We stopped in for a quick bite before our Fort Sumter tour. I explained to the cashier we had celiac disease and she told me a few choices. I ordered. Thankfully I asked when my salad came out if this was gluten free. This person...More

We had to find food after touring Fort Sumter and before braving the Patriots Point museum so we drove around the area near the parking garage, using our phones to search for food. We found this little gem. My wife and I split a BBQ...More

This place has a little bit of everything. One of those things is a kicking salad bar. The service was friendly and quick.

After leaving the Fort Sumter tour, we were given coupons for the East Bay Deli, so we decided to give it a try. It was delicious. We had Tuscan turkey and pulled pork sandwiches. The service was fast and our orders were accurate.

This is a true New York style deli, but with friendly Southern manners. Plenty of tables, great food, and BUSY. Don't fret if it seems crowded, the line moves fast and your order is brought to your table quickly. We'll be back!

East Bay Deli opened on September 11, 2001; a terrible day for America and hard day to start a business. Nonetheless, we’ve continued on; and over the last decade, we’ve become a popular place to eat for Charleston’s locals and tourists alike. East Bay Deli is a New York style deli with a distinctive southern flair that offers traditional deli favorites as well as a variety of salads, healthy sandwiches and wraps. Our food is fresh, deli-cious, affordable, and we’ve got something for every taste.

Today there are seven East Bay Deli locations serving the Charleston & South Carolina area. For the last thirteen years in a row, we have been voted Charleston’s Best Deli and we strive every day to keep that tradition going strong.

East Bay Deli has given the traditional New York Deli a unique southern twist. We’ve brought the best of two culturally diverse cuisines together to create a distinctive menu, and we offer a great meal at an affordable price. Where else can everyone in your family or group find their favorites? By going beyond traditional deli and offering burgers, hot dogs and French fries, as well as healthy alternatives, such as our salad bar and wraps, we have created a franchise business model that generates high revenues without creating a complicated operation.
