The Keg Steakhouse & Bar Restaurant Review: Part of a chain of restaurants throughout Canada and four western American states, The Keg has become a fixture in Old Montreal. Set in an aged commercial building, the place has dark wood and leather décor that’s elegant and comfortable. Service is reliable and often lively, as is the bar section. The steakhouse standards are solid and feature some interesting cuts and preparations such as the thick and substantial baseball top sirloin, while the prime rib is offered in a variety of surf ‘n’ turf dishes. Appetizers also widen the range of possibilities --- consider the baked goat cheese in crushed almonds with a tomato basil salsa or Dungeness crab cakes that are hand-formed and served with a dill caper mayo. The kids’ menu includes smoothies and options including sirloin and barbecued chicken breast. Expect generous servings, consistently executed, and enjoy an uncomplicated, tasty meal --- and perhaps a nice walk around the harbor area afterwards.
