This is right on Main St. and I had hoped for a great lunch special. It was terrible. The catfish was so awful I spit it out of my mouth. There were 3 vegetables served with the lunch and they were okay, Green beans, red...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

Nice family restaurant. Meals like mom would make. German chocolate pie is famous here. Very tasty. Salad bar could be a bit larger or have more offerings on it.

Walking on Hannibal's main street at noon, we spotted Ole Planters and decided to get a bite to eat. The tempting smell of sauerkraut filled the air when we came through the front door. I ended up ordering a bratwurst and kraut on a homemade...More

I ate dinner here during the evening. The meal I had was the vegetable and potato plate and it was good. Nothing too special, just good hometown food.

We had catfish and it was good. Just not exciting. We three of us would rate it average. Interesting dining area. Staff was pleasant.

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.
