pretty average food. Steak was a big piece of meat, delicious, but a little overcooked. Basically bad american food that's pretty expensive. Zero ambiance. Feels like a cafeteria.

It’s been a while since we’ve dined at Ken’s. This was our first time back since the renovations. The renovations are fine, but the dining room reminds me of an event hall. I think they could improve on the ambiance. Service was good, although our server forgot to bring my French onion soup. When I asked about it she got it right away and they took the soup off the bill. That wasn’t necessary, but thought that was very kind. We had Ribeye steaks, salads, French fries and green beans. The steaks were amazing! Cooked and seasoned perfectly. The quality of the food was a great value. We’ll go back soon.

The restaurant has very little atmosphere. There aren’t even any pictures on the walls. Food was okay, not outstanding. It was very quiet, when we were there and server was attentive and pleasant.

New Year's Eve dinner for 3. Got the calamari appetizer to share. Daughter had scallops with mushroom risotto; son and I both had the baked scrod.

All very tasty - with attentive but not overbearing service. Will definitely go back soon, I hope!

Our concern was the tables were extremely close together to others and with the raging Covid surge, we were a bit concerned. We asked to change to a more open table but was not able to be accommodated. Hopefully everyone stays safe. The positive side was all staff wore masks.

Great steaks and Cesar salads. Iconic metro west dining establishment that has an ambiance few can compete with. If it’s not broken don’t fix it! Kens is in my top 5 restaurants without a doubt

Had not so good French onion soup-weak broth and only a few slivers of onion - not half as good as it used to be-will not be going back

We were in the "overflow room." It hasn't been updated like the other spaces and it's a bit tired. Good food and service though.

The steak and salmon and drinks were fine, as was Brussels sprouts and scallops appetizer.
But, wife’s green beans were likely frozen and unseasoned-plain for a restaurant of this reputation in area.

We have been to Ken's multiple times now and always have a great experience. The menu isn't huge but they are fantastic at what they make. There are a number of sides and apps to chose from. There are just enough options between pasta, seafood, steak and salads.

Mice running through the dining room. Brought to the attention of management, little response. Was told, "Thanks for letting us know!"

Embarrassing, in that we had international guests there for a good American Steakhouse experience. Was far from it.

Excellent opportunity for my 89 year old Mother In Law. Great handicap access and plenty of her contemporaries to dine with. Food was wonderful. She enjoyed Scallops with Bacon and Lobster Bisque which was nice and creamy and easy for her to swallow. The Chocolate Mousse capped of her orgasmic experience! Thanks Ken's for not sacrificing quality!

First of all, it was a very important family dinner as it was the night before my ordination. We hadn't seen each other in a few months, they're from Maine, so this was a very special meal. Brianna(sp?) was fantastic! She answered all the questions put to her with her honest opinions and saw to it that we were very well taken care of. She was as wonderful as the meal itself. Thank you Brianna(sp?) for making this very special occasion even more special. We can't wait to come back!

We were happy to get a last minute reservation. Ken’s has a lot of dining space. :) We ordered onion rings (the best part of dinner), prime rib king cut (bland and cool temp), kids chicken parm (too much thyme?), kids mac and cheese (fine because it’s just Kraft which is what they like but was cold), clam chowder (2nd best part of dinner), side salad had no dressing for 10 minutes and was fine, sides of broccoli, green beans, and corn were all watery tasting. There have been a lot of positive reviews on our local Facebook pages and I was really looking forward to this evening. We didn’t complain because everything was accurate and edible and with three children we didn’t have time for anything to be remade anyway. Pretty good service but maybe I’ll try again at lunch.

This is an ‘old time’ well established restaurant of which few remain! The food and service were excellent; but if we had any criticism it would be the decor. We sat in the middle dining room which was rather stark with its white walls and white tablecloths. We thought the Hanna’s might be in a transition period whereby they are in the process of getting artwork for the walls? It’s a small point but would make the area much more cozy and appealing. Overall we’d say this is a landmark restaurant that seems to not deteriorate in its serving of great traditional dishes with a waitstaff of impeccable merit. Highly recommended!

We hadn’t been to Ken’s in a while,and noticed a HUGE improvement in the decor. The place looked great. The food was excellent. Ken’s salads are delish, highly recommended. I had the salmon and my wife the filet mignon. Both cooked perfectly. Love that salad and side dish are included in most meals. The baked potato was great, something you don’t always find at restaurants around town. Crusty and perfect.

And service was as good as I’ve ever had…anywhere, no exaggeration. Given the labor shortage at many restaurants, I was impressed with the level of service. Waitress was very responsive. Drinks came out quickly; same for salads and bread, and entrees were timely as well. A total pleasure. All in all, a great dinner. We will definitely be back.

Love Ken’s Steakhouse dressing and wanted to see the place. Liked the side dishes, but the meat was chewy and fatty (especially for a “prime” cut).
Service was rushed and the server forgot to bring the salad.

I am happy to say - they're officially back on their game !
A few years back prior to remodel...food was just OK and I really stopped going and now in most recent times the lot is full and everyone is really loving it, or at least all of the people that I know. I will definitely make it one that is back on our regular dining list.

Very happy with quality and service - nice job.
