Kegs are pretty much the same in every city. I last visited one in Toronto and the experience was pretty much the same as the Ottawa edition. The menus are the same. The service is the same. The wine list is the same. Aps are good - nice crab cakes and the other are predictable. Mains - well this is... More

Have been to the Keg several times over the Years, never been disappointed.The atmosphere is warm and inviting -- the service exemplary, bravo Dorothy. The Keg is not an inexpensive night out but the food quality is pretty consistent, which makes it worth it for me.

Went here for a date night and we both loved our steak. It was perfectly cooked and the sides complimented it perfectly. The drink menu was nice, so we had a few drinks and they were also very tastey. The crab cakes we had were the 2nd best we ever had (after some of the ones we've had in Baltimore),... More

Some friends picked The Keg for their thank you dinner for doing us a favour. It wouldn`t have been our choice; we do not usually go to typical steak houses because the meat portions are so large and the food is overpriced. Having said that, we each enjoyed a Baseball Top Sirloin (recommended by another friend). One of our party... More

I was in Ottawa for about a week on business and the best service I received all week was at The Keg....by far. Our server was Alex and he has a perfect personality to be table-side. Everyone's food was delicious and the drink menu is great. Would definitely recommend a stop here!

We went to the keg in downtown Ottawa to have a birrhday celebration. The appitizers were very tasty and plated very well. Calamari, mushrooms neptune, and ahi tuna to start with, then steaks all around. All in all a very pleasant evening.

Not first time here I am still surprised in a very positive way with the quality of the stakes and selection of the wines. For really tender melting meat I would recommend Fillet stake (take the bigger one and try it rare or medium rare). More traditional is NY stake, I like it rare... Enjoy!

Not to be a bias, however not sure if these guys are the top place for steak. That been said if you are in town and craving steak, it's a good option. The server and manager saved the day b/c the cook overcooked the steak. Try to get there before 9PM if you want to have a nice meal before... More

This has been our favorite steakhouse for a while. Atmosphere is great, food is excellent and staff is great. I highly recommend it if your looking for a great place to eat downtown. You're guaranteed to leave with a full stomach!
