The service was very good, the appetizers (tuna tartare and grilled cauliflower) were very tasty, but the crab cakes had a rather greasy taste..too much after the grilled cauliflower. My husband liked his ribs and the tuna, but mine wasn’t great.

On top of it, a rather talkative server nearby was loud and tedious to hear. Might return, but would steer clear of deep fried things.

The food was excellent, as I expected since I’ve been to many Keg restaurants over the years, and even worked at one in my 20s. The service was good, if anything I would say that the server seemed nervous. He struggled a little opening our bottle of wine, and the wine service wasn’t perfect (but oh well). He also took away my utensils and forgot to bring me new ones until I asked. Another thing: don’t ask your table about their food until they’ve had some to eat! He was too fast asking us how our food was. But overall, very good.

It was good but not as much as the reputation. We were 6, first time for me and I will probably not go back. Way to expensive for what we got. Service was just ok. She broke the cork in two pieces without saying anything, forgot my daughter plate (after a while I had to ask for it) and many wine drops on the table. At that price, I would have expected more.

Fabulous birthday dinner for my husband. Had the prime rib as we always have when we come to The Keg. It has to be the best prime rib served anywhere! Cooked to perfection and mouth-watering. Also a delicious ice cream cake dessert with a candle on top was brought to us compliments of The Keg to celebrate my husband's birthday. All in all a fantastic night. Can't wait to go back again!

We felt our waiter should be selling used cars as he was over the top trying to sell various items (discontinued expensive wine). I like to hear about specials but we found it a excessive and annoying. He did not top up our wine after we sat with empty glasses and I finally asked another fellow for another round.

our meal was great, server was good but the table we were at was a tight fit, table 27, even the waiter almost hit the gentleman by accident at the table next to us. we had a to go box afterwards, asked for my plate of food but not the rib bone (rib steak) and the mushrooms or veggies did not make it in the take home container, was looking forward to them for my lunch the next day. Also they have changed the cherrys on the cheesecake, granted i have not ordered it in a long time so not sure how long ago it was but they were not the best, I liked the other style they used to have. All that aside it was a nice special dinner treat for my husband and I.

The food is absolutely amazing...however we did find it just a little expensive for the quantity of food we received. The service was amazing and the waitress was very friendly. We did find it quite noisy, but that could be just the other diners at that particular time of the evening. Overall, it was a lovely evening out...although a little expensive.

My husband's food was pretty fatty for prime rib. There was a 40th birthday party going on right next to us. Very noisy. Had to shout to talk to each other. We ended up leaving before dessert or another glass of wine. A little disappointed but over all was good. Your server was wonderful. Michael.

the shrimp cocktails were NOT up to your standard. My wife and I always look forward to them. They were different this time, slightly smaller size, more translucent, softer, and not as tasty. Please look at resourcing these, as we have had hundreds of your other shrimp cocktails, and would not reorder them if this is the "new" style.

We were seated on a noisier, less formal side. Next time well ask to be on the bar side where it appears to be less family style and has much more ambiance.

Service was excellent from the second we walked in to the moment we walked out. Cost for the meal was a bit much for what we recieved. We had the 10 oz prime rib but was mostly fat and about 5oz of meat. Dinner and 2 drinks $133.00 wow.

Have a reservation, but yet once we ate our meal thes manager told us we had to leave because people were waiting for our table. I’m sorry I had a 120 dollar bill but once we ate our dinner you kick us out. I thought the point of a reservation was so we could take our time and enjoy each other’s company. I would love for the general manager, or even district manager to talk to me. Terrible customer service. I get it might be a busy night, maybe you should open earlier, or maybe take less reservation, going on a date night shouldn’t feel rushed especially when the food takes an hour to come out, and we feel rushed to eat and get out.

Enjoyable meal. Food was excellent, service was really friendly and attentive. Really loud group behind us was the only downside. I feel like sitting beside a large group should be optional when having made a reservation.

Food tasted delicious as always! We tried the tuna tartare for the first time and it was great. Our server, Joel, recommended a sesame sauce for it and it was the perfect addition. I also tried the featured butchers cut for dinner and husband went with the all time favourite, prime rib. Food was great and perfect portion. It was the two of us for my husbands bday and a big group was initially seated right beside us and it was getting pretty loud and disturbing. However. without us saying anything and not too long after they were seated, the group was moved by our server to a different section before they ordered. What a great idea! And a relief :) Made for a nice quiet dinner. We ended it with a yummy Billie miner pie to celebrate the bday! Our server was kind and nice to chat with. He came to check if we needed anything but mostly left us to enjoy the evening, which was appreciated: Will be back again for sure!

Went to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Server was great! Wasn't sure what wine to choose and she brought me a couple samples, which I appreciated. My steak was hard to cut with tendons through it. Was supposed to come with mushrooms...it came with 4. I wasn't impressed for the price. My boyfriend enjoyed his prime rib, it looked really good, with little fat. Dessert was awesome. All in all was pretty good...I would go back and try the prime rib next time.

Hello,
We made the reservation a couple months in advance for 6:00 PM. We were seated within 5 minutes. Our seat was a comfortable booth in a middle section, which was not what I had hoped for, given our 43rd anniversary. I did mention that in the reservation process. Our server, Gabby, was very knowledgeable and, while it was a very busy Saturday night, managed to keep us on time for our show. Our only issue was a kitchen issue with the wrong vegetable on my wife's plate, but it was quickly resolved and we still ate our meals at the same time. The area supervisor, sorry I didn't get his name, was there to ensure our issue was dealt with appropriately. Our particular section had a fireplace, but the seating is not centered on it,actually hidden by the table in front of it, so you only get to see a bit of it. That would have made it a better view. Overall the service, friendliness, and entire experience left us happy and satisfied. Thanks for an enjoyable date night.

I love The Keg but my past visit was less than awesome. My husband enjoyed his meal but found his fish to be dry. I ordered the steak and lobster special and was very disappointed. For $40 it was not a good value. The steak was not very big but the amount of lobster was almost a joke.

Music too loud. Tables too close together. I could put my elbow on next table.
Everyone had something different. Some portions were skimpier than usual. The food was very good but not outstanding.
All wait staff was exceptional, very nice.
Lines up of waiting people in entrance and bar area made it difficult to move around to bathroom or even to get out!
