The surrounding neighborhood might give you the impression you'd be walking into a restaurant that had long been stripped of its native charm in favor of a "new Cape" experience, but that is NOT the case. This place offers an authentic, no frills experience along with a bit of good-natured attitude, attentive service and excellent food. Not the most expansive beer or spirits list on the Cape, but the food more than makes up for it.
Definitely worth the short drive off of Rte 28 to visit.

Friendly staff and above-average pub fare are the highlights of this mostly-locals establishment. No frills, but that's the way we like our Cape Cod village pubs. In tourist season it gets crowded, and reservations aren't taken. It's easier to get seated if you're a party of four or fewer. Best and biggest lobster salad on the Cape.
Great wait staff who will treat you right-as long as you're polite.

This bar/restaurant is very popular with Cotuit locals, especially in the summer months. It can get really busy on summer evenings, so go early or be prepared to wait! It can also get pretty noisy, in particular if there is a ball game on the TV. The food is surprisingly good for a bar...they have standard bar fare, but also they offer steak, ribs, and other items that you don't usually see in a bar. And it's GOOD food! So definitely try it, but just be aware that it's essentially a bar that serves food, not the other way around.

It should be called Kettle-Ho where the locals go! Actually, the locals just call it the "Ho." During the summer it's jammed with the locals trying to avoid the tourists and complaining about the traffic (or the Sox if they are on a losing streak) and tourists looking for the authentic Cape Cod experience. Either way, it's a fun place to go. The crowd is friendly (even if you happen to wander in wearing a Yankee's cap), the food is good - burgers, chili and especially the lobster rolls (it is after all Cape Cod) and the service friendly and efficient. The Ho like the Cape is best experienced off season when the tourists are gone and you can experience the real Cape Cod - minus the mini-golf and the ice cream and salt water taffy stands.
