I ordered the pan friend pickerel and chips. It was delicious! The customers seated next to me had... read more

When I first started working here on weekends, I mostly was rushing up from work in the city - working here for 3 days and rushing back. The first place that I ever went out to eat was at Captain Ken's. I still remember where I sat and what I ate... The fish and chips were superb! The servings enormous.... More

Always good food, nice surroundings, friendly and efficient staff. I have been there for both lunch and dinner with large groups and also as a couple. The food and service is always very good. in the last couple of years the resturant has been remodelled. There are no longer billiard tables.

To die for. The food here is excellent. The service was quick and we were treated as family. Looking at the outside we had no idea how great the food is. The chicken wings, the spare ribs, the pickeral and anything we have ordered over the past year has been nothing but excellent. Recommend this place when in the Pentang... More

Best pan fried pickerel you can find. Friendly, fast service. Ken is just a super nice guy. They have more than fish and chips. Try the daily specials.

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

We went on a Sunday and ordered off the menu after waiting a long time for the waitress. An hour later and much glaring later we were told the grill had been busy with a large breakfast order. This was for a table that ordered after us, so i am assuming the waitress forgot to put in our order. Half... More
