Great place for lunch . Close to the beach and the outdoor patio was super. The patty melt was a very good sandwich for lunch with slaw. The salads are also very good.

First time trying the Kettle. Got in around lunch time, so not a big crowd and seated quick. Good size portions for food and good service.

If you're looking for a good meal at a fair price this is the place to go for breakfast lunch or dinner. Food is plentiful services good prices are reasonable and an easy walk to the beach

Met a friend that I hadn't seen in years. They were really gracious about our slow ordering and staying at the table longer than the normal lunch crowd. The food was excellent. I had a pot roast sandwich that was delicious and tender. Highly recommend!

This restaurant open 24 hours and the foods are good-taste so this is the conveniences place for business travelers to come and enjoy foods. I come everyday at very late night due to my jet lag.

The food was above average, but not amazing. While the restaurant was on the nicer and pricier side, you don't have to dress up to go here. It's more of a casual setting.

Our group got a mix of breakfast and sandwiches. Everything was tasty. We have eaten here before and have experienced slow service usually. But overall it's a fun place to eat.

Had a good meal..yummy salad. Family all enjoyed. It's a basic...and yummy . I like it because you can just wander in and not have a reservation..which is a welcome change from everything else here . Planning ahead can be hard some days when you...More

Terrific food, though very large servings. Love the house granola with serving of berries and a side of almond milk. Get that all the time ! Lovely sitting on patio with view of the beach !
