I don't even know where to start? everything was amazing. the hostess , my waitress , my server??!!! All just so down to earth, genuinely interested in you as a customer! Food was INSANE!! my chicken was beyond delicious, the mushrooms and green beans!!! I don't do dessert and was here on business ,or I would've taken it to go??!! just so accommodating! I had to drag it out of cashier about leaving a tip, wish I had more cash to leave! You MUST go there ,when in the area!!
First of all the food is great. We were a party of four (two kids) and we ordered four entrees and split them. Each dish was so good it almost made me sorry they rotate their menu every few weeks. I'm not sorry, variety is a good thing. Service was also top notch, not just the basics, but everyone was very friendly, especially Moe. Outside of all that, which made the experience great to begin with, the model of Soul Kitchen is inspired, both its farm to table roots and how integral community outreach and involvement are to its spirit. Will be a consistent spot of ours for some time to come.
Go for the idea of it and what they are trying to accomplish. The food was okay, the concept awesome!
Food is good and the staff is very friendly. Been there twice and will continue to go.
Everything and everyone! The community support. The charm. The staff. And the food!
Loved the cozy environment, delicious food and attention staff.
Great place and people

I've noticed that 99% of the reviewers have never been here. Stop giving it 5 stars just because you're a fan of jbj
Excellent food at a great price for a good cause. Excellent service.

A wonderful organization and staff
Great place! Great food! Love the idea!
Three of us went to the Soul Kitchen on Saturday, March 3 and it was an outstanding experience. The staff was very friendly, the hostess went out of her way to welcome us and the food was terrific. I will recommend the restaurant to all my friends. Give it a try!!
Love the concept. Great food, great cause. quality affordable food. I would definitely come back to keep supporting the cause. friendly staff of volunteers. they have inspired me to volunteer one day
Great cuisine. Well worth the visit and a wonderful opportunity to contribute for such a worth cause.
It's a worthy cause and the meals are good! You will not be disappointed.
I'm meeting my friend there tomorrow. So excited and looking forward to a great experience. I'll let you know what I think after my visit.
Good food, nice people, and for a great cause.
Amazing experience. Food and atmosphere was superb. I have always loved the singer but the humanitarians that he and his wife are make them that much more amazing. Thank you Dorothea for this beautiful idea of yours.
Awesome concept, delicious food, great atmosphere. Several people came in that really needed a meal and were treated just like everyone else.
Good foods and best server.
Beautiful facility and amazing food. And it's a charity!
Great people and great people and what a wonderful cause it is for

Excellent service and great food. For an awesome cause.
Nice atmosphere. Good food. Very nice volunteer servers. Great cause. Thx john bon jovi.
Nice place.Didn't see need it people. you dont pay what you can.you have to pay what they make you pay, like i thought it was. The food was really good.
Although there was no choicable menus(only one course menu), the food was great! No need to worry about quality and service.
Amazing. Glad I came from Sth Australia. Met Mr B. He cooked out tea & had photos. We then paid it forward for a homeless person to have a meal & bought nany souveniers. Would have been awesome if Jon was there
Great food, wonderful wait staff and best of all you can pay it forward to help feed another person.
Delish! Great cause! We will come again!
Vary good service vary NICE Staff
Nice cozy place
Great food, great service. It was a bargain at twice the price
Great food and service. Great concept of paying it forward. Highly recommended. Will visit again.
Wonderful food, staff & atmosphere!
They do very good things here for people so go, eat, pay.... You won't be sorry. Just meeting the people who volunteer here is a humbling experience.
Great experience here! Moe is an awesome server and the food was delicious and fresh.
Staff was so very friendly. Sat next to a couple who were 2nd cousins, also very friendly. Food was delicious, pork with balsamic reduction sauce and salad was good. Dessert not to be missed. Definitely planning on going back. Great idea to help others and pay it forward.
Great food great SERVICE. Its food for the soul
Friendship, warm, all around nice place to be. food is great !!!
Food was interesting and this a pay it forward type of restaurant with a set menu all home grown
Amazing place and really original food really affordable prices and great atmosphere!
Great atmosphere food was tasty and some of the best people I’ve met n NJ donate their time While I understand the concept of pay it forward it was disappointing that they asked for $20 for my 4 year old granddaughter
Very nive place with good food and excellent service! I was second person from Russia there.
Such a warm atmosphere! Delicious food!
I'll go there soon all the way from Cuba. Just can't wait to give my contribution to such an amazing cause! This is an awesome concept that should be copy by others worldwide. Little given sometimes don't require a lot and make a huge good impact in other people's live. All my love to JBJ, family & volunteers!
Very nice food and friendly ambiance!
It's was fantastic! Mo was a great hostess and even the other staff were nice enough to help out when we needed extra napkins (laury?) Will definitely return again
This place and the people volunteering are filled with love. Thank you for your service!
Wonderful place, the staff was so friendly, the food was amazing, and the atmosphere was so inviting. A fantastic cause for a fantastic restaurant!
Great BBQ with a family atmosphere.
Excellant food and service.
Great place for the homeless to come and help out and then get a nice home cooked meal. Love what they do for the community
Wonderful idea. Excellent execution. Better than most restaurants on the other side of Monmouth St.
The food was fantastic; but, the service was even better!!
What an amazing and humbling experience. The staff, what a beautiful welcome. I felt like they were family to me if but a short time. So friendly and genuine. The food was tastefully cooked and appreciated. Jon and Dorothea, what you guys are doing with JBJ Soul Kitchen in helping out the less fortunate, warms my heart. You just never know if you could ever be in a sad situation and maybe someone could help you out. I love and always have, the amazing group of Bonjovi but this guys, has really put it over the top. Thanks for the beautiful music you share and for the love you both give back to the community. Plan on coming back again for another visit. What a memory I will never forget.
Good food for a good cause. The squash bowl was a work of art.
ANY REVIEW'S THAT ARE UNDER 5 STARS ARE A FLAT OUT LIE! THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!! THE SERVICE WAS WONDERFUL AND THE FOOD WAS VERY TASTY. I LOVE THE CONCEPT. I THINK OTHER BUSINESSES SHOULD TRY THIS METHOD. ILL DEFINITELY KEEP RETURNING.
nice environment. people enjoy here
Good food, good prices, great cause.
Enjoy and highlight of this year
We went because of their Mission but could quite happily return for the food. Our Sunday brunch was amazing. Fresh flowers on the table. Every person working checked in with every guest. My soup was sublime!! and my Challah French toast with fresh blueberries was to die for. Truly the best French toast I've had since my mom's when I was a little girl. We shared dessert because I was too full to eat a whole one, but I wanted to try everything. My husband and I go out often for inexpensive meals and the occasional moderately priced meal. We try lots of different places, so while I'm no expert I do have a good baseline. We got fine restaurant dining at a price (we left the suggested dollar amount plus enough to help another guest else with a meal) somewhere between fast food and diner. Seriously. Go because the heart of the JBJ Soul Kitchen speaks volumes but expect five-star service and food at this lovely, unassuming eatery.
Great as always .... Great staff Great food always welcome ......
... lately I've been financially challenged, so having a bowl of hot soup at JBJ's, means a lot to me, thanks for being there for me !
Highly recommended . The food alone wasn't experience but the atmosphere took it to another level. The meals baby simple but always taste Gourmet and beautiful presentation
Food was great, very clean, friendly service and of course a good purpose. A must try!!
Great food for a wonderful cause and conversation. Will definitely return and spread the word.
Went there for a meet up event. Great food great service. But most importantly the concept behind it is all about volunteering and helping the community. Thank you Bon Jovi for your involvement and helping the community!
Great experience, lovely customer service, tasty food. It’s a small restaurant with a home-y feel to it. 3 courses for $20, or you can volunteer an hr of your time. You can also pay an additional $20 to feed someone in need which is highly recommended. A fantastic concept!
Small eatery with a $20 minimum donation for a 3 course meal. The meal was very well prepared and the ambiance is convivial and very welcoming. I would definitely return.
The food is first rate, each menu has something for everyone. Great price, great cause.
The customer service, food and service was VERY EXCELLENT. I decided to donate and volunteer my service just to get the experience to say I was there in Jon's kitchen. Also, pick up some souvenirs to take back to Chicago Ilinois. Thank you , Thank you Staff.
God Bless Jon Bon Jovi !! May God Reward your Soul richly !!
Had the best time visiting Soul Kitchen for the first time! Moe is wonderful and so kind and friendly. The food was also so delicious and fresh!
Very good food and great service. If you don't know the mission of this restaurant definitely give it a search. Had a very happy vibe too which is nice.
Great food, great purpose, and great people.
This is a wonderful endeavor. God bless you for your kindness of heart ❤️
A unique concept that works on fixed menu and set price, food is always good and vibe is upbeat
I've honestly never been there, (I would love to one day) I'll give it five stars based on the awesome concept
Tony made our day, I think the lady at the entrance was Marge not sure but she was absolutely fantastic. Hopefully if I visit from Trinidad again I will come again.
Food was delicious and the service was fantastic!
Friendly and affordable
The food was amazing and the staff were so friendly and accommodating! ❤️
The best of the best Jon bon Jovi knows what he's doing thank you Jon bon Jovi helping the world to function each and every day
I hope one day we can go and see this great restaurant, we live in Indiana and we like to show our kids that are 9 and 7 years old that giving back IS a way of life. Oh and it would be a personal dream to meet JBJ.
We go there every year, the food is excellent and the people are great. The hostess at the front who seats the people is fabulous. Everything you have to eat there is great. They now have there own sauce that you can buy at shop rite and target. It is one of the best sauce that you get in a jar. We are telling all our friends about it. It's worth the ride. We come from Staten Island and don't mine traveling. I rate soul kitchen as a 10.
I love this place
We had amazing time together absolutely love what jbj soul kitchen stands for and all the volunteers love you all from ohio
VERY friendly staff, good music. (they don't play Bon jovi though, I have to say I was kinda disappointed by that) I have never felt this full tbh, $20 for a delicious and three-course meal is very cheap to say the least. The vegetables are home-grown, you can even volunteer for gardening! If I lived in New Jersey I'd volunteer regularly just for the sake of being there. They have a really helpful employment program for those who volunteer there, which is cool too. I have been wanting to come here since I was 12 and I'm really glad to say it exceeded all my expectations (... except maybe Bon Jovi's music in the background one, but Beatles and other old songs made up for that)
Fun experience . My first visit. Not your everyday menu. Unique flavor blends. 3 choices for apps & entrees, 2 dessert offers. FIXED PRICE. Run mostly by volunteers . Philanthropy obvious. I will return with friends.
Friendly people & Fast service. Great choices off simple changing daily menu
Very good restaurant
Thanks bon Jovi
John and his wife are a life saver. When we were hungry they let us work at the kitchen and we didn't go hungry that night. I definitely recommend that people eat there.
The most incredible friendships and moments happen at Soul Kitchen. You'll share a table with wonderful people who may be interested need or not. Everyone is on the same socioeconomic level when they walk though the doors. Plus the food is outstanding!
Food was yummy! So much better than many of the other restaurants in the area. Community seating was unexpected but went along with their philosophy. $20 a plate covers 3 courses, drinks, tip. I really liked not having to worry about pricing. Love that they allow people to pay for their meals via volunteering. Will be back!
Soul Kitchen is an amazing experience. First, by paying it forward, you can feel like you're doing a little bit of good in the world. But you're also getting an amazing dinner. Seriously, where else can you get a three course meal for twenty bucks? I can't say enough great things about the place, the food, and the folks who work there. Know that it *isnt* cash only as suggested above, meals are $20 (unless you have a meal voucher; you can help others with meal vouchers by paying a little extra), and seating is family style so say hi to the people sitting next to you.
Awesome place, great food doing a great service
We are there on Thursday 6 September..despi de being very late we were treated like royalty.. The food is superb and the service amazing - efficient but with warmth and attention to detail...This is sadly a one - off asi live in U.K but I will never forget this great experience...
Awesome. Wife ate Brussels sprouts for the first time in 47 years and loved it. Everything on menu was fabulous! Way to go JBJ....
I havnt been ...yet, I live in Great Britain, but before I die, I'm making it my mission to visit, and hope to meet the great man himself....I rate this 5 stars because I love this man to pieces x
Always a great experience be staff and volunteers are great
The servers were all amazing!!! The food was delicious! and the process of paying meals forward was all made clear and I think is an amazing idea! If Im ever back in New Jersey I will definitely go back.
Finally someone understands , it's not all about money, I will eat here one day, could you imagine that if they would make a policy of no cell phones no exception, so people could also enjoy each others company. Now I will go see where this is and see if I can afford to get there one day. A well deserved 5 star review and I never have been there yet, Just Jim bike shop manager
Great idea! Good food, perfect portions. Nice vibe
Did visit yet my granddaughter want go to the restaurant she was 3 years old when she learn singing living on a prayer Emily is 9yrs old now and she still likes his songs my daughter n son n law will be moving to the USA in the next yr in 1/2.from England , until we come down I pray that God will Bless Jon and his staff .. MERRY CHRISTMAS N HAPPY NEW YEAR'S TO ALL
Wonderful food great place lovely people
Really great, very friendly staff and the food was amazing.... JBJ is a good man and doing GOD,s work. Herb Palmer jr Producer The Pay Attention film
This place was amazing. I planned my vacation around coming to eat at Soul Kitchen. My sister and I actually stayed in Red banks and commuted back and forth to New York by train . We are from Tennessee and had know idea how things would be. People in Redbanks were all very nice and we felt safe here in this gorgeous City. I was so overwhelmed by the welcoming we received from the Soul Kitchen staff it was all I could do to not cry. We definitely will be back. Thanks Tammy Warren and Michelle Rogers We love you all.
Truly an amazing place with great hospitality and food. Please donate if you are able too do so. It goes too a great cause.
Best place ever. Highly recommended. It's a community restaurant that the proceeds help those who cannot afford them y'all. You do not receive a check at the end of the meal. If you cannot afford it discreetly you can ask to do some work in the restaurant in exchange for your meal. It is the best concept ever. The food is delicious. It's a 3 course meal. With your selection of hot or cold beverages. Everything is homemade. And as much food as possible is grown at the Garden outside the restaurant or at the large garden a few miles away.
JBJ Soul Kitchen is phenomenal!!!! I would truly like to thank them for the generosity during this hard time. I'm sure all the federal employees that took part in your lunch yesterday agree that the food was delicious & the staff genuinely cared about how we have been holding up through this shutdown. I will certainly volunteer some of my time here & be back for a paid meal once this is all over.
As if I didn't love BonJovi enough already, he does something this wonderful and awespiring...makes me love him even more!
Great place, all staff are great and very friendly
Wonderful fellowship, food, atmosphere! We really enjoy dining at JBJ Soul Kitchen!
Although I didn't much care for the food here, the service was fabulous, the staff was fabulous. It was clean and cozy and I love what it represents. The food was creative others dining with us thought it was very good. It just wasn't my cup of tea
Good vibes nice people
JBJ is amazing. I am sure this is costing him a nice penny. But he is doing it to help ppl. Not for the fame. He is awesome. God Bless Jon!!
Most a.azing experience I've had ever
What a great dinner shared with family and a new friend that sat at our table. The food was wonderful...today we met Wendy one of the chef at the soul kitchen...wendy and the other volunteers were awesome....thank you.
What a wonderful place to go eat and be apart of something so amazing, giving back to help others not to go hungry. That’s what it should be all about! Everyone was so kind and very personable! The food was outstanding! It has been the best part of my trip to New Jersey from Florida! It so makes it worth the 20 hours it took for me drive up here. Thanks to all who give so much of themselves to keep things going!! I have been truly inspired!!!
Absolutely fantastic! Food was great and volunteers are so nice! You get a three course meal for $ 20 and can pay it forward also for a family or someone who is in need! Highly recommend!
Full disclosure: I am a volunteer at Soul Kitchen. I think very highly of all the staff and volunteers, and think it is an extremely well run and well managed establishment...a tremendous value too...and the food is absolutely delicious !
Very nice place. I am going back again
This place is awesome. The food is excellent. Everyone is treated like family.
Probably the most friendly atmosphere I’ve ever experienced in a restaurant! And the food was fantastic! Looking forward to returning!
What an amazing concept and an all round amazing experience. We didn't know what to expect having come from Australia and only heard about the place but the food was so delicious and not only were we satisfied but our children also thoroughly enjoyed their meals!
Great food great service simply the best
This is such an awesome concept and it works great. Delicious food and great atmosphere. Family style seating so you will be sitting with someone you don't know yet, but you will.
Great food and an opportunity to pay it forward!
Love what they do, food was great, volunteers were wonderful.
I love this place great food and great cause
Very good food, good service and good people for a good cause...You can't go wrong.
Great menu for a great cause!
I wish I could eat here everyday!!!!! The atmosphere was incredible, the staff was beyond incredible, the presentation of the meal was outstanding. The price was excellent for paying customers and the cause is without doubt a blessing to thise in need.
Thanks so much for an inspiring visit in December we loved the place so much left feeling inspired glad we had the opportunity to visit this amazing project the volunteers are wonderful this made our visit from limerick in Ireland to NYC and Red Bank wonderful keep up amazing work and we will be back soon. Kind Regards Trevor Bermingham limerick city Ireland
I have not been to the Soul Kitchen yet. I'm taking my grand-daughter next month; we are driving from Kansas City. I was hoping I could get some recommendations for a place to stay in the area. We have never been to that part of the country and are hoping to make it to the Jersey Shore for a couple days while we are there. Thank you in advance for any suggestions! P.S my 5 star rating is based on the concept.
Food SUCKS its terrible Mc donalds is better
There are no words... This was an amazing experience... Highly recommend!
Great work on all fronts. Food, service and atmosphere. I am visiting from Australia and had to come and see it for myself. Very happy indeed.
Delicious food. Incredible concept. Definitely a must-go place.
Food is very good service is great, proof there are still good people in the world. Don't let limited parking cause you to miss this.
Great concept! Yellow squash soup was awesome n I really liked what they did with the chicken. Staff was great!!!
The JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank is a great place to stay. The found is so delicious. They serve healthy food grown locally, partly in the garden in front of the Soul Kitchen. Each meal looks like art on the plate and tastes as good as it looks. The staff is very friendly and always open for a chat. If you come alone you are usually seated with somebody else and can make new friends. This is a wonderful concept and makes you feel dining in a huge families living room. And last but not least you support people who are less fortunated by eating here. The menu has no prices. They expect a minimum donation of 20 Dollars for one meal and they really appreciate each dollar you can donate extra if you want to. It is possible to pay with credit card. Taken all together it's a wonderful experience to eat here
good service, friendly staff and great food...
Love - love - love. I wish I live nearby. Amazing restaurant. You got it all: great food, great service and great people around you. One thing I love as a reminder to my family and myself: how you can learn to "Pay it Forward". Top notch!
Excellent food, great staff!
The food is so good and if u can't pay then u just do dishes.
Great location, very nice staff, super delicious food and a wonderful idea to help those in need.
