Pleasant Suprise in finding decent Cajun food in Western Kentucky

The Cajun items we tried were not quite as good as down home in south Louisiana but they were very, very close. This is the second time we sampled various Cajun offerings and the second time they were wonderful. I would anticipate that the next time we will be pleased as well. Ambiance is very... read more

My co workers and I went to this local place after almost everyone in the area mentioned how great it was. Man, they were not kidding. We ordered fired oysters for an appetizer and they were to die for. I ordered the Smoky Trio, which is brisket, ribs, and pulled pork. The portions were huge along with the side of... More

This place reminded me of a typical roadhouse kinda BBQ/Burgers + Beer kinda place. You can smoke in there at night, which I thought was weird. But, you can't beat $7 for burger and fries at a sit down restaurant! Tasty stuff too!

I don't know if this entire place allows smoking, but we weren't given an choice of smoking or no-smoking when we were seated. We were led to a high top table. I ate in smoking restaurants for years when I was a kid, but I haven't lived anywhere in 15 years where they've allowed smoking. It was weird. I didn't... More

Long time area restaurant history. Two locations now, original in Fulton, Ky and newer one in Murray, Ky. I still like the original in Fulton best. Their white beans to go with your Barbeque or hamburger etc. are a must have. Servers friendly and prompt.

If you are a college kid or an adult that likes a live band and loud music this place is great. Pool and darts? They have that also. You have to try the bacon wrapped shrimp! Amazing! The bands are usually pretty good too! Lunch time is a great time to go if you like a nice relaxing atmosphere. They... More

After recommended by locals, bought delicious steaks and bacon from meat market located in back. Enjoyed yummy appetizer of fried green tomatoes while waiting for our tastey takeout orders. The two rooms of tables were full of happy relaxed diners with more waiting.The waitresses were great. We plan to return and enjoy more selections from the Keg.

Been going to The Keg since it opened. Always had good food and never had anything I did not like. The Cajun food is awesome and they have a good selection of beer and drinks.

The restaurant offers the best Cajun and steak menu in the area. The seafood is fresh and is prepared very well. When in the area this is a definite destination.
