“Place to go for steak”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Went for "farewell dinner" with our polar bear tour group. We we 16 people, which makes for a long table. I think most of us ordered steaks, with one or two fish. Everyone was satisfied and service was great. No orders were mixed up and all of us got steaks booked the way we wanted them! Our guide suggested a dessert that was a multi layer cake with lots of frosting. We ordered one for every 4people and could not finish them!

“They can't handle a crowd on a Saturday night...”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Never been to the Keg before but my 37 year old daughter wanted to go there for her birthday.We had a reservation for 8 people, but had to wait an extra half an hour to get seated. Very irritating when your used to better. Off to a bad start. Went for a 2 hour dinner but ended up having a 3 hour dinner which means you and your company end up buying a lot of extra drinks. I had asked for a gin with the tonic on the side, and requested Bombay Sapphire but ended up getting some type of terrible gin. You can't mistake the taste of Bombay Sapphire Gin. So I only had one drink when I would normally have two. That was two thinks gone wrong already. We ordered and waited and waited for our meal and when it finally arrived it was luke warm, like it had been sitting for 20 minutes waiting to be served (they have servers there). We complained to the waiter but he was quite indifferent about the whole think. He never came back again to see how we were making out or anything and when he finally did clear the table he removed all the napkins so when we had dessert we had "NO NAPKINS". This guy was clueless .The place is old and needs to be modernized with some new lighting. Very dingy in there.The furnishings are old and the chairs are very uncomfortable. Would I go back there again...probably not. We don’t got out for dinner very often but when we do go, we like to go to great eating place and this is not one of them.

“Dinner at The Keg, Winnipeg”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We have just arrived in Winnipeg in preparation for our Polar Bear trip to Churchill. After 20 hours in the air from Australia we were looking for something really nice to eat and get us into the way of things.

We went across the road to find the Keg. We were told that there would be a 20 minute wait. So decided to have a drink in the bar and before we got our drinks the table was ready. Speedy table not slow drinks.

Shown to the table and Jason looked after us.

We had a lovely steak and salad. Wonderfully crab cakes all washed down with a great. Tootle of wine. Jason was very pleasant and answered all our questions with good humor. All in all a great experience.

The restaurant was well decorated with a lovely ambience. Price was what we would expect to pay for that level of service and quality. A little less than $90 for the 2 of us. All in all a very pleasant dinner

“Great food, so so experience.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

I had a great dinner with friends. My fillet was cooked beautifully and the sides nicely finished the dish. Unfortunately my pregnant friend's steak was way under cooked, which service promptly corrected. The location is great except for the usual saga of parking downtown. However, there are several adjacent lots.

The only drawback is their reservation policy. They wouldn't take a reservation on a Saturday night. Our party of 8 waited just over an hour and a half. The lousy thing is I'm not familiar enough with the restaurant to know just how busy their Saturday nights are. I would have skipped the restaurant entirely for a place that would take reservations. The other downside for us was that the lounge was jammed so we waited a considerable time to be able to just have a drink. Even at that, our party sat in two separate areas in the lounge due to the seating.

Eventually when we did get our table, service was very good.

I liked the place but I definitely wouldn't return with a group of people again.

“Easy atmosphere and attentive service”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

In Winnipeg on the way to see Polar bears. Found The Keg and enjoyed it greatly. Was told there would be a 25 min wait so headed to the bar. Ordered a glass of wine each and before they were poured our table was ready. Service was excellent thanks to Jason. Food was well presented and very tasty, price was very reasonable. Would return anytime.
