Great outdoor seating, when you can get it. Terrific service. Very busy place; a Jackson favorite. Worth going for their innovative salads.

We had to go to Jackson, and we knew that we had to go to Walker's Drive-In for lunch. The weather was perfect, so we ate outside. We had the Walker's Crab and Chips and the Walker's Cobb Caesar. Both were delicious. It was super busy, as always, but the service was outstanding. If you find yourself in Jackson, do... More

Delicious food and a great atmosphere. Located in an old drive in restaurant, the food is nothing like a drive in food. The restaurant is small so reservations are a must. The service was perfect!

The menu in this restaurant is just so far removed from the exterior of the building and the name of the restaurant. Venture inside and you will be richly rewarded. The menu draws on local food and ingredients but adds lashings of genuine creativity. For example, crisp fried breaded oysters with Brie cheese and apple slaw - yum ! And... More

Don't let its name 'Drive-In' fool you. This is a topnotch restaurant located in a converted and restored drive in restaurant. It may be a tight fit for some (there is a detached overflow area) but it did not detract from the excellent food and great service. The four of us enjoyed seafood: flounder, Nantucket scallops and snapper, the latter... More

This is one of my new favorites in Jackson. This small quaint restaurant really does it right! From beginning to end we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and the staff was excellent. Our server Walt did a great job, was very knowledgeable about the dishes, how they were prepared, and seemed very sincere about helping to make your time at Walkers... More

This is a hip hot spot in Jackson based on our recent Monday night dinner. We were able to get a reservation for Monday on Sunday afternoon... so if you're local and looking to get in... Monday may be your best bet. Note: the Mississippi state legislature was in session, so the crowd was made up of mostly professionals... plus... More
