We've eaten here quite a few times as it's one of the most popular in Burnsville. Lunch is usually pretty good and this time we enjoyed tuna salad and taco salad; both were good and had generous portions which we enjoyed. Service is prompt and...More

The garden deli is one of the best restaurants in Burnsville. The food is always delicious. I haven't found anything that I dislike about this restaurant.

The Garden Deli is outstanding. The front porch looked very inviting - we would have sat there if it was better weather. The inside is comfortable. The wait staff do a great job. My kids and I each had a "basket" - grouper, chicken, shrimp,...More

This is a nice little dinner spot - nothing fancy, but a perfectly nice place to grab a bit before we went to the Parkway Playhouse.

Food was fine. Had a sandwich with salad and chili. Chili was tasty. Bread was fresh but overall sandwich was just ok. Salad dressing was too thick. 3.5 out of 4.

Garden Deli is hidden under the cool shade of its trademark weeping willow tree on Burnsville's historic Town Square. We offer a lush garden setting for outside dining either under our tree, or under a covered deck 6 months out of the year. We also offer a full-size dining room inside with natural wood walls, hand-made lanterns, and oil paintings of local landscapes. We have a fireplace and a cozy atmosphere during the colder months, as we are open year-round.
