The redvelvet waffles were an absolute mistake. Chicken was bland. There was really nothing exciting it except the presentation. We asked for a fuzzy navel for a friend of mine which the server (name withheld) originally said they ‘didn’t have’ and although later delivered. Every bar has some peach snapps somewhere. They later delivered it but after a whole back and forth. It’s really not a complicated drink. I understand the lack of knowledge perhaps for all the mixed drinks there are on earth but it took a few seconds to ask the bartender. The server also delivered our bill sans asking if we wanted anything else although we would have loved to have another drink. Oh well. The band was great and so was the young lady at the host stand.
Good food. Good service. Great live music though a bit loud.
The location had a great vibe. It took awhile for our food to arrive, but we were into the great music. Chicken wings with waffles were a bit overcooked and dry. Did not want to return because the witness was busy. My son's short ribs were to die for and fell off the bone! She had decent customer service and brought out a birthday slice of cake for my dad. The highlight of his evening.
Jazz show during brunch so please disregard noise rating. Brought my mom and boyfriend for their first Darryl’s experience. Food was great as always and the Hostess working the front door was very helpful. My mom is already asking to go back the next time she visits
Atmosphere & food was unreal. Also y’all remembered to bring out a bottle of champagne during appetizers for my boyfriend’s birthday, he was sooo happy and surprised. Thank you so much :)
Great music. Great food. Great atmosphere. Loved the Valentine's Day menu.
I went with my boyfriend and met up with my cousin and her boyfriend there . I’ve heard and seen many good reviews about this place . The ambiance was there, a bar , packed restaurant . There was no space at the bar to even stand . the music was lit . They had a live band !!!! Her voice was beautiful!! Don’t get me started on the food which was A1 quality . Everyone was really nice and dressed really well. Highly recommended!!!
While the food was fantastic, the one hour of the jazz band makes it virtually impossible to talk. Yes, it is a jazz brunch but the band was way too loud. During that hour, customers need chalk boards or something to communicate.
Band was awesome. Food was great. Service was great.
Me and my husband went to celebrate his 42 Birthday the staff there was amazing. The food was delicious we will be there again to enjoy another night out with beautiful music thank you we had a great time
Really loved the atmosphere. Good service, good music, great vibe.
Love Darryl’s! First time to the brunch. I prefer the evening menu, service to the brunch. It was a lot of fun (loved the singer — Valerie Stevens). Not saying I wouldn’t go back ... but it fell a bit short of expectations.
My reservation was for 9pm. Arrived at 9:03. Was not seated until 9:17 pm. The hostess took 3 phone calls for reservations and a 3 minute conversation with another party who arrived after me. Finally we were seated behind a wall where we could not see anything. We were told our server would be with us shortly. Our server finally appeared at 935. At this point we order appetizers and entrees and drinks since we waited so long. As I watch other patrons getting served promptly when they were seated within 5 minutes 3 different guests. Food comes delicious in a very timely manner. Food was on the table by 950. By 10:05 I was ready to go and asked for the check. We got the check at 1025 another 20 minutes later. I wanted to spend my entire night there listening to music and mingling however was not satisfied with the service. The long wait should have only been for the food not service. Next time I know to be more specific with my reservation. Didnt like the wall seat at all
Very enjoyable soul food restaurant near Northeastern. Food and service was excellent. The live band was good, but certainly caused the volume to be up in the restaurant. So if you're looking for a quite evening, look elsewhere, but if you want good southern food with a lively band playing; look here.
On our way to a private party, dressed up, and had ribs Mac and greens. We were shocked at how busy it has become, so don’t forget to make reservations! Great staff, great drinks, and best ribs in Boston.
My girlfriend and I came for my birthday and had a great nice first time experience here. Enjoyed good food and great drinks! The staff surprised me with a birthday song (secretly requested by my girlfriend) along with a complimentary piece of cake. As our night came to an end we enjoyed a few songs from the live band. Great customer service and will definitely be coming back!
Very good selection of different southern style foods with a new twist.
Brunch buffet was a great value and tasty. Music good. A bit loud but def would return
Best fried chicken and waffles!!!!!!!
We happened upon this restaurant and the live music night through Facebook events and I’m so glad we decided to check it out! We will absolutely be back
Great atmosphere, brunch was good and music was fun!
We arrived for the 1st set of a Jazz Brunch. The table was ideal just across from the entertainment and the service was very attentive. As always, the music was great and all of my guests had a great time. We showed some old neighborhood friends a Boston move.
I and my partner are extremely busy. So we decided to meet for dinner before flying out in different directions the next day. We also enjoy live music. As usual we enjoyed everything. The food will bring you back each time. The waitress was amazing. Her spirit, smile, and service was above notch. Then we get to Angela Hightower, the amazing songstress, whose voice is perfect. So I want to thank Nia for keeping it classy, comfortable, and inviting. Kim Seawright and Gregory Janey
I went on a Sunday Night to celebrate a friends birthday. Even though they normally have live music, they didn't have a band that night but the music selection was good. The food was cold and didn't meet my expectations as a first time guest but even my friend who's been there on multiple occasions said it was below par. They ran out of didn't items on the menu and the waitress said they were slow so she was the only one waiting all the tables. I loved the vibe of the place and will return on a different night with higher expectations!
I really enjoy the music and the food has been a lot better since new owner
Great night overall. Music was phenomenal and the food was very good!
I was not up to par. I take people to DCBK often. But this time with my guy a cousin visiting from MD and my granddaughter the service was average. The salmon burgers we're horrible. My granddaughter couldn't eat hers. I had a few bits of mine. Thank goodness for the calamari app. That salmon burner looked and tasted like it came right out of a freezer.
It's going to be awhile before it crosses my mond to go there. Why bother if it looks and taste like something from McDonald's? The worst! I was waiting for this to let them know.
Fabulous food and great jazz band!
We tried this restaurant over the weekend and had an enjoyable experience. The food was delicious!! Nice southern food. The drinks were amazing!! The band was great. We sat near them and thought we would be dead after but the noise level was perfect. I love that they have a screen that displays the band so no matter where you sat you could see what was going on.
always fun and being able to listen to live music for such a reasonable price! The mini cornbread muffins and chili are delicious!
Always have a good time at the this. Shayla is my favorite server. Very attentive and is quick to fix any mistakes with your order. She remembered me from my last visit and the drink I refer. Service like that is why I keep returning.
I am not always a fan of the live music. Don't get me wrong, they performers are good but the music is too loud and you can't really hold a conversation without yelling.
Great place to eat. I would recommend it. The food is moderately price and delicious but you don't get a lot of bang for your buck. I would recommend it.
Great food, drinks, and jazz
Food was horrible! Old macaroni cheese poor example of soul food live music and waitress great
Nice spot. Comfortable, friendly, good food & music.
Beautiful music, lively atmosphere and bar, and great food!
This place was spectacular. Great vibe, great food and amazing music. Can’t wait to go back.
We love Darryl’s! The Sunday brunch was amazing, per usual. It’s loud so maybe not the best place for conversation but the music and food are excellent!
Great surprise to find this place and we loved it. Live music and great food. Drinks were well made and delish but a bit pricey. Went there for dinner and brunch. Cant wait to go back and visit this place again.
Jazz brunch. Food was great! Will definitely be going back
