“Not as good as previous”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

A great location and the ambience is cool.
The food is only average at best and for a Deli it is pricey.
Maybe worth a visit for a drink just to say that you have been there.

“Horrible service but great food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

We were sat and waited for at least 25 minutes to even come take our drink orders because she said "you have to wait because I have three other tables" I knew speaking to the manager to maybe get a new server would just upset her and in turn we would probably get worse service. I've been here before and the friendliness of the staff is just nonexistent. However the food is great so if you have a couple hours to spare and don't care about great service then I suggest it.

“Manager,, YOU SHOULD HAVE HANDLE it better,,”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

First of all,, reason to write 2 is that we started at this point on a guided tour.
The drinks we got at the bar and the service you provide my wife was worth close to 5!
By that you can imagine how bad it was a couple of days later when we went in for late lunch.
The order took more than 45 min to be served, the drinks more than 30 min!
When asking for glas it took more than 10 min extra!
Everything took plenty of time and the result when claiming was totally ignored by the waitress!
Finally the Manager appeared at our table but the result of his attempts to clean up the situation was far below what you could expect.
The food was nontasting, yes its a famous place,, but I guess it lives on a thin string, at least if you count the visitors,, I wonder when this place had its glory days,,,,,
If any of the staff at Jerry´s read my review, feel free to read other that I wrote in the past,, I hate to write bad reviews, but this one have to be done as a warning for others to think twice before going to Jerry´s insted of any other place in Miami Beach..
