Real deli sandwiches

We've been coming here since they opened and are never disappointed. My husband's go-to is the Rueben, and mine is the roast beef. Cole slaw is wonderful as are their canolis. We've also had breakfast here which was always good.

Well, I promised you a review on this neat place from my last review of Sugar Island Bakery. This is very casual (which is actually great!), so "comes as you are". They have breakfast, brunch, and lunch ALL DAY LONG.....I said all day long (open from sun-up to sun-down or 7ish to 4ish. Everything is so fresh, so good, and... More

I liked being able to come in the summer with my dog and sit outside! As far as the food goes it was nothing special! Not much of a New York Deli really! I'm from New York so you can't fool me with a name! I ordered the Gyro if you could even call it that... didn't taste like one... More

I liked that I could go there in the summer with my dog and sit outside! The sandwiches were okay! Not really New York style though! I'm from New York, so you can't fool me with the name! Ordered the Greek Style Gyro... if you could call it a gyro!

A great place for breakfast or lunch or even take home a fantastic sandwich for dinner. A little pricy, but well worth the prices for the great taste of well prepared food. Has a cute NY theme & the stairs going up to the second level are reminiscent of the MTA subway stairs in Manhatten. All of their overstuffed sandwiches... More

We ate here for breakfast a couple of weeks ago and it was superb . Not cheap but we'll worth it.A great selection available and all freshly cooked. Try a couple of slices of rare roast beef as a take out for later in the day,you certainly will enjoy

Woke up on husband's birthday without cake. Loops. The wonderful folks at Sugar Shack, who were too booked to be able to accommodate last-minute request, they suggested I call New York Deli. Alex, who answered my call, was friendly and clearly wanted to help. He called his Mom, June, and a few hours later I picked up the most delicious... More

The Richie Goldsand is my favorite. Just had a cheese burger here that was delicious. Their German potato and macaroni salads are really good. Friendly staff, highly recommend.

Let's face it - a sandwich shop at a beach resort doesn't have to be special to survive. but the New York Corner Deli is in no way a compromise joint. The pastrami and corned beef (the standard by which all delis are judged) on rye were outstanding. Served hot with Russian dressing was all I ever need in a... More

Best ham sandwich I've ever had in my life. So much ham it'll give ya the meat sweats. Great rolls too. Definitely a perfect place to grab lunch and take a break from the beach.
