Our granddaughter loves Billy Miner pie and there is no Keg in the city where she resides. We came to the Keg later on a Saturday night and ordered 2 servings of Billy Miner for our table of 4, but our waiter was friendly, helpful and looked after us very well. Great to know that even for such a modest order one can get such good service. We live locally so important to keep "us neighbours" well-looked after; the tourists will soon disappear!

Have eaten at Keg before and enjoyed the meals but last time both my husband ‘s and my steaks were tough. The cole slaw served with the special was salty and the other couple also found their Caesar had more garlic than usual and food was overall saltier. Not the usual quality.

One of several annual special occasions for us - excellent service, good food, good wine list. We were treated very well. We did find the noise level excessive (Friday night) and while it was ok at 6:30 by 7:30 we were unable to talk comfortably (4 people at a normal table).

We were seated upstairs by the washrooms. Never the best table. Food was great service was excellent noise level wasn’t a issue. Value for dollar is below average but that’s the norm in Vancouver.

Well this was the 2nd time we tried the Keg at Granville Island and the 2nd time that I was disappointed by the food .. the service was great but for some reason the chef doesn’t seem to know how to cook a steak.. had to send it back the 1st time and then when I got it back it was still way over done.. thankfully the manager comped our meals. I may give it one more try but I’m not too hopeful that anything will change..

I was disappointed to see the prime rib meal come with no vegetables. Just a colourless plate of meat, potato and fried onions. The meat that was edible was really good but more than half of the meat was pure fat and was very unappetizing. I had asked for no onions or horseradish but received them anyway. I was very unimpressed with this meal.

always a great meal at the keg ... loved the atmosphere, decor and menu. The food was really good as usual. The one thing that was disappointing was that happy hour was advertised outside so we ordered a drink at the bar while we waited for our reservation. When we were seated we wanted to re-order our drinks but were told happy hour was not available in the restaurant. It would have been nice to know this before we were seated as we would have ordered another drink in the bar. We did not pay for our happy hour in the bar before being seated but it was added to our bill so I am not sure why we couln't have ordered happy hour from our table. We were seated early & the rest of our party was not there yet so it would have been fine to wait in the bar if we were given the option.

It just would have been nice to be told before we left the bar area, especially since we were 20 min early for our reservation and our drinks were almost done.

Food took a long time to come. We were offered our 3rd loaf of bread before declining and waiting for our food to arrive. Food was fine but not outstanding. French fries were hot and yummy.

Food was great.
The server, on the other hand, was horrible. Probably on his first day? Never came to ask how's the food, no finger bowl (my sister ordered ribs), no smile or anything.

Well. thanks for the birthday Billy miner, but that was it. Paid tips for the billy miner and few cents for the service. Thanks for ripping the receipt and nearly throwing at the table.

We all have prime rib medium rare. The size for the cut is fine but they are pretty chewy, and we feel the grade of prime rib used is not as good as before. The roasts also have too much pure fat contents in them ( about 15 percent).

I like my steaks done a certain way and Keg always comes through with doing it right. I love the Granville Island location as I can stroll around and then come in for a great meal.

Overpriced for what you get. The quality isn't that high, and the atmosphere is nothing special for the extra price.

We were seated upstairs and I did not like how noisy and claustrophobic it was, however, the staff were quick to move us downstairs and the seating was much better.

My husband and I come here occasionally and the steak is always good, however this time my steak had grisly bits and was tasty but hard to chew. They took off my Keg sized wine from the bill. I thought that was reasonable and fair.

We will be back, of course.

One of several visits we do each year for special occasions - the noise level seemed very high this time. Food was good, although over the 15+ years we've been coming here it seems as though the quality of the steaks is not as good as it used to be.

Had a great evening before the play at the Arts Club. The staff were cognizant of the fact that we had a time constraint and were respectable of it.

Our waiter was excellent, though I felt he had too many tables to care for and was overworked.

We all enjoyed our meals but one gentleman ordered prime rib and it was stringy and he couldn’t cut it. We told our waiter and she immediately took his plate away and got him a fresh slice and it was wonderful

it was busy, and it felt like the restaurant was understaffed. our waiter never refilled our water and didn't seem to have time to ever really check in on us. the food was just okay, nothing special. I remember the steaks being better when I went a few years ago. The restaurant needs a remodeling upstairs, it feels dated and not very warm and comfortable. Same goes with the men's bathroom. Overall, it wasn't that great. It was just okay. Other Keg restaurants are a lot nicer looking.

Overall all good experience. My prime rib was done correctly, but had been left under the heat lamp too long and had dried the meat out. It tasted nice, but the meat was not like the regular freshly cut, moist tender prime rib.
