Ate here every day prior to retirement!

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... read 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

We try to eat here when in Jackson. Good food but strawberry cake is great as are all of the desserts some of which are enough for two.

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

Been to this place a few times. The first time it was great, the second time it was ehhhh OK. The prices have gone up a little and the portions weren't as big as they were. The food quality is pretty good, the service wasn't the same, so it's believable that your waitress can make your meal. Wil I try... More

This place hits the spot if you are craving a soup, salad, or sandwich for lunch. Try their strawberry salad or the grilled chicken wrap. Beware: When you go to pay for your meal, there are many tempting desserts at the counter! This is an affordable & delicious place to have lunch. They are open M-F, so they cater mostly... More

I eat there frequently and I haven't had anything that wasn't good. If you want rotel chicken, which is the lunch special sometimes, you need to get there early because they run out pretty fast.
