A family member recommended this restaurant & we were in Biloxi for a wedding, so we made a point of seeking out this restaurant & it certainly didn't disappoint! It is quirky & nothing fancy, but the shrimp etouffee is out of this world good! It is a cream base, which is quite unusual in the "Land of Cajun". Even... More

Great place to dine on gourmet food at gourmet prices on plastic ware. While the food is most tasteful the plastic ware is disappointing. I hope they're recycling even though pushing food around on a plastic plate makes it less appetizing. Entertainment by Bob Worth and BYOB made our dining experience worth the high prices.

Good old southern food that you order at the counter and they bring to your table when ready. Very eclectic and whimsical atmosphere. This place was a delight with music included. If Papa Darwell shows up he will draw his version of your portrait (character)on your stylophone cup. You really should not miss this place it is a hoot. I... More

As seen on Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives. Casual dining, indoor & outdoor seating. We visited on a weekday afternoon & there was a guitarist playing on the patio. They don't serve alcohol, but byob. This was the first tkme I had ever had crawfish etoufee & it was great. I ordered the small & it was more than enough.

We researched places to go in and around Biloxi and learned that Darwell's was featured on the popular show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. We couldn't resist stopping in and we were so glad we did! The place is definitely a hole in the wall, not much to look at from the outside....they have a really cute patio area with tables... More

I settled for a hamburger and it was good. the rest of the group had crab cake and shrimp creole and were very pleased with... More

Big chunks of andouille sausage and shrimp swimming in a thick flavorful tomato sauce. Loved the Basmati rice texture and was perfect for... More

I had the crabcake sandwich and wifey had the shrimp creole. We both enjoyed our meal. Darwell's never fails to please. This "ain't" a white tablecloth, fine dining place, but if you want good seafood, stop in and eat here!
