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 is a Framingham institution, but the last few times I have been here, the steak has been lousy (both for myself and my dinner companions). It is so disappointing because I love steak and I know they can cook it right, but they just don't. Would like to support local business, but it isn't... read more

My family was coming up to visit for Easter and I wanted to take them to a nice place for dinner. I made reservations at Ken's but then became a little worried after reading the mixed reviews on TripAdvisor. MY worries were allayed as soon as we entered. It was 3pm on Easter Sunday and the place was packed. I... More

Love this place - have always loved this place. Been going there for over thirty years and you just can't go wrong here. Service is also fantastic! We especially love when they section off the back for shows.

Kens has been around for a couple of generations and is still family run. Food is consistently good and in a pleasant atmosphere

Thus my wife says! Who never liked steaks. We ordered for one for her medium done. She did not like it. We communicated the same to our host, who promptly took it and had it fully done. Voila - my wife loved it! I commend the excellent service at the restaurant and of course the steak and the very traditional... More

After reading some very lukewarm reviews we were hesitant to try Ken's but we were there so we figured why not. We were very pleasantly surprised. The wine selection was fine and reasonably priced. The salads were excellent, both the Caesar salad and the wedge. The sirloin steak dinner (including salad and a side) for only $24 was quite good.... More

I am old enough to remember when you had to have a suit or sport jacket to go to Ken's. That being said I am very happy to say that accept for prices and a few items changed on the menu things are uniform and the same as they were 50 years ago. Prime Rib, Steaks, Fish, Clam's Casino and... More

Reading the other reviews of Ken's is like reading the history of a small town fallen on hard times. Ken's is a institution struggling to survive in a world very different than the world of the original owners. I could blather on about how my ribeye was supermarket quality with little flavor, but I'm going a different route. I'm taking... More

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...
