Overpriced food with average taste, amount and presentation. Our waitress was nice but took awhile to get our food. Too expensive. I ordered the jumbo crabcake, its not jumbo, just average size with fries and a small condiment cup size of coleslaw.

Service extremely slow. We are expecting fresh fish when we ordered the fish & chips, what we got was store bought frozen fish sticks. Yuck

The menu is filled with overpriced frozen food that you can find at BJ's or Costco. The drinks are expensive and unoriginal and the food is far too costly for what you receive. If you like their coconut shrimp, you can also find it at a discount food store. What a shame.

We decided to go here after a woman who worked at How You Brewin recommended it. What a great recommendation! We were seated right away out on the deck with a view of the bay and the beautiful sunset! The salads were fresh and delicious, the lump crabmeat cocktail was soooo good!! I ordered the scallops , which were cooked... More

It didn't seem to be a problem. I changed my fries for garlic mashed and was happy I did as the fries the others received were... More

Not much else around. Food is mostly consistent but tonight's house salad was wilted and brown, very uninspired. Batter-fried haddock good and two huge pieces. Crab pie very good but pricey as were the other entrees. The new deck is nice, cosmos fair and small. Would rate this place a "C" - waiter never brought bread or asked whether we... More

I'd like to apologize for the wilted salad...that should never happen. I will also discuss your never being offered bread, dessert or coffee. We look forward to seeing you at Kubel's, A Long Beach Island Tradition since 1927! More

This place has been around forever, and it's still good. The food is very good, reasonably priced. The service is excellent. A beautiful, cozy interior and an outdoor deck ideal for summer dining.
