Wanted a corned beef sandwich at this restaurant. Order was placed quickly - too bad the food was not delivered quickly. Waited approximately 30 min. Luckily the person with me went inside to check on her order - the wait staff had trouble finding our orders (and the restaurant was not busy!). When the sandwich "finally" arrived, the sandwich could... More

I have enjoyed going to the Lucky Dill over the years and have always found the service, food and price to be of great quality. This last time I went for a late lunch during a St. Pete art and craft show, and was able to relax and sit outside on a beautiful day and enjoy a new sandwich to... More

My husband and I stopped by the Lucky Dill with an ad for a deal on a sandwich. You guessed it they would not honor the ad because in the fine print it stated that the ad was only good for the store located in Palm Harbor ( which by the way is not even close to the downtown location).... More

We have had a light lunch here several times when in St. Petersburg. It is in a great location but not as good a restaurant as the one in Palm Harbor. We ordered the soup and half sandwiches which were ideal for a small, quick lunch. I made the mistake of visiting the ladies bathroom before leaving and was very... More

I am very picky about sandwiches from so called deli's. Since fast food sandwich chains don't get my business, I will go out of my way for certain things. The "Jewban" (Jewish Cuban) sandwich is worth a 50 mile detour for me when I go over to the West Coast of Florida. During a recent trip back to the Tampa... More

My family and I took an out of town guest to downtown St. Pete to show her there's more than just the beaches. We stopped at the Lucky Dill for lunch. The food was very good & plentiful for a deli style restaurant. Prices weren't bad either. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather while we ate. Our experience... More

I always order a pastrami on rye when I eat at The Lucky Dill in palm Harbor, and so I ordered it here. What a disappointment! As another reviewer stated, it was served on a marble rye bread that immediately fell apart, and while I know pastrami is not lean, there seemed to be extra fat on mine. Because the... More

I thought this was going to be like the Lucky Dill that was up by Weeki Watchee, but it wasn't. The menu was smaller. The shrimp salad was fresh and tasty and the cuban sandwich was good. The staff was friendly. There was nothing wrong with this place except I thought it would be a full service sit down restaurant... More
