Kevin knows how to serve yummy seafood. Try the chowder for a treat.
The place could use some decor changes.....

“All you can eat lobster”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The last Sunday of every month you can get as much lobster as you want at Kevin's. It is served buffet style and there are all the fixings to go along with it. The one problem I have with this restaurant is that it is very small. there are 2 rooms and in one of them you must go outside to get to the buffet and it is difficult to get back to your table carrying your plate and trying to deal with the doors.

“Kevins Cafe”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Average food, less than average atmosphere, no mixed drinks. No a place to go for a "dining" experience.

“Friday Nite All You Can Eat Fried Clams”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Went here Friday, July 27. We were the first to arrive for a 5:00P.M. opening. The waitress seated us quickly and gave us a couple minutes to get settled. Her timing for service was perfect all evening. This "Seafood Restaurant in the Lakes region of New Hampshire is a Hidden Gem". I ordered the Friday Nite Special of "Fried Clams.". Spectacular, Stupendous, just simply put. You have to order these if your here on a Friday. Golden Brown. Almost Hand picked with a large clam belly on all. A huge mountain of Clams arrives at the table with a moderate amount of French Fries. A small portion of cole slaw accompanies them. The waitress timed inquiring about another portion as I was getting low. The second smaller portion (but sufficient) arrived as I finished. Yes, I did get a few more a third time. If you like Fried Clams for $ 20 you can"t beat Kevins. My lady had the Homemade Crab cakes. Yes, Homemade by hand. They were stuffed with crab meat and then sautéed with a quick pan fry. Better than she has had in finer restaurants. The small restaurant filled fast and patrons had a wait to get in. Just North of Center Harbor Village NH at Lake Winnapasaukee. The menu features many tempting seafood preparations that you would be satisfied with. Kevin's does have a chicken preparation that the non seafood dinner can chose from. Make a reservation or you'll have to wait.

“The best Seafood anywhere”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

You are not going to get better seafood anywhere in this area of the Lakes region than at Kevin's Cafe. They have the best lump crab cakes we've ever had, anywhere in the country, and we've tried a lot. We either bring our friends here or get take out crab cake dinners every summer - excellent! and we are lucky to live nearby. I've also had haddock and other fish and it is perfectly prepared. Fresh, crisp perfectly cooked green beans. Tasty salads and great chowder. The chef/owner previously worked at Legal Seafood and other restaurants, and the quality shows. On Sunday once a month they have a lobster and prime rib buffet. They also will shuttle you from the Center Harbor docks if you come by boat on Lake Winni (call 603-253-75130). They are very close to Center Harbor, although the address is Moultonborough. Other reviews mention the casual atmosphere, which is perfect for the summer and for relaxed dining, although there are actually two rooms, one without the lobster tank. I live on seafood and recommend this without reservation. Delicious. My favorite seafood restaurant, NH or MA.
