Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Food was good, plentiful and tasty. Guests has smothered chicken, fried fish, chops and salads. We devoured the desserts. Cocktails were potent!! Bottle of wine affordable. 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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "My dinner outing was just "ok" on this visit to Deltas. I've been here before & had better food. This particular dinner I had great service from my waitress but I feel like the waiter who was helping her rushed me & my guest out."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I found the food to be excellent which provides various nights of entertainment during your meal. It's also a great spot for after work or an evening out for dinner prior to a movie or another selective place of leisure or entertainment. This was my first visit to your restaurant, and I will be back with others."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The place opens at 5 on the weekend and was packed by 5:45 on the Saturday night we attended so I would suggest reservations. The staff was extremely friendly. They have live music starting at 6:30 which adds a nice ambiance. The food was good - great comfort food - southern style cooking. I would like to visit again."

  • "This was a great choice to bring a friend of mine who had never heard of the place. She was really pleased with the atmosphere and the food. This was only my 2nd time here but, if it wasn't so far away from me, I'd be here every week. Me and some of my other friends will definitely come back so that I can show this this great & really cool place. The food is also excellent in this place."

  • "A great place in New Brunswick to indulge in refined southern cooking. Very romantic and great martinis."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Overall experience was great. We were seated immediately but that is because we had a reservation. The service was great and we loved the atmosphere. Only negative I have is we had an 830pm reservation for 5 people. Our fifth person did not arrive until 10pm and they charged him five dollars to get into the restaurant. He did not pay since we were about to leave. I just don't think there is a need to charge anyone to get into a restaurant. This is not a club."

  • "The check in desk was a circus, we waited over an hour for a table, the food was ok and the service was very spotty, we were extremely DISAPPOINTED. My fiancée mentioned we will never patronize Delta's again."

  • "my food was not the best... due to valentines had a long wait to eat..lobster was dry and steak was overcooked"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a table upstairs which was ok. Love southern food and ordered fried crawfish which was great. Entrees weren't bad but they weren't great either. Banana pudding was awesome! Cappuccino was not a cappuccino. Everything else such as service, ambience, and etc was good."

  • "Went here on a Sunday night and it wasn't that crowded. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Loved everything and totally recommend this place. Best soul food place in NJ by far."

  • "Myself and my husband recently visited Deltas for the first time. Wonderful experience, ambiance, service, and food. We will definitely be back and well worth the 35 mile commute from West New York, NJ."

  • "This is my 20th or visit to Deltas. I haven't been in some time. I did notice some differences in the food but they are minor. Overall, it's. Great spot in NB."

  • "nice ambience, servers were busy and were fair at best. we felt a bit rushed. food was average at best, no better and on the expensive side for what was served."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "This was our 3rd visit to Deltas. It was also amateur hour. No attention from front desk, cocktails arrived after appetizers, bartenders who don’t know drinks and can't mix them properly. Lukewarm gumbo, cold espresso. When we entered, there was a delivery guy dropping off a sandwich order to some of the employees! We should have left then. Food was actually quite good. Dessert selection limited but also good. What really upset us… a priced fixed menu because of New Year’s Eve. Not a special menu, no unique items, just excerpts from their menu and a promise of a glass of Champagne (which we never received) all for only $55 per person! And, they forced a 20% tip on top of food and liquor, despite the appalling service."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "This was a definitely a dining experience to remember! The collard green dip & catfish tenders made great appetizers & were enough for sharing. The menu fit all of our tastes from Fried Chicken w/a sweet potatoe waffle to oxtail down to the assortment of sides to choose from. Delta's is definitely on my list of favorite restaurants."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Dinner at Delta's capped off the end of a great day hanging out in NJ. Even though I was a party of 1, I enjoyed it. My sister recommended Delta's so I had an early dinner there after the Rutgers Women's basketball game (we won!). Food was delicious, my drink made to perfection (not every bartender can make a excellent Cosmo) and the service was gracious. Would recommend Delta's to anyone who's hanging out in New Brunswick or towns near by."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Overall, the experience was very good. But, a couple of things need improvement: (1) Valet parking was $9.00. Valet parking is suppose to be a courtesy of the restaurant. And if a charge is made, I should expect to be parked in a private lot; not right on the street! (2) We were told that we had to wait for all 5 members of my party to show up before we could be seated. If our table is reserved (which it was), I should be seated at my reserved table. Why should I have to starve because 1 member of my group is late? The present attendees should have the opportunity to decide to proceed with dinner without the missing member. But, if we're not seated, we don't have this opportunity. No one came back to us to inquire as to our wishes."

  • "This is the only restaurant that I know where the majority of the vegetables (including the mac & cheese...wth??) has turkey in it. Not a good look for vegetarians!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "I was very disappointed in the food. I received such rave reviews from friends however when I experienced the food it was not up to par. I ordered the smothered pork chops, my date ordered the chicken and ribs. Extremely under seasoned. Just so disappointed. I will return and try another dish only because my friends talked so much about Deltas. Hopefully the next time it will be better. I always give Resturants a second chance. Everyone is entitled to an "off" night."

  • "We went for Thanksgiving, and in the weirdos of Arlo Guthrie, had a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat. Started off with the fried alligator appetizer which was simply amazing, a firm and flavorful meat beautifully prepared. I had the traditional turkey dinner which was perfect: juicy tender turkey, perfect stuffing, home made cranberries, mashed potatoes, collards and mac and cheese., mmmmm. My honey had the braised short ribs which were also to die for. Desert was sweet potato cheese cake, which was light and creamy and delicious. A couple of very minor dings: it's not well laid out in spite of its size. Makes the place seem crowded; seated patrons frequently get jostled. And it is noisy. BUT I will definitely go back"

  • "One of my guests was a little late and because a party was being hosted they tried to charge a cover charge and I had to go to the door to explain. It was quite inconvenient"
    Dined on 11/27/2013
  • "For the first time, we actually had our Thanksgiving dinner at Delta's. We both ordered from the traditional holiday menu and were very, very pleased!"

  • "I visited this restaurant based on the reviews I read when I visited NJ. I was not disappointed, in fact my dinner exceeded my expectations. I started off with the calamari and it was delicious. I followed my appetizer with salmon cakes and grits and it too was quite tasty. I had the lava cake and ice cream for dessert and was quite pleased. During my dinner my waitress Nyasia was delightful. She provided me with wonderful food recommendations and checked on me frequently to make certain that I had all that I needed."

  • "Wonderful service and food. A delightful experience with friends and family. The Collard Green dip is absolutely amazing."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "The food here used to be so good. My friends and I decided that from now on we are sticking with appetizers. Our meal was bland and cold. They were unable to provide us with out reserved table when we arrived because they said a larger party (4) came in before us and wanted to sit in the bar area. So, we had to wait for a table despite having our reservation. Bad business. The music and drinks are good. Consider it a bar not a restaurant."

  • "I usually attend on Tuesdays but my first Friday night at Delta's, it won't be my last. The energy level was high and exciting. There seemed to be a mixed crowd from 20 somethings to the more mature. The food was excellent, the drinks were perfect and the service was superb. An extra bonus was that the resturaunt was still celebrating Halloween, it was decorated with witches and gouls, the staff was also in costumes."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "I've been to Delta's several times previously and enjoyed it tonight just as I always do. The food is delicious and our server tonight, Monique, was wonderful! They have a promotion called Tini Tuesdays were they offer select martinis for $5.00. A nice touch was that they donate the proceeds of every purchase of a Pink Diamond martini to breast cancer research during the month of October. The only disappointment was that they no longer offer the live R & B band on Tuesdays. Instead there was a DJ. We enjoyed the music, but I was really looking forward to the live band. Delta's is a Southern Food restaurant but draws a diverse crowd. All races and ages come here for the great food and cool atmosphere. I will definitely be back."
