We were in town visiting my sister-in-law and she volunteered to take us to dinner at Ken's. She ordered The Sea Monster, which she told us she'd had before. She was only able to eat about 1/4 of it and had to take the rest home. I looked at it and said that maybe 25 years ago I could have... More

This restaurant served up a lobster roll for $9.99 that was as good as any that we have paid for way over that. The server was friendly and attentive, the food was served expeditiously and we left with full tummies. We'll be back when we go through this area again. One recommendation - order the onion rings as an extra!

I had the best lobster roll I've ever had! So much whole, sweet claw meat! My mr had a great burger. Service was professional, prompt & pleasant. We have added this as a regular stop. So glad we stopped in!

Ken's Family Restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is really good. We have tried seafood at many places from Central Maine to Southern Maine and have found the Monster platter of Seafood is the best hands down at Ken's Family Restaurant..

My boyfriend and I stayed up in Greenville Maine for a weekend and decided to explore a little. After driving for what seemed like an eternity, we ended up in Skowhegan and we were hungry. I searched restaurants on google and saw that Ken's had a good rating. When we pulled up, it looked like a rather old restaurant with... More

Awesome menu, great variety and value, cheerful staff. DELICIOUS FOOD!! Bring a big appetite and give yourself lots of time to read the menu and pay attention to the starred "Ken's Favourites" items.

Although they don't serve breakfast on weekdays, the place isn't too bad. They have a very large menu with plenty of choices so you're bound to find something you can enjoy. Large portions, even on the "Light Menu." Good place if you're passing through.

We have been there several times. Most recently for the breakfast buffet. They have all you could ask for, and more. They included healthier fair like egg white omelets made to order, a fresh fruit and yogurt bar, a nice touch, juice dispenser included for kids. Our family of four had an incredible meal, and it cost less than 45... More

The restaurant was crowded, a good sign, and we were not disappointed. I had the clam strip dinner and onion rings and Marti had the fried oyster dinner. Both meals were delicious and the service was also fine. The clam strips were done just right and the onion rings were nice and crispy. I did have one of the fried... More
