Diner Reviews
  • "We sat outside on the lovely patio...right next to a table that was SMOKING. Joy. I thought that wasn't allowed in Akron anymore?? Had the baked Brie (delicious)....would've had the special watermelon salad, however, our server didn't tell us about any of the salad specials (we overheard her tell the table behind us about them)...we had informed our server we needed to be out the door by 6:50, in order to see a movie (we sat for dinner at 5:30)--she said no problem...and we finally got our dinner at 6:35. We slammed down each of our $45 dinners in 15 minutes. Both plates were over salted, so much so, that my mother moved her sea bass to a side plate to eat it plain. Wasted $155. Got a $25 cert.for complaining. Gee, thanks."

  • "I have dined at Ken Stewarts many times and they never fail to impress me. The food is always first class and done to perfection. The wait staff are probably the best in the city. They are very knowledgeable and well versed about the menu and wine list. From the time you walk in until you leave they make you feel like you're a regular."

  • "We are from Arkansas and this was our second visit this year. We frequent restaurants all over the country and Ken's is definitely in our top three for food and service. Hope to be back very soon."

  • "We were very disappointed in this restaurant. My wife had Chilean sea bass. The portion was about 4 inches square and 1 inch thick for $45.00. It was set atop some type of pasta that was drenched in soy sauce and very salty. My porkchop was very good. Augratin potatoes and my creamed spinach were very salty. The wine was good, our waitress was very good. We didn't finish our salads before the entrees were placed on the table. The table was in an excellent quiet place and very private. Music was fine until they started to turn up the volume and then was annoying. For $136.00 plus tip, the food was nothing to really be remarkable and highly overpriced."

  • "Our server was fantastic... very attentive, but not disruptive (stealthy). The private booths allowed for conversation without shouting over the crowd. Food was terrific except for the over cooked lobster tail."

  • "In town visiting. Had heard the place was pretty good. But I was stunned. One of the best meals I've ever had (I am from New York!) and the best dessert I've ever tasted in the salted butterscotch mousse."

  • "LeBron and his entourage sat next to us. Very cool ! Food is excellent - I like KSG because it's always consistently good, and prefer it over Tre Belle / the Lodge."

  • "To make a long story short, our reservations were for 7 and they picked us up at 7:35. The only table they had was right at the entrance of the kitchen. Loud and busy. The wine and food was spectacular."

  • "My wife and I went here for our anniversary. It was packed with a lot of golfers and golf fans because it was the weekend of the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone CC. It was loud and I was surprised at the lack of a formal dress code. Several people were there in shorts and a few even continued to wear their hats! This is supposed to be an upscale restaurant. The food was good (but not great) and the service was better than average, but I would go somewhere else for a really "romantic" dining experience."

  • "Our overall experience at KS Grill was top notch. Calamari app was lightly breaded and served with a hot pepper vinegar delicious! House salad and the pear and fig salad were cold crisp and fresh...entrees followed and were outstanding...I got the 1 lb crab stuffed lobster tail and my date enjoyed the featured blackened swordfish. Service was seamless...great night! Thank you....we enjoyed the cocktails prepared for us as well..."

  • "My wife and I ate here on a Saturday night at 5PM. Dining room was empty except for 2 other couples. Our waitress was fantastic. Just the right amount of service without being pushy. We both got the filet at $45 each. Steak was cooked perfectly with a side of onion straws. Dessert was a type of chocolate cake which seemed to have way too much flour. It was the only disappointing part of the meal. Decore seems to be out of the 70's with many disturbing looking paintings hanging on the walls and in the booths. While we enjoyed ourselves we both agreed that this place is not worth the price and that we would not choose to come here again."

  • "Another Akron Gem ... Ken Stewart's is the finest dining establishment in the area. Always great, but this time our server was so annoying we were ready to move to another table. You don't want to feel rushed when paying the minimum of a Benjamin to have a nice romantic dinner. But we couldn't even take a sip of our drink order before hearing the specials. We both had the Thai Seafood Stir-Fry which was amazing and a house salad with their signature White French dressing that was big enough to split. Too full for dessert, but the bread pudding is also a KSG classic. We will make sure we don't have the same server next time we come back, which is too bad that this affected the rating."

  • "We had an excellent dinner this week. Our group had a variety of seafood and steak, as well as an off-the-menu chicken marsala. All were greatly enjoyed, the staff was attentive yet allowed us to enjoy our meal at our pace. Wonderful experience, worth the price every time."

  • "Another great dining experience at KSG. The wild mushroom toast was fabulous!! We were thinking that maybe the prices are getting a little out of hand, that was until we had finished. It's easy to see, the old saying "you get what you pay for" definitely applies here also. All in all...Excellent!"

  • "Friday night Happy Hour is not to miss. Fantastic selection of half price appetizers in the lounge along with martini specials. What could be better in Northeast Ohio? The Jumbo Lump Crabcake was filled with just that - jumbo lump crab. Delicious. Attentive and friendly servers. Great atmosphere. Will absolutely return soon!"

  • "The food here is fabulous, the best tasting I've had. This would be a great place for foodies. We split a Cesar Salad and it was plenty. We also split the scalloped potatoes and couldn't finish them all, even though they were wonderful. The Chilean Sea Bass was very good as was the three filet's each prepared differently. We shared with each other everyone like everything. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "I must say out of all the times I have dined here at minimum 10 times,my filet and dessert was not the best. My filet was tender but very dry and no flavor. My peanut butter bomber was room temperature, normally it's warm and melting in your mouth with every bite. "

Tends to be a bit expensive for groups but with that realization I would recommend the steaks and lamb. Previous experience"

  • "We attended Mother's day brunch, and it was a great experience. It was not a buffet, but there were specific brunch selections on the special menu. My son ordered the ham selection, Mom ordered the french toast selection, and I ordered the eggs Benedict with lump crab selection. All were delicious. The noise level was low. Our server was personable and very attentive. It was a great overall experience. "

  • "I had the steak trio. The cuts of meats were amazing and the toppings tasted incredible. I was able to switch one of the toppings for a sun dried tomato butter... melted in my mouth...sent me to heaven. "

  • "I've had $150 meals where I thought "I can't wait to go back" so I'm fine spending the money on a great meal, but this was not worth it. The steak (with no side) was $46. I was expecting something amazing, but ended up with a quality cut of meat that was very bland. $9 to add a baked potato? Come on. We sat outside and the chairs looked and felt like cheap Walmart lawn chairs. At $46 for a steak, buy some better furniture! While we ate outside, an employee stood nearby smoking and drinking while playing with his ipad and listening to music. Not cool. Overall, the food was decent and the restaurant wasn't bad, but if I'm going to pay that much money, I'll find a better place next time."

  • "There are so many great restaurants in our area to try we rarely visit the same restaurant twice. Our meal was exquisite and our service was even better. We will be back! The front of the house service was the best we have experienced. Our server was the knidest, caring person I have ever encountered in a restaurant."

  • "It was our first visit to Ken Stewart's. Our server was very informative, attentive, and friendly. The food was good, but my husband and I both felt it was overpriced. He got a steak and I ordered the chicken. We both had a salad and potatoes. We shared creme brulee for dessert. We did not have drinks; I ordered ice tea and he had a beer. Our total with tip was a little over $150.00."

  • "My wife and I made a pact to go out once a month and leave the kids at home, so we're trying all the area restaurants. KSG was a great place -- good atmosphere, the table felt private, and the service was great. There are a lot of options on the menu, and although it's expensive, dinner was fabulous. It's great for a special occasion."

  • "If you are looking for a spot to celebrate a special time Ken Stewart's Grille is the destination. Kay, our waitress, welcomed us to the grille and did make the evening special. Ken Stewart's has special items such as the Akron chowder. Traditional items like filets and scallops are prepared with care seasoned to please most. The cocktails are prepared according to your wishes. The chocolate chip bread pudding was just the tip of the desert offerings. All was noteworthy."

  • "I took my wife to Ken Stewart's Grille for her birthday. We had been there before. The atmosphere was great, the noise was low, the food and service were excellent. It is definitely pricey (I ordered one of the specials without realizing it was $66.95), but it's definitely worth the experience. We will return."

  • "Service was excellent..way too many specials that are recited to the customer. My sea bass with pumpkin seed crust and spaghetti squash in a sage butter was excellent. Trio of beef very good. Truffled fries...parmesaned but could not see or taste any truffles. Oysters very cold but not very plump at all. House salad was perfect."

  • "We had a very nice, timely and quiet dinner. I requested a quiet table as my partner is legally deaf and it's often hard for us to communicate in a noisy restaurant. We were given a quiet table. My only complaint is that the table was so small we could hardly move. Every plate had to be removed so the next on would fit on, meaning the server had to come to the table often."

  • "All my husband and I wanted to do to top off the evening on Valentine's Day was to have dessert and a night cap somewhere. Luckily, I remembered I had a gift certificate and made reservations for just that. I made reservations online and found it very easy. I liked that you gave a choice of sitting in the main dining area or the lounge. We chose the lounge for this occasion and really enjoyed ourselves. Also, I'd like to mention that your desserts were delicious and I give you kudos for giving "healthy" portions, for a lack of a better word, than just a "sliver" as we have received at other restaurants. And to top off the evening, our server was sweet & charming. It was a wonderful way to end our evening. We will return. Thank you."
