We asked a local for where they would go for dinner and they suggested Ole Planters. We could not have been happier. The restaurant had been there for years and its decor suggested this in a charming way. The dinners were a mix of locals and visitors. The dinning was homestyle and yummy. The meats were cooked to yummy perfection just like mom would do. As we were eatting the cook was bringing out freshly made pies which tasted as good as they smelled. One of the customers wanted to buy the entire pie it was so good. We loved Hannibal and this was the perfect restaurant to top off a day of traveling back in time and enjoying Main Street USA and the Mississippi as Tom Sawyer and his friends might have.

Great Original Burgers

Busy local restaurant suitable for lunch! Great cheeseburger made from scratch - no pre-made patties at this place! Good value.

We stopped to eat lunch at OLE Planters Restaurant. We had read about this restaurant on the internet and were impressed by the length of time they had been in business. We were very disappointed with the food. I ordered a hot ham and cheese sandwich. The waitress brought it to the table and the roll that the sandwich was... More

Staff is very friendly and attentive. Has a lot of character with historic and mismatch furniture. Many different entree options and DO NOT forget dessert. Had outstanding German chocolate pie and another piece of peach cream, both were fresh out of the oven!

This is what people think of when they are looking for when they imagine a place where the locals eat. Great food, great price, friendly service--exactly what the doctor ordered!

Stopped for an evening meal. I had the BBQ Pork which I thought was quite good. My friend had the catfish which she said was ok. I sides were average but I did enjoy my meal and would go back again.

This was recommended to us by a native. The bar-be-que beef was awful. This side dishes were average. My mother ordered the pie and it wasn't very good. They had just finished serving a bus load of people and some of them remarked that it was very good as they were leaving. Maybe they had run out of the best... More

Ate lunch here with mom and sisters. Food was pretty good, but they were short on help (and fortunately let us know). BBQ beef dinner was a hit with me.

We just got into town didn't really know the area and decided to have lunch here. We each had a turkey sandwich with chips, costing us $20. I believe that this place only gets one time customers, because one time is enough. The only good thing I have to say about this place was the service was okay.

Our server was lovely and all smiles, and my girls enjoyed playing I Spy with the old knick knacks on the shelves while we waited for our lunch, but the food was average at best. The BBQ pork was recommended, but I was disappointed that it had a strong liquid smoke/artificial taste. My mom's corned beef was dry and no... More

When I worked in Hannibal, this was one of our favorite places to go. The pan fried tenderloin sandwich on a hoagie with Provolone cheese served with potato chips and pickle. BBQ sauce, tomatoes and onions on the table. Finish it off with a slice of homemade pie and you're all set. You have to experience it for yourself!
