Description
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.
