A good friend and I were at a loose end on a Saturday and decided to be brave and go and try to find some live music in town to dance to. Keystone is a place we frequent for a Thursday tipple and we started (and finished) there. Started with a beautiful dinner (I had the scotch which I would... More

Quick dinner catch up with a friend at Keystone last night. Excellent service, couldn't fault them and the Venison was some of the best I have eaten. I love eating here or next door at Furnace also a great spot to eat out when I visit Hamilton.

We ordered a couple of entrées and several mains all were delicious arriving at the table quickly and... More

We ordered fish and chips and fried chicken. Both were very tasty (chicken a wee bit spicy) and came in a good space of time after arriving at the table. We were asked if we wanted more drinks as we ate, which is awesome service. The waitress was friendly, efficient and did her job exceedingly well. Would happily eat here... More

Went to Keystone for lunch on 3.1.17. After initially being ignored by the wait staff, I went to the bar to order some garlic bread, chicken sliders and fried chicken. The garlic bread took about 50 minutes to arrive, and the chicken about 70 minutes. This was despite the place being relatively quiet. The wait staff were very apologetic but... More

Went for an early dinner with some family so there was 6 of us. We sat outside to take in the last of the rays. Service was pretty good throughout the meal although was provided by at least 3 people so not sure how they get continuity but certainly more than happy with the level of service. We had Pate...

Incredibly average. Keep walking don't waste your time. Disappointed as we had a sensational meal here previously. Bored uninterested and unmotivated staff. Bland food that did not taste particularly fresh due to recent public holidays. Only offered bar snack menu even when we stated we wanted a table for four for lunch. All food tasted the same drenched in one... More
