Seems that each year we visit this restaurant as we drive through Kensington. We stopped on our way to the campground for a late lunch, and stopped again 8 days later for dinner as we were heading for home. Both visits were great. Service was perfect and food filling. For our lunch visit ,my daughter and wife each had the... More

Seats have tears in them. The meal is like most fish and chips/ hot sandwich places. Its hard to mess up french fries........ Lots of working men go there for lunch. Thin it is a bit of a bar as well.

We ate at the Friends and Family Restaurant while travelling through the area in July 2016. The food was good and the portions plentiful. We would go back again if we were in the area.

Service was extremely poor: took five minutes to get seated, despite the place only being one-third full. Staff were surly, food was average (not awful, not great). Maybe we picked an 'off' day, but haven't been back since.

It's in a strip mall, the decor is somewhat dismal BUT food is wonderful and not expensive. Vegetarian options, gluten free, great service.

Took some friends out for supper and they suggested this restaurant. Firstly, the lighting really should be addressed. It didn't add ambience, it was just too dark. It was quite noisy but the fact that they had their own lobster menu, determined it would be good. I had a lobster quesadilla. It was filled with lobster and the only improvement... More
