Description: We are a DINER, serving breakfast and lunch daily. Friday and Saturday evenings we open late 11pm to 2am serving breakfast and sandwiches. We are not a seafood restaurant, there are already plenty of those on the Island. We are a DINER serving your typical breakfast and lunch menu, however, we do offer some seafood items during lunch. We are priced right and the portions are plentiful and the food is fresh. We have a 50's theme with classic cars and music.

I liked the restaurant décor and the service was good, yet my food was average. I went there with 5 other people and they felt the same way. The portion servings were decent and food tasted okay. I am not a fan of fried food, so maybe that's why I would not go back.

The back porch of this diner is heaven. You stare right out at Atsena Otie Island, watch kayakers go by, dolphins jumping. We had fried shrimp and it was pretty good, prices are reasonable. Service is very friendly.

Our first visit to Ken's certainly will not be our last. My wife and I had a wonderful breakfast, loving Ken's Crusty French Toast. Service staff were attentive, food was great, location and view are great. Definitely will be back for lunch this winter when we return to Cedar Key.

During our vacations to Florida we always make a point of making sure we eat here a couple of times each trip. It's a place with really great food. Their burgers in particular are excellent. As are the patty melts and onion rings. We've never had a bad meal or bad service. There's a screened in patio which allows the... More

We had breakfast here with some friends and the food was very good. You have to try the Blown Engine..........more food than you can eat. Fresh and filling.

The service was polite and friendly with a fun atmosphere. The view was amazing . The food delicious and reasonably priced. I'm so sick of the chain restaurants which this is not. This was like a home cooked meal. We later went back and checked out there downstairs shop and had a specialty coffee. Desserts looked awesome but I was... More

Best breakfast place (in a very limited market). Good basic menu and daily comfort foods served. Open for breakfast and lunch only.
