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!

I've never been disappointed with food here. I usually get the crawfish etoufee or shrimp creole. Desserts are good too.

Some people go to Darwell's for the food, some go for the ambience, and others go for both. Featured on the Food Network, it has become a local celebrity of sorts. Great southern foods and no fryers. Yes, you read that right - Southern food...More
