We stopped for lunch as we were traveling through the area on the recommendation of a friend. The service was a quite slow, but our server was extremely friendly. The spoonbread was interesting, but none of us were big fans. We ordered the catfish with fries - delicious, the beer cheese chicken sandwich on a pretzel roll, tasty!, and a BLT, which was good. The freshly made blue cheese dressing on my salad was probably the best I have ever tasted. My tween got plain pasta with butter sauce from the children's menu, and the pasta was overcooked and gummy and she found it inedible.

The restaurant was beautiful and elegant. The prices reflected the environment, with our lunches with waters totaling $50.

Dining in the Boone Tavern Restaurant was like stepping back in time to an era of elegant, old world dining. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The pan fried salmon melted in my mouth and the spoon bread was amazing. The fruit drinks were creative and tasty. We didn't miss the alcohol one bit. It was the best meal during our two week trip!

The food and service were good. Nice atmosphere with students from Berea college doing most of the work.

We ate here while we in town for the Craft Festival. We all had something different and one of our party said his amberjack was fishy. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly and had a great taste. I didn't want the cabbage and was given the kale. I would have liked a more common vegetable offered. The spoon bread is their specialty and we thought was a bit salty and butter was not served with it. One of the party members got it when he requested it. The waiter was visibly sick and needed the night off. He nose was running (grossly) and he kept apologizing. We felt sorry of him. We know they are students and have to work so many hours for their tuition obligation. We had reservations and were seated immediately!

Didn't stay in the hotel this year, but stopped in and had a very good breakfast with a friendly server. We both had the Kentucky breakfast, and it filled us up for the ride home.
