Great little venue with unique character. The creative blend of the old architectural elements and modern decor is worth a look.

A great place for a concern, wonderful food, great atmosphere, and close parking. I've been back many times and am always happy to return. The service is excellent and the venue an intimate way to listen to a performer.

Stopped by for Lunch to see the Famous Guitarist Eric Sommer. Great Service, Good Food. No Drink Specials, however the drinks were very good, and priced typically for the area. They have a Large Concert Venue downstairs. Busy, Business Crowd during lunch. I will be back to see a Night Show, and update my review. Parking is on the street.

I eat lunch here all the time & the food is always good on a regular basis. They have a few tables outside. But what's great is the concert hall area, super intimidate, great view no matter where you stand, it makes your music experience so much more special!

World Cafe Live at the Queen is a great venue! We have been to see some great concerts (including Dave Mason and Sonny Landreth), to a beer dinner, and, most recently, to Delaware Humane Association's Muttini Mixer event. The venue is great, and we like being able to eat, drink, and listen to great music (and dance if we want... More

I heard about the Queen but never went until Janis Ian came to town. We have gone to the original World Café in Philadelphia and wasn't sure what to expect. What a great place to see a concert and have dinner. The concert was amazing. I closed my eyes and thought I was hearing Janis Ian in 1974. She sounds... More

Having recently moved here it is a joy to be so close to live music. We have been impressed each time we went I love jazz but have enjoyed a wide array of music there, each band very good in their style of music from what we saw. We have eaten dinner there and also just ordered "bar food". Other... More

I have been a fan of World Cafe Live! in Philadelphia for the past 9 years. Tonight I finally got around to attending a show at World Cafe Live! at the Queen in Wilmington, Delaware. The location is easy to access and street parking is plentiful. I opted to park in the garage across the street which was identified as... More

If you stay overnight in center city then a great place to visit would be the historic World Cafe Live at the Queen. Wilmington doesn't have many (any?) places this tight. Always great music, food, and people. Amateur nights, I can't recall which day during the week, brings in some interesting and quality entertainment. The food is exceptionally prepared in... More
