Love the reuben and ice cream, always stop several times during our stay. Hours are pretty restricted but it is worth making it when they are available

Everything I have ever gotten from here is the BOMB! A true NY deli with delicious sandwiches and soups. They serve breakfast all day. In the summer months they stay super busy which is always a great sign of great eats. My favorite is the corned beef and pastrami Reuben. Woohoo yummy.

I had the bagel platter, and being from New Jersey, I can say that this place does it right...bagels like you get in NY/NJ are right here! Mine was an everything, with cream cheese, salmon, tomato, red onion and capers! In North Carolina!! Unbelievable breakfast, so I came back for a Reuben for lunch and was just as happy!

I eat here when a meeting place is needed. Food is fine and the space is accommodating. I think the prices are a bit high.

My husband had the gyro lunch special, and I had the NY sandwich with American cheese. Both were very tasty. It was a bit crowded and not many options for seating downstairs, but it was worth the wait. We also enjoyed the crinkle cut fries. I don't know if I'd say it is necessarily what I think of as beach... More

Hubby and I came for lunch around 12:30... I had a cold sandwich and he had a hot sandwich. It was pretty busy- but lots of staff working the grill and behind the counter. Total time for our sandwiches was about 20-25 minutes... My sandwich was wrong and the Kaiser role was stale and hubby had Ruben.... It was good... More
