This place has amazing subs with all fresh ingredients. The bread is even baked fresh everyday! Make sure you go early in the summer and get in line. Sometimes they run out of bread they get so busy!

Freshly baked, thick slices of bread piled high with your favorite meat, toppings & cheese. A favorite stop for locals and visitors. Usually a line but very fast service. And a free dill pickle to go with it. Take out only.

I got a chicken salad and my husband a corn beef they were wonderful. The bread is wonderful and meat is very tender. Will be back next year.

Yes it's a liquor store, but their service and simplistic sandwich menu is just as outstanding as their fast courteous service. So get yourself a fresh sandwich (made to order) and sit down by the docks. Enjoy!!!

We were disappointed their kitchen closed early Friday evening (ran out of bread) but after having our sandwiches on Saturday, we understand why! Excellent deli sandwiches at a great price! Wish we had a place like this close to home!

We've been coming to Gurney's for 30+ years. Homemade bread and yummiesr, freshest sandwiches you can imagine. Come here, you will not be disappointed! Grab a couple train wrecks and sit at the park. Heavenly!

Don't pass up Gurney's when looking for some great sandwiches. The train wreck is wonderful. They have all your needs for a great afternoon at the lake.

Love and crave the Train Wreck sandwich with special sauce. This is a sandwich and wine shop, cash only. Pick up a sandwich and walk down to the marina or beach, where you will have a view of the harbor. .

They are all good, but I get a Train Wreck on wheat with special sauce and everything on it. The line is quite often out the door, so get there early. The line moves amazingly fast. Gurney's has been here for years and my biggest fear is that he will retire...and then what will I do? I can't live without... More
