The Courtyard Deli moved behind the antique store on the corner of Broadway and Church St downtown. Great sandwiches, salads and soups! And service.

I stopped in here to nurse my 6 month old daughter. The owners were very hospitable and friendly. I tried their iced tea which hit the spot on a hot day. Their eclectic decor is supplied by the adjacent antique shop (Heritage Antiques). I definitely plan to return with my husband! If you like antiques, southern hospitality and bagel sandwiches,...

My daughter started eating their fabulous potato soup since she was only 2 years old, and she is 22 now!! Their food makes you feel loved and cared for! The owners are kind, passionate, and truly care about each and every customer. My daughter tells me going there brings out childhood happy memories back, and I agree with her. If... More

20.00$ lunch for two sandwiches. Comes with floppy pickle and 16oz drink. Cream of tomato soup was hot watery pizza sauce.

After reading the many great (and a few poor) reviews, we looked forward to a weekday off work to visit Courtyard Deli (not open on weekends). Took 2 folks along with great anticipation - three were completely disappointed! It is rare for me to struggle to fine something good to say about a diner. I love a 'dive' but this... More

I've worked one block from Courtyard for 12 years, and have eaten there at least 100 times. I never look at the menu (unless I'm bringing someone from out of town who doesn't trust me!). I just ask for the special of the day and side of the day. I don't even look to see what it is. Krissy is... More
