We had 6 in our group and arrived 30 min. late for our appointed lunch time of 11:00. We got caught in traffic coming from Chattanooga on the Nick a Jack bridge. I called ahead to let them know we'd be late and Tina was so nice and understanding. Told us to ask for her as soon as we arrived... More

I ate at Mary Bobo's for the first time on 4/5/14, and it absolutely loved it! I don't know if we just got lucky with the menu, but everything was spectacular. Fried chicken, meatloaf, new potatoes, macaroni and cheese, fried okra, green beans, Jacks's apples and rolls. Not to mention the best chocolate pie. I'm a healthy eater and didn't... More

We enjoyed Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House immensely. We had 3 in our party for the one o'clock seating, which was promptly announced by the dinner bell. Our hostess was a charming lady, well acquainted with Lynchburg history and Jack Daniels. Our luncheon companions were very interesting and came from many places in the US. The food was outstanding, consisting... More

A few months ago I took a trip with coworkers to the Jack Daniel's Distillery. Afterwards we came here to eat lunch. Our manager had called ahead and warned the staff of all food allergies so they could put certain people into certain dining areas. Well once we were all there they started splitting us up. Those of us with... More

My family really enjoyed this experience. I was a bit skeptical when I found out the food is served family style and you eat with other patrons. They have 2 sittings, one at 11 and one at 1 pm- I believe. A host eats with you and tells you a little history, the menu changes and you don't know what's... More

Make your reservations early - especially for the 1pm seating! We got lucky & someone cancelled so we were able to go & I am so glad we did not miss this. The food was all delicious & our hostess was delightful - she shared so many stories about the town, the distillery and the boarding house, you could tell... More

Enjoy this great example of real southern cooking , food is served family style, with a touch of Jack Black in at least one of the entrees!

We toured the Jack Daniels Distillery and decided to try lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's. The food was great and so was the hostess at our table. You need to make reservations early ! Good southern home cooking served family style at a table with a huge lazy Susan in the middle so the food comes to you. The okra... More

I loved the place, the hospitality, the house, and specially the food, almost all prepared with Jack Daniel's.

You will need reservations to enjoy this fine cuisine, especially if you are taking a lot of people with you. The food is to die for and each room/table has a Hostess that will tell you all about Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House and how it all came to be, as well as stories about Jack Daniels.
