First thing I noticed when I entered the restaurant was the smell of grease. After a while I placed my order, eggs with lox and onion, with side of potatoes. The food did not have correct appearance on the plate: the eggs had a funny color and were oily. The potato chunks were dark brown and appeared to have been... More

In spite of some of the negative reviews I have seen on this deli, I have always had a good experience here. This is definitely not the Carnegie Deli but it is a NY style deli experience including some of the wait staff who treat patrons like they are serving in NY. Soups are usually pretty good and my colleagues... More

Definitely average. Near my office and a regular place. Nothing too special one way or the other on this place. Food is fine, staff is fine, wait times are fine, price is fine. Good array of custom sandwiches, though I didn't like the liver sausage one.

Would give a zero if it was possible, mainly because the manager there has no customer service and is completely disrespectful. On top of that, their food is horrible!! It's right near my office so we have taken so many clients there, but nobody has ever found something "good" on the menu. But after the disrespect from the "Manager" today,... More

I do not really like to write negative about any places, but, this place does not do justice to its location, food or service. Its an average American Deli, but requires a makeover - both w.r.t food as well as atmosphere. Not as pricey ad others, but, hey, we need better food. Hopefully, am the only case where it failed.....

Just off I-285 at Johnson Ferry Rd you get a taste of NY in Hot Atlanta. The brisket sandwich is wonderful and the hand cut fries are excellent. Breakfast is also fantastic. Take out and catering are also available. Portions are huge so if you want to try something else there is plenty to share and you can get one... More

The Stage Deli or Carnegie Deli it is not by a long stretch. The Chicken soup tasted overly watered down and the noodles were not only not fully cooked...they were firm and still stuck together! The open faced turkey sandwich portion size would have made Mayor Bloomberg happy on his quest to keep people from eating too much. At The... More

Stopped in for lunch on a fairly quiet Saturday. We were seated immediately by a young lady who told us that it was her first day on the job. She was very attentive, and worked with another, more experienced waitress to take our order. Drinks were delivered quickly and the main course soon followed. We tried the corned beef and... More

We were seated and it took almost 10 minutes to have a waiter come by to take our order. We had to flag waiter down to get what was needed (refills, etc). Food was average. I have had better service in NYC itself.

We love to drop by Gruby’s whenever we’re in the neighborhood. They serve authentic New York delicatessen food (and some not so New York or Jewish). We especially like their sandwiches and matzo ball soup, but have also enjoyed their bagels and smoked fish. Their bagel chips are a treat we like to take home. They offer a reliably good... More
