We were all seated & had begun eating when some last minute people w/o reservations "crashed" our lunch. We barely got a spoonful to eat! No more food was ever brought to the table. Also, the hostess kept screaming "pass to the left" like we...More

We had lunch here. They have created a true down home southern experience. When you arrive you check in then they ring the bell for your meal. Your hostess then escorts you to your room where your table is set. The food took me back...More

Honestly I would rather the history lesson be optional. It's nice to hear about the place, but the monologue can be a little overbearing at times when you're trying to socialize with the people that you came with. Most of the food is good, with...More

I would Google amaryllis Bobo's and give them a call. I am not sure if they do any shipping. If I were the guess,I would say no they don't. But, go to the "horses mouth" to get the right answer.

I know the day we got there, they were turning people away that did not have reservations. I would not risk it. The day we went they had three different seating times, 11:30, 1:30 and 3:30.
