The keg has a nice menu for those that are not too hungry or are hungry. We split the shrimp cocktail. You get 5 nice sized shirmp. I like the ahi tuna tacos so much, I ordered them again as I had them a couple nights ago at the Keg location at the Caribou Lodge in town. My husband opted... More

The leather seats in the booths had large tears and gapping holes. The server was just plain rude. The more we tried to be extra nice to her, the more rude she got. The filet mignon was grisle-ly, hard, and tough to chew. And, it was not cooked as ordered. The server could care less.

Came here with a friend, our server (can't remember his name, he said he'd worked there 4 years) was so friendly and welcoming, really helpful with questions regarding the menu. The food was amazing, our sirloin steaks were cooked beautifully, the best steak I've had in a long time! Next time I'm in Banff I will return!

What can I say? It's The Keg. This one lives up to the name. Service was great, food was outstanding. All served in a timely manner. Our group wanted for nothing.

We always enjoy the Lobster Tail at the Keg. It was our first time at the Keg - downtown and it did not disappoint. I just wish they would offer a little more veggies with it. We had green beens and they were undercooked!!

The Keg was attached to hotel so after a hard day out it was an easy option but what a great meal we had, the steaks were yummy & service fab.

We were a party of twelve with 6 pm dinner reservations that were honored upon our arrival. We ordered different menu items and all were delicious and very well prepared. Ryan, our server, was professional, helpful and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the prime rib dinner special and my husband loved his full rack of BBQ ribs. The salads were delicious as... More

There's just something about this Keg I don't like. I don't know. In my opinion it just seems tight and depressing. The Keg as you're entering the town is much nice. Service here when we went was mediocre. The food was as other Kegs. I mean it's certainly a fine place to dine but something just felt off to me.

Our tour guides suggested the Keg Steakhouse. There were 12 of us and we were seated promptly. The menu has a variety of items, but most of us ordered steak. My NY Strip was delicious and I would order it again. The porterhouse was huge and tasty. The steaks were cooked as requested. The service was professional and accommodating. Our... More
