I've been going to Ken's off and on for a few years now, I think I have had around 4 good meals out of the several times I've eaten there. I always like to give a restaurant another chance but this time I'm through. We waited almost 25 minutes for our meals to come and the restaurant was NOT busy.... More

We snowmobiled from the Belmont Motel to Ken's for the breakfast buffet. I'm not a breakfast person, but did enjoy the little I ate. the other 10 people in our group thoroughly enjoyed the buffet. The food was fresh, omelets were cooked to order, and foods offered were varied--muffins, donuts, toast, many hot items, fresh fruit, juices, milk, coffee, and... More

I eat here about every 4 months and am always pleased with the service . I have had seafood platters that have not been fried long enough. Also, orders mixed up by new servers. The atmosphere is nice, with family being the emphasis. The breakfast buffet is good. Seems to be a selection for everyone. I will definitely continue to... More

I like Ken's. I like their fried chicken. It is too greasy, but tastes good. My wife doesn't like Men's, but I would choose to go. Enjoyable, fried chicken, a little bland.

Stopped in expecting a simple meal- and WOW--- The food choices were plenty and the portions were HUGE! The taste was wonderful. They know how to satisfy customers. Great service, prices and food. Definately will return.

When driving through Maine I always stop at Ken's for lunch where I love their chicken salad sandwich. Very reasonably priced and full of chicken. These folks really work hard and offer good value. No wonder it seems to be popular with seniors who can get a hearty meal for not too much money. Then it's on to Gifford's for... More

the quantity and quality of the food was excellent. Plenty of places to sit and eat both inside and outside. Good place to bring family while on faction.

Can't support all the superlative comments I've seen here. It was OK. Ordered the seafood medaly and the seafood Alfredo. Both were not bad but no great shakes. Still good for the money. Fried options would probably have been better and I wouldn't have expected as much.

While traveling to a family reunion in the middle of Maine at the end of June, we spent the night at a wonderful little family owned motel (Belmont Motel), and had Ken's Family Restuarant recommended. Didn't know it was a chicken and seafood place, but soon realized our good fortune. It was pretty packed with locals, but we got a... More
