Stopped in for breakfast and the place was empty inside at least. It's a great looking menu, but from our perception it was fairly limited, even for a NY deli. Very attentive service. Our choices of the pita breakfast sandwich and egg salad were not memorable.

If you love deli food, this is the place. Located in the Dana Point Harbor you can get a bowl of hot matzo ball soup, cream soda and pastrami on rye with pickles on the side. They have even added a nice beer selection and now offer pizza too. Been going here for years, great in the summer or winter,... More

This cozy little deli at the Harbor has a great menu and the food is simply delicious! We've been visiting Dana Point for the last 4 years during the holidays and this place is one of our favourites. The owners and staff are always super friendly and we recommend you try it.

I see the reviews are all over the place but I have to say that our experience was pleasant and the food was yummy. I had the Ham and Cheese half sandwich and it was so heaped with thin cut and tasty ham that I'm glad I didn't order the whole sandwich. I could hardly get my mouth over it.... More

Server wasn't real pleasant to us at the beginning, but warmed up as we tried to joke a bit with her. Food was served quickly and was hot. Would we go there again....probably.

We had a very good meal that they happily helped us receive fast. We were running close on time for a boat charter and they happily took care of us. The food was great, the kids meals all looked good, and the service was phenomenal.

Simply put, the food is not good. This place used to be packed with customers all the time until it changed hands, then everything went down hill.

My wife and I recently split a Whole Pastrami sandwich. It was wonderful. The rye bread was fresh and tasty. The pastrami was NY style. Had a side of fries which were extra good. And to top it off, the pickles, oh the pickles. It's not fancy dining but we sure loved it.

The breakfasts are pretty standard, not bad but also are not special. The pastrami sandwiches and corned beef sandwiches are pretty good when you have a NY deli craving. Prices are a bit high. The reason I haven't returned in some time is that every time I have been to this restaurant, the owner seems to be constantly glaring at... More
