“Charming history”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Glad to patronize this restaurant just for the history & support to Berea College. Had a lovely breakfast of omelets and great biscuits that was reasonably priced. Servers are students, who were quite apologetic at the length of time it took for our orders (new computer launched that morning) and their sincerity overcame any impatience.

“Lunch is better than Dinner”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Visited Boone Tavern for Dinner on November 4, 2013 and was looking forward to a nice dining experience. We have eaten there for lunch and had wonderful food - in fact the best catfish I have ever eaten but dinner was not. I ordered Fried Green tomatoes that were more than crispy and the pork chop dinner left a lot to be desired as well. Dessert was wonderful - great peanut butter pie.
We left with a check of $110.00. Too much money for food that is poorly prepared and for a restaurant that only had 3 tables of customers.

“Great Lunch!! Great History!!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Had lunch in this very nice restaurant! Had reservations and was a little early but was seated upon
Arrival. Berea is famous for its spoon bread so the nice waitress was giving everyone a sample. I I was not a big fan it tasted like cornbread soufflé to me . But I had the roast beef sandwich and it
Was excellent! Had race day pie which is pecan pie with chocolate chips which was delicious!!
A little pricy for dessert! Very classy place and well worth the drive to eat here! On Sunday's they
Have a brunch which is also very good! So if you are in this area give this restaurant a try!! You will
Not be disappointed!!

“Very nice experience”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The Historic Boone Tavern has a well deserved reputation of fine service and delicious food. Our server was great and we enjoyed visiting with her. I don't recommend this restaurant if your party has young children - its just too formal.
The food was expertly prepared and presented. I had the scallops which were delicious and my husband had the lamb pot roast. Please note that this restaurant is in a dry city and dry county - be prepared for iced tea or soda. Don't miss the spoon-bread, its famous for a reason.
