We've been going to this place for years. Select your own roll and they make it while you wait. If you are a fan of chain sub places, prepare to have your taste buds revolt if you attempt to eat that again. You will wonder how those bland things ever qualified as a hoagie. Their Italian hoagies and the tuna... More

We had an amazing experience at Ernest and sons. We stocked up on meat, cold cuts, bread, produce and frozen dinners. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We will go every time we are in Atlantic City!

Placed a large lunch order for 12. All were pleased with their sandwich selection. While there also picked up ground beef, sweet sausage and salads. Terrific stop. Will definitely be back.

What a pleasant surprise to come upon Ernest and Son! A real butcher shop on a Main Street of Brigantine! So nice to have meat that doesn't come in plastic! And good soups, too as well as Stewart's orange cream soda!

I have read many positive reviews on this place and I truly looked forward to coming here. I must admit I was a bit disappointed when I first arrived. Oh the place is most definitely a butcher shop, but it's also a convenience store, a deli, a local hang out, and a sandwich shop. All of those things but definitely... More
