Sea food with good pricing.

How can you beat $14.00 lobster rolls and a clam plate for $ 14.50. The fish was fresh and very good. Only comment was hoping the rolls get a little bigger next time.

Great food ! Reasonably priced and moved a ton of people through with NO PROBLEM! Get there by 4, or after 7:30 to avoid long lines. Only downer...........bathrooms outside away from building. But definitely a must stop place to eat.

This may sound unlikely, but I have been coming to Ken's Place since the early 1950's, and my mother, who was from Saco ME, actually knew the person who started the place! So I am completely and totally biased. This restaurant serves the best fried clams in these United States. I have eaten a ton of them in my lifetime,... More

We always go to Ken's when we vacation in Old Orchard Beach. It is clean, staff is friendly and service is quick. And the food is always good. A lot better than we have gotten down at the pier, or in local restaurants. Today we had a combo plate. Mine was was fried Haddock with clams and my husband had... More

Long lines, so must be good, right? Chicken nugget meal was very good. Fried shrimp were pathetic though because they were the size of baby snails. Should've asked for substitute or reorder, but long line and chaos made me rethink the idea.

I's all good. Tonight was a haddock Sandwich & a scallop dinner. Definitely order your fried seafood in crumbs. People who want battered fried foods are an oddity to me. I would give Ken's a 10 star rating if they had a water view.

Stopped by with the family traveling down maine's coastal highway. The fried combo with haddock and shrimps was awesome. The place is very genuine and the staff friendly. Definitely worth the stop and will be coming back again

I wanted an authentic fried clam dinner that was local, yet not a chain restaurant. Our attendant explained the difference between batter and the crumb style, suggested other selections, she was just really knowledgeable about the products they served.

Of the several seafood places we've tried in over 40 years as a Mainer, this is at the top with Bay Haven in Cornish. Great fresh seafood in a clean environment (my wife noticed they were scrubbing the vents the other day). So much better and more for the money then Lobster Shack or Becky's Diner, and not even comparable... More

We've been going to Kens for years. It seems like most of Maine goes there too! The food is fresh, the place is spotless and the staff is always nice. The lobster and crab rolls are yummy and the fried foods are not greasy, just delicious!
