“Good Food in a Great Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Came here for lunch with friends on a rainy Friday. Located in the hip Fondren neighborhood (where part of the movie "The Help" was filmed), the ambiance is cool. The dining room is packed (I would recommend reservations especially at night). They have an overflow dining room next door, but the ambiance just isn't the same.Wait for the main dining room if you can. Vibe is 50's -60's. Food is modern Southern. The grilled redfish sandwich was very good. Daily lunch specials. Catfish on the day we wre there. Portions were generous and the veggies were really good. I would love to try it at night sometime.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The bacon, lettuce and fried green tomato sandwich was a treat. This is a very small restaurant. The interior has been done up in vintage fashion and is pleasant. The lunch menu was diverse, but the evening meals looked at bit pricey and fussy if you were to take young children.

“My favorite place for lunch or dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I went to Jackson for business on and off for a year and Walker's Drive In was my favorite place to go. Lunch is very good with a wide variety of sandwiches, salads and entrees. The Walker’s Chef Salad is the best. The dinner is even better with very good fish and steak dishes, I always ordered the fish dishes and was never disappointed.

“Redfish Anna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Light and rich finally come together in this heavenly but not sinfull dish. Big crab flavors and light buerre blanc strike the right balance.

“Fantastic place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

I took the wife out when there for a meeting and staying downtown. I found it on here btw. Anyway the reviews were right and it was great! The food was excellent, great service etc. I do not grade high either. The prices are a bit higher than some places but for what you get, it's worth it. The flounder was great as was the sea bass. We also had the Heath tiramisu dessert which was very good. One of the best places I've ever been to! Our server was Eric and he was very professional and proficient; a nice change of pace from what we get locally in Starkville.
