A classic New England diner. The first item on the daily lunch specials was spaghetti and meatballs with side salad $8. I'm glad I did it too. Six nice meatballs in a sea of marinara atop a mountain of pasta. The sauce was simple, tangy and quite tasty. I couldn't stop myself until the sauce was all gone but I... More

Cash Only. My boyfriend and I walked down to the diner every other week to get breakfast. We like the egg sandwiches. Home fries could be a little crunch'er, but the service is great.

Take note that this Diner is small, a few booths and places at the counter to sit - it's set up like an vintage-style Rail Car Diner. With that being said, the service is great, the food is delicious, and the prices are perfect for what you get. I would recommend the Ruben sandwich if you're looking for something for... More

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.

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.

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.

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... More
