The sandwich comes in 2 sizes the large is huge and more than enough for 2 and the some, they are very generous with the meat and it always fresh

We stopped for lunch and had a turkey sub. The bread was hard but they tasted ok. The shop was clean but I would skip the place and drive a few miles for a much better sub.

Small deli with just a few seats. A lot of take out business. Try some of the hot dogs smothered in everything. Yum!

Stopped in to pick up sandwiches while son and daughter-in-law were moving to NC. All Boar's Head deli meats, very fresh toppings, GREAT rolls (straight from New York). Reasonably priced and delicious.

Pretty disappointed. While others commented on friendliness of staff, we weren't treated politely. No "thank you's" or "your welcome." Advertise as a NY deli, ordered corned beef on rye, expecting NY taste, received a dry sandwich with little taste. Italian cold cut was good, but nothing to stop back for.

I really like their tuna and macaroni salads. Not too much mayo and lots of veggies in the macaroni salad.

I have a business here in Calabash and order from Sub 17 a few times a week. The sandwiches are great, especially the paninis. Greg delivers quickly and with a smile. The bread is authentic and crispy. Highly recommend. The real deal. Can't say enough about the quality and service. Support small business!!

Third year we have visited Sub 17 for lunch while on vacation. Seems to get a little more popular every year. What makes them so good is the New York style bread. Want a good sub, skip Subway and give Sub 17 a try.

All the sandwiches you could wish for and then some with plenty of specialty combo's. $$ off coupon on all the local supermarket checkout receipts backs as well as the local papers, which help keep the budget minded on their budgets.

Good lunch place, but operators are very stingy with the meat on your sandwiches. Ask for more meat.
