“One word- tamales”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

The menu is pretty broad, and anyone should be able to eat here, but hands down, the tamales are the most amazing I have had in Mississippi. The place is pretty crowded around lunchtime. On pretty days this is not an issue because you can sit on the patio. The restaurant has a really casual feel, but you still get prompt, professional service from the friendly staff. Oh, and leave your diet at home, because if you don't eat dessert here, you are really missing out!

“Too much”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Pricey, but huge portions involved here. Had the soft shell crab entree. Folks, 2 crabs the size of your head is just too much! Get the appie and save some dough. We ate in the upstairs of the building next door to the main restaurant. Insist on the main building if you go here. More atmosphere and more of the old drive-in feel. This is one of Jackson's great restaurants.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Was in town for one night...thankfully I had a friend bring me here! Great food, I had the chicken Marsala with a crab meat risotto. Very very good! Risotto was very creamy. My friend enjoyed the shrimp and grits. Capped off the night with homemade peach ice cream and coffee. Great atmosphere and very good service. Our waiter was very nice and no mistakes! Will surely return.

“If you only have time for one place, this is it!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

This place was listed as #1 on Tripadvisor. We know why. Food was excellent and our waitress was fabulous started with the Walker tamales and they were excellent We tried the veal and the grouper. Prepared just as it was written and superb. You will spend some cash, but it is worth it.

“2 thumbs up”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Great food, great staff = great experience. We really enjoyed our visit. The redfish was excellent and the filet nearly melts in your mouth. We will be back.
