My Wife and I stopped in here during a drive while vacationing in Wasaga Beach. After seeing the town of Penetanguishine we asked one of the locals and she suggested Captain Ken's. Our server was Tammy. First, it was very hot inside the restaurant so we asked for drinks right away. My wife had the Beef Au Jus and I... More

Tired after a three day cross country drive from Colorado, this is where we ate Easter dinner. It is not easy to find a place that is open on Easter and when we arrived it looked as if they were closing up early for the night. They were nice enough to keep the kitchen open to serve us. The front... More

Food is average at best. Overpriced. Mediocre service. We have many better places to eat in town. I would not go back.

Pretty place with lots of atmosphere. Service was impeccable! Had our dog in the car and our very friendly waitress told us we could tie him out back. Then the chef came to our table with cold water and two pieces of bacon for our pooch! It felt like we were visiting family and it was our first time there!... More

The prices are high, the portions are small. The staff behind the counter cooking are unproffessional and unsanitary in their work habits. It appeared clean at first but once you sit down and start looking around, not so clean and pretty gross. The washrooms were disgusting. Brown lettuce on my burger; guess they figured I wouldn't see it. Big white... More

This is the second time I have had lunch at Captain Ken's. I must say their Pickerel is outstanding so fresh and delicious right from the bay. The fries are homemade fresh cut. I my opinion the best choice in town for fresh local fish. I would highly recommend Captain Ken's.

If you enjoy real seafood try the newly renovated Captain Ken's pub on main street in Penetanguisene.Try the pan fried pickeral or if you like everything, the Nova Scotia chowder is amazing. The 10 beers on tap top it off.
