Our family got together for a special birthday for a sister that had passed recently (it was her birthday). There were 12 of us and we were put in the other building (downstairs) from the main restaurant. The food was served at best room temperature (including appetizers). The service was horrible. The soft shell crabs were cold and greasy. My... More

I can't add much to the other reviews. The food and service were excellent and the setting was fun. We were with friends who were local who pushed to get us a table in the original room which was great. Can't wait to go back!

I am in a 4 week trial with out of town co-counsel in the 2nd week of trial. They have eaten everywhere Downtown. Took them to Walker's for dinner last night. Ordered the soft shell crab appetizer. One lawyer from Phoenix had never had soft shell crab. He was blown away! Entrees were just as good - filet, redfish and... More

Enjoyed our visit for the excellent seafood and atmosphere. Place was originally a drive in now serving high end meals. Very small area in main dining room but the place to go if you can get in.

I really did not know what to expect at Walker's. Being my first visit, I was totally surprised and quite satisfied. The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff was friendly and quite attentive. I would recommend Walker's to anyone visiting or right at home.

Walker's continues to serve the best food in town. It is always our first choice when we want great food and authentic hospitality. What I enjoy most is their consistency; it is always first rate.

In town for work and was recommended to go to Walker's. Managed to get in on a Wed night at 6:30 with no issues, but if we had been any later we would have had to wait. We did the calamari and gazpacho. So fresh and so good. I had the seared tuna. It was fantastic. It is a bit... More

Walkers is a local restaurant with incredible cuisine that is tasty, colorful, and nicely presented. The Staff is friendly, helpful and attentive but not intrusive. The menu is innovative and extensive but not overwhelming My selections included Bar B Que fried oysters that had a light batter and placed on a red cabbage bed. The spices I will leave to... More

Went for dinner solo on a Thursday night without reservations. Was seated at the bar, directly across from the kitchen. This gave me the opportunity to observe the staff at work and most meals went right by me. The team here functioned well together, there was clearly a great amount of camaraderie amongst the staff, and they all had each... More

We went to Walker's expecting good things (given Trip Advisor reviews). Our family who live in Jackson have often praised the restaurant as the best in the city. Unfortunately, our experience was not great. Service was slow (1 hour wait for entrees on a Thursday night), the dining room was freezing, and the noise level was prohibitive for conversation. Oh...
