Had a half BLT sandwich and chicken poblano soup and it was delicious! Friendly staff and the new owner (since April) sat and visited with my friend and me. Can't wait to go back.

Best Reuben sandwich I've had in years Only open from 11-3. Lobster bisque was ok. Wife said her BLT was fantastic. But not in sourdough bread. She had pumpernickle

I eat here on a weekly basis. Excellent lunch menu. Everything very fresh and taste. A great variety of soups, sandwiches, and salads, and the combination of such. Sandwiches are huge...made with home made bread. Brownies are to die for. Great portions for the price.

This cozy deli has it's ups and downs over the years as owners come and go. The current proprietor has it all together and provides a fine deli dining experience, not quite to NYC standards, but top of the line for the Coastal Bend. Lots of fresh and tasty here. The menu includes a selection of salads, soups, hot and... More

We visited Apple Dumpling for lunch yesterday. My wife said the lobster bisque was the best she's ever had! The sandwiches were on fresh baked bread and delicious. The waitress was prompt and friendly. The owner Cory has done a terrific job of turning this restaurant into Rockport's new best delicatessen!

Tucked away a block off the Main Street, Apple Dumpling Deli is a nice place for lunch. Don't let the plain Jane looks of the building put you off. The salads and sandwiches are fresh and tasty.

This little restaurant is under new management and is great. The soups were wonderful, especially the house made gazpacho. Sandwiches were large and delicious. The service was quick and excellent.

Busy place, ordered a takeout sandwich and waited, and waited, and waited for it to be made. It was worth the wait, excellent sandwich and a cute place.,not sure if I would want to wait for a meal though!

My wife and I ate lunch there yesterday. Loved it! She got a salad and I got a hot sandwich. Plates were full. Very tasty. Service very good. Premises immaculate. Seating was still a little cramped. Booths would help. A place we will definitely return to

Every trip to Rockport includes a trip to the Apple Dumpling Deli. We were very sad that they were out of wheat bread and the Chicken Waldorf Salad. Those are the two things we always order. The chicken salad was just "ok"; needs some grapes or pecans or something. The sour dough bread was very good though. We finally tried... More

Thank you for the detailed review! I'm the new owner of the deli. Since I took over in April, we have re-painted, re-decorated, removed a couple tables (it was too crowded), and replaced the damaged ceiling tiles. However a leaky roof caused more damage. The good news is that the roof is being replaced now, and should be complete in... More
