We were in need of a quick lunch and we found this little spot. There were not a lot of places open at the time as it was a day or 2 after Hermine hit. My husband and I each got a sandwich and chips to go. Both sandwiches were fresh and came with some yummy chips, I can't remember... More

We were fortunate to not be flooded by the storm like many places. The chips you enjoyed are made by Zapps and are indeed a very good chip. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! More

We were touring the island when hunger set in. The Deli is situated on the 2nd floor with an enclosed porch seating area (A/C and heated) with a great view of the harbor and sport fishing fleet. We ordered the Shrimp Poorboy, which my sister raved about and the Crabcake Sandwich special which I very much enjoyed. Sandwiches come with... More

Eaten here several times. Usually for lunch before or after a half day charter. Sandwiches are very good...a little pricey, but not objectionable. Friendly staff. Recommended.

I had the Reuben of which I was glad I couldn't finish it all and got to take some home to enjoy later. Dennis and the boys had the Famous Shrimp Burger which they all enjoyed!! We were... More

Thank you so much for your review. We get a lot of positive feedback for our Shrimp Burger it's nice to see the Reuben get some love as well. If you have a well behaved dog and our other diners don't mind we do allow pets on the porch. Glad you enjoyed your visit. More

Horrible food. Service wasn't that great. Save your money. Processed meats and expensive. Stools are income triable to sit at. Not a nice experience.

Yes we do use processed meats, as does every other deli we have ever been too. We don't have the area to raise our own cattle, butcher them and then cook to order. We use high quality Block and Barrel brand meat and cheese. If you didn't want a processed meat next time I would suggest ordering one of our... More

The crab cake sandwich was so delicious. An enclosed porch allowed us to eat in the air conditioning. We rode our bikes there from our campground.

We stopped in at 9 am for three biscuits to eat on the ferry ride to ocracoke. We are still here at 955a for our three biscuits. Never again. I understand their grill was backed up earlier but there are four families waiting and we've been waiting for quite some time. We should have left and just ate a snickers... More

The only other restaurant in Hatteras that serves breakfast (Sonny's) had to close unexpectedly during breakfast hour for the first time ever. So a popular restaurant that seats 70-80 at a time closed and everyone came to a place that seats 30. We are a deli and do not have wait staff so the ONE cook and ONE prep and... More
