“Pricey, but always good food!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We ordered two sandwiches and 2 iced teas and the bill was $36.00. Yes, that's a lot, but the food is always outstanding. Would go back again. Family friendly with takeout available.

“Not kid friendly!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

Unbelievable! Five adults and a one year old grandchild. Everyone knows us since we go there frequently year round. First time for the baby who is from out of town. All ordered big dinners. Asked if they could please scramble one egg for the baby. No way! We don't do that because of the frying pans. We can make a plain omelet for $7.00 but not one egg. What?? Could not believe their answer. Sorry that we didn't walk out, but we stayed and ate. Big mistake, no one enjoyed their meal. Server was frazzled, forgot one item for each course. It was always for my daughter- in- law. I was very embarrassed. They just lost good customers, year round customers. I don't even think they care.

“"Meh" is a pretty accurate description.”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

As a Brooklyner, I take my delis seriously, and Downbeach didn't meet my standards. I ordered a few childhood favorites: blinchiki, matzo ball soup, and a chocolate egg cream. Like most delis, they brought out pickles and bread first. The portions were generous, but the pickles were underdone, and the pumpernickel just wasn't very flavorful. They brought out my egg cream, and it must have been sitting in the kitchen for a while, because it was flat, and stirring it didn't help. Admittedly, the blinchiki were quite good. Much sweeter than usual, but very good nonetheless. The matzo ball soup was cold and a huge disappointment. Anyway, you get a lot for an inexpensive price, but the food's just not very good.

“A regular favorite”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

The ONLY deli worth visiting in the area. Great brisket, great home cooked meals and great breakfasts. Consistent comfort food in a relaxed atmosphere. Love it here.
