Description: With Age comes great things..Ken's steak house has been serving Metro-West since 1935. Ken and Florence Hanna had a sound formula for success: Good quality food at reasonable prices, an honest drink and a good cup of coffee. Guests always receive prompt, courteous, attentive service. The prime and choice cuts of beef and the fresh seafood found at Ken's has set a standard of quality that is unparalleled.

This restaurant is exactly the type of place regularly featured on restaurant makeover show such as Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares or Robert Irvine's Restaurant Impossible. It's a shadow of its former self. Past the glory days, uninspired, bland, and riding on the good memories of aging seniors. If this place wants to survive- something needs to change soon. Even the...

The food was very good and the service was excellent. I sat in the bar area and enjoyed the atmosphere very much. I believe this place has been in business for a long time and I can see why. I would recommend this place for anyone in the area

It has been around soooo long and the quality is still there in the salads and meats. It is pricey and those who eat there expect it. This was the swinging place in the 1960, 70, 80s. Type of place Sinatra would have gone to especially if he was playing the Carousel in the summer stock. Those days are gone.... More

Having grown up with really great food my entire life I know good food... I usually rely on Trip Advisor reviews but in this case the previous reviewers and I definitely have different tastes......

Ken's has been around for years. It used to be fabulous. We were visiting Mass. and wanted to order our favorites at Ken's, the house salad and clam chowder. We were disappointed with both. The salad consisted of mostly limp iceberg lettuce. The chowder was so-so. This restaurant needs some serious decor updating. It was actually depressing. Too bad. It... More

Highlights: Sat immediately at 530pm on a Saturday night. Shrimp cocktail was fresh and firm. Salad dressing (Kens secret recipe) was awesome on a simple iceberg salad. Steak was ok. Just ok. Bummer. BUT solid waitstaff made up fir it...she was great. Food delivered to table quickly and she catered to my 2 young kids. For that alone I'd return.

We have gone to Ken's Steakhouse on many occasions with our friends and family. We celebrated several birthdays and anniversaries here. The steaks are always very good and the salads are delicious with the house dressing, Ken's of course.

My husband and I have enjoyed a nice steak dinner at Ken's for quite some time. The salad, bread, and quality beef have never disappointed. However, we recently took some friends for a thank you night out and were told that there was a new "chef." I find it hard to believe that a chef could have made all of... More

Grew up with this restaurant, not been for 5 years. Had better- I had the Queen prime rib- lots of scraps came home for the dog, my broccoli side was barely cooked. My husband has the Prime sirloin, he of course ate it all... The waitress was fantastic!! If you want a fancy white table clothes type of restaurant then... More

We have been going on and off to Ken's. The reason is that they can be good but they can be mediocre at times and it is easy to detect a level of arrogance in management. We have been taking a break from them for the last 6 months and decided to go there last night. It was a big... More
