Darwell's is a bit off of the path but worth the visit. variety of selections available from hamburger to creole to prime rib. I was disappointed that they were out of fish when i visited. I settled for a hamburger and it was good. the rest of the group had crab cake and shrimp creole and were very pleased with... More

Big chunks of andouille sausage and shrimp swimming in a thick flavorful tomato sauce. Loved the Basmati rice texture and was perfect for... More

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!

Ok. I like to make fun of Guy Fieri and his over the top personality. Despite his laughable quotes, he must bring a ton of business to a restaurant that he visits for his show. So yes, he visited and filmed at Darwell's, but no, that's not why you should come. The real reasons you should visit Darwell's are that... More

Our dining experience started when we placed our order. The cashier was quite entertaining and totally knew the menu items. We were entertained and laughed a lot as he described the menu selections. Had a pasta chicken dish which was great. Will definitely return the next time I am in town. The food was fresh and delicious. The patio with... More

Food is always 5+ star. I love eating and listening to the music. Papa D is a great entertainer. Hope they do well in their Jackson, MS area location.

Saw Darwell's featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives several years ago. Tried it & have returned several times. New Orleans style food. My friend chose cheese grits with shrimp and I ordered the pasta with shrimp & "Yum Yum sauce". Both were excellent. The atmosphere is very unique. Walls are adorned with Papa "D's" artwork. Family establishment.

This was our first time at Darwell's and it was wonderful. The food was great and the service was very good. Good place to have good food and relax for a good time. Will return next time in town.

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 without fryers. Whether you are looking for a great creole, jambalya, or just some good... More
