“Eh, okay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

The food is what you expect for bar food. I ordered the salmon sandwich and liked it but it was missing something. It's somewhat of a bland sandwich but that doesn't bother me too much.
The beer selection is good. The poor rating is due to the snobby staff and average decor.

“Food was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We had drinks and dinner at the bar here. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the salad I ordered it even came with a cilantro vinaigrette that was delish. My husband liked the bar atmosphere. Everything was very inexpensive. We loved it.

“Typical bar food...great beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

This bar has the typical bar food but an excellent selection of craft beer. Friendly staff and gorgeous wooden bar and architecture. Not your typical dingy college town bar.

“A decent bar for a beer and a bite to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Although my wife and I are a couple of generations away from students, we enjoyed our visit to the Boone Saloon. Granted, it was pretty quiet when we went in but the young barmaid was very nice and we also enjoyed chatting to a couple of young locals.

Our beer was fine and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal of Buffalo wings and a grilled salmon sandwich.

“Best Bar/Saloon in Boone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is a great location to grab a meal, drink beer, and enjoy a game or band. This is the traditional bar for Boone Faculty and Grad students. It is not a popular bar with undergrads unless a band is performing.
