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.

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

A friend delivers the vinegar to Ken's factory so he was really excited to try Ken's Steak House in Framingham. It was expensive and we left very unimpressed. For 4 people we paid $200... the salad was literally just huge pieces of iceberg lettuce (maybe a cucumber slice and a cherry tomato?) with their classic dressing, clearly not shaken or... More

I don't know why but we haven't been to Ken's Steakhouse (salad dressing at your local grocery store) in years. It was a wonderful experience. The restaurant is detailed in olde English charm. It's not cheesy, it's tastefully done, just the interior of the building alone without the decor sets the mood. Our waiter was very friendly and handled my... More

If you want a great steak in a luxurious dining room, but are operating on a budget and the thought of going to Morton's or Capital Grille makes you shudder, this is your restaurant. Ken's has been in business on route 9 in Framingham since the late 1930s and for good reason: they serve a high quality meal at a... More

I went here for the first time about five years ago. The food was great but was very expensive...so much that my girlfriend and I had to split a meal and an appetizer. The second time I went here was after my sister graduated from college. I ordered fish and it really was not very good. Very bland. I wasn't... More

Visited Ken's on a Friday night. We opted to eat in the lounge. This place is such a throwback, I love it. Stained glass windows are a nice touch. There was a singer in the lounge who sang some "oldies" that fit the scene perfectly. Our server was very good and attentive. I had the Ken's steak and she had... More

My ribeye was excellent; my friend said her prime rib was "as good as any she had ever had in a restaurant" (that's high praise from her). However, the salad was a big soggy...which is a shame, since Ken's Steak House is famous for their delicious dressings. Another member of our party ordered the French onion soup, and she raved...

Our group of 4 was seated immediately on a mid week summer evening. The decor is dated, but seems to be appropriate for this old time steakhouse. The service was good and the staff are well trained. I was not all that impressed with the signature steak that the waiter recommended. It arrived medium well, not medium rare as ordered.... More
