Great service in a saloon

Had lunch and two points over sandwiches on our free day while moving out daughter into college in Boone. The bartender/waiter/doing everything guy was really something. Gregarious, attentive, and an overall character fun to be around. Unfortunately, I can't remember what sandwich I had (probably... read more

We always make this our yearly stop when we stay in the area. The food is excellent pub faire and reasonable. The service is superb. They even remember what we like before we order. Wouldn't visit the area without at least one, but usually more visits.

Beer is a bit pricey, but they always have a good selection of off-the-mountain beers. They can be crowded with the hippy crowd on some days (Tuesdays with el-cheapo tacos) but the local hipsters are harmless and fun to be around. You may even run into a famous sociology professor while there.

One of my favorite things to go is go to Boone Salon for my Pulled Pork and Pool Pawnsdays. Not a real things, but it should be.

this visit was to enjoy a great local band ( DR BACON) and celebrate my wife's 70 th birthday. Tables and chairs had been removed because of the band. I occupied a stool at the end of the bar. I'm 70 years old also. around 9:30 { the band still had not started to preform} another person began to work... More

Boone Saloon is easily the best bar on King Street for drinks and meeting people if you're not just into the college scene in a college town. The food is good and reasonably priced, especially if you hit Taco Tuesday for a solid cheap meal and lively bar scene. I've always had great service, but I am a bit of... More

The food is what you expect for bar food. I ordered the salmon sandwich and liked it but it was missing something. It's somewhat of a bland sandwich but that doesn't bother me too much. The beer selection is good. The poor rating is due to the snobby staff and average decor.

We had drinks and dinner at the bar here. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the salad I ordered it even came with a cilantro vinaigrette that was delish. My husband liked the bar atmosphere. Everything was very inexpensive. We loved it.

This bar has the typical bar food but an excellent selection of craft beer. Friendly staff and gorgeous wooden bar and architecture. Not your typical dingy college town bar.
