    This was our second time at Delta’s. The first time we went on a Saturday night. It was very loud and crowded. We were not served an of the complimentary cornbread. We were there with 3 children and the DJ played what seemed like the most provocative in uncensored music he could find. Parking was impossible so we were forced to pay $20 for valet. This time we went on a Sunday evening and the experience was totally different. One complaint is that there was a group of loud cursing adults seated right next to us when I specifically asked to be put somewhere where we wouldn’t have other dinners that close to us for that very reason. Meanwhile there was so much space where they could have been seated. I think the restaurant needs to work on seating. Place parties with families in a family friendly area and parties of adults somewhere else.

    Unfortunately, My experience at Delta's was not great. The Good: Ambiance, Setting, Atmosphere The Bad: Food was overcooked, very dry, no taste, no real seasoning. I was there with 3 other people and we all ordered different things and let lots of food on our plates.... The OK: The drinks were pretty "OK", nothing to write home about. I would not return, wasn't worth the money we spent. & our server looked "high" the entire time.

    My husband and I went there with friends Saturday evening. We only waited 5 minutes to be seated. Our hostess seating us was very friendly, the telephone desk person not so much. Once we got to our seats, we were greeted by a friendly waitress and server staff. The waitress was very attentive. She gave us recommendations on drinks, allowed us to taste different gravies for the oxtails, kept refilling our water, and suggested the restaurant week menu option. We had the oxtails, lobster mac and cheese, red snapper, and fried chicken dishes. The taste of the food was "ok". I wouldn't call it delicious but it was ok. The main courses lacked overall flavor especially for what you would expect for southern inspired cooking. They automatically add gratuity to your bill which I'm not a fan of and it was just 4 of us. The bill was confusing as it looked like the charge was on there twice so we had to have the server explain the charges. She got a bit exasperated over that. To sum it all up, the food was "ok", the ambience was good, and the service was pretty decent. Valet parking is $20 and the attendant was very polite. Expect tight and narrow roads if you've never been here before. There's almost no street parking so we felt like we had to use valet parking.

    Service was pleasant, but very slow. Food did not match expectations for a celebratory birthday dinner. Wonder if staff was new or if the head chef was off for the night.

    The food tasted good but was on the small side for the value of the restaurant week amount. Portion size on the small end. Took awhile for my friends and I to get our mixed drinks. They forgot to bring my friend a fork to eat her food with (she was given no utensils) so I had to get up and request utensils and napkins. Server gave us check without even asking how we wanted to pay the bill. Service could’ve been a bit better. For the price of the restaurant week deal I think that the 20% automatic gratuity should be reconsidered.

    We like the food here but the parking is so difficult. We came yesterday because of the restaurant week promotion. We both started with the fried green tomatoes and goat cheese…delicious and a large portion. Entrees were chicken friend steak and the res snapper. Again. Both were large portions and came with a starch and vegetable. We shared the sweet potato pie for dessert and took home the cheesecake. The meal started with a basket of warm corn muffins…so yummy! Excellent service by Jordan! There are several dining rooms upstairs… be warned that there is climbing!!!

    Staff was so incredible and nice, the food was not the Greatest amount I have had. Salmon was ok and the appetizer of Calamari looked liked it just thrown on the plate and not a lot at all, definitely not for 2. The atmosphere was wonderful and music on point but be prepared to spend some money for a just about a little food that was ok. Also didn't appreciate as I entered to be bothered by a person asking for donations. I felt like that would have been appropriate after I was leaving, not as soon as I entered.

    The service by Omar was very good. The pork chops were dry and the collard greens were not tender. We didn’t like the dumplings. The music was extremely loud for an early Sunday. We were upstairs and the music was still overwhelming. The calamari was good but portion was small.
