Awesome Philly and Cali Club

My husband and I used to live on James Island and would find ourselves here atleast once a week, now we visit on vacations. The prices could be cheaper, but given their quality and location I definitely think it's reasonable. We've always had great service.

The service is extremely slow. As well as the wait time for mediocre food. The whole place needs a good cleaning. There are too many places to go besides here. Would not be the place I would choose again.

We had been there before a couple of years ago and I remember everything being so wonderful. We both chose a chicken salad that sounded so good,. Getting it back to our room , it was dry and really pretty plain, I am sure we could have chose better. The staff was still so friendly and service was quick.

Excellent, interesting sandwiches! Fresh ingredients, reasonable prices and great service! So glad we checked out this place. I had the grouper sandwich and my husband sampled the "Little Havana,", i.e., Cuban sandwich. Both were fantastic. This cute little restaurant/bar is on our short list of favorites in Folly Beach!

We have only gotten sanwiches to go from here but I think I'd be a fun place to dine in. Sanwiches were very good, bread and salads very fresh. Next time we'll dine in and have a drink with our food.

I absolutely loved this place. The service was great and the food even better. Our waiter also had an endless supply of smiles. I had the pulled - pork sandwich with potato salad and Cole slaw on the side. It was wonderful. After my vacation was over, I was still thinking about how tender the meat was. The barbecue sauce...

After having sampled nearly every sandwich on the menu, I have concluded that Drop In Deli on Folly Beach is the best bang-for-your-buck sandwich shop in all of Charleston County. I should note that I've had the pimento cheese BLT, gyro, Redneck and bratwurst multiple times each. The comeback salad dressing & pimento cheese are old family recipes from Jackson,... More

I heard great food from family who hit The Drop In for lunch - I myself didn't eat here. My husband and I stopped in for a drink after a late night dinner. It was a fun place to sit and drink, and people watch ;)

The drop-in deli is a small, no frills bar with good sandwiches. We ordered take out. I noticed right away that they use Amoroso rolls which told me they knew a thing or two about quality! I also heard from a customer, a Philadelphia native, that they have the best Philly cheesesteak in the area. We didn't get that but... More

We popped in here for a quick dinner after an afternoon of SUP. We wandered in and grabbed a seat, but weren't even noticed by staff for about 5+ minutes. When we were finally spotted the manager? told us that they had no wait staff on duty, but that the bartender (who has a great mustache, btw) would take care... More
