First time to this location. Excellent services, incredible dishes and right atmosphere.
Tried primed rib (10 oz) & top sirloin (both 6 oz & 8 oz) for 3 people in MEDIUM grilled.

Taste not forget for 2 days. Highly recommended!

Downside got to be insufficient air condition in this big area and cheesecake dessert need improvement.

Excellent steakhouse in the Esplanade. Really beautiful interior design with fireplace and comfortable seating. Our server was wonderful and came by to check on us often. Steaks and sides all delicious and Billy Miner pie was awesome.

The Keg is always a good choice whether it’s a special occasion, dinner date, friends getting together for drinks. Quality food at a reasonable price. Service was very good at this location (it varies by location). It’s been our go to for over a decade!

Loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Although spacious, there were still nooks and crannies for private or intimate dining options, and the bar was not the central focal point to distract quiet dinners. The service was very professional and our server was polite and fun. The food, as expected from a Keg, was delicious and exactly served as ordered. I made reservations through open table, however the hostess did not record that we were there, which resulted in an annoying email with regards to being a no show, so make sure to inform the greeter that you had a reservation. Overall, I would absolutely eat there again!

A very good meal - the tirrayaki steak was excellent and a comprehensive but relatively expensive wine list complemented the food well. Good atmosphere and good service

Everything was perfect . . From the apps to the main course to the Billy Miner dessert. Went to the Yonge and Eglinton location a few times in a row and the service and quality dropped off from the regular Keg quality. Good decision not to give up on the Keg. York Street and Esplanade locations are superior to the Yonge and Eglinton location.

We had a great table (booth), some of our steaks that were ordered medium, were a little overdone - more to medium/well done but still tasty. One of us ordered fresh vegetables but half of the plate was asparagus and maybe a few pieces of red pepper (we expected carrots, cauliflower, green beans or broccoli which seems the norm? We felt that our server, although efficient, seemed somewhat 'terse' - he seemed very anxious to get our order, even though we were not in that much of a rush. We felt maybe someone was waiting for our table, yet when we looked around, the place wasn't even full - so not sure what his problem was. They asked us if it was an occasion that we were eating there and we responded yes - but don't know why they asked.

I eat here before every concert at the rink and only once was my order "very slightly" incorrect (Chicago vs regular) and our server apologized for misunderstanding and took it off the bill. Management is great at checking up on you especially when there two or more shows in town and things get crazy!

THEY GET IT...EAT HERE!

Service was slow and unattentive. The presentation of the food on the plate was like a child threw it together. For the price it was very disappointing. Will never go to the Esplanade Keg again....I can spend less money somewhere else and get better value and service!!!

The glasses we were served were dirty and it happened twice.
The patio was dirty...it looked like they sprayed down the part where the high tops face the street. It was extremely dirty and I was wearing open toed sandals and my feel were dirty because of it. Also my bag fell and landed in the dirty muddy water so the bus bot was nice enough to bring me another napkin to wipe my bag off.

As usual The Keg provided a very good steak dinner at a good price with excellent service....BUT.....Both my partner & I were wearing light coloured shorts and we both came back with stains on the back of them from sitting in something.
I will still return to The Keg Esplanade but I hope they will be better at wiping down the seats when cleaning the tables between patrons.

The Draft Beer selection was limited, steak was excellent! Portions where very generous! Too many "runners" meaning all different people give you your food...that being said the service was good!.
