Still good but on the decline...

Ken's still has the best clams and clam strips, but portions are now smaller and prices have increased. You have to ask for the homemade tartar sauce and cocktail sauce, otherwise you will get a store brand. For a better deal on price and quantity of food, try the Clambake a minute up the road.

If you're looking for wonderful shrimp, scallops, lobster, clams, haddock....whatever you might expect for seafood on the coast of Maine....then make a trip to Ken's. Sometimes the line to order can be long, but everyone is friendly and the food is definitely worth the wait. There is a bar for adult drinks and ice cream for dessert. A Maine institution... More

The clam chowder wasn't quite creamy enough... but the lobster roll was perfect! Chicken nuggets were good too, if youre tired of eating seafood... Loved the concept.. Good for lunch, not quite for dinner

We tried the Lobster Roll plate. The meal was decent, but being from the south, it lacked the needed seasoning. The presentation was good and the staff I encountered was helpful and friendly. Would return, but only to try something different.

Went there with a couple of my girlfriends because we heard they were good. Most other seafood restaurants are closed so we opted to try Ken's. I had the 2 Comb with fried clams and scallops. I chose the battered over the crumb version. Turned out to be a Tempura batter! ON FRIED CLAMS!! Who does that??? Cole Slaw was... More

I used to go to Ken's as a child when it was take out only, nothing has changed except the size of the building! The food is fresh, the staff friendly and courteous, can't wait to go back! Had the lobster roll and a cup of haddock chowder for lunch recently, it was delicious! The lobster was so fresh, dressed... More

So much food, so little time lol. I hit this place several times every summer and have never been dissatisfied. The clams are a delight and the sweet smell of scallops just before you pop one into your mouth is to die for. The lines can be very long and the bar can get loud but who cares. If you... More

I like Ken's a lot. I think it is the best of several venues in the area. Whenever we have out-of-town guests we always make a point to go to Ken's. I particularly like the haddock dinner. It is always cooked perfectly.

I've been to all of the fried seafood places in Pine Point as I live right smack in the middle of all of them . Ken's and Bayley's are the only two we will ever go to . Clambake , Salty Bay & "the Poop Deck " are totally off the list . Sadly all of them are below par... More
