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...More

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...More

We've past by Ken's a number of times in the past, but upon a recommendation, we had lunch there. Twice in two days. We have a few favorites for seafood when visiting Portland. Ken's is now a top spot on our list.

Restaurant was recommended by the hotel so I tried it out. You place your order and then wait to grab it before you sit down. There is also a bar in the corner. Food was good. Try the homemade tartar sauce!

Ken's is a large seafood restaurant with good, but not excellent, food. It is dependable and the food is consistent. The lobsters are good. Can get broiled or fried seafood. They have clam bellies, which can be hard to find. Chowder is very good with...More
