This isn't the same restaurant that it used to be in the 70's and 80's. Food is pricey considering that it's not really the best quality. i.e.: meals run in the same price range as some of the other more fresh and newer establishments. We might go again, but food quality is likely their biggest stumbling block. Coupled with high... More

Ate here and was thought the experience average at best. Food was really nothing special. My salad was overpowered by the blue cheese and overcooked bacon. Other had meals which were equally poor to average. Service was also average but generally friendly. Value we thought was kind of expensive although there were cheaper options on the menu. I'm afraid for... More

08-25-2014 my family and I went to the orleans hearth and kettle for dinner at 5 pm... We are regulars there, and are very aware the food is good and service is a crap shoot... This evening while heading to our seat a waitress was rushing out to her tables with a tray full of ice cold sodas. She ran... More

And that's about it. Reasonable value, but mediocre service, OK environment. But the menu was varied, all-day breakfasts, and the food quality was good for the type of restaurant (American chain-like). And even though it is only a local Cape chain, and they advertised special selection of ingredients and menu selections, it did come across as a chain, but where... More

The food here is always great -- we usually come for breakfast, occassionally for lunch, never for dinnner. You can always count on a delicious meal served minutes after ordering. Our 25+ year streak has been broken by a waitress named Rachel. We waited OVER 45 minutes for our coffee (with no apology). Then at least another 15 minutes for... More

Exactly what you would expect from a chain. The food was good, not great. Prices were ok. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

My family have enjoyed going to the Hearth & Kettle in Orleans, MA for many years. We just got back from having dinner there, & we're disappointed. Service was slow, and it took forever to get our food, and we arrived at 5:00 p.m. and it was raining, so they were not very busy. I have no idea what the... More

Atmosphere was OK, service was OK, my food was OK, her food was NOT OK. We actually ate a Hearth and Kettle in another city up the Cape, so it may be that there is some notable variation among the chain locations

We went around 8am for breakfast so we beat the morning rush and had prompt service from a really sweet server. I ordered the Berry Pancakes and my SO ordered the Plantation Special and we both enjoyed it. The only thing I could be critical about is the smell when you first walk through the entrance doors right before the... More
