Our party went to Miss Bobo's and were thrilled with the setting and the story teller at our table. We were happy to be seated in what was once the kitchen on the lowest floor. The food was already on the lazy susan on the table; giving it ample time to cool beyond what I thought it might have been.... More

I suggest making a reservation to eat at Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House for the day you visit the Jack Daniels distillery. That, along with a stroll downtown, make for a pleasant outing. Miss Mary Bobo seats its guests together at a large table with a member of the community as the hostess. During the meal, she told us stories... More

Was so desperate to visit and eat here but had had no luck with contacting them through various media routes from the UK. But thanks to our wonderful host at Mulberry Cottage we managed to make a reservation. Was not disappointed, met some really nice people, excellent food and obtained further info on the history of the property and Lynchburg.... More

I took my mother and stepfather here after a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery. They were visiting from Iowa and I wanted to show them something unique to Tennessee. We also had my two young sons with us. Miss Mary Bobo's is a short 10-minute walk from the Distillery. You have to make a reservation, which we did ahead... More

Southern Meal served family-style. We ate there at the first seating, so the hostess sat down and ate with us. Most of the hostesses are retired teachers; ours retired from the deeds office at the courthouse, so she had some interesting stories. The young people making sure our glasses were full (water or tea) are able to work at the... More

This is a place where you can have lunch and learn a little history. Food is traditional old fashioned boarding house food. I would rate it as good, but the experience in and of its self is fun. Highly recommend reservations well in advance. We sat at round tables with people from other states. Each table has a hostess dressed... More

Our family reunion is being held in Nashville and we took a day trip to Lynchburg for the distillary tour, lunch at miss Mary boo boo, and shopping. The tour was wonderful, the food was fabulous and shopping was a hit! Only problem was the hostesses assigned to our dining rooms. We had 36 guests and we were divided into... More

Our group of 5 seniors (2 American, 3 British) recently completed a tour of the Southern States. We made reservations here for lunch (1 pm sitting) after having toured Jack Daniels Distillery. We stopped on a weekday in early May. Miss Mary Bobo's is a gently walk from the J.D. Visitor's Center. The home is lovely, with each room converted... More

Miss Mary Bobo's is a unique dining experience. They are owned by and closely aligned with the Jack Daniels distillery. You definitely need a reservation, which we made at the distillery before our tour. There is a very defined process they want you to follow but that process is not really explained. You just kind of stumble upon it. We... More
