I've been here several times before and I swear I have a different experience every time. The food is never terrible, but has been between average and amazing. Funny thing is, I've never tried one of their hand crafted sodas. Good value for the price though.

it was like taking a step back in time when entering Brents. The milkshake was a great. I stopped in this place so my son could experience what it had to be like when his grandparents were young. It is like taking a step back in history. We didn't eat a meal; however the milkshake was incredible.

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

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!
