Kid-friendly cafe with a good selection of food. The sandwiches were not quite as big as Carnegie, but that's okay. The Reuben was really good, and my daughter had a turkey and cranberry on croissant that she said was the best sandwich she'd ever had....More

This is a good place to walk to from the South Carolina Aquarium. It's less than a mile and the only place I know of that is that close to the Aquarium. It's an expensive lunch spot, with sandwiches, burgers, hotdogs, and more. The shopping...More

My daughter and I emerged from the boat tour of Fort Sumter ravenous (must have been the fresh salt air?) and didn't want to move our car from the parking garage near the boat terminal. We sought out this deli, which is only a couple...More

Every sandwich on our table looked delicious. Big portions for a good price. Really busy at lunch, so plan accordingly. It was a little messy after the lunch rush, but the staff was working so hard to keep up. I have to give them props,...More

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.
