Really enjoyed our night out at the Keg in the Byward Market. We've been to other Keg locations but this one was the best so far. Everything was delicious and the service was really great. Everyone in our group really enjoyed their meals.

I have been going to The Keg in Toronto for many years for when I don't feel like going to any of my usual favourite steak houses such as David Duncan or Ruth's Chris, and in Ottawa for when I do not feel like going to Eighteen or Sterling but The Keg in the market always disappoints me. My main... More

I've seldom had a bad experience at The Keg (my boss likes going there, so I've been to quite a few of them). This one was much the same as usual - good service, good (slightly overpriced) food, but this one has kind of a weird layout - lots of nooks and crannies in which you can get lost and/or... More

We have visited this keg many times. Usually a pretty good meal and great service. This time was different. We were there right at 5pm when it opened. For the first half hour we were one of 15 customers in the restaurant. Service started off very slow and never picked up. Had to ask everyone our glasses were empty. The... More

They do not take reservations so get there by 5:00-5:30 or be prepared to wait 1-1.5 hours for a table on a Saturday night if you are more than 2 people. Food and service outstanding. We (party of 9) were not rushed and were able to take our time and enjoy the evening.

The grilled top sirloin was good, the winelist was fine with choices and service was quick and expedient. The restaurant interior itself is a little run down and feels out of date.

We had an excellent steak dinner in comfortable restaurant. The steaks were perfectly done as ordered and the sides were fresh and exactly as we asked. The server was very knowledgeable and attentive although the restaurant seemed moderately busy. We received our meal a reasonable time after ordering and we saw other patrons taking their time.

I suppose if you want excellent, delicious, scrumptious Prime Rib Roast, this IS the place. My friend was in "restaurant heaven" with her beef dinner. On the other hand, I had a memory of a very good Chicken à la Oscar from a previous visit. Unfortunately, they do not have the item on the menu anymore. They offer you a... More
