Never will we come back here and this place threw us off the keg, completely. Staff was extremely nice however. We thought the keg would be a good, sure bet to get a good steak while on our honeymoon and we're we wrong. The steak was almost completely unseasoned, both of ours were over done and they felt tough. I... More

We came to the keg here to celebrate our birthdays. What treat! the Steak was perfect. The caesar salad very good and garlicky. The bread was fresh and warm. The mushrooms and baked potato so good! The beer and caesar drink excellent too!/ No room was left for dessert though! The server was very good.

Our last night in Banff was rewarded with the best meal of the week. I had the Fillet Mignon along with vegetables and Keg fries and it was awesome. Steak was cooked perfectly for me and every mouthful was sumptuous. Others at the table had similar experiences, although my wife was disappointed not to get her mushroom burger, but had... More

Visited The Key Downtown Banff Tuesday evening which was a disappointment. This location certainly did not meet my accustomed level of service and high food quality standards experienced at other locations as in Edmonton. Waiter service substandard and main entree food was cold (garlic mashed potatoes). No offer or effort made to adjust for cold food.

The portions were huge, and the steak deal - where you get a salad to start etc - was good. The steak was a little undercooked, but still very tasty. I had the rack of ribs which were great. Atmosphere is pretty basic, and the toilets are a very long way from the restaurant but other than that it was... More

Ate on two occasions: once in the restaurant and once in the bar. Our memory of this Keg was the upstairs restaurant was the more intimate. On these two occasions we visited, the opposite was true and certainly while the restaurant was the more quiet of the two. However, service in both is consistently high and the steak is faultless....

We stopped here for a nice dinner to top off our winter getaway weekend. We are Keg regulars, typically visiting a few different ones in Calgary. Literally, EVERY time we visit one in Calgary, my steak is cooked wrong. Either raw, or extremely well done. I usually get my steak cooked medium. The Banff Downtown location actually cooked it right!... More

The steak and shrimp were just delicious. This is the second time I have ordered it and I will continue. I find the steak meals a little so large and pricey so I tend to order this plate. The service was great and fast.

My husband and I really enjoyed dinner at The Keg. There is a very nice atmosphere and the service was great and very friendly. We both had steaks (fillet mignon and New York strip) and the Chicago style cooking was perfect. Reasonable price for a nice bottle of Italian red wine.
