Love the shrimp creole and mashed potatoes! If you have the option to sit outside I would! Great unique live music you can't find anywhere else!

Definitely got some great tasting food. I had the hamburger steak over rice and New Orleans green beans and the mix was just new to me. Mixing of the juices and everything was awesome. Can't wait to go back again!!!

We went out of our way to eat here on our vacation based on fact that Guy had visited this place. Overall food was just ok. Small portions and over-priced. Everything was a la carte and had a no fried seafood option.

Been here several times. The food is excellent. Red beans and rice. The salad with slow roasted turkey. The atmosphere is unlike anywhere else on the coast. OK so now I have made myself Hungary and need to go back.

Darwell's is amazing! The food is incredible and fresh. The crawfish ettouffe is hands down the best I've ever had, and Darwell himself makes you feel like family. His wife's brownies are killer, too!!! You want real food from good people? Check this place out....More
