Great food and super friendly service by Kate. I had the Seafood Chowder and it is perfect. I used to live in New England and this ranks with the best. Fish is very good too.

This is another place that has been around for decades (the company I worked for more years ago than I like to think about supplied games here back in its pool room days) sorry an old man's reminiscence, but this place has gone through multiple renovations and upgrades and still remain a favourite of locals and visitors alike. The place... More

Great food - friendly efficient service. Our only complaint is it is always too cold. Make sure you bring a warm sweater!

We were passing through downtown while in vacation and found this little jewel. The front of the restaurant didn't initially catch our attention but we didn't want to keep driving looking for another restaurant. We were extremely pleased! A small eating area in the front but a bar and larger dining area in the back with sports channel TV. The... More

I have been going to Ken's for many years and will admit that we have had only ONE not so great meal, but the other 100+, no complaints. Favs have to be fish and chips (and loads of them), clubhouse and home-made roast beef dip. Prices are reasonable and you should leave content. Breakfast is always hot and cooked the... More

First time Trying Captain Ken's went for breakfast had the breakfast special (4.49) it was great. Service was excellent, breakfast was served in a very quick time. I will definitely be back to try dinner and lunch. Great little place.

Sadly, we weren't there at the right time of day for the main draw, which seems to be fish. They gave us a good breakfast (comfort food when we got rained out early at Awenda Park), though, and for $5.00, which can't be beat. Good and abundant potato chunks (could have been a bit crispier), lovely eggs and bacon, great... More

We were part of a group of 10 people who came in for a Sunday morning breakfast with a short notice reservation. Staff was ready for us and very attentive to our needs and orders ... Nice buffet also and a la carte orders were just as delicious! I'd go back for sure!

Thank Rick O
