I have been to Darrow's in the past. My experience today was poor. First of all...to have your food served on plastic wear reminded me of my high school cafeteria eating days. Second...my turkey dinner was horrible and hardly any food on my plastic plate for the price of $13.99. NOT worth it at all. The walleye dinner was oily... More

Waitress was wonderful. Service was great! Food was fantastic! We were in and out (family of 4 in 35 minutes). Highly recommend the omelets. So good! Portions were huge. The only negative I can think of is that they aren't in our home town :(

Better than home cooking! Onion rings are hand battered and very good. Their homemade Chicken Rice soup was very good! Be sure to leave room for homemade pie...you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful fresh home cooked food. 3 couples all ordered something different. Everything was delicious. The soup, sandwiches, onion rings. Best restaurant on our whole 9 day trip.

The food was good, prices were fair and the service was quick (although our server didn't smile once) but we were not impressed enough to go again. We preferred dinner somewhere else the second day.

Had a great meal here our last night on vacation. Wish we would have gone earlier as we probably would have eaten there a couple of times. The roast beef was delicious; super tender and flavorful. Plenty of sides to fill you up but you really should save room for desert. The Dutch Four-Berry pie was superb, as was the... More
