Hey everyone, happy Monday!
Juuust kidding, everyone knows there’s no such thing as a happy Monday.
But I hope it was as painless as possible.
This week’s date night was chosen strictly because we had a gift card. I wanted to stay away from reviewing chain restaurants, but whatevs, free food is free food.
The weather was just ca-raaazy here on Friday night, but we ventured out to the Keg (Kenaston and McGillivray location) anyway. Getting dressed up and going out for a nice meal on Friday night is so fun and relaxing, no “blizzard” was stopping us.
Red wine for me, beer for Jordles. I think I’ll switch it up next time, I’ve been drinking quite a bit of red wine. But holy mackerel, this stuff was a little strong for me.
Next up, bread! I can’t have a nice meal without bread. It would seriously screw it up for me.
I liked this stuff. It was very hearty and had a slightly nutty taste, it was a lot like ciabatta.
Keep in mind, I’m such a carb fiend that I doubt I’ll ever meet a piece of bread covered in butter that I don’t like.
Jordles and I both went for Top Sirlon steak meals.
I ordered my steak “medium”, which is something I’ve never done in my life (I’ve always been a “well done and absolutely no redness” kind of girl), and threw up in my mouth a little when my steak started gushing blood.
Once I got over that unpleasantness, my steak was actually pretty good. Nice, tender and flavorful.
The twice-baked potato was the star of the show for me though, it was delicious! MMmmmm. Super fluffy and full of goodness (like cheese and bacon bits).
Jordan also enjoyed his meal. He got preeeetty much the same thing I did, so I won’t be redundant.
He also got a Mudslide, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had a sip, and it tasted a like a boozy milkshake. Which is a good thing.
We skipped dessert this time, and that’s probably for the best. Our meals + 3 drinks was just under $100!
The only issue I have with The Keg is their prices. Sure, the food is good, and the setting is nice. But the food is not mindblowing and the decor is nothing to write home about. And for $50 a person, it definitely should be.
Overall, a pretty good experience. An 8/10 for service, a 7/10 for the food, and a 5/10 for value. Seriously, if I’m paying 100 bucks for a meal, it better be fantastic, and The Keg just didn’t cut it.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the post and stay away from The Keg unless you’ve got money to burn.
Next week: haven’t decided yet. I’m hoping to making it to the Rice Bowl one of these days.
But I have two pancake recipes and a nice yellow cake coming up, so come back soon! 🙂
