Why The Keg is special ?

The Keg at the top end of D'Aguilar Street hidden away behind the bend of the main area is a great little venue to go with the lads for a few pints to watch the sporting action on screen while you crack away at the monkey nuts which you can help yourself to from the barrel sitting out front.


From the outside, it looks like a giant barrel and once inside, it couldn't get anymore cosier. Warm lighting, live NHL sports, snacks and good quality beers. On taps they have Hoegaarden, Tetleys, Guinness, Stella, Kilkenny and Carlsberg. If none of those beers are good for you, then go for the special bottled beers which include Grolsh, Erdinger, Boddingtons just to name a few. They also have a special going called "Pressure Hour" where you can keep drinking for half price until you need to release in the toilet. It's all about fun!

- From the outside, it looks like a giant barrel and once inside, it couldn't get anymore cosier. Warm lighting, live NHL sports (because the owners are Canadians), snacks and good quality beers. A place I would be proud to call my local! On taps they have Hoegaarden, Tetley's, Guinness, Stella, Kilkenny and Carlsberg. If none of those beers are good for you (which I am not sure why because they fit me to a T), then go for the special bottled beers which include Grolsch, Erdinger, Boddingtons just to name a few. They also have a special going called "Pressure Hour" where you can keep drinking for half price until you need to release in the toilet. It's all about fun!

- The Keg is a small bar but you will be glad to hear that you can climb a flight of stairs to the next "floor", only that it's just a landing where you can get a neat birds eye view of your new local drinking spot.....The Keg!

Nice ambience with both indoor and outdoor seating. Good salads and great steaks and a decent wine list - the service is very good with friendly staff. Certainly worth a visit if down Oro Valley.

Our second visit to The Keg for my wife's birthday was really special. The food was again very good but the service was truly outstanding. It was one of those nights that would have been a disaster in most restaurants but the management turned it into a great night.After we ordered drinks the waiter came back to tell me they were out of NA beer. I can't drink alcohol now and really miss wine and beer with my meals. But a good NA beer is really appreciated. I was realy discouraged and in most cases would have left the resturant but it was late and my wife's birthday The waiter could see I was really disappointed and went to the manager. The manager ran out and was back with NA beer in 10 minutes. That turned my night around. Later my wife's steak was slightly over cooked, but it was almost immediately replaced by a beautifully cooked steak and severed by the Manager. Later my wife ordered Dubonet as a dessert and they were out. Again the Manager appeared apologized and offered us fee drinks. We had a great night and we delighted to see how those normal bumps in the road can be handled by a really well run restaurant.

The name "The Keg" evokes the mood of a fraternity party and does not at all go with the actuality of this urbane and refined fine dining restaurant. In fact, my husband took me to The Keg as a surprise and, having never been there before himself, didn't know to dress up a bit and tell me to do the same. We felt a little under-dressed, with him in a golf shirt and shorts and me in a casual Merona color block dress. But, the miss-matched name and unanticipated level of formality aside, this was one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long while. Even though we were not as well dressed as we should, ideally, have been, the hostess and our server, and later the owner and the head chef (who circulated around to ensure satisfaction) all treated us with warmth and respect. When I heard the server mention a demi-glace as part of the evening's special, I was concerned about the prospect of refined sugar in my meal and inquired about ingredients in the demi-glace. Without skipping a beat, the server stated that she would find out the full ingredient list and could well understand my concern. She reassured me that, in any case, all sauces are served on the side, in any case, for reasons such as these. This was relevant information and I appreciated her volunteering it. She seemed highly motivated to ensure we were going to feel comfortable with what we were ordering. She radiated a can-do attitude, somehow conveying both professionalism *and* warmth. Impressive and very gratifying. I ended up ordering a top sirloin steak medium well done and when it arrived, it was cooked at *exactly* that level of doneness. The chef apparently has the skill to pull off what is, to my understanding, a pretty technical feat. The steak was tender, juicy and flavorful. I enjoyed it a great deal. But even more notable, was what a truly superb job the chef had done with the sautéed mixed vegetables that I ordered with the steak. I eat a *lot* of vegetables every day and rarely do I find them to taste good or be well prepared in a restaurant. And I don't expect them to be, as I eat them for nutrition, not pleasure. But these vegetables were bright in color, delectably crisp, and so, so fresh that I enjoyed them in their own right. I cannot think of the last time I enjoyed eating vegetables. Really. I had a glass of merlot with my meal, a Sonoma County wine by the name of St. Francis. It was not as grassy or dry as I typically expect in a merlot, but it was very pleasant and I was in no way sorry nor disappointed in it. It seemed of good quality with a nice bouquet and a velvet-y mouth-feel. My husband reported that his grilled sirloin steak salad was very well prepared and tasty. Like me, he seemed pleased with his meal, but (with this TripAdvisor review in mind), I did ask him outright, and he said he was very impressed with our meal and the service. Our server somehow managed to be attentive but unobtrusive, never pressuring us or rushing us, yet being right there to whisk away empty plates or to refill water glasses as soon as it was merited. She conveyed happiness to be able to make the meal complete and absolutely no judmentalness at all when I sheepishly requested an extra ramekin of butter to go with the delicious loaf of sourdough bread she'd brought us at the outset. :) We liked the décor quite a bit, too. The lighting was just right, not too dim but definitely not garish--it was sedate and peaceful. The use of lots of natural materials such as dark wood and stone, accented with subtly East Asian art work and floral arrangements lent calming notes to the ambience. And I felt the way the booths and tables were arranged was smartly designed to leave diners feeling tucked away safely, but still in view of other diners to lend a touch of collective effervescence. The owner himself and, even at one point, the head chef, came to our table to ask if everything was up to our expectations. They did not do this in a pressuring, needy way, but seemed genuinely to care. I can't think of the last time that happened in a restaurant. The bottom line is that this was a delight on every parameter: food, service and ambience. We'll be back, I really hope. Worth the drive from Tucson!
