Best steakhouse in downtown! – The Keg is by far my favorite restaurant downtown. We always get a table with or without a reservation. Never had one issue with the food. My husband and I do have to laugh though because every time we go there we tend to sit next to the "first time" couple who are offered a free shrimp cocktail (and sometimes they don't eat it) when being welcomed for the first time. We never got that deal! If you sign up for the marketing card though, you will get sent a free steak and lobster meal for your birthday - well worth filling out a card. Oh - best steak, best potatoes, best seafood and BEST dirty martini! Must try the mushroom cap appetizer that has cream cheese in it - mmmmmm - to die for. Go try it!
Worst Steak in Denver – I had high expectations when I went to dinner at The Keg. The steak was so tough I thought I was going to choke on a piece I should have removed from my mouth instead of attempting to swallow. The baked potato was small when I expected a huge one and the appetizer was terribly small for 2 people. It was a terrible disappointment. I do like the bar area and the atmosphere but will never eat there again.
3 out of 5 steaks badly overdone... then 2 of those 3 bloody the 2nd time – Restaurant had a great low-key atmosphere but there must have been a real rookie chef back there. 3 out of 5 steaks were pure grey in the middle (all 3 were medium requests) - not even a hint of pink. When sent back the waitress said "that's what our medium looks like!" She took it back after our table errupted in laughter. On the second try 2 of the 3 steaks were not even rare... very bloody. I may give The Keg a 2nd try someday but it will be a long time. We should have gone to The Chop House.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Part of a Canadian chain, this LoDo restaurant serves up steaks, escargot and crablegs in a polished atmosphere.
Yaktails! – I am a native of Colorado. However, my family heritage is ranchers/farmers from N.D.. We learn to appreciate food, for that is the main connection between people. That includes family, friends, and entertaining business partners. Coming from a family that raised cattle, hogs, chickens and having a love for fish (including sashimi), we have been to MANY different restaurants. For every speacial occasion, we return to The Keg. The food is excellent. The staff has gone out of their way from our first visit, to accomidate everyone's request. Buy far this is the BEST location for escargot, steak and crab leggs that we have enjoyed. I read the other reviews, and noticed only a few angry reviews included long waits. Yeah, thats because this place is in demand!!! By the way we bring our children, ages 7 and 16.
Try Somewhere Else – First off, The Keg is an excellent value. For a Hundred Dollars you get a lot. The price included 5 drinks, apps, salads, and main course. Unfortunately, the service and food was undesirable. The meat was tough and the wrong cut from what I ordered. The shrimp was chewy and no flavor. We were seated and were not acknowledged for ten minutes. When the waiter came over he poured half a glass of water and disappeared. Hopefully, for the Keg, this was his first day.
disappointed birthday boy – I took my husband & 20 of our closest friends to the keg last night for his birthday. He had one request: the largest steak available - they made him order 2 steaks instead of cutting his to order as we had requested & he ordered it "blue" which is clearly defined on the menu, neither steak approached rare, let alone blue. In addition, although I had made a reservation for 20 people weeks in advance, our table was given away when guests were slightly late w/o so much as the courtesty of the manager's apology. Waitstaff was confused, defintiely not friendly or accomodating. This was the Keg's second chance & they will not receive our business again.
Better than expected. – Colorado is only the fifth state to host a restaurant from this Canadian chain. The name is a bit misleading. You might expect to find a sportsbar that also sells steaks, instead you find a well-appointed dining room featuring dark woods and modern fixtures. Service was excellent. Steak dominates the menu but there are other choices. Prices are reasonable for a downtown steakhouse. The tasty wedge salad came on an ice-cold plate and was loaded with blue cheese. I tried the baseball sirloin, it was good but a little tougher than I expected. The twice-baked potato side dish was very good. Overall, a good, solid, reasonably priced steakhouse.
Steak WITH Sides – Visited from Chicago (we know our steak!) and this place was great! Romantic, dark setting. Cool bar and views of Union Station. The steak was tender and oh so tasty! Great service and suggestions. Value was amazing: $20-$30 for steak which included your choice of side! Dinner with apps and drinks: $68!
RR – Went to the Keg just before a Saturday Denver Stock Show and was surprised at the ease of curb parking btwn 5-6pm. The steaks were superb-we had the Classic Filet and New York Strip dinners. I usually will have some type of topping or even a steak sauce, but these steaks were so flavorable and tender that they melted in your mouth-no need to even use the steak knife!! After living and traveling throughout the US/Canada and overseas, this is by far the best steak I've ever tasted. Getting your bill is a little struggle when the patron level picks up but that small deficiency is tolerable when the food is so outstanding. Have already recommended the Keg to others.
