We have been Keg customers for over 30 yrs. The Keg has changed. We have changed with it. Still love everything about it and the steak of course. Our server Holly was great and served us very well despite COVID changes.

Thanks to the management and staff for a great meal again!!

Second time (previous booking canceled due to thunderstorm) booking patio seating to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Was seated on time at a table for 2, which was acceptable; however, our table was located just outside the canopy tent set up for patio dining. Due to the breeze, we had to eat quickly so our food would not become cold, not to fond of cold lobster & steak. Other tables were available under the canopy and there were parties of 2 seated there? Oh well, food was great & so was the server, just wished we could’ve really savoured the taste

Belated birthday from March 2020.
All good until tent tables got full and younger customers started table hopping and hugging and visiting.
Those of us trying to follow protocols and keep safe found it terrible to witness. U can’t take chances.
Even though our numbers are low, we still need to be careful and show respect for other patrons.
Please have the staff remind the youth there is still a pandemic going on. Someone needs to be in charge there.

No more candle under tray of butter for lobster... just microwaved warm butter in little bowl. Waitress didn't even understand what I was talking about.

Food was good! I feel like they have increased their portion sizes which is great because in the past I seemed to have always left hungry. I do wish they would serve separate bread for each couple / person at the table though during COVID to eliminate multiple people at a table touching the same food. I liked the large amount of space between tables to allow distancing. Overall, great food and fun night!

Our Caesar salad wasn’t the best,have had better at the Keg before,dressing seemed a bit vinegary, as not mixed enough. We didn’t care for the music that was playing.
Rest of meal good ,service good.

I ordered my steak well done and when I cut into it, it was still bloody. They offered me a dessert but I am diabetic so that didn’t work. The waiter offered taking my friend’s wine off her bill which obviously would do nothing for me. Then offered me coffee or tea, I don’t drink either. I suggested a free appetizer the next time I go there. They ended up taking the steak off my bill. I was very happy with that.

The Keg has become our 'special place' ... not necessarily meaning there's a special event, but it's just, over time, become 'our go to place' for a 'time out', a bit of 'spoiling', a great meal, friendly and competent service, comfort and relaxation. It has never disappointed us. Tonight was no different. We were greeted warmly on our arrival, immediately escorted to our table, and very quickly were attended to by our Server Morgan. Morgan herself was attentive, informed in relation to the menu, AND the 'night's specials', and she was also very friendly, accommodating (with our 'keto' request) and efficient. She repeatedly 'checked in' with us to make sure all of our needs were met. The meal, as always was excellent, and our 'new' addition was the cauliflower potatoes, which Morgan recommended, and we loved. And, as always, Brittney, Restaurant Manager, attended in the graciousness and kindness she is known for. She is a 'gem', and she sets the bar high. Thanks again for a wonderful experience 'out'.

When you pay 47 dollars for a strip loin steak and the steak is sinewy it's very disappointing. Because I had scallops wrapped in bacon and a wedge salad for an app I was too full to eat my steak dinner so I took it home. When eating it the next evening I couldn't even chew a piece. Landed up giving it to my Golden Retreiver. I was anticipating such a great meal that night.
Well, I heard from an employee at the Keg by phone and it sounded like she was blaming me for the way the steak turned out. She said she'd talk to the Manager and Server and hasn't gotten back to me. Hmmmm!

Thank you for your feedback. We understand that you were not pleased with the quality of your steak when you had it the following day. We take a lot of pride in our steaks. The best way to enjoy them is right off the grille, served in the restaurant. As a gesture of good will, we would be happy to replace your steak. Please call me to set up a reservation as I would like to personally ensure you fully enjoy a New York steak properly served within our establishment. -Brittany, General Manager

The Keg does better with dinners for two than it does larger tables. Speed does not suffer, but quality does. Prime rib is consistently good, but steaks are hit and miss. A little while ago the cost of the main courses were waived they were so disappointing. Now we see it is becoming the new normal and we don’t mention it. It is very difficult to keep a conversation going for all the noise. It is less a family restaurant now than a festive party venue. I am very happy for the success of its expansion, but customer experience has suffered for it. We will return because in Thunder Bay options are few. But it won’t be with the same anticipation.

Our server Sarah,was the absolute best...fast,friendly,funny...and I know her,so it was a pleasant surprise!
My Husband’s prime rib was pretty fatty,but he really enjoyed the au jus & veg (he actually found the horseradish too overpowering...that’s a 1st for him lol)...& my Caesar salad could have had real bacon in it,with homemade croutons,for the price.
This was my Husband’s birthday dinner,and the free Billy Miner’s Pie was a yummy bonus...we used a gift card from his son,so all in all,a nice dining experience!

Prime rib was nowhere near as good as it used to be...tough ..presentation not appealing
Top sirloin steak was also tough
Service was excellent ..very busy New Years Eve but everyone was fantastic (except for the food) We have eaten at this Keg a lot and the food is usually great, so this was disappointing

Just a warning to anyone wanting to make a reservation for this restaurant. The app asks if you want to sit on the bar side or the dining room side. I chose to reserve on the bar side but was told that they “don’t like really do reservations for the bar” when I arrived. The bar side was packed and there was nowhere to sit.
