My husband and I dined here after a recommendation from the place we were staying the night at. We were not expecting a finer dining atmosphere, but a pub style atmosphere. The food was delicious. We both ordered steaks and were grilled to our specifications. Although, mine had a little too much pepper on it. We had no problems with the service. Our server made sure we had everything we needed in a timely fashion. I did think that the prices were a little higher than you expect when your given the impression that The Keg is more pub than fine dining.

The Keg is reliably very good at every location. This Keg excelled several areas:
1. The reservation clerk was very efficient & pleasant. My request for a special table was both accommodated and available on time;
2. Our waiter was excellent in every respect. He was knowledgeable about the menu, courteous & engaging, checked on us often but was not pushy. He also accommodated questions and requests.
3. Our shrimp cocktails were huge, crisply chilled & fresh. Our martinis were also superb and unlike many restaurants, they had cocktail onions for y gin martini (a Gibson). Both were worthy of a 5 star restaurants.

The downside was all of us choosing the special. It was a strip loin steak & crab meat smothered in creamy blue cheese sauce. The sauce totally overwhelmed the crab, and both masked the taste of the steak (unlike a real blue cheese topping on a steak). It was also difficult to find a good wine to accompany it. Our three steaks were grilled to order, two were the usual top Keg quality, but mine was chewy & sinewy. It was my first mediocre steak in decades of dining at the Keg chain.

There are rarely unpleasant surprises when you visit a Keg restaurant...and no exception here. The service, and food were all excellent. The restaurant is an easy walk from downtown and as usual provides excellent value.

This is one of those classic little places in Kingston that you come across and decide to try, they are all hit and miss and you sometimes don't know what it will be like from day to day. We had a nice group of four in here and we loved it this particular night

The food standard was fine here and consistent with the other Kegs I have been too, but while the service was ok, it seemed to lack that little bit more personal and polished touch that I have come to know at other Kegs. There seemed to be a lot of college kids working here, so the polished part may not be there yet.
