Great Atmosphere

Tasty food. The menu is not particularly large but the atmosphere is quaint and relaxed. More outdoor seating options would be nice.

Great food, friendly servers. I tried a local wheat beer that was great and the food was basically gourmet level.

Located on the grounds of the Berry Hill Resort, Darby's Tavern has the look of a small, real tavern. With a small, but good selection of draft beer and local cuisine, I had a very enjoyable meal with my colleagues at a conference hosted at the resort. Items on the menu included Sesame Encrusted Salmon, Shrimp and Grits, a selection... More

The meals in the tavern are limited in selection, but are good home style cooking. I liked the southern style sides and the atmosphere of the tavern.

I was hungry and this place was convenient. It seemed more like a bar for locals but the food was good and the price wasn't bad. I would not go out of my way to eat here.

I ate at Darby's while staying at the Berry Hill Inn. It's the only restaurant open during the week. It's very casual but the food and service were both good.

It smelled like stale beer was poured on the floor and the bartender was busy flirting and cursing with the girls from the wedding party.
