Description: Proper is a Southern bistro-style restaurant located in downtown Boone NC. We offer carefully prepared fresh food in a comfortable and relaxed setting. Most everything we serve is made from scratch, in-house, and what we do not make ourselves is all natural and preservative free. All of our desserts are made in-house as well. Our best sellers are fried chicken, collard greens, and mac 'n' cheese, and chocolate pecan pie, but we have much more to offer. Come see us and find out for yourself.

We tried to eat at this restaurant last week. The special was chicken and waffles, but they were out of chicken. Then we inquired about a grilled chicken sandwich,out of chicken.

Needlesss to say, we left. Very disappointing.

Certainly place I wouldn't have picked, looking from the street. However, after reading a review online, my wife and I decided to give it a try. Not fancy, but good down home chow. We had fried chicken, mashed pototoes, limas and corn bread. Everything was delicious. The menu also featured BBQ, Catfish, meatloaf, and Baked Ziti. This place is a good alternative to the Chains.

Our B&B hosts recommended this place. We are so gald they did since we wanted to sample the local food of N.C. Prices are great! Each weekday they have a number of specials to choose from - meatloaf was wonderful with homemade ketchup! The sides were ok- could be fresher, but you pick 2 plus you get a bisquit. The server was so friendly and answered all my questions about the region and the history of the restaurant ( once was an old jail many many years ago).
Nice local experience.

We were there on a weekday afternoon, the atmosphere was hectic, crowded not overly clean but quaint and rustic. They were were out of about half of the items on the menu, even though we couldn't get exactly what we we wanted the food we got was good. One of the female waitresses (not ours) was rude when they messed up our order. We would go back if only for the food. Really good selection of specialty beers.

Great little restaurant in the heart of Boone. Lunch was reasonably priced and very fresh. The pimento sandwich was wonderful. A must stop during any Boone visit.
