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!

We spent $100 for 6 people to have lunch, 3 people got sandwiches with little meat. The other 3 had a normal size sandwich. There was no pickle spear on the plate. Their russian dressing has horseradish. When I asked the staff any questions, the answer I got was always " I don't know". They made no attempt to find... More

We stopped here on our way to the beach and were not disappointed! The sandwiches were huge and delicious and we came back for desserts and they were also delicious! Definitely will come back when I visit!

Ordered in lunch with coworkers and we were not impressed. I ordered a Reuben and it was not at all like the great and gigantic Reuben's I've had from the Lucky Dill in Palm Harbor - boo. Bread was greasy and a little burned, sandwich was considerably smaller than the PH location sandwich (I had no problem finishing it -... More

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
