A must-go in Lancaster

This is a great deli for lunch, especially if you have a little time to spend. I really enjoy all of their pasta salads, especially the house pasta salad and the bacon-artichoke pasta salad. There is also a broccoli salad available. They have a nice offer in which you can get half a sandwich with a... read more

Restaurant is very clean and has a nice atmosphere. Getting our order taken was a little confusing as there was someone behind the counter who was cleaning. No one made eye contact with us so I had to ask if this was where we placed our order. The sandwiches had a LOT of meat on them. However there wasn't a... More

Four Reasons is a big-city deli in a small town. Most of the time one can easily park on the street within one block in either direction. Service is quick all the time. Seating is available at a small counter or one of many tables, a few of the tables are outdoors when the season allows. Sandwich menu has variety... More

My husband and I stopped in on a Saturday morning, and were pleasantly surprised by this gem! The inside is cozy and full of memorabilia. Exposed brick walls, artwork...the atmosphere is exactly what you would expect of a downtown cafe. We had baked goods, and they were delicious! The lunch menu looks fabulous - I can't wait to go back... More

Branching out from a visit to Hocking Hills, we happened to be in Lancaster at lunch and popped into this deli. The inside is quite large with exposed brick walls and warm wooden tables. Their menu board was pretty extensive. My husband had the "Buckeye" sandwich and it was quite large with generous servings of meat. My Red, White and... More

Four Reasons quickly became the place to go downtown for fast deli lunches, and has stayed that way for many years. The menu has had little variation over the years (not a bad thing), but it is consistently good food for a fair price. You order your food at the counter and then they bring it out to you. It's...

When visiting Lancaster a stop at Four Reasons is a must! The vast array of choices on the sandwich board is mouthwatering! My favorite is the Sherman's March, featuring grilled turkey and cream cheese! The macaroni salad is nice also! But wait.... You can't miss the bakery case! The chocolate no- bake cookies are just like the ones mom used... More

This place hits the spot for a deli. So many different option to choose from, and weekly specials that also provide variety. Atmosphere is relaxing, and the place is always so clean. Great downtown lunch experience.
