Darryl's Corner Bar and Kitchen
Mother's Day = SuccessI had the pleasure of taking my wife and family there for Mother's Day and we had an amazing brunch. The only real Soul Food spot in Boston is Darryl's.
The bacon, grits, cheese eggs, and fried chicken is GREAT! I will return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service, and music!Went to Darryls on a whim and it was an excellent decision. Food was outstanding. Braised short rib just fell off the bone. Gumbo, ribs, cornbread, and hush puppies were spectacular as well. There was a live band with tons of talent. We went late in the evening, so we were lucky enough to get blues with our dinner. Our waitress was awesome. One member of the party is visually impaired, and when the waitress saw them usin a flashlight, she turned the lights up before we had even thought to ask. Super friendly and helpful! Highly reccomed this place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a GREAT 35th birthdayHad a GREAT 35th birthday dinner :) Good food, staff, band, ambiance!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot. Food (ribs) wasGreat spot. Food (ribs) was fabulous. We plan to return, may also try weekend dance scene.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was Easter Sunday so everybodyIt was Easter Sunday so everybody was upbeat, but it seemed the staff was naturally friendly and positive. From the hostess to the waiter to the musicians to the gentleman who appeared to be the manager, everyone was intent on making sure we had a good experience. The food choices were excellent - from healthy to southern comfort - with something for everybody. I can't say enough about the experience. Exceptional in every respect.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food. Really niceFabulous food. Really nice staff. Outstanding music but way too loud for comfort. We were seated right next to the jazz combo and we literally could not speak for the hour set that they played. It was uncomfortably loud, probably unsafely loud. I realize the place is small but I would recommend that they put the jazz group up against the far wall at the bar end of the restaurant. That way they could set up another dining table where the band currently sits, allowing the restaurant patrons to have conversation while the jazz music plays at the far end of the room.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Easter Sunday Jazz BrunchThe Easter Sunday Jazz Brunch was a lot of fun. The jazz was lively (and very well played), the food was classic southern cooking, which we loved. The restaurant was a bit crowded (it was Easter, after all) but had a festive atmosphere. The restaurant had a lot of character. We had never been to Darryl's before but we would like to go back again to listen to more jazz!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Easter brunchWe went for Easter brunch for our first visit. Staff excellant, food excellant, loved the music ( a little loud).
We will definitely return!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWHole staff very friendlyWHole staff very friendly and helpful without overdoing it. Creative versions of classic foods were done very well (and food was plentiful). The band last Friday was terrific - mellow and relaxing and not too loud to prevent conversation.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of fun to have a deliciousLots of fun to have a delicious meal AND great music. Music starts 7ish so you can enjoy it while you dine. Other places seem to start music late.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat great food, extremelyGreat great food, extremely attentive service. Our only complaint (and for 3 visits, this was the first time it was a problem) was the music: WAY too loud for a small space. Even being in the backroom in the farthest table, we could hardly hear each other talk.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat times at a wonderfulGreat times at a wonderful neighborhood establishment.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious southern food.Delicious southern food. We caught live music on a Friday night. A very special addition to Boston.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the most consistentThis is one of the most consistent and consistently good restaurants in Boston. And the most fun.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Darryl's, but thisI love Darryl's, but this last visit was a little disappointing. This is the best fried chicken in town ("glorifried" they accurately call it). But this time the crispy coating was a little mushy. The chiecken itself is marvelous--really high quality. And the sides--I had spinach (perfetly prepared and very fresh) and black-eye peas and rice--absolutely scrumptious. But don't know why the coating for the chicken wasn't up to the usual standard.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always. FriendlyGreat as always. Friendly atmosphere. And the best fried chicken in town--truly (as Bob the chef used to call it) "glorifried."1/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
