Still Great! Thank you!

My first review was off season so I will say you WILL wait for your food. However that's not because they are disorganized or have untrained staff. They are working hard to manage the busy times and fresh food which takes time to prepare. Lindsey our waitress was awesome. Instead of waiting for... read more

Kubel's has always been our favorite restaurant on LBI, but tonight was the best. Our server Ryan was so friendly and efficient! Even though she was clearly very busy, she was still very attentive and went out of her way to make my mother and daughter feel special. Thank you for a fabulous dinner!

This is an annual "go to" when we stay at The Sand Castle B&B. The staff is always friendly and anxious to please. The food is plentiful and really good. Enjoy!

Had gone there during the off-season and didn't care for it too much. We decided to give it another try and glad we did. Staff was very pleasant and the food was good. Comfortable atmosphere and the price was right. Will definitely go back again. Just one added note, its a shame they don't have an outdoor dining patio to... More

i always like kubels. It is not inexpensive but on par price wise with other restaurants on LBI. If you sit on what I guess is the porch you get a nice view of the bay and the staff is always friendly

Had lunch with my son and a friend of his today. Rainy summer day and the perfect place. Super clam chowder and a super burger with fires. A cold beer. Nothing more to say. Yeh, it's old but so am I. This is the place to go on the north end of LBI, rain or shine.

This place hasn't changed in years...too bad...it's average in every way. The facility is tired looking, especially from the bay side. Food was mediocre, but cold beers on a hot day were appreciated. Maybe the lack of competition on the north end of LBI helps...Bourdain passed a few good places to get here....strange.

Your opinion is always appreciated. Regarding the bayside of our building. This is the delivery area and unfortunately, the appearance of dumpsters and delivery trucks can be unsightly. We certainly hope your opinion about the front and main entrance is positive. Arlene More

We enjoy going to Kubel's for dinner at the bar or happy hour. Food is not fine dining, but good solid fare. Some dishes - like the seared tuna - are very good. Staff is helpful and friendly. Can be very busy at happy hour. Nice mix of locals and summer only folks. Just a nice neighborhood place.

Other than the kind of long wait, this restaurant was great. We liked the atmosphere, the service was very good, and the food choices were also great.

This is another restaurant that is on our must-visit list when we are in LBI....we all love the scallops in beurre blanc sauce - it's incredible! Kubel's isn't a fancy place but the location is beautiful - right across from the bay and a marina...and the food is really good. Dishes range from burgers and fries (which my younger son... More
