Great place to unwind sitting outside enjoying the quiet or party inside with music and a boisterous crowd. Either way you will enjoy it! Katina was exceptional and we will return! No reason to drive anywhere if staying at Berry Hill Resort!

This whole resort has to be seen to be believed. Yes, one can go to other antebellum mansions, but Berry Hill truly has preserved the scope and grandeur of the plantation estate. The long tree lined avenue leading to the Parthenon-ispired front facade is awe...More

Darby's Tavern is located in the former Estate kitchens which date back to 1790. Fireplaces used to prepare meals for the Bruce Family are prominent in every room. The tin tables and antique floors create the perfect atmosphere for casual all day dining and unwinding.

Besides the best burgers in South Boston, the menu features Southern and Creole favorites once prepared by Darby, the original Berry Hill cook and namesake of the Tavern. Beverage service includes a full array of wines, spirits, unique beers on tap and an extensive list of craft brews.

Darby's Tavern also features a billiard room, wifi jukebox and a private dining room for parties and events. Outdoor courtyard dining available in nice weather.
