Large portions, great fresh local fish, fast service, nice surroundings. Best F&C's in the area. No pool, the tables are long-gone. Don't be put off by the title, the back room is nicely renovated.

Food is good. Staff are very friendly and service was prompt. Great place for all meals: lunch, brunch, dinner, supper or breakfast. Even good for just stopping in for a drink. Prices are a bit high though for what you get.

Poor atmosphere, old deco...average food. Nothing to recommend Service was poor. Almost like we were bothering them by being there. Seemed like a local hang out for community seniors/guys. Not a place that was there for new comers

On the suggestion we tried it and found Captain Kens to be a nice cozy and friendly place the service was prompt, helpful and very nice. The food was fresh and hot with a genuine concern on how it was. The fish and chips were well done and tasty.

My wife and I recently purchased a cottage and sought a go-to place to eat. We found it at Ken's! Folks, this is a diner type experience, so if you go expecting something different, your review may be skewed.

Ken's diner has been in business for many years and I guess that speaks for itself. Many people locally like it a lot. For us though, not so much. Although some of their fish and chips, (fries) are delicious, their prices are quite expensive. We always order their Pickerrel diner and it's very tasty but bring your wallet. Their Sunday... More

As a long time cottager in the area, I have often commented on the lack of establishments in the area where we order good food, grab a drink, and watch whatever sports might be in season...yesterday I found my new in-town hangout spot. We stopped in for lunch, opting to sit in the sports bar area. Our waitress was incredibly... More
