The food was fair - we had barbeque sandwiches. We didn't try the pie which we have heard is wonderful.

The service was great. Our dinners were very good and very big. The homemade pies were delicious. The only issue was the restroom. They had no toilet paper and the young lady was not concerned about remedying the situation. I was told "It is 2018,...More

The food here is okay, but not great. Portions were more than adequate and the flavors were good. The server was surly and inattentive. She made it obvious that we were interrupting her dinner. If she had been better,i would have given a more positive...More

After dinner at another local establishment, we stopped in for desert and each had a slice of pie that was recommended by the locals. Baked fresh in-house!

This restaurant deserves a good rating, but since it's not available, the average will do. We enjoyed a lunch here on a busy Tuesday. The space is small and tightly packed with tables and antiques. Two rooms hold tables. We found it charming. We were...More

Absolutely, there are many delicious options on the menu. BBQ sauce comes on the side so you don't have to have it. I highly recommend this place!

We asked a local for where they would go for dinner and they suggested Ole Planters. We could not have been happier. The restaurant had been there for years and its decor suggested this in a charming way. The dinners were a mix of locals and visitors. The dinning was homestyle and yummy. The meats were cooked to yummy perfection just like mom would do. As we were eatting the cook was bringing out freshly made pies which tasted as good as they smelled. One of the customers wanted to buy the entire pie it was so good. We loved Hannibal and this was the perfect restaurant to top off a day of traveling back in time and enjoying Main Street USA and the Mississippi as Tom Sawyer and his friends might have.
