    In addition to the standard printed menu the server presents a verbal list of at least 7 other entrees. We both ordered from the verbal list- I got the veal Milanese and my friend got the seafood sampler. Both of us had first class meals. The veal Milanese was definitely the best I ever tasted. Also the bread was “as good as it gets- yummy!” I addition to their outstanding wine list and vast array of standard cocktails they have a nice assortment of fun specialty cocktails- we both enjoyed our specialty cocktails. Service was outstanding as was dessert. We tried their Key Line pie and the cheesecake. Both were outstanding and the Key Lime pie was arguably another all time best for me.

    It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! Everything was delicious from drinks up to dessert. My husband had the filet sandwich and the steak melted it was so tender and I had the lobster roll sandwich and French onion soup which were both excellent. We shared the tiramisu for dessert and there was plenty to do that. Can’t wait to come back again.

    The food was five stars. The Ceasar salad was incredible. I could have stopped right there and given this place five stars. The steak and crab were as good as it gets. I like the light level. A bit of a noisy table next to us, but they were just having a good time. Can't wait to go back and try some of the other things (steaks) on the menu.

    I ordered a 70.00 ribeye cooked medium. It came out well done. The staff was very apologetic and they got me another steak right away. That one was medium rare but I don’t mind medium rare so I didn’t cause anymore fuss. The steak itself was a quality cut but it just didn’t have much flavor. It was a little too charred on the outside so the char kind of overwhelmed the taste. I felt like the service was good but when I spend 70.00 on a steak, I expect better taste. We also ordered broccoli. It was served as an entire head of broccoli. It was the most bazaar way to serve broccoli I’ve ever seen! I had to take a few minutes to use my steak knife to cut the florets off the stem so we could actually eat it. Obviously it was cold by the time the 2nd steak came out. The wine was good, and the atmosphere was too. They should seriously reconsider their approach to cooking steak and broccoli though. I’m not sure if I’ll go back again or not.

    Lunch in the lounge was loud but that was expected in the lounge. My salad was good. Dessert, the lemon tiramisu was more like limoncello cake was watery. It tasted like they tried to quick thaw it out a frozen cake and it was completely watery.

    Celebrating our 53rd anniversary with friends. Oysters were delicious. Luncheon choices -- crab cakes, corned beef sandwich, and walleye with mashed potatoes -- was outstanding. Dessert (peanut butter cookie, cream brulee) came with sparklers to top off our celebration. We spent 2 1/2 hours. Service was excellent. Manager checked on us several times and surprised us with a bottle of house pinot grigio. We highly recommend Ken Stewart's Grill to all who want to celebrate a special occasion.

    We met my long lost sister in Akron. After touring the Stan Hyweth mansion we stopped to have an early dinner at Ken Stewart. The dinner was very good, generous portions, prepared expertly. I had the walleye, my sister had grouper, both fork tender and cooked to perfection. My husband had filet done perfectly, medium well as requested. The best part of our trip was our server Carol C. She gave us both lunch and dinner menus, took our picture and was so accommodating. She was always there when we needed something in an unobtrusive way. Thanks Carol! We will be back!

    My wife and I went to Ken Stewart’s for a date night and it was phenomenal, the service was amazing and so was the food! the waitress made our salad at the table side which was fun to watch. Not only was the food worth 5 stars, they had an amazing variety of entrees, alcohol, and desserts. It was on the higher end as far as price but it was worth it in my opinion. I would recommend Ken Stewart’s Grill to anyone who wants to have amazing food and even better service.

    Service was quite good and menu with specials was good variety. Extensive wine list. Food presentation was very good. However the flavor and overall experience of the meal simply does not justify the pricing. We have been to many places across the country with similar pricing but food and dining experience was extraordinary not just good.
