There’s no cosier place for comfort food on a cold, dark winter night than this Keg. The traditional decor - there’s even a fire blazing! - is just what you want to enjoy the superb prime rib. Service is attentive and the house wines are great value.

We like the food, ambiance, and service. We ordered filet mignon, peppercorn New York and Billy Miner pie. All very delicious. Kristy who served us was very nice and attentive. We then learned that Billy Miner pie was named after a train robber.

We had a very good dinner and our waitress was excellent! The Granville Keg is our favorite one as the parking is convenient and after dinner we enjoy walking around Granville Island. We were very pleased that my husbands birthday was recognized but unfortunately were not able to enjoy the desert as we were tooo full from dinner! :)

Warm Regards,
Wendy Yuen

We came from Whitehorse,Yukon to celebrate our be-lated anniversary at the Keg! Well worth the wait, the flight and the taxi ride! We had the $40. arrangement and it was amaZING!!! We are never disappointed with the food, but this particular meal would easily get one of our top 10 in our lives! And we're kind of old-ish! We enjoyed our waiter, Robert, Very much! He was professional and approachable - and funny!! He made us feel like we were his top priority!
Thank-You!!

We went for the dine out menu. For the starters both salad and mushroom soup were tasty. The coffee crust sirloin was so good that it kinda amazed me. But the baked potatoes was not so good for today dinner both the twice baked and simple baked potatoes. The skin was kinda hard to eat.
The Billy miner pie for dessert was delicious but just a little too sweet for me. The touch of adding almond makes it more sweet tolerable. But the caramel decorations is kinda too sweet for my own preference.
Good service, a little loud but reasonable since the whole restaurant was packed.
Would definitely come again. :)

We came to The Keg in Granville Island for my girlfriend's birthday. We arrived a little too early for our reservation so we started at the bar. Got the Sunday Special; a red Sangria and a Moscow Mule. Our waitress was funny and quick witted, professional at her job and very friendly. I got the Prime Rib (medium rare) with an add on of grilled Jumbo prawns with a side of double stuffed baked potato. My girlfriend had the Steak (medium) and Lobster combination with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. Their horseradish was extremely well made; a lot spicier than I remembered, gave a good ol big kick to my tongue (really good). Overall, our experience was amazing. Celebrated her 24th birthday at the Keg.

Great atmosphere and staff was really quick with answering questions and providing amazing service! My mother was impressed with the quality of food and service compared to other locations! It was a great experience for me as we were celebrating both my sisters and girlfriends birthdays! They really accommodated us well. This is the reason why we also come back to the keg, there is no other restaurant that provides this amazing service and really cares about their customers.

We have enjoyed the Keg on a number of occasions and while we had an okay evening, there are some disappointments we wish to bring to your attention.

We have received a number of gift cards to the Keg from family and friends.
1.One was for a hundred dollars which we used part of at the Park Royal Keg last fall. There was about thirty dollars left unused. My husband did not receive the card back only the receipt with the balance and was told to just show the receipt.
2 We received a second card for two hundred dollars which we used at the Granville Island Keg. Again, there was about thirty dollars left on it. This time the card was returned with the
balance. Then we received another card for fifty dollars for Christmas.
3. When we went to pay for our dinners on Sunday at the Granville Island Keg, my husband provided the waitress with all the cards and the receipt which should have equaled about 110.00 but the waitress indicated that only the cards were valid. We had a guest with us so my husband did not raise a fuss or question it as an issue. It just seems strange.

Regarding our food my husband and I shared the roast beef and while there was a lot of fat on the piece I had, it was tasty and done well.

Our guest ordered the 20 ounce Rib Eye. It looked awful and I tasted a little piece and was shocked at the toughness and lack of flavour. Again I am sure our guest did not want to raise a fuss. But for forty dollars it was shockingly awful.

We were seated in a booth where a mother decided to absent herself from her companions as the baby was howling. She chose to stand trying to comfort the infant right behind my friend’s seat. We could hardly carry on a conversation.

We did enjoy our friend’s company and our dessert. Excellent creme brûlée.

The server we had was always on a rush. One time, I was asking him something he was too busy taking off so quickly he didn't even bother to stop and ask what was my request. He just took off.
The food is not good. But I have to give one good note, when my friend said we are sharing, the cook actually spilt the one course meal into two plates for us. That was the only thing that's awesome.

Was a very nice evening out with my girl, new romance! I have never in 30 years had a bad meal or bad experience at a keg ever! She recommended the Granville Island and I have never been to that location. It was over the top! The staff was the best, service great and the food OMG! So good! All this on a Monday night! We closed the place down and we will be back for sure!
Cheers to a great crew and experience ❤️

Absolutely love the keg and they never fail. From the service to the delicious meals there is nothing to improve. Today I came and my steak was a little burnt but it’s always been perfect so it’s nothing that would sip me from coming here. I didn’t complain because it was still delicious but others have told me they will credit a part of your bill, so again amazing customer service!

Thank you Keg and your employees and compliments to the chef for cooking a great steak!

The bar service and appetizers served there were great! Not impressed with our dining experience. Food was okay but nothing outstanding with very little included in the price and the price was expensive for what was offered. The only thing our waiter did was go get our meal when I told him we seemed to be waiting a long time for our food. Oh yes, he was full of excuses as to why he hadn’t taken our order, etc etc. Really? I could have brought our kids if I wanted to hear empty excuses over diner. We tried a Keg in Victoria last year and it was terrible. Unfortunately my employer thinks gift cards for the Keg is a good idea.

Our family came to the Keg this Sunday (Nov. 19th) to celebrate my birthday. We had a great table, in the middle, right by the fire. Our server couldn't have been nicer! My granddaughter got an appetizer soon after she and her parents arrived. Much appreciated! We found the food and choices excellent, as per usual. Both myself and my son-in-law sampled the draft beer selection. I always get a steak at the Keg, getting the Steak Oscar. Could not have been better! Everyone, including my very fussy sister-in-law, was happy with their selection. Finally, our server brought me a delicious almond ice cream with a candle to help me celebrate. This made my day truly special. Thank you for your wonderful service and food! Always a treat to eat at the Granville Keg. Bob S.
