The Keg Steakhouse + Bar - St. Johns
Excellent food and our waiter was very polite and knowledgeable.
My only complaint is that the food came out way too fast. We really didn’t get to enjoy our time out. Salad came then bread and scallops all at once. I’d say we had 5 minutes before our main meals came. We didn’t even get to enjoy a second drink because we couldn’t eat fast enough. I would have rather Enjoyed a bit more time to enjoy another drink between settings. Felt very rushed. Too much food too fast and no time to just relax. I know that may be a strange complaint but for us a night at the keg should last longer than an hour.
This is a lovely Keg! I have never been into a 2-storey Keg before. I really appreciated the elevator as my parents were travelling with us and the stairs would have been prohibitive. However, the music was way too loud for reasonable conversation, especially with all the hard surfaces so sound bounces even more. And taking into consideration that there are many of us that don't eat 10 oz of meat, when is the Keg going to introduce smaller portions? I love prime rib and that's one of the reasons I love coming to the Keg, but I only get through maybe 5-6 oz and the rest is left on my plate. What a waste and what a terrible statement about our society that we tolerate/accept this.
Great experience. Food was wonderful as always. Consistent great service and quality you come to expect when dining here.
Music was too loud! We couldn’t have a conversation.
Celebrated my daughter’s birthday with a lovely meal at The Keg. The food was delicious and the server was attentive and efficient. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Server showed up within minutes to take drink orders. Appetizers and entrees soon followed. Complimentary dessert for the birthday girl was provided. Our family had a great experience!
Food and service were great. We had requested a window seat (as this was an anniversary and birthday celebration). Instead we were seated at the first table at the top of the staircase. There was a great deal of traffic and noise, which made it difficult to carry on a conversation.
We always love The Keg but this time was super disappointing—the music was awful (not at all relaxing—was not appealing to the masses for sure) and to make matters worse, it was super loud. The acoustics are so bad there that the music sounded distorted where we were sitting...it really affected the enjoyment of the evening. As well, the service was just ok. Food amazing as always but we left as soon as we ate because the weird distorted music made us both crooked!
We are frequent visitors to The Keg, however this was the worst service we have experienced in many years of coming for date nights. The waitress was missing for most of the night and when we needed something we had to ask another waitress or waiter which made us feel like we were being bothersome. We left feeling disappointed, although the food was excellent as usual.
service was slow , food was average and prices high
Food was good. Arrived early for my reservation and was made to wait. Plenty of free tables. Service was exactly that, delivery of food to table . Prompt and efficient no pleasantries . I did tip but I did pay for what I received , delivery of food to table . Service could use improvement
Perfect service, great atmosphere, high quality food and drink. Great hospitality. Will be returning.
All around perfect experience!
Great dining experience ! Exceptional server who really made it the great experience it was! Really enjoyed it!
Would not take our open table check and steak was tough and rare which was not what I ordered.
Plus is was late and my party had theirs started almost ten minutes before my not so warm meal and rare steak showed up
Another great Keg meal. Service was excellent. Food was as usual.. Fantastic.
Our experience at the keg was awesome, very friendly staff and excellent customer service service, would recommend the keg to everyone...
Food was great. We had two whole 2 lb. lobsters and they were both very good. I would recommend that the keg purchase the long pick style fork so that all pieces of lobster be easier to get while eating this succulent treat. The view of the harbor was great but at times the noise level within the restaurant was a bit high. Overall, our experience was very good.
Great food & wine. Best views of the habour!
Highly recommend it !!
We book reservations for 6pm for 6ppl, no issues being seated. Table was ready, we sat inside.
We ordered fairly quickly, first round of drinks were brought out. And then the waiter comes back to say they kitchen ran out of one of the meals that one of us had order. And the bar drinks took longer and longer to be brought out. Then they had run out of drunken cherries for the sangria. We were drinking French Martini’s and they ran out of chambor
Food was good but with the slow bar and with the restaurant running out of mix and food it wasn’t up to the keg standard and price.
Always excellent. Never disappointed. Our server was outstanding.
Our server Peter was excellent
Food was delicious
Service was really good, as usual. They had trouble getting the steak grilled correctly - did not match the descriptions of cook level. Others around us had same issues. Taste though was good.
Everything was great, but my service rating was low, as one of our group ordered mussels and they sent out shrimp -- she had already had shrimp as an appetizer.
They left the shrimp for someone to eat and then brought out her order....and it was mussels again !!
My friend did get her meal complimentary .... and our server was amazing !!
Disappointed with my meal. Striploin steak had too much fat Very bad cut of meat should never have been served . My girlfriend had same steak much better quality. In addition I had two thumb size pieces of over cooked red pepper and five green beans. Terrible value for price. Disappointed
It was a wonderful experience. The service was fabulous. Would have liked a little more choice on the menu
They were short staffed due to several bus loads of tourists. Not my usual experience at the Keg and I have been to many. Felt sorry for the staff. Food was usual great quality
We were seated for 45 minutes and no one even asked us if we wanted a drink. We flagged down a server and advised them of this. We were advised that because it was not very busy they let servers leave early and our table was one of the servers they let leave. A manager spoke with us and we were looked after immediately. The food was delicious and the server that finally waited on us was excellent. Just an oversight which was rectified.
Beautiful restaurant, excellent service but in my last few trips to this restaurant my steak was over cooked. Disappointing given how much you pay.
I would recommend The Keg but the steak came out almost raw which wasn't close to the type of steak that was wanted, mushrooms comes with the classic keg menu and didn't get that, had to ask for it and was for my boyfriend's birthday and he came out with cake which wasn't requested and I got charged for it something I didn't ask for. Server was super pleasant the whole time but back kitchen may need a little tune up .
THe steak was not of the quality I would have expected ! The service was excellent and the complimentary dessert was appreciated!
Great location! Try to get on patio it’s beautiful and ambiance is great!
As usually you out do yourself great service and great food
Overall great experience and always great service and food
Booked a reservation for my birthday but was sat at a table that almost seemed like we were squeezed isn last minute. they had to put chairs on the end of the booth and it was very squaty for our group. Bigger table next to us with less people. didn't make much sense. server was great but poor man had been sat way too many tables, you could tell he was stressed and couldn't get back to check on anyone, including our table. Steaks were prepared wrong, so even though they were cut when we realized they just threw it back on the grill and came back as an extra extra well done (not what we ordered) and seemed kind of for baddness. My meal was great, but the only person at the table who enjoyed it as all other meals had problems but couldn't really get servers attention to fix anything (again not his fault). We did try flagging people over. couple times. not the best experience at all and not even anyone over to apologize.
We had a reservation which was great because we sat immediately. Service was great as the server was very friendly. My wife really enjoyed her meal, but I found there to be way too much spice on my New York strip loin. I couldn't taste meat at all which was very disappointing for me.
It was best service I've ever had there. Great food !
