Ranked #23 of 57 restaurants in Hannibal
Cuisines: American
Dining options: Reservations
Description: 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.

I had a sandwich here today which was good. While eating, I watched a young female employee sitting not far from me as she coughed repeatedly into her hands. Then she got up and started removing clean beverage glasses from a tray and put them on a shelf with others. Then she started drying silverware, all the while coughing into... More

Had delicious german chocolate pie here. My husband had raspberry cream and it was delicious. Service was fast, water was refilled, interesting displays on the wall. Every day there is another special. I would recommend it for a quick bite to eat while shopping downtown

the waitress was great but everyone was concerned with eating a birthday cake that the staff brought in then serving food. The salad bar was very limited.

First off this place was busy and gave a vibe of very disorganized. You don't know if you seat yourself or wait to be seated. Stood around with no one acknowledging us. Finally we just sat at an empty table. Server took too long to say anything to us. Food was ok. All sandwiches came with chips, which is a... More

Went on Father's Day and got there a little after noon. It was busy but many people were finishing. We stood in the doorway for 5 minutes. Neither waitress spoke to us. I walked by both of them looking for a table for our family of 4. We found a table after a couple left. We stood at the table... More

The BBQ pork and beef are good, but you have to go for the homemade pies. Selection varies but there is always a German Chocolate pie (if they haven't run out). The pies make up for any slow service you may get.

The night we were there, there was only 1 person serving, cashiering, working in the kitchen etc. so service was slow. The chicken fried steak was barely average. Probably wouldn't go there again.

Home-style dining which uses canned products. The food was good. The smoked meats had great flavor. Be prepared to eat some calories.
