When I want fresh seafood & I am not able to get to the coast, Ken's is the very best next thing. Great service & atmosphere as well!

We have enjoyed Ken's in the past having stopped there about 6 years ago for the first time when we were driving back to the coast from Quebec City with friends. The men had loved their fried chicken and we have driven there (21/2 hrs away) several times since as a day trip just to have the fried chicken. We... More

The best by far chicken and freshest seafood. The breakfast buffet is really good too. Good variety for picky eaters.

We decided to stop here as we were hungry and it looked liked like a nice family restaurant. The prices were excellent and amount of food you get is enough for two people. We however never got all the food we ordered for sides and when brought to the attention of the waitress she said she would take care of... More

We used to have one near us, now we have to drive 30 minutes to visit this one. My parents go quite often. Great food and service. It's not a chain and sometimes you want just that. They are a limited breed.

I've been going to Ken's off and on for a few years now, I think I have had around 4 good meals out of the several times I've eaten there. I always like to give a restaurant another chance but this time I'm through. We waited almost 25 minutes for our meals to come and the restaurant was NOT busy.... More

We snowmobiled from the Belmont Motel to Ken's for the breakfast buffet. I'm not a breakfast person, but did enjoy the little I ate. the other 10 people in our group thoroughly enjoyed the buffet. The food was fresh, omelets were cooked to order, and foods offered were varied--muffins, donuts, toast, many hot items, fresh fruit, juices, milk, coffee, and... More

I eat here about every 4 months and am always pleased with the service . I have had seafood platters that have not been fried long enough. Also, orders mixed up by new servers. The atmosphere is nice, with family being the emphasis. The breakfast buffet is good. Seems to be a selection for everyone. I will definitely continue to... More

I like Ken's. I like their fried chicken. It is too greasy, but tastes good. My wife doesn't like Men's, but I would choose to go. Enjoyable, fried chicken, a little bland.
