Filet

The blacken filet at Kennedy's Cove will rival any steakhouse in the country. The service was friendly and competent. However the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired.

Starters a Bombay sapphire and tonic for myself and a Bacardi and diet for my wife. Steamed clams sound great! Nope none of those . How about mussels then. Well nope none of those either. Okay the calamari ? Sure . I think if McDonald's put calamari in there menu they would do better than Kennedys Cove. This is not... More

One of the best steaks ever! To start the Seafood Bisque, and Steak Vegetable soup were wonderful. We all had the Rib Eye with the blackened seasoning and everyone raved about its flavor. The Filet was tried by my son on a previous visit and can't go wrong with that as well.The twice baked potatoes were huge. My son said... More

Cute cozy comfortable restuarant. know for their blackened steak, this place offers exceptional food. From appitizers to dessert; everything is high quality and hard to beat. I suggest the banana pepper shrimp appetizer which consists of jumbo shrimp sauteed with banana peppers in a banana pepper cream sauce... then the blackened filet which comes with a huge baked potato or...

This suburban restaurant is known for a long tradition of serving fine steaks and seafood in the Buffalo area. It's menu consistently offers a variety of delicious dishes and the service was just perfect. I highly recommend this local favorite as "The Real Deal."

Four of us went to Kennedy's Cove on Main street in Clarence for restaurant week. We all ordered the 8 oz filet blackened, with baked potato. I had the french onion soup and the other three had the side salad. The steaks were cooked as ordered, two medium rare and two medium well. The steaks were excellent. Only complaint is... More

Forget the fancy steak place in downtown Buffalo. They serve donkey meat. You want a REAL piece of meat, then Kennedy's Cove is the place to go. Fancy tables, no. Atmosphere, yes. Service, good. What can I say about the food, "Oh My God! Oh My God! Oh My God! Oh My God!" They serve one of the best meals... More

Melt in your mouth steak! Be sure to get it "blackened", which is their specialty. Gives the outside an awesome flavor while the inside is kept tender enough to cut with your fork! Clams Casino is a must as an appetizer. Awesome seafood too if you're not in the mood for steak!

I was here with a group of European clients and we had a great meal at KC. Wine list was good and reasonably priced. Steaks were tasty and the service was good. Europeans sure do like steak American style!
