The sandwiches are big enough to share, but to good to split! You get a sandwich on a half loaf of fresh Italian bread with the freshest meats, cheeses and veggies packed inside. The other meals, are just as good! Portions are superb!

I love Regatta and wish I could go more often. The sandwiches are huge and the bread is amazing! Their steak and cheese is on point and has great flavor unlike generic ones at most places.

Sandwiches have too much bread but were good and reasonably priced. Fast service even if you order there.

Live near deli. I will never go here again!!! The place is an absolute mad house. Sandwiches are good, but plan on waiting 25 minutes for a pre made Italian sandwich. Not worth the wait. They have a terrible system for waiting on customers. They argue with other behind the counter. On several occasions they have lost my simple order.... More

I've been going to Regatta since the 90's and it's been a solid, very consistent experience. They make outstanding sandwiches. If you are not calling in your order, you need to know the process for ordering - when you walk in, go to the left and into line against the counter. Someone will eventually take your order. If you don't... More

I was in Worcester for a four day regatta with my team and this aptly named spot was within walking distance of our venue so thought we'd give it a shot. What a place and very reasonable! I'm a freak for good bread and the rolls were very good and chewy. Sandwiches are huge, good quality meats, and even rowers... More

Such nice weather in early summer. Family thought an evening picnic would be nice. We headed to Regatta Deli and arrived at about 5:45pm. Having visited many times before for lunch, we knew what we wanted...4 "regatta subs". Normally we visit for lunch takeout. They do a fabulous business and from past experience we know they have a cooler stocked... More

This deli is great, we have been going here for years. The staff is friendly, sometimes it is a little bit of a wait. They make sandwiches, soups, pasta, taco salad, deserts, pudding, drinks, chips, wraps. It's the home of the "regatta" sandwich
