My wife and I have always considered The Lucky Dill in downtown St. Pete to be one of our favorite restaurants when we visit St. Pete, and have been goiing there for over 20 years. Both of us grew up in the Northern U.S and are very fond of good Jewish-style deli (try Lennie's in Clearwater for a REAL deli... More

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
