Steakhouse
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.

What a joy to be served dinner at an establishment where the wait staff are true professionals. We certainly had the impression that our waiter is a career waiter. He had impeccable timing, good recommendations, and knew exactly what he was doing. It is amazing how good service really lifts up the dining experience. Naturally the food was superb. We both had Ken’s signature sirloin which was fabulous, as were the sides. The cocktails were also excellent and the room we dined in was very pretty with art and lighted stained glass on the walls. This restaurant’s excellent tradition continues!

We got to sit outside which was nice, but the service wasn't good unfortunately, yet there were tons of people working and chatting/standing around. I got a burger which was good. My dinner partner got a salad with orange (gross) tomatoes. Why on earth wouldn't a restaurant buy great tomatoes? I'd never get a salad here because of this. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

Fantastic food and service, being located next to the kitchen entrance and exit was the only- only- downside. We look forward to eating there again soon.

Beef and sea food was exquisitely prepared. The server beyond expectations and kind.

Sea food casserole was scrumptious and tender not over cooked. The beef was fantastic too. Salads are a must!

This was a Great experience sans our location to the kitchen entry and exit.

Thank you!

I had such a good experience last Monday that I came back yesterday with two other friends. The food was very good, and one of the ladies took a meal to go.
Very enjoyable.

Great experience. One of our members did end up ill the next day. Thought it might be food related. No other guest of our group experienced any illness and it will not deter us from dining there again.

Came to Kens for the first time to celebrate a birthday.
We were greeted with smiles and seated immediately in a large quiet room.
Our server was very kind and on top of things.
The drinks were adorable and tasty! The meals came just in time as we finished our salads, the prime rib was to die for , the tips were top notch !
My daughter had zero complaints of her hotdog as she ate every bite.
Desert was beautiful and delicious! And the coffee was just perfect to finish the meal.
Absolutely no complaints about our visit to Kens ! Can’t wait to return ! 5 stars from us!

Haven’t been to Ken’s in a while, there’s something to be said about long running restaurants like Ken’s. Just the feel of dining out with a menu that’s not complicated, none of this “eclectic” or “infused” terminology. Simple; Steaks, Chops, Seafood, Soups and Salads, oh yeah and signature Onion rolls. One more thing, who the hell doesn’t love Ken’s Italian dressing?
You can’t / won’t go wrong eating there.

Ken's is very understated and completely without pretense. That being said, my steak was prepared perfectly and was of excellent quality. My salad and sides were of similar quality. The service was attentive without being intrusive, very pleasant and efficient. The wine list was limited but certainly adequate since I was only having once glass. The prices were very reasonable.

Ken's had been a part of the Framingham landscape for years. They have endured the ups and downs of the economy, changes in the trends of the day. Always to be a great place to take your family and friends to for a great meal with great service. They have maintained that history of the Hanna family even through this most recent episode of the pandemic. I have lived in Framingham for 64 years and go to Ken's often. They have always been a go to place for a great meal.

I figured we would make a date night out of our shopping trip to Natick. Upon arrival, the hostess eyed me up and down and then we were seated in the "Café" portion where the menu was nothing like on the site. Dirty grey goose martini I watched be made with Titos and charged as Goose. The clam chowder and lobster bisque were very good. The calamari is crispy but the marinara sauce awful. For dinner, we ordered the Delmonico rib eye and the steak tips, Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. Two side salads as well. The salads were a few pieces of lettuce thrown on a plate with some onions and tomatoes (spoiled). The mashed potatoes were hard. The steak tips were very rubbery in texture. Brussels were goopy. The Delmonico rib eye was highly tendinous. The 2oz wine flights (3 glasses) were unpalatable. 2 of the 6 options tasted good enough to drink. We didn't even bother asking for the 6oz pour. We spent $150 and barely ate any of it. Horrendous experience is an understatement. I just wish I could get my money and time back.

The food was good; the service was decent. I just wish they had waited until we had finished our salads before serving the meals. I also wish the steak had been a little hotter. But overall, a good experience.
