We normally enjoy the Keg but this Sunday was poor. Even though we had made reservation 6-days in advance, we had to wait 40 minutes to be seated. We were told the other guests at our table were still enjoying their Keg "experience." It seems the staff were not too concerned about our experience.
When we finally were seated, the booth/table was in an awkward location. I had specifically requested a table because some of my guests have limited mobility making a booth comfortable.
We will give the Keg another chance. Hopefully, we will have a better "experience."

Our date night celebrating my husband’s 75th birthday was a pleasant experience. The waitress was knowledgeable, accommodating regarding our special dietary needs & the service was great! The food was delicious & cooked to perfection!

Had a reservation for 7, had to wait 20 minutes for a table which was the same length as people just walking in. What is the point of a reservation?

The atmosphere was terrible, keg Oshawa is much better.

Usually my number one concern when going to a restaurant, is getting my food while it's hot and cooked the way I like. Everything was hot and cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly! Kudos Keg!

Been visiting this Keg for 12 years consistently and anywhere from 4-7 times a year in order to celebrate various special occasions! Can't go wrong! Great service and food. Priced a little on higher end but well worth it! Never had any concerns from a customer perspective! One suggestion... If and when possible, make reservations to avoid disappointment or long wait times!

I took my girlfriend to the Keg in Ajax for her birthday. She absolutely loved the lobster and steak dinner that she had, she was in heaven . The service was amazing and they even gave her a piece of birthday cake with a candle which was delicious and much appreciated.

Our family enjoy dining at The Keg Ajax.. However, we would like to see more vegan/vegetarian options available. Most in the family are meat eaters and really enjoy the steak and seafood options but the vegan/vegetarians find there are not much to choose from. (Example of veg. Portabelo mushrooms, Squash, sweet potatoes, wild rice etc. would be great) Thank You !

Keg is always overpriced for what you get. My steak was kind of tough but not terrible. Service was good but they mixed up how we wanted the steaks cooked.

One of our favourite places to go however, each time I go I never have the best experience.... One thing I don't particularly like is that they don't have round tables. when you have 7 in a party, one person gets stuck at a table themselves or in the case this time around, four people get squished on one side of the table. We were not allowed to put a chair on the end in case people arrived at the table for two beside us (and no one did)... So I left with a sore back using the corner of the table to eat my dinner.....after paying over $300 for the meal. It was so noisy in the restaurant because again, large groups and long tables, people yelling across to table to talk. We celebrated my daughters 18th and I could barely hear the conversation at out table.

Typical Keg experience, but my New York striploin was a little on the fatty side. Not all visits can be perfect I guess.

For three of us dinner was outstanding. Unfortunately the fourth dinner was a great disappointment. The bacon wrapped chicken was ordered and it was dry,grisly and chewy. The asparagus puree was unappetizing and unnecessary It is difficult to find something for very particular people sometimes , however this entree did not fit the bill.

Went with another couple for both of our very first times at The Keg. We weren’t disappointed! Our server, Dan was fantastic and answered all our questions. We were never left waiting for anything, including the desert menu or bill, unlike many other restaurants. You can really tell Dan enjoys his job.
The food was also fantastic. It really was as good as they say. My steak melted in my mouth, cooked perfectly. We’ll definitely be back!

We frequently celebrate family birthday at The Keg and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. My only minor complaint is that it is often noisy and hard to have a quiet conversation.

I ordered a steak, medium, not wanting to chance medium well, even though I'm a cook it all the way through person. I wanted to savour a good Keg steak, hence the medium.
Dinner, with all the trimmings, showed up and looked amazing. I mostly ate my sides, wishing to enjoy my steak mainly on it's own. I did cut into it, first slice was nice, second a bit chewy, and checked the steak. It was raw. I didn't fuss, asked my server if I could have it cooked a little more. It came back excellent, the way it should have been in the first place. Manager got involved, very nice and apologetic, and I was given another order of the sides I had, free of course. In the end, a good steak, but it was unfortunate I had tom send it back to get it the way I ordered it.
