Mid 20th century southern charm with a few updates to the standard drug store counter menu. The atmosphere is far more appealing than the food.

Walking through a closed diner to a speakeasy in the back? Totally awesome. But that is where it ended.... The drinks are all specialty and sound awesome but were just terrible. They were so strong and the in house tonic was swill. Place was packed and people seemed to be enjoying themselves so it couldn't have been all bad, just... More

I loved this place, it is like stepping back in time with the decor and the memorabilia. The food was great too, so glad we visited!

Was visiting Jackson this past weekend and had seen Brent's many times in the past. Got to stop in for a late breakfast. The decor has not changed in probably 50 years at least and is just absolutely CLASSIC DINER style. Loved it!!! Waiter was great and the food was good! If you like diners, this is a can't miss!!!...

The restaurant was scheduled to be open until 3:00pm and when we showed up at 2:15pm they basically gave us the "we're closed" look. Once we informed them of the time they let us sit -- we should have left. Ordered the chicken and waffles - the waitress returned and said they were out. It was pretty obvious they just... More

The first time I visited Brent's was as a newcomer to Jackson about 18 months ago. It was highly recommended for their burger and shake. The burger was very simple, but tasty and worth the few bucks that they charged at the time. The shake was excellent and would bring me back again. I returned just this week and brought... More

This place is great. I have been here about five times. The food is delicious. They no longer serve the frozen burgers. Fresh tasty food. Don't leave without getting a milkshake. They are the best around. They recently updated and have more seating. This place is one of a kind. A jewel for Jackson!

I've heard so much about this place, especially since the very recent 'remodel.' Um, if this place is remodeled, I'd have hate to see it before. I appreciate the history of the place and the use of original fixtures, which is why I won't be harsh. The food was good, but it IS NOT American diner food. There is a... More

I grew up in Jackson and remember when Brent's had the pharmacy and soda fountain. I must say I was very impressed when my wife and I visited Brent's on 8/9/2014. The change is amazing along with the offerings. Kudos to the owner and what has been changed to make Brent's a fine establishment with the traditional burgers PLUS a... More
