“Best Hamburger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

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

“Best, thickest malt ever!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

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

“Apothecary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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 a fantabulous grapefruit virgin drink for me. They're real mixologist in there!

“Hate the Changes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I had not been in Brent's in a while and met some friends there today for lunch. So surprised that you are trying to change the atmosphere in Brent's. where are the hamburger buns (the real ones). I did not like the rolls that you were serving. That is not Bren't. where are the krinkle fries? Why mess up a good thing. where are all the ladies that used to work there. Brent's was a wonderful and fun place to go. I noticed that the customers were different than what it used to be. I am surprised that you want to change knowing that it was such a unique place. All of the photos are gone. I don't think we will be back. So sad. Also my hamburger was burnt and that is not normal. Also prices went way up. This is not the fun place anymore.
