I don't get here often as it is expensive. We arrived at 5pm on a cold Saturday night after skating at the Oval. There was already a huge crowd. We were told 30 to 45 minute wait but it only took 15 minutes perhaps because we were only a party of two. Our waiter Adam was very knowledgeable and helpful... More

Restaurant has been around for decades. First time back in several years as I was given a gift card. Probably won't return. Recently renovated , thus nice atmosphere, BUT - No coat hooks. Halifax is a cold/damp/windy city and you risk hypothermia if uncloaked October thru May. Staff were friendly. Steaks were prepared as ordered, but portions were on the... More

Had a truly excellent meal. Only 2 courses.....Thai Fishcakes (delicious), then had the fillet steak with peppercorn sauce, twice baked potato and Ceaser Salad.. Amazing! Sadly, I couldn't quite finish it all! The waiter ....and all the staff...were friendly and helpful.

We went to the Keg on New Years Eve. They do not accept reservations so it's first come first serve. They told me on the phone that it could be an hour to an hour and a half wait for a table but we thought we would take the chance. They opened at 4:00 and I mistaken presumed that most... More

We even managed dessert but Billy Miner Pie was too much for me but with help it was all eaten. Good server friendly & efficent. No complaints... More

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.
