I see the reviews are all over the place but I have to say that our experience was pleasant and the food was yummy. I had the Ham and Cheese half sandwich and it was so heaped with thin cut and tasty ham that I'm glad I didn't order the whole sandwich. I could hardly get my mouth over it.... More

Server wasn't real pleasant to us at the beginning, but warmed up as we tried to joke a bit with her. Food was served quickly and was hot. Would we go there again....probably.

We had a very good meal that they happily helped us receive fast. We were running close on time for a boat charter and they happily took care of us. The food was great, the kids meals all looked good, and the service was phenomenal.

The coffee was very bitter and cream and sugar couldnt help it. my lady ordered lox with scrambled eggs and the lox was extremely salty. i ordered huevos rancheros which were even... More

Simply put, the food is not good. This place used to be packed with customers all the time until it changed hands, then everything went down hill.

My wife and I recently split a Whole Pastrami sandwich. It was wonderful. The rye bread was fresh and tasty. The pastrami was NY style. Had a side of fries which were extra good. And to top it off, the pickles, oh the pickles. It's not fancy dining but we sure loved it.

The breakfasts are pretty standard, not bad but also are not special. The pastrami sandwiches and corned beef sandwiches are pretty good when you have a NY deli craving. Prices are a bit high. The reason I haven't returned in some time is that every time I have been to this restaurant, the owner seems to be constantly glaring at... More

There have been major changes in this restaurant. We went for lunch & it was filthly dirty! I asked for cleaning supplies so my arm didn't stick to the table. The tables were filled with trash and food on the floor inside & outside. UGH! The bread was stale, the portion sizes have been reduced, no more pickles or dinner... More

Great location for grabbing a lunch to bring on a boat trip. The vegetarian burrito (aka wrap) & coleslaw were both tasty and decent sized.
