Wowowooww SUCH a great spot. I loved their array of different sandwiches and the retro toys and vintage decor make this restaurant super unique. The staff was extremely friendly and I can't wait to take people here when they come visit.

Went for lunch and during COVID, you can get a table but all food is ordered at the front counter. If you have a table, let them know when you order and they will bring it to you. They were busy between Noon-1:30 and so we had to wait for about 10 min for a table. Just find the guy with the list and out your name on and then you can ... read more

Great food with an amazing Retro atmosphere. The food/entree names are also amazing. As a bob's burgers fan I especially appreciate a few of them even more. I wish I took pictures of my food but it was gone so quickly.. Weird. Jk. Will definitely return in the future. There are several menu items I still want to try. 😊👍 ... read more

Had to call back twice from home (got takeout) to tell them how good the smoked salmon breakfast "sandwich" on the "everything" bagel was.......
I made myself wait one day to go back for another. Ridiculously good. Going back tomorrow.

Honestly today was the first day I ever ordered from  Brown Dog Deli and let me tell you it won't be my last!

If you want to be taken back in time you will quickly be smiling and remembering many items they have on the walls of this restaurant.  From some of the original video games to the lunch boxes of the 60 & 70s (maybe earlier but I was born in the 60's).  Every original board game, toy, movie poster, etc. It had an excellent and ok nvi ... read more

My husband loved the burger he had. They have a large selection of sandwiches. Mine was delish. They also hibachi and other hot dishes. They serve beer as well as soft drinks. They stayed open and cooked for us even though it was 15 min to closing. We had come from MUSC and we're grateful.

SO THANKFUL. We showed up about 10 min before close, have been at the hospital all day and they still we're running all of their menu. We felt so horrible for walking in so late, but they took care of us. Definitely want to go back under different circumstances. Thank y'all so much.

This place is super cute and reasonably priced for lunch! I loved all the unique menu options and decided to go with the Pig n Fig, which was a lovely combination of savory (pork, BBQ sauce) and sweet (apple, fig spread). Personally, I wish the cheese was a little meltier, but it was definitely a solid sandwich.
Angela L. via - Mar 26, 2019

This is a quirky little diner with great sandwiches. Fun old 80s music memorabilia on the walls and friendly servers. Great!
