    I have been working at Keg Restaurants part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management is consistently rotated around stores so there is none of the sneaky corrupt stuff that lots of restaurants have. Servers have a lot of autonomy and are treated like adults, and all employees receive great discounts on food. Tip out is super reasonable too! The company also does a lot of fun things like ski trips, bowling, air band competitions, etc. and has a Keg Oscars every year where they nominate outstanding employees.

    Cons

    The company seems to have inadequate training for hosts, and it causes issues on busy nights.

    I worked at Keg Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Reliable and consistent menu, great company, well known and liked. Good price points to drive bill prices up without shocking customers. Generally lovely people to work with.

    Cons

    Small sections that seem to bolster weaker servers and hinder stronger ones. Not a lot of room to put your attitude/personality into serving in the dining room.
