Just wonderful! Waitresses, hostess and manager were all just pleasant to be around. Made us feel like Kings which is always appreciated. Deserves to be up there in the best spots to dine in the valley. Will definitely go again!

Restaurant was very crowded. Sat us on time for reservation but then service was extremely slow from getting drinks to salad and finally entrees which were lukewarm. Staff offered to replace but by this time, we had been there long enough. Restaurant did compensate us for issues but it was unfortunate that it happened.

seated in a small room with 2 large parties...we were seated under an air conditioning duct requested
move to different table better but because of the large parties to noisy to even have a conversation unless you know where you will be seated I would not recommend this restaurant..

This is my favorite restaurant for high end beef and seafood. Always spot on. My guest and I really enjoyed the night out. I would love to see one in Prescott area but probably not enough population to support it.

I realize we were there on a busy night, Valentines Day, but the service seemed hectic. We didn’t want any bread on the table, but it was brought anyway. I had the crab cakes which were very good, with a side a garlic mashed potatoes. The potatoes were not brought out with the meal. By the time we flagged the waitress down, I was nearly done with my entree. When she finally did bring the potatoes, my entree was finished. The waitress chuckled and said the potatoes would just have to be my little dessert! Thanks!

We both had the filet and lobster special. My husband's filet had a bit too much gristle. The lobster tails were the smallest I have ever seen.

We have enjoyed The Keg Steakhouse for many years. They provide excellent service and very good food, especially their steaks. We have gone here for special occasions several times throughout the years.

It was a perfect place for a special dinner. We had to wait 15 min over our reservation, so they took care of an appetizer for us which was such a nice thing to do! This was our first time there, definitely coming back!

One of our go to spots for a nice treat. First time I wouldn’t give the service a shout out. Our waitress was about three table visits short of what I would have considered adequate. Cocktails and food were outstanding. We had the bacon wrapped fillet (add Bleu Cheese topping), and the prime rib, that horseradish they serve it with is called Atomic for a reason! WOW! That’ll clear your pipes! It’s so good. Shout out to the supporting cast that helped with the service, they were all superb.

We had an early Valentine's day dinner as we had a gift card for the Keg and valentines day was booked so decided to go a few days before to beat the rush. Little did we know the restaurant was packed the same night we went to dinner. We did have a wait even though we had a reservation at 6 booked so that was kind of annoying but it wasn't too long of a wait. We were seated at a booth which we requested. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. We didn't wait too long between meals as we had starter's before so that helped. We were both stuffed from the food so we didn't try any of the desserts. Had a great time.

Another great dinner and date at the Keg. The food is great and the service is top notch!

The ambience of the restaurant is really nice. The booths are private and the noise level is low. No problem conversing with my date across the table.

My date and I were originally shown to a table that was in a crowded area. The hostess Mason was very accommodating and found us a great booth instead. We were checked on frequently my our server and the manager. Our steaks were amazing. Wonderful meal!

We dined at The Keg-DR with two other couples last Saturday night. The restaurant was packed, however, we were seated within 3 - 4 minutes of our reservation time. Our server was super friendly and efficient. All steaks or prime rib ordered were cooked to perfection and The Keg team gladly split salads for a couple of us. We had a small hiccup when one of our party ordered a nightly special of a small fillet & shrimp+scallops.
They forgot to put the seafood on the plate. However, when we notified our server, she quickly went to the kitchen and brought the seafood out separately. Then a kitchen manager came out to apologize and arranged for a couple of free desserts for the table on the house, without asking. They were on top of things!! Note - the fillet was wonderful, the seafood topping was tiny and bland.
We will definitely look forward to our next visit to The Keg-DR, nice place for a special dinner!

My wife and I have been to this place twice so far and it's been excellent both times. The service is amazing - our waitress, who was the same both times (I wish I remembered her name), was very friendly and checked on us repeatedly. I do remember from our first visit that she was also very knowledgeable on the menu when we asked several questions about the food. This time, the manager even came over to make sure everything was ok with our meal. And, since it was our anniversary, the restaurant comped us a glass of champagne each, and also wrote us a card that was signed by the staff.

The food is what you'd expect from a steakhouse - all the basic cuts of steak and appropriate sides, plus prime rib and several options for non-meat eaters. Everything we've ordered has been cooked and seasoned just right. On this visit, my prime rib was tender enough to cut with a fork.

A highlight is actually the bread! They cook it fresh and it comes hot out of the oven, crispy on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. It takes an extra couple of minutes for that reason, but it's worth it.

This location can get super-crowded, so either make a reservation early or go at an off time. Its decor is typical high end steakhouse so it does have a lot of sound absorbing materials, so it's not too loud even when the restaurant's full. There are also a lot of booths, which makes it feel private even when very crowded.

Lastly, our bill has actually been less than I expected both times. Granted, it's not a cheap place, but it feels even more expensive than it is.

Everyone had a good meal. I was a bit disappointed with the steak frites. Not a good cut of steak and the shoestring fries did not work very well. But still a good value.

Medium rare New York steak was totally charred on the bottom. Result was medium on the top half and very well done on the bottom half. Never had this problem before at this Keg location and the manager graciously removed the steak from the tab and comped a dessert. Hate to give one star but have to recognize the error.
