Jewish Deli?

They may have SOME Jewish food, but this is no Jewish Deli. I was VERY surprised when they told me that they don't have kasha varniches!!! The corned beef, roast beef, eh! Nothing to rave about - average. Needless to say, I don't frequent there often.

Wolfies is the only restaurant in the area that serves Corn beef and Pastrami sandwiches the old fashion way: Huge portions, hot and tasty. They also offer a very nice Matzo Ball soup, Potato Pancakes, Fish and Chips as well as all the other regular meals such as Hamburgers, subs, sandwiches, salads. Their sandwiches come with coleslaw, pickles, and if... More

Excellent corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. Have been here several times and have been impressed with their sandwiches each time. Friendly staff, decent prices. Highly recommend.

Stopping at Wolfie's was a sandwich lover's delight. We wanted great deli sandwiches and Wolfie's did not disappoint us. Out of four in our party , three had the pastrami reuben and one had a chicken salad sandwich. We ordered sides of onion rings and mozzarella sticks. Everything came out as ordered and was very tastey. We will definitely return.... More

Wolfies is by far the best New York style deli you will find. Everything is the same or better than you would get in NY. Their breakfast and lunch dinning is to die for. Friendly, resonable, and delicious!

I have been meaning to try this place, as I used to go to the Wolfie's in North Miami for Jewish deli. I was in Tom's River for my Mom's funeral and needed some comfort food. So did my Jewish wife! We loved the square Knishes and enjoyed the pastrami sandwiches. We'll be back!!!

My husband and I and another couple went here for the first time last night. The place was poorly lit outside and we wondered if it was even open. We went inside and the place was empty, except for one other couple. That should have been our clue to leave. We sat at a table and placed our order. The... More

I had driven by Wolfies many times and decided to go there with the expectation of a high-quality "Jewish" sandwich. I arrived as the lunch crowd was starting to come in and my order for a corn beef on rye was taken as I was sitting-down--I got the feeling the waitress was trying to push me through quickly. When the... More

This restaurant is the only one in the area where you can get a decent bowl or cup of Matzo Ball Soup and a Corn Beef or Pastrami sandwich on rye bread with real mustard, pickles and coleslaw. All this made the old fashion way. I sometimes get a half Corn Beef and half Pastrami sandwich. Also, sometimes, I only... More

Tried to find a good Jewish type deli in this area after moving here. This was not it. Matzo ball soup was bland, knishes were greasy, and pastrami fatty, rye bread was dry. Will keep looking, not going back. Food took a long time, server was not very friendly.
