Last night was frigid with an artic blast! Saw Hot Vegetable beef soup on the sign! A bowl of soup and a BLT is just what the cold air ordered! Always enjoy taking the family to Kessels. It gives them a feel of an old fashioned ice cream parlor. Right down to the glass dessert presentation. They serve Breyer ice... More

Milkshakes and egg salad sandwiches...doesn't get any better! Except when you add cheese fries! Only my second time but clearly very popular with locals and regular visitors. Staff was friendly and service was quick. Cash only...but they have a mac machine so you don't get caught.

One word = MILKSHAKE. Rest of menu is simple & straightforward. Hot & cold sandwiches fresh salads & ice cream. Homemade sweet tea is refreshing. Family owned business that is clean & efficient. Perfect for families with small children and seniors (no stairs).

Ok, so this is a hidden gem...well at least to me! Small retro cafe with freshly made sandwiches and ice cream! The buffalo chicken cheesesteak and chicken salad are simple, but bursting with flavor. The line can be long and there is not a hostess, so be prepared to just wait for your table, it will be worth it. The... More

Consistently good comfort food from a great little corner restaurant. If you like ice cream, and especially milk shakes, this is the ONLY place in OCNJ to go!

We ordered morning medley but did not want potatoes and the pancakes. They were very gracious and allowed the substitution of wonderful New Jersey tomatoes instead. Scrapple was perfectly crisp, service was excellent. The pancake was the lightest fluffiest pancake I have ever had. You will not be disappointed if you go, it is a great family restaurant

Every trip to Ocean City must include 1, 2 or 10 visits to Kessel's Korner. Places like this make Ocean City the idyllic family resort it is. The ice cream sundaes are topped with whipped cream that reaches the sky! Serving only top quality Breyer's Ice Cream, this place creates classic desserts that everyone enjoys. Love this place!

French fries good. Iceberg lettuce in sandwiches a downer. Chicken salad huge, but no extras in it (celery, pickles, grapes?) Eight-ten waitresses, but spend more time chatting than serving. But lots of energy in the cheerful room.
