“Southern Food at It's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We were very pleased to visit Miss Mary's for a holiday meal. We loved the hostess and all her stories about life at the boarding house. The food was so good! The dressing and gravy reminded me of my mom's. This is a must go place!

“Good food and a good experience...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This family style restaurant is a lot of fun. The food is great (Do NOT MISS the apples), and the conversation is lively and is encouraged by a hostess at each table. The hostess knows the history of the area and Mary Bobo and her boarding house. A fun time.

“Definitely a neat experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

This was a unique experience. The food was incredible! Highly recommend! The atmosphere was very unique. You get assigned a room and then you sit and eat with other people at a large table like you are having a family sit down meal at Christmas. There is a host that eats with you and gives you insight into the history and Miss Mary BoBo as well. It is very intriguing. The service was wonderful and overall, an experience that we really enjoyed. We definitely recommend and we would definitely come back! Side note, if you are shy or don't enjoy sitting with other people while eating, this would not be the experience for you.

“Fun time! Country Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Great southern cooking here. A place not to be missed while in Lynchburg. Something is usually made with the local "product"!
