Great pulled pork sandwich! Great atmosphere! Love the comics on the wall and the pin ball machine in the back. Very glad we got to have lunch at the Brown Dog Deli!

Enjoyed a pastrami sandwich and a turkey wrap after a short wait even at nearly 2:00 PM. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Summer in Charleston begs for air conditioning.

I would rate it a 5, but our server, Suzanne, was very cold, almost rude. My family and I were greeted warmly and were added to the wait list. Since this is a very small restaurant, we chatted with some ladies who had been to...More

Good sandwiches. We got ours to go and walked down to the park just west of here to eat since it was so crowded.

Stopped for lunch on a Sunday and the place was packed. We were fortunate to not have to wait too long. The food was terrific but it feels a little cramped given how close the tables are situated. The waitress was also swamped and it...More
