Delicious Southern cooking with enough of an update to make it interesting. Everyone gets spoon bread as an appetizer. I had the tricky pork chops, with grits and greens, and it was the best dinner I'd had for quite awhile. The pork was delicious, and I couldn't eat it all. Husband had lamb meatloaf with a delicious sauce. It's pricier... More

This is a rare find in eastern or southeastern Kentucky. The food is always great and prepared with great detail. I have never been disappointed and the staff go the extra mile to make sure everything is the way you would want it. Usually have a daily special and several signature items.

Awesome food, great staff and very friendly people. Delicious food, more expensive than most places in Berea, but one night out it was great.

The breakfast was absolutely delightful. Brewed tea with Kentucky farm fresh egg omelet with a biscuit and homemade jam. Does it get better than that?

My wife and I wanted to do something different so we headed to Berea, Kentucky for a long anniversary weekend. We wanted to have a special dinner at the Boone Tavern because of the history of the restaurant. We were a little disappointed in the Boone Tavern to say the least. For the price, we expected much more, it was... More

Breakfast was delicious! The cheese grits were amazing and the French Toast was the best we'd ever had, even when we ate the left overs 2 hours later. :) The atmosphere was fancy but comfortable and the service was excellent!

Lovely dining room that takes you back in time with the local menu and terrific staff. The ambiance reminds you of the old south in a most beautiful college town.

Pulled off in Berea KY, for just a quick side trip and a bite of breakfast, what a delightful town. We followed the signs to the historic Boone tavern to see if they served breakfast. I expected a little rustic tavern but was greeted with a very elegant hotel. So pretty and breakfast was very good. I've not stayed here... More
