Had dinner last night at Kubels and it was excellent. The seafood stew was huge with salmon, scallops, clams, mussels, potatoes, corn and garlic bread. Ordering a house salad was important and it was huge. I had their crab cakes and they were very good. The sides - rice pilaf and cole slaw - were great and a very large... More

Food and drinks were good. Nice large bar. Friendly staff. We were here in off season, so we did not need a reservation. But during the summer months the place is always jammed.

Stayed in LBI off season and went here for our first night dinner. It was very busy, but both bar service and dinner was great. My sister has a severe food allergy and they took very good care to make sure anything she ate was safe. Cant wait to return during our next stay!!

A friend with a home on LBI had recommended this restaurant. We'd never been here before and wanted to spend a beautiful day having lunch on the island. The Good - our server was extremely friendly and professional and I'm sorry I didn't get her name. We started with excellent soups, the NE clam chowder and French Onion. This was... More

Let's start at the bar: friendly, welcoming bar pros who pour good drinks at reasonable Happy Hour prices. Always a fun mix of locals, commercial fisherman, and island visitors and everyone is genuinely friendly. Bar appy's are always a bargain and always good. (Crab dip anyone?) In the dining room, you're greeted by a roaring fire in the fireplace, and... More

We’re back for dinner at one of our favorite spots on the island. In my last review I indicated that we were not at all happy with the Crunchy Flounder. Today, was a different story. Three of 6 diners had the flounder and all were more than pleased. Where last time we thought we had ordered large kettle-cooked potato chips,... More
