Visited this deli on many occasions. Always enjoy the soup, and different specials. Love the canteen type of service where you can get what you like and how much of it. Always end up buying some cold cuts and some canned goods not normally found in grocery stores.

The Golden Rooster Deli has been a Kingston milestone since the early 1970's. It was owned and operated by the Larsen family and the quality of food, and the excellent service, was superior to most other restaurants/delis in Kingston. The Larsen's perfected the art of producing high-quality, great tasting food in a fast and efficient manner; not to mention that... More

One of our family's favourite spots downtown. Usually quite the line up for lunch, but once you figure out how to order properly (see other reviews) the wait is very short. We have eaten in with our small daughter (along with our jogging stroller) and had plenty of room, which can be difficult in the downtown core.

This is one of my favourite places to go for lunch when I'm in town on business. They have delicious home style fresh soups, salads and sandwiches! Everything is prepared right in front of you at the deli counter and the prices are quite reasonable considering the quality of the food.

You take a number when it's busy--sounds like a prescription for a wait, but the staff take and fill orders remarkably quickly.Lots of variety, from clam chowder to cold cuts, and great pastries. We came at noon on a Friday of Homecoming weekend, and had no trouble getting served a great lunch with freshly baked bread.

I was used to buy and cater for our condo from Golden Rooster for a very long time, excellent service and great staff. Lately i ordered open face sandwiches for the condo and got smoked meat instead of smoked salmon. Yesterday I bought baked liver pate and the taste was very different. All the staff seems new and the catering... More

Bought sandwiches here for a take-out lunch. Good value and good range. All that we bought was very tasty. We were there around lunchtime when some things had gone but still a good choice. Also does eat-in hot and cold food.

I attend the lunch time deli on a regular basis. The specials are always tasty and a good value. I usually order a soup to go as well. They are exceptionally good. Although the line-up can be intimidating, it goes pretty quickly. Staff are always friendly.

Wonderful soups, sandwiches, and prepared meals (e.g., lasagna). It's an institution of good reason. Thank you, Golden Rooster.
