“Pricey but good steaks”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Location is close to the Courtyard Marriott. I sat outside and enjoyed a steak and beer on a cool evening. The Keg is a chain famous for their Prime Rib, but I'm a steak man and they will cook a good steak.

If you are looking for steak in Ottawa, this would the place.

Beer selection was so so, but they did have some local beers available.

“Good steak house!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Great location at the by-ward Market in Ottawa. The food is always good and tasty.

The staff here are the best!!! Everyone make you feel welcome and important. If you are alone they offer you magazine and newspaper.

The steaks are always good, come as you asked and well priced. Try the small desserts if you do not want to much sweet.

“Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We love the Keg at the by-ward Market in Ottawa. The food is always to our liking delicious and hot! The staff here are the best!!! Everyone from the manager to the waitstaff make you feel welcome and important. It was our 32nd anniversary and they gave us a complimentary drink from the bar and even shelled my lobster right at the table, many restaurants charge for this service. We travel a lot and so have to eat out, we can always count on the Keg for consistency across the board, with the food and the way they train the staff to go above and beyond.
