Nice Surprise

We wanted to stop at Berea College on a recent trip to South Dakota from the southeast. We made a point of going to this restaurant. I'm glad we did. Students and alum were our host and servers.

My wife and I had dinner and breakfast here on a Wed evening and Thus morning. For our diner we had their quail appetizer, tomato bisque, bourbon pork chop, and lamb meatloaf. The quail and tomato bisque were very good and done to a turn. The main courses, however, were dismal: pork chop was dry and hard as stone, and... More

We got there about 1:50 on Sunday afternoon - had always wanted to stop and finally did. After we were seated we were told there was a buffet - but the buffet ended at 2 - I asked if we still had plenty of time to enjoy the food? - the food would still be left out so we could... More

Love the spoon bread, found the recipe on line already. We had pork chops, they were great! Service was wonderful. WE had half sweet half regular tea.

We liked both the menu and the food. A good variety of wines where also offered. We had a long drink at the hotels porch after the dinner in the nice Berea evening!

We stayed at Boone Tavern over a weekend for our anniversary. It was college graduation and there was a wedding there so we weren't seated in the main dining room. But even at that the service was excellent and the food outstanding. We were informed by our waitress that the menu was new and that they had just started serving... More

Will start by saying we didn't even dine here. Being the only place in town that has alcohol, we wanted to go here after my daughter's wedding on a Saturday night. We got there at 9:03. Restaurant stopped serving at 8:30 and the area we could get a drink stopped serving at 9:00. 9:00 on a Saturday night? Really? Was... More

We spent a lot of money here, but the food didn't really live up to expectations. A real disappointment. It was also disappointing that there wasn't much selection for vegetarians. However, the service is very good, and all the employees are superb.

This is a must visit place. The food is delightful, the service is just the best, and the decor is most pleasing. I arrived well after the lunch hour on Sunday but the buffet was still most tasty. I started with an omelet. The person making it helped me select the components then made recommendations on how I could make... More

My daughter and I were given $30 breakfast vouchers with our Boone Tavern stay while in town for her tennis tournament. We were very pleased with quick, friendly service as we had early matches. The food was homemade good! We plan to return each May.
