Brian is a phenomenal manager and made our evening with excellent hospitality and pristine customer service. Katie Mac is also noteworthy - she demonstrated great service and a positive, warm, welcoming attitude. Impressed.

I had read reviews saying this was the best 'Keg" in Toronto, but I don't know why. It does have a great location, the food was cooked perfectly and the service(even though our server was a bit green) was fine. We just didn't get much in the way of ambience. I think we would have preferred the Mansion. Still we had a great time.

Absolutely delicious. The Keg never disappoints. We find this location knocks it out of the park regarding food and service, even more so than the mansion.

They nailed the food. I had Caesar salad, escargot, Rib Steak med-rare with mash and peppercorn sauce. My wife had Caesar salad, sirloin med-well with mash. It was all perfect.
Service-wise, pretty good, not *amazing*. I think the server was fairly new, or was just struggling with timing. Both my wife and I have been there so no complaints.
I don’t know if we were just lucky to get the big cushy chairs or if that was because I noted that it was our anniversary when I made the reservation, but we both very much enjoyed that. We’re going to go back very soon.

We made a reso, but had to wait a bit. Lots of people had the same idea.
Service from Shanee was awesome, and the food was deelish. from apps to desserts. Loved the extra mushrooms and the steaks were perfect.
Cigarette smoke was the only down side for us that would waft in during the course of the meal from where smokers were smoking outside of the patio area. Overall-we know we’ll be back again.

The food and our server was great. Top sirloin wasn’t the best, but the appetizers and meal was still tasty overall. Did mark the reservation as a birthday, but when we ordered dessert, they didn’t add any candles or anything. Maybe I should have called ahead and specifically asked? There was a man chain smoking near our table outside on the street. Or hung much that could be done, but it still ruined our enjoyment.

The food and service was great. The only complaint I have, I was one the patio with my boyfriend and our chairs were very wide and low back support. You couldn’t lean back/sit into the chair. Made it quite uncomfortable. Most other chairs on the patio were different than the one we were in.

We arrived 5 minutes early for our reservation and we where greeted by a very nice young lady, upon being seated we immediately where asked if we wanted something to drink, our meal was fantastic and only took about 15 - 20 minutes to arrive after we ordered, steak was fantastic serve excellent would definitely recommend it. 5 stars ⭐️

We booked a reservation for 6:15pm, thinking that we would have enough time to eat before we went to the Illusionarium at 7:45pm. We were seated right at 6:15 outside. It took a while for our waitress to come and take our order for appetizer and drinks. We got the bread and drinks fairly quickly. It took a while for the appetizer. Another waiter gave us one water and said he'd be back with another one. We never received another water from him. We had to ask our waitress for water. Then we couldn't flag down our waitress until 15 minutes after we were finished the appetizer. We ordered our meal. It too like 20 minutes to get our meal. By that time we couldn't eat it before our show and had to ask them to pack it up for us to take home after the show. This was very disappointing. All I had to eat was bread and my hubby had the baked garlic shrimp before our show. Mind you, when I heated up the oven roasted chicken dinner at 10pm to eat, it was tastey.

Great service and very attentive server and manager. Needed to change table and they accommodated us instantly despite a packed house. All meals were great, prime rib especially. The Keg doesn’t miss a beat. We’ll be back.

Such a great experience celebrating my wife’s birthday with friends. Our server Jody, and management staff were all awesome.
They even treated us, my wife’s glass of rosé since she has a dairy allergy and couldn’t enjoy the Billie Miner pie.

Thank you!

Fabulous service, the food was delicious as always. The lounge chairs outside on the patio were comfortable for lounging but not quite as much when sitting up to eat. Noise level was quite comfortable outside. The only tiny downside was the food took a surprisingly long time to arrive considering it wasn’t completely busy, but we weren’t in a huge rush so it was fine. Overall a wonderful dining experience!
