“Disappointed”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Went to Walker's on the way back with girlfriends from the beach. Relied on Reviews from this site and called ahead for a reservation. We were seated fairly quickly on the patio. We waited about 10 minutes for a server to reach our table to drop off menus and another 10 to come back and take order. One person had a salad which was excellent, 2 of us had scallops. Server said there were 4-5 per plate, they came out with three. Smaller ones were delicious, but one oversized one was undercooked, I think due to size. Sent it back after flagging down waitress who came back and said chef said it was cooked correctly. It was totally raw in center and non edible. Not impressed with attitude of both. Crabcakes were excellent. Would I stop again? Probably not due to service.

“Taste of Jackson- Dont miss it!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

This place is a diamond in the rough in a town that has a few, this is the best one.

The food is eclectic and sometimes exotic. The chefs are awesome and really mix it up. The atmosphere is tight but friendly. I have been to this rest 20 times and have had something different each time. The app tamales are the bomb and cannot be missed.

Eat anything that they killed and you will be impressed. The seafood, steak, elk, pork, duck and other varieties of animals are well prepared and presented like you are in NY or Paris.

The wait staff is very nice and the owner-maitre de are very friendly and can accommodate you without res. But- I would reco getting one anyway.

The place is pretty small, so it may be a little tight. I have done big groups there and they do it right.

It is expensive. While ent for work, I can spend 350 on 5-6 adults that drink a lot.

DO NOT MISS WALKERS in JACKSON!!

“Lunch Today”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

I was in Jackson Mississippi today and stopped in for lunch. The place was packed inside and outside. Appeared to be mostly locals and everyone seemed to be enjoying their meal.

I ordered the Tamales (turkey) and they were terrific. Four Tamales along with split peas and rice.

I highly recommend this restaurant.

“A MUST in Jackson”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Lovely atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff, SUPERB dining! Mussels and calamari amazing. Scallops and "gigged" flounder beyond compare. My traveling companion's comment, "I wish I was as rich as this food." We loved every bite! Nice wine selection and good cocktails. Will definitely be stopping in again any time we are near Jackson.
