Our food was all very well prepared and fresh. There were a lot of specials and our server was very capable and pleasant to chat with. Her memory was excellent.
We have been a few times and never had anything that was not excellent.
Thank you for making it a better choice for especially special occasions

I expect more for the money out of this Akron iconic restaurant. My wife's swordfish was bland, my lobster tail was over cooked. The scallops and crabcake though were excellent as were the deserts. When you spend $300 for a meal for two the entire meal and experience should be flawless. Ken Stewart's fell quite a ways short of the mark on this particular night.

Very tasty meal, great selection of specials for lunchtime. Great service! The dining room and restrooms were very clean. Our only minor complaint was that they don't leave a basket of bread on the table. Each person gets to choose one small piece that the server presents to each diner. We thought that was a little strange. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the baked brie appetizer and raw oysters we shared for appetizers were very good as well.

The food was so good that my mother even liked it. Which was amazing in it's self. The salad and the Mediterranean Salmon we're delicious and I would definitely order it again. My mother and sister had the petite filet mignon which was phenomenal. You want good food and service this is the place to go.

I took my wife to Ken Stewart's Grille for Mother's Day Dinner. Starting with the parking attendant, who was very friendly and courteous, our visit was great. The food looked spectacular and delicious, especially my wife's Alaskan King Crab legs. Our visit ended with some coffee and pleasant good bye from our server. All in all it was a very pleasant Sunday afternoon.

We had family visiting from out of state, so wanted to impress them with Akron. Of course we had to take them to Ken's, knowing we would not be disappointed. The food as usual was wonderful, and the service was perfect. Our food arrived in a timely but unhurried way, giving us a chance to enjoy the full experience. The calamari appetizer was particularly noteworthy, as were all of our entrees. Thank you Ken for a perfect evening.

It is an OK restaurant, but nothing extraordinary. Service is really great, but that is it. Appetizers are much, much better than the main course. We didn't try desserts. It is, probably, the best place in Akron. It can't be compared with best restaurants in Cleveland, for example.

The wait staff was amazing. She thoroughly knew and understood the menu and patiently reviewed it and the specials. The downside was that the specials we ordered contained seafood that was overcooked. The lobster on my order and the shrimp of my mates plate were both way too overcooked especially seeing that we dined here to be rid of those types of nuances and didn't mind paying more for better preparation and care. On the other hand the lamb and filet mignon were outstanding.

Service was excellent. Food was very good for the most part. The Filet Mignon steaks were very charred on the outside and not very moist. For the price, all food should be excellent - the steaks should be "melt in your mouth". Side dishes should be served in single servings instead of servings for two or three so you do not have to collaborate as a group on side dishes.

The food was phenomenal: the wild mushroom toast with truffle cream sauce is to die for. The scallops were prepared perfectly. The Chilean Sea-bass itself was a superb piece of fish, however the miso soy sauce seemed to overpower the fish’ natural flavor a bit too much, but was very good regardless. The espresso cheesecake was a fantastic cap to a delightful meal. It’s only the second time I’ve gone, but was even better the second to e around and I will most definitely be going back when I next want a u Iquitos gourmet meal along with the classy ambience.

Very disappointing! The salad was a joke. The steak was in some bizarre sauce that was funky and not described properly. I couldn't identify what it was I was eating. I was a candied walnut that turned into damn near rocks. Very disappointing dining experience. I have been to the lodge many times and love it there so this caught me off guard.
