For a restaurant enjoying a very trendy reputation, our meal here was ordinary--well-prepared, but not having the zip expected. The room is wood paneled and dramatically lit, like a very upscale English pub. The service was affable. My wife ordered the lobster mac-and-cheese (a signature dish of the respected chef) and I the special for the night, Steak Milano. The... More

Wonderful service, wonderful food & even better cocktails! I lived in Oxford for college and travel there several times a year. I must say that this is hands down my favorite Oxford eatery!

I frequented Snackbar as a date night/cocktail spot while studying at Ole Miss and add it to my "must-do" list, every time I come back for a visit. The offerings are superb and the seasonally changed menu creates excellent opportunities to come back and try new and wonderful things over and over. Snackbar offers unique fine dining with a touch... More

This restaurant never disappoints. The cocktails are excellent and there is a good selection of bourbons. The oysters are nice and fresh. The appetizers are varied and some quite spicy. The entrees are mostly fish and seafood based.

Don't let the shopping strip exterior deter you. This Bistro style restaurant is well worth coming inside. We have older children and it's everyone's favorite. We like croque monsieur, bouillabaisse, steak frites, Head Chef Vish's Indian dishes never disappoint. Best restaurant in Oxford.

Fronted by a vast parking lot and a strip of stores, you won't believe the "gentleman's club" environment inside. Tasteful, relaxing ambience. We had a dinner that was so good guests were comparing their dinners from one table to the next. Order, taste, share - all is delicious.

Snackbar is known for the fresh oysters, which are delicious, and the fancy cocktails. The food is very unusual because it combines the best of southern cooking with spicing from the Indian subcontinent. Every dish we had was fantastic. For example, I had fried catfish. It looked like classical southern fried catfish, but when one bites in, it has wonderful... More

Perhaps we just ordered the wrong thing - this restaurant has everything (almost) to get a 5-star rating: gorgeous decor, very cool decor - the bar area is great - and fantastic oyster selections! The only problem we had were our entrees. They were not bad, just okay - we had higher hopes. I ordered the Crab Carbonara special and... More
