After 5 minutes of waiting in a nearly empty restaurant, we wondered where our waitress was. We were not alone ss we watched a customer... More

After hearing some friends talking about Ken's we had to try it out. The place was busy but we were seated promptly by the hostess. Our server Tammie was right there ready to take our drink order. She returned quickly with our drinks and took our order. We ordered a fried seafood platter each. Now, I'm a big guy and... More

Love the Buffalo Chicken Salad. Large portions for a reasonable price. When they first opened their fried chicken was the primary draw but I have friends who always have the lobster rolls.

Well once again brought back to reality, questioning surviving a dinner out at a local establishment, wow! I live in Skowhegan and rarely ever go to Kens believe me far from anything special. Last night no exception. Arrived at Four and glanced at the specials, the pork roast dinner was offered, unfortunately the waiter behind me took an order for... More

This place is great for a family and the meals are not to expansive. They cater to the town of Skowhegan, and to snowmobilers in the winter. They do have spirits and the service is very good.

I have been to Ken's a number of times over the years, most recently last week on the trip home from Quebec City. I had the turkey croquette meal from the "Lite" menu, and it was enormous! I was served two turkey croquettes, each the size of tennis balls, fries, and cole slaw, and all for $7.99. The service was... More
