was good, but food was a little disappointing this time.
