Quality Meats & Old Time Feel

Stopped here on the way home from AC. The place reminded me of the shops I went to with my Mom 50 years ago. Got some steaks, sausage, etc. Tasted great. Looking forward to returning.

Love the selection, the process (pick your own roll and watch your sandwich being created), and the staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Don't miss their hot lunches, also. AND they are a meat market with the freshest meats and home made sausages and jerky. This is a definite go-to spot when in Brigantine

Like everything our group ordered. We did want someplace to sit and enjoy our food but there was only some sidewalk tables.

Always the freshest deli meat, being a butcher shop and all, it would be difficult not to have the best!! Staff is always so friendly and helpful. Our family always makes it a point to stop here every time we are in town, which is quite often! I highly recommend you shop here and choose your lunchtime hoagie from here... More

For me, a great sandwich has always been defined by the roll. In this case, Ernest & Sons have proven they know hoagies. You have a choice between soft or hard rolls, and I think that's a terrific option for carb lovers. I didn't get too creative with the inside of the hoagie, so I tested out a tuna with... More

We enjoy sandwiches, wraps and salads here regularly. The menu is extensive. The quality of meats and salads cannot be matched for 100 miles. When we introduce friends from out of town to this treasure, they love it. And if the sandwiches aren't enough, the butcher section is incredible, the prepared foods, the frozen foods. Amazing. Ernest is a must... More

Their made-to-order sandwiches are SO good! Fresh, high quality ingredients, good value. Their Italian market products are nice as are the meats and prepped foods.
