This is a family style restaurant, meaning you do not order off a menu. They just bring you unlimited fried chicken, country style steak, potatoes, beans, corn, apples, biscuits, etc, etc. They do salad in the summer and soup in the winter. The desserts are unlimited too - and they are excellent. Whenever we visit the Boone area, eating here... More

The food was delicious and plentiful! You are served family style and can ask for refills on everything except the ham biscuits (which were homemade!). My only negative comment is that the country fried steak was really more like a salisbury steak - but that's ok, because I like that too! The brown gravy was especially yummy with just a... More

My family and I visit the Boone area at least once per year and we never go without a visit to the Dan'l Boone Inn. The food is served family style so there really isn't a menu and that may put some people off. The fried chicken is awesome and the ham biscuits are to die for! The setting is... More

Yes at first glance $17 a person for "country cooking" may seem like a lot, but compare that to Cracker Barrel. At DBI, you get 3 meats, 5 veggies, biscuits and choice of 3 desserts, add in your get all you want of everything but ham biscuits and it's well worth it. I'm personally a fan of Shatley Springs but... More

good homestyle food. it is a family setting with private tables where they bring the food to you in bowls. Just like being at grandma's house for Sunday dinner

The corn and green beans were out of a can. The fried chicken was cooked in overused oil. The ham biscuits were hard as a brick. Not a good experience.

Robert Irvine would have a field day on this one. All the sides are straight from the can and the chicken is barely okay. Do not go here expecting a southern country style dinner. It is a far cry from that.

We've come to Boone three times over the past four years and always had a dinner at the Dan'l Boone Inn. The evening fare (served family styleI) has never changed - a salad, fried chicken, southern green beans, baked apples, country fried steak, cole slaw, country ham on biscuits, and a choice of desserts. We got there before 5:30 PM... More

The food and atmosphere here are great and our waitress couldn't have been any better but at $16.50 per person I feel that they should have had more to choose from than fried chicken. As nice and friendly as it is u only get what is on the board that day. No menu and no choice so be sure to... More
