Description: The roots to this Cape Cod landmark trace their origins back to the old country and follow a route through Canada before settling in along Route 28. The Yarmouth House Restaurant was founded in 1978 by the Kounadis family patriarch, Gerry Kounadis. Born in Kefalonia, Greece, Gerry immigrated to Canada with his lovely wife, Vasiliki, in 1951. There, he operated a very successful diner in Montreal for over 35 years. His dream was to expand and open another restaurant in the United States. In 1978 he founded The Yarmouth House and he knew he had found a diamond in the rough. He brought with him his three children to help run the restaurant. With hard work and dedication, the restaurant became one of Cape Cod’s favorites, as it remains today.In August 2006, Gerry Kounadis passed away, but his presence is still felt every day in the restaurant. He left behind memories of his great sense of humor, positive attitude, accommodating demeanor and his famous welcoming smile. Today, his son Chris runs the kitchen along with other very talented chefs like Gary Sprague and Amir Ahari. The dining room is run by his son-in-law, Ted Zambelis, and his daughter Angie, who try hard to keep up the family’s goal of remaining a restaurant with the finest food at reasonable prices in an inviting and friendly atmosphere. The family owns and operates DiParma Italian Table on Route 28 in W. Yarmouth as well as our newest location, DiParma Italian Table, Seekonk, MAWe want to take this opportunity to thank all our patrons, especially the many supportive Cape Cod residents who have kept us in business for over 31 years.Thank you and God Bless

“Nice atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Nice menu offering fresh seafood and beef. The ambiance is pleasant and surprisingly quiet for such a busy restaurant. The service is very good and the food is delicious. I had the prime rib and would have it again.

“Try this place, it had great food”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

My fish was excellent and the best meal I had on this 9 day trip. They did a great job accommodating our group of 52 and other groups and individuals. Don't stay away because you see the bus groups, they are well organized and made it look easy serving so many. The food and atmosphere are great and I would definetly return on my own for another great meal.

“Busy place, popular with locals”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The Yarmouth House served our group tour well. There was plenty of room for the 50 person group and we were all satisfied with the experience. I saw many locals and "old friends" of the staff in the hour plus we were there. In the end it was "good food, good service and professionally accomplished.

“Great meal”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner at the Yarmouth House for a group of thirty people. Everything was perfect. The meals were delivered hot and delicious. Ted and the staff were most helpful and made for a very pleasant experience. We received many positive comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed their meals. We are glad we chose the Yarmouth Houser for our special event and will be sure to dine there again!
