Kunkel's Seafood & Steakhouse
The feel of family is evident throughout Kunkel's, from the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Carol, all the way to the kitchen where son Justin is preparing some of our great meals. You feel at home in our cozy dining room featuring two fireplaces and mahogany and painted woodwork throughout, which was designed and built by John. We are also BYOB :)

This was my 3rd visit within about 2 months, and the WORST! Generally I don’t get the whatever the daily specials are, this time I did. It was so bland! Totally salt less, and the vegetables were not al dente, they were not cooked fully. Corn, peas, and an assortment of peppers… uncooked. When my sister tried to communicate to the owner that the food was not seasoned, she seemed to not want to hear it.. she immediately said “… everything was good right? “.
Let me be clear everyone is very nice at Kunkels. The staff is friendly and attentive but the food was disappointing this time.
Our waitress Alyssa was amazing! The food was fantastic too!
First of all, I just read a rather unsettling review about this restaurant which I found to be completely without merit. My husband and I are both foodies, especially since we have a chef/son in NYC. We visit this restaurant quite often and have found the food to be exceptional to say the least. Calling it a steakhouse does not really describe their cuisine adequately. The specials offered here are incredible to the point where I have often told the owners, "PLEASE put that on the menu." Of course, the next special I like even more. Their desserts are fabulous including the cheese cake freeze, although the choices are getting very difficult. I develop an addiction for one and John just keeps finding another that I like better. Of course, Carol's pound cake is my husband's favorite. We LOVE this restaurant!
Dined here last night for the first time. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by a wonderful lady (maybe the owner) and sat right away. The server was great and told us about the specials and price of steaks, (the only thing on the menu that says market price.) Nothing is al a carte like another person said, everything comes with salad and bread and have potatoes and vegetables included with each dish. Food was fantastic and the cheesecake freeze dessert is a most! We will be back for burger night and brunch
The eggs in the Benedict’s were not cooked and the 3 small steak pieces in the steak Benedict were grisly and not edible while the salmon pieces were very small.
Love that we were told the evening specials and their prices without having to ask! We each had one and they were wonderful! Great meal
First time going to kunkels and we loved it. Food was great we both got steaks I got the rib eye with the Demi glaze on it and it was great. My lady got the ny strip and a lobster tail and everything was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was awesome. She was sweet and was very attentive to us. We asked a bunch of questions and she had answers for them all. Also the hostess she might have been our favorite. She was so nice and very hospitable made us feel like we came over her house for dinner. We loved her!!! Lastly we got the cheesecake freeze it’s something to die for make sure you try it out. It’s so good!! We will definitely dine there again!!
Since stumbling upon this spot about a year ago while trying to find places to go during the year known as Covid, it has become one of our go to favorite spots. The ambiance, staff, owners, and of course the food are perfection! Always made to feel welcome and part of the family. Definitely worth visiting!
We went for their Sunday Brunch. A neat spin on traditional breakfast foods
While the ambience was very Nice I thought the contrast between high-end steakhouse and personal service seem to be a bit of at disconnect. As the menu is all a cart for the most part prices need to be told to you which is fine however it did take a long time to process the entire menu with the constant reminder of cost. Unfortunately it fell short of a high and steakhouse service when I asked for how my fillet would be finished and it was told to be only option was dry. This was a bit funny as all of the specials were finished with the Butter option. Dinner was more diminished as our server touted the lack of crab on the menu as a shortage of crab in the entire New Jersey area which I’ve not heard before and that the reason for no costing on the menu was because the price of steak and meat was now on the same pour as gold and changed daily this was something which I had yet to encounter. Owner made a table check 3 times and the steaks we spot on in temp but needed a better finish
Great place. Love it.
Steak not prime meat, for price paid
I came here with my family for the first time and we felt immediately at home and part of the Kunkel’s family. Alyssa was a fantastic waitress. The food was outstanding and everything was made in house and so fresh and absolutely delicious. We can’t wait to come back!!
Awesome as usual.
My friends and I have a great night at Kunkel’s! Everything came out cooked perfectly with great flavors, steaks and Red Snapper. The cheesecake freeze is an amazing dessert! I have read some recent reviews before dining and all I can say is people need to be more understanding with servers and restaurants. Price and product change all the time(even at the supermarket.) We all thought Kunkel’s was amazing from the owner Carol to our server Denese.
New York strip little quality. Noise at next table over was too loud
Locally owned steak and seafood restaurant. Service was very attentive and welcoming. Food lacked creativity. My NY Steak was a fine piece of beef, cooked on the rare side. Demiglaze was fine, sweet, not particularly artfully prepared. Vegetable side was the typical boiled/ wilted side.
I was not particularly impressed with this restaurant, but the bill was not astronomical either. All in all a “meh” kind of place.
It was an enchanted evening at Kunkel's where my husband and I dined this evening. We found the atmosphere to be very tranquil for the two of us, it was somewhat crowded however we enjoyed other people dining out also. The meal was really great, cooked to perfection and tasted just as good. We also ordered dessert, the pound cake and the cheese cake freeze both of which were terrific. Thanks again Kunkel's
Overall outstanding experience! This was our first time dining here, but it will not be our last! Grilled oysters were delicious and the BBQ shrimp apps. We all had steaks.. yes they say market price and are COMPLETE dishes that come with vegetables, potatoes and a salad, worth it for everything that is included. My Rib Eye was cooked perfect and my wife loved her Filet. The other people we were with said their snapper and salmon was very good.
Market Price ? I learned The hard way.
Filet prices Disney Yachtsman $52
Steak 48 in philly $49
Capital Grille $46
Ruth Chris $51. Current market price from local food rep $45 a pound
Kunkels charges $70. Of course we ordered 2 but didn't ask market price. Never again I will always ask. Filet was no was worth $70. Totally taken advantage of by restaurant. Steak was tough hard to cut even with steak knife ! See u do learn something new every day. I hope this helps someone else
Cathy, I apologize for any lack of communication on our part. Up until the most resent weeks our price for an 11oz, choice filet was $45.00. Our menu clearly lists all of our steaks at Market price I would also like to make you aware that our steak dinners include a salad with your choice of homemade dressings a choice of mashed potatoes or hand cut potato wedges, and vegetables. We also furnish the table with fresh baked French bread and butter at no additional charge. Thank you
It was a perfect venue for Father's Day. The welcome was friendly when we entered, our server was very attentive, the food was cooked perfectly and the atmosphere was charming. I would definitely go back again.
Absolutely one of the worst steakhouse experiences for me. I had to send the expensive steak back 3 times. I ordered the steak medium-rare plus. If you operate an expensive steakhouse, you should know what that order means.
I received the steak RAW!! I cut into it to verify, yup, it was raw. Sent it back, it came back still RAW. Sent it back again, came back RAW. What the "chef" was doing was simply re-plating the steak, playing the game of "send it back to the customer, they won't know the difference.
I had enough of this game. DO NOT waste your money with place. You WILL BE disappointed, you WILL waste your money, you WILL NOT be happy.
DO NOT WASTE your money, time, energy, and effort.
The only thing Raw about Alberts Steak was the Raw deal that he gave our server! He dined with two other family members that were happy with their meal, and even asked him the following question. “How come everywhere we go you have a problem”. Albert can I give you one bit of advice, don’t go around claiming you are in the business, and then treat your server like you did and leave her nothing! Open Table please Remove Albert for your service!
First time at Kunkels. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Food, Service Ambiance were all excellent.
Will definitely go back and recommend to others.
Got the ribeye steak and it was very gristly and even burnt/charred on 1/3rd of the steak. For the price I was very disappointed.
Totally love this place! Food is always awesome!
The food is always great at Kunkel’s. I especially enjoyed the dessert (not cheesecake but not ice cream). Thanks for doing a great job, even while supporting a large party.
It was our first time there and we absolutely loved it! The service was great & the food was amazing. Large portions for the cost.
Where do you start? from all the homemade dishes and sides to the best crab cakes!! Crab and pasta is to die for!!!!
The food was so good. We all agreed it was an outstanding restaurant. And the beauty of the room added an atmosphere of elegance to our experience. And I can’t forget the cheesecake “ice cream”, excellent.
Delicious food, great service
I really enjoy this place. The food is excellent and so reasonable with pricing. Nice date night and BYOB!!!
Well the clams were sandy. The bread for them was in the bowl so it’s was soggy. My steak had no flavor. My wife’s crab cakes were supposed to be jumbo lump crab meat and there was minimal crab in them. They tasted like frozen crab cakes
Love this family owned restaurant, when you walk-in, you are treated like part of the family! The food is always exceptional and the service is as well. It gets all the stars from me!
This little restaurants has now become one our favorites. Nice staff, food came out hot and quickly. I had the beef short ribs and they were so tender all you needed was a fort to cut them. My wife had the salmon which she orders at many restaurants. She compared to salmon she’s eaten at other 5 star restaurants. She was delighted and we both left full and smiling. Go there… you won’t be disappointed.!😋
Food and service was really good
A little pricier than I remembered from past experiences. Steaks were just so-so. Apps and desserts were delicious. Server was awesome.
Very nice place, but... food was just “good.” For the prices charged it just needs to be better. $30 for 2 crab cakes that were made from dark claw crab meat. I’d rather they give me one crab cake made with lump crab. Dish came with mixed veggies that were a bit too soft and mashed potatoes that, were again, just okay. Wife felt the same with her dish.. if the kitchen could just step it up a notch it would be a very good place, certainly the restaurant is pretty, etc.
Very high quality place. Ambience is elegant. Food is delicious. BYOB. Services is always great and people are kind.
Great directors dinner!! Food and service was great!!
The service was slooooooow. She didn’t even refill our water glasses unless we specifically asked... multiple times. It took almost 3 hours to get through our meal. And it cost 300.00.
