Grabbed a few items for lunch. Soup was tremendous. Their buffet is small but good. Great place to have in your neighborhood.

I actually ate here on two different occasions. I had one of there prepared deli sandwiches and was more than happy with the flavor. The next time I ordered a pizza that was freshly prepared and tasted wonderful. I would have lunch here again.

We had lunch in the new glassed in terrace of Wagshal's. The sandwiches were as good as usual. The change for the better was the selection of inexpensive wines to accompany the meal. The noise level at 12:30 was high. By 1:30 PM, the sunroom...More

Not bad, but not great either. We aware in the sit down part of the deli. Be clear, it is not the menu you see online - much slimmer menu. The wait staff didn't know the ingredients. Not minute questions, but simple ones like "does...More
