The Keg is always good. If you want a great steak it's the place to go. Service is good most times but this visit it was fantastic. I would definitely recommend the Keg to a friend.

everything was good except there was a light hanging over our table that was going from dim to full light most of the time we were there very distracting from a nice meal .

I originally booked for 4 people, then I changed it to 8, and then back to 4 because people dropped out. The Keg was very accommodating during this process and even helped get us an earlier reservation time. We arrived a few minutes beforehand and our table was ready. We had two servers all night (one guy helping another because they were so busy) and we never had to wait whenever we needed anything- their service was outstanding. I’m a huge fan of the Keg in general (been there many times) and this visit did not disappoint. The food was AMAZING! Will go back again soon for sure!

Service was slow, other tables were served their menus and drinks before we were. Our table was overlooked and I made a reservation for a birthday occasion, so it put a damper on the occasion at first. However, our waitress was great once we were finally served.

Great food. Awesome service. Only complaint, which is mild, is get your burrata and tomato salad figured out. No tomatoes last time, no fresh basil this time. Burrata is the hard part to find. Basil and tomatoes are easier.

I have visited this location many times; with friends, family and clients. I have found consistently the service is mediocre. On my last visit our server was very matter-of-fact to the point of being snooty; the visa machine starts at 20% tip, there was not service worthy of 20% on my last visit. I am also finding the food is become mediocre for what we pay for it. Hopefully this changes as there are many other choices in St. John’s now

Great meal. Excellent steak. The best in town. Has quite a few gluten free options which is awesome but when the complementary bread was served, they don’t have gluten free bun to serve as GF bread. Many lower end restaurants do it consistently but not KEG. Our server was attentive, efficient and very polite.

I received an old potato or was overcooked.
The scallops were overcooked-rubbery.
We received a small discount on the tab.
Very loud as usual.

First day opened after the state of emergency, they were out of some items but the server let us know up front. Kendra was very informative, friendly and checked on us frequently without being intrusive. The food was great, best steak I had in a long time. Always enjoy the keg.

We love the keg and go there 2 or 3 times a year, usually for special occasions like birthdays or anniversary. Tonight we decided to go for a date. We went early and made it just before the rush. Our server and his trainee were great. They were knowledgeable about the menu and gave us a lot of great information but we stuff with our usual, the New York peppercorn and the top sirloin keg classic. Our meals were excellent and served in a timely manner. Our only complaint was the Cesar salad was very bland. Not much flavour. Otherwise it was great!

Didnt get bread. Steaks were extremely tough. Crab and lobster were tasteless and dried up. Asked for drink refills didn’t get them. We were offered a new order but then the rest were finished. So we cancelled the order , Then it all got brought to our table. Zero communication i guess. We are all regular customers but it has been like this for awhile now. We will not be back. Such a waste of money!!

Everything was good except my husband’s steak which was overdone. He asked for medium rare and it was clearly medium well. He ate it and we didn’t raise any issue at the restaurant.

The Keg can be relied upon for consistency and it was pretty good. Service was excellent.

Two food issues:
1. Peppercorn steak was coated and I
Mean coated in peppercorns. Not usually this heavy or overbearing. Maybe a training issue?

2. Ordered tomato and burrata salad. Was surprised to hear they were out of tomatoes. A burrata shortage. Yes. But no tomatoes? Ok. Asked if they could put any beg with the burrata as that's what we love. Came out with baby tomatoes. Perfect!!! Easy customer issue to solve versus saying no tomatoes. Could have been arranged a little nicer on the plate but taste was excellent.
