This is a great place to go to if people in your party want different food items/cuisine. Well prepared and presented food, friendly service. Amazing dessert menu and the we 2 we had were great!

Darby's had been recommended, but we were disappointed in the quality of the food. The Buddha bowl was extremely salty and was mostly noodles (little in the way of toppings). Calamari was fair, a litle salty and greasy. Prices seemed high. The staff were friendly and helpful, though they were harder to find once things got busy.

We stopped there from the Bangor airport on our way to Camden and was very disappointed. The food was not high quality and the service was poor. To many other places to eat.

Belfast has limited choices. Over the years, Darby's has always produced a nice home style meal. Good service, good food, reasonable prices, homemade warm bread, cloth napkins. The menu is eclectic, with a wide variety.

I don't know if the staff read the most recent reviews or those were just bad nights but the service we had was friendly, prompt and efficient. And the food was really, really good. My husband's salmon was delicious and well prepared and the veggies crisp and excellent. I had the homemade mac and cheese and it was just right.... More

My children and I went on a Tuesday night - we never actually did see the hostess, who was in charge of seating us. A server came at one point and asked if the hostess had been by, and when we said no, disappeared. About five minutes later a young man in a short-sleeved shirt, shorts, and flip-flops sat us...

Hello, we're very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at Darby's on Tuesday night. I do want to let you and readers know that the young man who seated you was not a customer. He was the co host. There was a hostess and a host. We don't wear uniforms, but people can usually distinguish the staff... More

I want to start by saying that the wasabi burger I had was quite good. The mushrooms and fries were both a bit over done but they were fine. However,I found it strange that it took almost 10 minutes to be seated in an almost empty restaurant. We got water and then a minute later our waitress came to take... More

Dear Kristy, I'm so sorry you had such a bad experience @ Darby's. We like to think that our staff is upholding our high standards of service and decorum at all times, but clearly this was not the case when you were in for Sunday brunch. I am sincerely sorry. Reading about what happened, I felt I would be annoyed... More

Ha! I have a confession to make: I don't eat seafood! So whenever I eat in an East coast restaurant, the choice of meals is limited for me. But at Darby's, I had the best meal!

Stopped by for lunch. I ordered linguini with chicken, kalamata olives, tomatoes, onions, & artichoke hearts, wife got the Buddha bowl. Both were delicious. Wait staff hustles! Everyone is friendly, atmosphere is comfy and comical, prices are reasonable. Will return for sure.

Everyone (of all ages) in this restaurant looked like he or she was enjoying the meal--and once it came, we found our meal delicious. It had been prepared carefully to maximize the flavors--teriyaki burger, for example, had the sauce throughout the meat, not just slapped on. And the sweet potato fries were the best I've ever had!
