Best sandwiches around these parts. Anything heated like turkey, roast beef, etc. is awesome. It's real busy around lunchtime so plan accordingly.

Cute place, very interesting selection of artisan sandwiches. I don't recall the prices but they were fair for a well run, clean restaurant with a top notch sandwich. Nothing bad to say about it and will be returning!

Fantastic fresh and quality ingredients. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The Angry Turkey sandwich is my favorite item. While the food is fantastic, the parking and table availability is extremely limited. This discourages frequent visits however it is also a testament to how good the food is.

Definitely the best brisket sandwich I've ever eaten. No one else compares. Joe the chef owner is an artist at making sandwiches. Don't know how he's not famous by now. A must try for a all long islanders

Roast Sandwich House has a modest appearance from the outside so it was surprising to find it so crowded at lunch time. Yes, we waited over 30 minutes for our food and in the process learned what the locals already know - call ahead with your order. They do a booming carry out business. Excellent sandwiches and plenty of choices... More

Ate here while staying at the Marriott down the street. Excellent selection and ingredients. Small place and very popular so don't expect to sit for lunch immediately. We were here at 2pm on a Friday and it was just clearing out. Great lobster roll and chicken pesto salad.

This place is AMAZING! Everything looks so fantastic-it was very hard to choose! The customers were so friendly, they were all making suggestions to help us! We got salads and my son had a Cuban sandwich. The salads were so fresh, I almost had to go look for a garden out back! I will eat here until we leave! The... More

This place is the best in Melville. It is just a little expensive, yet it is worth it. They make everything fresh and on site. You can eat in or take out. It tuff to find a good sandwich shop in Melville. Well look no more. Roast is the place.
