Since 1971 we’ve been known for our 100% wood fire grilled steaks, ribs, and Southern classics. We expanded in 2010 with a $2 million renovation that included two outdoor fire pits, an outdoor bar, large patio, themed seating areas, new large bar, business bar, and state of the art kitchen. Although steaks and ribs are our specialty, we offer a large and diverse, made from scratch menu. With a World Class Bar program consisting of 24 craft beers on draft, 24 wines by the glass, and a 10-page menu– we’re sure you’ll find something to please your taste buds. Our two-story restaurant has plenty of room for all your friends and we’re eager to accommodate groups of all sizes up to 130 people. You

My last meal out before the shutdown last March was at Darryl’s so I thought while I was back in the Boro I would grab my girls and we could have some good food and drinks to catch up. I didn’t look at the menu...prior to going to the restaurant. First mistake. I know COVID has changed a lot of things and that includes how restaurants do business. They handle the pandemic well even though we had to switch tables a few times bc the first one they tried to give us was way too small. Lauren-our server was great about it though and we finally got settled. She also recommended a drink-the Grateful Dead and it was really good. Now on to the food. Ughhhhhh I was soooooo disappointed! I always always always get the snack attack and well they have changed the items and the rules. And they no longer have potato skins which is one of my MUST HAVES when visiting Darryl’s! Ok I got over it and decided to order the sampler instead bc I would still get my beloved shrimp. The shrimp were super tiny and you don’t get very many. I also thought I would get the loaded smashed potato-up charge of course. Well that wasn’t like it used to be either. Now it’s just a bowl of mashed potatoes with a sprinkle of cheese and bacon on top. 😔 The drinks and the food took forever to come out but Lauren was great. Again I know COVID has had to change the way people do business but I will say I was disappointed.More

Since Covid i was looking forward to celebrating my birthday with my favorite chicken tenders in Greensboro. They are advertizsd as ginormous and always have been and cooked light brown and used to be delicious. Went there 1-17-2021 waited for 1 hour for them to...open (did not realize hrs chgd) only to get chicken tenders I could have gotten anywhere and they were over cooked. I also ordered as my side loaded mashed potatoes (1.50 up charge that no one mentioned). Also mentioned birthday and was not even offered a scoop of ice cream...needless to say no longer my favorite. On line it says the tender plate comes with two sides but it came with one with a premium and the potatoes were a small portion of lumpy potatoes...More

We stopped in twice this weekend since we were in town. The food and service were the worst we had ever experienced here. The only redeeming quality was the cappacino cake.

My family and I went to Darryls on October 24, 2020. I called at 4pm and made reservations for 8pm. We arrived on time and the hostess told me that she didn't have a table available because there was a party of 15 that came...in before us and our table was taken. We could either leave or wait thirty minutes for a patio table. We agreed to wait. Our waiter was polite. Our appetizer was brought out quickly. After a forty-five minute wait the waiter came back and apologized that our food was late, which he told us was because of the party of fifteen and the kitchen was busy. It seemed like the party was the priority. At 9:30pm my family had still not received our food, so we left. While leaving the restaurant the hostess told us to have a nice night and I said that it would have been if we hadn't waited an hour for food we never received. As I walked out the door I heard her tell another waiter that she wasn't going to argue with me. This could have been handled differently. You do not tell a customer that has been wronged that you're not going to argue with them, especially when the customer was polite given the circumstances. The hostess or manager should try to fix the problem, which didn't happen. No one seemed to care that customers walked out of the restaurant unhappy. My family and I will never go back. The hostess was just an awful woman.More

Darryl's always has great service and fantastic food! Their ribs are off the chart and their steaks are just as you ask to be cooked. Don't pass on the chance of a great meal.

Takeout service has been great. I've tried several things from their menu over last few months, and haven't been disappointed. Reasonably priced and quick service. Recommended for a quick dinner.

We were in town for a car auction. Our hotel was across the street from this restaurant so we decided to try it. First off, arrived at 4:15 and were not seated until 5:25. After placing an appetizer order we waited 30 minutes while other...tables seated after us received their meals. App arrived cold. We both ordered prime rib. It was the most fatty piece of meat I've ever received. Just a very disappointing expensive mealMore

I enjoyed my meal because I ate at bar and the bartenders were engaging and friendly. Average food, great beer selection, great conversation made for a enjoyable evening for a traveler. Great Cheesecake didn't hurt.

Ate lunch here. I had an oriental chicken salad which was very good. Hubby had chicken with their own sauce and spiced pecans on top with delicious mashed potatoes. Again very good. Our server was very pleasant and efficient. We will be going back to...try some barbecue.More

I couldn't tell you the names, but they have a dozen or so beers on tap. There's a variety - IPA, Belgian, lager, pale ale. The craft beers are fun to try.
