South of Pearl makes it's home in the historical "Boatwright House". Built in 1900, this beautiful home was acquired by J Todd Hardee, Funeral director and County Coroner, in 2015. After a complete remodeling to original standards, Hardee opened a neighborhood restaurant and community venue. He, along with a great staff, provide lunch service Monday through Friday.

Testimonial from our client

Went with friends for a fun night out. Todd & his staff were top notch & the food was amazing. We tasted a little bit of everything; BBQ, ribs, ribeye, twice baked potatoes (OMG), pimento cheese, collard greens egg rolls (I don't like collard greens but they were yummy). To top it off, homemade pound cake with fresh strawberries & ice cream. Did I mention the best Pinot Grigio I've ever had? And I'm picky about my wine. Thank you Todd for a superb night; especially the limo ride!

Testimonial from our client

We were so impressed with our dinner last Thursday evening! Todd has done a wonderful job renovating a beautiful historic home. The atmosphere is up scale but laid back and the service was fabulous! Wine was good and the food was superb. It is a wonderful way to spend a Thursday evening....wish SOP was open more often!! We will be back! Thanks Todd for bringing a classy restaurant to Darlington!

Testimonial from our client

Just go! It's impressive. The "house" is beautifully quaint. We were greeted warmly at the door, like old friends. Food and drinks were flawless; we both ordered the ribeye and were not disappointed. Can't wait to return
