REAL locals place that welcomes all

This is a bar that serves good food and is family-friendly. What a mix! That's why you can expect waits in the busy season, but it moves pretty quickly. Everything is fresh - enjoyed the wedge salad with it's juicy red tomatoes and the fish reuben is one of those funky, but good combo when eaten... read more

It's a bar, but it's not dark or gross. It's not fancy, either. Lots of sports pennants on the walls, and the obligatory tv. We got a seafood platter and shared it between the two of us. I ate the fried fish and my husband ate the other stuff. We both really enjoyed it. We'll be back to this popular... More

We were smart to arrive before 6:00, so we did not have to wait for a table, There were so many things on the menu that appealed to me that I had trouble choosing. In the end I decided on the baked scallops as it is something that I do not eat that often. The scallops were so fresh and... More

Local color, local beer, friendly staff, and good calamari. A nice spot for some local color in a lovely area of the Cape. 'Nuff said!

The local to our summer home. Always good food and atmosphere, but the size and layout leaves it a bit cramped if with kids. Setting our tradition aside still well worth visiting

Looks like its been a LONG time since some people have been to The Ho. Breakfast hasn't been served there in OVER 5yrs. We love his place!!! Great food and staff. The prime rib on Thursday night is AMAZING! The lobster rolls are giving the Raw Bar a run for their money and I can't begin to gush over the... More

The Kettle Ho has been around for many years. The present owner has greatly improved the food. Best fried clams and fish & chips around!! It is a great place for the locals to hang out, especially after dinner when the bar crowd arrives. Great place to meet people and socialize. The atmosphere is rustic but that adds to its... More

If you are looking to have a fine dining or uber chef experience, don't. Freindly staff, sturdy home cooked type food, warm local customers and great service. One of the great saloons on Cape!

The best fresh fish and chips ever! Cod so tender and flaky. Breading was awesome...not greasy at all. Great cole slaw too. You can even sub onion rings for fries at no charge. Great stuffed quahogs. Prime rib was unbelievable!!!! Great local place. Must go!!

The interior needs to be spruced up, dirty dark grungy. Seating is horrible. For the only restaurant in town the owners really should step it up a little. Food edible but not great. Not recommending this place at all.
