Very average food for the price. Not impressed at all. Not sure why the place got great reviews. I much prefer Brennan’s in West long branch!

You never realize how much you may miss a good corned beef or roast beef sandwich until you return to your hometown and eat at Richard's Deli. When my brother told me about the place, my mouth watered. When my husband and I took a...More

Food is good but not outstanding. Pastrami was quite good but bread fair. Pickles lame (heard they were out of the good ones?) Matza ball soup tasteless. Stuffed cabbage ok. Only been there once so have little experience with a big menu.

A great local Italian Deli that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Owner and staff very nice! My breakfast was exceptional. Easy parking. You won't go wrong or go broke eating here! Quality with great value.

I frequent it for lunch. I have been going for years. The food is consistent and Deli style. The Macaroni salad is the best I've had anywhere !! Sandwiches are NY Deli style. Always there are specials and the soup changes daily.

There is not a private room and I don't know if they take reservations. I am surprised they didn't answer the phone. They do take orders over the phone.
