Decent Restaurant by the Water at The Rio

After some quality time in front of the lens for family pictures, my family and I decided to go to Café Deluxe for a very, very late lunch recently. The restaurant was quite quiet and rather deserted, and we had a nice view of the water from our table. Dishes were pretty good--nothing to write... read more

My husband and I went to visit my niece as she recently moved to the area. We were shopping in the area and saw this place with an outside area overlooking the water and decided to try it. We all ordered cheeseburgers and fries for lunch and they were delivered in a timely fashion. Everyone took a bite into their... More

I have been to this place quite a few times, but the last time was in November of last year, wanted to go in around 10 or 10:30 as I was in the area with someone, and they were closing the kitchen. I didn't feel welcomed even though i know they probably had30 minutes before they could close the doors,... More

We stopped by after an evening movie. We were promptly seated. Ordered the seafood pasta which was very good. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Will return.

We stopped in after a movie and sat at the bar. Very friendly bartender. Really made you feel welcome and happy to see you. We had margaritas and the bartender took the time to explain some of the drink creations on the drink menu. Ordered a cheeseburger and they were nice enough to split plate it without our asking. Definitely... More

I've been to Cafe Deluxe 5-6 times and have to say that last night's experience was a two point shift down. As usual I ordered mussels Belgian style and they came out cold and hard. In the past they have always come out of the kitchen hot and succulent. The quantity seemed to have been reduced but perhaps it was... More

Just ate there for convenience, which is why they get away with average. Would not have selected if I had known better.

Went for brunch with family and had a nice experience. This restaurant is in the location of the old Hamburger Hamlet. Nice simple décor and good selection on menu. With brunch they offer a brunch menu as well as the regular menu selections.

This is a restaurant inside a large group of movie theatres. Decided to eat here because late getting out of movie. Expected run-of-the-mill cafe but was surprised. Nicely appointed, but simple surroundings. We had a glass of wine and crab dip to begin. Niece had mussels, and server brought her toasted triangles for the broth. Very good Cobb salad, and... More
