Excellent Clam Chowder

Stopped at Ken's Place on recommendation from a local when I inquired where to find good clam chowder. The chowder was some of the best I've had and my wife's clam strips were the best!

Great family seasonal restaurant... We here in Southern Maine wait for this restaurant to open every year. They have the best seafood around ( I love the fried clams!). They have a bar if you want drinks with your meal. You can dine in or take out, but just don't drive by, stop!

ALWAYS stop in at Ken's when I'm lucky enough to be in southern Maine. Grilled haddock is my dish du jour there. So very good.

Great family friendly seasonal restaurant with the freshest and best tasting seafood to be found. My personal favorite is the clams, they are excellent here! Nothing is bad and the portions are huge. If you are visiting the area or just looking for the best summer restaurant in Maine to get you seafood fix, do not miss Ken's!!!

Stopped at Ken's for a quick snack before heading up to the airport. Ordered a small order of fried clams for $16 the cashier said it would enough for two people. The order came in a large sized cup?? It was about 5-6 clams per person. Quality was good but a little pricey for the portion. Place got packed quickly... More

The clam chowder was overpowered with a dice and way too many potatoes. Fried shrimp and French fries were good. Fried clams in batter were kind of soggy, not the usual crisp. Prepackaged tartar sauce unless your in the know and ask for their homemade tartar sauce. Free ice cream with kids meals is a nice bonus.

The food was not bad, nor was it was great. Just average. The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Standing at the numbered windows waiting for their order, customers are sandwiched between others who are working their way to the order window and those who are at the tables next to serving windows. The final surprise came when I... More

This is basically a fried food joint! The crowded parking lot and long lines fooled us into expecting more. We were surprised when we walked thru the doors to find numbered window stations to place/pick-up your orders in a very casual eating environment. The staff is very friendly and accommodating but the food is ALL fried and plenty of it... More

Good food but calorific. Most things are fried. We were here years ago, but it persists, and one of our neighbours insists the French fries here are the best in the world!
