Strong atmosphere, you either like it or hate it, no imbetween. Food is not spectacular. To enjoy, you must like seasoned food, as in heavily seasoned. You also need to be a big fan of gravy, multiple types.

Darwell's has excellent seafood dishes. Their gumbo and shrimp etouffe is the best. The yum yum pasta one of the best seafood pastas on the coast. They have a great selection of desserts. I love the red velvet cake.

Stopped in for a late afternoon lunch while traveling based on trip advisor's ratings. Friendly casual atmosphere, we both ordered red beans and rice with sausage and a side of cornbread. It was good :)

I had the sampler trio, which was seafood gumbo, shrimp creole , and crawfish etoufee . The crawfish etoufee was the best ! Served with French bread, and sweet tea . Yum-yum !

The place stays packed and we can see why. Their red beans and rice was great.........and a lot of it. You can't beat their Jambolaya either.........straight from NOLA.
