Dined as a couple at Hearth & Kettle in S. Yarmouth on Columbus Day evening, 2018, primarily because several other area restaurants were closed on the holiday (which seemingly signals the start of the truly "off-season"), and we wanted to eat somewhere we hadn't previously patronized. The place was not crowded, so we were seated promptly and the service was attentive. The food was good, the portions were appropriately generous and appropriately priced, and the facility was clean. However, there was nothing particularly unique about the experience. It's a chain restaurant; it's one of four Hearth & Kettle locations on or near Cape Cod, and all part of a much larger conglomerate of hotels and a water park. The corporate website boasts that every item on the menu is evaluated by a committee including the "purchasing director." Menu-by-committee is a sure sign that a genuinely localized, unique or aesthetically adventurous meal is not in the cards. I will recommend H&K for better-than-satisfactory dining, similar to Cracker Barrel, (long-gone) Howard Johnsons, or any number of other familiar, reliable but interchangeable chain establishments.
