Nothing fancy, but good value

We've eaten at Kent's many times over the years. Today, we were short on time, so wanted something quick, good and nearby. We both had a pastrami with fries ($8.99) and I had a small pitcher ($6) of Narragansett draft beer. With tip (and a decaf coffee brewed fresh) it was $35 -- the bill was $29... read more

Last year we loved our meal and this year was a bit of a disappointment. My meal came with a salad - there was lettuce, one slice of cucumber, and one slice of tomato on it. The bread was burnt. The chowder is still very good, the fried scallops were good too. The baked scallops were lacking in flavour/seasoning.

Great local restaurant with a "Cheers" feel to it! Great food and service! Good value for the money. I would recommend this restaurant for a couple or a group.

The service was prompt and efficient, though not particularly pleasant or friendly. The portions were more than ample, and the food was fresh. The menu selection is adequate.

Good seafood and chowder. I had the smelt appetizer - enough smelt to really be considered a meal. Very tasty.... However, sides are bland - rice pilaf needs to be kicked up a notch or two, side veggies overcooked and appeared to have been boiled not steamed. Waitress staff very efficient, friendly and food arrives hot. Appears to be a... More

Hv never been to Kent's before but if in that area again I'd return. The food was good , the price was reasonable and the services attentive. I'm dieting and had a good Caesar salad with chicken. My wife enjoyed a stuffed chicken dish . We were both very tempted to forget our diets when we saw other's servings. If... More

I've been to Kent's Restaurant at least 30 times over the last several years. After golf with a group, with my family, and just for lunch. I' have always enjoyed the food and and the wait staff. Really delicious fried seafood has always been a favorite as well as their sandwiches and specials. I'd recommend their English style fish and... More
