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

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.

We always go 6 or 7 of us, always introducing new friends to Ken's, the food, the ambiance and the entertainment just keeps on getting better. Love this place.

My friends and I were planning a day trip to Penetanguishine. One of many stops during our whirlwind tour, was Captain Ken's Diner and Pub. Upon entry, we were greeted by the man himself: Captain Ken. Captain Ken jovially remarked on the abnormal height of our 6'7 comrade. This comment was promptly ignored. We were directed to the cavernous back... More

For a small restaurant, Ken serves a very tasty meal. There is quite a bit of variety to choose from and the waitress is always friendly and helpfull. I always walk away from the table, not able to eat the portion given to me. Great atmosphere.
