We had supper here our pre island night. It's a well run old type diner where you will find a great selection of homemade comfort food. The service was excellent by Jeanette!! The roasted chicken was delicious and the homemade pies are too die for.

Darrow was a favorite resturant of my parents for decades. Every time I'm in the area we dine here. Everything home cooked (think comfort food), reasonably priced and the best pies anywhere!!
