Good selection

Great choices for picnic fare or cocktail nibble food on the boat but a bit pricey. Super convenient if docked for the evening or weekend.

Love the sandwiches here! Turkey, apple, and brie! YES please! The shop is filled with goodies - but sometimes it feelslike you shouldn't touch anything or linger too long. Serivce depends on the day - how the folks that run it are feeling.... But honestly - its not enough to put me off of their food. It's delicious.

I had never been in the Big Cheese. I will go again! I love cheese and their menu has so many tasty choices. I was having a hard time deciding and was told I could get a combo. I had the brie, with Granny Smith apples, almonds, honey and cinnamon sugar. It was warmed on a fresh, crusty baguette. Delicious!... More

Awesome deli offering a variety of tasty and flavorful sandwiches. No gluten free bread, but they serve up their delicious creations in a box and you're set. I recommend grabbing a picnic lunch here with one of their select wines and walking down to the harbor to enjoy. Sailing into this harbor? They are less than a block from the... More

Whenever we are in Annapolis we always make a point to stop here for a sandwich. Is it a bit pricey, yes. Is it worth it, yes! I have never had a bad sandwich here and trust me I have tried several, my favorite is the turkey. I like the service, the women have always been friendly to me. It's... More

I've eaten at this place numerous times and never seen the 'rude' staff. Sandwiches are excellent. Great little deli with a great selection of cheese, hot sauces etc. just grab your sandwich and head back to the city dock ( 1/2 a block ). Best sandwich in town.

Two words come to mind when describing my experience today at the BIG CHEESE. Rude. Inedible. I first heard of the Big Cheese in December from my Midshipman. I heard from another friend it was a must try... So after 6 months of anticipation I finally found myself downtown and able to stop in. Initially I was very impressed. The... More

We both had the Anapolitan which was brie, turkey and apple - yum! These are on the expensive side, but worth it.
