Always try to stop in for a quick bite to eat when we're in the area. Bartender is very friendly, March Madness on the big screen, and the food is great! It would be nice to have Keno here.

This is a locals spot. Locals who have lived in the area for a very long time who probably come back because it's really a bar with a menu. The prices are comparable to fine restaurants in the area but the value is not. A house salad should be more than chopped iceberg lettuce with one tomato slice and a... More

Have been coming here on and off for several years. Guess we keep revisiting this place hoping that the overall quality will return to what it once was. The food used to be much better but there seems to have been a steady decline in the overall quality and portion size. Clam chowder is excellent. The service is good. The... More

Food was good and service was good. It was my first time at this restaurant and I would probably eat here again.

Second time eating at Kent's. First time I had the clam boil - Delicious, healthy serving. Second time, a couple of months later, clam boil was pricey so I went with the baked scrod. Dinner was small and a little dry. Not worth it. Adequate service and atmosphere.

The scallops were cut then cut again to make about... More

If you're looking for a small meal, this is the place for you. The portions are a bit sparse, but tasty. The ambiance is what might be called early school house. The servers are not overly friendly. Thus they don't interrupt conversations with with questions like, "Would you like some more water?"

Food is just okay to pretty good, but the entrance is the worst smelling stink, I can't believe the owner don't do something about it. This is where the customers get the first impression on a place. So smarten up and do something about this problem and I think you'll see business pick up.

We came here as it was closest to our hotel. They had trouble with our drink order I guess it was too fancy (an old fashioned with makers mark). I ordered the fish and chips and lobster bisque. I found the bisque to be fishy. My fish was wonderful my chips were soggy The hubby got a steak which he... More
