Food was great and reasonably priced for the area. Within walking distance of the harbor cruises. Eating inside or out and the perfect place to kill time when early for the harbor cruises.

My husband and I ate here after taking a Charleston Harbor Cruise as this deli is just a street over from the Maritime wharf area. There was a line for food, but staff was quick getting orders taken and food delivered to customers. We shared a pastrami sandwich and had our own broccoli cheddar soup. The soup was very good....

We have always loved eating at this restaurant located in North Charleston. However, this time we stopped at one on 17 Hwy and were sorely disappointed in lack of corn beef on the sandwich and how gristly was the corn beef. Very disappointing.

Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your corned beef sandwich. We only use the best quality Certified Angus Beef at all of our restaurants and will be investigating why this location was serving gristly product. Sincerely, Guest Relations Manager More

Looking for a quick lunch spot after Liberty Square, this is it! The Carolina Dip is quite tasty! The bread is delicious. Spot on lunch . The only detractor was I stopped by for a late lunch/early dinner and there were a bunch of toddlers running around while their moms chatted and texted on their phones. Eventually they grabbed the...

After a morning visiting the aquarium this deli was the perfect spot to rest our feet and enjoy a great deli lunch. Loved the cuban sandwich--delicious fresh bread and quality meat. Great selection of drinks, soups, salads and sides. The lunch crowd attested to its popularity and I can see why. Plenty of seating in this high-energy deli.

Really great bakery- I mean a REAL bakery with 50 or so different items. The food is average, but stop in for coffee and a brownie or cheesecake or eclair or.... you get my drift.

We had lunch here before going out on a Charleston Harbor Tour. It is within walking distance (about 10-15 minutes) from the pier. We were a group of 9 and everyone enjoyed the wonderful sandwiches. There was a bit of a line, but it went quickly. Great place to have lunch!

We stopped at East Bay Deli after my husband did a quick search for a gluten-free lunch. What a wonderful place! There were so many options (lunchmeat, salad dressings, salads, cookies and bread!). As a gluten avoidant eater, I am very used to "making due' wherever we go. This was a pleasant surprise. We were given excellent service by Brittany!... More

We stopped by after a trip to Ft. Sumter with a coupon we got from a guy on the street. The sandwiches were very good and when our order was held up for a bit the waitress offered us some free dessert. That went a long way for us. We will certainly be back the next time we're in Charleston.

Description
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.
