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

The crumb batter on the fried seafood is delicious! The environment is casual and relaxed with plenty of tables so the wait line is usually short.

The woman's bathroom toilet was plugged, couldn't use it. Sanitary conditions in the kitchen may be equally bad as i ended up with diarrhea couple hours after eating there. The woman behind me sent her onion rings back because of hair in them. Eating here is a crap shoot from my experience.

Great family restaurant, ordered whole belly clams, very fresh and tasty! As native of RI, and know good sea food, this is the place to eat, and prices are appropriate, along with the large serving size! Service is quick and friendly!

Whenever we travel towards Skowhegan, we try to eat at Ken's. The food and staff are great. Plenty of parking. We have never had a bad meal there.

We travelled down to Skowhegan for the State Fair and decided to drop in here for lunch afterwards. Ken's Family Restaurant turned out to be a wonderful find and the best value during our three weeks of traveling around Maine. The service was excellent, the food delicious, the portions plentiful and a great place to take a family. We recommend... More

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!
