As always, our meal at the Keg in Oro Valley was wonderful. The service was impeccable. We had Prime Rib and the special of Short Ribs both meals were amazing and delicious. We love going here for a nice meal and recommend it to everyone.

We had a great dinner after a movie at the Keg. We really liked our server, Duncan, who was very friendly and funny. I liked the variety of items on the menu since we weren't super hungry (too much popcorn!) Their bar menu was available at the table and had great lighter fare. Very nice dinner!

My wife ordered a chocolate martini, and it was awful. The manager came to our table and apologized for the drink ... he said it was awful. He then said he would not charge us for it.

Also water was not given to us until we asked for towards the end of our meal. The server did apologize.

I ordered my steak medium to rare. It was pink. I didn’t send it back because I didn’t want to make a scene.

The food was excellent!! My wife had prime rib with a lobster tail and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the peppercorn New York strip with a twice baked potato. Incredibly delicious. So, food taste and temperature was where we would expect for the price point.

Now, let's discuss the service. This was our 26th wedding anniversary. I ticked the radio button in the OT app, "Anniversary".

Upon arrival, the hostess was not super welcoming (ex. She had a difficult time looking up from her screen when we walked up) and then could not find our reservation. She asked if we received a confirmation email (which we had). When we offered to go get my phone from the car, she did not try to dissuade us, so my wife went back for the phone. While my wife was gone she asked one of the ladies to direct me to a table (I told the lady that we would wait for my wife to get back). The hostess never said 'oh, I found it. Sorry.' Not one word to me. I did mention to her that it was our anniversary. No acknowledgement.

When my wife got back with my phone, which was no longer needed, we were directed to our table. We asked for the patio (also noted in the OT app) and were told where the patio was and go ahead and pick any table. Then the lady was directed to show us where the patio was. When we selected a table, we noted that it had not been wiped down since the previous guests (several wine rings and a few crumbs left).

Things got better at this point as the servers had a busser come quickly. One of the ladies asked for our drink order and had bread brought out quickly. Drinks arrived and our server was friendly and helpful with the menu and even helped light the outdoor heaters. Then, she dropped the ball. After she cleared our plates, there was no question asked about dessert. She just brought the check. No apology. No mention of our anniversary. Nada. She seemed surprised that we might want something more. Ahh yes, service. NOT!

My husband and I were celebrating our 15th wedding Anniversary and Logan our server made us feel extra special celebrating. In addition to Logan superior service, the chef made an special visit to our table and gave us two glasses of Champaign. Thank you to both, you really made our evening!

Food had no taste. I had chicken Oscar and it was blah. Mashed potatoes were the best thing on the plate. Way overpriced for a chicken thigh and two shrimp.

The Keg never disappoints. It’s my husband’s go to for prime rib and while I’m not a big red meat eater, the pistachio crusted salmon was fabulous. The servers are friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The management is always visible and welcoming. The overall ambiance is the best you can find in the Tucson area. The bar area can get loud, but the dining room is perfect.

We arrived at 5PM for Happy Hour and were seated at a nice table in the bar.
Loaded Nachos, Crispy fried Cauliflower, and chicken wings were ordered, along with wine.
Our server was terrific, attentive but not overly and she was just so nice and friendly!

Food and service was great, wish I had known about this particular Happy Hour sooner!

We will be back!

We have eaten at The Keg a number of times, and it has always been, without exception, the finest restaurant in the whole area. The food and staff are superb.
This time we were celebrating our anniversary, and the staff made it all the more special.

A big thank you to The Keg, John

The cauliflower mash was a little bland but the meatloaf was delicious. As always the prime rib was on point.

As per my reservation on Open Table, it was a special birthday for a family member. At no point was there any recognition of this. Drink order for our guest was not available, McCallan 12 YO, a staple at restaurants with $40+ dinner entrees. Dinner came very quickly after we ordered. No surprise, the meals which were placed in front of 3 out of 4 guests were not ours!!! Not so sure how happy I would have been if our meals were placed in front of others!

Service was slow. Our server showed up to see how we were doing as we were finishing our dinner. The woman who delivered our meals was not pleasant. I ordered the beef short rib special which was mostly fat and disgusting. The crab mushroom appetizer was delicious! We were very disappointed and will not be back. My husband left a hefty tip which was not deserving.

We decided on a spur of the moment to come down to The Keg on a Friday afternoon. After checking Open Table, the only time left was 4:30. Now I know I'm getting old, but 4:30 is a little early even for me. My 90-year-old father used to go into panic mode about 4:00 pm, anxious to get to the local restaurant for the "early-bird-special" which began at 4:30. Maybe I'm becoming my dad - shudder. Anyway, it was kind of cool having the quietness and just a few other groups eating. We only wanted appetizers, so we ordered off the bar menu. My wife had the French onion soup and one of my prime rib sliders. I had four sliders minus the one for my wife. Besides that, we had the shrimp cocktail. All the food was very good as usual, but what really made everything great was our server, Justin. We had Justin for our server shortly after he started at The Keg, and he seemed a bit nervous, but now he has settled in and he is comfortable with his position. He is efficient, friendly, funny and we really enjoy his conversation - he is also intelligent. He's a good server and a good guy. I'm glad The Keg has him as an employee.

My daughter and I decided to have dinner together. I wanted to sit on the patio to enjoy the nice evening weather. I was surprised that the host does not seat u when u request the patio. We seated ourselves and the servers were not initially aware we were there. No menus No water, No drinks. It would be better that the hosts help
Out. The servers were working their tails off. They could have used the assistance. Once service was established everything went like clockwork. Filet was good not not the best. Still hoping foe a better steak from there.

The food is ok. Not worth the cost of a full meal. It really looks and tasted like appetizers were frozen and cooked in the oven just like as if you were at home. The entree was ok, not much flavor in the steaks, the mushrooms that come with it were highly overcooked and vegetables were dry. Potatoes definitely were from a freezer and then cooked in oven. The food is not fresh food there.

The restaurant is wonderful for a special occasion. The food was excellent except for the calamari. It was rubbery and basically uneatable. We told waiter and he just ignored the comment.

Service is great. Wine by glass selection is good and they have options of 6 or 9 oz glasses. Good choices good. They cook exactly as you want it. We ordered all 4 veggie sides and all delicious. Their Dijon vinegarette is delicious; I had it as option on wedge. Ray, the Kitchen Leader, is wonderful and has been there a long time. We had Caleb as the server and he was very good.

We enjoyed our evening with OK food, good friendly service, and a nice ambience outside. The only thing we do not like about the Keg is the incredibly loud noise. The music is perhaps loud but you cannot really hear it about the noise of the people who are perhaps shouting at each other to be heard!

Excellent service from server Duncan! The food was wonderful. I have Celiac Disease so much eat gluten free. This is a safe place for me. The kitchen does a very good job of keeping cross contamination to an acceptable level. The only thing that was not 5 star was the noise level. It could have been where we were seated. This is our ‘go to’ place for a dependably nice meal.

We sat in the bar area above the main section and it was comfortable, cozy, a little off the beaten path and very easy to carry on a conversation without having to shout to be heard.
Appetizer selection was good and food great.
Service and attention above what we normally get in any surrounding restaurants.
Staff very attentive!!
