Third time in a row I have had the Arctic char and delicious every time. Don't ever remove it from the menu. The food at the keg may be a little pricey but is always excellent. Great service too.

We went to The Keg for our Anniversary dinner as it is walking distance from our home so we could both enjoy a glass or two of wine. We were seated right outside the kitchen so they get minus one star for that. Maybe next time I'll request a table away from the kitchen. Our waiter, Cam, was excellent. Very attentive. I had the Filet Mignon and my husband had the Prime Rib and they were both cooked to perfection. Cam asked if it was a special occasion and we did receive a complimentary Billy Miner Pie for dessert! That was a surprise. Since it's so close to home, I'm sure we will be back.

In a word, consistency. Frequent dinner at The Keg and never leave disappointed. Prefer the Fort St. location, but opted for Saanich this visit. Server was spot on, but table was upstairs after requesting main floor seating (for elderly guests). Noise level was high and made for a less than desirable dining experience. Hate to say it, but was surrounded by 3 families with very young children who cried and screamed throughout the evening. Sorry people, but The Keg shouldn't be your first choice for young family dining. Please consider Red Robin or White Spot or take the plunge and hire a sitter for the evening so their can be a considerate dining experience for all guests. Thank you.

You can't go wrong with what you choose from their menu. My favourite is always their Prime Rib classic dish. Great atmosphere at the Quadra location.

The appies (shrimp and escargot) were very good and the bread was hot!! The main meals ( salmon and prime rib) were extremely good. The steak was melt in your mouth and the pistachio salmon was so flavourful. We were too full and satisfied for dessert....next time for sure.

The restaurant had a nice vibe and the staff were attentive and helpful.

Thank you for helping us celebrate our 31st anniversary.

Sincerely,
Philip and Colleen

Enjoyed our meal for the most part. They sat us on the ground floor which we find a bit quieter. The service was top notch and the food arrived hot and well cooked. My only negative was the cut of meat that I received , the 8 oz. sirloin cut, had too much gristle on one end and I had a hard time to cut thought it.

As usual it was a very enjoyable night but for the very first time my 2LB lobster was overcooked so at that price i will probably not risk ordering it again. When i got to the tail it was mushy Very disappointing

We always celebrate our anniversary at The Keg.My wife has always enjoyed a large lobster tail but this year was limited to two smaller tails which did not have the taste of the larger tail. Service was good although the kitchen made a mistake in our order so had a longer wait. Very good but not the best we’ve had

Food and service fantastic but it was very busy for a week day and it was loud... our parents are elderly and they could not hear the table conversation... neither could I... also the business seemed to be related to several large group gatherings... this added to the noise level... and I think the slow service... again the food fantastic but it took a couple of hours to receive our food and I think this was due to how busy it was... there were people serving who wore suits so I think management was helping out... this would not detract me from going again.. but I will definitely think about taking our parents
( due to the loud back ground noise) and how hungry I am... because of the wait for our food.

My husband and I took my 12 year old granddaughter to celebrate her graduation from elementary school.
I requested a booth and upon our arrival we were immediately shown to one in a quiet corner.
Our waiter was excellent and brought me a sample of the house wine, which I was unsure of.
The Arctic Char entree I had was the most delicious seafood dish I have ever eaten in a restaurant! My husband and granddaughter enjoyed their steak and French onion soup respectively.
It was a delightful experience from start to finish.
My only suggestion would be that in the smaller isolated corners that the new design creates I would prefer to have softer instrumental music so that conversation is easier to hear.
We'll be back!

We have enjoyed the Keg for years. Great food and service.

We had requested a quiet table for 4 for our anniversary. We booked an early reservation to get ahead of the rush. Good news for the Keg, they were packed at 5:30. Bad news for us, there was no quiet table and we were at a smaller table.

It would have been nice if we were informed in advance that a quiet table was not possible. I should have phoned and talked to the restaurant instead of using opentable for the reservation.

The food was very good as was the service, just in no way quiet. We have had nice quiet spot in the past but definitely not this time.

If you have special occasion, like an Anniversary, definitely phone to confirm.

We have dined at the Keg frequently in the past. However, on out latest 2 visits, our steaks were tasty but extremely tough. So much so that on Saturday, I piled the gristle and unchewable parts on my side plate.

The food was excellent as always and cooked just the way we liked it. I was very pleased that we were provided with a nice quiet table that was not booked for a "fast turnover". This enabled us to enjoy a relaxing visit as my friend and I had much to get caught up on and didn't want to rush an excellent meal. Thanks to all for being so accommodating.

We had an excellent time at the Keg; awesome service, delicious food and great ambiance. We had a few missing items when our meal came but our server was on it and got us sorted quickly. He went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and even sang Happy Birthday to our friend! It was an awesome evening and I would highly recommend this location.

Although I noted poor service, in fairness, our waiter was apparently new but it was obvious from his service that he simply had not received enough training before being on his own and this is the fault of management, not his.
We have been to the Keg many times previously and will return again but this time it did not meet normal expectations.
