Heard this place has real NY style corned beef sands. Drove 30 mins to visit and was excited. What a waste of time and money. Corned beef tasteless and thick cut. Bread feel apart at first bite. Fries were undercooked. We sat outside and I understand, outside, but the table next to us were smoking which was a total turn... More

very good Corned Beef sandwich. No pickles or cole slaw on the table. A slice of pickle comes with the sandwich and a cup of salad. No derma on the menu. Asked for extra pickles and got charged.

Came here for a little breakfast/brunch on a Saturday. I ordered the wrap that has sausage and pico in it, bill came out to about $7 and it was definitely filling! Also they have a free glass of champagne when you order an item from the brunch menu!

I should have read the reviews on this place before I wandered in for lunch. They portray this as authentic NY style deli, but other than ordering at the counter and the interior setup this place is Not a NY Deli. I should have walked right out when I saw the Sysco House Recipe ketchup on the table, its usually... More

Paid $10 for a half a roast beef sandwich with a scoop of potato salad. Actually, I paid $9 for the sandwich, it was an extra dollar for the half slice of cheese I had them add to the roast beef. Nothing to write home about. Not bad, but nothing you couldn't get elsewhere for lunch, with no service to... More

Lucky Dill has great, fresh sandwiches and sides if you're in the downtown St Pete area for lunch. There are tables inside or outside to enjoy the weather. Great eats at reasonable prices

In a street packed with restaurants in a town full of great dining, I would not go here again. However, I enjoyed my poached eggs and rye toast.

I have been to this place many times. It is the only deli place for food in downtown St Pete. The appointments are typical deli-OK tables and chairs. Some outside. Service is at the counter and they bring it to your table. Service is fine. The food is typical deli sandwiches mostly with sodas. As delis go their sandwiches are... More
