The Schmitter is a world class sandwich -- both in taste and size -- contest worthy! Fresh turkey and ham cooked on site every day make for tremendously good sandwiches and main courses. Crab cakes are to die for. House beer is superb; wines mid-range....More

McNally’s is the only place you can get the trademarked Schmitter sandwich. It has salami, roast beef, cheese, amazing bread and a secret sauce. Simply it is amazing. I will be back. I also heard they sell this as the Citizens Bank Park.

Great beer, amazing sandwiches - even if you're vegetarian! - and a really warm, neighborhood atmosphere make this an absolute must-see stop if you're in the area. Try the coconut cake, too!
