Food was good, but a bit over priced. Also just not that crazy about the famous Spoon bread. Everything else was great and good service.

We enjoyed a very nice lunch with friends at Boone Tavern. The hotel is beautiful and there were local artisans in the lobby selling crafts. We were seated promptly and the food was amazing. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I have eaten here a few times, and, so far, we have not been disappointed. The food and service has always been great for us. It is a little pricey but is a nice treat every now and then.

Service was unacceptably slow. Menu is limited and weighted toward southern dishes like turnip greens. For the price, food was just so-so. But our waitress was a joy and very personable.
