Stopped in at the deli after being given a coupon by a man on the street. Was crowded, but the food came out quickly after ordering. We all enjoyed our various sandwiches. Loved the chicken salad and sweet tea! Would recommend as a great spot...More

This is a true New York style deli, but with friendly Southern manners. Plenty of tables, great food, and BUSY. Don't fret if it seems crowded, the line moves fast and your order is brought to your table quickly. We'll be back!

Whatever sandwich combination one can imagine, it is probably available here. Near the waterfront, the deli offers options that are not readily available downtown. King of Lunch or Queen of Casual might describe this place well. For flag-waving Americana types, the décor honors those who...More

Description
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.
