Go hungry and craving seafood!

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... read 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.

Ken's is a long - time icon in Maine and overall the food is not bad, but the fried seafood is unnecessarily greasy. The clam cakes are probably the least greasy fried option and they are really what Ken's is so well known for...tasty and fresh. You can opt to eat in or outside at one of the many picnic... More

We loved Ken's. It's very casual, with a full service bar. No linens, no table service. Just as well. You go to the window and order your food from a very cheerful staff person, then when your number is called, you fetch it. My whole lobster was less than $14, and steamy hot and delicious. Served with crispy french fries... More

Our reviews are (solely) based on our "personal" tastes & experiences and never intended to persuade/dissuade anyone from patronizing a business. My first time to Ken's but my wife, along with her family living in the area, have been eating here for years. You can eat inside/outside; tables inside, picnic tables outside; as the weather was perfect, we chose outside.... More
