Nice little spot off the beaten path. Service was excellent and fast. The establishment was clean and following social distancing per local guidelines. The food tasted great. My only recommendation would be to inform customers that the Cuban isn’t really a Cuban. The meat and...cheese are hot and taste great. I wasn’t expecting a Cuban on a roll type thing. Otherwise good and enjoyable. I’d swing in again and try something different.More

Had brunch here with friends. We ordered a variety of lunch and breakfast foods everything was great. Quick service and quality foods. One if the best turkey sandwiches I've had in a long time.

Service was very good, the sandwich was made with quality ingredients and prepared well. Nothing over the top, just a good sandwich and chips. I enjoyed my lunch, but think it was a little over priced for the portions. I would return, but do not...think it will be a frequent stop.More

I’ve been hearing that this place is awesome, so we tried it. Totally not impressed, but the service was really awesome. Toast came with a melted spread which was not butter, and they don’t have butter at all to offer. Bacon was a little burnt,...but still tasty. They did get my eggs done scrambled hard, which is very unusual. Coffee was only OK, and two cups was almost 5 bucks. Not going back any time soon.More

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...at all. My hubby's lunch was also disappointing. He ordered a large sandwich with extra meat. Not much flavor and very little meat. Expensive for two sandwiches and soup, totally not worth it. The service was so-so and the interior of the restaurant could use an overhaul, a bit dingy. Will not be returning.More
