My husband and I wandered in and were pleasantly surprised! The vintage furnishings drew us in. We couldn't resist a chocolate malt. The food was delicious as well!

Located in the hip retro neighbourhood of Fondren, this drugstore is a Jackson must-see! This was my second time here andI sat at the counter and I ordered the fabulous banana split. My vegan friend was offered a free banana as nothing there met with her dietary requirements. I love the decor in here and even the bathrooms are cool.

Brent's can be a flashback experience for many! I can't help but remember many similar experiences in many Cities and Towns growing up in the 50s and 60s. The Lunch Counter experience was very common back in the day, and going with Mom and Granny was always a memorable experience. Much of the Menu is recognizable from long ago and... More

Tried the all day breakfast on Saturday. Rather disappointing. Left out one of my picked 3 ingredients in omelet. No frills.

Always loved the breakfast at Brent's. Crispy bacon and REAL grits.(not instant like other places) You have to belly up to the counter and enjoy a real old fashion milk shake.

I had to visit knowing the movie The Help was filmed there. They are known for their burger but the friendly waiter suggested the chicken sandwich. It was the best chicken sandwich I've had in my life! Fries were crispy and seasoned. I will come back if I'm ever in town.

Our granddaughter who is a college freshman picked this spot for lunch. It was great. The place was packed, but service was prompt. We were 200 miles from home, but ran into people we know. Back home I talked to friends who went to Brents in the 1950's! One said his Dad was a pharmisist at Brents during the 1940's.... More

Had breakfast there on a Saturday morning mainly because the location was featured in the movie "The Help". They were short-handed, but not super packed, and the staff was wonderful, friendly and efficient. Traditional diner food. We had pancakes, bacon, eggs, and grits, and there wasn't a single thing that wasn't excellent. Food was hot, service was quick, and the... More

Seems like if you advertise closing at 5 and you get there at 4:40 the kitchen should be open. What kind of service is this?
