Steak & Lobster
top sirloin, atlantic lobster tail
Hey well it’s the Keg. The menu hasn’t changed since our parents used to take us for surf and turf and it was still called The Keg and Cleaver. Regaled the young staff with the stories of days long passed, they were gracious and polite. Bless them.
The bar menu could use an update. We were a bit disappointed in the selections of gin and cognac in particular. There are some fabulous Vancouver Island distilleries that would love to have their products on offer. Beefeater, Gordon’s and another old school gin, I don’t recall were the only choices. Tanqueray wasn’t even on the list and the only tonic they had was Schweppes.
The wine selection was good. We had a bog standard Shiraz, not too expensive. It disappeared quickly.
Peppercorn steak with garlic mashed potatoes was delicious, although I asked for medium rare and it came quite rare. I didn’t mind but most steakhouses seem to undercook, probably because so many people send them back.
My friend had the teriyaki sirloin (I think). He enjoyed it and also remarked how nice it was to get back to the Keg after so many years.
All told it was about $100 per person, including appetizers (escargot stuffed mushrooms and a Caesar salad), and Keg-sized Hennessy VSOP and a Spanish Coffee from the digestif menu.
Please tip your server well. I hope you find this helpful.
Amazing service and delicious steaks, cooked to perfection. Blue cheese steak was one of the best I’ve ever had. Looking forward to the next visit.
Beth was awesome! Never a bad evening at the keg 💗
We celebrated my birthday and it was amazing
Great food on our visit. Prime rib was excellent and the services was great.
Service is subpar. It does not seem to be getting any better. Slow to bring drinks and food. Mice running around in the dining area. This is an ongoing problem at this location.
The host people seem confused about who is seating who where and can’t find the reservation, then can’t see that I’m vaccinated in their verification system. It’s just a mess.
Great experience. Very good food. We left fed and happy!
I had Prime Rib + Lobster. The Prime Rib was perfectly marbled and the lobster had a firm, snappy texture. We also had an excellent server- friendly, efficient, and engaging. Overall, it was a solid dining experience. 👍🏻
The food was not good. Prime rib was fatty and not as good as other The keg location. This is the worst prime rib I've ever eaten from The Keg However, the service was pretty good. Overall, I would not recommend this place to my friend because of the food. Hope you guys will improve it.
Love the keg! And the Alberni location is very polished with the service and food
Always a great meal there and the atmosphere and coziness is superb! Our waiter Jeff was awesome.
The food was delicius , the service with Terra was perfect.
We had our anniversary dinner at the Keg recently. As always, the food was very good. You can always rely on the Keg for great meals. The only issue we had was with the Calamari. The batter was a but mushy. We've had the Calamari there before and it was very tasty and cooked perfectly. They gave us a complimentary piece of Billy Miner pie for our anniversary. A nice touch!
Outstanding food service served in a quiet atmosphere. Great family reunion,
my cousins recall how they enjoy the Peterbourogh ON Keg and familiar menu items
at the Keg, Alberni Street!
Brian was awesome!!! He’s a great addition to the Keg!!! Maria, Helen and Brian are our favs!! And thank you for seating us at our favorite table in the lounge 💗
See you soon!

Delightful restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Food is always yummy.
One of our party is vegetarian and said the meatloaf was excellent with tons of flavour
Darren and Bobby were outstanding with their service. The food was amazing.
Great ambiance and vibe !
My wife and I went to the Keg on Alberni Street in Vancouver to celebrate our 40 wedding anniversary and they picked a private romantic table for us. The food and service was great!
The best restaurant de vancouver, la mejor comida
My only complaint would be that the tables are a bit too far away, which is honestly splitting hairs. It was a delight to be at this location, and I hope to come back in the future!
I love the ambiance at this Keg. It has that old school steak house feel, and the food and service are always excellent.
Amazing and attentive staff and the food is extremely delicious.
Sadly, very poor inattentive service from what has always been a consistently good restaurant. One menu for the table, no drink list, no more water after appetizers. Dirty tables all over with no bussing (including ours) and idle staff wandering about. No visible restaurant leadership. Worst of all, no vaccine passport checks at the door in direct violation of the BC Public Health Order - job one in a restaurant is to ensure your guests feel safe, not to mention following PHOs in order to contribute to the recovery of the restaurant/hospitality industry in Vancouver.
Really excellent service & the taste & quality of the steaks were absolutely delicious, agreed by my date. There was a small blip with our order & they promptly covered our starter & threw in a dessert on them.
Maria & Chantal are amazing! Food is always good!
Great food. The server was running back and forth and it took several trips to get one thing, lol. But it was fine!
We both had a Filet Mignon, extremely tender, juicy, and excellent! Highly recomended.
Great service and food as always, no complaints.
Always love to eat at that keg on old Bernie Street especially table 19th great service great people great food thanks again
I had the WARM MEDITERRANEAN CAULIFLOWER and the Blueberry Lemonade. Both were new to me and they were delicious. I've appreciated that The Keg has offered non-meat/poultry/seafood alternatives and, without exception, they've been delicious.
I love the place, but I would suggest leaving cheddar off of the beef dip sandwich.
It met expectations.
There's really only two reasons I go to the Keg, the Prime Rib and the Baby Back Ribs - always excellent.
Average experience at the Keg. Steak was good, drinks as well.
Super nice server, perfect food ◡̈
It was the best bday ever! Thank you so much!! I will def, back!!!
Good food and accommodating staff. Our server, Maria, was terrific.
Coincidentally had dinner at the Keg in Langley the night before and found the service and the food much better at that location. We did not even get offered bread with our steaks.
Loved it! Very accommodating for our family of 6. Nice ambiance.
Fantastic steaks, drinks and wine.
I hope to be back soon.
