This restaurant deserves a good rating, but since it's not available, the average will do. We enjoyed a lunch here on a busy Tuesday. The space is small and tightly packed with tables and antiques. Two rooms hold tables. We found it charming. We were...More

The owner was smoking meat and it smelled so good. Unfortunately that did not translate into an edible dinner. We ordered the hickory smoked pork dinner. The meat was dry and overcooked. The vegetables were canned from a food service company and completely cold. We...More

The food was good, the hostess/waitress was very nice. The guy owner/kitchen help was a bit grumpy. A lot to look at inside.

Excellent food & service during a very busy time. The pulled pork sandwich has a wonderful smokey flavor.

Located in the historic district, this restaurant's décor takes you back to a time when life was not as hurried. The reuben sandwich is delicious although I must admit I only have room for the half-size rather than the full size portion. German chocolate pie...More

Absolutely, there are many delicious options on the menu. BBQ sauce comes on the side so you don't have to have it. I highly recommend this place!

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.
