Your stomach is rumbling and you know what that means! It’s time to grab lunch at East Bay Deli. Serving you at eleven locations across South Carolina, this New York style deli offers a wide array of fresh and healthy options that are sure to hit the spot. 

Whether you’re craving a made-to-order deli sandwich, fresh salad, or steaming cup of soup, there’s something for everyone at EBD. Jonesing for a deli dog? A giant spud piled with toppings from chili to creamy broccoli cheddar soup? Kid-favorites like mac’n’cheese, cheese quesadillas, and chicken fingers? We’ve got you covered.

Explore Our Menu

As you step up to the counter to grab your Southern Deli favorites, you’ll have to drool, err walk, past our pastry case full of decadent cakes, cheesecakes, brownies, and cookies, sure to satisfy the biggest sweet tooth. Truly authentic, our Junior’s® cheesecakes and cakes come straight from their New York kitchen. The best lunch in town MUST be paired with the best dessert…in our humble opinion, of course!

What do we recommend? It’s sometimes hard to choose, but here are some of our menu’s all-stars.


How YOU like it, is how we make it! All of our Traditional Deli sandwiches are made to order per customer specifications. Choose your favorite kind of bread and the perfect combination of toppings to truly make your sandwich “your own”. 

Just because it’s called “Traditional” doesn’t mean it can’t be fancy! Want it heated or on toasted bread? We do that too!

We recommend: 

  • Hot NY Style Pastrami with mustard, mayo, pickles and Swiss on rye bread
  • Oven Roasted Turkey with cucumbers, green peppers, red onion, and gouda on ciabatta
  • Homemade Chicken Salad with lettuce and tomato on a croissant


When you’re looking for a tried-and-true option, select from our Favorites Menu. We’ve crafted dozens of sandwiches with DELIcious flavor combinations just for you.

Along with the fan favorites of our Chief Reuben, Club Calhoun, and The Citadel, we recommend trying some of these: 

  • Patty Melt – now a double patty sandwich with melty Swiss, grilled onions, and Russian dressing on grilled rye bread
  • Lamb/Chicken Gyro – Greek flavors in the South?! Yes, we did! Your choice of chicken or lamb with feta, tomatoes, black olives and grilled onions, on grilled pita. Served with authentic Tzatziki sauce on the side
  • Dixie Darling – a triple decker sandwich with roast beef, turkey, AND Swiss with coleslaw, pepper relish (yum!), lettuce, and tomato on toasted rye.  


Keep things on the lighter side by making your sandwich a wrap or adding a salad! Here are some of our go-tos:

  • Hungry Greek Salad – stuck on the Mediterranean theme, it’s diced tomatoes, green peppers, red onions, olives, cucumbers, pepperoncini, feta on romaine with Greek Vinaigrette 
  • Make it Crunchy – Crispy fried chicken speaks to the soul especially when paired with honey mustard dressing and cheddar cheese. You can’t go wrong with a Crunchy Salad or when you need it more portable, opt for the Fried Chicken Wrap.
  • Buffalo Chicken Wrap – Buffalo chicken, romaine and blue cheese dressing on a sun-dried tomato wrap with Buffalo sauce on the side.

For the ultimate customization, craft your own unique salad creation from our full-service salad bar, available at select locations. We are firm believers in #DeliYourWay, after all.


In store and online, we have rotating specials you won’t see on our regular menu! Check out our “Online Specials” when you order on the East Bay Deli app, too. These special sandwiches and combos are often for a limited time and won’t be around for long!


Customization and substitutions are part of the East Bay Deli experience. For those looking for gluten free options, snag a sandwich on Udi’s gluten free bread, and don’t think you have to skip dessert! New to the pastry case are Individually packaged gluten-free snickerdoodles.

Potato chips come standard with deli sandwiches, but have you tried our other sides? Upgrade to slaw, fresh fruit, or a “salad” – we’re talking broccoli salad, potato salad, tuna salad, chicken salad, pasta salad. Yum.
