My wife and I selected 'The Brown' and 'the Special Pork Chops'. Be advised, The Brown is made with white turkey breast, not dark meat. And the pork was loin rather than a bone in chop. The food was quite tasty, unique, and gave an impression of authentic elegance typical of 100 years ago. The furnishings and atmosphere were pleasant... More

I spent Friday evening at the Tavern, listening to roots/traditional music. While at the Tavern I enjoyed a boxed meal of chicken salad on a croissant and a fruit cup. While the food was well prepared and beautifully presented, I would love to see some other bread product than a croissant. I loved the collaboration that Berea College, Boone Tavern,... More

We ate here for both dinner and breakfast during our stay. Both meals were lovely. The dining room is charming. Neither meal was inexpensive. Dinner was at the end of the night, we arrived just as they were closing and our server was gracious and in no way rushed us. The chicken we had was incredible. Breakfast was also good.

After a drive from Lexington, we were delighted with the ambiance of the Boone Hotel and restaurant. Only to be very disappointed in the service and the food. For our table of 8, took over an hour to receive our food; on a week day with very few patrons in the restaurant. I ordered the avocado with chicken salad and... More

We had dinner and breakfast at the Boone Tavern Restaurant. Dinner was almost perfect- server was great, atmosphere was great, the temperature of my husband's shaved lamb entree could have been hotter but it all tasted great! Breakfast was a blemish for us. Not enough servers for the weekend crowd so we had to to wait for a table even... More

Having grown up in Berea and having worked at the Tavern in the shadow of Hogan my standard are a lot to live up to. It has improved and the drinks were lovely. But, it needs to really come up to speed and look at all the potention of the slow-food movement and what Berea College produces.
