Description: Darrell’s is a family-style seafood restaurant that’s been a favorite on Roanoke Island since 1960. Seafood is the definite specialty; the fried oysters are widely touted as the best anywhere, served with the traditional fixings of cole slaw, french fries and hush puppies. Locals know that Darrell’s does seafood right. Land food, children’s fare and light eaters’ dishes are also available. Darrell’s is now serving the best BBQ and BBQ Ribs fresh off an all narural wood fired smoker. Helpings are heaping and desserts are delicious, if you have room. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served Monday-Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday’s.

Best seafood available and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. This is a family owned business and I see why the locals eat here.

We enjoyed our meal here. Husband had the flounder popcorn shrimp special. Generous portions. I had chicken tender and pork BBQ. Chicken was lightly breaded and very moist. Good BBQ. Opted for potato salad and special corn pudding. So glad I did! Service was quick and staff was very friendly. Nice local spot that makes you feel like a local!

Good basic menu with good prices. BBQ and fish tacos were excellent. Would recommend the fries and onion rings for choices of side dishes as both were very good. It was a nice place to take your family.

Scallops were to die for. Grilled pork chops were very good. LOVED the hush puppies! Loved the cole slaw. Service was very good. Prices were reasonable and I'd recommend this restaurant to others.

The atmosphere is great at Darrell's. It has a real local appeal that befriends everyone. Breakfast was excellent. My omelet filled the plate. Maybe a little easier on the onions. The grits were creamy and yummy. Way more than I could eat and a great value.
