There were 4 of us we had Steak, Fish, Hamburger, and a salad. Pretty good food and a lot of it. Nice pleasant place (diner style), the patio is nice to sit on. Soup and salad bar was stocked with lots of choices. Service is fast and friendly as always.

We were looking for a place where we could sit outside and enjoy the pines and fresh air. They have a small balcony for outdoor seating, not a lot of tables, but enough. Good variety of items on the menu, burgers, bbq, fish, salads, nachos, kids menu. Reasonable prices. Service was good. Nice people. Only reason not giving 5 stars... More

Darbi's is always crowded, but always worth the wait. The service is outstanding and the rices are very reasonable.

We had the southwest salad, chicken avocado sandwich with one trip to the salad bar as side (extra fee), onion rings, and sodas. The cost came to about $35 with tax and tip for two for lunch. Everything was good except the chicken sandwich. There wasn't enough inside the sandwich to cover the croissant. The waitress said this was the... More

Darbi's is a really good value. Very good American food . We had the tuna croissant with albacore tuna, avocado and other fresh vegetables on a fresh croissant. Very tasty and at a really good price.

We found Darbi's by chance, and am glad we did. Had dinner there on night 1, and the food was great. They gave us so much, we also had the leftovers for lunch the next day. Had the chili-cheese hotdog and the grilled chicken entree.

Hmmm, may need to re-think those portions. Sounds like we lost you for lunch because of your dinner. :) Ha....kidding of course. In all honesty I think that hot dog has to be one of my favorite items. so glad you enjoyed it as well. Hope to see you next time. More

We eat at Darby's whenever we are in town and it is always great. Today we made a reservation for NINETEEN and they had us fed in 10 to 15 minutes. They were friendly and accommodating and the food was great.

How Awesome! So glad we came through for you on such a busy week....we get a lot of large groups during the summer, and it can be a bit of a challenge putting it all together sometimes. So glad we didn't let you down and you took the time to say such wonderful things, a very sincere thank you! More

I loved this restaurant! It was a bit of a wait (20 minutes), but the food was worth it. I had a Cran-Turkey Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries. It was like a homemade Thanksgiving dinner type turkey sandwich. It even included the cranberry sauce sliced (how I like it). But the cinnamon sauce that went with the sweet potato fries... More

My first visit (dinner) had a problem which was addressed very courteously and I left happy. Went back for breakfast the next day and was very pleased. That was the end of happy. Four more breakfast visits, ordering the same as the "Very pleased" visit it was as if I'd gone to a different spot. Food was indifferent as was... More

I am very sorry you had a bad experience(s), this is never ok with me. I am not sure what happened with both the food and the service to change your opinion of us, but I would like the chance to fix it. Not sure if this site allows you to PM me, but I can certainly be contacted through... More
