“Price > Quality of food :( ooooohhhh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I thought that this restaurant was a slightly higher end restaurant and didn't realize it was family style :( Not good for a romantic dinner for two. I got the "Top Sirloin" and Lobster with Garlic Mashies :( If top sirloins is chewy and stringy than I got it!! :D... The lobster was too salty :( so it was too salty with the butter :(... the mashies had too much pepper... :( I also ordered the creme brulee which was okay... it was too sweet and with the sugar caramelized on top made it ohhhhh too sweet :(

Liked... they fed us fairly quickly...
Disliked... just about everything else... Or else I am hard on them as I was expecting a nicer restaurant... :(

“Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Went to the Keg for dinner with friends. The food is always amazing at the Keg. The waiter was very good. The atmosphere is good. A little loud, but good. The steak is out of this world!

“Celebration dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We've always enjoyed The Keg for a nice meal out, meal met expectations but didn't dazzle. The restaurant was very crowded that night; tables were very close and it was extremely noisy, so that took away from the experience.

“Don't Bother”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Overpriced. Underwhelming steak. Don't bother. Go support your local restaurants that can do a steak better, not this overpriced, over advertised sham. I don't know why people go here.
