Fun place with college kids

Took our son and two friends. Casual laid back place. Raw bar and a nice main bar. Kids had the fried chicken special and loved it. Good drinks and cold beer.

Heard about this place while reading through the list of James Beard nominees. A friend of mine in New Orleans had been nominated as well. I have family who work in Oxford and were familiar with the City Grocery group of restaurants. So, we decided to give SnackBar a try. I wouldn't really consider it a snack bar. Ha. From... More

My wife and I frequent Oxford and Snackbar has been our favorite restaurant for the last couple of years. Nice, cozy atmosphere. Tonight was pretty much par for the course. Oysters are always great. Grilled amberjack -with cauliflower in tomato broth- very good. The baked flounder was tough, but good flavor. Accompanying eggplant stuffing was excellent. Toasted pound cake with... More

Had dinner with a crowd...and it was very enjoyable. Selections varied from a hamburger to lamb...and everyone said food was great. The service was good until at the end ...several people got their bill... but several didnt. Had to find server so we could pay and leave. Not a big deal...definitely would return.

Great spot...sister restaurant to "Big Bad Breakfast". Walk in the door sit at the Oyster Bar or the Main Bar...food is wonderful. Bartender service needed help...a little slow getting drinks and food. Had to yell at them like I was in a bar to get water, order food, and pay check. Other than that this food is GREAT!

Alex the head bartender does a great job; nicely made classics and some insightful creations. Nice to find craft cocktails in this area.

This is not your "meat and potatoes" kind of place. It has a very unusual menu, with small plates that are wonderful appetizers, to larger plates that are very unusual but always seasoned to perfection. They have an oyster bar with fresh oysters flown in from all over the country. For many people that frequent all of Oxford's restaurants, this... More

At a wine tasting in Oxford I asked for a suggestion for the best restaurant in the area. Snackbar was the immediate response and my friends were right. What a good find and certainly a reason to return to Oxford. While the food was excellent, the Margarita, made by Alex, the barkeep, was by far the best one we've ever... More

Appetizers, sides and their French Onion Soup make for a delightful meal. Their terrines and pates, which are on the small plate portion of the menu are tasty and creatively presented. The soup portion may have shrunk, but is still great. I had Country Style Pork Terrine, Fried Chicken Thighs, and a turnover for desert. My wife had the soup,... More

This was not out first meal at Snackbar but it was definitely one of best! Over the last 3 years coming to Oxford to see our boys we try to eat here 1 night of each trip. We love this restaurant for a lot of reasons; consistently good food, nice people, etc. but as we all take on the new... More
