My husband and I visited Darwells on the recommendation of my high school chemistry teacher. This place did not disappoint! Darwell greeted us personally upon entering and let us sample his signature dish. I had the special of the day, shrimp creole and my husband had the crab cake sandwich. We both loved our selections. In fact we purchased some... More

As you drive up to this place you start to wonder what you might have just got yourself into. However, as soon as you enter you are greeted by an exceptionally friendly and customer service focused staff followed by some great food. I would go back!

My daughter suggested Darwell's for lunch and it was an excellent recommendation. As several reviewers have said, the most difficult part of Darwell's is deciding what to order. In addition to the printed menu and the items listed on the walls, the young man at the counter described several other items that were tempting. My son-in-law and I got the... More

We took the menu of the internet and thought that it was just a sandwich joint. It turns out they have a lot of other choices for your dinner. We tried Shrimp Creole and Crayfish Etouffee. . The young man taking orders was really into the food there and described it with great delight. The food was really tasty and... More

Some of the best food I've ever had. Darrell and his wife Nicky greeted us at the door and we were on our way to a great meal. I will definitely come back. Owners and rest of the staff are great.

I went to Darwell's for the first time today for lunch to go. I recently moved to the Mississippi Gulf Coast from St. Louis Mo so I was looking for some ribs. When I arrived at work I sat down and opened my container. I was not impressed... The rib special that I ordered appeared very lite in color with... More

This place is a dive with a great atmosphere. Some friends and I were in Long Beach and stopped in for lunch on a Saturday and we were pleasantly surprised. They had live music and the owner/chef was out and about and very helpful. The food was good and nothing is deep fried which was interesting. The menu is dynamic,... More
