Fast service and really good food. Have never had a problem finding a place to sit
This is a beautiful location. The food was great and the staff were friendly. Would definitely go to this location again. College and business area. Busy location with quick service.
Great sandwiches. Even better Desserts!!
This is one of my favorite downtown spots. I love the gyro, tried chicken wrap, and the East Bay burger.
This is an outstanding place with a wide variety of different foods. My personal recommendations are the double cheeseburger, the salad bar, and the enormous cakes and cheesecakes they display. It's s little pricier than similar options, but totally worth it for lunch or dinner on occasion. The location is West Columbia is much the same, but I like the arrangement of that physical location somewhat better than this one.
Tried East Bay for the first time today, and I really enjoyed the food and experience. It's a little bit of a walk from my job, but well worth it for how delicious it was. Definitely will be coming again.
Great location! Excellent service & food. Large portions too!
Their burgers are huge I'm very tasty
Good food!! Good customer service!!
Broccoli spud was horrible. I was very disappointed!
Best salad bar! Very clean! Great changeover. Not been sitting out there. Great selection!
Can never go wrong here. I've had the chef salad, French dip, chili, devil's cheesecake, and chocolate cake. My taste buds are continuously and consistently pleased when I come to this restaurant. I'm usually thinking about the food days after I've eaten it. It's worth the money!
Great place for fast, freshly made, fairly inexpensive food. This picture is the Western omelet, toast and I chose fruit instead of the hash browns... for less than $7? Done!
First and it was great, That buttermilk chicken biscuit was sickkkkkk!
Had lunch here. Our 1st time to Columbia. Very good. Had turkey on a croissant. Very interesting atmosphere. Lines were a bit ling but moved quickly. Plenty of tables. Average price
I enjoyed my food at East Bay, but I was extremely disappointed that even though I chose to eat-in instead of take my food to-go, I was still served my food and beverage in single-use plastic containers instead of real dishes/cups. In addition, only plastic silverware was available. I prefer to eat in restaurants that value not only quality of the food but also how it is served. I would love to eat here again but will not as long as single-use plastics are a part of the experience. Purchasing reusable bowls, cups, and silverware would save the restaurant money long-term, and the amount of waste produced by this establishment would be significantly less. Thank you for your time and consideration.
The sandwich was mediocre. I would not recommend.
Wide selection of sandwiches and salads including a fresh salad bar. Indoor and outdoor seating on Main St. On the pricier side, but good-sized portions. Gets busy for lunch.
Great food, good service but a little pricey.
Never again- it’s boring
Excellent you have to go there soon AWESOME,EXCELLENT,FAST,GREAT.
Great atmosphere, friendly service!
Very good value.
Historic district, across from Columbia Art Museum. Good food, desserts, & coffee. Crowded at week day lunch.
Fresh grinds and games on the telly, nice windows too
Great food and service.
Swift, friendly service. Clean. Decent food.
Delicious food for good prices!
The downtown location is a disappointment. I walked in and stood in front of three employees and it took them almost 7 minutes to acknowledge that I was there and to wait on me. There was only one other person in the restaurant at that time and they were seated. Apparently, I had interrupted a particularly meaningful conversation as they seemed irritated at my presence. I was treated to short, snappy answers to my questions and my order. Once my order was finally filled, it was placed behind the baskets of cookies and other treats on the counter, and the girl walked off. I have very bad shoulders due to arthritis and struggled to reach and retrieve my order so that I could leave. Although it was obvious to all behind the counter that I could not reach my order, NO ONE OFFERED TO MOVE IT TOWARD ME OR HAND IT TO ME. I shall not return not spend my money there again. Should I desire East Bay food in the future, I will drive to the one on Hwy 378 across from Lexington Hospital. I have had excellent service at the West Columbia location. In as much as I live in Forest Acres, I think that speaks to my desire to have better service. I hope the downtown Columbia location will devote a bit of time to customer service training.
I go here a lot for lunch. Good service great food. Make sure you sign up for the reward program so you can get a free meal after the 10th visit.
First time here. I absolutely loved it!!! The food was great, but wished I had of seen the salad bar first or I would have gotten that. Great customer service.
It's alright, food was good and fresh, just a bit over priced in my opinion and I feel like there are better options around Columbia.
This place is absolutely delicious. Everything. The salad bar, the tea, the cakes are major impressive! We live sitting out on the patio and watching the city stream past us. This is our go to lunch spot downtown. Very delicious for the cost.
The food was good! I always enjoy the salad bar.
Great customer service when my food wasn't ready they offered to bring the food out to me knowing that my dog was in the car.
Very good. Delicious salad bar. A little overpriced.
Food was delicious and customer service was good. The food is a bit pricey but good.
I Ate here for dinner before a concert, food tasted fine, but then the next day my Girlfriend and I were both violently sick, and I mean Violent!! I will absolutely never eat here again. Stay away unless you want to lose a few pounds.
Great food, and customer service.
Very good deli offering wide variety of fresh selections and classics. Staff is friendly and service is fast- even with a long line. The location is perfectly centered downtown for a nice walk from anywhere in the CBD.
Conveniently located, good quality food, New York style deli, gourmet delicious cakes, fast service.
Service was excellent food great
Good food. Had the NY Yankee sandwich. Real pastrami!
Great chicken salad.
Good food and gluten free food
Great place to eat terrific menu
Can't believe I've never stopped by! First off, they are very clean and spotless. They also have hand sanitizing stations everywhere. They deliver the food to your table with gloves on. The employees are very friendly, and most importantly the food is delicious! They have an extensive menu so your sure to find something for you :)
I got an Italian sub thing and it was delightful!! I'd love to eat here more often!
Best deli sandwich I've had in Cola yet.
Clean establishment maybe the veggie wrap was too clean that it was tasteless
Nice people and wonderful delivery guy
What a great place for lunch!
Super good menu and great service. Very clean facility. Staff very friendly and prompt service.
Love this location. Came here for lunch. Nice sandwich place on Main St.
HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT. My coworker and I ordered lunch from here today. We saw that there was a $3.00 delivery fee so I called to place the order and asked the young lady if we would both be charged a delivery fee. She stated that if we both used credit cards we would but if one of us used cash they could split the fee so we ordered. When the delivery driver arrived we both were charged $3.00 delivery fees on orders less than $10.00. I explained to the deliver driver what I was told and he called the manager who said there was nothing he could do. I sent my order back because I refuse to pay a $3.00 delivery fee for a $6.00 spud. I called the manager who still said there was nothing he could do. A i asked was that 1 of the delivery fees be take off so she and I could split it like we were told we could do. Why is that so much to ask for? As a manager customer service should be a priority and in this establishment it is NOT.
Excellent deli. $$$$$. The best NY cheesecake in Columbia.
Always great for Sunday lunch.
Popular place but lines move fast and food is good.
The food is bland and expensive. For $10, a sandwich shouldn't be a chore to eat. It should be decent. On the bright side, it's convenient!
Nice, clean bathrooms which are easily accessible from the neighboring Marriott. However, I noticed this business supported the anti-wall anti-Trump movie at the local theatre, but forbids non customers from using their toilets. As a victim of violent crime in Cbia, I would like to see less hypocritical behavior on behalf of Colombia's left wing establishments - please open your restroom to our city's primarily African-American homeless population, and give them free food as well.
VERY NICE PLACE MY WIFE LOVES IT SO DID I WE WILL BE SEEING THEM SOON AND WE RECOMMEND THIS VERY NICE STAFF AND RESTAURANT SAM WAS GREAT AND JENNIFER WAS WONDERFUL AS WELL !!!!!!!
Nice place... Will be back!
Customer service was good but I was not happy with my sandwich. I got what I think was called the Chicken Charleston because l called and asked for a Philly style sandwich. I paid almost $11 for this sandwich. When I received my sandwich I was initially very disappointed in the amount of meat that was on it. The sandwich was very dry even though it had honey mustard on it. I asked for extra onions and no peppers but I fought to find any onions. There was small amount of chips and no pickle as promised by the young lady on the phone. To be a pregnant woman with food cravings, it broke my hungry heart to receive that mediocracry in an $11 sandwich.
Good Food. A bit pricey $15 for a burger, fries and a drink.
Food was delicious, Friendly service and nice atmosphere. You definitely have to try the Italian sub.
Food is tasty with high quality ingredients, but pricey for sandwiches and chips. Average cost of any lunch plus drink runs about $13+. The staff are very nice and service is excellent. Also, pleasant atmosphere but a major ding for having all the TVs tuned to Fox News.
I ordered via delivery. One salad was not delivered. I called and let them know. They said it would be delivered asap. I have been waiting 20 min..... Unacceptable. Never got my salad had to call again and schedule a refund. I wont be ordering from them for a long time. Correct, I wasn't waiting for your delivery person. You never called me to tell me the salad has arrived. If you call to let me know about the original delivery, then you should call to nofity my about supplemental delivery. I am not going to wait for you while the rest of my family was having lunch.
Great place to stop and eat. Multiple choices and very fresh food! Enjoyed immensely!
Great breakfast and lunch
Great food customer service could be a little bit more friendlier.
Taste food at comparable prices. Very very busy at lunch. Fast service and they do delivery or pick up too.
Gotta be honest. Not a great experience. Maybe I caught you at a bad time. 8:00 tonight. Counter staff were polite, but the guys behind the pass were clearly distracted. Lots of vulgarity and talking about "taking acid." I waited about 30 minutes for my Chicken Charleston which was cold. Fries were overcooked and stale. Sorry... I had high hopes.
Great food; good price. No problems.
The deli is downtown just a few short blocks from the Columbia Art museum and the state capitol building. Service was good and friendly and with a smile. My sandwich was excellent. The salad bar was also well appointed with fresh ingredients including several types of lettuce and veggies. There was also fresh fruit on the bar. Highly recommended.
The woman who took my order was very polite and curtious but the when I told the lady that brought my food to me and I told her that the order was wrong that I asked for regular fies not the home fries she got an aditude, thenit took at least thwel minute for the replacement and when the same lady brought out my fries she didn't place them on the table she all but threw them an walked off, I have been a patron of Eastbay for almost a year now and have never been treated with such disrespec.. I am not sure what her name is, but it's 8:55am on Thursday August 24th and if I was her supervisor iwould at least give her a Stern talking to and send her home for the rest of the da, well she says she's one of the managers but I don't believe it because like I said i'vr been coming here for a while and unless she was hired as a manager as far as I know the manager for this shift is one of the cooks
East Bay Deli on Main Street is my personal favorite deli spot in Columbia! With a huge selection items on the menu you will NOT be disappointed! Have yourself a nice cold sweet tea and a plate (or two...okay maybe three) from the salad bar.
BEST DAMN DELI I'VE EVER HAD. MANY SELECTIONS AND SALAD BAR OMG! IF YOU NEAR DOWNTOWN IT'S A MUST-HAVE WISH I COULD GIVE 10 STARS **********
The place is packed for lunch and provides good sandwiches. It's a good place in the downtown to grab a bite. It has a kind of cult following because of its existence in Charleston as well.
My new favorite spot!!!! Loved it.
First time visiting. Food was good and the cashier was great help choosing a vegan option.
Food is standard fastfood. Nothing special, frozen, microwaved and fried.
So....we ordered a Cuban sandwich and an Italian sandwich at the downtown Columbia location. During the ring up, the register freezes up. The cashier assured us that the kitchen received the order, and that they would bring our order out shortly. We sat and watched the rest of our party get their food. The kitchen never got our order, and the young cashier and manager never apologized. ..just blamed it on the register. The register is NOT the one that told us our food would be out shortly. Sorry customer service from the new generation.
Tasty food, my turkey cranberry, and cheese sandwich was very good.
As far as delis go, it's a solid choice. I hear the Caesar Salad is especially good.
Nice location. Extremely quick and efficient service, great proximity to hotels and shops. Food excellent, as always —Easy Bay Deli is always awesome. Readable prices and great menu. Clean location. Very limited parking with just a couple spots upfront.
This is a business that seems to be geared towards high volume sales and has a very upbeat and colegey vibe to it. I have gone in and snooped around a couple times and the people working here seemed helpful and nothing seemed out of sorts about this business. Your typical cafeteriaesque deli style place with the checkered tile floor.
It was my first time there and I must admit, I was quite impressed. The food was delicious and the menu was much more expansive than I expected. I will definitely return.
Great salad bar. Great atmosphere. Really good chili. Fantastic location
Customer' service was bad.
The salad bar is great! They have a lot fresh selections and unlimited refills
A bit pricey. The sandwich was great to the eye and big but bland. Plain chips that comes with it, bland too.
Clean, nice view from all seats of Main St
Great atmosphere and wonder quality of food. A bit pricey, but well worth it!
The Cuban was decent (a bit sloppy like it was just thrown together), but the employees were pretty rude. Seating was fairly cramped as well. Maybe I'm just spoiled by frequenting the original in Charleston, but I was not impressed.
Great food nice place
Very good lunch with great customer service
Convenient place to eat downtown. A good selection of sandwiches. Prices are a bit higher than elsewhere, but probably because their rent may be high.
I stumbled upon this place during the annual Latin Festival in the downtown Columbia area. The staff was super friendly, the bathrooms were clean, the grilled cheese & chicken finger kids meals were the best kids meals I've had... ANYWHERE! I definitely recommend this location!
Place was really good. The staff was pretty funny. Nice fixings bar too. I recommend it
Food was good, but the people who work there are kinda rude!
Great food and quick service! Incredible desserts!
Loved the GLUTEN FREE bread my sandwich was made with.
Great place to lunch in downtown Columbia. It can get crowded, but there is indoor and outdoor seating. Sandwiches are huge, salads are very good, and large slices of desserts. My favorite is the carrot cake. Delivery is also fast. Gluten free options! Great staff. I left my wallet on the table a few visits agoand didn't realize it till hours later. Got it back with everything in tact.
So cute! I went with a friend for her birthday lunch after we did outdoor yoga on the square and a tour of the Columbia Art Museum. My cuban was very good. EBD has a salad bar. I haven't tried this bar, but the EBD across from Lexington Hospital has a fantastic salad bar.
Good food. Nice staff. Clean restaurant
Excellent place! This is definitely great for a quick lunch or dinner. There are a wide range of sandwiches and other deli-like options to choose from here. If you happen to be passing through, definitely check this out.
Great place to grab a bite. Awesome staff and food!
Great food and great service
One tea container tasted like the mop bucket smells and the other tea container tasted like 99 percent sugar... If not for that I would give them a 5. Food and everything else was awesome.
Nice new restaurant. Friendly and helpful service.
I love the waiter with happy go lucky personality. The respect and care she has for her customer
Great food and good prices! The all you can eat salad bar has great variety, and is kept well stocked. Overall, very pleasant and clean appearance.
Excellent lunch spot. Went for the first time recently and was impressed. Now it’s a regular stop. Love the salad bar. Everything Ive ordered so far has been very good.
Hands down best cold cut sandwich that I've had in a while and it was delicious!! I has the Reuben!! Omg!!
Better than the average deli. There's better and there is much much worse. Good spot if you're on main street and need a quick bite.
The place clean! Spotless even! The staff welcomed us as soon as we entered. We ordered and our food was delivered soon after to our table. Burger was very good. Turkey cranberry was tasty but nothing special.
The food was ok. But the lemonade, fruit punch and sweet tea was very watered down.
Good food, good menu variety, friendly staff. I went during peak lunch time, and the wait was still minimal for my order. About a 10 minute wait. Only gave 4 out of 5 stars because the tables weren't getting bussed in a timely manner. Most of the incoming customers were having to sit at dirty tables. But, like I said, it was very busy. They should hire an extra person during peak hours to keep the restaurant more presentable. Otherwise, it was a very positive experience.
Fast service, good food. They have a great selection of sandwiches or you can choose the salad bar. This location is accessible by a short walk from anywhere downtown, since parking nearby is usually full. If desired, you can sit inside or out depending on the weather.
I was so happy to find this place! The portion size was great. The restaurant was clean and the staff was very friendly. I will definitely be returning!
Had breakfast there for two mornings. Food was good and reasonably priced. Service was cheerful. Outdoor eating if you like. Coffee was excellent!
The customer service was terrible. I split a turkey patty melt and Greek salad with a coworker. The Greek salad with chicken had these little pieces of hard chicken that you could break your teeth on. I ordered lots of olives and tomatoes. There was only 5 cubes of tomato and 7 sliced blck olives on it. Yes, I counted. The patty melt was decent but not worth $9. I ordered a drink and had t beg for the cup. The guy just handed me a bag and walked away. I will not waste my money here again.
The food here is great, however delivery is a minimum order of $15 and they still charge you a $3 delivery fee. I can't justify paying well over $20 for lunch for one person. :(
Did an online order on a busy Wednesday lunch rush and was still able to walk right in and pickup my order in a matter of a few minutes. Really enjoyed the wrap I ordered too!
Excellent food.Great salad bar.Awesome huge and delicious cake slices.
My chill dog was so good.
All their food is amazing. We have literally never purchased anything from here that we have not liked. The chili dogs, Charleston chicken and Cuban sandwich are my personal favorite.
If I could give a negative review I would. We ordered 2 hours ago, still no food, and we got a call a hour ago the guy had the right address went to the wrong place. So close to canceling my order and just saying forget it. Plus we are getting charged a extra 3 dollars as an additional delivery fee due to the delivery guy going to the wrong place.
Extremely dissapointed!! Ordered delivery through grubhub. Half the order was missing (a water and also a potato). Called restaurant as soon as i opened the bag within 3 minutes of delivery driver leaving. Girl on phone had an attitude but said she would send someone with rest of order...... Restaurant is less than 2 miles from location and it has been over an hour and noone has been back. after just checking reviews on grubhub, its happened before for them to forget things and never send the rest. So dissapointed!! Continuation: after an hour and a half of waiting i called grubhub to complain. They spoke with restaurant and was told there was no delivery driver and would be a while longer. Decided to just get a refund for missing items. Will order from somewhere else i guess.
There was barely any meat on my take out sandwich and the tomato had the stem in it. This place is bad.
My family and I LOVE some East Bay Deli. Our first experience was in Charleston, SC and we have enjoyed every visit since. We have eaten at two restaurants in Charleston and to restaurants in Columbia as what. I live in Florence and really hope they would open up a store there.
Not bad. Food’s a little pricey for what it is though and there’s better options on Main Street. Expect to spend $12+ on lunch.
Good food good soup
Really good food. Nice salad bar.
This was such a great place to stop in and grab lunch with my family. I had never been there before but the food was really good in the atmosphere was amazing.
Great food always.
Best salad bar in town! Great food, a favorite go to! Sandwiches are delicious. Always pleased with our visit!!
Excellent food. Nice customer service.. the Charleston chicken is excellent and potato salad is quite tasty. Chocolate cake is good not too sweet.
Good food,but very expensive,very expensive...did I mention very expensive!!!
Has the Reuben, it was amazing. Fast service, no waitresses. Would eat there again. Kid friendly. College vibe for sure.
My favorite deli, great salad bar.
Love their sandwiches. Just you could swap a salad for chips without having to pay for the salad and still getting the chips, which I throw away.
I've eaten at the Charleston location as well as Columbia and have never had a bad experience with food or service. I've tried all the signature sandwiches and each has a unique taste to it. I've fallen in love with The Citadel and regularly get that along with chips, a pickle, and a drink. The sweet tea and lemonade is always fresh and on point, never too sweet or too bitter. Highly recommended any location and any sandwich.
