Old-fashioned soda shop atmosphere (featured in the movie The Help). Great burgers and milkshakes. They also have a unique gift shop area.

Just got back from visiting friends in Jackson and I requested that we go to Apothecary during our stay. I read a review about Southern cocktail bars with true mixologists and this was one of the recommend places. You enter through the closed Brent's Drug and go to the back room, through a heavy curtain into the area that at one time housed where the drug compounds were mixed. The bar back is the old wooden storage area and they serve water in old brown druggist glass bottles. The lighting is soft and the music a great mix of old classics, reggae and new classics that have a slight 60's vibe. The cocktails are out of this world! Pricey, but worth every penny. They have several signature cocktails or they can mix you up a classic drink. We also had their grill cheese which was amazing! This is not the ordinary white bread and american cheese of your childhood - this is grilled cheese that will make any foodie's taste buds dance. They have a new one or two featured each night and ours had lobster and goat cheese and the other was homemade pimento mix. If you are every in Jackson, check this place out in the hip Fondren neighborhood.

The burgers and fries are not the best I've had, but the milk shakes make up for it. Brent's milk shakes put Dairy Queen to shame. Those oversize straws they give you are perfect. I've never had the breakfast but I want to try it. They have an after hours speak easy type of bar. Be sure to ask about that.

I had a good breakfast here this morning-it was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. I highly recommend the eggs in a basket.

I am taking one star off because I tried to go the previous morning and it was closed until lunch time which was a bit of a bummer (and there was no posting on their Facebook page). I would recommend calling to confirm they are open before driving over.

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