The Keg Steakhouse + Bar has been around since 1971 and now has locations all across Canada and select states. They specialize in tender, juicy steaks, slow roasted prime rib, shellfish, and desserts.
M and I go to The Keg to celebrate all our anniversaries. On this particular day, it was our 1 year wedding anniversary, so as per all our special traditions, we come to the Keg to have a steak. It’s a chill environment to just enjoy our company together, chow down on steak and have a few drinks.
Our server was quite nice and asked us if we were celebrating a special occasion. We weren’t dressed up fancy, but yes, we were celebrating our anniversary. Of all the times we’ve dined at The Keg on our dating anniversaries, this was the first time anyone has asked!
The waiter said because we were celebrating such a grand moment, we would be getting a Billy Miner Pie on the house, so we should save room for it.
Their menu is pretty standard, but prices are slightly higher. I would say about $2 more from what I noticed.
We found a smaller menu on the side of the table and there’s more items! The prime rib burger sounds pretty good.
Heineken (Small $6.50) was a nice choice in size since I didn’t want too much beer.
Pepsi and Amaretto ($6.50) arrived at the table in 2 separate containers.
M felt so sophisticated mixing the two together. Made him feel like a sir.
Complimentary bread arrived at the table like usual with whipped butter.
Prime Rib (10oz – $27) is aged for extra flavour and tenderness, rubbed with their unique blend of spices and slow roasted. It is hand-carved and served with horseradish and red wine herb jus. M chose to have mixed vegetables as his side. It tasted good but it did have a fair bit of gristle.
Filet Mignon (7oz – $34) has the tenderloin wrapped in applewood smoked bacon and served with Bernaise sauce. The filet mignon is tender and so smooth. Once you have this, you can’t go back to any other cuts.
For my accompaniment, I had mixed vegetables.
Billy Miner Pie ($9) has mocha ice cream on a chocolate crust with hot fudge, caramel and almonds. Because it was our anniversary, this dessert was on the house. Very special touch from The Keg!
The pie was delicious, but it was pretty hard to finish with just 2 people. It’s a big slice of pie.
Overall, it was a great experience at the new Downtown location at Alberni above UrbanFare. After all our anniversaries spent at a Keg, we still like it.
