Good place for a steak

I've eaten here two times. Both were late-night and this was one of the few restaurants still open. This is the place to go for a steak. I've also ordered fish here and was quite pleased. The staff is attentive and the drink selection is good.

A Chain. Been there a few times. Service kinda OK. Expensive, but not that good for the price. Seem like some attitudes with staff each time I have been there.

My wife and I have never been disappointed when we go to the Keg. The service is always flawless. And the food...we'll if you like steak then there is no other choice. Even if you prefer well done it's always moist and juicy (my wife's preference).

We usually go to The Keg a few times per year but hadn't been in over 6 months. We arrived around 5:30 and were told that we now need reservations for dinner in the main dining room which is a good change going forward as the wait in the lounge got a bit long on previous visits. Our only option... More

My husband and I have been visiting the keg regularly for the last 8 years. It is our go-to spot for a good meal, and good service. We ALWAYS call ahead of time to request reservations, only to be advised that they do not take reservations until after 8pm. Frustrating when you wish to make anniversary or special event reservations... More

My husband and I usually enjoy dining at Keg restaurants. Our favourite is in The Embassy Suites in Niagara Falls. Although we had a particularly good, friendly and attentive waiter, we didn't enjoy the food very much. The seafood chicken I had was dry and the Bernaise sauce didn't help much because it was not very tasty. My husband didn't... More

We had a gift card given to us from last Christmas, which we hadn't had time to use yet. So, we had a spare evening, so we left the kids at home(oldest is 13, youngest is 9) and headed out. We really enjoy the sort of intimate ambiance of the Keg. The lighting is just the right mix. Our server... More
