Went to the Keg for X-Mas Dinner with co-workers Dec. 5th 2014, and many times in the past. It's hard to have a bad meal there, something for everyone & good atmosphere. Ordered several starters, all as expected. The Bacon Wrapped Scallops seem to get smaller every year, but that might be the trend. No Goat Cheese this year, and... More

We took a relative here for dinner on Friday night. We had great service, however the Prime Rib as well as the Ribs she had were both lacking in taste and tenderness. The Prime Rib is our usual order, but it lacked the nice tenderness and marbling we have become accustomed to at The Keg. The Ribs were just 'fair'.... More

This year I am on study exchange at Dalhousie Universtiy in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and the main way this has impacted my life is.... I have to eat meal hall food every day. EVERY. DAY. So since it was my friend's 19th birthday, we decided we needed no better excuse to treat ourselves to a nice steak. And we were... More

This is a great steakhouse and they also do very good ribs. Very nice atmosphere; quiet and refined. You will not be disappointed if you love a good steak.

My wife and I were visiting Halifax for her annual 39th birthday celebration. I decided to take her to the keg this year for two reasons, it is where we had our first date and more importantly it was across the road from our hotel. Our meals were both good, I had the prime rib and my wife enjoyed the... More

Held a staff event with 11 guests - only issue was they don't take reservations so we had to have a good number of the group go early to ensure we got seating. Once we were in, everything went smoothly. The Keg is always consistent. The food was what we expected and the service was prompt and friendly. The margaritas... More

We just recently had dinner at the Keg for our 2nd anniversary. We made reservations in advance and mentioned that it was a special occasion, but when we arrived the hostess was not able to find our reservation. That was fine, she still found us a booth and we had a great dinner. The waitress was very friendly and helpful,... More

Restaurant is busy with a nice atmosphere. The menu is good and the ingredients top rate. Cooking is as it should be. The Bar is noisy, but suffices for a quick dinner, whilst the Restaurant itself is divided into a number of rooms which have a more intimate feel. On Saturdays it's first come first served, no reservations and boy... More
