Good seafood, great chowder often crowded but worth the wait. Nice raw bar, cocktails available. Just remember to request the homemade tartar sauce otherwise you will get packaged. Best before or after the tourist season, otherwise there is a line out the door. Counter service only.

We ate at Ken's multiple times during our stay in southern Maine. The quality of the seafood there is outstanding and at prices that are consistently lower than many other places in the area. This is a local gem not to be missed.

It's no wonder that they keep winning awards for their food. They're doing it right.

We were visiting the area and drove past last night but the line was all the way to the street. Came back tonight, just as busy and found it was the last night open for the season and all the locals were eating there. Took the advice of a regular customer in line and ordered the Fisherman's Platter to split between the two of us. We couldn't finish it. I think 4 people could have eaten off that gigantic serving. Very good and filling.

We managed to go the last weekend they were open for the season. It was packed. We had battered clam strips, broiled scallops, chowder, and lobster stew. All was tasty. The stew was missing flavor, it needed seasoning, otherwise nice chunks of lobster. Quite a bit of a wait, but understandable.

Unplanned stop - have driven by several times! We were planning take out but decided to eat in o have some beverages. The ladies taking orders were very good! The lobster roll plate with fries which was very good. We also had some clams that were good too! Kids had ice cream that made them very happy! It was a totally surprise! It was great!
