Been coming here for years. There are not a lot of tables so you will have to wait if you get there at 6:30. Service is friendly, food is awesome, the kids love the dessert options. Don't forget to have a paper airplane contest with your family with the placemats after dinner.

Its a cheese Burger, on a grilled bun with lettuce tomatoe and a pickle. Fries do not come with it, so if youre a burger and fry person, make sure you order fries. For the price, I felt... More

Lunch is an enjoyable summertime experience. Steak sandwiches and Hoagies are very good and man-sized. Hamburgers are large and juicy as they should be. Ice Cream is a must afterwards.

We got take out from Kessel's on our last night but I was surprised at how many people were dining in the restaurant. I had a chicken cheesesteak which was good and my wife had a salad. On the salad, there was a pile of onions and we also noted that they don't really chop up their vegetables so be... More

Have been coming here for years. Enjoy for lunch or dinner. Clean, consistent, with pleasant and efficient servers. A favorite dish, the Kessel's special, is a nice cheeseburger, with lettuce, tomato(good tomato ,even off season), on a tasty bun. Good fries. Also have nice and abundant salad selections. They also have an eat-in or takeout ice cream menu, with Breyer's... More

We ordered a sub and there was plenty of meat on it. Also ordered salad which was plentiful. Also had the cheesesteaks and ice cram. They were all good and place was packed.

This is probably the best place for breakfast in Ocean City. It's clean, bright, well staffed and the food is good, consistent and the prices are fair. Actually In Ocean City terms the prices are low - no gouging. We won't even think of going to another place for breakfast - but please don't tell anyone, we'd like to keep... More

This is a wonderful family owned restaurant. A great place to stop for any meal. Breakfast is very good with reasonably price items. Their french toast is very good. Lunch/dinner is good. The Kessel's Special is my favorite. They have the best rolls for their burgers. It's always clean and the waitstaff is attentive. One of the few places you... More

This has been a go to favorite of my sisters for several years now. I was glad to finally try it. Eggs,sausage and pancakes. Pancakes were best I've had in a long time. Light fluffy with just the right syrup. Will definitely repeat.
