Fantastic! You can never go wrong with the Keg Steakhouse, it's a fail safe for good food and good times. Had a great steak and a super huge shrimp cocktail to start. You gotta eat here!

My husband and i decided to try the Keg in Niagara falls. It had been quite awhile since we had been to a Keg. Wow the food and service was awesome. We had bacon wrapped scallops that were delicious! Our entrees of steak and lobster were delicious as well....cooked to perfection.

went for a business dinner the server was ok. I think for fine dinning it could have been more attentive. The steaks were amazing the wine was even better and the dessert was just the right size if you want a bit of sweet at the end

The "Baseball" steak dinner that I had was fabulous. Our server was very good: experienced, attentive, and prompt. The atmosphere was conducive to conversation.

I have always loved the Keg for their steaks I was totally disappointed with our dinner. The only thing that was worth the money was the Scallops and Bacon

Service and food was very bad. They took very long time to take our order. Food came out promptly. They missed items we ordered. My prime rib was 90% all fat. Mediocre food at high prices is what you get. There are so many better restaurants in Hamilton.

This restaurant is a good place for a special outing. The food is great but note that it is expensive.
