Snackbar is known for the fresh oysters, which are delicious, and the fancy cocktails. The food is very unusual because it combines the best of southern cooking with spicing from the Indian subcontinent. Every dish we had was fantastic. For example, I had fried catfish. It looked like classical southern fried catfish, but when one bites in, it has wonderful... More

Perhaps we just ordered the wrong thing - this restaurant has everything (almost) to get a 5-star rating: gorgeous decor, very cool decor - the bar area is great - and fantastic oyster selections! The only problem we had were our entrees. They were not bad, just okay - we had higher hopes. I ordered the Crab Carbonara special and... More

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.

Thank J0Mark
