Most Keg restaurants are the same and you know what you are getting. I understand that this is Banff and it is a tourist spot but the prices compared to other Keg's are at least 25% higher. Our server was busy and it seemed they were understaffed. The food as always was very good and cooked properly and that would... More

In beautiful downtown Banff Alberta in the Canadian Rockies . We have been spending a week camping there every year for many years . Our traditional anniversary dinner at the keg never disappoints . Great staff , reasonable prices and always great food .

Food was good, place was very busy, atmosphere was festive and our expectations were high. Unfortunately our server was not very helpful, she was easily confused, had to have the manager out at one point. A member of our party requires food to be blended (I always travel with my portable blender), server didn't know if this could be done... More

Good service. Able to make reservation. Decent kids menu. Typical steak house. Reasonable good value. Keg classics include salad and one side for about $40. Kids choices include reasonable healthy choices, drink and ice cream for about $12. Warm bread was tasty....

Visited for evening meal and poor service, with main course slapped on table by disinterested staff before starter cleared away and extras wrong. Bone in rib not of best quality and portions small by Canadian standards. Yes, it's not overly expensive, but you can get much better value for your dollar elsewhere locally.

This location was awesome. Walking distance to our hotel and the service and food were great. We were able to make reservations on a Friday afternoon for Friday evening which was a huge plus. Steak Oscar was to die for!!

Me and my other half were travelling around Canada, and whilst staying in Banff for a few nights, we popped in here as my other half really fancied some steak. I really enjoyed my meal, I had the grilled salmon and it was lovely. And my other half enjoyed his too. We also got dessert and it was HUGE! Food... More

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!
