Our group of friends went to the JD Distillery and then to Miss Mary Bobo's for lunch afterward. Ann was our hostess and was very knowledgeable in the history of this restaurant. Plus she had that sweet southern hospitality.

Small town America with great food and atmosphere. As with previous comments a reservation is required but well worth it. Home cooking at it's best. A must do when visiting Jack Daniels!

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.

No. There are only two dishes that have Jack Daniels in them. One is a relish and the other is a baked apple dish. The whip cream on the pie has a slight hint of Jack Daniels. The rest of the food is good old fashioned home... More
