Super good corned beef, I've no doubt that the pastrami is just as good DH had the 1/2 sandwich and salad combo... Really good Greek Salad here. Couldn't leave without trying a bagel and cream cheese, just to make sure they were as yummy. Was difficult to leave with a brownie or a black n white cookie! PS. Don't forget... More

Good breakfasts, brunches and sandwiches. My wife and I visit almost every week. Also dog friendly. Staff is friendly, service quick but gets crowded for breakfast fast.

Decided to eat in the middle of my 5 mile walk Sunday am. Ordered an egg white veggie omelette. It wasn't bad. The coffee tasted old and bitter. Cheese grits ok. Nice outdoor seating was a plus.

There are no servers but the food is pretty good. You can order a sandwich and eat inside or out. They have a nice variety too. We ate here on St. Patty's Day; it was a pretty good Ruben and we were able to grab a table and enjoy all the activity outside.

Very disappointed. I ordered the Greek Salad, the veggies were not fresh. My Mother ordered the Corned Beef Ruben....The bread was soggy and the corned beef was tough. To top it off, the bathrooms were disgusting. Go someplace else!

This place advertises itself as a real New York style deli, but it doesn't come close. Portions are not large. Pastrami was cooked until it was hard. Greek salad was good. However, both restrooms were absolutely filthy!!! If we had not already ordered, we would have walked. Lots of hand sanitizer needed!!!

Saw the sign for $5 Cuban on a Tuesday, and decided to stop for a quick lunch. It was one of the best flavored sandwiches I have had (and I have access to a lot of delis in the Northeast). Decent size to be very satisfying. The cheese, the meats, the bread and the add of pork all just made... More

Ok. So a few of us were downtown St Pete looking for breakfast and found Lucky Dill via google. Three of us got our breakfast and fourth never came. The breakfast was ok, nothing to rave about. What made it for us was the fact they never brought out the fourth. After three request and three assurances the food was... More

When walking around downtown St Petersburg, this is a good choice for a quick lunch. Though the deli sandwiches don't come up to our Philadelphia or NYC standards, they are nevertheless good for Florida. Sit inside with A.C on extremely hot days. Or sit outside when it's more comfortable.

Stopped here for dinner while downtown for first Friday. I was under the impression it was associated with the Lucky Dill Deli in Palm Harbor, and I have enjoyed eating there on occasion. This place must be a poor red headed step cousin to that one. The restaurant was messy. We had to get our own menus and select our... More
