Beans was the only place I ate in Dry Ridge. However since the pandemic they have refused to take any measures to slow the spread. No workers wear masks or take any visible precautions. I no longer eat there, both for safety and principle, drive...through or walk-in, and can't in good conscience suggest others eat there.More

Amazing Sandwiches! I had the Turkey, Bacon, Chipotle and husband had a chicken sandwich. Both toasted on Sourdough made right on site! Freshness of vegetables was spot on great ice tea, yummy chips! For desert we shared a plan cheesecake slice with Carmel topping-literally the...creamiest best cheesecake we have ever bought! So yummy and large slice we could barely finish! Also bought a pumpkin cream cheese muffin & meals came with doughnut holes we can’t wait to try! Very friendly, accommodating staff, think we met the manager or owner out front and had a great banter! Fun group down to earth!More

We stopped for a late lunch after visiting the Ark Encounter and had fresh food prepared well. They offer a nice variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads along with 3 soup options. We started with bean soup for my husband and tomato bisque for me....Both arrived with a small piece of their warm, grilled garlic cheddar focaccia. Just delicious! We both opted for Reuben sandwiches served on their own bread and grilled to perfection. Husband loved his but I would have liked to have a bit more evidence of kraut on mine. The meat was a very generous amount and both were served with a fresh house made cookie. The cookies were very, very good. As full as we were, we could not resist leaving without a loaf of their sourdough bread. We would go again and try to time it for breakfast next time.More

My husband and I were on a motor coach tour that stopped here for lunch. The staff was great. The proprietor himself met our bus, then checked with everyone to make sure we were satisfied. I had a half turkey and cheese and a half...chicken salad. My husband had a whole chicken salad on their own bread. They were beyond delicious and the cheese on the turkey was REAL cheese, not a cheese product. The donuts wholes were delicious. If I ever get back to the area, I will definitely go out of my way to eat here.More

Looking for a place to get some good local food while on the road is one of the reasons that we rely on Trip Advisor. Beans was rated very highly and we fully agree. The staff was super friendly and informative, allowing us to sample...some of the tangy coleslaw before we ordered. It was not the creamy slop you often find, but vinegary and peppery and a little sweet. We got there too late for breakfast, but the lunch fare was fantastic. The ancient grains bread is a must try, and the sandwiches were full of fresh deli meat. Getting three assorted donut holes was a nice garnish.More

We stopped in for a sweet bite for dessert and found several options to choose from - muffins, donuts, ice cream, pastries, etc. We enjoyed our treats and the friendly ambience. Lovely place.
