Cute, rustic place with a limited but adequate food selection. The shrimp/corn chowder soup was delicious. The let down was the Jambalaya that drew me in. It was all rice with 3 tiny sliver slices of smoked sausage as thin as tissue paper and 2 breaded & fried chicken strips placed on top of the rice. In 3 spoonfuls I... More

This place reminded me of New Orleans... Spicy and sweet. All delicious... I had their brioche french toast. Incredible. Soft and gooey on the inside. but toasty on the outside. With hints of cinnamon and brown sugar. Pretty amazing. The dishes are huge. So come hungry. :) I definitely want to come back and try their fried chicken and waffle.... More

Eaten here three times in the last fortnight and have loved it every time. Never had New Orleans style food before and was pleasantly surprised. Love cornbread and cornbread stuffing now. Delta is laid back casual dining but the food is seriously delicious and very reasonably priced.

The entire Delta Grill was set up with a down-home New Orleans feel. From the weather-beaten red wood exterior to the Mardi Gras beads around the fireplace, this place screamed "good time for y'all" to everyone inside. We actually visited around lunch hour, before we went to our theater musical, so we had to keep an eye on the clock.... More

Easy to find; first tasted the food on a walking tour of Hell's Kitchen and then went back for dinner the next night. Amazing flavors and they served strawberry Abita!

Great food, great service! A little off the beaten path but if you like authentic cajun cuisine then you will love the food in this restaurant!

The Delta Grill has a very rustic and local feel about it, trying to connect the feeling of the restaurant with the food they are serving. It was very vibey when we visited, and quite full. The menu was interesting and had something for everyone. Everyone said they liked their dishes, and it was what I would call a hearty... More

Have been here a few times when I get a yang for New Orleans food. Not authentic, but OK. This past week, stopped for brunch. Had stomach surgery a year ago and have to be careful about what I eat (consistency). Ordered an omlette and asked Heather (my server) what it came with. She told me it came with potatoes... More

Went here for brunch prior to a show because we love New Orleans cooking and wanted to give this place a try. The service was ok. Our waiter was nice but the service was a little slow. We ordered the crabcake eggs benedict and cinnamon raisin french toast. Both were very good. The crabcake comes with potatoes which were ok.... More
