I will be glad when they move to the new site. I have always found the noise level awful there, it can be very hard to hear.
Food always great.

Although the meal was outstanding, the price can only have us as a couple afford it very very few times. Only on VERY special occasions when we have saved up for. However glad we went and it will be remembered for a long long time. Thank you

Our seat was along the direct walkway to the kitchen.........continual traffic with wait-staff, managers and the general public on their way to the kitchen and/or seats. Hard to have a conversation, as many of them were talking. Also across from a table of 8- we were a table of 2, wanting to enjoy some good conversation together.
Don't need the background music noise on top of it all.

The ribs had very little meat on them. Mostly bone. The prime rib was tough and difficult to cut. Expected a lot more given the high prices.

It's hard to find much fault with The Keg. They have the highish-end steakhouse thing down pat, and you're probably never going to have a bad meal or a bad experience in one. My prime rib was very good (not outstanding, but very good) and the garlic mashed are a favourite. My green beans, however, were slightly cold. My wife's sirloin Oscar WAS outstanding, as was the escargot and brioche appetizer.

Our service was solid, although I think when you tell the waiter neither of you are drinkers, they lose a bit of interest. The table behind us must have been four food critics because they alternately asked questions and complained about just about everything in front of them. It's The Keg, idiots - there's nothing on the menu or on the wine list that needs a 10-minute explanation from your server. The guy was patient and pleasant, but it meant our waiting a little extra while he dealt with them.

Four out of five stars and no hesitation in going back or recommending.

Our waiter was great! She was super attentive and accommodating. One of our party has some severe food allergies, so she brought out the chef (Brad?) to speak to him and ensure that none of his food was contaminated with an allergen. She was nice, quick, and had great suggestions for when a menu item was unavailable.

we had the choice of 4pm or 9pm which was a little late.

Lovely that our server came out with ice cream cake.... but I was never asked for a dessert choice - really hoping for a white chocolate creme caramel might of been on the menu, maybe next time!

Felt a bit rushed after cake was served ......
Looking forward to hopefully getting to the new location when it opens!!!

We live outside the Barrie area so we always have to have a driver......The Keg
should consider having a shuttle bus!

Would consider visiting over the Xmas hols but know its crazy busy and don't like waiting - hopefully the new place will address this.

Thank you

Were looking forward to celebrating husbands 70th and picked the Keg as usual to celebrate a special day. Were disappointed. It was so cold! Had to wear my coat the entire meal and noticed other guests did too. Food went cold fast. The mushroom caps were tiny and overloaded with a pile of clumpy cream cheese and I we think crab. Got 5 croutons on my caesar salad, with no bacon - just a bowl of romaine.The steaks were OK. Dont think the 18 oz was even 12 oz including bone. Baked potatoes were overcooked. Disappointed and I think we will be going to a different restaurant from now on for our special date nights. What happened?? You have gone downhill sadly.

Usually love love the keg...but...on saturday it was loud..like loud where we couldnt hear one another...the table was dirty...and we were out for our anniversary and ...well, nothing special was done. It honestly felt like we paid a fortune for a night at a sports bar. The food was good as always but it us way overpriced to be honest. For the first time I was disappointed with the keg as our first choice. We have been going to the Keg for years now as it was always just that bit nicer and worth a litte more than the norm. Sad to say my feelings have changed a bit.

Our server (Claire) was excellent. My wife had the filet mignon that was a bit dry and she had requested medium rare, but we don’t like sending food back. My prime rib had a lot of fat in the middle and was probably a third of the cut, but again it’s the luck of the cut I guess. The meat issues aside it was a good Keg dinner.

Our meal was excellent with the exception of one steak that wasn't medium as requested. Chef came out with medium steak & a new baked potato. Thanked guest for bringing this to their attention. Server was very nice, prompt, efficient and sociable. We were seated in a booth that was separated from the rest of the restaurant by walls. I thought this would be great as I wear hearing aids. I thought the background noise level would be lower but surprisingly it was noisier. It was a very enjoyable evening.

Came here for our anniversary as we usually do. Do not want to be disappointed so we usually come to the Keg. Recognized for our anniversary as soon as we checked in (noted on reservation). Seated immediately and drinks order came shortly after. Food came in a timely manner and we did not feel rushed at all. Food was served hot and delicious. Portions were excellent. Opted for after dinner specialty coffees and dessert as well and again, all was excellent. We were even comped one of our after dinner drinks - a very pleasant surprise. A great way to spend our anniversary.

Arrived 10 minutes early to find a lot of people waiting for a table. -Was ready to cop an attitude, but we were seated at our prescribed reservation time.

With every table in use, the noise level was somewhat elevated but we did not find it objectionable.

Service was nothing less than outstanding.

Food (escargots, prime rib and steak)was very good but not memorable..

What made the evening was the outstanding service .

My wife and I really enjoyed our experience at the Keg in Barrie. Our waitress (Veronica) was terrific. She as attentive without hovering and had an awesome smile The baked Brie was outstanding, the steaks done just right and the Billy Miner Pie never disappoints. I really enjoy Creemore Springs Lager so I was thrilled that it was available. Here's hoping your new location in Barrie meets/exceeds our expectations. Cheers!
