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...

It might be the best restaurant along I55 between New Orleans and Chicago. The food here is always top drawer, the chef is on point, and it's a relaxing place to eat. The BBQ fried oysters are addictive, the tamales a clever take on a Mississippi Classic, and the seared sweetbreads are fantastic if you like thymus glands. The watermelon... More

The service and food are wonderful and the buzzing atmosphere reminds of a Mississippi Gallatoire's!

I ate here last night. Let me just say this place is FANTASTIC. The service is wonderful and the food is amazing. We had a reservation and still had to wait. That's ok. They got us drinks and just said they would transfer it to our table. The portobello fries for appetizer are wonderful. This place is on the regular... More

We ate at Walker's this week for the first time...and it won't be the last! We have heard about this place for years, but never made it in. We are now kicking ourselves for missing out all this time. Walker's started life out as a a diner in the Fondren district of Jackson, which is now "the hippest neighborhood in... More

Invited my group of female friends here today for a birthday lunch. Love Walkers, but this was a very mixed experience. Service was slow (we were in the adjacent building) both as far as ordering and food delivery. I ordered a salad which arrived missing the main ingredient (chicken) and 2 of the other main ingredients. It probably would have... More
