We go to Ken's about two to three times a month. We usually share the mixed seafood platter. We have never been disappointed, and even though we share, we always end up taking home enough for lunch for the two of us the next day. The seafood is always fresh, lightly breaded and fried in fresh oil, and a consistent... More

I remember my mom dragging me in here. She told me the food is great. It looked like a Bickfords from 1970-1980. But the staff is beyond friendly and attentive. Everything I have ever had on the menu was great and I can't say enough good about the place. Comfort food at a good price. They have a great clear... More

Longtime local favorite that I finally visited after all day hiking in Monson area. Extensive menu. Fish is fresh, as in not frozen and delivered daily. My broiled haddock was delicious. Server was extremely efficient, and patient with the length of time it took me to decide. Lots of attention from server, but nothing annoying. Will be going back to... More

My husband and I go to Ken's at least 2 times a month on an average. He always gets the Chicken Cordon Bleu with Fries and Cranberry sauce and I always get a chicken stir fry. I also get a side of Cranberry sauce too. I LOVE the Zucchini and tomatoes and all the other veggies in my stir fry... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch, due in part to the large number of vehicles parked out front. I had the small seafood plate which was a large selection of seafoods. Very good and very filling. My wife had a salad which she really enjoyed as well. Service was very friendly as wee other customers we chatted with,... More

This is a very popular, long term family restaurant but just not my thing. I prefer quality or quantity. The food was okay and my husband was happy with his food. The wait staff did a good job...nothing wrong with it but I would go elsewhere if possible.

Large variety of food choices. Some excellent homemade specials. Family friendly atmosphere, clean environment and generally, very good service. Budget friendly to the wallet but portions are generally exceptional! Love their turkey croquettes and their "Dirt" pudding!!..Headed there now!! Honest!
