Ken's has a great comfort food menu. We have been loyal patrons for years. The portions are a great size for the prices. There is a very good breakfast buffet on the weekends.

Great food and outstanding service! Our server was Andrew and what a delightful young person, efficient as well as a great personality. We don't get there as often as we'd like but it's a definite stop when we are in the Skowhegan area.

Appeared to be a go to place for the locals. Turned out this was a good choice and Holly S took good care of us. Fried shrimp and grilled chicken were great.

Loved the lobster chowder (huge chunks of Lobster), the fried platter was perfect and the doughboy dessert to die for

Delicious fried chicken, seafood and bacon wrapped rib eye! Always moist chicken fingers and just lightly battered. Prices are a little high though.

Ate there last week. The fried clams were wicked good with a generous serving of slaw as well. My wife had fried chicken and it was great as well.
