The concierge at the hotel steered me to this place and I'm very grateful. The smothered chicken is great, as is the corn bread. Others I've dined here with say the fish is excellent (I don't eat fish). Great sides too.

Ordered a Club Sandwich with no Mayo but with butter. Received balls of butter on a separate dish. Would have had to deconstruct the Club Sandwich to butter the sandwich. French fries were luke warm. Service left a lot to be desired and left my 2 cents with the waiter. Suggest you eat elsewhere.

The food is very good, some even excellent. The sweet potato waffles (served with fried chicken) are delicious. The peach ribs are great, collards sweet and not soggy, mac and cheese terrific. Catfish was a little watery. Jambalaya grits tasted really good but were too soupy. Philly steak egg roll (appetizer) was awful. Wednesday is 1/2 price bottle wine night!... More

I've eaten here in the past, some years ago, and despite not great memories about those instances, I decided to try Delta's again. Alas, things haven't improved. From the initial cold welcome, to the long wait for cappuccinos that never happened, With the upper floor devoid of dinners at the time we were shown to the least desirable table. Huh?... More

We came to Delta's for a friend's birthday celebration. The food is very good (but not outstanding) and the service is excellent. Delta's is well maintained and situated. There was a band playing jazz the night that we went, but, given our seating, it was difficult to appreciate the music. This did not take away from our dining experience as... More

Upscale place. The ambiance and service was excellent. They have 95 cent mimosas for brunch - and it was great. The shrimp was excellent. Otherwise food was decent - pretty good but I didn't think it was over the top. The quantity isn't much so ordering the sides would be a good idea. Overall, the place is good for a... More

Two couples for Valentine's Day had the pleasure of visiting this New Brunswick hot spot. We would return just for the gumbo and Soul Folks Dumplings. Tasty Fried Chicken and Whiting entrees and the sides were incredible: Mac & Cheese, Fried Okra, and Collard Greens. Everybody smiles, the hostess, your waitress, the busboy. Live entertainment Saturday night, plan on spending... More

If you like full plates and don't matter too much about fried food, this is the place to be. Reasonable price, wine at half price, not the most fancy interior but it can do. But...not my cup of tea
