Great place to eat! Usually there’s a band or DJ which adds to the experience. Parking is terrible though, if you’re lucky you’ll get a spot on the same street.

Great soul food with unique selections on menu. Best fried chicken in south New Jersey. Atmosphere cozy and comfortable with a modern flare. Service staff is upscale and welcoming.

I reserved for the day before my husband’s birthday. We had already done Houston’s on Friday with just the two of us but wanted to do something as a family so this was it. Our table was upstairs in the rear. My husband and daughter’s view was stuff piled in a corner and it felt like we were seated in a storage closet. The corned bread was cold so the butter couldn’t melt and it was dry. We ordered 3 appetizers which were actually better than our meals which were mediocre at best. (Blackened catfish, ribs, smothered chicken, fried fish) The only dish that’s still delicious is the Mac n cheese. I’ve dined at Deltas many times before and also have come for happy hour and girl’s night out. My last few visits weren’t good. It definitely isn’t worth the 50 minute drive from home. Very disappointed as I used to rave about this place. They’ve definitely fallen off.

The music is to loud for date night or evening.The automatic gratuity is to much the customer should be the judge of what they want to give their server not the restaurant.The sangrias have to much juice in them you don’t taste no liquor.

This restaurant is amazing! The food is so tasty, the vibes is on point but I was very upset that they took the fried okra off the menu. The fried okra really kicked off that back home dirty south southern feel to go with my catfish ugh I was so disappointed. So if by any chance maybe you can add it as an appetizer or something just to satisfied the true southern eaters, because the fried okra is to die for. Thank you Kindly!!!

The food, service and the ambience was fantastic. My only hiccup was, we were told that we must be there by our reservation time or the reservations will be cancelled. We were there way before our reservation time, and still had to wait an hour. That was very disappointing to wait for a table when we were on time and had reservations.

This restaurant is very beautiful and the food was very good. However, our service was poor for so many reasons. Needless to say a $210 bill and it was not worth it. Came to celebrate a friend's birthday and her favorite part of dinner is dessert. Well as we were still eating, I called over the server to order another rounds of drinks and she bluntly said we had a 90 minute table time and we can not order any more drinks or anything else and here's our to go boxes and she'll be bringing us the check. Stunned is an understatement. I literally had no words, she rushed us out of there so fast and it was disgusting. As a Healthcare worker I fully understand that times have changed due to COVID, however customer service should not be one of those changes. I will never visit this establishment again!

I have been to Delta’s a handful amount of times and over the years the service has declined the host or I should say the woman who answered to phone was rude and the furthest from accommodating or understanding. Not to mention she had no professional phone manners I called she answered Hello instead of a professional greeting like “Thankyou for calling Delta’s My Name is (insert name) how may I assist you this evening?” Nope she just said Hello I had to ask if I called the correct place. Then where was the valet??? If you don’t provide the service don’t advertise that you do when you know New Brunswick is impossible to find parking I spent 20 min trying to find parking. I was less than thrilled about that thennnn only to finally sit down to eat and my server was very nice but unfamiliar with server etiquette “ you must know your menu , also please be able to describe the wines provided I can read the type but if I ask you for the notes you need to know what I am talking about instead of repeating the type and color which I know from the menu, also do not become too familiar with you guest that you are touching them on the shoulder or anywhere else . The food was ok but sadly Deltas has fallen off and then has the nerve to demand 20%Gratuity to be included on all checks. I’m a big tipper in general because of the industry but I believe in receiving more than decent service. If things don’t change Delta’s will end up a pick up store front instead of the classy southern fine dining it once was!!!

The bartender turned manager is rude and unapproachable. She should play the background as she doesn’t represent the Delta brand or restaurant well. She walks around like she is Queen of Sheba and treats the staff like they are beneath her. Patrons shouldn’t be able to distinguish subordinates from management. The staff is always friendly, accommodating and go above and beyond.
