Great place to stop in to get to know the locals. Family friendly. Great service & great staff. Good food & good drink. Come on in during the warm weather season & you will have experienced a good time, meet good people & make new friends. My husband is counting the days when Ken's opens back up in April.

We were driving around and hungry and the parking lot was full so we thought we'd stop here for lunch. We ordered lobster rolls and onion rings. The lobster rolls were fine, how can you really screw up a lobster roll. The onion rings were terrible, they were closing the next day and I think it was old oil. It... More

Ken's Seafood is a neighborhood restaurant that has been around for years. I don't understand this as I think their food is bland. The fried shrimp, for instance, tastes fried but has no real seasoning on it. Can't even taste the shrimp. But it's always busy, so if you like seafood that is bland this is the place for you....

Ken's place is unassuming, and much bigger inside than it looks. They have a raw bar, and a large selection of seafood as well as sandwiches like burgers and grilled cheese. You order at the window then find a table and wait for your number to be called. Food is served on disposable plates with plastic cutlery. The food was... More

Whenever we come to Scarborough we make a point of stopping at Ken's. The seafood platters are generous portions and great quality. Everything is prepared fresh as you wait and the staff are cheerful and accommodating. Highly recommended!

At the suggestion of a local, we tried Kens and were quite pleased. Basically it is a fast food seafood joint. Nothing fancy, but excellent food. There is also a raw bar available. You stand in line to place your order, and then wait until your window is called, pick up your food and bring it to the table. 5... More

Wife and I and two grand daughter visited Kens upon recommendation of Old Orchard Beach CofC person. Thought it to be a sit down type restaurant with wait staff but turned out to be an order at the window and pick up at another window. Food and staff was great. A challenge to find an open table to sit. Some... More

Whenever I come to Maine, I always make it a point to come to Ken's Place for a Lobster Roll - the lobster meat is always fresh and plentiful! I usually pair it with the onion rings - also a winner!

Pleasantly surprised with the variety, quality and quantity of the food. We ordered the normal for 3 people and could have quite easily been happy with half. Very friendly and comfortable dining area. They did offer a bar.

Thank BOO-JOcamper
