I mostly come to Ken's for takeout even in high season. You can call in an order and do not have to stand in the long line ... the second window serves the takeout customers. If you are caught in the order line you can have someone stand in line and you go to the bar for some oysters or... More

We live in Maine about 30-45 minutes away. I can not tell you how many times we have driven by Ken's Place over the years on our way to Old Orchard Beach. While on vacation this past October we stopped in. A very delightful decision on our part. First impression, big parking lot with outside picnic tables and bathrooms. We... More

We discovered Ken's a couple of years ago on Trip Advisor and are very glad we did! We make the drive up to Portland 5-6 times a year as our get-away place and Ken's is right on the way. It takes us just over 2 hours to get to Ken's and it's worth the drive every time. There is plenty... More

We are fried clam connoiseurs so to speak, so felt Ken's, with their locally acclaimed breaded or battered fried clams were worth a try. Don't expect much, ambiance wise. They seem to flow with the local bare table/ cafeteria seating sort of atmosphere, which some find charming. We didn't. Short story, the fried clams(breaded) were okay, not bad but a... More

We are Full-Time RVer's and we travel from place to place about every 2 weeks. We leave reviews for every place we visit. We were going to eat here however we were looking to be served not self served. So, we decided to sit at the bar and have some Oysters and Drinks. They were fresh and everything was great... More

We drop in to Ken's regularly for lunch and always order 2 large bowls of Clam Chowder. We never know what to expect as the quality of the chowder is very inconsistent. Yesterday it was on the thick side and wonderfully spiced. Today it seemed that a significant amount of milk had been added to increase the volume in the... More

We had heard about Ken's being the place to go, so we went. There chowda was good but the rest of the sea food meal lacked flavor, they also gave us the wrong order and since we had waited some time for dinner decided try what they had gave us. They were not real busy at the time so we... More

By far our favorite seafood place! When in Maine whether we are heading way up north or staying in the Old Orchard area we always stop at Kens for the fabulous food and the spicy bloody Mary's. It's clean and well organized with LOTS of high school kids working the front, who do a great job! The scallops are SO... More
