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.

Good lunch spot

Stopped here on way through during long drive holiday week. Special was BBQ sandwich and it was good. Food was good, service was okay. We were in the off season so staff was pretty much 1 person.

Stopped by for lunch, found the place under staffed and not very clean. I decided to have the pulled pork special. The sandwich was ok but nothing special. The place needed a little TLC.

Thought this place looked interesting so went in for lunch. Very nice lady working there. Only one we saw in there and she did everything, took orders, cleaned tables, took payments, delivered food. First thing I noticed was it looked dirty. Cobwebs and dust over all the many many things decorating the place. Food was just ok, nothing special. I... More

Stopped there for lunch. Awesome pulled pork/beef special for Saturday lunch. Staff was very friendly. Restaurant is decorated in the 1800's spirit. Will go back again when we are in town

I had the "day's special" which was a fish which were the worst I ever had. The service was OK but the total impression felt because of the food.

I had the Meatloaf special and my wife had chicken fried steak. The meatloaf was good and my wife liked hers.

Someone in town referred us to this restaurant. It was nice, and the sandwiches are huge, but if you are looking for a salad, or light fare, this isn't it. This is where you want to go for a heavy sandwich.

Walking in, it looked like the food would be good. The customers looked chatty and happy. However, the staff was not friendly-we started to leave. They suddenly wanted to seat us so we stayed since we had some hungry little ones. They were completely out of burgers on a Saturday afternoon. This is when a planned festival has just started...

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
