After the 12 o'clock Ft. Sumter tour, we were very ready to eat. I was very glad to have spotted this restaurant. It was an easy walk there and back to the parking garage. Service was pretty quick and we were happy with our sandwiches

Stopped for lunch. My friend and I each ordered a cup of soup and shared a sandwich. The soups were very good and sandwich was excellent. Very filling.

I have no idea how this place gets an average 4.5 score by others. We ate in 12 different restaurants while in Charleston and this one was the only bad one of the bunch. I ordered soup and salad bar. The salad bar was good...More

Overall the food was very good, with breakfast and lunch options. Club sandwiches, large (very large) baked potatoes and a fresh salad bar that had a good variety. Plenty of seating, and areas to park.

We went here for lunch on Saturday and the food and service were spot on. We tried the salad bar , Italian sandwich, grilled cheese and red velvet cake. Everything was awesome - we will be back.

We popped in for lunch and were excited to see the robust menu. My husband loved his New Yorker sandwich, which was loaded with meat. My vegetarian portobello wrap was paltry in comparison, though tasty and fresh-it was not worthy of the high price tag....More

We were in a bit of a rush, so figured a deli would be the best option to eat before our Ft. Sumter tour. We were not disappointed. It was a New York-type deli serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had delicious breakfast sandwiches to...More

They have great sandwiches and salads. The winner was a turkey with pesto that had great flavor. We had to go back on another day to sample their wonderful cake!

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.
