We had a crowd. Service was very good. I tried the jambalaya and that was quite good. Decent sized serving. I believe all were happy with their meals and drinks.

Katina was great. We were able to watch some of the NCAA tournament and the pool table was a great bonus.

Visiting Berry Hill Plantation is like taking a step back in time. Whenever I am in Halifax I like to stop by for lunch. The Tavern is warm and hospitable. I ordered the burger and it was delicious. I am a french fry snob and theirs were perfect if you like Irish or British style chips - large but crispy.

Staying at the Blueberry Hill Resort where the restaurant is located. Very good food and atmosphere in a building that was the old kitchen for the Plantation. Waitstaff is great, personable.

The night before Thanksgiving, the main dinning room is closed and the Tavern has only one server, every table is full and there is a group of approximately 25 in the back room. Shrimp and grits entree consisted of 3-4 shrimp, a scoop of grits and a large moat of Roux poured over the top.

Part of Berryhill plantation Darbys has a limited choices but all the items that I have tried were all very good. From the burgers,to meat loaf ,to baked macaroni you will be pleased. Keep in mind it is a small pub that dates back to 1850 or so. Don't forget the dessert.
