Kenny Ward's reviews from OpenTable diners

    My steak was cooked exactly as I asked and it melted in my mouth.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/7/2012
    The server brought out these little planks of wood and stated that the steaks were going to come out on sizzling platters. They brought out our steaks on super hot plates, but the planks were not big enough to keep the plates from wobbling, so everytime you went to cut your steak you were risking injury. The steaks were very tender and cooked properly but seemed very underseasoned. The crab soup was wonderful. I just don't know if the cost was justified for the whole meal.

    The entree was delicious, however, the cost of the entree for the amount of food you receive will cause me not to return.

    A quiet Friday night, which was a little surprising. Service was attentive and knowledgable, while the food was very good, if a little over-priced. Great menu, something for everyone and a good selection of Gulf Coast favorites. The presentation was excellent. The wine list had a wide range of bottles, including a favorite. A nice little neighborhood spot in Ocean Springs.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/9/2012
    The atmosphere was in the nature of a neighborhood restaurant from the quaint surroundings of the dining area to the Chef/Owner/Namesake introducing himself at the table to inquire of any needs. The food was excellent. The steaks were proclaimed by the establishment to be award winning and indeed they were. From the crab cakes to the scallops, the seafood was also outstanding. We will certainly return for an encore presentation when we venture back to the Biloxi area.

    The food was sort of bland and definitely not worth the price. If you want steak or seafood, there are far better places for both in OS and biloxi. I don't expect fried seafood at a place like this. Also, their martinis are too sweet and girly. It's a cozy little place, but nothing special about the atmosphere. It was an average experience at best.

    Kenny Ward's is a staple for my family. We love the restaurant for its amazing steak and seafood. I recommend the surf and turf with the filet mignon and a crab cake. Most certainly the best crab cake on the coast!

    My husband and I went for my birthday and it was fantastic! THE best crab cakes I've ever had and there's a reason Kenny Ward's has won 'best steak in town' for years. It will melt in your mouth! We were given the raspberry and blueberry trifle for dessert and it was fabulous! Altogether, a wonderful experience!

    We enjoyed our meal and the waitress did a good job handling the bottle of wine we sent back, willing to replace the bottle. Seemed to have too many waiters, way more than the number of customers. It was somewhat annoying. Good steaks!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/23/2011
    Oh, my goodness!! Terribly overpriced!! My husband & I are foodies who have no problem paying top dollar for fine dining, but this was so disappointing after reading such sterling reviews!! There were 10 people at 7:30 on a Saturday night there when we dined. The kitchen messed up our steak prep instructions even though my husband & I gave IDENTICAL orders! This could be somewhat forgivable if the restaurant had been very busy, but as I stated, there were 10 people. Our salads & "twice baked potatoes" were also sad offerings with little imagination or presentation. Lastly, our wine pour was so sparse that I waited until our steaks arrived so that I wouldn't run out; it was also warm, not slightly chilled as preferred. Never again.

  • Quiet Dinner for two?? hmmm
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/24/2011
    For a romantic dinner for two I would not suggest this place. It is small and we happened to come when they had a private party. So needless to say the environment was very loud. If you are looking for a private and quiet dining for two I would not suggest this place. For a "fine dining" resturant the table was not set up properly. Napkins set up backwards, salad fork the same size as the dinner. The service was good and very polite but not educated in fine dining serving. Over all it was very good.

  • The resturant was very noisy.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/11/2011
    The resturant was very noisy. We were hoping to have a quiet romatic dinner, but it was more like a bar than a resturant. Also, the price did not match the food quality. Our steak was more fat than meat. Our steaks tasted like gas and it was perfectly cooked on the inside but charcoal on the outside. My potato was cold. The food was okay. When we booked the reservation at Kenny Ward's we assumed that the quality would be better. The sign out front states "voted best steak on the coast". I beg to differ. Our service on the other hand was outstanding. Our waitress was very polite and very well-mannered. Overall I would give this resturant on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being excellent a 4.

    OUTSTANDING fillet Mignon!!! I have traveled all over the world and eaten at the best steak houses around, Morton's, Ruth's Chris, Shula's, Gallagher's, you name it, from New York to LA, Paris to Rome. You won't find a better Steak! I am not a local to Ocean Springs, just happened to find this using Open Table, thought I'd give it a try? MAN, I AM GLAD I DID!!!!

    I had seen the restaurant featured some time ago on Channel 13 TV and had been planning to check it out for some time. The food was excellent - we had the scallops and blackened redfish and were delighted with them both. I highly recommend for a special occasion!

    This was our first visit to Kenny Ward's, recommended by a friend. Nice atmosphere and the martini menu is great! Dinner was very good, cooked perfectly (I had filet mignon and my husband had the bacon wrapped scallops). I do think it was a bit overpriced but an enjoyable meal.
