This is "the" place in Cotuit and it was very busy and lively. That said, we were seated quickly and attended to right away. The food was delicious. I would consider this a "must visit" if you are in Cotuit. It is in the heart of the town near the water.

We live in Cotuit and find ourselves at the Ho from time to time. It's not fine dining but it's fine for a quick meal, and the food gets more than passing grades. Check it out if you are in the area. The daily specials are often quite good.

We ate at kettle Ho with our friends and it was great. The food was excellent and portions were huge. Couldn't finish it all. Took a box home. Will definitely eat there again!

I had lunch here 05/21 after checking out Cotuit Beach for surfcasting. My timing was very lucky as they open at 3 pm and I arrived only 5 minutes or so later. It’s a small, tucked away lunch and supper restaurant/bar that offers good food and drinks at decent Cape Cod prices. I had the Rib Eye Chili and the... More

Years ago Kettle Ho had two distinct personalities. On one side was a narrow townie bar, and on the other was a "family friendly" restaurant that served a decent breakfast. Now it is one open area with a wraparound bar and tables with a menu that appeals to all ages. The last couple of times I was there, the tables... More

This is one of my favorite off the road places when I come up to Falmouth. It is worth the short ride into the Cotuit area. The service and friendly and good along with great salads, sandwiches or dinners along with a good list of cold beer.

Been a while but reminded of the Kettle Ho by a friend. Not much to look at from the outside, kinda looks like a mid-western laundromat. But it's whats inside that matters. Clientele is somewhat "townie" and I say that as a complement. Nice relaxing vibe. Drinks are great. Best Quohog on the upper cape. And the clam chowder even... More

It's a very popular place with the locals. Food is always good, it can get crowded on the weekend nights. Friendly atmosphere.

We've been coming to the Ho for years, first single, then married, now we bring our 4 year old for lunch and dinner. Great mix of characters, beers are cold and both the staff and the patrons are full of smiles. The food is great. A step up from standard pub grub (the wings are still awesome...), but so is...
