Darwell’s is eclectic. The atmosphere is fun and casual. On a pleasant September afternoon we were able to sit outside under the trees, umbrellas, and multi-colored string lights with industrial fans creating a breeze. In our party of seven, we enjoyed the red beans and rice, etouffee, spicy shrimp sandwich, the ham, swiss and crab melt sandwich and craw daddy burger. All were delicious. Try the house dressing with your sandwich. It adds a sweet zing.

A family member referred us to visit Darwell's while we were on the coast, & I'm so glad we did. The crab cakes and crawfish etouffee were the BEST I've ever eaten. The employees were exceptional and very caring. It's obvious they love their place of business & customers. An added bonus was the Thursday night entertainment by an extremely talented young man. We even ate outside to see him. It was an overall A+ experience!

After seeing this place on the Food Network we decided to take a longer way home and stop in for lunch. We had the crab cake and etouffe. It was good and the ambiance makes the place.

Darwell's serves some of the best good on the Mississippi Gulf Coast! They also bring in great musical acts for your entertainment. We are big fans of the Old Fashioned Sunday Gospel Sing. You can also catch great music on Wednesday and Saturday nights! If you want great food, great atmosphere and great entertainment, you really need to visit Darwell;s Cafe!!!

Had the crab cake appetizer and it was awesome! Pan cooked to perfection, topped fresh blue crab meat. Served with their special sauces they set them off to flavor town!!! Also had the etouffe that may have been the best I’ve ever had! Cream based and plenty of shrimp!
