Some local friends of ours told us about this restaurant... Delicious! We ordered a crabmeat roll, boiled lobster, baked scallops and chicken fingers- everything tasted fresh and yummy!

“Great for Tourist families”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Adequate food, but basically a take out restaurant where you order food in a line, then seat yourself. Some food was good, some not.
I think good for kids but not if you really want a restaurant. Fairly expensive for a take out.

“Great place for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Ate there with grandchildren and daughter when staying in Old Orchard Beach. Very busy but plenty of seating at picnic tables all over the property. Simple fried food but for how busy they were service was promt and accurate. Nice setting out back at picnic table. Park like setting. Servings were large and well prepared. Excellant haddock sandwich and my daughter said the clam strips were the best she's ever had. My lobster roll was fantastic. Great place for a family picnic.

“You Ken Get Good Food Here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

We were visiting a friend in Biddeford and when planning our lunch out, he asked what kind of food we wanted. We said that seafood would be good. He (being new to the area) did some checking and was told that Ken's Place was the place to go. So we did.

Best. Decision. Possible.

The food was great. The ambience is exactly what you'd expect from a roadside seafood place called "Ken's Place." When we parked, we followed a guy into the restaurant with a full bucket of fresh oysters. We got 12 - half river, half ocean. The were outstanding. The woman at the raw bar talked about the different types of oysters and shucked them right there.

We also had a crab salad, a clam roll and a lobster roll. All were very, very good. The rolls came with fries and slaw. No free refills on the sodas, but that wasn't a biggie.

It's a tad off the beaten path - or at least it was off of our path, but it was worth the detour!!

Go there. Eat there.

You'll thank me.
