Step Back in Time in and Enjoy Classic American Fare at This 1940's Style Chophouse

By Marina Jokic

"All of your stress from the day can fade away, you can sit back with an ice cold martini, relax, and be assured that we will take care of you as if you were family," says Shaena Tuohy, Marketing Manager at Kenny's. Their cuisine is primarily upscale American fare, surf and turf as well as the traditional soups and salads. They start each meal with their famously flaky, warm popovers, which have fittingly earned the praise of customers.

"The outside of our restaurant is in a strip center, very unassuming. You really don't know what to expect," points out Tuohy.

As you enter the restaurant, you find yourself in a cozy, romantic, and warm atmosphere that really goes hand-in-hand with the comfort foods on the menu. As stressful as your day might have been, visiting Kenny's might easily change that and help you unwind, an activity so simple, yet so elusive these days.

The restaurant is well known for its exceptionally trained and attentive staff in addition to the expert chefs. Wood grilled asparagus, Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese, Wood Grilled Oysters, and the Chilean Sea Bass with pesto and sun dried tomatoes are some of the most popular choices on the menu. The Tenderloin Crostini and Ahi Tuna Nachos are also quite popular for their delicate and fresh flavors.

"There is definitely a lot of buzz over our steak and cake, an off-menu dish, filet mignon topped with our jumbo lump crab cake," adds Tuohy. The Steak and Cake sounds unusual but has proven to be a hit. The popovers are another smash item, made fresh daily in house. "They are hot, fresh, with the perfect amount of flake on the outside and a warm doughy center," emphasizes Tuohy.

The Sunday Brunch menu is equally indulgent. Some highlights include the vast array of Benedicts (such as the Smoked Salmon, Tenderloin, and Crab Cake), the decadent French Toast Brioche with Grand Marnier and fresh strawberries, and its savory counterpart, the Chicken and Waffles. You can pair this utterly rich food with a subtle and fresh mimosa that comes in a wine glass, not a champagne flute, to quench your thirst or cure your hangover.
