This is a bellwether restaurant whose quality and consistency has withstood the test of time. Their lobster roll is a family favorite.

My wife and I went to Ken's just the other night for dinner. We were sat immediately and received our food in record time! The meal was hot and delicious! I would recommend anyone to eat this restaurant!

Parking lot was full and there was a waiting line. All good signs for a restaurant. We weren't disappointed with our meals. Portions are huge and warm bread to start the meal was yummy. All you can eat fish and chips was gigantic. No one could possible eat seconds but the waitress asked me anyway! Super good onion rings and... More

A large menu with selections of seafood, steaks, burgers, sandwiches, salads and pasta. Had the fried clam strips and a small bowl of chowder. Both were great. The clam strips were lightly breaded and very tender.

Generous portions, fresh and tasty. I had a lobster salad, prepared without mayonnaise; just chunks of lobster, a huge fresh salad, and coleslaw. They brought me balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the side. Great service, and very reasonable prices.

I have never heard,of a food place opening at 10:30a.m. but it is what it is.. I recommend the stuffed halibut on weekends, but get there early , they are usually sold out after the church crowd. Pleasant staff, prices are ok. But as everything else prices have jumped, so has the seafood in Maine.

Large place filled with locals, travelers and old folk. We went for breakfast on a Saturday, but did not have the breakfast buffet. Food was as expected. The biscuit was good, as was the muffin. The waitress was very nice and kept our coffee hot. Nothing special, but inexpensive for breakfast.

Buffet breakfast on Sunday, only 1 waitress at 7:30 (opens at 7), powdered eggs for scrambled eggs, food was cold, juice is watered down, sausage gravy was nothing I have ever seen before and did not taste or look like sausage in it. No seasonings, and more pastry then anything. Just keep driving not worth the money or the time... More

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!
