Still terrific after all these years!

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... read more

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

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

Its just not summer in Maine without visits to Kens and eating fried clams in batter at a picnic table under the pines adjacent to the restaurant. Plenty of parking, never had to wait for a table, and consistently excellent fried food.

The best, freshest local seafood served by the friendliest staff! Food is cooked to order, raw bar is shucked right in front of you. Clean establishment.

Nothing to dislike! Well, actually they could use a better waiting in line system. You have to wait in line right by the door and everyone is right on top of each other. The front door should be for ENTRANCE ONLY and the sides for exit.
