We are fried clam connoiseurs so to speak, so felt Ken's, with their locally acclaimed breaded or battered fried clams were worth a try. Don't expect much, ambiance wise. They seem to flow with the local bare table/ cafeteria seating sort of atmosphere, which some find charming. We didn't. Short story, the fried clams(breaded) were okay, not bad but a... More

We are Full-Time RVer's and we travel from place to place about every 2 weeks. We leave reviews for every place we visit. We were going to eat here however we were looking to be served not self served. So, we decided to sit at the bar and have some Oysters and Drinks. They were fresh and everything was great... More

We drop in to Ken's regularly for lunch and always order 2 large bowls of Clam Chowder. We never know what to expect as the quality of the chowder is very inconsistent. Yesterday it was on the thick side and wonderfully spiced. Today it seemed that a significant amount of milk had been added to increase the volume in the... More

We had heard about Ken's being the place to go, so we went. There chowda was good but the rest of the sea food meal lacked flavor, they also gave us the wrong order and since we had waited some time for dinner decided try what they had gave us. They were not real busy at the time so we... More

By far our favorite seafood place! When in Maine whether we are heading way up north or staying in the Old Orchard area we always stop at Kens for the fabulous food and the spicy bloody Mary's. It's clean and well organized with LOTS of high school kids working the front, who do a great job! The scallops are SO... More

Every year we vacation in Old Orchard Beach Maine. We always have a least one meal here. We have been coming here for the past 12 years. The food is great at a reasonable price. Would recommend but this is not table service you pick food up at a window so if your looking for that type of service this... More

We're vacationing from the Midwest and we're anxious to eat as much seafood as possible. Kens was recommended by our hotel. The breading and seafood had no seasoning. Even the cole slaw had no pepper or seasoning. However, the clams were tender and fresh and the staff was friendly and smiling. We didn't try the raw bar but people were... More

Wish I could go more often, but when I can, it's always worth it. Can be busy at times, but even then, the wait time isn't usually very long. Big portions and friendly staff.

Ken's may not be the best in other seafoods, but I bet it's at least good. It's the clams that cannot be resisted, fresh juicy batter fried clams! Sure, it's got all the aura of dining at a bus station, but it's a fried seafood joint, not some la-dee-da fern bistro. And that's all the aura this old fried clam... More
