A word from Kenny's Wood Fired Grill
Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is reminiscent of a 1940’s Chicago style chophouse with a classy, relaxed and warm atmosphere featuring the finest wood grilled seafood and meats. Our well rounded menu represents the traditional American classics with an emphasis on Kenny’s specialty, New England style seafood. And, while you are waiting for your table in the dining room you can enjoy the energetic “goose bar” sipping on a Grey Goose™ martini poured from our signature frozen tap system or a great glass of wine.

    We started off with appetizers. The taco nachos and the coconut shrimp were excellent. We both had steaks and they were cooked perfectly and delicious. The dessert was creme brule and was the best I've had. Overall it was a great experience, but was a little pricey.

    Fun atmoshphere, but wrong choice for a romantic anniversary dinner, as noise level was very loud. Fabulous filet, cold martinis (swapping out for freshly frosted glasses a nice touch). Looked forward to the crab cake, but bit into several large bits of shell. Very friendly and attentive service.

    We went to Kenny's with friends for a celebratory dinner. We were seated on time and our waitress, Katie, was awesome. With Grey Goose on tap, how can you go wrong? Two people ordered the redfish that was outstanding. One had the braised short rib, which was melt in your mouth delicious, and the other ordered the double cut pork chop. Fabulous all the way around! Kenny's is consistently good and always a pleasurable experience.

    Finally got to go here, always hard to get a reservation, and ultimately was very disappointed. Service was 5 star, top notch but my NY Strip couldn't have been any more ordinary and disappointing. It had such promise with the way it was described in the menu and by the waiter but unfortunately my weekend Tom Thumb BBQ steaks tasted far better. Note that I mentioned it to the waiter and he was kind enough to give me a $20 gift card to "make it right on your next visit".

    Reservations on a Friday @ 7:30, did not have to wait. Zack our server was excellent. Cocktails very good. I was disappointed in my rib-eye steak, no real favor everything else was very good (all our sides), my dates sea bass was great. Zack did asked me if he could bring out something to replace my steak, but I was too full at that time. Zack offered us dessert.

    Our server was outstanding and classy, especially when she politely subdued the intoxicated woman at the table next to ours. Menu had a good variety of wines. Generous portion sizes on the pork chop and two steaks we ordered--mac 'n cheese sides were indeed cheesy, but good. No complaints on the baked potato. All of the proteins were cooked just the way we asked. Pork chop was juicy and flavorful. My ribeye was seasoned nicely and a perfect medium rare. Did a round of appetizers of lobster deviled eggs, wood grilled oysters and tenderloin crostini. All highly recommended, but the wood grilled oysters were especially tasty. Crostini were a little awkward, because of the size of the cut. Overall? Amazing. We will be back.

    We arrived at 8pm and from the moment we were seated the experience was top notch. Our waitress, Renee, made our dinner one of the best ever. Kenny's lives up to its reputation for being accommodating and the food is outstanding. The menu includes a combination of meats and seafood, plus a large number of creative appetizers. The wine list is not overbearing and has many good selections, and there are several very good mixed drinks to get started. The Ahi Tuna Nacho and Tenderloin Crostini apps are both awesome and quite large. Everything we ate was great - filet special with crab cake, grilled shrimp and scallops, potato cakes, mac & cheese, key lime pie and brownie. The individual bread loafs served to each diner might be the best part!

    My girlfriend and I decided to visit Kenny's to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. The service was excellent and the food was spectacular. Kenny's was a great place to have a romantic dinner/lunch/brunch with your significant other. The drinks were great as well, I was very happy to have an Alaskan Amber and my girlfriend's bloody mary was mixed to perfection.

    This was the first time my service wasn't 5 star. I absolutely love the Kenny's entire chain but that night our server was a bit overwhelmed I believe. He was an older gentleman that was a lot slower to respond than a party of 4 would have liked. Our cocktails came the same time our appetizers arrived (which made us think he had forgot our first order of drinks) and then our meal came with a table full of empty plates. Eeek! :-/ He was a likable guy but his service was rather meager. I will return as I'm an avid Kenny's diner but maybe I'll just stick to the bar!

    This was our first visit to Kenny's. We were celebrating our birthday. We sat at the bar for a cocktail & Alex was incredible. He changed my martini glass 3 times to a chilled glass! Carrie was our server & she did a fantastic job as well. Food was fantastic and only outdone by the incredible level of service. Highly recommend this place!

    After making a reservation well in advance, we were a bit disappointed. The red fish which was highly recommended was overly seasoned and you really couldn't taste the fish. The pork chop was good and the oyster appetizer (which reminded us of New Orleans char-grilled oysters) was also very good.

    The food was amazing: the popovers are addictive, the ahi tuna nachos are delicious, and the evening's special carne asada blew my mind. I asked our waiter (who was also outstanding) to surprise me between the asparagus and corn for my side, so he really surprised me and brought BOTH! We had 6 girls and a toddler with us and he managed everything like a pro despite a packed house. LOVED everything about it!

    They have a "can-do" attitude that is refreshing. Portions are ample. You never feel like they are trying to skimp on anything. Service of food was timed just right. It is a little loud in there which is a shame as so many eateries feel like they have to have "energy" in the room in their design.

    We celebrated our son's 15th bday at Kenny's. His pick. Food was terrific, service was excellent. They are great with special requests too. This is one of our favorite spots because it is always excellent and everyone in our family has a menu favorite. The pork chop is my son's! All the little extras like the grey goose on tap, the martini glass exchange, and giving our son a gift card to return...just to say Happy Bday.

    We hadn't been to Kenny's in a while and we are happy we went back! There are some new items on the menu and we were not disappointed at all. Our server was awesome and super efficient (never had an empty drink glass, checked on us just enough to not be annoying) and had great suggestions. Everything we had was served as we requested and very flavorful. The best thing is that it's not overpriced. The only bad thing is that the restaurant is pretty small so it's hard to get a reservation. I would definitely recommend going here for any occasion.

    This is a great place to take folks who aren't into a meal that's too "fru fru", Yet still has enough variety for foodies to feel as though they're not wasting their time. The menu is well thought out. There's something for everyone. My kids are pretty particular, and they really enjoyed it as well. You won't have any regrets bringing ANYONE here.

The only time we could get in on a Sunday was at 4:30 and by 5 it was already packed. I've never had a bad meal here and I love how the servers are there to please the customer.
