Visited this deli on many occasion, always enjoyed a quick lunch and a little shopping for some items not normally found in stores. Seems to be always busy but never had to wait to long for service.

Always love coming to this place for lunch! I love their homemade rye bread, and their egg salad and chicken salad are delicious!

This place is a Kingston staple for a lovely homestyle lunch. Today we enjoyed a schnitzel on a bun and a chicken salad sandwich on homemade bread with a side of fresh mushroom soup (huge halves of mushrooms) and a macaroni salad. Don't forget the side pickles:) the pickles here are excellent. It's always bustling in here and we have... More

My husband and I have visited this place several times for a mid-week lunch together. This is one of the best delicatessens in Kingston, and my tried-and-true favourite order is the Reuben sandwich and if my appetite allows, to finish off with a Berliner. Located along the down town Princess Street strip, a consistent favourite for a casual hearty lunch.

I love going to The Rooster. Great atmosphere, delicious food, never disappointed. If you come to Kingston, or live in Kingston you need to try The Rooster. Sandwiches are phenomenal. Salads are tasty, service is friendly and always smiling.

Authentic, wholesome food in a convenient down town location. The Reuben sandwich is particularly good. The Montreal smoked meat sandwich is also good. Great selection!

Been looking for a while for Montreal Smoked Meat delis in Kingston and pay dirt! Had a meal deal of sandwich, fries and Cole Slaw. Great meal and great deal for $10. Sandwich was excellent, fries good and loved the carrot Cole slaw! Seating for perhaps fifty people. Take out also available. Well worth it!

I've been going to Golden Rooster for years.. food is always fresh and served in plentiful portions. I've heard many great things about their hot food and sandwiches, but I can't bring myself to order anything other than their Julienne/Chef Salad every time I go, it's that good! I recommend for the great food, service and experience!

don't understand the few negative reviews, this place is what it is, and in Kingston where there are not a lot of good cheap places to eat I'll go here anytime. My favourite is their potato salad which has a hint of pickle in it. And yes breakfast is average, better places for breakfast like Star Diner, but for lunch... More
