“Absolutely delicious!!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We stopped in the Brown Dog Deli for a quick lunch during our day in Charleston. It was absolutely delicious! We each tried a different sandwich at the recommendation of our waitress and then shared bites so we could try each them all. We all had the soup of the day which was corn and crab chowder and that was a perfect start. One of the specials of the day was a fried fish po boy that we tried along with a "turkey in the straw" pita and "apple butter jeans" panini...we all enjoyed the unique combinations and flavors in all the sandwiches. The prices were very reasonable and the food was outstanding. Don't miss the quaint little outdoor seating area all the way in the back to add some extra atmosphere to your dining experience. If we had stayed in Charleston longer we definitely would have gone back a second time!

“Great!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

I'd heard great things about this place. I finally went on a biz trip and had a $10 gift certificate. It didn't disappoint. Ordered tomato bisque soup and seafood salad over mixed greens. Both excellent. Then ordered hummus and veggie wrap to go for later. Awesome.

Ambience is laid back classic rock slightly hippie. Service was calm and polite.

Can't wait to go back and try more items

I love spicy hot foods so when I ordered a Red Alert hotdog there was Nothing to be disappointed about because it was Incredible! Also a friend with us who has a serious gluten allergy ordered a gluten-free Ruben sandwich and LOVED it!! Will definitely return to try other menu items.

“Unexpected treat amongst the downtown Charleston attractions”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We stopped for a quick, light lunch at the Brown Dog Deli in between sightseeing stops, and were thrilled with the number of menu options (including gluten free, vegan, etc), and the quality of the food. Everything we ordered was perfectly seasoned, exactly as ordered (we asked for some small modifications), and our server was wonderful. Also be sure to check out the vintage record jacket wall decor and the Evil Kinevel pinball machine.

“Gluten Free and Celiac Friendly!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Who would have thought that someplace like the Brown Dog Deli would be celiac friendly? They absolutely were! The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and offered many options for gluten free eating. Best of all the food was great and didn't break the bank for lunch!
