The portions were huge, and the steak deal - where you get a salad to start etc - was good. The steak was a little undercooked, but still very tasty. I had the rack of ribs which were great. Atmosphere is pretty basic, and the toilets are a very long way from the restaurant but other than that it was... More

Ate on two occasions: once in the restaurant and once in the bar. Our memory of this Keg was the upstairs restaurant was the more intimate. On these two occasions we visited, the opposite was true and certainly while the restaurant was the more quiet of the two. However, service in both is consistently high and the steak is faultless....

We stopped here for a nice dinner to top off our winter getaway weekend. We are Keg regulars, typically visiting a few different ones in Calgary. Literally, EVERY time we visit one in Calgary, my steak is cooked wrong. Either raw, or extremely well done. I usually get my steak cooked medium. The Banff Downtown location actually cooked it right!... More

The steak and shrimp were just delicious. This is the second time I have ordered it and I will continue. I find the steak meals a little so large and pricey so I tend to order this plate. The service was great and fast.

My husband and I really enjoyed dinner at The Keg. There is a very nice atmosphere and the service was great and very friendly. We both had steaks (fillet mignon and New York strip) and the Chicago style cooking was perfect. Reasonable price for a nice bottle of Italian red wine.

We visited the Keg, as our final dinner at Banff. We were waited by Juan and he made the evening perfect. We had the scallops with bacon for starters and the New York striploin / Baseball Top Sirloin for main courses. It was all tasty and coocked to perfection. For dessert we had a very excellent Mocha Ice called Billy... More

I am not sure why The Keg is steadily on the decline no matter what location I go too. The prices seem to be increasing, however the quality is decreasing! This last visit was the straw that broke the camels back! The Top-Sirloin I ordered was super tough, and raw! I ordered Medium, and expected the cut to be tender,... More

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
