Miss Mary Bobo's was a real treat. We sat family style with other visitors and had a fantastic meal. Ribs, chicken, okra,apples,potato casserole and more. Food was abundant and excellent. Ellen was a delightful hostess. Thank you!

Went here for lunch with friends from work. It's a small gem that was full of surprises! The food is served family style (you will sit with random folks). Meaning it's served on a lazy susan, it goes around to the left once for everyone to choose then it's whatever! Your hostess sits with you and tells you the story... More

If you are looking for a home cooked meal then this is a great place to go. Also while you are eating the waiter or waitress will tell you all about the history of Lynchburg. Pretty interesting! Must call ahead to book.

My husband and I decided to eat at Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding house since it was within walking distance of our tour at the distillery. What a pleasant surprise and wonderful experience. Because it is/was a boarding house, you are scheduled for a seating time and then quests are grouped and seated in the many different dining rooms of the... More

We reserved our 1:00 seating about a month in advance and it was well worth it! The food was delicious, fried chicken, pork with gravy, fried okra, Lima beans, creamed corn and a few others. Our table hostess was a wealth of local information and made the meal even more enjoyable. I highly recommend giving this place a try. My... More

Good southern cooking with a very friendly host. Family style dining, southern style, near Jack Daniels. A very enjoyable overall experience! Book well ahead. After, enjoy a tour of Jack Daniels.

I am thankful I married into a family that already had a tradition of going to Miss Bobo's. Wow what an amazing place! This is a family style (put the food on your plate and pass to the left) meal that is different depending on when you go. Our family goes at Christmas time and we enjoy the chicken, stuffing,...

We booked a last minute reservation for lunch during our visit to Jack Danniels. It has similar concept like Monells in Nashville, a family style dinner where you sit on a big table with stranger, you don't have to order, but food start to arrive one dish after another. The difference is you have a host sitting with you on... More

We ate here for our work Christmas Party. Our hostess was Joy and she lived up to her name! The food was really good and so were her stories. If you leave the table hungry then it is your own fault. Don't forget to leave room for dessert!

I took a friend to Miss Mary's for her birthday, and it was a wonderful experience. Family style dining with a hostess who is knowledgeable about the history of the house and Jack Daniel's Distillery. Food is wonderful, a true Southern dining experience. We were there the week before Christmas, and the setting is beautiful. Highly recommend! Must have reservations!
