We went on a Saturday. Dine out Vancouver was happening so the restaurant was crowded. It was my birthday celebration which I added to the open table reservation. It was not acknowledged. Our order took 40 minutes and my partner ordered fries and they brought him mashed potatoes. We had to wait again for the fries. Above all, not the best experience. It was my birthday dinner and it was very forgettable and disappointing.

My friend and I go to this restaurant approximately every three weeks for dinner. The service and food has always been excellent.

Yesterday they offered us the Dine Out Menu. We ordered off that menu since most of the items offered are the ones that we usually order when it is not Dine Out.

My friend had the steak and lobster tail and I ordered salmon.

Both our appetizers of Caesar salad and jumbo shrimp cocktail were delicious.

His steak was undercooked and chewy. The lobster tail was a lot smaller than usual. My salmon was delicious and cooked perfectly.

For dessert he had the Spanish coffee and I had the cheesecake. The cheesecake was slightly frozen and had a weird texture to it. I’ve had their cheesecake before and do not recall it being such low quality. It tasted like one of those frozen cheese cakes you get at the supermarket that’s not fully a “cheesecake”.

Sometimes restaurants who participate in Dine Out will offer a smaller portions or lower quality items due to food cost. I don’t know if this is the situation here or just a coincidence because I’ve always had excellent meals at this Keg.

The service overall was good, just A few minor setbacks in service such as not lighting the tea candle to heat up the butter before our food arrived (cold butter & lobster = 👎🏼) and drinks arriving after half the appetizers were eaten. Not a big deal as our server did his best on what seemed to be a very busy evening.

My husband and I love coming to the Granville Island Keg, we find the location perfect for date night... then we can go for an after dinner walk and window shop in the night around the local stores.

the food is always above notch, and the servers are always really nice and fun.

I love Keg& this is my favorite location! If I want to give one suggestion, there was absolutely not many customers today because maybe due to covid-omicron?! Yet, customers were all sitting back to back booths. And our booth was cornered by the family table with kids and pretty loud oldies enjoying drinking… wished we were little more spaced out one booth between, so our jackets won’t touch each other by beside booth customers. Anyway, food and service by the waitress was great as usual!

I've never been disappointed in the Keg. The food is very good and the experience has always been fantastic. I equate value on the same line as affordability. I couldn't afford to eat here very often! That's why I ranked value on the lower side. But otherwise, 5 stars all around. :)

Services and food was excellent, the only complaint is that I booked way in advance and was put at the worst table possible. Especially when booking I mentioned it was for a special occasion.

I dined here on New Year’s Eve. The restaurant was very busy. Our server was great, but the food was okay. I was hoping to be sat closer to the door as I’m pretty sure I said in my reservations notes that I would be dining with a man who has mobility issues. We had a nice table, but the fire was quite hot which was behind us. The ambience was nice, and the host stayed close to us and chatted which I appreciated. Our server also made it worth it.

This is first time we celebrate my son’s birthday at the restaurant since lockdown. Unbelievable service and food in the country. They gave us the entire floor to make sure that we were safe and enjoyed the dinner. My son has serious health issue and needs extra caution when go out for dinner. The manager surprised us and reserved the entire floor. This is so special for us. Thanks again for what you did for us. Much appreciated.

Food: I tried out different locations Kegs cross country. The Granville Island is the best. I live far far away still visit this restaurant. My son and daughter empty their plates in 5 mins. Thanks Chefs for the delicious food.

Service: Valerie provided excellent professional service. With her care, we didn’t have to wear anything. Thanks again.

Overall: Excellent. That made us have a wonderful evening.

Once again, thank you so much. Wish all of your staff have happy holiday and stay safe.

Always love going to The Keg! We started off with the mussels which were a holiday feature. I was excited for mussels however we had a few and noticed right away it was extremely salty! The mussels were pretty dry and shrivelled as they were way overcooked. We mentioned this to our waiter and he was so great about it. Shortly after a manager by the name Melissa was super sweet and apologized about the dish, took it off our bill and offered something else in return. We kindly declined as we had already demolished the bread and butter, and we knew our steaks wouldnt disappoint! And they definitely did not! Cooked to perfection! Love me a good Keg visit :)

The food was very good. The delivery of food was so slow that we debated whether we wanted to wait and have dessert or just pay the bill and leave. It was a Saturday but we were there at 4:45, before the usual crowd

Excellent martini. One of the few places that make a good wedge salad. My husband had the bone in strip loin recommended by our server - which was tender and very tasty. My lobster dinner was good too - garlic butter accompaniment could be more garlicky. Service was fast & friendly

Went to the keg to celebrate an exciting life event and when the waiter asked if we were celebrating something my group told the waiter what it was and rather than asking if we wanted a complimentary piece of pie (which we had heard was a thing from friends who went to the keg) we were basically told to order something off the dessert menu. It was like our reason for celebrating wasn't valid enough? Super awkward interaction. Also, our waiter asked if our group was ready to order and when we said yes they responded with "great, let me just go take this other tables order first." Honestly not the best interaction and poor service. Also, we had ordered appetizers and the keg classic meal with salads. The salads came out before our appetizers even came out which seemed weird and it kinda threw everyone for a loop because not everyone ordered a salad so they had nothing to eat which the rest ate salad. Honestly not really impressed with the service and it definitely taints my opinion of the keg in the future.

Was sat at a table for 25 min and no one came to serve us. Had to ask for someone to be served.

Was offered free appy and when the appy came was very overcooked. Had to replace the appy with another appy.

Prime rib that showed up was under the heat lamp for so long it cooked the prime rib and sides were cold.

It was our wedding anniversary, and we were treated to a complimentary glass of sparkling wine to start. The service and the food were first rate. We hadn't been to this restaurant since Covid restrictions started, but we won't wait so long before our next visit.

Service was terrible…we sat there for 10 mins and not even water was brought to us. Finally when the server showed up she looked like she was annoyed and didn’t want to even be there.
Because one person at the table wanted bread, she brought only half a loaf only…who does that!?

Don’t know how to say this in the most polite way possible, but it was a sincerely disappointing experience. Didn’t feel welcome or attended to. Sure it may have been a busier evening (being a Friday), but I’ve been to busier Keg locations and their service was fantastic (as usual). Unfortunately, this experience was extremely disappointing. I would not return to Keg for a while and if I did, it most certainly wouldn’t be to this location.
