Order food at counter and it's brought to your table. Extensive menu of sandwiches, baked potatoes and salad bar. Very good food.

After 3 days of walking the town, my husband and I were exhausted- and starving!! East Bay delivered so that we didn't have to walk 2 miles to get a great meal! I had the Reuben and my husband had the Italian sub. They were great and delivered in less time than originally promised! Definitely check them out!

We visited this deli after leaving Ft Sumter. The menu options were extensive and there were many local guests as well as tourists. The sandwiches were very fresh and portions generous. We enjoyed it enough to visit another location on a subsequent day!

We stopped here after the Aquarium and the place was hopping with local people (so we had a feeling it would be good!). Most people in our party had sandwiches and the amount of meat on those was incredible! I had the salad bar and cup of soup option with a mushroom and brie soup that was AMAZING! Their salad...

I had the best chicken Caesar I've ever had. The chicken was marinated and grilled to perfection and there was plenty of it. A treat

We happened upon this place after looking for somewhere to eat lunch near the Fort Sumter ferry. Great selection of sandwiches and salads. Outside seating was very popular on a very warm February day.

We stopped here in between touring. My husband and I assumed we could get something for out daughters but might not be so lucky with our dietary restrictions. Not true.

Waiting for our ferry ride to Ft. Sumter, we walked the five minutes to East Bay Deli on a mission for cold drinks. Given how packed the place was, we ventured back after our journey to sample sandwiches, chips and goodies. All really good! We took a goodly portion back to our hotel. Great location not far from the Aquarium... More

The best sandwiches in Charleston for the price, in my opinion. Close to the Aquarium and the wharf, it's a winner for sure. Very reasonable and friendly.

Description
East Bay Deli opened on September 11, 2001; a terrible day for America and hard day to start a business. Nonetheless, we’ve continued on; and over the last decade, we’ve become a popular place to eat for Charleston’s locals and tourists alike. East Bay Deli is a New York style deli with a distinctive southern flair that offers traditional deli favorites as well as a variety of salads, healthy sandwiches and wraps. Our food is fresh, deli-cious, affordable, and we’ve got something for every taste.

Today there are seven East Bay Deli locations serving the Charleston & South Carolina area. For the last thirteen years in a row, we have been voted Charleston’s Best Deli and we strive every day to keep that tradition going strong.

East Bay Deli has given the traditional New York Deli a unique southern twist. We’ve brought the best of two culturally diverse cuisines together to create a distinctive menu, and we offer a great meal at an affordable price. Where else can everyone in your family or group find their favorites? By going beyond traditional deli and offering burgers, hot dogs and French fries, as well as healthy alternatives, such as our salad bar and wraps, we have created a franchise business model that generates high revenues without creating a complicated operation.
