Happened into Derek's on a random Wednesday night with my husband and our close friends. We were casual and felt a bit underdressed for the occasion, but the hostess was friendly and sat us immediately without even a second glance.
We each ordered a beer and a small plate appetizer (Fried Green Tomatoes) for the table. One friend also ordered the special soup (with chicken gizzards, collards etc.) We tried/shared everything and were so pleased we actually got a second soup to share.
For dinner, our group ordered Skirt Steak, Crawfish Pasta, Pulled Pork Flatbread and a Blackened Tripletail, with sides of brussel sprouts and garlic fries. Shared and enjoyed by all. Finished the meal with cappuccinos and several desserts (Bread Pudding Beignets, S'mores and a Peach Panna Cotta).
This meal was incredible! Can't say one negative thing! The server, Laura, was extremely friendly and helpful with the menu and Derek himself came out at the end of the meal to answer an art question for us and stayed to chat about the food. :)
Found the entire experience to be positive and delicious! Two thumbs up - THANKS - we will be back!
