We ate here twice last weekend and always order extra food to bring home. Great food and great service always! Great menu! If you love a good Jewish deli you won't be disappointed!

The worst service I’ve ever received at any restaurant. I ordered a lox and egg scramble. Forty minutes later the waitress came out and was surprised I hadn’t received my order. The table next to me, who ordered at the same time, began to commiserate...with me. They had ordered a sandwich and a salad and likewise had not been served yet. The waitress simply said that they were swamped with take out orders, no apologies, no refills on drinks. Ten minutes late my neighbors were served. Ten minutes after that I flagged down the waitress and told her it had been an hour since I ordered. She said I know they’re still swamped with take out. I canceled my order and left. No manager came over, no apology, no attention. I will never go back, they clearly do not care about their customersMore

The food here is simple but tasty. We had a filling dinner and there was an ample choice of entrees. They also offer good deli sandwiches.

Having worked in lower Manhattan, I have found memories of many fine delis . It was a pleasure to experience a good Jewish deli again , sandwiches were thick with meat ,dressing were full of flavor and fresh. Only suggestion the pickle , pepper and...tomato dish could have been fresher.would and will returnMore

This is a great restaurant and definitely more than a deli. The waitresses are pleasant and quick to please. There are usually specials posted on the chalkboard to save some money. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner at various times. Everything is excellent. Prices are...a few dollars more than most in the area, but I don't mind since it is a pleasant experience with great food.More

Love to find a good Jewish Deli a the Jersey shore. Had crisp pickles to nibble on and great rye bread with real butter. Michele was a great waitress. Got the chef to switch out my salad and bring spinach along with two veggie burgers...on one challah bun. Eating healthy lately. Bottomless glass of ice tea. Loved the menu. Lots of great choices. Great place to come back to when I start eating deli meats again.More

We headed to Downbeach Deli anticipating a delicious lunch. This was a take out order BTW I had a roast beef sandwich; it was awful; it didn't look like roast beef; more like a mystery meat - a very strange color; and it had absolutely...no flavor. I had a bite and threw it out immediately. My husband had a pastrami sandwich. It had no flavor to it either; and we know pastrami has a very distinctive flavor. That too was heaved out. Knishes were excellent however. An expensive and unpleasant experience.More

We had takeout from here and felt like Turkey Specials. They make a great sandwich and offer a regular size and a larger size with more meat. The specials were awesome and also very fresh.

I grew up in the area but have lived in several countries since then. Whenever I return to the Shore, I can’t wait to head to Downbeach Deli for their killer matzoh ball soup! I also love their ‘heart smart’ parfait & always take home...something from their terrific bakery!More
