Hidden Gem

Out of the way place that locals like as a drinking bar and pub. Food very good, but get there early in season to avoid lines. Both seafood and burgers are great!

i was referred here by a friend many years ago, and at first was a little hesitant. But that quickly changed to happiness that has kept me coming back. Yeah, it's a bar, but the food, the crowd and the staff make it like coming home.There are booths and tables, and families w/kids. Mike, Crystal, Taylor, Coach, and all the... More

I usually make a visit to the Kettle Ho whenever I'm visiting my mom (who lives in Cotuit). It's a local joint with a quirky decor that includes dozens of college pennants. If the lobster special is on the menu, then I'm hard-pressed to try anything else -- the portion is huge (I once counted 8 lobster claws) and the... More

Kettle Ho is a local hangout! Pub Food with TO MUCH GREASE! The fried seafood platter was too big for one person, so we shared it with an extra plate. Perhaps they were so busy pouring beers or mixing drinks to change the grease in the fry cooker, but I won't order this again. Good note, I didn't eat dinner,... More

Good food in a very casual atmosphere. We tried the stuffed quohog. Excellent. I would like to see a meal made of those. My husband and I had the fried whole belly clams. They were fresh and plentiful. Another in our party of 4 had the special with fried shrimp and scallops. We were all pleased. The Cole slaw sides... More

A local sports bar with fantastic food! Went on Saturday night and it was packed. After we were seated (in the small penalty box section) people arriving after U.S. had long wait. Lobster roll was amazing! It must have had over a pound of lobster in it

A bunch of us decided to stop going to the Kettle Ho a few years ago because we watched it go straight downhill after the new owners took over. It used to be a fun local place to hang out. The guys who took over appear to hate people and think it is beneath them to serve others. They get... More

Kettle Ho is a VERY popular restaurant with locals. The staff is very friendly, the food very good, and the prices very reasonable! It's quite noisy because of the above...but a GREAT place to go for a reasonable meal. A booth with seating for four is best choice if you want to hear your own conversation above the hubbub. Not...

No one ever leaves the Kettle Ho underfed! Enjoyed their fabulous rib-eye steak last night. It had to be 12 oz or more (filled half the plate). Took half the portion home. Chef cooked the steak perfectly. Yes, the place is noisy, but the food is delicious, the people are friendly, and it is Cotuit's best gem!! Also, wine glass... More

The absolute best lobster salad anywhere, drinks poured to the brim in an unpretentious, family type atmosphere. Don't miss it.
