Excellent food and service. Enjoyed the “sweetest weekend” feature meal that included salad, entre and dessert.
Great atmosphere in a historic Inn. Great service. Excellent food. Food was prepared perfectly. Would recommend to anyone wanting a nice dinner.
Valentine's Day special was great with many choices to assure you got a fantastic meal.
We have been to the Boone Tavern many times. The service was very good. The food was disappointing on this trip. The fried items were over cooked. The chicken was tough and I had trouble cutting it even with a knife.
We were disappointed in the gift shop no longer being at the Tavern and just saw vendors with their items in the hotel lobby.
They took up so much room in the lobby and if you weren’t interested in what they were selling it just became awkward.
I am seriously considering not coming back because the changes were bad ideas and it lacked the charm I use to like about the Inn and Tavern.
Dining at Boone Tavern was a experience. Located in the college town and artist haven of Berea it serves classic and deliciously prepared Kentucky cuisine. The service was friendly and accommodating for my elderly mother and the surroundings are gracious. I highly recommend it as a destination for food, the Tavern and the community.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful evening of ambience,great service, outstanding food at a very reasonable price. We even returned for breakfast. We highly recommend Boone Tavern. We will will return. /
Our table had fried fish, shrimp and grits, chicken on a nest, and pork chops. All the entrees were very good except for the pork chop. The updated atmosphere was great and as always, the spoon bread was delicious.
Brunch was scrumptious. Beautiful place. Waitor could have been nicer.
We were staying at the Inn for New Year’s Eve and reserved dinner at the Tavern. They had a special New Year’s Eve meal -so we chose that. The pre-meal clam chowder and the Champagne Strawberry cake were the highlights, but we enjoyed our entire meal. Service was very attentive and the meal was served quickly. Added to a special New Year’s Eve.
We made reservations for Christmas Eve lunch but were surprised upon arriving when we were told there was no menu for the day, only a buffet. This was not noted anywhere on the website. There was a decent variety but much of the food was cold. The service and ambiance were very good. The overall experience was positive and we will visit again but not for a buffet.
Had steak for dinner and it was tough and undercooked. With desert ordered decaf coffee but almosr positivevit was regular coffee because could not go to sleep forca long time that evening.- you need to clearly mark the decaf pot with an organge stripe!
Had breakfast and the coffee was too weak.
We hadn't been to Boone Tavern in years and one of the biggest changes is that wine, beer and cocktails are on the menu. The hotel lobby and dining room have been elegantly refurbished and are warm and welcoming. What hasn't changed is the great food. Our friends are vegetarians and there were plenty of options for them. I had fried green tomato wedges and roast chicken. The chicken was moist and beautifully presented. And the terrific spoon bread is still served. I read mixed reviews on service but our server was efficient, prompt and got everything right. We were too full for dessert but the choices looked wonderful. We'll be back!
The hotel and restaurant have been given an upgrade. They now have a liquor license. Most impressive is the food. Many staples on the menu but new additions. All in our group thought their choices were excellent. The pricing is also very modest for the quality of food.
Nothing beats the ambiance of the Boone Tavern, or their spoonbread!
Had dinner there as well as breakfast during an overnight stay. Quality of the food for both breakfast and dinner was very good. Service was very good although don't expect "fast". That is not a problem as you come here for the atmosphere and to spend time in the dinning room. I would come back without any hesitation. Our dinner meal could have been a bit warmer in temperature is our only complaint. Could have been partly due to the fact we were an early dinner group just after they opened up. Felt comfortable while we were here as well. In my opinion 4 out of 5 stars. Breakfast on its own would have been 5 out of 5.
