Good cheap food (for Alaska) and a substantial stock of convenience foods, alcohol, and tobacco products, Near our accommodations, so we patronized the place several times over 4 days.

Feels as though we were not treated equally as the other customers. Perhaps something that they should work on.

Just ask for what you want! They will make it for you while you wait, and you walk out with a fresh, tasty sandwich for your lunchtime pleasure. Very reasonably priced.

This is a great place to get a sandwich. I didn't have time to drive around town looking for someplace to get a decent sandwich. This was my first choice and was my best decision I made all day.

When you are hung over, go into garden island and order the steak sandwich with the dipping sauce - it is a lifesaver!! These ladies know how to cook!!

Been using the deli for years, and they haven't disappointed me yet. Large variety of meats cheeses etc. fill out just what you'd like and they deliver. The store's a bonus serving the locals in the area, and it's one of the few non chain...More

We bought 4 sandwiches for the $9.95 special. They were huge, full of meat. It came with a fountain drink and a big bag of chips.

I very much enjoy their turkey bacon provolone sandwich and their shrimp pasta salad. Great place to go for lunch. My boyfriend really likes their roast beef.
