We live just outside of Eaton Rapids, and go to Darb's a few times a year. The atmosphere is comfortable, the service is always friendly and the food is pretty consistent. Their kids' menu is easy to use, and we never regret a visit to Darb's. Thanks for being a hometown favorite!!

We had six of us eating and it was my first time and everyone recommended their half-pound burger. They had quite a variety of burgers to choose from. I had the mushroom-swiss cooked medium and I wasn't disappointed. We went at lunch time and although they weren't exceptionally busy the wait time was considerably longer then normal. My friends who... More

Called 2 hrs ahead of dinner and advised our group of 14 from out of town would be there. They had tables all set and waiting. Lots of people there but we were seated right away. ONLY issue was it took 1 1/2 hours before our food came. Waitress did all she could given how busy she was but kitchen... More

We went for a late lunch/early dinner around 3 pm. The place was mostly empty so we expected great service. We were starting to think we would have to order food from the bar, after waiting quite some time to be greeted or approached with a menu. We were just steps from the bar, so we watched the bartender seek... More

We just happened on this place and were amazed. It looks little from the outside but is very BIG inside. Pretty rustic, but very clean. Waitress we had was great! One of us had steak and said it was one of the best he EVER had. I had a flatbread sandwich that was extremely tasty. The onion rings were to... More

Sat outside on patio and people watched while having a great lunch. We had the spinach sale with chicken and warm bacon dressing and michigan cherry and walnut salad in a wrap. Both were excellent. Highly recommend!!!

Everything you order they are out of it. We've gone time an time again and last time our table ordered 5 things that they were out of ...including bud light. I'd love to try the prime rib but they never order enough so I've gone there 10 times to order prime rib on the weekend and each time they were... More
