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!

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.
