We found the restaurant very noisy and the booth crowded as there isn't anywhere to put your coats . We weren't impressed with the food. I had the bacon wrapped scallops which were overcooked. I did enjoy the Arctic char but found the cauliflower puree tasteless. Our server however was excellent

They slipped up in a few things. I ordered Prime Rub with Lobster Tails. Had to remind them about the Lobster Tails. Good things were bringing fresh Veggies for fried Onions. For the most part we love the Kingston Keg! Joel was a wonderful personal server. We will be back! Even with the 1hour & 1/2 drive. So much better than Ottawa locations !

Me and my wife go to The Keg every couple months but the food was just not as good this time. Our garlic bread appetizer was way over cooked almost burnt. I always order The Keg burger and the portion was much smaller this time.

Our dinner this evening was fantastic! Truly, the Keg in Kingston never disappoints and I always look forward to coming for dinner whenever I’m home.

Having worked in the service industry at one point myself, I really have to give credit to Joel, our waiter. He was incredibly friendly and attentive, ensuring that my parents and I had a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. I hope the Keg realizes that waiters like him are a huge asset to the business. I also noticed that he recognized the table next to us as being repeat customers and welcomed them back. Clearly, he cares about his job and goes above and beyond. Again, having worked in the industry for a period of time, I’ve come to appreciate how much work and patience it takes to do this job and deal with such a wide array of demands and personalities, all while wearing a smile.

Overall we had a wonderful dining experience and, of course, would recommend The Keg to anyone visiting Kingston.

Cheers!

Romeo was our server and he was very funny as well as efficient. Our steaks were all done perfectly and the meals were all enjoyed equally. Birthday was being celebrated and a piece of Miners Pie came out with 4 forks for us to share. Was a total success although for us it is a fair drive. Another Keg in Kingston probably would do well.

Romeo was very good as our server. The food was great and enough to eat.
The iceberg lettuce more than met my expectations and the Prime Rib complete dinner was great. I would recommend the double baked potato. Just an overall great time and the complementary birthday slice was enough for the 3 of us. Very good slice.
Thanks.

The food was good but not GREAT. The twice baked potatoes weren't as tasty and my steak was overcooked slightly. I am sure it was due to the busy night? I was just surprised a bit - usually the entire meal it so spot on at the Keg.

I have been to the Keg several times over the years. That being said i have always enjoyed it. However the last 2 times I was there the steak was not cooked properly (first Time) and my spouses steak was nothing but grizzle. In the Kegs defense they did not charge us for This meal. The last time my Steak was very chewy and difficult to eat.

I have never been asked to leave because the restaurant needed the table. We were there less than 1.5 hrs. They offered us dessert menus but then the manager came over and said that they needed the table and that we could get dessert to go if we wanted. Never again!

We went to have a friend get together and we had the most amazing server by the name of Joel. We were all impressed with his knowledge, his friendliness and his attentiveness. He did not rush us through the meal and we went on purpose at 4:30 so we would have lots of time to talk before the restaurant got really busy. The food was good too, very consistent quality - you do not need to worry that you will have a bad meal so it balances out the cost.

We had a great dinner. The food was delicious, though my husband's steak was too rare. This wasn't a big problem, because shortly after we were served, the kitchen manager came out to make sure the food was to our liking. He brought the plate back to the kitchen, they fixed the steak and re-plated the whole thing with fresh food. The steak was perfect. I do wish the tables were a little further apart. We could hear some of the neighbour's conversation, and when getting up to leave, I felt that I was right in their face as I tried to make my way between our tables.

Any chance you can offer more than one vegetarian entree? Definitely need more variety in this day and age! Not everyone is a meat eater. Yes, it's a steakhouse, but don't let that limit your creativity when it comes to good food. (By the way, the cauliflower steak is a great idea, but the flavour combination of chickpeas and raisins with tomatoes is terrible.)
