Tried something different. The bluegill dinner with all the sides is truly for the hungry. A mound of fish, onion rings, fries, hush puppies, beans and coleslaw. Couldn't eat it all. The fish was good but wasn't the best. It's not breaded to my liking, which is for the traditional corn meal breading. Though the meal was good, I'll not... More

Brought my Mom here to try someplace new. We shared the grilled oysters (with the garlic/parmesan topping) which were good, but pretty salty. The oysters were very small inside compared to their large shells. I've eaten oysters many times, so am guessing it is the variety, but still kinda disappointing. We both ordered the blackened beef tips with onions and... More

Awesome cajon, BBQ, and daily plate lunches. Always friendly great servers and large portions. It is an old fashion roadhouse atomsphere.

Went for lunch. Not crowded and not a lot going on in the place. Ordered my beer and place my food order...telling the waitress I would likely be ordering more. There was no follow up to see if I needed anything. I finished my app and beer. Still no follow up and no one around. I refilled my own beer... More

I have been eating at the keg for a decade. Most of the time it is the best bbq in town but every once in a while you will get the end of the shoulder which means a lot of fat which is disappointing. The owner has expanded the menu adding steaks and Cajun food and all of that is... More

While it is certainly not a fancy restaurant, the food is as good as it gets. Have never had a bad meal here. The service is really good. It is a little noisy but that is part of the atmosphere. It is a fun place. The only downside is smoking is still allowed in bar which can spill over into... More

Okay, it's 20-30 miles from your camper, hotel, boat, but you MUST get to The Keg in Murray, KY. The menu is very extensive and offers everyone something special. SO many wonderful choices to include the Alligator Tail or Ribs, seafood, steaks, burgers, pasta, salads, etc. First class food and professional customer service. ALL locals love this restaurant. You will,... More

The food here is great, I wouldn't guess it when walking in. Make sure you don't wear clothes you love, you'll leave smelling like smoke. There are live bands here often, which is always a good time.

If you don't mind a busy place with smoking and yelling on the busy nights, then you'll love this place. I wouldn't have minded it so much but several were drinking and smoking and bumping into our table. I should have gone earlier in the day. Not family at those times. But, the food is very good so don't hestitate,... More
