Great family lunch spot--don't let drab exterior deceive you

Excellent lobster rolls. Efficient service. Very good honey wheat bread while you wait for your entrée. We couldn't have been more pleased. Easy to see why the wall is lined with recognition plaques.

My family always stops here on the way up to my grandparents place. I can't say i've ever had a bad experience. Chicken is to die for and everyone is super friendly and attentive. I hope you have as an amazing meal as we've had for generations!

Very nice atmosphere and great food. Large portions and tasty! We got the "monster" with fried clams (whole and strips), shrimp, bay scallops, pollack and haddock. It was a jumbo overflowing plate of seafood. It came with 2 sides of which there was a lot to choose from. We got a large salad and order of onion rings. Two of... More

WE stop here often on our way to camp. Breakfast buffet is good with fresh omelet's, and the fried chicken is a local favorite. Service is good and friendly. For a home cooked comfort food stop in and fill up.

We stopped in for dinner on our way home. Had eaten here years ago. Had a great meal - place was full but didn't have to wait for a table. Had a great waitress too. Two adults and a teen could eat for $52 with tax. We started with their fresh honey wheat bread (very tasty) and also started with... More

Looking for a restaurant for a hot meal during a trip, I found online reviews of Ken's and it looked like it would be a good choice (out of the limited choices in the area). Unfortunately I found poor service (very unfriendly waitress who did her best to ignore a woman traveling alone) and fried seafood that was inedible (breading... More

From Bingham, Bar Harbor and Otis in Maine, and from Boston! We gathered to celebrate two birthdays! We were seated promptly, our server was friendly, welcoming and fast with our beverages.
