A word from Ken's Steak House
With Age comes great things..Ken's steak house has been serving Metro-West since 1935. Ken and Florence Hanna had a sound formula for success: Good quality food at reasonable prices, an honest drink and a good cup of coffee. Guests always receive prompt, courteous, attentive service. The prime and choice cuts of beef and the fresh seafood found at Ken's has set a standard of quality that is unparalleled.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I have been there three or four times this past year. Every time was much better then this. It was a slow night. The food was mediocre at best. The waitress appeared to have no training. At dessert there were empty glasses, cocktail sauce from the appetizer, salad plates etc...in my opinion, having waited table for years this should never happen. She was back and forth several times because she forgot things, just look around and clean your table! SOGGY salad, no excuse. Ken's was always famous for their ""included" crisp iceberg salad with their famous dressing which is still delicious. Not the worst food but tasteless. Sadly, we probably won't be returning."

  • "We took our friends out to Ken's for dinner. It was the perfect "special" dining experience. The waiter could not have been more attentive. Our meals were delicious. I am not a steak eater so I ordered the fish and it was perfect. The steak eaters were also very pleased with their meals. Our friends were very pleased with the experience and it definitely felt special."

  • "My ribeye was overcooked and about 1/8 thick. Ken's used to be known for excellent steaks. I told my waitress (Katherine) that my steak was a bit gristly and I would need a steak knife. No problem. This went right over her head. I hate sending food back, as do most people, so the chef should get it right the first time. If management is telling them to serve 1/8 ribeye's, one of the most expensive meals on the menu, then the problem isn't in the kitchen. I always loved eating there and we were very disappointed. What happened to the old Ken's?"

  • "Ken's steakhouse is a traditional American steakhouse. The setup is great for family gathering and special occasion; not really for romantic outings. Service is good. Good steak and seafood but the price is not cheap. I like their coffee."

  • "We went here in a Groupon and it's a good thing. I would most likely not return and have to pay the full price. The food was ok. Appetizer was delicious, however being a steak house, I was very disappointed in my meal. It's almost as if the steak tasted freezer-burn?!"

  • "We had a group of 11 people with a mix of adults and teens. The menu was broad enough to accommodate the varying likes of everyone. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Everyone left full and satisfied."

  • "The only food that was acceptable even though it was the size of a half dollar was the crab cake as the appetizer. My husband and I both got the special of the day "Land and Sea". It was suppose to be steak cooked to your desire with a demi-glaze and a stuffed lobster tail. The "steak" was pot roast. The "demi-glaze" was very runny gravy and the stuffed lobster tail was a frozen stuffed lobster tail. The salad that was suppose to be "the bomb" was swimming in dressing. The waitstaff were fantastic though."

  • "We had dinner at Ken's on a Friday night. No problem getting seated on time, service was excellent, and food was very good. The ambience and decor is in desperate need of an update - it's basically the 60's in the room. Add to that the karaoke quality singer on the bar and it brings the score down. Not a bad night, but Ken's could be better."

  • "Six of us went to Ken's for the dinner graduation of our niece who wanted "steak"!! One person on our party has MSG intolerance. Apparently all the steak options were out except for the prime rib. Many of us had the prime rib (including one King cut), and they were all delicious and cooked as we wished. Ken's will have high marks for that. The wine list was limited but we found an acceptable Pinot Noir. Overall a good meL and evening especially since we were staying in the Framingham area. "

  • "Great steaks cooked exactly as we ordered....that's a big plus, rarely does that happen! Customer service was top notch and a very nice atmosphere. Prices were a bit toward the top end, but the quality of the meals was well worth it!"

  • "We went to Ken's Steakhouse to celebrate my son's college graduation. Our reservation was honored and we were seated at a nice roomy table. The service was good. The decor is dated but not so bad that it would ruin a meal. The problem here is the food. My salad was drenched with dressing-ordering the dressing on the side would be my recommendation. I order the filet and was cooked ok but it was tasteless. It had no seasoning at all and it was not a flavorful piece of meat. The fact that it came with sides is better than a lot of other steak places but the green beans used were frozen and served mushy. The baked potato was fine and my sons liked their mashed potatoes and fries. I do not live in this area but if I did, I would not go back. "

  • "I had a fish and scallop dinner scallops were good fish tasted like it was right out of the freezer with a mixture of whatever. Didn't taste like fish. We were a total of 7 diners. Most were not happy with the quality of food. We will take this restaurant of our list of yearly places to eat"

  • "Ken's has the reputation of having great food. The prime rib was not exceptional, nor were the side vegetables. The stuffed mushrooms were the bright spot on the menu, but not enough to warrent a return trip."

  • "We were a group of 6 for a 4pm Mother's Day dinner. We like Ken's for that special occasion dinner. Everyone in the party enjoyed the food and drink. Waitress was very good but also very busy. Interior has that old school charm and feeling. Only downsize might be that when crowded the noise level is high. We'll be back!"

  • "It was my son's graduation day and mother's day. I looked at the website and picked this restaurant because of the menu. They never indicated on the website or when I made the reservation that there was a limited menu that day. Very limited options."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We needed a place in the Framingham for Mother's Day and wanted to make sure we could get a reservation, so we chose Ken's. The website made no mention of Mother's Day, so after viewing the regular menu we made a reservation. It turned out all we had to choose from was an overpriced menu with 6 entrees. Items were at least $5 more than n the regular menu. The "infamous" salad was a major letdown w/ iceberg lettuce, one tomato and 3 onions. Sides were portioned into small ramekins. Literally, three spoonfuls of butternut squash is all you can spare? The chicken saltimboca was listed with proscuitto and cheese, neither of which were on the entree when it arrived. And be prepared to pay $9 for a piece of birthday cake. We won't be returning!"

  • "celebrated early mother's day since my mom love the prime rib here and Wednesdays when they have the special deal. the Delmonico steak comments from the other guests were okay since it had gravy on it as a sauce when it should just be grilled until cooked to the customers order."

  • "We were so looking forward to our dinner at Ken's. Both had not been there for several years. Still a kickback to the 80's, but besides, it is a "Steak House" and the steaks disappointed to a point where we both agreed, a chain restaurant would have been a better choice. The first steak of one diner had to be returned, 1) overcooked; 2) was definitely wrong cut and the waiter pushed off as it shrunk due to overcooking, not the case. Companion diner ended up eating alone. The service was very slow. From the beginning it took much too long for someone to greet us at the table and at least offer water. A reservation was not necessary this evening. We will not be returning to Ken's as there are better choices in the metro west area."

  • "Our family recently celebrated a Birthday at Ken's on a Sunday. We made reservations for 1pm when they opened. Though initial service was a bit slow, the waitresses were very pleasant and helpful, and more than made up for it with quick service and lots of attention for the rest of the meal. Onion rings a must! Home made and juicy hot!! Clam chowder, the best. My father is a fussy person and hasn't been able to find a really good Prime Rib anywhere in a long time...WOW, they made the grade! He was VERY PLEASED. Also, the Chateaubriand, Baked Scallops, and Swordfish Kabobs, were perfectly cooked and served piping hot. Atmosphere was old world but cozy, and leather chairs were a comfortable surprise. We'll definitely go back."

  • "When booking my reservation online, I stated that I would need a high chair and that it was my husband's birthday. Upon entering holding my 1 year old, I was asked if I would need a high chair. I feel that I took the time to write that, the high chair should have already have been at the table. My husband and I then had to move the chairs around, removing one to a corner ourselves. That is something the staff should have taken care of. After we were done our meal, we sat for a lengthy time with our plates in front of us before our server finally came over to box them up. Not a mention of the birthday. The food was fantastic but I would not go here with a child. There was also nowhere to change my son in the ladies room. "

  • "The escargot and shrimp cocktail were excellent. The salads were kind of boring...the garden salad only had lettuce and a tomoato and the ceasar salad was just ok. The prime rib and steak were good, the pasta was ok. Dinner was very pricey."

  • "This was our first and sorry to say our last venture to this venerable institution. When I go to a restaurant the has steak house in it's name I expect a damn good steak. That was not the case here. The steak was okay but nothing more than something I could have done at home. My wife had to send her steak back because it was rare when she asked for medium. For a place that has been in business since 1935 you should be getting it right on the first try. Prices were reasonable and the restaurant had a nice vibe to it as tables were filled with families and couples enjoying a night out. We had two of the deserts, the chocolate flour less torte and the Tiramisu. Both were excellent"

  • "The food was excellent, stuffed mushrooms were the best I've ever had. The service was fantastic, Dominique, our waitress, was fantastic, extremely professional, friendly and right there when we needed her but in the background when we didn't. She should be commended for her work. This was a wonderful experience. "

  • "The waitress was not tentative and the furniture was dirty and old. This place is in some desperate need for a re model. I was really glad I had a groupon because I did not feel the food was worth the price. The scallops wrapped in bacon was sad. The bacon was undercooked and the presentation was displeasing to the eye. The salad was just iceberg lettuce and a sprinkle of other vegetables ( that was their garden salad). Lastly, the filet mignon was not good quality, I think , for a steak house. "

  • "Food was just average but the waiter we had was very good. He was timely, attentive and professional. As for the food I had a strip sirloin that was cooked properly, medium rare, but was not a superior grade, it had to much fat and was at best average. My wife enjoyed her lemon pepper sword fish. "
