“Some of the finest dining in the state. Fantastic menu. Known for their shrimp and grits. Make a reservation if you can. For smaller groups, sometimes I have some luck eating at the back bar on busy weekends. The bar upstairs is a cool scene. The balcony has some of the best people watching in Oxford”

Bar
“Snackbar has been a long time favorite for us and the truffle frites are one of the reasons why. The head chef was recently awarded the James Beard Award so you can count on a delicious dinner. They accept reservations, but you can always sit at the bar and the oyster bar without one. ”
