Tasty lunch

Went to Oxbow for lunch based on a tip from a local. The food was regular American fare, but it tasted great and the prices were reasonable. Gets full quickly during lunch.

This chef-driven restaurant does amazing tuna tacos. The salads are great. Went in for the close location to the Sunflower Blues Festival, and was thrilled to discover this gem.

Had it not been for TA and the suggestion from a local store owner I wouldn't have found this place. From the outside entrance you cannot tell how awesome it is on the inside. Nicely decorated with a cool vibe. You walk up and place your order, self serve drinks and refills. They have a "bar" but appears they only... More

Great restaurant. They have unusual takes on southern style food. The owner and staff are friendly. A must stop when if you visit Clarksdale. They have spices, sauces, etc. you will normally not find in the grocery stores for sale. Great sandwiches and delicious soups.

We were in Clarksdale for a couple of days for some good music and hopefully some good food. Walking around the quiet streets of the town centre we came across Oxbow. We didn't know what to expect, the menu was small but it was a good dining experience. The meals, tuna tacos and chicken south west salad, were tasty and... More

We were in Clarksdale for 5 days and overall the food we had in town and the region was a big disappointment. This place however was a breath of fresh air. Young creative chef with some simple menu items, good ingredients and well prepared. We had lunch one day and came back a second time. Great tuna tacos and tuna... More

If you want to enjoy food that is as good as it gets? Then please stop here! When we walked to the restaurant we immediately walked into a lineup outside the door. Right away I knew the wait would be worth it. The wait wasn't as bad as I thought. They had us seated and fed before we realized food... More

Walked in to and out of several restaurants while trying to decide where to eat. Lunch at Ground Zero is good, but can be crowded. There were a zillion food trucks in the streets for the festival i was attending, but we had trouble finding a decent meal (we don't eat beef, pork, or junk food). Another couple in our... More

I'm lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel to Clarksdale more than once a week for work and if I can nudge out enough time before 2 p.m. I'll either call in an order an order to go or dine in. They know me by name and I crave their Tuna Salad. If I'm really hungry, I'll add a... More
