If you like country style cooking and want to visit a historic building then this is a restaurant you will enjoy. The ham biscuits are what most people rave about I don't eat meat so this restaurant isn't my cup of tea. But my in-laws love it.

Family style meal is always great and Daniel Boone does not disappoint. Started off with having vegetable soup waiting on the table when we were seated. Waitress then preceded to bring out platters of chicken, ham biscuits, potatoes, corn, green beans bread etc. They brought food until you were stuffed, and then offered dessert. Truly outstanding meal.

Seated at a regular table or a huge booth for all your kith 'n kin, when they start loading up that lazy susan full of bowls of steaming food so good you'll moan, and when you realize you can spin it the table endlessly and eat ALL YOU WANT of the BEST Southern cooking in the world, you will be...

Lots of good Southern food. Mostly fresh, however, the corn and green beans weren't fresh. But all was delicious. Our children were thrilled with the meal.

Whenever we are in the area we always try to fit in a meal at Daniel Boone. We have been coming here for over thirty years and it hasn't changed much. The food is pretty much the same and served family style. You get lots of vegetables, ham biscuits, fried chicken, and Salisbury steak. They offer free refills on everything... More

So much food really good and our waitress was really sweet. You are allowed to take home anything you can wrap up. I took the ham biscuits with me and had with my breakfast the next morning. The food is served family style. We went on Mother's Day which was dumb on our part but actually only had to wait... More

There is almost always a wait but it's worth the wait. They do not take credit/debit cards but they have an ATM on site (with fees) so bring cash. Excellent food. Great service. Don't miss out on this place when in Boone.

We went for breakfast. We had to wait a while at 8:15 am so keep that in mind. When we left the line was out the door and wrapped around the building. Its family style where they have a menu and bring it all to your table and you get refills. The food was good. Not great but good. The... More

My husband and I were visiting graduation weekend, and were VERY fortunate to be seated without waiting in line. It was raining that day too...might have had something to do with it. We were seated and waited on right away, and we were taken care of! The meal is brought to your table homestyle in serving dishes, and we ate... More
