“3 Strikes you're OUT!!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

If you don't mind waiting, to be seated, to get service, to be served hot food,to be acknowledged at all, then go here.
If you don't mind cardboard flavored rock hard potato latkes the size of cameos, then go here.
If you don't mind under filled,overpriced, fatty and or ice cold hot meat sandwiches, then go there.
Take it from this Brooklyn , foodie, Goy, and her Bronx/Brooklyn Jewish hubby, this was my last of 7 tries, my hubby's last of 3!
Want a great Jewish deli restaurant experience , come down to Atlantic City to The Atlantic Club (former Hilton) on the boardwalk! You'll be pleasantly surprised and have enough saved shekels to try your luck!

A chopped liver side dish ,a potato kinish .,a hot pastrami sandwich and a chocolate egg cream made the 2 of us smile ....A little taste of "Brooklyn" in Ventnor ,NJ

I'm really happy to hear that you thought we were perfect, BARRYS! It sounds like you both enjoyed everything, and I appreciate you letting us know about it. I know it's been a year since you left this, but I hope you've had a chance to visit us again since then. If not, I hope we see you again soon!

All the best,

“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.
