I had the BBQ pork and my wife had the chicken salad. Both were very good. Service was so-so. Prices are very reasonable. Convenient location right on Main St.

First place we visited when we got to Hannibal. Had delicious Beef BBQ sandwiches. Served quickly by friendly staff. Had heard about their pies but none of the three on the menu that day were of interest.

We shared a sandwich which was suppose to be turkey & ham but we had a hard time finding the turkey. For the price I would suggest another location.

It was recommended that we visit this restaurant to try their pork tenderloin and pie. We ordered the pork tenderloin as an entree with their specialty pie (German Chocolate). The people at the next table ordered the same. We had some similar and some dissimilar...More

We tried this place- when the food was delivered it was lukewarm to cold. All of us were totally unimpressed with the food. We even noticed that another couple who had come in after us, left without eating their food. Wished we had gone to...More

We loved the atmosphere and decor. The walls are decorated with mementos of the Steamboat age. Service is great. We had sandwiches and pie. The food is home made from scratch, even the ice tea and the salsa (which are yummy). The pie is freshly...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.
