My husband and I went to The Keg for our 13th anniversary this evening. Neither of us had ever dined there and we were extremely pleased with every minute of the experience. We had very friendly prompt service, greeted the second we walked in and escorted to our table very quickly. The atmosphere is very nice, dark and intimate. The... More

We arrived to the restaurant at 9pm after a long day in the Nova Scotia sun. The Keg closed at 10pm so we had to be quick. We ordered drinks and a starter and had our food out to our table by 9:20. Very fast, the food was excellent. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Our server was great, and friendly.... More

We happened across this restaurant because we were staying across the street at the Prince George Hotel. We had a late dinner and despite the upscale factor of the restaurant, we were able to eat at the bar in our far-from-upscale, travel clothes. The waitstaff were professional, clean, and courteous. We had the steaks which were broiled and cooked to... More

I visited the Keg with 11 others for an early dinner. The restaurant was already busy and I understand why! The steak was absolutely brilliant. Seasoned beautifully and cooked to perfection. I could also write several paragraphs about the bread that was served when we sat down... Hot from the oven, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside,... More

You can't go wrong with The Keg! The steaks are amazing and the wine list inspiring. Can be expensive at night but the lunch menu is quite affortable.

I had a steak and it was amazing. One of the best steak I ever had. My girlfriend had ribs and chicken and she hated both of them. I did taste them and they were disappointing. The decor was just fine. I would definitely go back but I wouldn't try anything else than a steak.

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.
