Only issue we had was how close the tables are together near the fireplace. We could hear the entire table next to us conversation and vice versa. If we go back to this location we will ask for a different table should we get seated there again.

Great service by our waiter Ciro, food was great and we enjoyed our dinner. Music was a bit loud for our taste, but all in all a great experience again.

Not one of our better visits to the Keg. Our service was extremely rushed at the beginning of the evening. Waiter was difficult to understand and spoke way too fast. He brought salads before drinks and then only gave us enough bread for 4 and we were a party of 7. We had to wait for him to come back and ask for more, which seemed to annoy him.
After entrees were cleared, waiter suddenly brought us a birthday Billy Miner pie for 7 people to share, however some of us wanted our own desserts so we had to ask for dessert menus. Coffee was served long before we even got to order desserts and then we had to wait again for desserts to arrive while the other people were finished with the birthday pie. All in all, service seemed very disorganized, which took away from our experience.

We celebrated our anniversary at the Keg 4th Ave and we received excellent service at all levels. Salvatore our server was great as always and the food was excellent. This is the best Keg in Calgary for a great dining experience.

We went to the Keg on 4th to celebrate my Dad's 70th Birthday (we were a table of 6). Our server was Stewart and he was absolutely exceptional and we all really liked him! The steaks seemed extra tender and delicious. Service was fantastic, the setting and ambiance was excellent and I will definitely be returning with my family. Oh... and there was a Birthday Card from the Keg at the table when we arrived. Such a great little touch :)

I made a reservation and indicated it is a date. I got a table just right beside a hallway to the kitchen. And the server is a dude, and not really friendly. I go to the keg almost once a mont, so sad to say that I really disappointed this time.

For the 3rd time in 2 weeks I’ve had the lunch steak Caesar salad here. Two of three times the steak had lots of gristle and was chewy. If I do go again, I’ll be having chicken in my Caesar or getting the Cobb. Not so good for a place that advertises as a steakhouse...

Our daughter insisted we go to the Keg for her birthday dinner based on last year's unblemished birthday dinner at the Keg. Joseph our server genuinely wanted to ensure that our dining experience was exceptional. Joseph was very engaging with great humor and perfect timing for table attendance. The appetizers and main courses were perfectly prepared and seasoned, topped off with Billy Miner pie that closed the evening.

The Keg's alcoholic beverages were sampled as well and all was finished gleefully before the evenings end.

Kevin, the new dining manager made his way to our table for a visit and we expressed the wonderful times we have had at the Keg over several decades. I am sure our adult children will continue with their adventures at the Keg.

The service, food and staff were excellent.
I had an open table cheque and was scared to use it. As the last time I tried at another restaurant in Calgary the manager threw the cheque at me and said it was no good.
The staff here welcome the cheque with a smile. They were kind and made us feel super special. Love this keg !!.
Thanks for making our day

The service was excellent to start but after the meals were delivered we barely saw our server who also brought us the wrong bill. It was also very loud in the lounge. I would recommend turning down the music.

§ our meals did not arrive at the same time
§ my steak was not prepared as ordered, I did not mention that to our server because it was a business meeting, the conversation was most important than a delay on my order.

The Keg is a consistent spot to eat out if you like steak, or any of the other items on their menu. The service was very good, and food was good. My only comment is I find their restaurants too dark, as I had to use my phone light to read the menu. But maybe some people like that dark, secretive feeling in a restaurant. No complaints.

Food was average. My Cobb salad was mostly lettuce, but it was fresh. The other salad looked better as it was more balanced with lettuce and the ‘good’ stuff. Our server was good.

Food was great. Service was good but server was curt. Maybe having a bad day, not sure, but could loosen up and be more responsive to and interactive with guests. That’s what we are used to at the keg.

Food was excellent throughout. Service as well as greeted by the manager right away. Drinks took a while but delivered just as we were mentioning the delay so no big deal.

One difference was we got put in a little alcove as a group cancelled. It was blocked off from the rest of the restaurant so I couldn’t people watch but the guys liked it because was very quiet. Everyone being seated went past us so heavy traffic. Again the alcove was large enough that it was not a big deal.

The only issue is the price. The Keg has always been consistent in quality but the prices are starting to get too high. Hence only going there now for special occasions due to affordability.

Our meal at the Keg was delicious. It arrived in a timely manner, cooked perfectly and was reasonably priced. It took a little while for our waiter to come take our order, but the table next to us was keeping him busy with a very detailed order from the looks of it, so we understood the delay.

Wonderful place to spend an evening. Other than eating and drinking too much it was an awesome experience. Good thing we were staying in the hotel for the night. The food was amazing. The staff was excellent. The noise level might of been a little loud but not too bad at all. We had a nice booth tucked off to the side that was out of the way. Perfect. Thank You!

The Dinner was good, not exceptional like all our other times. Food was ok not great again, think it was due to the fact it was “extremely “ busy therefore the quality of food and service was just ok.

When we arrived for reservation for my daughter in-law birthday.. the guy at the front said they have soo many people waiting to get in not sure when we could get seated. When we said seriously why do walk -ins take priority over reservations. Only at that point we were given a table.

We will right it off to the unexpected customer evening .



We come to this location a lot for dinner and this experience was disappointing .


Waited extremely long for d

was ok not great like all other

We went to the bathroom and they cleared the table with all our drinks on it. They forgot the salads before dinner and gave it to us after we were done and waited over 40mins for our food and didn’t compensate anything

Seat cushions in booths have been compressed to nothing for over a year - very uncomfortable and need to be redone!
