We went to The Keg in Nanaimo for a special occasion dinner and our meal was excellent - exactly as I expect from The Keg. We went on a Monday evening and the staff and service were fantastic, we sat in a booth by the fireplace. Our glasses never went empty and the food was timely, hot and delicious; we... More

We thought we would have a nice night out on the town , so we decided to go to the Keg as we were craving steak, We got there and the server we had was good but I bit slow to take our order. We both ordered a steak medium rare and it came out well done. The meat was... More

We had not been to the Keg in some time but a gift certificate prompted us to pay a visit. From the moment we arrived we were seated in front of the fireplace and looked after superbly. Our waitress was charming and attentive. The meal was excellent. The steak was hot and would melt in your mouth. The roast beef... More

The Kegs menu is not that extensive, but I feel quite expensive. The beef was really quite good as were the accompanying vegetables. The starter salad was huge, and for me could have done two people. I have in the past found the restaurant very noisy, not so this last time, I think because we ate earlier and they weren't... More

It's been years since we've been to The Keg and the first time we've been to The Keg in Nanaimo, BC. Our server Alisa (?) was very attentive and bubbly. Our meal was done to perfection, just like I remember from years ago. We will certainly be going back regularly.

We were staying downtown Nanaimo so it seemed like a logical choice to walk to the Keg. Seated promptly and our waitress didnt take long to take our order, very very noisy atmosphere which I guess for some people is okay but it was hard to talk to my husband. Our starter came within 10 to 15 minutes. They were... More

The server touched at our table three times "That was it". Asked for steak sauce; never came. My steak was under cooked, tasted great after it came back. It was nice otherwise. (Lobster was chewy and over cooked) The quality of service and food was average, comparable to a Red Lobster or Applebee's lower end steak and fish house. Way... More

We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door, seated in a comfy booth, given menus & drinks very quickly :) Our server was very friendly & checked in with us enough times to ensure that we had everything we needed to complete our dinner. Our starter was amazing, our dinners were hot and tasty & the dessert... More

You can't beat the Keg for Prime Rib. The roast was done just as promised, medium rare. The side dishes including the vegetables were prepared with care. The caesar salad was crispy and lettuce cut properly. The wine list, even for by-the-glass was quite extensive. Our server was Lane, a young women who was very professional and friendly. Prompt and... More
