We stopped to have breakfast the morning we left. The omelet I had was overcooked. The meal was just average but we did have good service. I don't know if I would eat there again.

This will be short for me. The spoonbread is awesome and they seem to not mind bringing it around multiple times. I have eaten here before for lunch and enjoyed much. On this trip we went for dinner. I didn't quite expect the prices to jump so much, but they did. Expect to pay around $25 - $30 for an... More

While our dinner service and food was quite good, the breakfast service was almost painful. No attention was payed to people waiting in line. There were plenty of tables, but the person who was seating people was off elsewhere in the dining too. People walked away. We sat for over ten minutes before someone came over to us. The people...

We had dinner and breakfast while staying at the hotel. I would recommend dinner at another restaurant. Service was slow and I had to send my meal back; it was cold. The breakfast was good, but again service was slow.

This most elegant hotel and restaurant, owned by Berea College, is in the heart of this small twon of gardens and college buildings. It was the subject for a... More

We stayed here as well. Breakfast was fast and delicious when we ate. Loved it. Dinner - was slow and waited and waited. My husband's dinner was great but mine not and very Pricy. It depends what you order. It is high but remember this is relaxing and to be nice slow dinner. Order the right dinner - no lamb... More

We were disappointed with the two meals we ate here. We were told we would need reservations so we made them. A lady walked up to the hostess as we arrived for breakfast and requested seating for a party of 10 and while we had to wait as they prepared a table for them, they didn't even ask if we... More

My husband and I had a nice stay at this hotel Saturday night. We made reservations for Sunday brunch.We were seated by a young hostess at a great table by the window. Other servers came out to greet their guests, and get drink orders. Our server came out about 10 minutes later, sauntering to our table.The buffet was loaded with... More

My husband and I had timed our trip from Cincinnati to North Carolina so that we would hit the Boone Tavern at lunch time. We arrived at 11:15 and were the third party seated (the other two were a couple and a foursome). The wait staff was pleasant and we enjoyed the novelty (for us, anyway) of being served spoon...

Had great service from the staff and the food was above average. Not the best we've had but the dining experience at the Boone was well worth it. The spoon bread comes with the meal and is an experience in itself. Would recommend and return again.
