Ken’s is a seasonal seafood joint that meets the description of “your typical tourist eatery.” Although there is seating indoors, the picnic tables outside are much more to my liking. Each table has an umbrella for the sun-dodgers, and because of the outside venu, the...More

Ken's is a genuine Maine seafood house where locals go to down massive portions of fried and broiled seafood. Fries are a bit mediocre. We enjoyed fresh scallops and a bargain double lobster dinner for $25. I enjoyed an excellent local IPA from the bar.
