Good food just way to much. Diabetics beware and take your medicine. Nothing but sugar and carbs. Bring CASH as they have not made into the 21st century yet with Debit or any kind cards!!!

Our most recent visit was a family football weekend in Boone, but we've been coming here for years. Plenty of good home cooking, nothing fancy, but very satisfying. We always look forward to the Daniel Boone Inn for lunch or dinner at least once when we come to Boone.

Disappointed in food and ambiance and shocked that they take no cards of any kind! Cash or check only

This place has one price and brings you two meats, five vegetables and dessert. It was way too much food for the two of us but we are not big eaters. The price is great if you like to eat but for us we just don't eat that much. The food was excellent.

We went to breakfast at Dan'l Boone's in Boone, NC. The food was hot and plenty of it. The wait staff was friendly. You could tell it was a popular place to eat due to the long line. Even with the line, the overall wait was not long due to the efficiency of the staff. There was plenty of seating... More

We had a great breakfast. The food was plenty for our table. We just asked for mere eggs and bacon which Sarah was glad to bring to us. The country ham is very salty, just so you are prepared; it is supposed to be that way. A suggestion for them would be to have more table busing people. There is... More

This was the first time I have dined at Daniel Boone Inn although I have passed it many many times over the years. The only thing was I had eaten a late lunch that day and so I was overwhelmed with the amount of food they serve. It was all great and I will definitely go back.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had at a family style place. There is only one menu and that is enough. For one price ($17.95 plus tax) they bring all these items to the table; fried chicken, country steak with gravy, the best mashed potatoes I every ate, green beans, corn, coleslaw, fried apples, chicken gravy...

We decided last minute to try the restaurant. Was about 30-45 min wait. A great place to get a home cooked meal. The food was awesome and the staff was very nice. Would go back.

This was our third trip back to the Dan'l Boone. The food is served family style and there is plenty of it! They are known for the fried chicken. The atmosphere is casual and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. If you are going for dinner - I would strongly recommend going early; lines can get very long.

Thank Lisa M
