We Liked It

If you like Neon you'll love this place. '60s (or earlier) décor with modern twists makes for an enjoyable atmosphere. There's nothing old-fashioned about the food, though - an interesting selection of interesting options, freshly prepared in plain sight. We suggest the George Bailey (if you liked... read more

The family and I traveled to Seneca Falls for the "It's a Wonderful Life" festival. We made a day out of it and stopped here for lunch around 12:30pm. The place was mobbed. Had kind of an "old diner" feel to it, with regards to the decor and the booths. We were in no hurry so the line did not... More

Write down the address before you go -- or, you might miss it. The sandwiches were just what we were looking for -- New York style deli -- delish!

Great little sandwich place. Fresh high quality meats and good soups. Handy little stop for a quick bite while exploring Seneca Falls downtown.

We found this deli by accident - hadn't read the reviews - it's wonderful - a Classic American deli - wish we could pack it up and bring it home to England. The half sandwich is more than I could manage - my boys said the steak and cheese sub was a dream. If you get the chance - go... More

We stopped by here on our way down the channel in our boat. It is a very boat friendly place having a back entrance for boaters from the channel. The atmosphere was so cute with a 1920s flair and the sandwiches were so good! They are huge servings with ample amounts of meats and great bread! We got our sandwiches... More

While visiting Seneca Falls, we stopped in for lunch at the Downtown Deli. We split a large "Amy's Gone" club sandwich (smoked turkey, bacon) and it was delicious! The place was hopping because it was lunchtime and we observed many local business people picking up lunch which indicates to me that the locals favor this place, too! Would definitely go... More

Whenever we are on a road trip through the Finger Lakes, we make sure we stop by and have a sandwich at the Downtown Deli in Seneca Falls. Their panini sandwiches, named after characters from "Its a Wonderful Life" are deeeelicious!

Admittedly I was a little skeptical about finding this deli in the heart of central New York. It did not disappoint! The food was terrific, the sandwiches great portion for the cost, and the overall value far better than one would actually see in the city itself!
