“A must stop in Clearwater Mn.”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

A lot of Travelers use the #24 cutoff to access a short cut between Interstate 94 and State Highway 10 . In the town of Clearwater just about everyone stops to eat at the truck stop which also has good food and good service. But there are more options and Keith's Kettle is a fine 1st choice. Keith himself is a owner who runs a hands on operation. One will see him clearing tables , directing staff and sharing in friendly visits with customers with an always "how's everything?"He takes the time to listen to customers on a one to one basis and wants to make sure your dinning pleasures are met both in the quality of the food and service. You cannot go wrong for a great meal at Keith's. Home like cooking in a restaurant atmosphere.

“Breakfast good.”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We only eat here for breakfast which is always good. Service is fast and friendly. They always have lunch specials on the board. Good value. Lots of locals, a good endorsement. Privately owned, not a chain, owner in attendance so well run.

“Depends what you get”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

My husband eat here every so often, when we are tired of fast food and don't want to pay the higher prices at the neighboring restaurant. Breakfast is good, buffet is okay, but the dinner menu, especially the fish, not so much.

“A Family Resturant the Way it Should Be!”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

After passing Keith's Kettle many times we finally were able to stop. It was defintely worth the wait! The resturant reminds of family resturants the way I remember them - clean, cute and friendly. The wait staff were very nice and friendly. The food was extremely good and very reasonabley priced. We will make this a new favorite place to visit.
