Excellent food. Great service. My prime rib was not medium rare but mention to our server and was quickly returned with the right temperature. Celebrated my wife birthday and brought out a nice mid pie desert.

I regularly visit Keg restaurants but this was my first time at the one in Whistler. It will also be my last.

Our server was good but the hostess as well as the food runner were rude. The food runner rolled her eyes at me when I asked for butter for my baked potato.

I had the prime rib. I always have the prime rib when I go to the Keg. I ordered it rare as I always do. I’m always told medium rare is the rarest they can do and I’m okay with that. This time the server didn’t say that. She said okay to the rare order, I was pleasantly surprised. Until the steak came out. It was medium to medium well and tasted more like roast beef than prime rib. I couldn’t finish it. There was nothing enjoyable about the steak. I had the rest boxed up to bring home to my dog. He’ll love it.

My girlfriend had the shrimp and steak and enjoyed it but was surprised with how much gristle was in the steak.

At the end of the meal we were both regretful that we hadn’t gone to the more expensive steak house down the road.

This was the first time I'd been to the Keg in Whistler, where my steak was actually cooked correctly, so big improvement!

This location is 15-25% more expensive than other locations. I understand it's a resort, but no need to gouge. Steak Oscar is $38 in Vancouver, yet $48 in Whistler.

The food was good, the service was definitely lower than Vancouver, and the location is obviously excellent. Price point is inflated so it's a no for me.

Our anniversary dinner. We both had the New York steak special. Steaks were cooked just like we like them. Lots of well prepared and presented fall vegetables (it was Thanksgiving weekend). Our asparagus was rather oily and quite small. When we mentioned it to our server a full plate of large asparagus spears was presented in just a few minutes. Great service. We also received a complimentary Billy Miner pie. We have never been more pleased. Hope to see you soon!

Food was very good. Table of four and two had the prime rib which they really enjoyed. I had the salmon which was also very tasty. Brussel sprout side was a bit under cooked and hard but the baked potato was nice. Cocktails were all good but unfortunately came after we’d been seated for 40 mins. Server was very nice but seemed a bit flustered when we first arrived, and waiting 40 mins for our drinks was a bit much. All in all, a good experience that we come to expect from the Keg!

Exactly what I expected, excellent. Had the baseball cut, melt in your mouth. Server was polite, friendly, great sense of humor. Always good selection of wine, generous pour. The place is slightly dated, although has the look and feel of the great old steak houses, dark woods etc. you will not find a better steak at Whistler BC.

We go to the keg usually once a year in either Langley or Abbotsford. Knowing the prices we just ordered our usual filet mignon classic without checking the price. When the bill came the filet mignon was $51.00 each. We are used to quite a bit less than that.
I don't see how I get better value for my money in Whistler than I do in Abbotsford.

Hi Gerry, Thank you for your review. I can understand your point and the question has been asked in the past. The simple reason is that the cost of living is much higher in Whistler in all sectors (restaurants, liquor stores, groceries, gas, rent and so forth). That said, we are launching a great fall prix-fixe menu in the next couple of weeks and the value is amazing, so hopefully you have an opportunity to return for that. Kind regards, The Keg Team

The waitress was so very quiet, we couldn’t hear what she was saying. She likely couldn’t hear us either because we ordered steaks with no mushrooms, which came with mushrooms on top. I ordered blueberry lemonade, and she brought a blueberry fizz instead. My husband ordered Asiago rice, and got mushroom rice pilaf.
On top of all that, the restaurant was dirty, the tips of the booths had visible layers of dust on them.
Not worth the money, not worth the wait.

Kinda special occasion and unsure why you ask if that info is not passed on or acted upon. Our server was an oder gentleman, probably originally from Ireland and he was a consummate professional.
