When looking through Zagat's list of Boston restaurants, I came upon Darryl's. Because we were traveling with 2 older kids who are fussy eaters, I was trying to find locations that would please both my husband and I and the kids. Darry'ls was noted for having Boston's best fried chicken, and since my stepdaughter loves that, and I liked other... More

Went to Darryl's Corner Bar last night. Darryl Settles has the magic touch no matter what he does. The restaurant/bar/lounge is a great eclectic mix of people from all walks of life. The Jazz is always first rate. We started with the big bowl of Beets which were excellent, followed by the Crab Cakes that had a sauce that was... More

I just wanted to tell you that My family and I came into the city to go to the Museum of Fine Arts. After 5 hours of that we were starving and wanting something good to eat. We entered Darryl's around 5pm and were greeted by a great host who made us feel at home. Seeing it was early in... More

I've been to Darryl's several times, usually for a birthday celebration. Each meal I've had has been very delicious. I highly recommend the fried chicken wings with peach chili sauce as an appetizer, always a crowd pleaser. My one gripe is that portion control is out of control. WAY TOO MUCH. Why do American restaurants still do this?!? I want... More

Our waitress appeared to be on drugs. Food was good but service and management were beyond horrible. We waited more than a half hour to get drinks tonight and were greeted by a mid-drift bearing trashy looking waitress who knew nothing about the menu. She literally could not name one beer that they had on draft so I had to... More

We made reservations on a Saturday for 5:30 as we were seeing a show at the symphony at 7:30. We chose Daryl's because of the walking distance to the BSO ( the walk was under 10 minutes even while battling a snowstorm). When we arrived our coats were taken and we were seated promptly. The wait staff was very friendly,... More

The music and ambience distracted you from feeling like you were dining with the party next to you. I'm assuming that because of the live band (who were great!!) they lost a group of tables which made the seating tight. The bartenders were great and accommodating as it got crowded by the bar as we waited for our table. I... More

Being from Louisiana, we never thought we could eat anywhere in Boston that knew how to season their food. Not the case at Darryl's! Get the catfish fingers--delish! Great grilled salmon and green beans. And a great New Orleans jazz band. Perfect Pomegranate martini! Small and quaint bar/dining room, so a reservation is recommended. But loved how they don't try... More

Searching for a different type of dining experience during a recent weekend trip to Boston, we came across Darryl's Corner Bar and Kitchen. A jazz soloist performing with a small combo was the lure, the promise of delicious soul food sealed the deal. Easy walk from our hotel near Copley Square. First the dinner: hubby's a vegetarian, so it's sometimes... More

We made a reservation for dinner at 7:30pm on a Friday night, well in advance earlier that week. When we arrived right on time, we were told that our table wasn't ready and that they needed "a few minutes." There was a line out the door and the waiting area was packed, so fair enough, we thought and waited right... More
