    Decent new local place. Food is good, but that and drinks (beer) feels a little overpriced. Have been a few times and service has been good. Warning - Don’t get seated near the bathroom.

    Instead of doing gifts for the holidays, I decided to take my family out for a nice dinner. Kitchen was the perfect location for us as it was a reasonable distance for everyone in our party. We started with a round of drinks. I had the pear cosmo. While it wasn’t sickly sweet - I think it lacked the juicy pear flavor I was looking for. The purée tasted canned? The other drinks were standard. For appetizers we got the calamari and the mixed sausage grill (brats & kielbasa served with soft, salty pretzel bites). These both were delicious, had great texture and were accompanied with sauces. For an entree, I had the prime French dip. The meat was cooked a bit more than I would have liked for “medium” but again, the flavors were on point. We all enjoyed the fries which were well seasoned and light/crispy. Overall, we had a wonderful time at Kitchen. It was an unexpected find for the area & we will be frequenting again. Good for families or a date night. For 6 guests, in total we spent less than $300 including tip, so there is great value here as well!

    This was our first time at Kitchen American Grill and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. Our waitress Rachel was very helpful and charming. All of the food was tasty including the grilled salmon with beet salad and the burger i especially loved the cappuccino and brownie dessert. We will be back.

    We recently made our second visit to Kitchen American Grill. We stopped in for an early dinner after coming home from a trip out of town, and we were happy to find them open on Monday afternoon at 3:45. They were only a couple of other tables occupied when we arrived at 3:45 PM on Monday afternoon. We were promptly seated, and received a friendly greeting from our server Stefania. Our friends each enjoyed a glass of white sangria, and my husband had a draft beer from a local brewery. Kitchen has several local draft beers on tap and a comprehensive listing of wine by the glass and by the bottle. My husband and I ordered the appetizer Caprese salad, which was among the best Caprese salad we’ve had. And it’s July so the local tomatoes were perfectly ripe and the locally made mozzarella was a perfect accompaniment. Although it was a $19 salad, the portion was generous. Our friends shared the homemade vegetable lasagna, which they indicated was “incredible.” I had the (3) shrimp tacos, which were tasty. The corn tortillas were fresh and the chipotle mayonnaise had just the right kick. They also allowed me to substitute coleslaw for the French fries that typically accompany the tacos. My husband had their pork chop, which is served with a mushroom demi-glace over a bed of mashed potatoes. This was one among the most tender juicy pork chops I’ve ever tasted at a restaurant. The portions here were generous, the service was great and we all enjoyed ourselves. My husband and I had dined here before during a busier time and the service and food were good then as well, I just hadn’t written a review at that time. This is a great option if you’re in the area. Note that they also have covered outdoor seating as well as the dining room.

    Kitchen American Grill offers a fun, casual atmosphere with good (mostly comfort) foods. Service is very good with attentive, friendly and professional staff. It can be very busy at times but we were seated promptly, and our request to move our table away from the restroom area entrance was quickly addressed without question or issue. Overall, we were very pleased with our first dining experience here. The only "negative" was the excessive portion sizes. Each of our entrees could have served two people, and the food waste was unfortunate.

    Really nice place with excellent food and good, friendly service. My only challenges were that the place wreaked of industrial strength cleaner and it was really cold inside. I attribute both of these problems to the fact that I was there for lunch and I imagine they had just opened a few minutes before I arrived. That said, I hope they'll consider cleaning first thing in the morning and putting the heat on at least an hour before guests arrive.

    Was looking for a family lunch spot in this area and found KAG. Glad we stopped in. Restaurant was relatively small but not loud. Service was great. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations. Hummus plate was super fresh and pita seasoning was great. We had a flatbread special that was perfect. Entrees included Salads, shrimp tacos, burgers, and a southern fried chicken sandwich. All were prepared perfectly and everything was delicious. Honorable mention to the food runners who were also very friendly. I was very impressed & will definitely return when in the area.

    My salmon and my wife's chicken were overdone and almost inedible..they also messed up my order in regards to side choices..we had to ask for salt and pepper for the table and they serve unsweet tea and didn't offer sweeteners or sugar as well..even the french fries were not good..sad as we need more restaurants in our area but this won't do..

    The hostess was apologetic for the wait because they were understaffed. That's understandable these days. Unfortunately, the drink order was incorrect. We also had to send one meal back because if was not to order. The meal entrees were just okay. The fish was a bit overcooked. We expected better for the price. We’ll try it again for the burger menu.

    First Tinton Kitchen and i was encouraged by the fact it was already packed at 6pm! Suggest making a booking if you want to go at weekend. Our server was very attentive and despite being busy was always there when we needed him. Nice and varied menu, great cocktails and a reasonable wine selection. I will say the food was also excellent. Not a bad dish and there were six of us so we had a lot of different dishes. I hope this restaurant stands the test of time on Rt22 as many have not. We will definitely be back and very soon. Thanks for a great evening.

    Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Food was excellent as were the adult beverages. The only critical point I have to make is that the booths on the right side as you enter are too high and bench seats are too close to the tables to sit comfortably. We requested to be moved and our request was complied with. It looks like they are planning an outdoor seating area which will be a great addition

    This is a very nice restaurant and the food is delicious. The young men who served us on 8/16/22 were very professional. My only wish is that it was a bit quieter. It’s hard to hear sometimes with the acoustics. But overall I’d recommend it and we will be back!
