“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Spending the week on LBI with wife and family. Took a bike ride to Barnegat and happened to find Kubels. The doors were just opening for the lunch crowd. We took a seat at the bar and Joe was very friendly. The dining area looked very nice. We had just a light lunch. Steamed clams were real good, nice butter and garlic broth. Had the lightly fried scallops very good,wish there were a few more. Wife had chicken fingers and said they filled her up. Everyone was friendly and the price was fair. We recommend Kubels.

“Pleasant Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The restaurant decor has a lot of character with a nice wood bar. We saw great live music. The musician welcomed special requests and that made for a very fun night!

“Local hangout/summer retreat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Truly a staple for the Barnegat Light crowd. If you are in the area, go to Kubels! Good sized bar, with bar table seating, booths for more privacy, and/or dining room where the best sunset views are to be had. We love the sweet potato fries, chicken flautas, anything scallops! The menu is extensive, with lot's of daily specials to choose from. Service is excellent, friendly and personal. Prices are a bit high, but not unexpected in this summer-vacation, Jersey shore town. Close to the lighthouse and Viking Village.

“The outside should reflect the inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

I was pleasantly surprised with my experience at this restaurant. The food was excellent and so was the service. There was a great welcoming atmosphere that was perfect for my whole family and I. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. However, I did not expect such a great experience when I pulled into the parking lot. There are some dingy dumpsters behind the restaurant. They are very off putting and dirty looking. However, I am glad to say that they are not a representation of what is inside the restaurant. I am glad I decided to try this place and will definitely be coming back soon, and I hope others will not be turned away by the dirty dumpsters.

Sorry about those necessary, but yes dirty dumpsters in the back of the restaurant. Unfortunately, as they are the property of the sanitation company, and not the retaurants, we were not permitted to paint them this spring when the complete exterior of the building was painted. Hope you enjoyed the flower boxes and new pedestal flower containers at the front entrance of the building as well as the flower containers and herbs at the south side though. How about our new flag pole, with the Barnegat Light flag too? Delighted to hear that everything on the inside was to your liking. Did you like our newly remodeled rest rooms?Hope to see you again...
Regards,
Arlene Morrison

“Go somewhere else.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We were looking forward to going to this restaurant and exploring Barnegat Lighthouse. The food was expensive for what was served. Only 3 shrimp came in the Stuffed Shrimp Dinner @ $23.00 and the fish in the Fish Cakes was very hard and seemed overcooked @ $18.00. I saw other reviews where people would wait to eat here. There are plenty of fine restaurants on LBI. Go somewhere else.
