I think the title of my review says it all. If you have poor night vision, bring a flashlight as this place is very, very dark inside. Reading the menu can be a challenge as well as actually seeing your food. Perhaps their way of discouraging old people from dining there.

The head chef prepares some great items. The food is really good. The ambiance is nice and the bartenders are great. Some of the servers appear to be inexperienced and could use some additional training.

Overlook the location in a strip mall. This is a creative foodie place. I don't know how they come up with such innovative drinks and food ideas. The snackbar's menu changes seasonally. If you don't have time to go for dinner or can't get reservations, try the bar. Snackbar has some of the most creative drinks combinations that you can't... More

We drove over for the Ala v Ole Miss game and had breakfast at Big Bad Bfast and walked to the game. Afterwards, my son was hungry so we went into Snackbar. Even though it is in a strip mall, the have done a great job with the build out of the space. I had the short ribs with curried... More

The execution of the meal hasn't matched the menu description in three trips. I do love the atmosphere but have been disappointed by the meal three times now.

Executive Chef Vish Bhatt (a 2014 finalist for the James Beard Award as Best Southern Chef) oversees and inspires the creative dishes at this cozy restaurant with his exceptional blend of Indian and traditional Southern flavors. The drinks at the Bar are equally creative and varied and rival the libation experience at Patterson House in Nashville for inspired and complex... More

This was my first time to SnackBar and I found that the name is deceiving. This is more of a fine dining establishment that is more value priced. I enjoyed the atmosphere, the food, and the service. I would recommend but it is not overwhelmingly "anything" special. People "needed" reservations but no one had any...

I liked this place; my husband did not. They are very accommodating when you make strange requests like we do for cocktails. They also have oysters on the half shell, which I do not eat but looked good. They are famous for their lobster mac and cheese, which hardly has any lobster, but now they only have that one night...

Our family of 9 had dinner here this evening. The food at their sister restaurant BBB next door was great this morning but Snackbar was a huge disappointment. Portions are small, service was slow, and there is a $2 plate charge per person if you want to cut your own cake and serve it for a special occasion. Even in... More

First, let me say the food and service were exemplary at Snackbar. Tastes were subtle, well-controlled, beautifully seasoned. Service was swift and professional. I would definitely return to Snackbar. But...the lawyer sitting at the bar next to us nearly ruined our evening. He was loud and profane and, worse, consistent. Had he been home, preparing for court, our meal would... More
