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

This place is a throwback to the restaurants of the past, and ones that I miss! It was designed to manage noise levels. We were a large party, and I didn't feel we were disturbing anyone around us. We had awesome service, and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. They had a terrific wine list, as well. While the decor... More

My husband's family is from Framingham and they always talk about ken's steak house from back in the day. This was my first time to the Boston area with my husband and his family. I believe they said the parents used to own it and now the kids own it. If that is true, I think the kids have run... More

This is a return trip to Ken's for us. They have a new chef and a new menu and new prices. The food is still top shelf as always but the pricing and new style menu has put this every day restaurant into the occasion category and as the only 6 tables filled in the main dinning room on a... More

We just had some of the best swordfish and profiteroles ever. The swordfish was ocean fresh, and perfectly cooked, and the profiteroles had real whipped cream! We'll be going back soon to try a steak. Also, we found the atmosphere to be pleasant and accommodating, and the service was excellent. I have eaten in some very fine gourmet restaurants and... More
