The decor, setting and ambience is point on. They make you feel as if you were in a small town Louisiana Diner. The crowd is lively and they have a slurry of cocktails, Drinks and beers on tap to meet any appetite. The menu is southern and serves all the traditional cooking that you would imagine in the South. That... More

Came here for lunch with a group of 2 and we were immediately seated. No issues in getting a seat. For appetizer we ordered the popcorn alligator. I thought it would be interesting to try alligator meat but we were quite disappointed. The meat didn't taste "gamey" at all. It kind of tasted like popcorn chicken. They also served it... More

Was here for dinner, and SO glad we spontaneously stopped here rather than treeing on for a different restaurant. The restaurant boasts cajun/creole style food which was a big draw for me. I love the layout of the restaurant - it has its own cool and comfy vibe. The service was fantastic, everyone who came to our table was super... More

There were a bunch of drink and food options. The prices were fairly reasonable, the service great, and the food fresh. I plan to go back next weekend! Be aware, it can get quite packed due to its popularity.

I was pleasantly surprised by SugarFreak. I really liked the decor as it is not very typical for NY. The first thing that is a must here is the Bloody Mary - it is slightly spicy and seasoned to perfection! The second thing you should not miss is the Alligator bites - they do taste like chicken but much more... More

I felt like I was I'm my mom kitchen. No sure what was so southern about the decor cause my mom is not from the south just old fashion no kitchen update in years. The selection of food was plentiful with a good selection for vegetarians. Being a vegetarian and not from the south I had a lot of questions... More

I've been going here since they've opened. I was fairly devastated when they closed for renovations - I missed them! - but I've fully recovered after enjoying their expanded menu. Two words: Beignet Sliders! OMG - ridiculously delicious. I recommend the pork ones. Their catfish is great. My favorite is the shrimp and grits - which as of right now... More

Came here with the wife and kid and enjoyed but weren't blown away. We had the boudin balls and po boys. Boudin balls were decent but nothing special. I enjoyed my catfish poboy but the wife didnt really like her oyster po boy. Delta Bar and Grill probably still my favorite Cajun restaurant in NYC.

Very cool place. The eclectic decor is interesting. The food here is awesome. The crawfish Mac n Cheese is a must, along with the fried chicken. Can't wait to go back.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I go often for brunch and they never fail. Our go-to order is the jambalaya (served with fried eggs on top for brunch) and the chicken and waffles with banana foster sauce. Jambalaya always amazing and spicy. The waffles are light and pillowy, the fried chicken perfectly crisp, well seasoned and always moist.... More
