“Among Banff's best places to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Having been to several Keg restaurants across Alberta, I find steak lovers can’t really go wrong with this chain. Not the fanciest, or the greatest steakhouses but very affordable and consistently very good food and drinks. Didn’t write any reviews for other Kegs, however I find this location at the Cariboo Lodge stand out from others and deserves a positive review. They have an above average ambiance, nice decor that blends well with Banff, clean cutlery, excellent and genuinely amicable staff, efficient and friendly courteous servers and non-pushy (no phony “Is everything OK?” interruptions) who deserve good tips, and great steaks!

“Cracking steak!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

We have eaten at a fair few Kegs now but I have to say that this location was excellent, far better than the downtown location. We both had the filet mignon albeit hubby had a blue cheese topping and I had the bacon wrapped one. Both cooked to perfection as requested. The caesar salad to start was more than enough for both of us (it came as part of the classic meal) plus the meal comes with bread which is served warm. The tourist resorts also charge more for their meals eg. Calgary was around $3/$4 cheaper per item and the wine a couple of dollars less per glass of wine. All in all, a fab meal once again.

“Good holy moly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

After reading the reviews we were unsure if we should head here for something to eat but as it's right next door to our Hotel we thought, why not. We were not disappointed.

We ordered Prime Rib sandwich and a steak sandwich and my boyfriend who considers himself something of an expert on anything meat related, being a butchers son was moved to tears by his meal and I came close. The portion size was perfect, enough to fill you right up but not so large you ended wasting half of it or felt uncomfortable trying to move afterwards.

Normally I struggle to eat a meal when out in a restaurant but before I knew it my plate was cleared and I was left sighing happily.

The service was good, the waiter was friendly and informative and fairly attentive.

Inside it was quiet and relaxed, the decor was perfectly appropriate and really set the tone of the room.

I really can't recommend this highly enough. The Kiwi Tini was delicious and refreshing and if you feel the need for desert the fudge brownie is beautiful too.

Price wise, I found it expensive ( I'm quite reluctant to spend too much money on eating out) but absolutely worth every penny.
