Description: With Age comes great things..Ken's steak house has been serving Metro-West since 1935. Ken and Florence Hanna had a sound formula for success: Good quality food at reasonable prices, an honest drink and a good cup of coffee. Guests always receive prompt, courteous, attentive service. The prime and choice cuts of beef and the fresh seafood found at Ken's has set a standard of quality that is unparalleled.

Walking into Ken's was like going back to the 1970's, in every respect.
The service was poor and inept and the food simply unpleasant.
The starter of Baked Camembert was burnt and to disguise this it was smothered with some sort of horrible raspberry sauce and the Clam Chowder was tasteless.
To be fair, the actual steaks were fine but the accompanying Butternut Squash was just 'mush', it quite easily could have been baby food, but for the fact it had no flavour.
Ken really needs to buck his ideas up if he seriously wants to compete with even mediocre steakhouses.
My advice would be to give Ken's Steakhouse a wide birth.
($69 for 2 excluding drinks a service)

I was disappointed. I thought that a storied name such as Ken's would be a good find, but honestly have had better steaks at the chains. It was a tad overcooked, the mashed potatoes were just that, mashed potatoes and the squash was mashed, not a favorite of mine. The onion bread was hot and tasty, and the lobster bisque was OK. For your money, skip it, not worth it.

Great service. Food was just ok. Roast beef was tasteless. Drinks were almost double what you would expect to pay anywhere comparable around Natick. They might as well say we don't want customers who want to have a drink with their meal. Riding on their reputation.

Listening to 96.9 radio each day and hearing the great reviews for Ken's I was very very disappointed. I had been there over 15 years ago and it is still stuck in the era but not in a good way. The waiter was not very nice...the food was really poor quality. Steak special with carrots..Got squash by mistake which was pureed almost like baby food in a small cup containing approximately two tablespoons of mush. Tasted bad. Told the waiter we ordered carrots not squash and he took away the squash and replaced with carrots. Never apologized, just stuck his hand in our plate and grabbed the tiny spoonful of squash away. . Why would he take away the two spoonfuls of squash and not just bring the carrots instead. 6 pieces of sliced carrots. This was so awful that I cannot even tell you. All I can say is that I left and went to Legal Sea Food across the street.
