Diner Reviews
  • "The food was alright. The Philly Cheese steak Eggrolls were delicious. The chicken was bland. The macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes were not quite flavorful. The chicken reminded me of Cluck U Chicken. The music and ambience was great. I thought it was a fancy dine in restaurant but people came wearing jeans and super short shorts. Many people were just wearing tank tops and spanks. The red velvet cake was good but very dry. I don't think I"ll come back here. It's too expensive for the quality of food and bathrooms were dirty."

  • "If you are in the mood for something different try Delta's. The food is delicious and when we asked if the band could lower the music so we could hear each other talk, they accommodated our request. We get tired of steak joints and Italian restaurants so we keep our eye out for unique experiences. Delta's fit the bill and we will definitely return."

  • "First time at Delta's and I would definitely return there again. The food was very tasty and the drinks were suffice. The waiter was very polite, informative and attentive. Traveled from New York City to New Brunswick, NJ for this experience and it was well worth it. The Friday night R&B music was right on point and made the experience even more enjoyable. The entire staff was both courteous and professional. I would recommend Delta's to anyone who enjoys good Southern cuisine and upbeat atmosphere."

  • "This visit was for a birthday dinner with family. A delish vegetarian entree used to be offered as part of the main menu a few years ago. Since taking it off, I mostly went for happy hour. For this visit, I called ahead and asked if they would accomodidate me with a vegetarian option and they were more than happy to do so. As requested, the chef prepared an eggplant dinner that was made with love! The entire staff knew of my request upon arrival and the service was top notch! The atmosphere made for an even better experience as the live band was playing followed by karaoke. Fun times!"

Had a great time. A little pricey but worth it. About $150 for 3 women to dine with drinks and appetizers and no dessert."

  • "This was one of the best dinners that I've had out in a long time. I felt right at home, excellent menu easy to find something that I wanted to order. The appetizers were excellent, dinner was even better and the service was right on point. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by a very friendly host who did a great job getting a seated and set up with our waitress. As we were leaving live entertainment had started I wish I had more time to listen to her sing. From the little I heard she was awesome! I'll be back."

  • "At my daughter's request, we came here for dinner to celebrate her 25th birthday on June 17th.Our family tradition has always been to celebrate birthdays with an intimate dinner at a local restaurant .My daughter wanted "soul food". The fried catfish and whiting were cooked to perfection. The mac n cheeses was hot but bland tasting and I had to send the collard greens back because they were too spicy. ( I HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ANYTHING REMOTELY SPICY) . The string beans were a good replacement. My daughter said the collard greens were fine, but she left half on her plate!. Overall, the food was good, the atmosphere was open and inviting and the service was excellent!"

  • "Even though another reviewer warned that Tuesday's were really loud with live music, I didn't think it would so incredibly loud, I almost left because I couldn't even hear the waitress. The food was decent southern soul food and the music, though loud, was actually very good. The singer had a beautiful voice and the jazzy music was upbeat and polished. If I were going there for the music and the bar it would have been great, just not for the food."

  • "Sunday brunch menu is limited and does not offer salad, vegetable or fruit accompaniments to those wishing to count carbs. Service was friendly, but on the day of Rutgers commencement, a little lackadaisical. We waited 45 mnutes to get our food and had to ask twice for the check."

  • "Took my mom as well as a few family friends to Delta's after hearing great reviews of it. We were so happy with the food and service from start to end, from the corn bread all the way to our dessert of peach cobbler everything was great. Thank you Delta's for making mother's day such a success for my mom and I."

  • "Very busy, but the staff handled it marvelously. A little loud with so many families, but could still hear and enjoy the live music upstairs. I was happy, but more importantly, Mom was too (it was her choice). Prix fixe menu had wide variety, and Mom's special request was granted no muss, no fuss. Highly recommended, and I will definitely return, on a less busy day. "

  • "Food, drinks, and service was good. Friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed the music. Had to leave before band started because they did not start at 7:30 as indicated. We like R&B so we will return on another Tuesday night to try again. Nice specials like $5 martinis also on Tuesdays. "

  • "I was looking for a place near the State Theater and stumbled upon Delta's. Having never been to the area we looked at the menu and were intrigued. Our server Lyndell was fantastic. He was very friendly, attentive and made great suggestions. The Fried Chicken and Ribs and the Peach Cobbler were amazing. Tuesdays are also $5 Martini nights and the selection is great. Try the Rock Star or the Chocolate Covered Banana. Fantastic. Sadly, we had to leave before the band started. We are definitely going back. "

  • "I want to dance is for brunch, my reservations was at 12 o'clock noon. When we arrived the door was locked we bang on the door for 15 minutes until someone to open up the door. That should have been a hint for me right there. We went upstairs to sit down you order a brunch I ordered something simple scrambled eggs hash browns bacon. When my food arrived it was cold and not what I ordered. When I complain to the manager she said was just trying to get the kinks out and offered no options. I will not visit Delta again!"

  • "We were looking for a restaurant within walking distance of the State Theatre and what a great find! Delta'sa great location, busy bar and excellent food. The meal started out with exceelnt bar drinks, one of the best Margaritas, I've had all year. The Fried Gator was lightly breaded, crisp and very tasty. The Beef Short Ribs in Bourbon sauce, just fell off the bone, the Stewed Okra was delicious, not soggy. My wife had the Fried Chicken and the breading was again light and perfect. Great service, timely and attentive. We will be back before our next show."

  • "Good accessible location with a good vibe. I enjoy the Oxtails as well as the Catfish with jambalaya grits. There's always live music so be mindful if you want to converse with your party sit upstairs. Make for reservations in advance, but be prepared to wait a bit on the weekends."

  • "The food and atmosphere were excellent. My only negative is that I did not know that they have LIVE LOUD music on Tuesday nights. Normally I would have enjoyed it all, (and the music was excellent). It was however a business dinner with colleagues so probably not the most appropriate choice. I would recommend this restaurant with the caveat regarding the noise level. great food."

  • "Great restaurant, upscale ambience, would feel out of place if you wear a sweat suit. Noise level during early Sunday afternoon was low, old school r & b playing in the background (can u say shazam).Great for special occasions. My only issue is there is no brunch or breakfast menu, but they ensured me that will change in April, so i have a reason to return. Love the menu,i tried the chicken and sweet potatoe waffles, also has a good cocktail selection."

  • "This was our second visit to Delta's. This time we went on a Saturday night when there was a live jazz group playing by the bar. The music was excellent although a bit loud at times especially if your seated at a table on the ground floor and not up in the balcony (as we were). Food is constantly good throughout the meal from appetizers through dessert. I would say it's slightly overpriced in comparison to the quality but still quite good and it's delivered in a great atmosphere including entertainment. Will definitely be coming back in the future."

  • "First time there, many said they loved that place. Good place for drinks and good music. Great atmosphere. Service - server approached too often, I felt rushed. Had the fried flounder with Jambalaya grits, yams, spinach. Fish was fried too hard, scrapped the plate to taste the grits (very flavorful) No hint of shrimp, sausage in grits. Yams tasted like they were out of the can. Corn muffins were cold, hard. Peach cobbler was equally disappointing. Tried the gator appetizer - jury is still out. Eat them fast before they get cold. On the other hand my dinner partner throughly enjoyed the pecan crusted salmon, mac & cheese, asparagus. Drinks-something with heat - they light the alcohol with a lighter. Pricey in martini glass. Disappointing."

All around, a good evening. I will return! The only downer was the loud music that I couldn't get away from even with a seat on the top floor in the corner in the back. Still, a good place. A good experience. I shall return!"

  • "The restaurant is amazingly beautiful and the food was great. But the singer and her band there that night were too loud. The music was great but dinner is supposed to be a time for conversation. I had a sore throat by time we left from trying to shout over the music."
