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

Found this on a rainy day visit to downtown St. Petersburg. I don't live in N.Y., but my father did and he always used to take us to N.Y.-style delis like this one when we travelled. Florida seems to have no shortage of them. I'm sure my dad would have liked this one. You order at the counter and they... More

Close to my business meeting & recommended by the hotel for lunch. Very tasty sandwich with lots of meat on fresh wheat bread. We sat outside and watched the activity on the street.

A NY style deli that has changed hands since we were last there 2 years ago. The burger was satisfactory and reasonably priced, but it lacked something every burger should have - a pickle, which I could have had for an extra charge of $1.29 for a "pickle dish." I didn't want a dish of pickles, just a slice of... More

Three us visited here for lunch. I got a club, and the other two split a smoked turkey and bacon sandwich and a cup of Matzoh ball soup...overall, it was just ok. To me, the ingredients weren't fresh tasting.the tomatoes were mushy and the lettuce didn't have any crunch. The bread want toasted much, but it want so bad I... More
