The Keg always has yummy steak and the twice baked potatoes are to die for. Our waiter was great. My only complaint is that the tables are too close and I hate having to crawl over people to get in and out.

Spending the weekend in Kingston visiting my daughter who goes to Queens, so we decided to have dinner at The Keg - which has always been one of my favourite restaurants. This was a celebration dinner (my daughter got a great job at Queens for the upcoming year) so all three of us had lobster! The dinner was decadently delicious, and our server Richard made our dinner even more enjoyable. Even brought us a giant piece of pie with a sparkler in it to cap off our meal. I hope we sit in his section next time we dine there :)

The Keg is my favourite restaurant! The rib steak and fillet mignon are the best!! No other place can compare!! I have been going for years and I have never been disappointed!

Everything was amazing the only thing we found
the tables are too!!! close together hard for customers and staff to get around chairs and if the people at the next table are loud it is very hard to have your own conversation
A little more personal space would be nice

Our server Courtney was excellent!!!!

Our server Michael was great . The issues were with the food . 6 plates were sent out for 5 people . All the steaks were cooked wrong/ served with the wrong sides. My rare was a med rare . My father's med rare was blue. And my grandmother's entire meal was burnt . The twice baked potato was black , the chicken was so dry and over fried. The manager luckily got her a new meal , but it never should have left the kitchen. As well as took care of desserts. Majority of our party works in the industry, so we know our sever was not at fault. The meal was good but it could have been a lot better.
Also the sever in the next section was speak extremely loud. We could hear him across the room
Not the quiet dining atmosphere we came for.

We greatly enjoyed our recent dinner at the Keg in Kingston. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and the food is glorious! The decor is lovely with much exposed brick and mood lighting. The temperature was a tad cool each time the main door opened from the street, but the delicious hot coffee helped that situation. This is a great location and our show at the Grand Theatre was within walking distance.

Great food and great service. Loved it. As usual. Only minor complaint is that we had asked for a specific table and were told we couldn’t get it. We still got a nice booth but the hostess made it appear that it would incovenience her to seat us at table we had asked for. Her attitude seemed a little more concerned about what was good for her and not the customer.

Could not eat there as it was not accessible for those with mobility disabilities. The restaurant is downstairs, no ramp. We were travelling and since we love the Keg googled it and found one in Kingston. We went out of our way losing valuable time to eat a much needed, and delicious meal. We always go to The Keg in Windsor, Ontario, Devonshire and they are always accomodating. The Keg in Kingston was not Accessible, We were very disappointed, also the parking was not good. No handicap accessibility sould be mentioned at this Keg. We were so disappointed. We are sure it is an excellent restaurant for people who do not have mobility disabilities. Thank you!

Tasty food well presented. It seemed that there were long gaps between the various stages of the dining experience .... from bringing water to bringing drinks to bringing bread to taking the order to bringing the apps to bringing the meal (which wasn't hot). The desert came quickly and the bill was presented without delay.

Everything was great with the exception of my lobster tails, they were dry, very dry. At almost 3/4 of the way through my meal a manager came to our table to see how things were. I informed him of the lobster tail issue, he went back to the kitchen and brought me out 2 more succulent lobster tails. Although I was done my meal. Still a great gesture on his behalf.

Great staff. The Keg was extremely busy on a Saturday night. Glad I made reservations. Hats off to the servers and kitchen staff as they handled it with ease. We expected a long wait time but were pleasantly surprised to have our meals served quickly and 100% accurate. Very happy with the quality of service. Will be back again.

Sad asked for quiet table told waiter many times we were not in a rush but felt rushed he was back at table every few minutes to see if we were ready he kept saying he wasn’t trying to rush us but In fact was toldas we were still drinking our wine that desert was on him and did we want coffee as he wanted to get it going again we told him we weren’t in a rush neat thing coffee was at the table while we were still drinking wine he just wanted us to eat quickly so they could flip the table so not what we had wanted for an anniversary dinner will be a long time before giving this location another try

As usual everything about our anniversary evening at the KEG was to expectations. The hostess, the waiter and food and complimentary Billy Miner Pie were all excellent. The only issue which was most noticeable was the seat cushion material was torn approximately 6 to 8 inches exposing the foam padding, not up to par with the usual total excellence expected at a KEG. We will happily return.

My frustration actually every time I'm there....is when a customer leaves and the staff clean off the table - they spray a cleanser which really takes away from my meal as that is all I can smell and feel the the spray sometimes lingers over others meals;
I don't believe a cleanser should be sprayed when others are eating at tables either right beside or in close proximity.
