This Keg was closed for a long time to do major renovations. We used to frequent here because of the food and atmosphere.We were anticipating our return to the newly renovated restaurant after the re-opening. We waited for a special occasion to go. We were greeted and escorted to our table. My first impression was not very good as everything seems to be closed in with floor to ceiling walls and small pods of four or six booths. They sat us at a table for two which are too small and the three bigger booths were empty. There is no where to put your coats,purses,bags etc. This was a Saturday evening and the place was virtually empty that we could see. We asked the waitress about this and she said that it was busy after opening but it has gotten slow. I see why. There is nothing to see or look at. Three pictures on the wall that were the same trees but different colors. Very boring. I preferred the old keg with an open concept and the historical pictures. I enjoy a good steak once in a while and don't mind paying $30.00 for it. The old Keg used to satisfy my craving with their large tender, juicy, Alberta prime New York. My steak was cooked correctly but it was anything but tender. Very chewy. I could not finish it as my jaws were sore. It came with my choice of side. I got french fries that tasted like the frozen ones from the super market. I did not eat the three little pieces of vegetable on my plate.
I think the person who designed this place should give a refund to the poor owner. I heard the reno was in the millions. What a shame. BORING and POOR STEAK. We will definitely not be returning.
