“Great Deli, perfect for satisfying the munchies!”
Reviewed May 15, 2011

I had always knew OceanMart as "the Corner store", but it is so much more than that. The store itself is crammed, but they have EVERYTHING! I also never noticed the actual deli until recently. I ordered fries and they were great! The family environment is so welcoming. They always treat you like one if their own! Overall, highly recommended and a treasure for the bear community.

“Good food at Decent Prices, OK service--open EARLY for breakfast too.”
Reviewed October 29, 2009

The OceanMart Deli is located on the corner of Howell School Rd and Route 71 near Bear, DE. It houses a convenience style grocery store, deli and a small U.S. post office. My husband and I have stopped in here several times to pick up grocery items like bread and milk. We have also stopped here to get an occasional ice cream bar during the summer months. We noticed that they had a deli and food counter on location & wanted to give it a try. Note: It is a take-out deli & hot food counter (NO dine-in space).

So, this summer we decided to order lunch from the OceanMart Deli one day. We called ahead and ordered a large cheese steak w/ pickles on the side and an order of french fries. When we arrived, the order was not quite ready yet. So, we shopped around the small cramped store. They have a lot of stuff packed in the small space. Within about 5 minutes, our order was ready. We went to the register to pay & they did NOT have our fries with our cheese steak. So, we had to wait a few more minutes for them to make our fries since they forgot to prepare our fries. Within a few minutes, our order was up. Our total was $11.80 for the large cheese steak, order of fries & a side of deli pickles (additional charge).

While we were there, we picked up a menu in order to see what all they served. They have a pretty LARGE menu for a small deli. They have various subs, lunch meat sandwiches, cheese steaks, chicken cheese steaks, hamburgers, grilled chicken breast, fried chicken breast, grilled ham, fish sandwiches, grilled cheese, meatball subs, hot sausages, hot dogs, cheese dogs, tuna sandwiches, chef salads, egg salad, chicken salad and MORE. Some of the side items that they serve include fries, cheese fries, old bay fries, curly fries, onion rings, broccoli bites, mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders, hot wings, breaded mushrooms and breaded ravioli. I was even surprised to see that the OceanMart Deli serves breakfast items like egg sandwiches, scrapple, bacon, ham, turkey bacon, sausage patties, BLT, toast, hash browns, bagels and french toast sticks.

Overall our food from the OceanMart Deli was pretty good. The fries were probably frozen fries, but they were still pretty tasty..crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The fries only come in one size & it was a LARGE order--plenty for sharing! The cheese steak was really good and we both enjoyed it. It was not overly greasy--nor was it dried out. It was perfect. Plus the roll that they serve the cheese steak on was good quality. We definitely felt like we got good value for our money. The service was ok, but it was a little disorganized since they forgot to make our fries. Plus I really did NOT like that they charged us like 20 cents to put the deli pickles on the side instead of ON the cheese steak. I guess that covers the cost of the small plastic cup they put them in?? But, overall we had a good experience at OceanMart Deli. We will probably visit the OceanMart Deli again for a good quick and easy lunch at a decent prices.

Note: The OceanMart Deli opens early (6am everyday, except 7am on Sundays). Plus they are open until 10PM on most days.
