The surrounding neighborhood might give you the impression you'd be walking into a restaurant that had long been stripped of its native charm in favor of a "new Cape" experience, but that is NOT the case. This place offers an authentic, no frills experience along with a bit of good-natured attitude, attentive service and excellent food. Not the most expansive... More

Friendly staff and above-average pub fare are the highlights of this mostly-locals establishment. No frills, but that's the way we like our Cape Cod village pubs. In tourist season it gets crowded, and reservations aren't taken. It's easier to get seated if you're a party of four or fewer. Best and biggest lobster salad on the Cape. Great wait staff... More

This bar/restaurant is very popular with Cotuit locals, especially in the summer months. It can get really busy on summer evenings, so go early or be prepared to wait!

It should be called Kettle-Ho where the locals go! Actually, the locals just call it the "Ho." During the summer it's jammed with the locals trying to avoid the tourists and complaining about the traffic (or the Sox if they are on a losing streak) and tourists looking for the authentic Cape Cod experience. Either way, it's a fun place... More

Kettle-Ho is tucked away in Cotuit and has great food and service. It is not a fancy restaurant but one that makes you feel welcome and comfortable.

Wonderful local place that serves casual quality food and drinks for dinner. Have eaten here close to 7 times over the summer of 2016. Sometimes you have to wait for a tAble or seat at the bar- and it's part of the charm of this small, rustic Casual restaurant. Relax , and enjoy.

Mostly locals but a fun place to watch the Pats and Red Sox. The food is very good and they give you a full glass of wine.
