Great service! Tyler was personable and attentive without being overbearing. Be sure to try the turnip greens and fried cornbread. My family comes to Berea every March and eats at the Dinner Bell for almost every meal :)

Boone Tavern menu was too expensive and we did not fancy a chain restaurant-so glad we came here. Enjoyed a delicious catfish dinner with nice veggie sides. Pleasant service with a gentle bill made for a very nice dinner.

I don't know if they're open on Labor Day; however, their location close to I-75 makes that a possibility. I'd suggest calling them to ask.
