“A little small town bar/restaurant”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Good food, especially the chowder. Take out, sit in the informal diner, or outback a little more formal with TVs (sports)

“Spare yourself disappointment.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Husband and I came in to captain Kens for the fish and chips as the reviews here were outstanding. What an utter disappointment! Fish and chips were so soggy. We are shocked that this restaurant has survived this long and received such awesome reviews being a "Fish and Chips" specialty!!
Save your money and find somewhere else to have your fish and chips.
Pub in the back was very cool however. Maybe just go there for a pint if your in Penetanguishene.

“Comfort Food”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Went to Kens in March 2013 - drove buy, saw the sign for fish and chips and took a flyer
Glad I did,
People are great, super friendly
Fish and chips was right on the money - large portions, not greasy and fairly priced
Service was quick
Found it refreshing from the big chains

“Best Fish&Chips Around, and Now a Beautiful Bar too!!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

I have enjoyed Captain Kens Fish and Chips since I was a kid, however, now I enjoy this place a a relaxing place to grab a drink as well. The renovations on the bar area have greatly improved the overall look of the restaurant and bar! It's beautiful now and so so so nice to have somewhere to go in Penetang.

Food - Always fresh, tasty, crispy, and deer fried to perfection!

Atmosphere - Perfect for a fish and chips bar! Long bar to sit at or a selection of tables in quieter or louder areas.

Service - Staff are always friendly and familiar. Captain Ken himself is also often there as well as his daughter Katie who are always smiling and making time to chat with customers.

All in all, always an enjoyable experience!
