I was in Toronto on business and ate at the Keg on two separate nights. The steaks were great as was the seafood. Twice-baked potato was excellent, if not as good as my wife's. ;-) The service was also great. It can be a little noisy so don't go expecting a quiet, romantic dinner.

The service justified price, and the food was good. Nice place to visit once in a while and know exactly what to expect. Predictable, and a little boring.

What a blast I had at the keg on York the other night. Not your typical boring steakhouse, that's for sure. I sat at the bar and was entertained by the beautiful, big eyed, blonde bartender all evening. I can definitely see why she has so many returning regulars. Service was great and I thoroughly enjoyed the food I ordered... More

We went there twice while in Toronto once on a week night to meet business associates. It was quite packed, very loud & busy yet service good & accommodated the addition of 2 people to our reservation. We had drinks, nice wine list, good beer selection and appetizers, calamari, garlic cheese toast & chicken dip all good yet not exceptional.... More

I've been here a few times, lunch, dinner and drinks only. For all purpose it fits. I wouldn't say that its the best food and the most imaginative menu, but its of a high quality and good portions.

I like steak and I love steak houses! This one is reminiscent of others in the upscale market. Here, however, I strongly recommend reservations. This time I made them 2 weeks in advance and I am certainly glad I did. Arriving at 5:30 in the afternoon on a Thursday, the place was packed like sardines in a can. Service was... More

We mentioned to her that we were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary ,( when she asked if we were there for a special occasion) and she even had the manager to come out to congratulate us. The quality of the food was very good and... More

This was our first time to this particular Keg location. Our waitress Laura was fantastic! The food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect! The Keg never disappoints.
