We've been eating at this Irish themed diner for the six years it's been under this ownership, and it is always a pleasure. Last Friday was no exception. The waitresses were filled with funny comments making my usually dour son smile despite himself. It's great fun to sit at the bar and gab with the help, but we were doing... More

I don't know what you put in your eggs, but this grill sandwich was f-n tasty! Back on Long Island, these places were only by the railroad station - and they were busy and always good! Well, there are at least tracks outside the place....

I'm a little biased, my son, while in college, worked at this deli. He loved working there, loved the owners, loved the cooks, the customers and of course the food. I only ate there one time but it was delicious, generous and reasonable. They've made some food for our parties and everything was always good. It is a deli, don't... More

Love, love this deli. The food is great can't decide which I like best the breakfast menu or the sandwich/lunch items. Both are fantastic. The owners and staff are genuinely nice and so helpful. Stop by JD'S it's worth the visit.

I stopped by for lunch today after dropping off some mail at the post office, and was greeted enthusiastically by several of the wait staff as I waited to be served. Every one seems really to like working here. My BLT made with guacamole was delicious -- seven grain toast, lettuce, tomato and a good serving of guac and crisp... More

This little place is very unassuming and you have to look twice to actually notice it in the little shopping mall in Oakland but it is an amazing deli and grill with high quality food and very reasonable pricing - if you are in the area - stop in - you will be glad you did!

My must have coffee and breakfast shop. I'm there almost every morning for the oatmeal with fresh fruit and egg white sandwich. Great food and even better service. Love this place.

My only problem with JD's is deciding what to order. Their Pastrami Ruben is the only one I can eat outside of NYC. Their Crabby Patty Sandwich (available on their specials menu once a week) is the best crab cake I found outside of New England. Their prices are very reasonable, and downright inexpensive considering the quality of ingredients. I... More

Nice deli sandwiches. Not spectacular, nor overly large, but good quality meat and fresh bread. Fairly priced. Friendly server. Cash only.

This small diner has seats for about 20 people. It has a wide range of sandwiches, almost always very fresh and well-made, with a generous amount of food. Service is at the counter only, and no credit cards are accepted. There is a ATM machine. The premises appear to be generally clean with minimal decoration but a strong identification with... More
