2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

poor service and the quality of the food was also poor. Medium rare were well done, Some side dish portions were so big that half went back

“could do with an update”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

even though the food at the Keg franchises is always good its the atmospere that lacks at this location. The dark and dreary decor makes the meal less enjoyable than other locations

“Good steak, but far too pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Good steak, but it's the same old, same old....Why don't you offer more variety in your "specials" Also, your prices are far too high

“Best Steak House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

The Keg never disappoints. We went right before the Christmas holidays and it was a little busy, but we were able to get drinks before we were seated. When we got to the table the waitress explained all of the specials and was able to answer any questions we had. My favourite steak is the pecan and goat cheese sirloin steak - delicious!!

And if you are going for a special occasion they offer a free dessert!

“My FAVE restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

BEST prime rib anywhere. A little expensive, VERY bus and VERY loud...but really the best meal around! They really should move and expand, parking is hard to come by on a weekend. Get there early as the wait is always long. Great service and the mojitos are amazing!!!
