Solid choice for steak
April 14, 2014

The Keg does steak, and it has basically perfected it. They know steak. Unfussy atmosphere, casual vibe. If you want a steak in a more upscale setting, try Cut.

always a great place to grab a meal
April 05, 2014

Walked in Friday night (usually you have to wait). Ordered a couple of beers and two "classic" steak combos. The combos come with salad and bread-we opted for the caeser salad and it was delicious. Staff was very friendly, washrooms clean, and service great. Having been to the Keg over many years, I think it may be time for new... more

The service here was great compared to other Keg Steakhouses I have eaten at. I had the Goat Cheese and Pecan Striploin. It was delicious, although a bit overcooked.

Warm welcome, pleasant and accommodating wait staff, and they have the knack of cooking steak exactly as asked for, even with different requests at the same table the meat came cooked just as asked for and with all the side dishes piping hot.

Baseball steak?....Superb
January 18, 2014

Travelled to Halifax on business in December 13 ate here once. I ordered the baseball steak with the double potatoes, the steak is prime fillet and cooked to perfection. Service is welcoming and very good indeed. If I return to Halifax a I will dine here again.

Great food and service
January 09, 2014

You can immediately tell that this is one of the older Kegs in the chain - very clean but also showing some signs of age in terms of its decor. Steaks, drinks, and appetizers were all quite good. Drinks were also prepared well.

Very Good Slow-Roasted Prime Rib

This comfortable dining room knows its red meat!
Excellent service, great steaks, sides and prime rib roasted to perfection ...

Although always packed, which is a testament to the power of location, this is a tired out mess of a restaurant. Other locations in the chain have proven to be very good. Here in Halifax, look out. In a word? Shabby.

Great Food and Service

Went out for a special night as my daughter is heading to university. Our food was cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable. We went closer to 5 pm when it was not so crowded. I was a little disappointed that the prime rib lacked a taste of the spices throughout but that was my only complaint.
