I took my sons out for dinner while visiting them in Victoria. We had amazing food and amazing service. The Keg has consistently great food, and the steaks and seafood are always perfectly cooked so we're never disappointed!!

Great service, really good food and cocktails. The beer selection remains weak: every time we ask about other options we are told that these are available seasonally, however we visit every two months or so and it remains the response regardless of when we visit.

Service and food was outstanding. However because I have hearing aids the background noise was difficult to communicate. But then again that is different and every restaurant

Outstanding meal. I wish I could remember our waiters name. He was a true professional.. thumbs up. I had a 645 reservation on Saturday oct 6th. My name is grant. If the keg gets a copy of this, be sure to tell my waiter he is one to be asked for in the future. Awesome at his job.

We really enjoyed the evening. The idea of reserving on-line was very good. We arrived 20 minutes early but were lead to our table immediately. We were put in a quiet corner booth, so were able to have good conversation. Our waiter, Jordan Mul---was exceptional. One member of our party of 4, has dementia issues and kept asking questions that didn't make sense, but Jordan handled all with tact, and diplomacy.
Our food was great. Steaks were cooked as ordered, not overdone. and as a birthday treat for our friend, a dessert was brought, with 4 spoons to share. A lovely surprise.
We drove in from Sidney, but it was certainly worth it. Obviously, it is better to come on a Thursday, than during the weekend, as it was quieter. Thanks for the lovely evening.

I first went to a Keg restaurant in Banff in 2012, & was blown away by their Chicago style blue cheese fillet steak. Coming back to Canada, I was determined to try it again. Being unable to go to Banff, I decided to try the Keg in Saanich. Again, an amazing steak. My husband also had one & now says he knows what I've been talking about for 6 years. Bravo...

Very disappointed that they couldn't accommodate dairy free options...no rice available without cheese, said it was all pre-made, no margarine instead of butter...mashed potatoes made with mild and butter but no option for roasted potato or dairy free other than a very dry plain baked potato. It took the pleasure out of what could have been a very nice meal.

We go to the keg for the steak. We don't eat beef often, when we do, we go to the keg. We reserve on line and always end up by the kitchen. Which is crap. If we could find great steal elsewhere we would go

My husband and I went to the Keg for our Anniversary. Our special celebration was not celebrated in any way and were constantly rushed through our evening. My husband had to take most of his meal home because we were ‘t ready for it. I the past we have celebrated many special occasions at the keg but that was the last. We spent almost $200 on an extremely uncomfortable and frustrating evening.

Out with good friends for dinner. Staff were great and seated us early as we arrived earlier than our reservations. 👍🏽 Dinner was delicious 😋, most of us had either steak or Prime Rib and they were all done exactly the way we ask. The best thing about dinner besides the food was we never felt rushed. We will be back again.

I was very impressed with the decor of the restaurant it was nicely updated. Just a thought a couple of the tables could see the kitchen pick up area and that would be nice to cover up you get a little noise from that being open, but you do need the access to be spacious enough for the staff to do their job. Yes I will be coming back to have another great meal.

We enjoyed our meals here - a shared caesar salad, the crab cakes and a halibut entree. The service was very professional - splitting our salad without being asked, always present at the right moment. Overall however it didn't feel like that special find - just a seamlessly executed chain restaurant experience.

We have gone the Keg for years and it always holds out as a favourite for special occasions. The new menu items were fantastic and really add to the "foodie" appeal. Keep up the great work. Keeping the tradition of great favourites but staying with the times.

Our waiter was fantastic! He was really attentive and should be teaching a class on how to be a good server. His name was Adrian and he really renewed my faith in the Keg restaurant. The food was great too, but definitely more suitable for special occasions; too pricey for everyday dining.
