So great. Had the nicest meal here. Really lovely friendly staff. Kids loved the burgers and shakes. Delicious poutine and fried pickles were so good. Highly recommend.

We are so happy we discovered this place today. We went in with four adults and three kids.. our server switched the tv rigth away to cartoons for them. Attentive friendly service, suggesting the amazing milkshakes, he even personally split it for the little ones....It was hard to pick from the menu, because there are so many amazing and unique options all for an affordable price. We had a small issue, which the staff went above and beyond what we were even expected, and they gave us a gift card so we are forunate to have a good reason to go back as soon as possible. I had the cajun chicken sandwich, darrels cajun sauce was amazing. I hope to try it again sometime, but I am looking forward to trying other menu items. Thank you to our server and staff and kitchen staff. My apologies on the soup on the ground from the little one. Cant wait to go back.More

I am never disappointed when I have gone to Darrell's. The food is always top-notch in taste and presentation, and is always hot. Good portions, and friendly staff every time. :)

This place is the epitome of consistency! We hit this joint up when we want a burger and we are not looking for a new adventure. Every time we have been here it has been bang on, no issues and tasty, also they do the...bacon right for their burgers! I do think it is a bit expensive, but it’s right on that cusp, however on Mondays you can get buy one get on half off and that is almost a for sure night out! The only issue is the lamb burger is not available for this promo, which I think is silly, the cost is about the same on the menu... but I’d like to see it there. It’s been around for years for a reason!More

Overall, I appreciate the quality of this restaurant. I do find the food to be somewhat hit or miss. Some days it tastes great, and then another day, the same order is not consistent and is off somehow, compared to what I was expecting. If...you are okay with waiting 30-35 minutes for lunch it's okay. Service is polite and establishment is clean. Also, lunch can easily come to over $50 for two people for burger and fries, plus beverage, plus tax. So it is on the expensive side in terms of value. Last time I was there, the meal was not exceptional, burnt overcooked fries, and very thin portions in burger ingredients.More

We came here when it reopened after Covid. We ordered burgers and fries and a milkshake. I don't really understand what the hype is all about, as the burgers we had were just average. I've eaten at many burger places and I just can't figure...out what people are seeing that I don't. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but definitely not 'great.' The best part was the milkshake. I don't know if we will return just due to the sheer volume of restaurants in Halifax.More

You gotta try it and they you will know why they are known for it - the peanut butter burger is unique and was a hit with the guys in our group. The BLTCM burger was another fav for our group. Add on a poutine...for the full Canadian experience, you will not be disappointed. Milkshakes almost upstage the burgers, super thick and more than can fit in one glass. Terrific meal, well priced - ensure you go in hungry.More

We hadn't been here in years and obviously forgot how good it was or else it is even better than ever. Peanut butter burger, onion rings, milkshakes, all was pure perfection. Awesome service. Great old-school vibe. Fantastic music. Just go.

Always love Darrells. The Darrell fries are delicious and you’ve got to try the Peanut Butter burger! It sounds weird but it’s deadly delicious! Consistent quality food!

Darrell's is burgers and more for sure. Just because it's a popular spot with the Uni crowd, doesn't mean there is not a lot to offer. All the food is good and well prepared, but most importantly it is very consistent with food and service....It's a place to grab a good friend, maybe take a stroll in the city and end up at a good spot for food and a brew. Service is good and they really get a workout on those stairs. The only negative is that tables are a bit crowded together at times and the rear entrance is not always in the best of shape. But if you want a really good burger and unique combinations, this is the place to go. You won't; be disappointed.More

I don’t believe they do. But you can usually find a seat within a few minutes.
