Service was not as good as it could have been. A friend of mine ordered the Kansas City and it was not cooked how he asked. Otherwise the food was good and the environment was perfect.

It’s hard to find a nicer restaurant that welcomes young kids, this place is great for families. They didn’t make us feel bad for dining out with our young children like some other establishments do. Jay was a phenomenal server, one of the best servers we have ever had!

The service was friendly and prompt. We had to wait about 15 min past our reservation time to be seated but they passed around complimentary champagne to waiting comensales. The food was delicious. The prices were reasonable. Would definitely go back!

My peppercorn steak was sooooo good! The bacon and scallop appy was scrumptious! The Billy Miner pie always yummy! Top it off with a good bottle of burrowing owl wine!
Can’t get much better!

My wife, brother-in-law, his girlfriend, and I decided to have our last meal of 2019 at The Keg on Dunsmuir. They made us wait about 10 minutes even though we had reservations. However, they offered complimentary finger food and champagne so the we did not mind the wait at all. The decor and ambience of The Keg is as usual and up to par with their other locations. When we ordered drinks they were brought out promptly and our waitress was amazing. The only complaint I would have is my brother-in-laws girlfriend ordered her steak medium rare and they brought here a medium cooked steak. However, the waitress was amazing and not only did she apologize but she also spoke with her manager on our behalf and the manager also apologized and paid for the steak. Overall, a great experience. I would rate my experience a solid 9/10; I just wish they had done their due diligence and made sure the steak was cooked to order as The Keg is one of the premier steakhouses.

Had a reservation but was asked to wait an additional 10 minutes for a table while watching others that walked in after us, be seated immediately. Then, a bottle of wine was opened for patrons waiting for a table, it was offered to several other people, but not us. The steak I ordered was poorly cooked, not once, but twice. We were comped the meal, which was considerate, but it didn't compensate for the mediocre service upon arrival.

It was both NYE and our first dinner out with our baby. We were nervous, but the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and ensure we had an enjoyable meal. Will definitely be back. A special thank you to Jay for taking such good care of our baby girl!

The manager named Spencer was very nice! As was our bartender Demarcus I believe? The food was tasty and hot. Our appy was initially cold when it first came out but our bartender sent it back straight away and we got it heated up. I was a little underwhelmed that my side of veggies was just some string beans and a slice of pepper but the mashed potato and steak we had were excellent!

We are frequent customers of Keg’s restaurants in Lower Mainland, Whistler etc. At every visit we found absolutely nothing to comply about until this Christmas dinner. Our table for dinner at 8:15 pm was booked on line. The day before we received SMS to confirm we are still coming for dinner. After that we received phone call to let us know restaurant is open till 10pm only.
My spouse ordered ½ ribs and I as always Filet Minion medium well and double baked potato. We were waiting for long time but considering special evening we didn’t comply.
When my dinner (filet minion) was served I was in shock! Very, very small burned peace of meat with fries. I called waitress back and complained. I must add she was pretty shocked too and took the plate immediately back. Then my wife started with her ribs and it was cold! So we decided to return this as well. After that we canceled our order and left the restaurant.

*I loved the food, loved our server (from Northern England, what a sweet guy)! I was accompanied by an 89 year old friend who is legally blind and hard of hearing and our server leaned down to explain the order - so nice to see that kind of patience from a young man ! The girls at the front desk were sweet to us as well. The noise was a bit much but to be expected on Christmas Eve...maybe the ambience was geared more to the young, but we enjoyed the experience very much !

It was a bustling evening for the restaurant so despite the business in the restaurant, everyone was professional and the food was amazing. The one downside of the visit was probably the drinks from the bar - with the holiday season around, the newer hires for the bar kept getting the drinks done wrong.. but it’s not the end of the world.

Haven’t been to the Keg in years because the food went downhill. Nothing changed, Fish & chips was cold, fish over cooked, and the batter was so. tough that you couldn’t bite through it. Waited 1/2 hr. for our our pot of tea, and had to ask the manager. The pot of tea was served to our table luke warm! Yuk!!

Our waitress messed up our drink order, the halibut was overcooked, the 7oz bacon wrapped filet was very tough, the noise level was over the top due to a large unruly party that the manager didn't correct, and when the large party left the restaurant music was so loud we couldn't have a conversation across the table. In fact, the waitress had to come around the table to each of us so that we could hear the nightly specials.

We got our appies and salad before our cocktail. Then they brought our main bourse 5 minutes later and the waitress made us clear our own plates. Then we waited 10 minutes for our wine to have with our main while it got cold, the whole meal was over in 30 minutes and it was supposed to be romantic.

On a recent trip to Vancouver, we were looking for a good place to eat. We were having problems finding an open reservation and decided on the Keg. Our experience with the Keg in our area created an expectation of an average steak house. We were pleasantly surprised with the excellence of this restaurant. Food, service and ambiance were great.

To be honest, this location is my go to when my friends and I are craving for steak, but we felt disappointed with the service last Saturday. The server messed up with our order by missing the shrimp and scallop that goes together with my friend’s order, but didn’t apologize. Instead, she just smiled and stared at my friend in a mocking way. Then when we Asked for the bill, she had to return thrice until we received the right bill. I understand it was a busy dinner time for everyone, but I wish we received an apology for the server’s smug smile when the order was messed up
