We went to eat breakfast and were there 30 min after they opened, and overheard the hostess telling another customer that the wait was due to some of the staff just now getting there. We waited about 20 min. to be seated and there was only 3-4 parties ahead of us. The food was only average and when we left... More

If you like southern comfort food, this is the place for you. Period-dressed wait staff that take great care of everything you need adds to the charming atmosphere of the restaurant. The food is wonderful, and there is a lot of it! If you don't want to stand in line, I'd suggest showing up early before they open. Otherwise, be... More

We went there after several recommendations. We loved the servers there. They are very attentive and quick. Food was good but not great. You get your money's worth and you won't go hungry. However, some of it was so salty that it made us sick afterwards.

I have been going to the Daniel Boone Inn in Boone, NC whenever i'm in the area since 1977. It never disappoints. The food and service are always excellent.

We arrived on Sunday at 11 am (when lunch/dinner starts) and waited 40 minutes to be seated. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was just average. Fried chicken was good, the "country steak" was more like a hamburger patty with gravy, and the ham biscuits were OK. Mashed potatoes were real but the gravy was from a mix or... More

We went here for dinner last June and found it to be really great. This time I was disappointed. They don't serve red eye gravy during the week, and I didn't like the chicken gravy, so potatos were a dud. Vegetables were good. I didn't like the biscuits, though the country ham was good and so was the chicken. The... More

Great biscuits and all you can eat family style dinner! Come very hungry and take the extra food home-bring your own containers! Hasn't changed in 30 years so you know it must be good! Great for a big family or friend gathering! Good southern food not fine dining!
