Kent's is like a "go to" place. It's not fancy, but the food is ALWAYS good and the prices are very reasonable. We like the seafood a lot! Our favorite is the combo plate with clams and shrimp but everything is tasty. The home made bread is a nice touch. I also like the daily specials. My favorite, when they... More

Great food-prices-cocktails! Nice job to all the staff! The baked stuff chicken (sage & sausage stuffing) is to awesome! Bring your appetite! For $12.99 you get the main course and like 100 sides! Just kidding-3 sides...but when you get the meal-it feels and looks like 100! My husband had the short ribs for $1.00-more. Total yum in your mouth! Both... More

This is a family-run, no-frills place popular with locals. The emphasis is on seafood. As an old New Englander visiting my old home turf, I was yearning for fried whole-belly clams - and I was not disappointed. Don´t expect linen napkins, just good food and lots of it.

We arrived at our hotel late and did not arrive at Kent's until 8:45 pm they were closing at 9! Being the only place to get a real meal close we decided to take our chances. The fish and chips dinner was fantastic! My wife had New England (white) clam chowder and clam cakes which were not so much cake... More

A little run down. Staff not too friendly and inefficient. When I complained about the meal (grey looking turkey) she argued with me, said it was fine. My husband said he then didn't want the soup she almost didn't take it off the check. I told her he wasn't going eat because I couldn't. She went to fix the check... More

Nice meals. Large portions. Friendly staff. Quick service. My family enjoyed the entire meal. The fish and chips had huge yummy pieces of cod and I should have just gotten 1 piece. My daughter enjoyed the chicken parm. The seafood platter was also overflowing with food.

The food was basic average food. Period. There were 5 of us and we had Fish and Chips, Steak tips, hot dogs and smelts. The waitress LIZ was phenomenal, she knew exactly what she was doing and was very nice and prompt and honest. The kitchen, however, could be heard (out in the dining room) yelling when she returned something... More

Kent' is a small restaurant with fresh seafood-they have the best seafood I have had (Fried Clams- Fried Scallops-Fish @Chips. I find them a bit pricey - but if you have a dine-out book -it"s worth it- if not as I said pricey-but if you want quality-and amount served -it is well worth it - service is great-and the bread...
