My wife and I went here for dinner to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I chose The Keg because of my experience at other Keg locations but hadn't ever been to this location. I expected, and received, outstanding cooking and service. When taking our order, the waiter kneeled beside of each of us in-turn instead of looming over us as is normal. Between us, we had a sirloin steak, a fillet mignon ( with béarnaise sauce), and 2 lobster tails each. Plus a single glass of wine. After finding out about our anniversary celebration, the waiter brought us a really delicious, large slice of mocha ice cream cake for dessert, on the house. The bill, including a 20 % tip, was about $150.00. About what I expected and worth every penny ! A great restaurant for a special occasion.

Our only issue was our side dish was forgotten but we were comped for that, my steak was over cooked, I asked for medium and got med well but I didnt tell our server as we were so hungry . It still was delishious! The house level was to be 3xpected for the Keg, but one server was actually a bit too loud

Best Rib steak you'll ever have. Its large enough for 2 people (but I didn't share). We were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary and had a lovely evening. Will definitely return next time we are in Kingston.

While my meal eventually was good, my first steak was not cooked according to what I ordered. I received medium well although I requested medium rare which my waiter also stated I ordered. The Keg did comp my steak but I didn't get to eat until my husband was done his meal. It was not the best way to eat our anniversary dinner. While I acknowledge their attempts to rectify the situation, the Keg's reputation does not excuse the overcooked steak.

Our server, Brad, was just the right amount of attentive.

The restaurant was out of medium-rare prime rib, just medium available, so I had a filet mignon instead and it was delicious.

The meals overall were very good. Service excellent and our server was very knowledgeable. What was unfortunate is that I am a keto eater and try to choose those options. In my case the other night was the baseball steak with asparagus. It's clear that time is the winner in the preparation of the asparagus as there was many stalks that had not been broken below the woody line. Three of us had asparagus and all had the same opinion. I learned from a young age how to prep it for cooking. A simple bend and it breaks at the woody line. The experience of great flavour was cast aside for the appearance of equal stalk length. We were all forced to cut the bottom off to avoid the un-edible woody portion. While time is a serious commodity in a busy restaurant, so is proper prep for a great food experience. On this point it failed. We'll still be back, but I will not order the asparagus. PS My wife makes the best roasted asparagus on the planet. Perfect from end to end that burst with the flavour of the asparagus and a light grating of cheese and seasoning. The sides are the only issue that seems to be an issue on our visits. Please put the same thought into those as you do the mains and you'll be unstoppable.
Regards,
Joe

Very nice !!! got to say thou we never had a bad experience at any keg restaurants in Ontario. Very attentive by all staff....😁👍
Got to say that our waiter didn’t look to impressed by the tip we had left him.
We had our gift cards that our daughter gave us for our 44th wedding anniversary , he never acknowledged them or give me time to tell we were celebrating our anniversary, if it wasn’t for the gift cards we couldn’t of afford to pay $108.00 for a meal...

To be honest, I would pick a place like aqua terra or hys steakhouse before Keg. I find the cooks can never cook a steak as ordered, I order medium and get a medium rare... not excuse for this at a steakhouse. I just don’t think the chefs/cooks are experienced enough. Large place that becomes very loud if you’re looking for an intimate dining experience. The server was energetic, and professional. All because a steak is not cooked right, I had to wait for my food to come back while my husband ate. For the $$$ , this should never happen. If the food came out as ordered, and orders weren’t forgotten (ordered wine and never got it but was on my bill) , I would come back but this doesn’t seem to change.

Drinks took forever to arrive.
Portions seem smaller then before
It was very noisy
My twice baked potato was burnt
A lot of money for what we got
My biggest complaint though is that our salads came out as we were having our apps and then our dinner can out as we were having our salads. So we felt very rushed to finish our food and the table was full of plates

I so wanted to enjoy my prime rib, but the noise, cold air conditioning and cave-like atmosphere made it all but impossible. An expensive night for a mediocre experience. I would have loved to have more than meat and potatoes on my plate too -- would it hurt the Keg to add a few other vegetables without a surcharge?

The service was very good but the restaurant was so noisy that people were yelling to be heard. Certainly not a relaxing experience. My husband and I both ordered ribs and they were falling off the bone and dry. The price does not reflect the quality of our meal, we were celebrating my birthday. We left with disappointment.
