We've been here twice (would've been more, but they were closed a few months for remodeling), the latest being this past Saturday night. You go here for the speakeasy vibe and bespoke cocktails. The bartenders are true mixologists. No store bought mixes here, as they make all of their own from fresh ingredients. We tried several different concoctions from the... More

Tucked in the back of this unassuming pharmacy is the resurrection of the "cocktail"! Called to this place by an article in 'Garden & Gun' magazine, I arrived in the early evening to enjoy the revival of something that has passed away: the concept of "the cocktail", among the real estate of an old, wooden drawer lined wall that once...

Old-fashioned soda shop atmosphere (featured in the movie The Help). Great burgers and milkshakes. They also have a unique gift shop area.

Just got back from visiting friends in Jackson and I requested that we go to Apothecary during our stay. I read a review about Southern cocktail bars with true mixologists and this was one of the recommend places. You enter through the closed Brent's Drug and go to the back room, through a heavy curtain into the area that at... More

The burgers and fries are not the best I've had, but the milk shakes make up for it. Brent's milk shakes put Dairy Queen to shame. Those oversize straws they give you are perfect. I've never had the breakfast but I want to try it. They have an after hours speak easy type of bar. Be sure to ask about... More

I had a good breakfast here this morning-it was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. I highly recommend the eggs in a basket. I am taking one star off because I tried to go the previous morning and it was closed until lunch time which was a bit of a bummer (and there was no posting on their Facebook... More

The absolute best hamburger in Jackson and the best atmosphere! The shakes are really good and so is the chicken salad!

Be prepared for your clothes to smell like a diner when you leave. Apparently the cook top does not exhaust to the outside.

I actually wasn't at Brent's, I was at Apothecary, but I'm guessing they charged my American Express as Brents! At any rate, the food was fabulous. I had tater tots with three dipping sauces, the one that left a lasting memory was the spicy ketchup. I also had the sliders which were amazing. My friend at the bar also made... More
