Description: East Bay Deli opened on September 11, 2001; a terrible day for America and hard day to start a business. Nonetheless, we’ve continued on; and over the last decade, we’ve become a popular place to eat for Charleston’s locals and tourists alike. East Bay Deli is a New York style deli with a distinctive southern flair that offers traditional deli favorites as well as a variety of salads, healthy sandwiches and wraps. Our food is fresh, deli-cious, affordable, and we’ve got something for every taste. Today there are seven East Bay Deli locations serving the Charleston & South Carolina area. For the last thirteen years in a row, we have been voted Charleston’s Best Deli and we strive every day to keep that tradition going strong. East Bay Deli has given the traditional New York Deli a unique southern twist. We’ve brought the best of two culturally diverse cuisines together to create a distinctive menu, and we offer a great meal at an affordable price. Where else can everyone in your family or group find their favorites? By going beyond traditional deli and offering burgers, hot dogs and French fries, as well as healthy alternatives, such as our salad bar and wraps, we have created a franchise business model that generates high revenues without creating a complicated operation.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We ate here following a trip to the aquarium which is only 2 blocks away and we were happy with the experience. I had the Itallian and fries- price was somewhat on the high end for a lunch spot but overall worth it. Would recommend and will be returning

“Afraid to touch salad bar!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

I've never been so perturbed at a restaurant!! I paid for the all you can eat salad bar. @ 10 bucks but very fresh and lots if items. Well the girl keeping it full stood by it and literally (within 5 sec) reshaped eat bin I used and replaced the spoon exactly where she wanted it. She did this yo everyone and it made me feel like I was doing something wrong. One guy even stated that we wre going to get in trouble for messing up the olives! Anyway, back off and let the customers enjoy the food. Made me not want to come back or recommend f it, and I am a local!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

This place is great for lunch. Really good salad bar and the sandwiches are so good (but big) so go hungry and make sure to get a piece of the cake of the day.

“Great value and close to Aquarium!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Following rainy day visit to SC Aquarium, we were looking for affordable meal close by within walking distance. Very fortunate to find East Bay Deli a couple of blocks away. Good value, quick courteous service - an incredible number of sandwich choices. Recommended.
