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.

The food and portion size was fairly decent, but the wait was awful. I ordered french toast and bacon and my husband had the Plantation Special no eggs. It took at least 30 minutes for our food to arrive. My husband didn't get any toast, we had to flag down another staff member to get his toast. Then we paid in cash and they didn't even bring us the correct amount of change. It took 90 minutes for a quick breakfast. I notice too that the prices were very high. I won't be returning anytime soon, there are far better places to eat.

The ambiance was fun and fall decorations were well done. The food was very good and the staff was very personable. A nice place to enjoy a meal

Here is a Down Home kind of a restaurant featuring a very rustic and traditional Cape Cod atmosphere!! A Long time Cape favorite to both local and visitor alike you can be assured of a tasty and enjoyable meal with attentive service at a really fair price. We dine here several times each year and the quality has never let us down!! The warm and cozy atmosphere is especially comfy on a bad weather day! Don't drive by when you are visiting the Cape....there is a truly nice place awaiting you inside!!

I can't comment on breakfast.

But, otherwise this place would give "fast food" a bad name. You'd be better off at at Micky-Dee's or Subway.

Based on two visits...different years.... staying across the street at the All Seasons: soggy water soaked veggies,,insipid (almost inedible) soup...overcooked meat (like sawdust).

We've visited other Hearth & Kettle restaurants in the past which were decent....this was the exception.
