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

Dined here and thought the food was outstanding. A little on the pricey side but wonderful dining experience.

We had dinner at this restaurant tonight and it was the worst meal that I have ever eaten at a restaurant. The Ceasar Salad contained wilted lettuce soaked in dressing. The bread that was served at our table was stale. For one of our entrees we ordered a 1 1/4 pound lobster and it resembled a 1lb chicken lobster for $34.99 and the baked potatoe was raw. The Lobster Fettucini was soaking in a sauce that came from a jar. We came for an early bird dinner and it cost us $68.00. I really hate when I spend so much money on such poor food. We will never visit this restaurant again.

When seated waiter immediately appeared, introduced himself, said he would be right back to take our drink orders and then disappeared for 15 minutes. He seemed rather unsure of what to do and I wondered if the regular summer help had already returned to school. Restaurant was busy but not crowded and when one waiter dropped something on the floor it took 14 passbys by wait staff before someone picked it up.

Oh, the food - it was OK. Nothing memorable or anything to really make me want to return anytime soon.
