Had the surf and turf. The 4 of us enjoyed it all. Beers wine and good appetizers. Always feel full after leaving unlike a lot of fancier places

We were a group of 9 and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate us on every level. We were all served piping hot dishes at the same time and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and evening. Thanks!

Having eaten in The Keg in many other locations (Ottawa being the best so far), this was a poor example. Not the best location on the main Bayfield Street. The service was warm, just like the food. Steak was ok but not well cooked, a little tough for most of our party and seafood tasted frozen rather than fresh

There was a time when I really enjoyed going to the Keg. I find now that I am a little older, there is just something lacking there now. My wife and I had dinner there the other night. I had the Chicken Creole (yes I know it is a steak house!), but I had it in the past and enjoyed... More

The last few times I have frequented Keg Restaurants in Canada (London, ON, Shilo, AB, etc), I have been disappointed in the quality and cooking of their steaks. The Keg in Barrie however changed that. The steak was so good the first time my work colleagues and I went there that we had to go again during our stay in... More

I always return to The Keg of the best steak. The Keg the best steak place in Barrie and outshines many in Canada and US. Nothing more need be said.

Restaurant is nice and staff give friendly welcome. Very busy most times but that is expected. A bit noisy with music and all talking but again expected. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. Food was served hot. What was surprising was that a napkin had fallen on the floor and many staff members just stepped over it and not one... More

Went to The Keg in Crowfoot. Always lined up so that's a good sign food is good. We chose to sit in the lounge/bar so that we did not have to wait. Full menu served there. I had the sweet and spicy grilled salmon and it was delicious. My husband had the Steak Oscar and it was cooked to his... More
