If you are in and around Great Bridge, this is a great lunch stop! I have eaten here several times, always getting a great sandwich...unsure if there are later hours, as it has always been lunch that I had here

Had a hot Turkey, cheese, and bacon on white toast. Waitresses were very attentive. Luncheonette. Counter, booths, and tables with chairs. A lot of families.

This place is a Chesapeake landmark. Open for breakfast and lunch only. Good food and a great price. Definitely a "locals" hangout. The mimosas are great, too.

The City Deli is a nice place to eat. Food is always fresh. Service is great. We have stopped in this place a few times and every time we were always satisfied with the service and food.

I was looking forward to eating lunch here, I drive by everyday. Finally got a chance to try one weekend. I ordered rare roast beef on a plain bagel. The sandwich came out hot and the roast beef was cooked. Not what I had ordered...More

I revisited this restaurant recently and was very impressed. It appears that most patrons are frequent diners. I can understand why. We couldn't ask for better service and the same goes for the food. I'll definitely return again.

Traveling through on the way back from OBX. We've tried a few other breakfast places but were looking for something different. Nice clean place. Really good home fries. No surprises. Give it a try.

City Deli serves friendship and good, home-style food. They are known for their award winning Reuben sandwich. Elayne, the owner, has daily specials and homemade desserts. City Deli is well worth the stop for breakfast or lunch.

Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name...and the pancakes are nice and fluffy. You wanna be where there is service with a smile...you wanna go...
