“Somewhat overrated”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Very slow service - probably supposed to be "genteel" - but food was good. Loved the spoon bread and the seconds on it.
From what we are used to, this tavern seemed a little old-fashioned and slow,too much for our taste.

“Give it a try”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

The first time I tried to eat here was a Sunday evening and the place was nearly empty but I waited a long time to be seated and then no one spoke to me at the table, so I left. The next day I tried again at lunch and it was everything the first try lacked. Also, the lunch menu has much more variety than the dinner. I'm glad I gave the students who work here a second chance. My food was very good. FYI no alcohol in Berea.

Wonderful meals that were thoughtfully presented and composed of many local items. Staff very friendly and made up of Berea College students. Excellent breakfasts and dinners.

“Still a great meal”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We stopped in Berea for a weekday lunch, it had been about 5 years since we had been to the restaurant. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor I find I agree 100%, it is a great place to visit and eat a meal. We both had salads, they were fresh, crisp and nicely presented. Our server, Aaron, was pleasant, capable and polite. He served us quickly and correctly, he didn't ask who had what, he knew. If you are looking for a fresh dinning experience stop at Boone Tavern.

“Decent weekend breakfast, but not spectacular”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Service was excellent, but the breakfast was just okay for the price. It's standard breakfast fare ... Could likely eat just as well, and more cheaply, elsewhere.
