    Food was very salty and several of us did not eat much of our food and didn’t bother taking it home. And that was different plates ordered. That was a huge disappointment. Service was great. Sad I probably won’t go back because of the food though.

    Don't order the Royal Red mac n cheese. Very small shrimp and definitely not Royal Reds. False advertising. It was also cold when brought to the table.

    I have been eating here since it opened. I can remember one not so good experience. Last night was wonderful as usual and my steak was perfect. The Butter Chicken was delicious and that Banana Foster was over the top. Another great evening at Snackbar. Oh, the oysters!

    Love the place, yet two of us ordered the chicken special, and it was grossly undercooked. Undercooked chicken is inedible, or at least it should be. Love their bar, but I would not dine there again.

    My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience on our two year anniversary here last night. From start to finish, Snackbar never disappoints. Anna Lee was our server, and her service was impeccable! The cocktails were thoughtful and delicious. We felt special and so well taken care of! The grilled cobia was out of this world. The entire experience was 100/100! Get to snackbar asap!

    Restaurant was packed while we were there. So service was a little slow but mostly comfortable. In one instance, I was served a bottle of ginger ale without a glass. I had to wait about 10 minutes before I received a glass. Nonetheless server was very friendly .

    This is one of our favorite spots in Oxford. The menu changes fairly regularly so we always get a new experience every time we dine here. The lamb neck fillet, duck breast, shrimp hush puppies and ginger meringue roulade dessert were all DELICIOUS! We love it!

    Snack bar had been my favorite restaurant for years but recently, the food has changed. The food was overdone; too many flavors and they did not blend well. The oysters were amazing and the wine selection was great, but the main menu just isn’t what we have come to expect.

    Food was delicious, highly recommend based on food and drink. The problem was the seating, 2 top table with bench seats on one side and chair on other side. Other 2 top table next to us is practically on top of us, felt like we were sharing a table with other couple. We actually laughed when they seated a couple next to us...it was ridiculous. There were 4 people on other side with a corner table, one person had to seat catty corner or server couldn't get through to deliver food. If we did go back would request a table without bench seating.
