We have used the Keg as a family go to restaurant for many years particularly because of its gluten free menu. Last night was very disappointing. The food was barely warm, the prime rib was well beyond a medium cook and frankly tasteless. The bill...worked out to over $85 a person. Not worth 10% of that. We eon’t be back…More

Had one of the worst meals I have ever had at this location. Prime rib was dangerously raw, baked potato was ice cold, too cold to even melt the butter ball in it, deep fried onions were cold and greasy. Three items on plate and...every one was crap. You may like the Keg but avoid this one! Other patrons complaining about their meals as we were waiting for ours, was our last night there and just wanted a nice meal, this was memorable but in a bad, bad way. This is not so much a review but more of a warning, many other good places to eat in downtown Victoria, just walk on by.More

We looked at what was on offer in Victoria for New Years Eve 2023 before deciding to go to The Keg. We were pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. The Keg over delivered! Great service, food, wine and dessert. The three of us shared a...Caesar salad, then enjoyed two steaks and a grilled salmon before finishing with the best chocolate cake! The wine by the glass, I think it was a merlot, was really, really good. Thanks to everyone at the Keg for making our new years eve fantastic! Happy New Year to you.More

We haven't been to the Keg in years and were so looking forward to a good prime rib dinner. Sadly disappointed. The prime rib had NO flavour neither did the my twice backed potato HOWEVER the beets were yummy. Server mixed up our drink order...but they were tasty. Place was filthy. The soles of our shoes were covered in grease.More

I had the rib steak which was probably the best steak I’ve ever had! It was cooked to perfection and very tender and tasty. If you’re going to order it you had better be hungry because there was enough food on my plate for two...people easily. I will definitely be going back againMore

We took our family out for my husband's birthday. It was incredible, the waitress was great, making sure she got all of our orders right. One small slip up for our son who has allergies. But it was soon corrected and because of the mistake,...his meal was free. We have always had good meals at the Fort street Keg.More

Visiting from Vancouver. Been to many kegs but this one was not the best. Service was ok, food was not great. Ordered the special steak with crab and lobster topping. It arrived on a plate and potato and veggies were like leather. Steak was good...but you would be hard pressed to find lobster or crab in the sauce poured on the steak. The cook shd never have sent a meal to a customer like that and the server definitely should not have brought it to the table. Take some pride !! For the price, I would say not worth it. Will not be backMore

We had a wonderful dining experience. Dan was phenomenal, he was top-notch! Allergy issue was addressed and taken care of, and we enjoyed an absolutely wonderful evening dining with relatives. The food was sssoooo good, the service was excellent, everything was perfect, Thank you Dan...for taking such good care of us, and making our evening extra special. Would highly recommend, and will definitely return. I made a reservation through OpenTable, and had made a couple of requests on that reservation, both of which were accommodated. Thank you to Dan and The Keg and the rest of the team.More

From the moment we arrived we were looked after. Our waitperson Dean was great, the food was delicious as were the drinks! We went for my birthday, they deducted my dessert from the bill. I used gift cards to pay & didn’t look at the...bill until the next day; it didn’t make sense so I left a message online & a team member called me & explained (to my embarrassment) that one of my gift cards wasn’t full (we must have used part of it during a previous visit). I’m very impressed at their eagerness to achieve customer satisfaction - we LOVE The Keg, we will be back!More

EXCELLENT all around! Service was wonderful. We were a party of 4, had a table with a view of the Harbour which was lovely. One had a teriyaki steak which he said was cooked to perfection. 3 of us had the prime rib and it...was melt in your mouth. Yes the prices are high, but on this visit we figured the price was definitely worth it!More

We were in Victoria for a day and came by the Keg steak restaurant and figured this looks like a good place to have dinner. On our initial impression the menu seemed very good. We started with some wine and i can say the wines...we ordered where impeccable. Unfortunately though, we couldn’t say the same regarding the food. The waitress asked if we wanted to start with some bread and butter, which we liked, but then she never actually brought the bread. While I can vouch for the steak I ordered, almost all complementary items were disastereous. The seasonal vegetables were undercooked and still quite hard, the fries were only slightly warm (and ofcourse cold once you had a few fries) and undercooked as well. Which was a shame as we did like the steak. The desert was quite good as well, nothing to blame on that part. Only, while we were still eating our desert, the waitress suddenly brings a folded paper with the bill and brushes it off with “whenever your ready”. We weren’t even done with desert and tbh, we still wanted to order something else. A few moments later, while we are still finishing up she stands at our table with the payment register. And another moment later, while I go to the washroom (my girldfriend still at the table), she just collects our glasses while we still have to finish them. In all honesty, I’ve never felt so unwelcome at a restaurant. This might not be average experience one has at this restaurant, at least I hope not, but for us this really was a bad experience. The way she just collected everything in the end, I regret even given a tip. I hope this was a one time experience.More
