We took my parents there, with our children about 4 years ago. At that time, we had: butterscotch pie. It was made with chocolate of some type. I am wondering if ANYONE has their recipe, or if they would be willing to share it. My mother is going to be 75, and she RAVES about this pie and sends everyone in there to try it. I would LOVE to surprise her with this pie.
If you have ANY input, could you please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you SO very much
I love cafes with homestyle food, that you happen onto. This one is great. Home smoked meat was soooo delicious. We split the pies. They were great. Thanks for the great service.
I could imagine stepping back to the Mark Twain era.
Passing through Hannibal, stopped at Ole Planters. The guide book said homemade and they weren't kidding! I had smoked bratwurst with sauerkraut, others had smoked turkey, and smoked BBQ beef, all were delicious. They have a smoker out back! You get 3 sides corn, green beans, and red skin potatoes. Generous portions, all our entrees were $9.00. With the dinner you get a trip to the salad bar, which isn't much, iceberg, baby carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and a few other things I didn't get. Yes we got cans of warm pop, but we poured them over ice and they were fine. If I were in Hannibal I would certainly stop again, I thoroughly enjoyed my meal! Unfortunately no room to try homemade pie.
so bad it dont get a rating was there on 8/5/09 there were 5 of us i ordered the smoked bbq pork it was awfull the only way it got the smoke flavor was from liqued smoke and too much of that the german chocolate pie was dried out and hard the salad bar had lettuce tomatoes whole baby carrots and thats it it was bad as some of the veggies were not good the green beans cold and dry the soda was in a can and hot when i told the waittress she just shrugged her sholders my mom was with us her fish could have been used as a weapon as hard as it was would never go back
My husband and I ate here this past weekend and loved it. He ordered a full slab of baby back ribs expecting them to be the small ones he is used to. There was enough there for both of us. They were full size ribs. I had prime rib. It had a good flavor but was a little tough. The service was good and the atmosphere friendly.
We would not recommend this establishment to anyone. Service was poor, unfriendly and the staff seemed quite annoyed that we were even there. We wished we would have left before ordering. The food was cold and seemed to come out of a can. The children's meal looked more like dog scraps. The staff seemed more interested in sitting in the smoking room laughing amongst themselves. I can honsestly say that I can't believe Ole Planters Restaurant has a license to serve food.
NEVER AGAIN! The staff was smoking at a back table throughout our meal. The salad bar consisted of brown iceberg lettuce, carrots, rubbery celery, and average dressings.
The sides of vegetables looked as if they came from a can and had been in the pot for days. Chicken Fried Steak was burnt. Not much flavor existed in ANYTHING!
TERRIBLE experience all around.
Yes, the potato chips are from a bag, but the bbq sandwiches are only $6.00 to $6.50. I visited Hannibal for awhile, and judging by the constantly packed house at Ole Planters, apparently most people do believe it's not only good food but a very good value. Where else can you get a 12 oz. cut of fantastic prime rib for less than $16.00? The meats are hickory smoked by the brothers and the pies are made fresh daily. It's a down home restaurant with great food and great value.
