Food and Service we're great would've enjoyed myself much better if there wasn't a screaming child I'm going to say 45 min you would think the mom & dad could do something anything at all to make other people's evenings a bit better. I'm give The Keg a 4 out of 5 for food and service. I can't say if... More

I have been to about half of a dozen different Kegs and find that they all have great service. This is especially important when the restaurant is packed. They don't mess around with their steaks that are always very good. I find that the apps can be hit or miss as was the case this time around when the garlic... More

Yes, can be a bit pricey and yes, can be busy most days, but its... More

The keg quality seems to have gone down a few notches. It's still a decent meal with a good steak, but you can see where they are cutting corners with the new menu, cheaper quality bread, and the Billy miner pie doesn't even taste mocha like anymore! The ice cream quality is similar to that cheap 4 litre pail of... More

The Keg Steakhouse was a pretty famous Canadian steakhouse chain, and the food was actually consistently good. With a few options, I still decided to come to the Keg for dinner, despite a very dangerous walk from Courtyard due to the frozen path. I had to walk slowly. The waitress was helpful and I had a nice onion soup and... More
