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.

Great Place for lunch!...and dinner

I go to Ken's fairly regularly and I am always surprised how great lunch is there. The bar area is so nice and the lunch choices are very good. I have gone to many other fast food places in the area and paid about the same for...well, fast food. Based on good food, great atmosphere, and... read more

This restaurant has been in the same place for many generations. When the Rat Pack use to be at the theatre across the street, ken's would stay open for them so they could eat after their shows. The menu is diverse - there is something for everyone. The prices are reasonable for the excellent food quality. It is a terrific... More

Ate in the loung area. Food was delicious but service was terrible. Had to chase waiter ( who was also bar tender for intire restaurant ) for everything! We enjoyed the fact that it was a nice cozy are to sit and chat though.

Took a relative there for lunch. While the interior could use a face lift, the food remains consistently good. Lunch prices are reasonable. I will return.

Ken's is old-school in the best way. It's straight-ahead, basic, and very good. There's no theatrical element here: no line-dancing waitstaff or cattle brands on the wall. (There was a pianist on Saturday night, and his choices were pleasant and unobtrusive.) The menu is simple, with nothing nouveau or precious. Order a steak and you'll get a Steak, perfectly cooked...

Four of us again visited and a little disappointed. Wednesday night had great dinner specials. Not too much anymore. Very few specials 4 and at a higher price. Rolls were ok but not as good as before. Fish special small no vegtabta included as used to be, with a higher price

We travel from Brighton to the Natick/Framingham area to shop on a more-or-less regular basis, and have eaten at quite a few restaurants in the Shopper's World and Natick Mall area, but I decided to try Ken's since we have driven past it many times. As might be expected, I read some of the other reviews on both TripAdvisor and... More

Ken's Steak House is an old time standard in the Framingham area. I don't think the decor has been updated in the past 50 years. Although it's a steak house, the only thing that I have ever found consistent there is their planked haddock. Very good, but after the last time there, I have decided that there were far better...

Foodies might scoff at Ken’s because it doesn’t have Kale on the menu and because the average age of the diners is deceased, but what Ken’s does well they really do well. You will not find a better clam chowder or onion soup and that alone is saying something. Steaks are very good (you can’t beat $24 for their signature... More

My wife and I had dinner at Ken's this past weekend. I had been to Ken's a year ago and it was good. This is why I'm rating Poor rather than Terrible. This past weekend it was really quite awful. The white silverware linen wrap had some kind of food particle and black hair immediately noticeable when I opened it.... More
