On the suggestion of friends, I called many days in advance to score a reservation at one of two lunchtime sittings at Miss Mary Bobo's Restaurant. After a lovely and informative tour of the Jack Daniel Distillery, we enjoyed a brief walk to town and found the Boarding House that has been converted into a delightful dining experience! The southern... More

Really enjoyed our visit! Victoria our hostess made our room special by sharing the history of the house and area. The food was very tasty. Not a place to go in a diet :).

The experience is such a fun one. Food is serve with a hostess in each room to give you the history of Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House. The food was very good and the staff is lovely. A real treat before going to tour Jack Daniel's Distillery.

All the good things from the south; fried chicken, meatloaf, red potatoes, fresh fried okra, baked apples, green beans, cucumber salad, fabulous mac and cheese and mud pie. It was delightful. Loved having the hostess sit and eat with the group and tell about the history of Lynchburg and the restaurant.

A really great southern family style meal. Fried chicken, roast beef, potatoes, macaroni and cheese, an awesome cabbage casserole, apples, biscuits and chess pie. I know I missed something (s). The food was delicious and I left stuffed. Great hospitality too from our host.

Ms. Theo's wit and humor entertained as she told us tales of history and gossip around Lynchburg. Thoroughly enjoyed the time around the dinner table at this beautiful... More

Come hungry because you are going to be offered great food. The Jack Daniels apples are delicious! The Jack Daniel's topping on the pecan pie is very good. You will be glad you chose this restaurant for lunch.
