First off, this restaurant is a family style restaurant. That means that there is a set menu and they just bring the stuff to your table. Those looking for heart healthy meals need to keep on driving because this is not the place for you. On the day we went, the meal consisted of fried chicken, country fried steak, mashed... More

This is a tradition in Boone - it is family style, home cookin' - not my cup of tea, but my husband liked it. It is all you can eat, big bowls of food. I don't want to say it is not good, but it didn't work for me - but every weekend there are long lines, so somebody obviously... More

I've been to the Daniel Boone Inn a handful of times spanning roughly 15 years. If you are out for an all you can eat gorge fest and don't care about calories or price then this is your place. However, living in Boone for the last 6 years, I have found far better places to eat in and around the... More

Food and service are the same at Dan'l Boone that it has been for 30 years. Nice people that work there and will assist you with whatever you need, but as I have gotten older the food has too much salt on it and that's all that you can taste in the food. Everyone there is willing to help you... More

I just don't like family style. The food is bland, no flavor. I have picky children so they don't eat much there either. Not worth the money.

I don't know quit sure what people expect anymore but some of the reviews I've read about Dan'l Boone just blow me away. It's not the best around by any means but they have really good food. And for the people that complain their vegetables come from a can, where the heck do you think the other restaurants get them,... More

Just ate at the Daniel Boone for the second time. If you want large quantities of mediocre food this is for you. This is a family style restaurant. There is no menu you are served what is on the nightly menu which typically includes two proteins. One of which is always fried chicken. A couple of vegetables straight out of... More

We went for breakfast Saturday and then lunch Sunday. Breakfast was good, basic food (WONDERFUL cinnamon biscuits!!!!) and plentiful. Lunch was every bit as good, which FANTASTIC fried chicken. We are definitely going back!!

This place has been a tradition for years but I cannot recommend. Old college friends wanted to go there recently and, unfortunately, it was as disappointing as it was prior to the recent remodeling. Ham and chicken were okay, but a small bowl of lettuce with only ranch dressing plopped down with no options combined with canned vegetables just doesn't... More
