Description: Darrell’s is a family-style seafood restaurant that’s been a favorite on Roanoke Island since 1960. Seafood is the definite specialty; the fried oysters are widely touted as the best anywhere, served with the traditional fixings of cole slaw, french fries and hush puppies. Locals know that Darrell’s does seafood right. Land food, children’s fare and light eaters’ dishes are also available. Darrell’s is now serving the best BBQ and BBQ Ribs fresh off an all narural wood fired smoker. Helpings are heaping and desserts are delicious, if you have room. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served Monday-Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday’s.

After a visit to the NC Aquarium and upon recommendation from an aquarium worker, my family and I stopped at Darrell's for a late lunch. Everyone had something different from the meatloaf special to fried oysters and the food was homecooked and delicious. Service was fast and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a lady from a nearby town. It is where the locals eat, which is usually a good thing. For lunch, I had the fresh blackened broiled mahi and two side items (including rice and beans) ... excellent and very fairly priced ($9.95). My wife had the seafood basket, also very good. Service was prompt and knowledgeable. One of our favorite meals of the week. Just like with any restaurant, you have to ask the waitress about what is fresh and what she recommends.

We tried this spot after another local restaurant across the street went downhill. We won't return. The woman seating our group with a wheelchair was snotty and did not accommodate the wheelchair. We moved ourselves. The server brought different food at different times with no apology. The crab soup was more like a bowl of congealed gravy. When returned, no credit on the bill and no offer to bring something different. Hush puppies were cold. On a lighter note, the BBQ was yummy. Just not good enough to return!

Great little family owned place. The food was good, service was great and everyone was friendly. Prices were very reasonable and didn't get the vibe that you needed to eat and leave. Would go back.
