“Great Subs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Great Subs
Service is fair at best
Dining area layout very large and a bit dated.
Eat in or take out the best subs around

“Great lunch stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We stopped in before the lunch rush on a rainy morning after spotting this deli down near the CT shore. I had an excellent turkey and bacon sandwich, pressed on a panini press. The bread was fresh, plenty of sliced smoked turkey and fresh bacon. My mother wanted some kind of soup and had asked what was available (chili), the owner offered a seafood bisque that he had made for dinner which needed to be warmed up. She went with that and had nothing but good things to say about it.

Good food and awesome service with good prices. They don't have a full service lunch, but went out of their way to help.

“Very Bad Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

We were asked when we got there if we had a reservation and we did not and from then on we were treated like outsiders. There was only 2 tables with people at them and no one came after us so we were not taking someone's table. Took half hour just to get a menu. The owner's wife was supposed to be our waitress and she never came back to our tabl so another waitress finally came and got us drinks and at that time we asked for menus. The owners wife would walk by us and always had a miserable look on her face and Mike the owner talked to everyone else in the restaurant and never came to our table to even ask how our meal was. We definitely felt like outsiders. The potatoes that came with my meal were burnt and hard as a rock. We should have left right away because of the way we were treated!! We will never go back to this restaurant!!!

“A Tasty Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Out for a Sunday drive. I was looking for a
Nice restaurant for lunch. I seen the reviews and they sounded good.
I had a bowl of chicken soup with a Reuben. It tasted like home cook meal.
There's a lot of sandwiches to choose from. I enjoyed the lunch and will
Return if in the area.

We stopped in on our way down 95 and were greeted with a smile from Mike. Food was great and they were very hospitable.
