Great Reuben, burgers, pasta salad, free cheesecake with a soft drink and sandwich! Was not impressed with the carrot or german chocolate cakes sold in the bakery though.

We went twice for breakfast. Order at the counter and they bring to table. Not stylish but good food at good prices with friendly service.

I like the young servers here; they're friendly and helpful. The portions are very large; I always take half home. I had the matzo ball soup and the bean and pastrami and both were hot and delicious. On this trip I stopped here about four times and never had a bad meal.

As far as deli's go, this is just ok. I guess being a NYer, the bar is a little higher for me. Still, the food was fine, nothing exceptional. If you're in the area and you want to grab a sandwich, you'll be happy with the meal. Just don't expect a NY style deli.

We had breakfast our first day here, the food was good not great your order at a counter and they bring it to you. The service was good and the prices are very reasonable.

Going for a quick lunch which turned out to take longer than anticipated. Ordered the Chili which was good but did not offer the kick I am looking for in a Chili... The restaurant felt cramped and I don;t think I will be back anytime soon.

I always go to the Indycar race in St. Petersburg every spring and no place is better to eat at other than the Lucky Dill on Central Avenue. I get their Tuna Salad on Rye with Miss Vickie's Kettle chips, dine at one of the outside tables- and I am in heaven!! What a terrific environment!! Race week and The... More

Found this on a rainy day visit to downtown St. Petersburg. I don't live in N.Y., but my father did and he always used to take us to N.Y.-style delis like this one when we travelled. Florida seems to have no shortage of them. I'm sure my dad would have liked this one. You order at the counter and they... More
