I love the Keg whether in Hamilton, Waterdown or Montreal. Great service at all the Kegs. Staff is friendly and the places are clean. I usually don't even open the menu, I have the same steak every time just different sides. Desserts are good too. My favorite is the Mississippi Mudd pie. I like the bar at the Waterdown Keg...

We chose this Keg restaurant because it accepts reservations. We love the Keg for a nice prime rib dinner on special occasions as they are always consistent albeit pricey. This location did not disappoint. We were seated promptly. Our server was friendly and discreet. The big draw for us was the Dungeness crab special. Sooooo good. After a trip to... More

We were craving a steak and where better to get a really good one? Well I had the Teriyaki sirloin 8 oz, with the asiago rice, sautéed mushrooms, red pepper samplings, a ceasar salad and a few green beans. Wonderful array of tastes. The steak was grilled to perfection and the service was very good. I was sufficiently content after... More

We went out for Valentine's Day! The atmosphere was great! The service was really good and the waitress was friendly and attentive even though it was busy. We got the same quality of service that in some places you only get when it's not busy. The food was pretty good! To be honest, I am not a huge steak fan... More

Monday night a day BEFORE Valentines and there's a lineup. Somebody likes this place. And with good reason, Really good food, lots of it, a very customer oriented serving staff and a casual ambiance was a perfect recipe for a well appreciated early Valentines dinner. If you have to wait, there's a bar area and that can take care of... More
