    Service was the worst I have ever seen at Keg. NO butter with bread had to ask. Glasses 🥂 were wet with water in them had to ask to change twice. Fully loaded potatoe came with no toppings, had to ask. Just terrible Service won't be back again.

    Prime rib dinner was ordered at Medium, however a portion (about half) was served Well Done. Did not eat it all. Did not bother to box it to take home. Although a birthday was noted in the reservation, no acknowledgement of that was made by the server & complimentary dessert not offered. When we advised the server, we declined dessert (should not have to beg), paid the bill & left. It was the second time this year we have been to The Keg to celebrate a family birthday and have left a little disappointed. The Keg will not be our choice for any time soon.

    Food was consistent like every other keg. Ordered prime rib and ny strip with Billy minor pie for my husbands birthday. Wrong orders showed up and the wrong bill showed up. Better off eating at another keg than this one.

    Always go to The Keg for a steak. It was excellent. I had fries with it and that was a mistake on my part. They were not very good. Other than that, was a great meal and the cost was amazing!

    Here is why I gave the service a 4/5. I’d even go to 3/5. We were in a crowded section and most of the restaurant was empty. I , long ago and far away worked at the Granville Island Keg. Mr Tidball and my dad owned a ski hill together. I love the Keg! But, the server passed the hot butter across me because the 2 other tables right beside us were occupied and she couldn’t get around. (That not my problem). So perhaps in the future, don’t cram us all into a section.

    Particularly love the atmosphere and fireplaces here. We had excellent food and outstanding service! Our beautiful Cuban server, Yulien, was highly personable, professional and very attentive. Her flawless service really helped make our evening special. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the mashed potatoes were delish and don’t miss out on the the Billy Miner Pie - it is amazing!!!

    One steak came out cooked completely wrong. They took back and brought it back out overcooked well after the table had finished eating. Made for bad eating environment. No compensation offered.

    Great food. I like the fire place. Nice washrooms. I would not order the onion rings again. Steak and lobster was great. I was expecting the broccoli and beat vegetables to be warmer, as they were on the cold side. Service was wonderful. I didn’t like being seated near the kitchen entrance. I liked the drink which was served while I waited for a table. I like the after dinner candy at the front desk.

    Pop was flat even after a replacement, too much ice in the drinks, or watered down . It appears that the portion sizes on the salads have been reduced. Steak was as requested. Service was very good , waitress was accommodating and attempted

    We had an amazing dinner, the food was fabulous and service was excellent. The one thing that was off for us was the coffee at the end of our meal. It was really bad tasting coffee and for 4$ a cup it was not worth it. Otherwise we had a really nice time.

    One of the steaks was overcomes and while we asked for creamy double shot Pina colada’s, we received watered down drinks. We order this same drink from other locations and both Scarborough and Pickering/Ajax have been perfect. Esplanade location was not what we have become accustomed to.

    When I arrived they tried to sit me next to a door to the outside of the restaurant on a cold and windy night. If I had stayed there my food would have been cold before I finished it. My server also had to be reminded to bring my drink and when it arrived it was the wrong spice level and size. One of the poorest meals I have eaten at a keg.
