I haven't been to Ken's in about 20 years. And when I suggested to two guy friends that we go there for some "manly" meals, they both said the same thing. I had a burger, which was fine; nothing exceptional, but "good." One friend had the short ribs (which he liked very much); the other, the shepherds pie (which he... More

Service and quality of food have both declined over the years. Ceaser salad, for example, used to be cold and crisp -- not so anymore. For on a quality level of lesser restaurants now. Too bad. I miss the past quality.

Ken's has been a family run restaurant on route 9 in Framingham since the 1940's, and it's currently under the 3rd generation management. I hadn't been there for years, and to be honest, I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised! Good food, great service, and reasonable (though not cheap) prices ... all it needs is to be renovated... More

The food was not great. The place is for an over 65 group. A bit old fashioned and needs renovations to pep it up a bit.

Ken's is my go-to steakhouse. I really enjoy a good steak dinner and they know how to consistently deliver a quality meal. My favorite is their prime rib, which is delicious and a pretty generous cut. Just to name a few other dishes which continue to be on-point are the calamari, clam chowder, and fillet minion. Service is always professional... More

I always wanted to go to this restaurant, and now that I am in my 60's I finally got to check it out. The waitstaff was terrific, especially my server at the bar Nicole. Made my scotch perfectly, and the server at table was very good too. My steak the Ribeye was somewhat disapointing. It was cooked to my request,... More

Had dinner with colleagues here recently. We tried the restaurant because we love Ken's salad dressings and were curious. The restaurant is something like what you'd expect for a traditional steakhouse, but a bit dated. The menu wasn't extensive, but there were a few good options. I had an arugula salad and added salmon. It was pretty good. Also enjoyed... More

If you go to Ken's for lunch often enough you'll know that the service is never very fast. Today I waited with five friends for more than an hour and forty five minutes for our food to make it to the table. We all ordered either a salad or sandwich - nothing complicated. When the food finally arrived is was... More

Went with some friends and the food was good, not great. The steak was cooked as asked but a little tough and the scollops had to be sent back because they were undercooked.The service was very good.

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.
