Vish Bhatt is the chef at Snackbar. He's been recognized as one of the best chefs in the south and in the country, for good reason. Ingredients are top notch. The menu is strong. (It changes regularly.) The food is beautifully prepared. Most of the dishes are ostensibly familiar. That said, the seasonings often reflect, subtly, Vish's Indian heritage. He... More

Recently, the Snackbar, a restaurant owned and operated by John Currence, started serving Indian food on Mondays. The meal is called Thali and is composed of three or four vegetarian dishes, three dipping sauces, and some Naan [Indian bread]. Delicious and nicely presented as pictured in the photos. On days other than Mondays, their regular, interesting, menu is served.

Went for graduation. This is one of the top-tier trendy restaurants in Oxford. Had the lobster mac. The lobster was a bit sparse. It was tasty but not the best in town. If you plan on going to celebrate a graduation, Book early. For spring graduation they start taking reservations in January. We called in April or put on a... More

Perfect place for a fancy date night. Very romantic, elegant setting. Food is a french fusion. Very delicious! Cocktails are amazing, and the bar menu is always changing. Worth the visit just for a drink.

Had a dinner here for my son's birthday with a few of his friends. We had a party of 7 and were seated and served promptly. Cocktails and oysters on the half shell were great! Appetizers were very good also. But note, none of the portions are large so I do recommend getting a couple of courses. I'm told the... More

First, let me say that our server was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the food. That is where the positives end. I ordered the pate small plate and my partner ordered the steak frites. The "frites" were cold and soggy and the steak was decent, but not worth $25. The pate was not tasty whatsoever and overpriced as well.... 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

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... 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.
