We ate there about six years ago and it was absolutely wonderful, however this time we were disappointed. The food was already on the table when we sat down, it was barely warm. The choices were not our favorites and thought the price was quite high.

The food was absolutely perfect. Staff was friendly and welcoming in true southern form. The family style was really fun.

If you go to Lynchburg to the Jack Daniels Distillery, make reservations to eat here. You will feel like you are at home with your friends. Awesome food and great atmosphere. On your table you will have food galore. You pass around the bowls and fix your plate. We had Fried Catfish, Bar B Que ribs, white beans, rice casserole,... More

This place is as good as you have heard. Family style southern dining at it's best. Make a reservation far in advance though because it is popular.

It's like stepping back in time and going for Sunday dinners at Grandma's. Everything was totally delicious! Definitely recommend. Very unique and memorable experience!

My friends and I made the reservation a month ago. They only have 2 settings. 11am and 1 pm. The dinner bell rings and you follow your hostess to your table. She has you introduce your self and where you are from. She explains how to pass the food. 2 meats different sides always cornbread, fried okra and sweet Tea.... More

Arrived at Jack Daniels distillery at 1030 on Saturday and couldn't start tasting tour until 1330 so wandered over here. Got lucky and got squeezed into 1100 seating. Better to call ahead for reservations. We sat at big table with other guests and our host told great old timey stories. Food was classic old time cooking...fried chicken, meatloaf, rice casserole,...

Excellent food and lots of it. Interesting history. If in Lynchburg, it's a must stop. Good way to hear what brought others to the area.
