I didn't know that Darby's existed until two years ago, when I called to make a reservation at the resort's main restaurant and was told that they were closed but that Darby's was open.

I had the best shrimp and grits here... A huge portion and piping hot and the grits were real and stoneground ! The bar keep was Wanda Crews and she was such a dear and called everyone baby and darling. It's a chic atmosphere and a great place to relax, enjoy a drink and some wonderful food for not much...

During our second trip to Berry Hill we frequented Darby's several times. The food is fantastic and the service is exceptional. The Bartender Catina was very attentive and catered to our every need.

Darby's Tavern is part of the Berry Hill Resort. All of the historical charm of the interior has been preserved.

Adorable little tavern right on the resort we were staying at, all though I know it's open to the Public as well. Could not get enough of the pulled pork! Nice, clean dining, great prices and a nice variety of everything. I highly recommend!!

This tavern is part of the Berry Hill Resort. We enjoyed a nice hamburger, fries, and beer. After the scrumptious food, we enjoyed a few games of free billiards! Very relaxing!

Ok-its not just the beer Folks. The p[lace is in the old cook house for the adjacent Mansion. Its quit but the service is friendly and local. Sandwiches and salads are fresh and In large quantities. After lunch or dinner check out the garden and mansion-great day trip.
