This restaurant never disappoints. The cocktails are excellent and there is a good selection of bourbons. The oysters are nice and fresh. The appetizers are varied and some quite spicy. The entrees are mostly fish and seafood based.

Don't let the shopping strip exterior deter you. This Bistro style restaurant is well worth coming inside. We have older children and it's everyone's favorite. We like croque monsieur, bouillabaisse, steak frites, Head Chef Vish's Indian dishes never disappoint. Best restaurant in Oxford.

Fronted by a vast parking lot and a strip of stores, you won't believe the "gentleman's club" environment inside. Tasteful, relaxing ambience. We had a dinner that was so good guests were comparing their dinners from one table to the next. Order, taste, share - all is delicious.

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
