Great steak

With some food chains, I find the food can taste packaged but this is not the case with the Keg. We had calamari as well as a baked Brie to start. Delicious and I enjoyed the dipping sauces included with both. The steak was cooked to perfection and you can't say that about all restaurants... read more

The Keg has been a well liked downtown eatery for near 35 years. We were in Moncton in the Summer 2013 and we ate at their Keg. It was a terrible meal. Food, service and ambiance were awful. My last visit to the Keg Halifax was at least six years ago. Having a KEG gift card for 15 months sitting... More

The Keg is one of our "usual" spots for date night. The food and service is always consistent. Yes, you will probably have to wait a while if you show up on a Friday or Saturday night. It's a popular spot and they can only accommodate so many people at one. Last weekend we waited an hour for a table.... More

Too bad you have to wait so long for a table, People do, however, and it is because the Keg is consistently good.If your steak is not done the way you like it,no problem in having it done to your satisfaction.Caesar salad very good and deserts excellent. A bit pricey but as they say, "You get what you pay for... More

What does $31 get you... not much, a dried out, overcooked piece of salmon and a plop of tasteless ,mashed potatoes. Never saw the brussels sprouts that were on the menu. Seriously, $31 ???? Unbelievable that we stood in a line up outside on a cold weekend night to be gouged!!! (they don't take reservations... Never again!!! Overpriced and under... More

No matter what city you travel to, you can always count on the Keg to deliver superior food and great service. Went here last night for dinner with a few girlfriends, we had probably one to many cocktails... (hence my hangover today), and delicious delicious food!!! Had to say it twice because last night was probably the best steak I... More

We do not dine out a lot but anytime we do the Keg is always on the list. This is a casual dining experience with a regular dining area as well as a bar area. Celebrated with my daughter here a week ago. We both had fantastic meals. I won't go into detail but suffice it to say I have... More

My wife and I came here on Valentine's Day, which also happens to be our Anniversary. Admittedly, the main reason we chose The Keg was that we had received a gift card for Christmas. It is too far out of the way and too pricey for us to visit frequently. Our last visit was probably 10 years ago, and before... More
