Serious Breakfast -- same menu/kitchen as BBB without the wait

We tried to go to Big Bad Breakfast, but the wait was 30+ minutes so we stumbled into the Snackbar (yes it is a bar) next door and discovered that it is the same owner and chef and uses the same kitchen as BBB. The catch is that there is no table service for breakfast, so you have to snag... read more

The restautant has a cozy, romantic atmosphere. We were there when it was busy, but there was no problem with the noise level. The food was delicious, service was efficient, and the price was good for the quality of food served.

Snack bar is part of Chef Currence's "restaurant empire" in Oxford, Mississippi. It's hard to get a table on a Friday night, but it's definitely worth the trouble or the wait. On this visit, the three of us had Steak Frites, a Shrimp dish, and Poussin [rock Cornish hen]. For appetizers we had Trio of Beets and half dozen of... More

Came here during LSU football weekend, it was packed and had a great vibe. We were a party of four and everyone got small plates and for the most part everyone enjoyed them.

By looking at the shopping center this restaurant is in you would never guess how chic and wonderful "Snackbar" would be. Great food - great atmosphere - great service - definitely a place to put on your list when in Oxford.

Very misleading name. Far from a snack bar but fine dining. This is always one of the better meals in Oxford.

I had the cheeseburger with regular fries. The cheeseburger had something on there that I didn't like, it kinda had an over powering taste, maybe it was the spicy mayo? Tasted like it was horseradish, which I don't like. Not too sure but this place is very pricey and fine dinning attire too! Check it out if you're into new... More

If you want great drinks and great food and atmosphere, this is the place to go in Oxford! The drinks and food are kind of pricy but well worth it! Nice classy place to go. Definitely need to try a " Morticai's medicine " great strong drink!

Snackbar is our "go to" restaurant when we visit our son in Oxford. The first few times we dined at Snackbar we were blown away. We made a reservation for 9:30 on Friday before a football game and weren't seated to almost 10:00. No big deal as the bar staff is AMAZING. Most of our party of eight had the... More

Have been to Snackbar a few times before and have never been disappointed with the food quality, selections or service. Getting a good table or booth has been difficult, at times - because this place is very popular on a Friday night, which is our preferred dinner out time. We had beets three way as an appetizer and I, additionally,... More
