We had been given a gift card for this restaurant. We hadn't eaten here for many many years as we now live an hour + from the city. We both were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food & service. Yes, the renovations are not completed yet. This had no impact what so ever on our dining experience. Our waiter... More

We are frequent visitors to the Keg at home on the West Coast and have definite expectations of the food quality, it is always excellent. However that was not the case with this Keg the food was not up to the standards that we expect. The teriyaki steak was tough and not really very tasty as well as the accompanying... More

Took a while to get in and I can see why. Good menu and reasonable pricing. Server was excellent. Steak was overcooked but the response was great, got another streak and complimentary wine for the inconvenience, the manager got involved. Food was excellent and servings were large. Atmosphere is romantic and would go back.

Arrived tired in Halifax and chose the restaurant across from the hotel. What could go wrong with steak? Tired restaurant, although it is slated to close at the end of the month for renovations. Lackluster service. Opted for a bacon scallop appetizer - tasteless. Chopped salad - boring. The bacon didn't have enough smoke for me and was like eating... More

The Halifax Keg is by far the best of the Keg chain in the Maritimes! We have never been disappointed with our meals there! Money well spent for a special meal!

Nice location, clean and a good atmosphere. Free water tasted good. Meat came as ordered. Waiter was knowledgable and fast. Free WIFI did not work on multiple devices.

The Keg is always a good go-to for steak and seafood. Normally the ambience is great, and that makes dinner more enjoyable, particularly at the locations that have the newer cocktail bar feel to them. The Halifax Keg has none of that charm or upscale feel, rather it feels a bit like a steak house in a strip mall. It... More
