We have eaten at Darb's many times over the years. Their food is O.K. but not what we would call really good. It's an O.K. place to go once in awhile. :)

From the street , it looks ordinary...newer building between 2 older Main Street buildings. Inside it opens up into a 2 story bar/grill with old brick walls and lots of flat screens. We had Italian grinder with homemade chips and 1/2 pound fresh hamburger with fries....both perfect. Service was perfect too... Very prompt. Drinks were a good size. Restrooms were... More

Recently revisited the local watering hole Darb's in ER. The menu hasn't changed but maybe the food preparer has. The menu always sounded good, but when the food arrived it was disappointing, usually waaaay too salty, undercooked, overcooked, greasy, not so good bar food. So when my husband and I lunched there a few days ago I was happy to... More

The menu is extensive though I imagine not much is made from scratch. Their huge calzones can feed two and their pizza is pretty good. It's the only thing that can pass as a date night bar in Eaton Rapids. Big tables so you can put lots of people together for TGIF days. They have a pool table. I have... More

My son and I went to Darbs for dinner at 5:15 pm half the tables had reserved signs on them for 6:00pm. The server told us we could not sit at any of them. Mind you it's 5:15 and nobody was there yet! A nice man sitting with some friends said we could sit with him and his friends. He... More

I have ate breakfast here as well as lunch. Good food, prices are better than most. Service could be a little better sometimes, but have had an overall good experience. This place is under new management and has improved right along. I wouldn't hesitate to take anyone there for a meal or a drink.

I love the place and it's environment it has to offer but I am very disappointed by the food. I ordered a personal burger and fries to go. When I walked in the waitress was nice but it took a while before she waited on me. If it had been busy I would have understood but since there were 5... More

Over the last few years, Darbs has become more involved with the community and has become more of a family resturaunt. The place is cleaned up and continues to clean up more and more everyday. There are a lot of staff that have been the for a long time and do a good job. Go Hounds!
