They have 14 Google Reviews so I would guess they are open. You can also call and ask.

They were open for large private events. I called there was no answer.

I went to Deluxe a couple of times over the last week and Iím starting to believe the food is pretty good. At first I wasnít a fan after they switched over the menu but I think itís growing on me.

What happened to Entree? Place is empty on a Thursday night. Less than a year ago it was absolutely packed all week.

Lost their chef, menu got stale (no pun intended), and people got sick of sitting in a tent.


ETA: to be fair a Thursday night before a 3 day YT isn't a great night for restaurants - people are busy. Though I've heard similar sentiments over the past few months.

Also the Yogi Berra line comes to mind - Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.

Tent is closed and still not close to being crowded. Far cry from a short time ago. Iím wondering if itís because of new places or because of itself, or a combo of both. I feel like food quality went down a bit but drinks got better.

i had some appetizers. Good. Nothing outstanding. Interestingly, they arenít allowed to serve any coffee/smoothies etc bec Starbucks has a contract barring any competition in the mall.
