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.

Waiter Dan was fantastic. When I asked if the kitchen would slice the ribeye I ordered to shared with my Mom, the answer was no they don’t do that. Sadly since my stroke I have-no movement in my left arm and hand. So Dan and his manager stepped in to do it for us. The food was exceptional as usual. A night almost ruined was saved by a customer service oriented waiter.
Some feedback to the kitchen staff. Get over yourself and just say yes next time. Slice and present our steak beautifully so I don’t have to struggle to eat at your restaurant with my family and friends.

I did not like the booth that we were at.It was too big and long and hard to hear what friends were saying across the table,Noisy!Echo! Too many waitress interruptions.Found her efficient but very abrasive and intrusive as far as interrupting our conversations.The meal was nice but expensive and so going to the Keg would only be maybe once a year time.

Food was good. Service at table was good. Hostess less than adequate. We were seated waiting for third guest. Hostess told her we were not there yet. We were all worried about each other. I went to look for her and she had been waiting 20 mins after checking with hostess. Not impressed. Hostess first denied telling her we had not checked in. She then changed her story when my friend corrected her. Not the start I wanted for my birthday dinner. Hostess gave a weak apology with a giggle. I will wait for friends at the entrance in the future.

We were sat at an awkward table in the middle of the dining room surrounded by large parties which made conversation difficult. I found the food to be bland compared to how I remember the keg being. Not sure what changed by my past keg experiences have been wonderful but this experience fell a bit short. That being said our server was awesome! I forget her full name but she told us to call her “ree”. She’s so good at her job and building relationships with her tables.

The steak and shrimp was done to perfection outstanding! The au jus was perfect. Service was very friendly, attentive and warm. Great place to celebrate special occasions. Dessert was simply fantastic and the coffee added a wonderful finale to our meal. The experience definitely was memorable and I highly recommend dining at the Keg in Ajax.

Was good as always although was disappointed that even though I highlighted in my reservation and told the services staff many times it was a special celebration, we did not get the surprise dessert with sparkler which would have been a good close to a fine meal.

We have been celebrating special occasions at this Keg for years. We keep going back because of the service and the food.
Again, the service was impeccable!
The food was also great for 3 out of 5 of us. One order was the special that was supposed to include lobster legs. Instead, they were over-cooked, chewy lobster claws that were very difficult to break open.
Also, out of 2 filet mignons ordered medium well, one was perfect and one was way overdone. The overdone one was very dry and hard to eat.
And finally, whatever happened to the sweet potato fries?
Thank you.

Reservation made early in the week. Got there 5 minutes early, table was not ready until 8:15pm, where we were placed in very close proximity to another table kind of awkwardly. Was supposed to get drinks for free, but showed up on the bill - did not want to complain.

Food was great, the server was great, seating and reservation not the greatest.
