Went and got some take out on our way out of town. Food was good. Took awhile and the servers were run off their feet. Barely any room for anyone to move so we stepped out and waited on the patio. Food was definitley pretty good though.

After all the hype and glowing reviews, we decided to wade in and try the marquee burgers: the peanut butter and the nacho. Lactose intolerance made us pass on the famous milkshakes, but we did try Darrell's beer... Verdict: not as good as the burgers. But, the burgers were awesome. From my perspective, a great burger relies first on the... More

I used to come here regularly for corn chowder when I lived in Halifax a decade ago. The food and atmosphere couldn't be beat. So when my husband and I came to Halifax for a weekend at the nearby Waverley Inn, I had to come back. The food was still great, the atmosphere was good too, but the best feature... More

Wife and I went out for lunch and went to one of our local favorites Darrell's. Service is always fast and attentive. However the past few times I have noticed the quality of food is not meeting my expectations. I always go for a wrap as they are usually my favorite however they are getting cheap with the ingredients inside.... More

I went here for burger week and spontaneously decided the peanut butter burger and made the best decision ever.

I will forever be putting peanut butter on my burgers after having one at Darrell's. I also had the milk shake with it and it was really good too, and they leave the left overs that don't fit in your cup which is awesome. Really tasty and affordable.

Visiting Halifax for the weekend, we went to Darrell's twice. On our Friday night visit it was busy with a line out the door. But the delicious burgers were a reward when we got to our table. I went for the Peanut Butter burger - tasty, juicy, perfect. And of course, Darrell fries. For Sunday morning brunch, did the Chicken... More

The wait staff were very pleasant and the food was outstanding. Burgers were perfectly cooked and there was lots of toppings. Even the kids meals were well worth the very reasonable prices
