Reviewed yesterday NEW

Always enjoy Too Jay's deli selections. The staff are polite and eager to serve you with a smile. The food is delish and the portion sizes are well worth the money. Great Jewish type deli.

The seats have lost their springs, the service and delivery of food was very slow. The salad was inedible, soggy and brown lettuce. The burger was cooked just right and the fries were o.k. I would never go back. The waitress just shrugged her shoulders when I showed her the disgusting salad. I use to really love this place.

Not too many Jewish delis in the Tampa-Sarasota area, especially if you are used to the abundance on the East Coast of Florida. Toojay's has several, mostly on the East Coast. But, there happens to be one in Sarasota, which has the variety and quality of its East Coast locations. Good food and good service. Very close to the Ringling... More

I can never drive past Toojays without stopping for a chopped liver, corned beef or kippered salmon platter or sandwich. Having lived in New York City for years, I can say Toojays is right up there with the best. Prices are more reasonable because the size of sandwiches is not meant to last three days. The menu is varied, with... More

How many good Jewish Delis do you find in Sarasota? Not enough! It's sad when you have a monopoly in the food service sector and always serve tasty comforting dishes all day long, but when you can't speak with the manager because he/she is in the kitchen cooking and your simple order is still not at your table after 35...

Six of us ate here the other night. The service was very slow and it took forever for the meals to arrive. The place was not terribly busy - however our sandwiches were slow coming to the table. Customers who arrived after us were served before us. As stated in title, the food was not bad just average. Have had... More

Just enjoyed a Chicken Mandarin salad. My husband had a pastrami sandwich on rye bread. Their rye bread is really worth bringing a spare home. For dessert enjoy Carrot cake. Their rugula is worth trying. The staff are very nice. The prices are moderate and the portions very generous.

TooJay's is a must for at least one lunch every time I'm in Sarasota, which is twice a year. Lunch today was once again excellent. It might be my imagination, but the portion size of their sandwiches seems to be smaller than it was a few years ago, but that's OK because in the past I thought it was too... More

Over the years we got tired of their boring menu...and overpriced meals. Were we surprised...they have a new dynamic menu with many specials under $10.00....and we had a wonderful dinner. If you were like us, and put TooJays on the back burner......try them again!!!!!
