“Black Potatoes”
Reviewed 14 June 2012

When we asked the waitress why the black potatoe home fries she said the cook was aware and he thought nothing wrong. As regulars, we felt insulted, paid and tipped and left most of our breakfast right there and never returned.

“Very small and cramped”
Reviewed 19 December 2011

Long wait before being seated and served. Breakfast fare so-so and service somewhat slow. Would possibly try for lunch in the future to see if food an service are better.

“Classic Diner”
Reviewed 6 September 2011

I was in Spencer with a couple of friends for a funeral and stopped in here for lunch afterwards. Having a tasty meal with friends in a cool restaurant makes any day better. Not much to say but that the food & service were great and good prices.

“Nice Little Rail Car Diner”
Reviewed 30 September 2008

If you like rail car diners, you'll enjoy this small one that has presided over the Main Street of Spencer for lots of years. The Kenwood is tiny and has a southern exposure that makes booths by the windows particularly appealing in cooler weather. I sometimes bring in a newspaper and curl up in a booth over breakfast and a few cups of tea.

The menu at the Kenwood isn't much different from other diners. They offer typical breakfast fare including pretty good home fries. And the lunches are hearty and feature sandwiches, salads, soups, and specials on the board. I recommend the Kenwood Diner if you are passing through Spencer. There's easy parking in the municipal lot next door.
