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!
Always a top notch dining experience. Food, service and hospitality exceeds your expectations. Snackbar remains the standard for a group dinner for us when returning to Oxford.
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.
Snackbar is always exceptional. The food, the drinks, the wine list, the Happy Hour, the best oysters any where, the small bites, the desserts, the service...All of it. Exceptional. Always.
The food was absolutely delicious. The chef accommodates my vegan friend and made a delicious dish even though it wasn't in the menu. My snapper was so flavorful.
Due to it being graduation weekend, the restaurant was extremely busy. However, our waiter was still able to make us feel pampered. The food was unique, delicious, and beautifully presented.
snackbar is always good! great to meet up with friends and family, and the food never disappoints!
Excellent. Great food. Good service. Couldn't have been better
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.
Wow! We have been to Snackbar before and it has always been good but something has changed. Without question this was the best meal we have had in four years visiting our daughter at school. They have really taken it up a notch. Highly recommend a visit.
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent drinks!
One of my favorite spots in Oxford, and the Big Bad Old Fashioned is a must have!
The Snackbar never disappoints. Amazing food and great service. Love the ambiance.
Very good! They even accommodated a guest we had show up at the last minute. We had a great evening.
Great meal last night. I had the Mahi Mahi Yassa and it was absolutely "on point"!
Fabulous meal! Superb oysters! Great atmosphere and wonderful service. Truly one of our favorites in Ox.
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 delicious. Our server was very attentive. The only downfall was the lighting. It was very dim. Many were using their phones to read the menu. Snackbar just may be our favorite restaurant in Oxford.
This is a great place to go with adult friends, parents and college kids, or even a special date. Great atmosphere and even better food. Nice drink bar and raw bar. It's a great place if you want something special, but fun too.
Very popular restaurant. Can be very crowded in the later evening if you like that scene. For our business purposes, the earlier hours were great for quiet conversations.
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.
Great hand crafted cocktails, oysters on the half shell and delicious French onion soup combined with attentive service makes this restaurant one of our favorites!!
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.
Excellent food and service for a group of 14! Would not hesitate to try again.
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.
Food not as good as it has been in the past. Oysters and dessert was great.
We enjoyed our evening and everyone said how much they enjoyed the meal.
Nice chatting with bartenders about the signature cocktails while waiting for our table. Waiters were very attentive. Good experience
The Snackbar is a great place. It fits into the mold of the great food we have in Oxford and the understated names of things. Great food, service and ambiance and bar.
it was wonderful, as it always is.. we had a wonderful Valentine's Night meal
Great menu, food was delicious and service was great. Highly recommend a trip to The Snackbar if you are visiting Oxford.
This was our first time here and the menu was really interesting and creative. There were a lot of dishes we would have ordered and we'll definitely return! We didn't try the relatively expensive oysters, but they looked great!
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.
Snack Bar is not to be missed on a trip to Oxford, MS. Excellent service, creative cuisine, and relaxed atmosphere set it apart from other local restaurants. The varied menu is always changing. The bar is outstanding.
The Snackbar is the best spot for a romantic evening. The rich wood and soft lighting create a superb ambiance for dining in Oxford. The cocktails and wine list is more than adequate, and the food is always well prepared and prompt. I have never been disappointed.
