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

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
