Great place for a quick lunch. Large portions and very fresh. I ordered the Squealing Turkey Panini and my wife ordered the Bruiser. Both were very good! Next time we'll have to try the burgers.

You would not think it would be found here. The burgers are big and savory but when we want lighter healthy fare we order the wedge salad and add the grilled chicken skewer and we are transported to the Mediterranean in simple clean flavors. Outside courtyard is one of the most pleasant outdoor places in this all around charming town.... More

I think the food was good - to be honest - but the service and the attitudes were... More

I ordered the Bruiser .. it was very good. The chips were greasy, and the sweet tea wasn't very sweet. The meal was good overall, but it was quite pricey.

We visited the area and came across the Dark City Deli & Pub. We were surprised at how delicious the food was, the best food we had. In fact it was so good that we went a second time while in the area. Jen and Bill were very friendly and the wait staff were very welcoming, they also had very... More

The Dark City Deli is one of those places your friends tell you about while they wave their hands around widely, eyes bulging while demanding that you "Have to go there"! Truly some of the best food we've eaten anywhere (and we travel extensively), great prices, the friendliest staff and owners (Jen and Bill) and a comfortable atmosphere that lends... More

Stopped by the Deli and ordered their Baby Jane Sandwich, which is a fantastic BLT, but much better than anything I have had, even my attempts at home. Lots of bacon, which has been basted with some secret sauce, (as I asked the manager for what made the bacon so great), lots of tomatoes and lettuce. This sandwich,plus the many... More
