“Happy Day to me!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Relieved we had made reservations , we were quickly seated at our table. The wait for walk ins was over an hour. The bar area was vibrant and. Full. It was Not the best table as we were squeezed into a table that had been added to the room. We waited a long time for our server to take our drink order so we immediately placed our appetizer order of escargot . The server was quick to bring our drinks and appetizers and was eager to take our dinner order. Steak and lobster was popular for the men and salmon for the ladies. Unfortunately one of the dinners did not show and the restaurant had to comp that order . Free dessert was also given for birthday wishes.

“What a drop.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

It had been a few years since I've been to The Keg, but I remember a very good prime rib.
Not so this time, they pump the meat with solutions to make it tender, and not sure if they know what medium cooked is or if they add a pink dye to make it look medium. The horseradish is a real nose clearer. Service was sufficient, but the waitress displayed a reluctance to serve tables in the bar area. The location is the only redeeming factor and it becomes a meat market for the after work crowd.
Not an unpleasant experience, but not worth going back for food.

“frequently visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

can always get a consistent meal here, service is always great as well. Need a reservation though especially on weekends. I like to eat earlier as the later you eat the noisier it will be. We were there on Saturday(group of 13) and by 8pm we were shouting to talk to eachother. Bar area is also large but noisier than the dining room. Everyones meals were great!

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Family tradition when family comes to town to go to the Keg, Howard Ave. In Aug/13, it was closed for reno's. We made reservations for R'side Dr. Arrived & were seated at a huge table...there were 5 of us ! Asked to be moved to a smaller table, that was done, despite a look of annoyance from the hostess. Received menu's, ordered bottles of wine, and Lobster sampler as an appetizer. Personally think it was undercooked, very watery. Ordered salads, and meal.
Main course delivered before salad plates cleared away, plates just put on table. This experience was unsettling.......felt like we were being rushed. Several plates dropped, very noisy, someone yelling from the kitchen during our dinner ! Sure hope Howard Ave opens soon !!!

“A Fine Example of the Keg Chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We ate at the Keg while staying in Windsor. It was a short walk from our hotel, and for a Saturday night, we only had to wait 10 minutes for a seat. Service was very friendly, from the bartender to the waitstaff.

We had the Bacon Wrapped Scallops and both had the Keg Classic Dinners. All was very good. The steak was cooked prefect, as were the potatoes and vegetables. With the appetizer, bread and meal, it was almost too much food.

The pricing was very reasonable for the quality and amount of food that we had. We've had mixed results with Keg Restaurants throughout Canada, but the Windsor location is definately one of the better locations we're visited,
