We arrived to a very busy Keg at 6:30, during the Victoria Day weekend. We were told about 45 minutes for a table, but we really only waited 20. The bartenders were great, and when our buzzer went off, there was no need to return to the hostess station. She found us in the bar, and prepared with menus, led us to our table.

Our waitress was wonderful, and did an excellent job of describing the menu, and answering out questions. Our steaks were flavorful, nicely charred on the outside, and perfectly cooked on the inside. I have had steaks that were a little more tender (at higher end steakhouses, like Ruth Chris' and Schula's) but all in all, these were outstanding!

My family and I have been celebrating birthdays and anniversaries at the Upper James “The Keg” in Hamilton for years. We have never had a bad meal or poor service at this establishment. Waiting times can be a little long at peak times but that is because of its reputation.

Nice place with good chain service. Food was perfectly fine but don't expect any 'wow'. Not shy with pricing, but the proteins aren't cheap to be fair

I love their food and friendly service. At times it can be quite loud from patrons in the bar. I find it similar to Kelsey's.
