The day we visited the menu included fried chicken and meatloaf. I am not a fan of meatloaf, but this was delicious. Food is served family-style, and the hostess provides great stories and conversation. If you are in Lynchburg, strongly recommend this as a stop.

After touring Jack Daniel’s, we ate at this historical place. It might be a bit weird at first since you are eating with strangers, but it’s the south, so everyone is friendly. The food is worth it too!!

I made reservations in advance for 3 people and paid by credit card at that time. We were unable to go due to illness and I was refunded my money even though I cancelled the reservation the day we were to attend.

Wonderful old boarding house. The food was served family style, and was absolutely delicious and plentiful. We were at a table with 9 entrepreneurs from Canada, and we had a wonderful time talking with them. Each table has a moderator who tells the story behind...More

I would allow a minimum of 1 hour, 90 minutes would be better. We had lunch and then did the tour with little time between, so I purchased the tour tickets at the Jack Daniel building and then went to lunch. That way they... More
