Great sandwiches

Any time I am in the area I try to get to the Lucky Dill. They have great sandwiches. Unless you have a large appetite you may want to order a half sandwhich. Nice to sit outside and people watch during your meal. Biggest problem is trying to find a place to park near buy. I'd rate it 9 out... read more

NY style deli, with great food..and bakery..always busy...worth the wait..! The prices are in line with what you get..parking is sometimes a hastle because of the crowds.

On Sunday we drove into downtown St Peter looking for brunch. After finding a place to park, which is on the street and pay by the way, make sure you bring your quarters, we walked up to the Lucky Dill. I had passed this restuarant on several occasions and they always seemed to be quick busy. We found a table... More

Feeling scammed!! There is an AMAZING place North of Clearwater called The Lucky Dill Deli, that I LOVE. Some time ago I noticed one in downtown St Pete. So feeling a bit lazy & not wanting to drive an hour in traffic, we decided to hit the latter. I thought the sandwiches were AT LEAST half the size ($11) &... More

On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd rate this restaurant a 20! Great grub, great decor, great restrooms, and a place I can't wait to frequent again. All things considered, outstanding! ! ♫ ♫ ♫ !! ♪♫•*♫•♪♫♪♫•*♫•♪♫♪♫•*♫•♪♫♪♫•*♫•♪♫♪♫!! •*♫• ! Say Amen, Somebody !!

My wife and I were down town St Pete on a Saturday and could not find a place to have lunch on Beach Drive as all of the places were busy with long waits thus we decided to check the places on Central Ave and chose the Lucky Dill. It wasn't that busy and for good reason. We ordered a... More

This is a nice local place with your standard eggs, pancakes, breakfast meats that you can order from the counter. Decent portions, but nothing spectacular. If it is Saturday morning when you are in this area, go instead to the Saturday Morning Market just a few blocks down where you have so many great local vendors of all food types.... More

I was willing to try the downtown Lucky Dills after wonderful experiences at the Lucky Dills in Palm Harbor. What a letdown! Sandwiches are skimpy and prices high. I have been to this restaurant twice, and neither experience was good. Frankly, if you want a good meal, it's worth driving to Palm Harbor. This is an embarrassment to the Lucky... More

stopped in with family and friends for lunch and sat out on the sidewalk...had the Reuben and it was very good, but the sides like the potato salad and slaw were out of a jar and not very good. Think I would skip this place if by myself, but was OK with a crowd as there's plenty of choices

You order in and can sit outside but being downtown you get all the traffic noise which is disarming. But the food is BIG so be hungry!
