    This was a nice surprise. The food was just as described, delicious and definitely worth a repeat visit. The location is a little odd. Behind a bank and next to a street of row homes, but the inside was very nice. The drink, a watermelon punch, was delish. The french onion soup and Kevin's salad was so good, I would go back just for those. The entrees were good. The desserts, a bread pudding and creme brulee were very good. The server was very friendly and helpful.

    This restaurant is consistently perfect. I know what you’re thinking, nobody or no place is perfect. But honestly, I can’t find one reason to give this place less than five stars. The menu the food the service the atmosphere are all impeccable. And, it’s a fun place! We went on back shack night and it was so worth it.

    Excellent food and ambiance!! Our waitress was wonderful. There was another who chastised us because we had 4 people instead of 6. We explained that they literally just called us to say they weren’t able to come. She then went on to lecture us about breaking down the tables. When we were leaving, she interrupted us to fill 3/4 full water glasses as we spoke to a couple we knew at another table. Beware of this server. Our waitress, however, was wonderful!

    Booked reservations on Open Table a week in advance. I feel they may not look at “special requests”. Asked for booth away from door - put us directly next to door. Couple that came after us got 4 seat booth where we got a 2 person booth - my husband is a BIG guy. The other couple would have “fit” easily in 2 person. Other than seating debacle, everything was fabulous. Server was spot on, food was excellent. Pork chop delicious!! This is our 5th - 6th time at Kevin’s & we have never been disappointed!!!

    Always a great experience at Kevin’s! Excellent food from two terrific chefs, friendly and spot-on service from an awesome front-of-house staff, and delicious cocktails to go with it all. Our only wish would be for a wine list that’s a little more in-depth, but that’s not all that easy to do in PA. Kevin’s has become our go-to place where we know we can relax and just enjoy what we know will always be a pleasant evening.

    Yesterday was our Anniversary and I was looking for something different. Checking out my options on OpenTable led me Kevin's. I had been there in the past and was happy with the experience but it had changed owners since then. When we arrived, we were promptly seated and provided waters. It did take a little time for our server to reach us but in todays world, we need to be understanding of the staff shortage. It gave us time to talk and admire our surroundings. The inside of the restaurant was well done with a very open feel to it. There was an outside area that had multiple tables and a area with a fire table. When we were greeted, by our server, I found her demeanor to very pleasant and outgoing. She offered a explanation of a specials and then took our order. We started with the fried calamari which was done to perfection. For our main courses my wife had the Flat Iron steak, French fries and Sugar Snap Peas. I had the Grilled Chicken done in a light peanut sauce, Rice and Sugar Snap Peas. Both entrees were excellent. For Desert we opted for a Pumpkin Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream and a Chocolate Lava Cake. Both were delicious! If you are in the mood for some adult time and looking for a place to go, look no further than Kevin's. You will not be disappointed.

    Food and drinks were great. Wife said the chicken was the best she’s had in years. I got the special: squid ink scallop ravioli, which wasn’t great. But the appetizers of shrimp and claws was very good! I’m willing to give them another try because I got the sense My dish fail was a one off occurrence. Service was top notch and the manager was hustling! He’s the man. Also the crème brûlée was delicious.

    While my husband and I visit Kevin‘s regularly, for a good reason of course, this time we decided to do a tableside Cesar and several appetizers instead of entrees. This was of course another success!! The manager Bill does the tableside Cesar and you can tell he is an old hand at this, it was perfectly dressed with fresh ingredients and the portion was perfect for our intention. Are other appetizers including my husband‘s oysters were also on point. Of course we will go back!

    I came in for dinner with my 5 year old son and husband. They offered chicken fingers for children and when my sons chicken was served to him it was raw inside. They were quick to apologize for it and brought out a better batch. Then my food came out, I ordered the filet medium and what I received was a steak that must’ve touched the grill for 1 minute and nothing more. It was completely raw inside and instead of complaining since we already had one huge problem happen,I just saved it to cook it longer at home. I would expect much more for a $140 meal, meaning everything be fully cooked. I have eaten in many high end restaurants before and this one definitely disappointed. My server was excellent though.

Our server (Gabrielle), the runners and the manager (Michael) frequently went above and beyond to make our experience perfect. Food proportions were appropriate, salads were chilled and entrees were temperature perfect. Just an overall great night out with my wife. Thank you everyone at Kevin's!

    French onion soup was excellent - not too salty. Shrimp and crab claws were delicious. The fresh pasta should not be missed - particularly the pasta with shrimp, scallops and sun dried tomatoes - hum hum! All pasta and desserts are made on site - so come hungry! Great thing is they are open Monday's. Definitely a keeper.
