The Keg Steakhouse + Bar - Oshawa
This is not a review - it is just a question about why you ask on booking whether it is for a special occasion or not - I answered that it was our 48th Anniversary & that was ignored on all fronts.
First time at the new one, we'll definately be back
Not a fan of the open air patio and bar. Seems top cafeteria like. Specifically asked to be seated in dining room to avoid that Unfortunately our table was in the row on the edge of dining room and outdoor patio so we still had the sun and bugs
Thoroughly enjoyed our night out at the Keg. The waitress was attentive, without being intrusive.
Food was prepared to our liking, and as always, consistent in presentation and taste.
Considered good value for the money.
We are huge fans of The Keg restaurants. And we visit many times a year. We were very excited to try out the new Keg in Oshawa as we live nearby. Beautiful restaurant and patio! We made a reservation for 7:30 for our 10th wedding anniversary and requested a booth. We arrived at 6:30 with hopes to sit on the new patio and have a pre dinner drink. We had to wait for a patio seat which is fine. My husband ordered coors light draft beer but they were out of it. We finally got on the patio at 7:10 but they mixed up our dinner reservation for 7:30. We finally got taken to a table at 8 pm. When we arrived we were seated at a regular table which we werent happy about especially after waiting so long. They found a small booth for us which was in a main thruway. But we at least had a booth. The servers and staff were excellent all around as they usually are. I ordered steak and my husband ordered salmon. We were served in a timely manner. The salmon was excellent however they had run out of brussel sprouts which is my husbands favourite part of the meal. My steak was good but not up to the Keg standard I usually get. Quite a bit of grizzle through it. I didn’t complain because we felt we had already asked for a different table and the staff were so apologetic. So overall the dinner was just ok, ambiance is very nice, staff were amazing. We will return and hope that next time they have food and drinks well stocked and the steak is better
Nicely renovated . Amazing service, amazing food, amazing drinks. The keg is always astounding.
The food was good but the crowd of people who were trying to dine there was overwhelming. We made reservations a week early, arrived on time, and still had to wait. Our table felt like it was almost in the lobby. Where we sat there was zero ambience, only lots of noise, commotion, and people walking by. This turned a special occasion into a less than ordinary experience.
Although the food was good and the waitress did a good job, the overall experience left me feeling like I had received very little value for the money we spent.
We waited for almost an hour for our food which was unacceptable. The manager acknowledged this when he came with our plates and said it would be reflected on the bill. However there was nothing on our bill to suggest this. There was nothing discounted and nothing taken off the bill. That was a slap in the face as he was the one suggesting it. We did not speak up at the time as we just wanted to leave. It was noisy way to noisy couldn't even carry on a conversation at our table. I appreciate you needed to expand but at what expense? Based on that visit it will be a very long time before I even think of returning
The new Keg in Oshawa is stunning as well as very welcoming by its ambiance and it’s amazing staff. Our waitress Breann was superb and would totally like to have her again when we go back.
All in all an amazing date night for my wife and I.
You have to experience it for yourself, but it is so worth it.
We had a very nice Birthday dinner. The only issue my husband had was with the sirloin. He is not a fan but he thought the special with the lobster only came with the sirloin. I am not sure. They mentioned it was marinaded, he thought that might change the texture. It did not. He is more of a rib eye guy. I would say that was the only issue. We will try another cut another time.
Celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary. Very disappointed in my meal. I had the bacon wrapped chicken. Did not taste or see any Asiago cheese. The chicken was bland and rubbery. I equated it with the chicken I ate in Cuba. Coleslaw was also horrible and dry. I regret my decision to go there to celebrate. I would have had a nicer dinner at Milestones. I expected better quality and food from The Keg for the price. Server was lovely and attentive. I mentioned my disappointment in the chicken at the end of my meal to pass along. When I made a reservation at 4:00pm for a special occasion, would have preferred a nicer table or booth with some ambiance but was plunked at that back at a table too closely spaced to others. Unfortunately, I would not choose The Keg again.
Tables are way too close together - no privacy. The waitress could back off a little, it is possible to check on guests too much.
The place was a little bit dark but the service was on point. They were very accommodating for my baby and my family I would definitely go back!
The food was great, but the restaurant was too crowded. There was no privacy at all.
We had a wonderful time. The food was amazing and the presentation was stunning. Our server did an exceptional job of making sure we were well taken care of. Will be back again soon
Burger was just ok. It wasn't as tasty as I hoped. My wife's prime rib was the same, just ok ~ a little on the tough side.
Great new restaurant, love how I am able to reserve a table!
Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait almost fifteen minutes before being seated. Once there, we did have very good, attentive service. We will definitely be returning. We are there every year for our wedding anniversary. This was our fifty-third.
Overall I was very dissapointed with our Keg experiance. We booked our reservation for our 27th wedding anniversary on july 17 for august 1 and upon arrival had to wait 15 minutes past our 5:30 time. We sat in the main dining room and the amount of flies and fruit flies was disgusting, iy was as if we were sitting outside. I love the lobster gratinee during lobster summer and was ectremely dissappointed as it tasted way over cooked and nothing like last year. This was our first vist to the new keg in Oshawa and I have to say i will not be hurrying back any time soon. Thanks.
Restaurant was beautiful. Our server was good but not excellent like we typically experience at the Keg
My steak was more tender than anything I have ever been served in the past. I had a small top sirloin and it was as tender as a filet mignon. Our server was excellent. She was friendly and competent. I don't care for red peppers so she served fresh asparagus instead. This is our favorite restaurant. We will continue to go back there many times.
New restaurant has a nice ambiance but the noise level was very high which was a little annoying.
A little crowded
The restaurant is too dark. The tables are propped up on random things to keep them level, so the table was on a 15 degree tilt. Food was meh. There are better options for the money.
The new Keg is very nice and very busy. I was pleased that the busyness did not hamper our service. Foo great as usual.
Tara, our server, was lovely and very patient while we considered our calorie intake. Wonderful meal!
We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with our family on Wednesday evening at the Keg in Oshawa. Our overall experience was amazing. The food was prepared exactly how we ordered and our server, Erin, was fantastic. Her ability to understand what her guests need along with her personable interactions, made our night that much more special for our entire family. Thank you Erin...we hope to see you again soon.
We arrived very early for our reservation and we were prepared to wait for our time slot, we were seated early👍.
Our waitress Tara was awesome... we really enjoyed our meal.
My husband is Diabetic and needs to know how many carbohydrates he has consumed to be able to calculate his insulin dose, Tara & Beth were able to find the carbohydrate count for our meals which was awesome!
THANKS FOR THE AWESOME SERVICE 😎😎
The new Keg restaurant is gorgeous!!!
We will definitely be coming back!
The service was great as usual, very friendly staff. Food was perfect. The new building is gorgeous. It was super busy but we had a reservation.
Great dinner to celebrate 2 birthdays! Renovations look amazing! It was nice to see The Keg getting a long overdue update! We sat beside a very very loud table which made our experience less enjoyable but the food was good as always! We will be back.
It was great to go to the new Keg building. Service and food were both amazing! The patio is incredible:) Way better than the previous one. We will be back for sure!
Great night out. New renovation made a big difference. Service was excellent.
My girlfriend and I decided to come by since the new location just opened and we haven't had da good date night in a while. We had a reservation for 715 on Sunday. We arrived at 705 and checked in. While we were waiting we heard that walk-in would take 60-75 mins and we're thankful we reserved a table. We ended up being seated just before 730 after waiting which was a little inconvenient but it was busy so we didn't mind. We were seated in the back left by the fireplace, the space was nice but the odd shaped table beside us was a bit of an eye sore. Kevin and Erin took care of us that night and we're very friendly, helpful, and kind. Kevin took our drink orders and helped us for the first half of the meal. In addition he kept us informed of drink and food times throughout our wait. Erin took our entreé and dessert order and answered any questions we had with good knowledge. At the end of our meal she brought my girlfriend's leftovers out in the lid of a container with tin foil on top. She apologized for it and told us they ran out of containers. We are ways going people so we had a good laugh with her and Kevin about it. We then chatted for a few minutes after paying the bill which has never happened to us at any other restaurant. We are young people and for once in our dining experience we were treated fairly, with respect and dignity, and like any other customers, it was phenomenal. Kevin and Erin were amazing and they deserve to know. Thanks for the awesome experience, we will be back!
Service was very good. Great new location. Outdoor patio looks great.
Absolutely love the new Keg Oshawa. It’s a nice upgrade. Will be back for sure and might even go for a night to just have apps/drinks out on that beautiful new patio area.
Good food as usual and the booths are much roomier and more comfortable since the Reno.
The new building is fantastic modern and the outdoor patio is unique and very modern
I have been going to the Keg for years and found we have never been disappointed
Great job done by all
Had another great meal at The Keg. My steak which was filet mignon was perfect. Always a great meal whenever I go. Never noisy like some other places. No too bright and not too dark. Prices are what you expect for the meals that show up.
