The clam chowder is awesome--creamy & packed with clams & bacon. Try it out! Turkey Reuben is also good--less fat & salt than a standard Reuben but still with the gooey melted Swiss cheese & sauerkraut. Getting hungry?! Get over there! Inside has a great diner atmosphere, too, and wait staff are great!

(And I particularly love the family which owns and operates the Broadway Deli). That's not the reason my wife and I are regulars - and come at least twice a month (although that alone, for us, is reason enough) - plus the food is always comforting and delicious (and the service super friendly, if occasionally out of sorts). Their blueberry... More

We walked by during a day trip and when it came time to eat we thought we would try it. I liked being able to seat ourselves. Service was dectent and friendly. Place was clean and I noticed the that one of the employees was constantly cleaning. Atmosphere was eclectic and fun with unique atrwork and pictures on the wall.... More

Stopped in for lunch. Party of four. No tables for 4 available since they were occupied by 1 or 2 people. Sit where you want was not working so well. Breakfast served all day and it seemed like that was what most diners were opting for. I'm eating gluten free so had a bowl on nice butternut squash soup with... More

My husband and I were huge fans of Broadway Delicatessen in Brunswick, Maine - we loved it! - until our last two visits. The first of the two, in July, was not good, but we brushed it off, thinking perhaps there was a new cook, or they were short on staff. When we arrived in July, we ate at the... More

I love small little cafes like this, and the Broadway Deli has great potential, but . . . . I ordered the Raisin & Nut French Toast w/ Blueberries and a side of bacon. The French Toast was barely warm when it arrived, & it was cold before I was half way done. The toast was also overcooked. The bacon... More

This is a small deli that is easily missed when walking along Main Street in Brunswick. We stopped in for a bite and to get out of the rain. I ordered the Reuben Sandwich and my wife ordered the BLT. My Reuben was as good as I've ever had, including the one I had at Katz Deli in NYC. My... More

This was our second visit to the Broadway Delicatessen. The first time was about 4 months ago. I had an egg benedict special on a cream cheese biscuit. The biscuit was a cut above and the eggs and hollandaise were very good. My husband had a basic breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, toast and potatoes. He complained that his eggs... More

Fabulous meals - had breakfast and lunch on two separate days. Thing is, place was crazy busy, yet everyone always seemed to find a place to sit without more than a minute or two wait. Noisy but easy to converse. Calm in the chaos. Food was tasty and generous. Oatmeal, fresh fruit and bacon were done just the way I... More

Although we had a long wait for a table, it was worth it. Everything was fresh and well-prepared. The best thing was the apricot-lemon scone! The surcharge for real maple syrup lowered its "value" rating.
