Downtown Jackson Treasure

What a TREASURE! It is located in the old Holland's building (for you old Jacksonians!). Nothing fancy, just great home cooking served by sweet servers. The desserts are homemade and fabulous! There are freezer boxes with entrees and desserts, too, for you to serve at home.

Maybe it's just me..... Seems that most the restaurants here in Jackson don't seem to serve fresh vegetables, they only reheat canned items. I believe that a non-chain restaurant should serve FRESH vegetables not reheat canned items. The food is OK, nothing special and service is ehhh, depends on the waitress....

I worked downtown and would have lunch at The Baker's Rack 5 days out of 5 unless they were closed! My husband and myself still go here for lunch occasionally. They have daily specials along with regular menu items. One of our all time daily special's favorites is the meatloaf. In fact, I don't even make it at home anymore... More

Went for breakfast/meeting. Was around 9:45am not busy but kinda dirty, maybe they got slammed earlier? Food was decent but never got refill on coffee. Waitress was nice but only brought drinks and food and didn't see again

My wife and I were driving through Tn. At lunchtime, she was reading her Ipad, clicked up Tripadvisor about restaurants in Jackson, about 20 miles away. She read one review about a strawberry salad that really got my attention. We found the restaurant and it was almost full at 1 PM. We did get a booth, we both ordered the... More

Consistency is important when you choose a local place and the Bakers Rack is tops in this category. Great food and desserts. NOTE: They now have added hard boiled Eggs to the Chef salads...........yum. Jackson's best VALUE restaurant

I ate here today on a lunch break with co-workers. I had been here once before and it was equally good this time around. The restaurant is located in town square area with some decent parking and well-kept sidewalks. The seating area is an eclectic blend of various style chairs and tables, along with some booths. I didn't care much... More
