About

We"ve married French Bistro with North Mississippi Cafe resulting in the Bubba Brasserie cuisine. The Big Bad Smokehouse pulls double duty creating the items for our charcuterie program and choucroute garni gets a second chance with collards and pickled peaches. Raw oysters arrive daily from all over the country adding a unique touch to the glass tiled oysterbar that anchors our lower dining room. Top shelf whiskies, an extensive glass wine program, and innovative cocktails round out an inviting and cozy bar setting likened to an "English Hunt Club."

Our party of 8 -- all visitors to Oxford -- loved our evening at Snackbar! We appreciated the great service in wrangling our large table, and it was such a treat to be at a restaurant where you can carry on a conversation. The food was wonderful: everyone ordered something different, and everyone was very pleased. So close to the Square, and with plentiful parking -- Snacker was a home run!

Don't let the fact that it's in a shopping center fool you. It's good food and a good atmosphere. Worth the drive from Southaven, MS for us!

Everyone in our family loves snackbar. I love the fish stew, (friday and Sat night special) my husband enjoys the fish and kids like Steak frites (truffle fries are insane) and croque monsieur. Good wine selection and interesting crafted cocktails.

We booked snackbar for my hisband's birthday dinner and had an amazing dinner. The atmosphere is cozy, the wait staff was impeccable, the drinks were unique and perfectly blended with the fantastic food. I received messages from everyone the next day raving over what a perfect night it was. Will absolutely return and highly recommend! Love!!

We waited over an hour for our food and it was a Wednesday night which didn't seem busy. There were several empty tables around us so I do not know why the long delay. The food was good/fair but the price was outrageous! We will not be going back.

Snack Bar always lives up to it's reputation of great food, service and atmosphere. Our out of town guests are impressed with the cosmopolitan atmosphere and the great food and wine offerings. The oyster bar is a favorite for appetizers. The price is comparable to other high end restaurants. We highly recommend Snack Bar if you are in the Oxford area.

I dare say this this is the best restaurant in Oxford. I think the chef allows himself more creativity here than at City Grocery, and the result is some truly delicious and inventive food.

Never a dull dish or evening here. Vish Bhatt has earned a James Beard Award whether he receives one or not. Our server was knowledgeable, helpful, and a joy to be around. The staff taking reservations were very accommodating, considering I changed them 4 times on Open Table due to the addition of new guests. Oxford is blessed to have such a fine establishment. Oh, and the food was outstanding.

The food was amazing, the service was superb. I only had 2 issues and I feel like "issue" is too strong a word. First, a table of men was seated next to us about halfway through our meal and I had to stop talking to my husband and wait for them to get settled in before continuing our conversation because these men were so boisterous. Not the restaurant's fault at all. Just rude, already mostly drunk patrons. But I was not about to scream for my husband to be able to hear me 2 feet away. Second, the air was so dry. Not something I would normally notice about a restaurant but it was so dry that we both started getting really stuffed up and our nasal passages started swelling closed. Otherwise, a great evening and a superb meal.

My husband and I both had the special. It was a red fish over their version of hoppin John. It was amazing. My husband got the oysters. The waiter did a great job of telling us the various types of oysters they had available. They were really good. I had the Pimms cup one of their mixed drinks and it was great as always. The service, food and atmosphere were perfect.

Usually all of my dishes are exceptional at SB. However, I chose the Wednesday special- a shepherd's pie with collards- and was disappointed. The pie was bland and the greens bitter. Yet the sweet potato and dessert were delicious!
Of course the service was great and the ambiance is always nice. Must've been an office night for SB (or me!).
No worries! I'll still continue to patron the SB but will stick to my 'old favorites' on the menu.

Wait staff and bartenders ranked high for service, but we were seated 20 minutes after our reservation time. hostess did not come to bar to touch base; we had to approach her to see about an update. Bar seats were super crowded. Difficult to get into seating and then wait staff could hardly get by to serve table behind

My only complaint is it is too dark in the restaurant. I would have rated it much higher but for that fact I could not. The food makes it very popular so it has that going for it but when you can't see the menu or your food it becomes very frustrating.
