We had a fabulous dinner to celebrate my daughter’s graduation from Millsaps. We were seated in the little red brick building on the second floor. It was intimate and comfortable but a little noisy. Our server, Pace (I hope I got that right) was fantastic! We could NOT have had better service!
The food was absolutely delicious! I had the salmon with a side of truffle risotto and it was sublime! My husband had the lamb chops and said they were the best he has ever had in a restaurant! Everyone in our party loved their food! There’s some pretty delectable desserts, too! You will not go wrong eating at Walker’s Drive In!

We were visiting from out of town, and I was excited to eat at this place, having heard about it, but found it a bit disappointing. Our waiter was nice but disappeared for stretches of time. Our shrimp entree had fish sauce or another dressing not mentioned in the description that overwhelmed the flavor of the dish. It was noisy and busy, which was expected, and the decor is fun. I might recommend this to a friend but would also explore other options.

Walker's is by far our favorite restaurant in the Jackson area. The food is always exceptional as is the service. It is well worth the price. Their salads are always awesome. I had fried kale and it was delicious. We also have the fried oyster appetizer and they were some of the best we've ever had. We love Walker's!

The food was delicious and the servers were wonderful. The one negative comment I have is that the blinds on the window right beside our table were extremely dirty. Since they were inches from our food, this was unacceptable. But again, the food and service were fabulous.

The filet is without fail, always perfection. The sides are wonderful as well. Usually the service is impeccable, but this visit (we were seated in the building next door, not sure if that affected the service or not) the service was fair. lengthy time to have order taken and same for receiving our food. Of course we'll go back, their filet is the best!!

Pretty disappointed. $75 for a unimpressive four course meal. Plus, close to 2 hours for our entree long after others sat after us were having their dessert.

The steaks here were awesome simple flavor done the right way and surprisingly tender. The star of the show was the fried pie I had the apricot pear, and it blew my mind the crust was an original experience that reminds you of home made fried pie.

I wanted to take my husband for a pre-birthday dinner since we happened to be in Jackson for the night. He's never been and I'd havent' been in over 30 years as I left the state 25 years ago. The dinner was excellent. The Redfish Anna is a delectable as ever. Huge wine list. Great cocktails. Worth every penny.

The retro dining room cultivates an ambient evening, suitable for intimate celebrations and romance. Ingredients have been carefully curated and prepared with enthusiastic knowledge, which notably elevate the menu's classic offerings. The wine list presents affordable, yet quality and crafted options, making way for the budget-conscious to splurge on wagyu filets. And, to fruition, the front of house staff balance attentive service with aloof respect -- a rare showcase in Jackson.

Our experience at Walkers Point was exceptional from the moment we walked through the door. We were seated immediately (had reservation), our server Mary was friendly and attentive yet not pushy, and we continued our meal with glee from salad to entree to include a fabulous tiramisu for dessert. A memorable meal indeed as we celebrated my husband's birthday!

Walker's is the best restaurant in Jackson. Quite frankly, there is really no where else that can match them on the total dining experience. One small item that always impresses me is there instant willingness to change an entree's ingredients. You want spinach instead of grits, done; never a hesitation.

I'm always comforted to know that a great meal is just a short drive away from home. Our server, Mary was a gem and made excellent suggestions including evening specials, which was completely to our liking. We love Walkers Drive-In for the consistently great food, creative selection by Chef Derek, excellent service and the comfortable pleasant atmosphere like no where else. Our occasion was friends and family gathering to recharge our kindred spirits. Thanks for a great time and wonderful cuisine.
