We had lunch on Saturday afternoon staff was attentive and enjoyable to spend time with. 2 of us had the fresh battered fish and chips would have had more if I had room. All meal choices were excellent.

The restaurant embodies its name, Kettles Back Home Cookin' with meals that Grandma used to make. The wait staff was great and meals arrived quickly. There is no bar on premises but the menu is worth the visit for some wholesome food options. Highly recommended.

We always stop when in the area. We make it a stop on our destination. The team there is the nicest. The good is truly yummy home cooked. Best fries. Prices are still pretty good compared to other restaurants after covid. Even if there is...a wait, it is worth it.More

We visited this lovely family owned establishment on a whim while in Owen Sound. The hostess was fun and friendly, the wait was a tad long given it was a Sunday morning, but our eggs Benny was delicious and the atmosphere upbeat. Our waitress was...polite, quick witted and efficient. Would definitely visit here again and highly recommend!More

We have dined twice at Kettles because we don’t live in the area but we do enjoy the experience and delicious food they provide. It’s a busy spot so be prepared to wait but never too long. Staff is friendly and very efficient, we have...family that live in the area and we always give them a gift certificate that they always enjoy receiving. Portions are large but do offer half portions. We will be back to enjoy this restaurant again.More

My boyfriend and I recently visited Kettles for breakfast to celebrate our anniversary. I had never been before in my short time living in the area so I was eager to check it out. I ordered their standard breakfast, while my boyfriend got the back...bacon special. While the food was good, it was nothing to write home about. I’ve heard raves about the food at Kettles so I’m sad to say I left a little dissatisfied and disappointed. Portion sizes were good and our waitress was super lovely! Great atmosphere and friendly staff all around. We want to give this place another shot, so hope to make our way back for lunch/dinner sometime!More

There were 4 of us today. 2 regular eaters, 1 vegan and 1 vegetarian. The regular eaters were thrilled. Great food, good value. For the plant based eaters there is literally nothing on the menu. Nothing. Adding a veggie burger, a meatless loaf, a tofu...stir fry, anything, to the menu should not be a burden. If you are vegan or vegetarian this is not the place for you.More

I had Kettles Burger, with fries and a chocolate milk shake. My wife had the Chicken Caesar Salad and the Italian wedding soup. Everything looked and tasted good. I observed food being delivered to other tables and it all looked great. We will be back!...I had forgotten to take pictures of our food!More

We saw this rated as the #1 restaurant in Owen Sound and were eager to try it. Went on a Tuesday evening and it was super busy, increasing our already high expectations. The food turned out to be just okay, though. We couldn't figure out...the popularity. The best of what we had were the breaded and fried pickles appetizer, and the side of corn in the entrees. Otherwise the main dishes themselves (my battered fish, hubby's burger, son's schnitzel) were just okay.More
