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

I kept hearing about Darwell's and we finally got there for lunch. Not only was the food delicious but the atmosphere was an experience all its own! No doubt the highlight was my amazing sandwich....one of the best I have ever had!! It is The Crab....moist, large, lump crabmeat with melted Swiss and cooked sliced ham on grilled Texas toast....

Darwell's is a must stop every time we visit the coast. The etouffee is out of this world. Last visit we tried the Taste Of Darwell's, which was a platter of gumbo, shrimp creole and etouffee, all the best we've tasted. We also tried the brownie trio, and the snickers brownie was dessert heaven. In addition to a delicious menu,... More

We ran to Darwell's today, it was their 10th Anniversary. I had the Blackened Combo which was shrimp, crab and filet cooked to perfection, with green beans and salad. My friend had a bowl of gumbo. The food was grand. Shrimp were tender, as was the filet. The crab melted in your mouth. Each spoonful of gumbo had seafood in... More

I wish we would have gotten there when it wasn't raining or so late. There is so much to see and do here in addition to eating. What atmosphere! What fun! We just love it and can't wait to go back. The service is extraordinary and the food is just amazing! If you go ANYWHERE in the Gulf Coast area,... More
