By far the best sub you will ever get - don't confuse this family run establishment with Jersey Mike's. Jersey Mike's is a Subway type shop. This is the real deal.

They truly make the best subs. I've never found anything better, anywhere. No matter what you order, you'll be happy with it. Add a fresh pickle to put your meal over the top.

Before the franchising and the copy cats there was Mike's subs in Keyport. These are thick with meat, and huge. A half sub is bigger than the large at Jersey Mike's and competitors. Dollar for dollar you can't beat this landmark (rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy) on the Keyport waterfront. If the weather is nice grab a sub and a coke... More

Gus has been running Mike's since the 1960s and it has always been the original, best place to get a wide variety of submarine sandwiches (also known elsewhere as hoagies). The building was wiped out when Sandy hit (as it is right on the bay), but Gus rebuilt and it's as good as ever. Anyone who grew up in Keyport... More

a take out sub sandwich place that has been around a very long time and it is always delicious and very busy. It is right on the beach front and you can sit in your car or on the benches and enjoy the locals fishing and the sailboats too.

Clearly a better sub. The salami and other meats were noticeably better than mass marketed sub shops. The bread was very good and fresh....but more importantly tasty, unlike the invisible taste of many sub breads. The shop is convenient, clean and happy. The prices are reasonable. Worth a stop.

Thank Robert S
