We had visited here once before and had to leave after waiting almost an hour for our meal to arrive. However, this experience was the complete opposite. We were seated promptly for lunch, had an excellent server and bus boy who were extremely attentive to our needs. Our lunches were good and reasonably priced. From our past experience I would...

Six of us had dinner here. Their wine & beer menu was very limited: no dark beers in the bottle(only 1 on tap) & no sweet wines. The cheese/spinach enchiladas were extremely spicey. This is more of a bar that is known for Poker than it's food. Very disappointing.

Our group of eight ladies arrived at Delectables mid-afternoon (after any lunch rush) to a nearly empty restaurant. After ordering our drinks, we indicated that we'd be requesting separate checks, which the server refused to do because "the internet is down and I can only handle credit cards with chips which will take forever so I'm not doing it". After... More

The staff is friendly and very helpful. We had two vegans in our group and the waiter was helpful and friendly when suggesting options for them. I had the bosses burger. The bacon was crispy and the burger was tasty. Hint: not one of the vegan dishes ;-) Good Arnold Palmers with the fresh lemonade.

The Waiter acted like he was doing us a favor by waiting on us. A very unpleasant Birthday lunch for my friend. Never mind the food I won't... More

Nice place, live music, moderate prices... However, the food was average at most. I had a Caesar with grilled salmon. The salad didn't taste like Caesar and the salmon was overdone.

this is a great little place with both inside and patio dining in the cool area of 4th and just around the corner sort of from the Rogue Theater which if you have attended will get you a 15 percent discount. We had the veggie sandwich and the hamburger, or as they say patty melt. Also had the hot bean... More

My friend had a showing of her watercolors at this lovely cafe and we stopped by to support her and have a meal. Very tasty food and cool calm atmosphere.
