It has been awhile since we ate at Clayton Delaney's and we were not at all disappointed. I had the chop steak cooked very rare with mashed potatoes....It was excellent. My wife had country fried steak which she said was also very good. This place is still a keeper. We will return

Stick to the burgers. They never fail. Everything else was sub-par. The older waitress was so unfriendly. Never refilled our drinks or water. Made us feel uncomfortable using our coupon.

Off the beaten path, a restaurant with character and great service. Very casual with a small bar and limited parking, this restaurant serves good (also casual) food such as Ribs and steaks, chicken and beer. Prime Rib was nothing special but all other dishes were good and our large group arrived early so the no-reservation policy didn't hinder us. Service... More

Was in the other night, had the special burger and it was nothing outstanding. I thought it would of been made fresh, but it was a frozen patty and not so great. It would of been good to have a little more of the pulled pork on top of it, was just a bit for a taste. The fries were... More

This restaurant was in Chester when I moved to the area 27 years ago and we've eaten there many times. Rustic, quaint and family friendly with great burgers and fries and prime rib. Great for lunch too; if you're on the Heritage Trail, you can walk over to Clayton Delaney's for lunch!

It is cozy and casual at Clayton Delaney's. The food is good. My husband and my boys love the barbequed ribs and I prefer the burgers and salads. I had the chicken once and I thought it was a bit dry. We have been here a few times and always seem to have the same, quiet waiter. He is great.... More

I am a creature of habit and so when I got the Delaneys I always get the hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. It is always delicious. I also indulge in the homemade onion rings...... to die for!! Excellent!!

I always try and support local businesses. Hadn't been to this restaurant in 2 years because it seemed to go down hill. Gave it another try. We were greeted at the door w/the smell of grease. Tables and chairs felt greasy. For a Friday night, it was slow. The prices on the menu were shocking, based on the type of... More
