I visited this restaurant about a year ago. Mr.Darwell will come and introduce himself to guests. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is family friendly. There's artwork of faces every where. Live music is also played here. If you want to drink make sure to b.y.o.b.

Came to the area for a local festival. We've eaten here once before. We shared a large Darwell's crawfish etouffee. It was great. One of the shrimp still had some she'll on it. When you're chowing down, that was a bit surprising. But otherwise, great atmosphere and unique setting. Also, live music. A must try for tourists and visitors to... More

Quirky and fun little place - in Long Beach of all places! Could easily be a piece of Key West or some other tourist town. The food was good - the entertainment was good - the atmosphere was good. Put them all together and they are great! All a little quirky as others note, but a fun place to go... More

This was my first time to visit this restaurant. I ordered the craw fish etouffee and although it was good it would have been better without the craw fish shells in it. I got shells in 3 different bites. It was served with a piece of COLD french bread, but other than that... it was good.

We chose to eat here based on the reviews, and were totally let down on this place. This is a quirky little place that I assume has some kind of local following. The food is mediocre to just plain bad, depending on what you get. I had the sampler, and to be honest, I would not reccomend any of the... More

Great cajun food and music in a funky restaurant off the beaten path. You can eat in but very nice outdoor area where we could take our little goldendoodle. They serve a "cream" based etouffe that is out of this world! Don't pass this place up if you are in the Biloxi/Gulfport/Pass Christian area.

This place is a treat! BBQ smell in the parking lot. No military discount offered. Step right in and order at counter. Daily special was blackened redfish and shrimp over rice. Fast delivery and very flavorful. Clean floors and table tops. Great lunch time. We will be back!

This restaurant has great food and a great atmosphere. If the owner is there, he comes around and draws a picture on your Styrofoam cup.
