Despite the closure of the movie theater next door, this Erik's [one of a chain] thrives because of outstanding sandwiches and soups [plus great carrot cake]. There is a 10% discount for seniors and this is a terrific place to get a filling, excellent, health, not-pricey lunch or dinner!

I am that person who travels with carnivores and vegans - and everything in between - gluten free, paleo, etc -- so its not always easy to find a spot for all to dine. Eric's delivers. Staff is also great - very nice.

Eric's is the best! Great deli to eat at or order to go. This location is within walking distance of Nisense Marks State Park. You can order a picnic lunch and take it to the near by beaches of to the Park.

Have been here before and had great sandwiches and service at a fair price. Most recent mid-afternoon visit was a bit disappointing. Service was non responsive, sandwich choices were lacking and pricing was higher than expected. Erik's is off my list of places to grab a bite. Starbuck's prices for treats is a deal compared to Erik's.

All the standard deli choices, all done well. The chili is especially nice on a cold day. The tomato soup is excellent too. Thanks for posting the calories for those of us who want to make good choices.

We sometimes eat a sandwich in the cafe and sometimes we take-out sandwiches to take on a hike or picnic. The service is always prompt and the sandwiches are always great! My favorite is the seasonal turkey and cranberry, but all are good. Erik's Deli is consistently very good!

We worked through lunch and ordered take out from Erik's - they have a fabulous soup and sandwich menu and everyone enjoyed their food. I especially loved the "Erik's Reuben" with pastrami and sprouts....wow!

Tired of fast food...try Erik's Deli. They have the best sandwiches in town. Plied high with the meats or veggies of your choice. The chili and clam chowder is great on a foggy day. Wonderful staff and quick service. My favorite is Abbotts Habit (hold the onions please).
