Dinner at the Key at least once a month is the first choice for two old friends determined to stay in touch. The food is great (mushroom neptune, escargot, peppercorn steak...yum), the staff is friendly, courteous and very accommodating. Always a relaxing and fun evening.

Wonderful service, friendly server!! Music too loud. Not a sports bar and wanted to enjoy a birthday dinner. Food was good but my steak wasn’t tender and over cooked.
Look forward to seeing a better experience.

The food was delicious and had a wonderful waiter. Unfortunately, the hostesses were speaking to themselves and were unorganized. We arrived at 7:20pm and I told the hostess behind the table that we had a reservation at 7:30 under my name and another hostess interrupted claiming that everyone under that name had already arrived... After some time of waiting, they found a table to seat us at. Other than this incident at the beginning, we enjoyed our time.

My favorite at the Keg is King Crab. My husband had top sirloin. We both enjoyed. Only drawback is the small amount of vegetables given with the dinner.

Birthday meal with my family. My mom had asked for prime rib but they were all out (this had also happened to her the previous time she went within a month). Unfortunate as this was why she picked this restaurant. The server was a little over the top, and forgot to give us steak knives with our meal- we had to flag down someone else to bring us some for the table. Was busy, as it was a Friday night. Overall experience was satisfactory, I guess- the food was pretty good. Nothing to be overly excited about though.

We had a nice young man serving us which made the experience nice. Found it kind of noisy and crowded and it had to be an early dinner than we are used to since that was all that was available even though I booked early on line. Food was okay but could have been more flavourful. Used to the prime rib at Baton Rouge which is more tender, much more flavourful and served with both its own juice and also a tasty gravy. However, it was a lovely touch when we were served a beautiful, rich piece birthday cake. Might try a different dinner option next time but thank you!

Excellent service, waiter was pleasant prompt and attentive throughout the mail , food was excellent prepared as requested and presented to the table at the proper temperature. Tables were properly presented upon arrival and maintained during the meal. Although not requested prior to arrival a birthday
presentation of desert was made and appreciated by the recipient. Have visited in the past and will do so in the future.

Hadn’t been to the Ajax Keg in a while and decided to go for my birthday.
Had what I always had but was a bit disappointed with the garlic mash potatoes - runnier than usual, and my medium well steak which was very bad. They also burnt my daughter’s slider patties and she couldn’t eat them.
Everybody else enjoyed their meals of fillet mignon and chicken and ribs. My lobster was tasty too.
The service was good and our meals didn’t take too long to be served.
Overall it was a good evening but below the level I had experienced before.

Few round tables for large groups. Long tables are not ideal for group conversation. Courses are served too hastily. Steaks are expensive but not cooked according to order - medium was delivered as well done and tasted like leather. Caesar salad dressing appeared too dilute.

The bread, Escargot appetizer and the dessert were good. Coffee - don’t get me started

We were very happy to have been able to book for a Friday night, considering we were a family with 3 young children. We were welcomed and did not have to wait, we were seated the minute we walked through the door. Service was warm and friendly and our service included our children in our conversations surrounding the menu. We were very happy to have chosen the Keg to celebrate 3 family events on the same night.

Overall the food was good. We were sat in the bar area because they could not accommodate a high chair for our son. The waiter was very short with us and visited our table not very often. Not very descriptive on what we ordered. The experience was okay.

I was very upset and disappointed. Our reservation meant nothing! Waited an hour past our scheduled reservation time. Staff tried to keep us apprised of the situation and did provide complimentary appetizers, however, I had a large party of seniors without seats so was getting more frustrated by the minute. Last year, we went to the same Keg on a Saturday without a reservation and were seated quicker. Come to the end of our main meal and the staff advised the kitchen was closing so if we wanted dessert, we had to order now. Even the staff suggested calling manager to complain during the week. Not sure I will return after this bad experience.

The food came in a timely fashion and was hot upon arrival. Everything was delicious. The staff were courteous and attentive once we were seated, but somehow a reservation of 4 plus a stroller was interpreted as 4 including a stroller, so the table was a bit crowded.
