My new favorite place!!! – My girlfriend and I recently had a great dinner at the Keg. We were immediately sat and had a great time from beginning to end. Our server was very helpful and kind. We asked to speak to a manager, just to say keep up the good work and he bought one of our appetizers for us. Even though we only called him over to let him know job well done, it is cool that they appreciated the kind words. As for value, you can't beat this place for a downtown steakhouse. We had three bar drinks, two apps, split a salad, had a filet and prime rib and split a dessert and our bill still wasn't at $100.00. Talk about being worth the price!!! After we left our server a 30% tip we were again thanked for our patronage on our way out by the hostess staff. What an incredible restaurant. I have already made plans to have dinner here for one of my best friends bachelor party I highly recommend this place and I will keep going back!!!
Gotta Have the Bleu Cheese Filet – This is my favorite restaurant! The food is amazing and I highly recommend the bleu cheese/garlic filet. It is wonderful! I always end up eating way too much there. If I could make one request, I would ask that they include a few more non-seafood appetizers on the menu (I'm allergic) but I would go back over and over again. It also has a good location, so it is perfect for taking the lightrail downtown for a night of fun!
Awesome Steak – Great place to eat. Food is amazing, staff is very knowledgeable and fun. Place is very cool because it has a separate lounge that is very relaxed and great for just hanging out. Or you can head over to the dining room that is very quite and cozy but not stuffy. The food is a great value 22.00 for a great cut of prime rib, some of the best i have ever had. Check it out if you get the chance. Great place to stop in before a rockies game. Also great happy hour, get the orange slice martini its amazing.
Overcooked, tough steak was just the beginning... – My husband and I went for dinner last night and it was our second time visiting The Keg. Our first trip was pretty good but last night was awful. I ordered the New York Classic medium-rare and my steak was well done and very tough - almost completely gray inside. My husband ordered prime rib, which was decent, but not stellar by any stretch. Unfortunately, the waitress NEVER came back to see how we were, so I wasn't able to tell her. After dinner, our coffee was undrinkable, watery, worse-than-the-worst-diner-coffee and when we complained, they made a fresh carafe of the same terrible coffee. Our dessert, some sort of mocha ice cream pie, had freezer burn, but since we never saw the waitress after she delivered it we weren't able to tell her that either. When the waitress finally brought our check, my husband gave her his card BEFORE she walked away, but it still took over 15 minutes for her to bring it back for a signature. I eventually had to ask someone else to get it for us. Overall, the food was mediocre, the coffee horrendous and the service even worse. Our waitress would disappear for VERY long stretches and we were in a corner where few other waitstaff passed. Although we were seated immediately, ordered our drinks and food right away and did not have appetizers, it took us over 2 hours to have dinner, coffee and dessert and get out of there. We had been so excited to find a good, well-priced steakhouse nearby, but now we are not sure we'll ever go back.
Amazing staff, Great steaks, Awesome ambiance – As far as stuffy, snobby, over priced steakhouses go, this is clearly not one of them. The menu has both traditional and not-so-traditional entrees and appetizers (got to try the keg sliders). In a cow town, a steak is a steak, but not all steakhouses are the same. The staff is young, hip, and trendy, and the music, though slightly louder than in most places is more club-esque than department store elevator. The bar is beautiful and a great place to enjoy a less formal dinner or lunch. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the wine list impecable, the cocktails freshly squezed and invigorating. All in all, my favorite place to entertain friends, family, and business associates. Gets packed before and after Rockies games since is it a block away from Coors stadium.
GREAT STEAKS!!! Great prices. Beats Ruth's Chris, The Palm, or Morton's unless you're just a snob! – GREAT STEAKS!!!!! In my opinion, the 16oz Ribeye is every bit as good as Ruth's Chris or the Palm, and at a better price (Under $30) especially considering it comes with a spud and mushrooms. More value for the money here!!
The bluecheese filet is also fabulous, (again, under $30.)
The rest of the menu looks great too. Oh, and it's not just premium steaks here, you can find surf and turf (under $30), or a nice sirloin (for around $20).
I tell everyone about this place. What's not to love. I've never had a bad meal or experience here.
If you want to spend a lot more, then go ahead to Ruth's or the Capital Grille, or the Palm. I wouldn't pay $1 for a steak at Morton's.
If Ribeye is your cut, then the Keg is your place.
Not worth the money – We went with a group of friends recently. We were all disappointed. We had reservations. They seated us in a part of the restaurant where it was obvious there was not going to be a server coming by very often. We actually had to get up three times to get someone to come and take a drink order. Once to take a steak back because it was so over cooked you couldn't cut it with a knife. Then the last time to get a check. I was very disappointed. For the money I think there are plenty of other steak houses in Denver to consider first.
Surprisingly poor prime rib – If you look superficially at The Keg it looks like an upscale high-quality restaraunt. Dark woods, leather seats, nice lighting, professional-looking staff, etc.
I recently ordered a prime rib dinner and they gave me the end cut. I ordered a medium prime rib, and the end is known to be medium-well or even well. That cut also does not have the outer layer of marbled meat that a middle-cut has. It isn't a very good cut. The manager (who we chatted with at the entrance, and he was very nice) stopped by and asked me how my dinner was and I told him that I wasn't happy with my steak. He said he'd take care of it. He came back with a new plate and the steak that was on it was genuinelyl bizzarre - it looked pale-pink, was covered in clear juices, and looked to me like it was cooked in a hurry (maybe because they ran out of prime rib?). I saw another steak just like it go by on it's way to another table. Well needless to say I wasn't happy but I wasn't going to send back two steaks, and the manager and server only asked about me to be polite (they didn't actually seem to care if I was happy).
After that I started to look around (we were in front of the kitchen) and began noticing that the staff was all very young, and the people working in the back of the kitchen sure didn't seem like experts. Quite a few of the servers were very young as well.
I now think that The Keg is the Olive Garden or Cheesecake Factory of steakhouses. I get a better prime rib at Texas Roadhouse (and it's a lot cheaper). I won't be in a hurry to go back to The Ket, but if I do I'll be sure to order a New York strip (which my GF had and I tried: it was good) instead of prime rib.
Best Orange Martini – Great for late dinning, or after a base ball game, the food is good, but what really impressed me was their fresh and delicious orange martini.
Great Downtown Location and Fair Prices – After my recent disappointment with The Broker I was very pleased to find that Denver Dining can still be both affordable and offer great service. Surf and Turf for $35 was a great value. Not the best tasting steak in town and the lobster was just average but then again for $35 you cant go wrong.
