I love Ken's! It's like an old time supper club. The service is excellent, and the food, especially the lamb chops, are wonderful. The prices are low compared to other similar restaurants, and you get a great deal. It's one of the best places to go on the south side.
I have never sat at the bar, but it looks like a friendly, nice atmosphere.
Very busy on a Sunday night. The neighborhood really supports it and happy to be there.
The food was simple, fresh and delicious. Cajun chicken and salmon were especially good. Great service, friendly, attentive and helpful. Overall great experience
Parking is the only issue. We had a great meal and enjoyed the experience.
Maggie our server did such an excellent job! The steaks are excellent, great wine and very tasty desserts. It really has a good vibe.
Always a great go to place in the neighborhood. Love their food and the staff treats you like family
Delicious food and wonderful service makes for a pleasant dining experience.
Love the pizza bread, pasta salad and pickled peppers to start a meal!
Ken’s is consistent with food quality.
The food and customer service were great!!! I would highly recommend Ken’s.
Such a cool environment. Very upbeat and welcoming. Food was fabulous
Stick with steaks and martinis and you'll never be disappointed. They were out of several red wine options on the menu, but other than that, a great meal, service and bartender.
Prompt service, excellent food. Interesting (and good) appetizers. Prices about what was expected for a good (and filling) meal. Inside dining area a bit small but, when the weather cooperates, a very nice outdoor dining area.
Food was prepared perfect and soup rivaled those found at much higher end restaurants. Service was good for the packed house, and value of food is off the charts.
Great spot! Delicious food and reasonable. Nice atmosphere for any occasion.
End of the outdoor season. Perfect night, food, service....!
Love the friendly neighborhood experience. Good food, great service, lovely outdoor ambiance. What more do you need?
I enjoy eating there. I am a little disappointed when short ribs and oxtails run out or are not there. Service is great there. I do appreciate in times like these the people who work there.
Food is always great ... Sunday’s is nice & quiet
Clean food (not greasy), hearty portions, and outside dining was very relaxing. I ordered an old fashion and it was not watered down by any means. Service was quick and professional and definitely on my radar for more visits. The main reason why we took a table outside was because the noise level inside was a bit much, but this was on a late Saturday night so it is expected.
I do not normally write up detailed reviews, but I feel strongly that I have to share WITH THE OWNER...a bad experience while dining in on Saturday the 4th.
We had a reservation for 7:15 and brought in mother in law 88 years old...as she was looking forward to a nice dinner after us bragging on the great food, menu, service etc...
We were having a nice dinner when a group of people showed up (from another event)and they were seated at front of the restaurant...they were expremely loud, obnoxious (alcohol induced) and not a care in the world...loud is an understatement...the waitress kindly told them on a few occasions that they had to keep it down etc...as the "F" bomb was used freely (Disgusting by the way, when your trying to enjoy dinner) they became quite upset...got up and left and the one guy was complaining that "you just lost $$ yada yada you lost our business etc..and point blank told the waitress that she should be ashamed of herself...I never say anything so disgusting in my life...that customer was so out of line and we felt bad for that poor waitress...just wanted the owner to know, she was not in the wrong at all, and the owner should not allow that in the restaurant period!!! It's all about respect...I would rather lose a table of 8 than 25 others that are trying to enjoy dinner. They should apologize to the waitress as I, sure they didnt give her a dime, but they made sure to walk off with the bottle of wine, and drink as much as they could before leaving...very sad for such a great restaurant.
The food was outstanding and the server did a tremendous job! Shout out to Louise!
Ken's is a neighborhood gem. Been going there since the 80's and has gotten better.
Slow service for not great food. Cocktail list was unorderable. Wine list needs updating.
Started coming here a few weeks back and love many things so far cannot give bad rating because this place has a great menu ...reasonable .. and looking forward to trying many items
The perch - very tasty but wow ! Too many bones ...veggies on point & fresh salad
Orange roughy cooked to perfection
London broil - never again ...sliced super thin and reminded me of more like a beef sandwich type meat
Pork chops blackened Boom !! Out of this world with the exceptional gravy on point point with the seasoning also delish
Bone in rib eye ...very good & super reasonably priced...cooked properly also
Again sautéed veggies - not frozen are very good and cooked on the softer side ...so good ... the pizza bread at beginning ? Omg I’ll take that for dinner !!! Yum ola love them so far & will continue to try other plates .
Ken's is a great place to eat in an area that does not over many other options. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The service is very friendly, but not that profession. There is a pleasant outdoor dinning area available.
Great food and drinks! Friendly servers. Great music! Love the outdoor space!
every thing was great, I will go back there for any special day, and i would like to try Ken,s on a every day .
Loved the food ... hot & fresh ... we tried the Bone in Ribeye ... very reasonably priced & good ... also the Orange Roughy...cooked to perfection!! Absolutely loved the pizza bread & peppers !! So good & we will be back ... great little place
The atmosphere was cool family friendly and inviting they didn’t have kids menu but the waitress was very good at still explaining the menu for them... food was overpriced bland and underwhelming. I think do to the pandemic the quality of food in restaurants have took a hit ...hopefully soon the level of there food can match the overall ambiance of the restaurant I will pray for ya’ll
Great padio, excellent food , super friendly service, great bartender. I can't wait to go back.
Our server Liam was wonderful!! Thanks Liam for making the time a Ken’s wonderful!!
We ate in the outdoor area and really enjoyed it! Food was amazing!
Food was excellent and you could tell homemade. 1st time there and they had all my favorites. Cucumber and onions in a dill sauce. Pickled green peppers and pizza bread to nibble on while we enjoyed a perfectly made Dry Manhattan. Cream of zucchini soup for me and a very fresh crisp salad for Mom blue cheese dressing very chunky. We both with home with doggy bags which were brought right away so you could finish your meal when you wanted not when they got around to it. This is a place where they staff orkedas a team and payed attention to the diners.
Consistently healthy delicious food. Great service. Great local restaurant.
Ken’s was a nice quiet dining experience with excellent service
This is a great restaurant with daily specials. The food and service is excellent especially Maddie and Will!! This is my weekly restaurant
This was dinner with a friend. The food was very good. I had whitefish in a tomato basil cream sauce- delicious! It was a little noisy but we were seated in the bar Once happy hour ended the noise level was much better. I’ve eaten at Ken’s many times and love their food!
Don’t like eating in the bar. Made reservations on the day of. Was wishing to eat outside but it was raining. Food was good, service excellent. Please restock your J& B scotch.
