This restaurant is what southern cooking is all about. Breakfast was delicious and so was dinner. The cost for breakfast is inexpensive, the cost for dinner is moderate. You will get your money's worth from both. The breakfast staff is attentive but not friendly but quite the opposite at dinner which are attentive and friendly. If you are on Roanoke... More

We needed a restaurant to eat fish or meatless for Lent that wasn't super expensive. We also needed items the kids would eat. Darrells menu looked to have the best variety for everyone at a good price for lunch. The food was pretty good but a tad dry/overdone. Our waitress was sufficient but pretty short when asked questions.

Dropped in for dinner with a group of 12 - staff quickly put some tables together and did not blink when we asked for separate checks. Portions were generous and food was great.

When it comes to seafood, you just won't find a better place than Darrell's. Not fancy, just great food and great service. This is where the locals go.

Food is great, menu has many options, very busy during peak dinner hours, prices are comparable. Easy to find, great staff, decor is sea themed and some interesting old maps on the walls.

Have had breakfast here many times and it's always great. Service is fast and friendly and the food perfect. The grits are very good and the biscuits awesome. Make sure stop there when you visit, you won't be disappointed.
