Came here for lunch after wanting to try it out for a while. Got the ocean state grinder which was quite good although didn't really like the vinegar sauce on the side. The bbq pulled pork sandwich was good though felt it was somewhat dry....More

This place has above average sandwich and definitely fresh. However I feel my sandwich was a little less full than i though it would be.

We stopped in here for a mid-morning drink and quick bite. Very popular, very busy. We were served very quickly by very courteous staff. Even though we only had coffee and a small snack, we would certainly try it for a more substantial meal.

Ocean State Sandwich Company has a wide selection of sandwiches, all look good. My wife liked her tuna fish sandwich. i went for the chili. Very thick, full of steak cuts and delicious. Self-service, quick service. Perfect for a sandwich place. Parking is impossible.

This sandwich shop had some great soup choices that ranged from the traditional to the unusual. I have had the barley soup, which was hearty and delicious. I would also recommend the apple valley turkey sandwich.

Always a pleasurable visit to OSSC. From the people taking your order to the quality of the food. This lunch stop is top of the list because if they have the ingredients they will make it for you!
