We stopped for resting on the way to Florida at the Boone Tavern Restaurant in Berea, Kentucky. It takes about 15 minutes to get there from 75. "Boone Tavern has a long tradition of welcoming guests from across the nation and around the world" quoted from the Tavern Brosure.
We spent about one and half hour there which was really good relaxing and we had very good lunch. Students are cooking and serving there. That is an important part of Boone Tavern. The only weak point of my way was the serving. I asked the waiter to give little ice to my Coke but he brought the usual quantity what is the normal way to most of the Americans.
We can strongly recommend this place.

Excellent historical place tucked away in Berea, KY. Food and service are top -notch. The spoonbread alone is reason enough to come here.

They try hard to be upscale yet southern or maybe local. Too pretentious and prices were too high. The service was only fair. The food was OK. The atmosphere is somewhat formal but no one dresses formally. I believe that this is operated by the college.

This was disappointing We have eaten here several times but this visit not so much
Our waitress was less than helpful Our beverages were empty most the meal
We asked about the hot bread and were told it would be out soon
After getting the meal the hot bread had not come yet and when it finally came it was very dry and not very tasteful
The manager came by offered not much of a solution
I believe we ate there on Thursday 19th of October
While we did get seated at 745 close to the end of the evening I did not expect such a disappointing experience

A beautiful setting in an old hotel. The menu was unique, southern cooking, but not all deep fried. The wait staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Spoon pudding is their specialty and is included with your meal. We did not stay at the hotel, just enjoyed the dining room.
