Thursday special burger and beer for $10 went ahead and upgraded to a Butter Burger for $1 more. Burger was excellent with your choice of butter, cheese, and side. Fresh bun and produce too!

We selected this restaurant for its appeal to outside eating. It was a very positive experience. One benefit was that all beef was free of hormones or antibiotics. Very healthy food. I chose Melanie's Burger and my wife had shrimp. My only objection was the...More

Melanie's is a tradition in downtown Boone serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. We source all of our bread, eggs and burgers locally as well as other items when we can. We have an eclectic and creative menu serving food made from scratch. We are sensitive to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners. Now open evening hours with a new small plate menu, Booneshine beer on draft and wine by the glass. Come see us Thur-Sat evenings and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat on our beautiful deck while you watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Boone.
