Neighborhood restaurant where u drink out of Ball beer mugs(not my thing). The food was just average nothing special. This was our first visit and there are enough other restaurants in the area that I probably won't bother coming. Not bad but just average.

The waiter was nice. Food, ambience, and comfort levels were minus five star. One visit to this Resturant was such a total turnoff, I now have no interest in any Venice venue.

We went hoping they had a Happy Hour which they did not. The food was ok, the place was very noisy (polished concrete floors) and it seemed like the servers goal was to get us served so she could turn the table. Likely won't go back.

Really enjoy eating at Darrell's. great home style country food. Pork chops, shrimp and grits and mac and cheese are the best in town. When Darrell is at the restaurant, he comes out and talks to each of his costumers. Makes them feel like family.

It's a busy restaurant particularly between 3:00--6:00 pm during the wine & beer happy hour. I sat at the bar and enjoyed my delicious meal quiet comfortably. The service and food are down home excellent. No pretentions. It's all about the meat but there are some vegetarian options.

Beware, Apple maps takes you to the old location across the canal. Google maps on IOS was fine and got us there after the mis-direction. We were at Sharkey's on the beach and started to wait, but then decided it wasn't worth it. This place wasn't exactly what I expected, I was expecting more of a steak house atmosphere. It... More

Great food in a comfortable setting. Quick service and hot food in a family setting. Owners are present and visit tables to make sure everything is to your liking. Reasonably priced meals, and there are specials on each night of the week. Corn bread is served with every meal, and sides are done with a southern flair.

Thank Roger C
