Fantastic Food With No Frills.
My parents and I came to this deli on Sunday morning, right after the place opened. there were only a few other people there besides ourselves. I had expected a slightly more refined-looking place, from what I had seen on the website. This is definitely a no-frills eatery; the focus here is on the food, not the decor.
I got the special, which was a chicken sandwich. My father got the muffaletta, and my mother got quiche, and we all also got the soup of the day. The food was made incredibly fast, and all of it was fresh, hot, and delicious.
the only thing I wasn't thrilled with was the attitudes of most of the staff. The owner was very friendly and helpful with choosing from the menu, but no one else really seemed to be in the mood to please the customer.
Not So Friendly New Yorkers.
I found these great reviews online for places to go while on vacation in Chattanooga. My wife and I decide to have dinner with my 5 year old and 2 year old at the River Street Deli. So its 7pm and we arrive to a filled restaurant with only one table available we are seated immediately. While waiting for a highchair for my son we were asked if we had a reservation. Since this is a deli and there was no mention of reservation requirements on the website or any review I had read I never thought one was required at a deli. Guess this staff did? They asked us to leave! YES, I WAS ASKED TO LEAVE. I HAVE A 2 YEAR OLD & A 5 YEAR OLD & THEY ASK US TO LEAVE. THIS IS NO WAY TO RUN ANY KIND OF BUSINESS. I HAVE NEVER BEEN TREATED THIS POORLY ANYWHERE SOUTH! MY SUGGESTION WOULD BE NOT TO PATRONIZE SUCH AN ESTABLISHMENT.
