Service was great but the food left much to be desired, and the expensive drinks were downright nasty. Delta's has been a long time fav of mine. I haven't been to Delta's in years and I was very disappointed with the quality of their food and drinks. Also, I utilized the valet and when retrieving my car, the attendant literally drove my Cadillac like he was in a Nascar race. I don't think I will ever return to Delta's after this experience.

Service was exceptional and friendly. Food and drinks were fantastic, especially the oxtails with cabbage and hush puppies. Harlem chocolate cake was yummy. We'll definitely be back.

I always enjoy dining at Delta’s, but two things made this visit better than most. 1: the live music was great and 2 our table server was fantastic! I believe her name was Nikea and she was awesome!! So I wanted to give her and the band that played Tuesday evening a shout out and extend a big KUDOS!

It has certainly been awhile since I was at Delta’s; and the return didn’t disappoint! Wonderful customer service and delicious food. The hostess and our server were so pleasant and easily engaged. Offered meal suggestions and nice conversation. Quick walk to our venue. Limited parking; but you can valet for about $15 for 3 hours.

The customer service and experience I received at Delta’s in how they handle business is extremely disappointing. Especially for a restaurant whose food quality is mediocre and over priced. 1st Friday’s they require you to pay a cover charge if you don’t have reservations even when you just want to dine in. The venue is too small to make people pay to get in as if it’s a club or even room dance. I made reservations and called 40 minutes prior to make them aware of my late arrival due to traffic. The young lady I spoke to replied with just saying don’t worry about it, we’ll see you when you get here. When I arrived, the bouncer/$10 receipent, immediaty informed me of my reservation being cancelled as a no show and that I needed to pay a cover charge without even knowing my name. In addition, he stated there’s a 15 minute grace period allowed before they cancel the reservation. I asked to speak with someone since the young lady I originally spoke to prior to coming to the restaurant, did not inform me of such thing. After waiting to speak with someone about the situation for 15 minutes, the alleged manager on the shift immediately stated I need to pay the guy $10 for cover charge and if I dine in I would have to show my receipt/proof in order to receive the $10 back. The alleged manager did not even listen to the reason why I even wanted to speak with someone in the first place. The point is the lack of communication with their staff in making awareness of their no show policy at the time I called to confirm my reservations, was a mishap on their part. Since to recover is devine, is not a part of their policy or culture, the manager failed in attempting to resolve the problem. I will not be attending this restaurant ever again and would not recommend it.

I frequent Delta’s often and we got together to celebrate 2 birthdays. Our reservation party size decreased from 6 to 4 and as a result they decided to move our request from the downstairs booth to upstairs. We weren’t happy with this choice and went back and forth with the staff about it. It just didn’t make sense what they were asking of us, especially when there was a party of 2 sitting in the same size booth they didn’t want to honor for our party of 4. Eventually our request was honored and about an hour after our reservation we were seated but then our server was not the best. Nonetheless, we enjoyed ourselves since the ambiance and entertainment outweighed the rest.

We went to brunch for my husbands birthday. The seating and live dj was great but the wait for the food was ridiculous. Also they ran out of Mimosas. But we’ve been there multiple times and I love Deltas so they got a past this weekend.

The food was good. The potatoes were super spicy. I have dined here before and the food was excellent. I believe the got backed up as far as the kitchen. The hostess came and personally apologized for the wait and even discounted the meal. Excellent customer's service.

I had to wait 15 minutes to be seated even though I made a reservation thru OpenTable. The food came out 1.5 hr after ordering. The server didn't check on our table, or even give an estimate of how long it'll take to be served. After patiently waiting for almost 2 hours, the food came out which was mediocre.

Although we had reservations we still waited 15 minutes to be seated. The area where we sat was hot. When I started to sweat, I took my jacket off. I was still hot after that.

My meal was OK, but my wife’s blackens water melon salad was not blackened and the entree was was the pasta dish from the Restaurant Week menu. The Watermelon salad was nice t good and the pasta dish was mush and did not taste good. The waitress substituted the Red Snapper for the pasta.

The service was good, the waitress was pleasant.

My parents came to visit from NC and I thought this would be a nice touch of southern hospitality. I love Delta’s layout and the food is pretty good. We enjoyed the band although it was a bit loud making it hard to hear each other. We had pork chops, chicken, ribs and turkey wings between the four of us. The chicken was just okay and the asparagus I ordered was not cut to remove the tougher end of the stalk. Other than that the food was really good. Overall my parents enjoyed the meal and had a good time.

This is my second time at Delta's. First time was great. This time was a disappointment. I was on a date. She ordered pan fried fish on the price fixed menu. it was dry as cotton. I ordered a fried fish in a spicy sausage gravy. It was tasteless with three tiny pieces of sausage. The calamari was tender but tasteless and it was supposed to be spicy. The service was fair but it was not her fault. She was waiting on a party of 25 aside from us.

Delta's was a great dining experience, the food was really good. I was disappointed at the fact that they advertised a band being there and the band was not there on this particular night. There was no warning that the band would not be there.

Everything we had was delicious. We had Philly steak egg rolls for an appy.I had fried chicken with onion gravy and cabbage and mac and cheese.my husband had the pork chops.Warm corn muffins were also served. We went on Tuesday so it was $5.00 martinis. I had the sour apple.it was good but was very light on vodka .
Also there was a sign on the table about the $5.00 martinis and half price appys. However when we got.the bill and questioned why we were billed.full price for the appetizer, we were told that only applied to the down stairs bar area. This was never stated on the advertisment on the table.over all we liked .the place and will go back again.

Great overall ambiance. Christopher, our waiter was terrific. I went for brunch with a friend and we had fun, chatting, eating & drinking our 79 cent mimosas. Great value with a nice atmosphere. I didn't love my fried chicken & waffles and wish I had ordered the shrimp & grits but I will order that next time. The peach cobber was rich and delicious. My coffee was excellent (for us coffee lovers this is a must!). I recommend & will be back myself!

Was not that happy this dining experience. I ordered a waffle and turkey sausage, my food came out lukewarm and my sausages was cold inside. The edges around my waffle was kinda hard like it was sitting under a heat lamp. My hubby ordered chicken and waffles and he said his chicken was not seasoned well and his waffle was the same as mine, stale warm.
I’m not sure what’s going on in the kitchen, but for the prices they charge for breakfast/brunch the food needs to come out hot and seasoned! This is the second time we had a issue with our food.

The best thing I had on the menu to die for was the philly cheese steak egg rolls. I was a bit disappointed since I have been there before. I ordered the oxtails- too much fat on them. Mac and cheese was good, potato salad I did not like at all. I also ordered the Hennessey Sangria

It is not what it used to be. Brunch was below average, all of the dishes lacked seasoning. The server seemed to rush the process, from introduction until closing out, this led to her being rude.
