My husband and I recently visited the Dan'l Boone for the second time- it was even better than we remembered. We went at a great time and didn't have a wait so we were seated quickly. The food is quite good and is plentiful. My favorites are the fried chicken and the ham biscuits. The biscuits: fluffy, buttery goodness. Truly... More

My family of 5 loves a family style buffet and this place just happened to serve family style. We loved the old world atmosphere. It was like dining with a piece of history. Service was good and food which included ham biscuits, salad, country style steak, fried chicken, along plenty more.....was delicious. To top it off, we were entertained by... More

Expect a wait, sometimes long. But it's worth it. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. Servers are friendly and attentive. Food is very tasty and abundant. True southern cuisine served family style. No menu, just bowls and plates of that day's selection. Lovely small flower gardens. We don't miss a visit here when in Boone.

We enjoyed the family style restaurant of Daniel Boone Inn. The chicken was very good, the biscuits yummy, mashed poatoes, all the fixins' as they say. Good food, good prices, endless sides, all in all good. My husbands fave were the ham biscuits! I will say, it was good food, and a lot of it, with great service to boot!... More

We came for breakfast with a very large group (had a reservation). The service was great for the amount of people we had and the food was delicious. We did have to ask for a few items (coffee, refills on food or drinks) but the servers were prompt in getting the items we asked for.

We live a little over two hours from Daniel Boone Inn, but it is worth the drive. Food is awesome, service is great, and the banana pudding....just no words. You will not be disappointed.

We enjoyed this restaurant. The southern style home cooking served family style was a treat. It was reminiscent of Sunday dinner at my mother-in-law's house. There was more food than we could eat, but we put a good dent in it: fried chicken, steak and gravy, ham biscuits, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, coleslaw, fried apples, banana pudding and strawberry...

I love eating family style, and I love good food - so this was right up my alley. Biscuits and cherry preserves were yummy - our nine year-old ended up finishing off the rest of the preserves with a spoon. Then a very simple salad (iceberg lettuce with a cucumber slice and ranch dressing) were brought out - I think... More

I was told by at least 4 people prior to my trip to Boone with my kids that we had to try this restaurant! So glad we listened! The food was amazing! We had never experienced a family style restaurant, boy do they bring on the food! We were not disappointed with anything that was brought to our table and... More
