I was taken here by a Friend and to my great joy, it had atmosphere and from the front looked like a "junk yard". You go inside and are amazed at the menu which is from based upon the local area food taste. I will have to agree with another, this is one of the best restaurants I have been... More

Darwell's Cafe is a place where you can go and just be yourself. It's a small place with a big heart. They feature foods that you would ordinarily cook at home for a small price. On Sundays, it's bring your own beverage for a fun time outdoors with a live band. Come early for best seats and parking. It greats... More

I never fail to go to Darwells when I'm in Long Beach. In my opinion, it is the best restaurant. The Coast. The atmosphere is easy and the live music is always entertaining. The food is cooked fresh. I've never had a bad meal there.

We stopped in strictly on reviews, it was spot on. The place had a 70's feel to it, unbelievable service and the food was of the chain. I highly recommend this place, it is a true dive hidden waiting on you!

Dining out in my opinion should be a total experience; from the food, to the service, the atmosphere. Darwell's has it all! I went there for dinner. Atmosphere: From the time you pull up in the parking lot with crazy signs, and art decor hanging in the trees, this place is cool. They have an indoor eating area which is... More

We have eaten here many times. The food is excellent and they support the musicians of the area. And Papa D's artwork is cool!

How many ways can you say yum. So many good sounding things on the menu its a hard decision. If you are undecided just ask Darwell. He is probably the best salesman/chef you will ever meet. He recommended the Red Fish as the special of the day. Boy was he right. It was not only good it was excellent. He... More
