Good enough sammich, nothing particularly special

I had a half a pastrami sandwich and an order of fries. It was fine, didn't knock my socks off or anything. It was probably my fault but I was kind of surprised it was served on a just toasted bread. I was expecting it to be on a roll of some sort. But... I probably could have ordered it... read more

Stopped in for lunch and the place is alright. Food is served quickly and the portion size matches what you pay for.

My husband and I eat at Lucky Dill most mornings when we visit St. Pete. The breakfast is excellent and the staff is great. I like the relaxed atmosphere and decor. I am picky about how my eggs are cooked and they get it right every time!

Went there today because my kid is at ACH. Needed a break from hospital food. Should have eaten at the hospital. The sandwiches were so bad we could not even eat them. The roast beef had so much fat, and it didn't even taste like beef. The pastrami was like shoe leather. 23 dollars for the worst sandwiches I have... More

This was our second trip to this lucky dill. We frequent the Palm Harbor Store often, I ordered a whole hot pastrami, a lucky club and a bowl of bean and corned beef soup. Took my order back to my hotel five blocks away, The whole pastrami, was about 1/3 of what you get at the Palm Harbor store. The... More

I wanted to meet up with friends for lunch and have heard from others at work that the Lucky Dill is the place to go for great deli sandwiches which were huge. I have been longing for a good corned beef or Reuben for over a month, so I said lets go to the lucky dill. I had the Rueben... More

We have visited The Lucky Dill in Palm Harbor for years. Amazing food & bakery. So...we see a Lucky Dill Deli in St Pete & decide to check it out. Upon arrival a woman says, "Order at the counter." And she hands us a menu. I say, "Oh, that's different, we usually go to the one in Palm Harbor!" She... More

Great for munchies but not a New York style deli. The sandwich looked great, pastrami and corned beef on nice rye bread but the cold cuts were not up to New York standard. Better than average but.....
