I just returned from a delightful experience at Kenny's. What made it delightful was the cheerful staff when electrical power was lost along about a 2 mile stretch which included Kenny's. Despite not being able to serve hot food, wash dishes and see in the dark, the staff remained calm, cool and collected with great senses of humor. Everyone, including the guests, realized this was not a restaurant problem and simply accepted the situation and made the most of it.
I was able to try only the lobster deviled eggs which, it turned out, was plenty for my dinner along with the Texas-sized popover. I had planned to try the beef tenderloin crostini and the wood-grilled oysters but was unable to do so.
I sat at the chef's table, used my cell phone flashlight when I needed it, enjoyed my glass of wine and simply had a good time with other diners and the staff even though I was dining alone.
As I left, I complimented the manager on the cheerfulness of the staff and their "can do, carry on" attitude. He not only thanked me but offered a $20 gift certificate for my next visit.
Alas, I live out of town but not that far. This place just might entice me to drive a little bit and try the items I missed this time.
If it were possible, I would give Kenny's more than 5 stars. And, I rarely rate restaurants this highly.
