When was the last time you had fried deviled eggs? Truly a unique treat! And, the corn spoon bread was almost as good as my Mother used to make. The dining room and wait staff are gracious. The Manger is very charming and knowledgeable. Well-deserved...More

The Buffett was excellent. The dining room is beautiful and the service was outstanding. We had ham and chicken and all the fixings.

We had no expectations regarding our dinner here, and were so pleasantly surprised! They had excellent cocktails and a great selection of local bourbons. The food was freshly prepared Southern food made with a light hand and offering delicious twists on traditional Southern dishes. The...More

Staff was amazing. I had the KY Hot Brown, very good. My husband had the blackened shrimp salad, no impressed with it as shrimp wasn’t even flavored. Very clean classy place. I wouldn’t take my kids there but great for adults only.

We really enjoyed our breakfast in the elegant main dining room of this historic hotel. Our breakfasts, one an omelette and the other scrambled eggs, bacon & toast were beautifully presented on nice dinnerware with a silver coffee pot, which made it extra special. Both...More

The Boone Tavern Hotel offers a wide selection of dinners. We had chicken in a potato nest one night and salmon another evening. Both were good and fairly healthy meals. The accompanying salads were fresh and the spoon bread warm and unique. The Berea College...More

This is a very beautiful restaurant in an historic building. We had lunch and the food was quite good. Service was friendly and excellent. This is a wonderful place to dine. You can get classic Kentucky food and they gave us spoon bread for tasting.

The food was great. The service was good but perhaps a bit of room for improvement. Considering the students of the college serve here, there is room for some forgiveness. Overall, delicious and nice experience

We enjoyed visiting the hotel and having dinner at the restaurant. Though I can't say that the "Hot Brown" sandwich I had was a match for the traditional ones at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, it was pretty good. As a history buff, I appreciated...More

The dining room is lovely, and most service is by students from Berea College (they work in lieu of paying tuition) and is quite good. Our meals were tasty, but not stunning (salmon a bit over cooked). It’s a relaxing and pleasant place to dine....More
