The food is excellent when we have gone. Sometimes the service is a bit slow due to how busy it is in the evenings, and the atmosphere is extremely loud and boisterous. But if you can overlook these things, the food is delicious!

Best fried oysters anywhere, nice and big, not greasy. The blackened catfish lunch special was pretty good too, comes with three vegies5.

Absolutely delicious seafood. I had the Boiled red shrimp I think they were called last time. They were huge and perfect. I've had their broiled oysters and broiled fish. My husband eats the fried dishes and says all have been delicious. If we want seafood in Murray, this is where we go. If you are concerned about a loud, party... More

First off you need to realize that this is truly a bar that serves food not a restaurant... that being said the food is the best part. they often have live music which is subpar..unnless you're good and drunk (which many people always are) I personally would not recommend going unless you plan on drinking and don't mind a lot...

One of my favorite places to eat in Murray is The Keg. It's always good, from an appetizer to the Cajun sampler (that I frequently get) to the bacon-wrapped pork chop. Most recently, my wife and I enjoyed dinner there. I had the Cajun sampler again, which has boiled butterfly shrimp, crawdads, gumbo, jambalaya, red beans and rice, and Andouille... More

The Keg markets itself as a restaurant, and while it does have some very delicious seafood and Cajun style options, everyone around here recognizes it more as a bar. Which is okay! Because its probably the best bar in Murray (at least in my opinion)
