Keg Steakhouse + Bar (Granville Island)

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Dropped in after a post-dinner walk from Unchai to have a snack and dessert. We whiled away a half hour savouring a dessert before trying the calamari at the Happy Hour price.

As usual the server wasn't exactly thrilled especially as we didn't order any alcohol (none of us being drinkers). But the place wasn't exactly packed either.

Calamari ($14 or $10 during Happy Hour)
  • We were informed the $10 happy hour portion is the same as the $14 regular menu portion.
  • Not recommended even at $10. Seemed flat somehow. Lacked seasoning? And price for portion at $10.
  • If you do get it, try to pair each piece with the fried jalapeƱo slices to get some bite to each bite.
Billy Miner Pie ($7) mocha ice cream on a chocolate crust with hot fudge, caramel, and almonds
  • Simple idea that's tasty. Ice cream is soft and easy to spoon through but doesn't start melting into a puddle right away. Still, if you're going to try more than one dessert I wouldn't ask for them all to be brought out at once.
  • Seemed like a surprising portion for $7 so if you're dining solo or duo, plan ahead.
  • Our server said their cheesecake was made by the Keg but offsite and distributed to the outlets so this was probably the same. So you can expect supermarket quality for their desserts in general.
  • The portion is big enough that if you get bored midway you can experiment with the pepper and salt at your table. Go heavy on the pepper to get enough impact. For the salt to get that salted caramel taste, go easy as that salt grinder gives you rather large chips.
