the sandwich I always have is corned beef. It comes with about 1/2 lb of corned beef on rye. It is my favorite and I usually split it with a friend. Potato salad is good as is the cole slaw.

I heard from many people that this is a great sandwich shop that has over stuffed sandwiches. Nope. Not at all what I had expected. Plain white bread, a few slices of pastrami and no toppings. Bleh... oh and it's 8 dollars for half sandwich....More

We thought this was affiliated with The Lucky Dill Deli, but were told they are not, which was made known in the service and food quality. The fries and onion rings were cold-they offered to re-fry the rings, then agreed to get a new basket....More

We visited twice – both times felt the place could you some work. The food and the service,or lack of,was below par. The whole restaurant could use a good cleaning. Will not be back. It’s not that hard to put out a decent breakfast.

This is your classic New York style deli. Food is quite good and service is decent. Not a bad place for lunch.

Tried this on a recommendation. It has obviously gone down hill. A lot of bread, very little meat. Bread burned and onion rings over cooked and greasy. Won't be back.

My fiancé and I were in downtown St. Pete for the day and were yearning for a late b'fast. Since I've dined at the Lucky Dill in Palm Harbor and always had a good experience, we opted for the one here. I walked in just...More

Bought half a pastrami sandwich, small portions, missing pickle! Ironic given the name. Food was tasty, but small portion. Supposed to be NY style, so a little disappointed with amount of pastrami.

On a recent bus trip from the local senior center we stopped at the Lucky Dill in St Petersburg for lunch. It was totally disappointing. The atmosphere is terrible. The sandwiches are expensive and do not include a side dish. The sandwich was 2 pieces...More
