Solid Fare - Time after Time

Okay, so it's not your mother's home cooking. Some of the flavors aren't like I'd do it. But each time I've been the family has been happy and the portions are a plenty - family style. Ham biscuits - awesome. Dessert - scrumptious. Fried chicken and mashed potatoes - can't go wrong.

What more can I say - the food was excellent, the service was excellent, the restaurant is historical - was Boones first hospital and doctors office, and I ate way more than I should have. Just great down home cooking - family style - which means the menu is what they have that day - usually a couple choices of... More

The food, service and facility are excellent. Since it is a set menu, the food arrives very quickly. Family style dining with appropriately sized portions. Not a lot of waste. Everything was very good. Crispy fried chicken which was not greasy. Ham biscuits, mashed potatoes, green beans,corn, apples all very good. Save room for dessert. Banana pudding, strawberry shortcake. The... More

food was bland or over salted. Family style can be done well but it takes some thought to keep food hot and timely. Service was spotty. Not worth the visit

As our waiter said "all you've got to do is eat". No menus. They literally load your tables with 3 meats, multiple vegetables and breads. Dessert too. The chocolate cake is AMAZING!!! Will definitely come back to this place!!

We ate there on Father's Day. They were very busy. The menu was fried chicken, country style steak, biscuits with country ham, real mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, apples, cole slaw, green beans, salad, and a desert choice of banana pudding, strawberry shortcake or chocolate cake. It was all good. The fried chicken and biscuits were superior. If you are not... More

Country cooking family style. No menu but there was 3 meats and 5 vegetables. Drinks and deserts included in the price, which was very reasonable. It was very close to closing time but we were welcomed in and taken care of in an excellent fashion. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We just had our first meal at Daniel Boone Inn Restaurant and were very happy. The food was great and the service was wonderful. The entire staff was very friendly and checked back at the table often to ensure we had everything we needed. They will bring you all you want but the first helping was plenty for us. You... More

Not only was this restaurant saturated with history, but the food was delicious! Don't go if you're NOT hungry!
