My first trip to Dan'l Boone Inn was over 30 years ago and the experience was wonderful. The food was delicious and bountiful, the atmosphere was old-worldish, rustic, and quaint, and the hospitality was warm and congenial. It has been several years since we had...been back and Sunday we decided to make the 110-mile trip up to Boone, NC for a nostalgic walk down the memory lane for foodies. We arrived at 4:30, thinking we would get a jump on the dinner crowd. We discovered quickly that dozens of other folks had the same idea and after a 45-minute wait we were finally seated. I was disappointed to see that my favorite pork chops were no longer on the menu so we settled in for the fried chicken and country style steak, my wife had the chicken and I had the steak. I'm not sure just when it happened but sometime since my last visit a few years ago the cooks undiscovered basic spices like salt and pepper. Without going into a diatribe of over-explanation let me just tell you straight up. They no longer use any spices in their food preparation. Not for the Chicken, the fake steak, or the veggies. Everything was literally tasteless. Oh, and in reference to the "fake steak," I think it is just dishonest to smother hamburger steak with flavorless gravy and call it a "country-style steak." We made a huge, country-style mistake thinking we could find what we left behind in yesteryear. At least, you won't find it at Dan'l Boone Inn in Boone NC. You will pay $20 a head for a tasteless meal worth $5 at best. Now I understand why the waitress seemed to be gushing with phony hospitality. Save your gas and money and just go to Cracker Barrell. I hear they're still the same.More
First time visiting, (even though we have lived here our whole lives). The food was awsome, and Jenny, our waitress, was absolutely wonderful. The breakfast was bountiful and and the service was professional and down home welcoming. Thank you Daniel Boone Inn for a great...meal for my sweetheart and me.More
Every time we come to the area we make a point of getting there when they open for breakfast. So many different foods to choose from allow both of my kids to find something they like. You will not leave there hungry.
Overrated and underwhelming, based mainly on the food and prices. The three meat courses consist of fried chicken, hamburger steaks in gravy and biscuits with ham inserts. The green beans were dark and way overcooked, and the stewed apples were mediocre.
They intentionally provide no...take out cartons, which you need for this much food when you’re paying $20 a person. Instead everyone is reduced to wrapping anything they want to take with them in little napkins. Since almost all the courses are wet and soupy, your only options for taking home leftovers are the biscuits or a piece of chicken.
This was my first visit to Boone, and I wanted to eat at a historic restaurant, so this is the first restaurant where I had dinner. Every other restaurant I’ve gone to since I’ve been here has had way better food for about half the price.More

Not unless it’s a large group i.e. bus tour groups, church groups, with well advanced call ahead. They are a first come, first serve facility that the line backs up quickly for both their breakfast and lunch/dinner menus......and yes, it’s worth the wait! Go hungry and patient, your turn will be honored with courteous service as you then get to enjoy ‘your’ meal!!
