Bartenders with no personality!

Great place to have a wedding, but don't get Carrie and George to be the bartenders. They would only drive you from the place!

Very cozy little tavern makes it easy to imagine what it was like in 1790. However, the service is slow and the food is lousy. I recommend coming for a beer and dining elsewhere.

Darby's is a must if you are any where near South Boston, VA ... hopefully lucky enough to stay at the Berry Hill resort. The menu is top-notch ... my son had a perfectly grilled sirloin and I savored the shrimp and grits. We both dove into the scrumptious sweet potato fries that come with sriracha sauce! Dessert was equally... More

Comfortable. Very good food. Excellent, sharp and friendly service. Quite inexpensive. Very happy that I did not have to venture into town during my stay at Berry Hill.

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.

The ambience, which is what you would expect from a well-maintained plantation home. Very rewarding.
