“My FAVE restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

BEST prime rib anywhere. A little expensive, VERY bus and VERY loud...but really the best meal around! They really should move and expand, parking is hard to come by on a weekend. Get there early as the wait is always long. Great service and the mojitos are amazing!!!

“Favourite place to eat!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2010

We have been going to the Keg for years and there is a reason we keep going back.
The Filet Mignon has to be the best tasting steak and whatever they marinate it with, it has the best flavour and is so tender!! Mmmmm!!!
I get the Keg Classic Filet Mignon Dinner which includes choice of Salad, (love the house salad, so fresh), choice of Potato, (I have been getting the garlic mashed lately, piping hot and too much but oh sooo good), and completed with mushrooms and the vegetable of the season mixed together.
I opt out of the vegetable and ask for extra of the mushrooms whcih are also marinated and include a variety of types.
I have to say that the service is very consistance as well.
We like to eat in the bar area in a booth as we like the atmosphere there and the service is excellent.
We only had a overcooked steak one time and they were so great about it. Never did they make us feel ackward about it. The server told the manager who came over and agreed that the steak was overcooked.
She offered another meal but I was already fairly full from the hot bread and salad so she gave us the meal for free..
I would rather pay for a great meal instead of getting a free meal but they tried everything and were more than happy to please us!
Thats why we go to the Keg atleast once a month and would overlook any little things because we know how good they treat their customers!

“Excellent prime rib”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2009

Although the Keg is a bit pricey, the prime rib with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and grilled mushrooms and onions is worth it. My prime rib was cooked perfectly, no fat to mention, unlike most cuts of prime rib.
My co-workers NY strip steak was one of the best he had ever had.
My tab, with a double gin/tonic, iced tea and entree was $47 CAD including tip.

“This Keg is the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2009

We've been to Keg restaurants all over Canada and this one IS THE BEST! The staff is always friendly. We've been going to the Hamilton Keg since it was built (on the Mountain). Previous to that we went to the Keg downtown (now closed). Some of the staff from the downtown location made the move to the mountain. It says a lot about a restaurant when you see the same people working there for over 20 years! Food is awesome...lovely and fresh. Good/excellent specials offered. And if your food is not cooked to your liking...they'll make it right. And the best part is that they won't give you attitude if something is not cooked to your liking. Usually a member of management comes out and apologizes! This is a great place to go, alone, with family or friends or even on a first date (I've done all of these). When we want steak, this is the ONLY place we consider in Hamilton.
