On the way home from the Outer Banks and was very pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. We ordered our seafood "lightly fried" and the oysters and flounder were excellent. Veggies tasted like old fashioned home cooking. Our waitress, Sydney, was very helpful and very knowledgeable....More

Typically beach seafood is good, but expensive. This is a family owned joint fighting that stereotype. The Mahi and shrimp were both great. Super service and we got out $20 cheaper than any other seafood in the area. PS - try the Zing sauce. It's...More

Breakfast was very good. Pretty much equivalent f Cracker Barrel which is a high standard. Prices were very reasonable. Waitress was nice. Food was above average. Recommended

A bit overpriced for what it is, but plenty of food. The fried whole flounder was well prepared, but the crab cakes were a bit bland. Had 18 fried shrimp on the plate, which was a plus, and the squash trio was a nice departure...More

Went for lunch and the popcorn shrimp portions were pathetic. Been coming here every year as long as I can remember and this was the worst meal I've ever gotten. Good chance we will be skipping future meals, but a year is a long time....More

The service was slow but the food was delish! They have some of the best hush puppies you will ever eat. We must have ate 4 or 5 baskets of them! Go for the fried shrimp, you'll thank yourself for it.

I would sincerely go to Darrell's during the lunch hours! The food is quite good, I recommend the crab cake sandwich and fried oyster sandwich. Unfortunately I have not tried other items yet but many of my friends recommend this spot! :)

Darrell’s is a family-style seafood restaurant that’s been a favorite on Roanoke Island since 1960. Seafood is the definite specialty; the fried oysters are widely touted as the best anywhere, served with the traditional fixings of cole slaw, french fries and hush puppies. Locals know that Darrell’s does seafood right. Land food, children’s fare and light eaters’ dishes are also available. Darrell’s is now serving the best BBQ and BBQ Ribs fresh off an all narural wood fired smoker. Helpings are heaping and desserts are delicious, if you have room. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served Monday-Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday’s.
