Two couples visited 9/22 for dinner. Meals included salmon & pistachio, prime rib & top sirloin steak. There were no complaints about the server or any of the appys, entrees or sides being over/under cooked. Everything was very, very good.

I visited twice this month and both times had the lobster tacos. They were delicious! Steak is consistent as always, perfectly cooked. Service is always great.

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday tonight and, as always, it was a great experience. Had our favourite server of any restaurant- Mary Rose- again and she was her fabulous self. My lobster tail was absolutely delicious and I love the Malbec they carry. Thanks for making us feel special on our kid-free date night! Xo

Fantastic! You can never go wrong with the Keg Steakhouse, it's a fail safe for good food and good times. Had a great steak and a super huge shrimp cocktail to start. You gotta eat here!

My husband and i decided to try the Keg in Niagara falls. It had been quite awhile since we had been to a Keg. Wow the food and service was awesome. We had bacon wrapped scallops that were delicious! Our entrees of steak and lobster were delicious as well....cooked to perfection.
