Very friendly server. Angel food cake Specialty martini was attractive and tasty. Soup special artichoke tomato bisque in a clear broth was rich and spicy. We both chose the pan fried grouper. It was a thinner filet than we expected. The coating was a slightly sweet Not what we expected. We finished with the crime brûlée beautifully served in a martini glass. Tasted great but a bit grainy.

The food was really really bland. Chicken and shrimp both rubbery. Appetizers were mediocre. The best part was the dessert. Our waiter seemed upset at us after we told him the food wasn’t amazing. That being said it was all over priced for the quality of food. Traveled all the way from Texas for a big disappointment.

My husband had shrimp curry in a cream sauce that was very good. The scallops Sat special in a creamy gravy w/ mashed potatoes didn’t do it for me. The squash soup had a LOT of garlic in it. Waitress was very upbeat. Would have rated it higher but after I stood waiting for someone to seat us for five minutes, I was told We were 15 minutes late and they had another reservation at 6:30 (2 hours later) left me with a bad taste.

Locals recommended it. Was very reasonably priced.

Ordered a filet mignon and it seemed like it was cut in half and cooked. It was tough and we ordered well done it was extremely well done. I ordered checked stuffed with goat cheese and couldn’t taste or see any goat cheese

Cooler in the outdoor heated patio than during our last visit. Not quite as comfortable. Love the quietness and intimacy the patio affords. The food was quite good but not excellent. The holiday Martini list makes this spot an annual destination. And a framed photograph from the hostess to commemorate special events is uniquely appreciated.

Food and drinks were delicious. Portion size was perfect. Had a little bit of left over but only so we could enjoy the cheese cake for dessert. Service was prompt. Music was festive. Noise was not distracting from our date night meal.

We have never been disappointed with the food (or the drinks) at Ken & Sue's. The Shrimp Satay and Calamari are not to be missed and I always enjoy the tuna!

However, we were deeply disappointed in the service and the temperature this last time we visited Ken & Sue's. We went with some dear friends who are older and while it was warm when we got in the tent, the propane started running out shortly after we got there. We told our waitress that we were cold and she said that she would have to get her manager to switch out the tanks. Then she was gone for quite some time with another table. We asked again and still no new propane. The plastic "door" to our little tent didn't overlap, so there was no barrier between the outside and us. We were so cold when we left (our feet were like ice) and it was embarrassing to have taken our older friends to a dinner where they froze. It was a huge disappointment.

Because of this, I would never recommend eating on the patio in the winter. It was miserable. Who wants to spend over $250 for a dinner in their puffy coat and hat?

Very polished and well trained wait staff. Really good food. Ambiance was fine, but we were outside tent dining. Noise level was a little bit crowded because of outside dining. But food and wait staff and cocktails and dessert were all amazing.

Great vibe overall. Excellent service - in fact, some of the best service we have ever had. The outside patio ambiance was top notch. The potstickers were fair - no “meat” in the body. The calamari needed more flavor, more ‘punch’. The shrimp tempura satay was excellent. The entrees & desserts were very good. We will be back. Thank you.

Spring roll special was disgusting, calamari was cold. Didn’t have bread to pass around the table(their excuse was Covid). My wife had to send back her prime rib as it wasn’t the way she wanted it cooked. Went for an Xmas dinner with friends and it was horrible. Would not recommend.

As always food was delicious and the servers were very friendly and professional. K&S does such a good job with the outdoor seating. Wry cozy and warm. My only complaint is that the servers and people in the kitchen did not wear masks. This was very uncomfortable.

Nice variety on the menu, excellent, pleasant service, all around relaxing, enjoyable dining experience. Only one comment....maybe they could have a dessert menu which includes after dinner drinks! Server didn't know much about that, couldn't give prices & choices. Written menu would help.
