REVIEWS OF Dumplins Bistro & Bakery IN Tennessee

Danielle Hall

Great food, everything was delicious and really a quick service for lunch which we needed due to a appointment nearby. The desserts were simply amazing. All of the meal was fantastic and the place is really nice and I would totally recommended it to anyone. Our entire meal took about 40-45 mins with dessert and paying. Perfect!

Maurice Shamell

I literally drive by this place every single day since I moved to Jackson. I finally stopped in for lunch on Thursday. Boy have I been missing out! Best yet it's a local restaurant, which I love to support local businesses. The food was fantastic, plenty of choices and the host were super friendly! It's a nice hidden gem off Highland/Wiley Parker Rd you just have to check out!!

Carole Flood

Food is excellent. Unfortunately I can only eat their salads due to gluten alleegy

benjamin Stevens

Good food

Crump Crump

Husband bought me a red velvet cake for my birthday. Every slice we cut, the cake would crumble. Not happy. The cake was $50. Not worth it.

Judy Sanders

Love their food

Sunny Lloyd

Our waitress, Natalie, was wonderful. My mom had a lovely 3 cheese quiche, and my brother had roast beef, both dishes were very picturesque. Steer clear of the salmon, though. It's the only seafood option on the menu, and it was subpar and dry. Service is certainly a 5, but food options for those looking for something other than quiche are drastically limited.

the creature of the deep

Very nice restaurant, very good food, nice atmisphere.

paul riddle

Nice bakery. Great local place if you like fancy food like kisha

Donna Thompson

Best strawberry cake ever

Tiana Esperanza

Lovely little bistro with DELICIOUS baked goods. They've pies, cakes, cookies, etc. Their dinner menu is tasty as well. Strawberry seems to be their signature, they bring out both honey butter and strawberry butter with soft rolls!

Johnny Morris

Good food

L. Dpt

Really delicious food, lovely wait staff. SLOW KITCHEN!!!! We were there for an HOUR BEFORE GETTING FOOD FOR A LARGE GROUP. On our second visit, party of 3, it took over 30 minutes to get our salads. So that’s why the one star taken off. I really love their menu. It’s CLEAN! It gets crowded for lunch so go early and maybe you’ll get faster service.

Daniel Rivera

Love the atmosphere and the food is always good

Bobby Greene

Best food and people. I have seen and had in a long time..

Desiree Zimmerman

Good food, homemade treats. Large selection to choose from

Dean Sanders

Little pricey but very good food.

Mary Davis

Great cakes, pies and food also kind people

Wanda McMackin

Not too good

Rick Davis

I do not understand what these folks did to that soggy apple dumpling i had....over very common.

Alfred Custer

I went with a large group, but the service was excellent. Dumplins is known for its desserts, particularly for its strawberry cake, but the rest of the food is delicious as well. The table rolls are *fantastic*; I also ordered shrimp & grits. They were loaded with bacon & the shrimp were gigantic. The dish was cheesier than it is normally served, but still very tasty. During the meal, the owner introduced himself and thanked us for choosing Dumplins. I'll be back!

Phyllis Daniel

Great food, charming setting!

Jamie Rosenthal

Picked up an excellent lunch to go and a coffee. Food was delicious. Was a perfect find.

Jacob Veazey

Fantastic food. We arrived a little close to closing time and the service was quite awful. Two very friendly girls but they hardly ever came to the table. Took 10 minutes to take our drink and never got a refill. The meal was satisfying and I would recommend it to others. Also the cake was incredible and there was a variety of options. 8/10 will go again.

Brian Myers

Stephanie Boyd


Monika Thomas

Good food friendly service

Kelley Shelton

One of my favorites

Patric Saulter

The cake they made for us was exceptional. The rolls were soft and buttered, and when dipped in their honeybutter they tasted amazing. Worth the drive and price.

Monika Perry

Food great, service solid & bathrooms nice & clean.

Tabitha Cavaness

Great food and great service.

Jesica Collins

This was an AWESOME place to stop and eat lunch on the way to Pigeon Forge! We even got to meet the owner!!

Jackie Benton

Returning customer for the cakes. My family always knows where their birthday cakes are coming from. So good!!

Jeffery Barnes

Menus were dirty floor was too, chicken tetrazenie was the size of a side dish, and very overcooked, consistence of baby food. Tiny half dish of dressing for an averaged sized salad. Bread was oily and butter was some sort of margarine spread. Disappointing for the cost, save your money and go somewhere else.

All you'll need to know about Dumplins in Jackson TN, is that they're probably the best kept restaurant secret in the area and they have been for decades. Their food is great. Really good. Take a look at their menu and pick something at random and you'll not be dissappointed. My favorite has always been Chicken and Rice, so is my wife's but usually one or the other of us picks another menu item so as to encourage conversation over lunch. If you're local to Jackson and haven't eaten at Dumplins then you aren't talking much with regular folk in the know. If you're traveling through or visiting Jackson, drop in for delicious rolls and a reasonably priced meal. As a customer I've ordered just about every menu item over a 25+ year period and have loved every one of them. I wish they'd give me a discount for this review because I'd dine there more often if they did.

Robert Hutchins

My wife and I went here for lunch. The meal started great with warm bread and strawberry butter, but after that it went downhill quick. We both ordered chicken and dumplings that were very bland. I ordered water and got tea. The Waitress was very slow and inattentive. When she finally brought us our check I just handed her my credit card because I was in a hurry. That was a mistake. They charge wrong order to my card. We won’t be going back.

Mowna Per

Very cozy place.

Elaine Fowler

We were sat back by bathroom. Black girl came back to door. She could not open. She seemed panicked. Said"I have needed to go to bathroom for 15 minutes." Went back to her table and watched bathroom door. When woman finally left, she.came hurrying to bathroom. Stayed in there a while. Then came out. We were waiting for our food all of this time.Worst visit and service I have ever has at.Dumplings.

Marilyn Street

Beyond fabulous, excellent staff, food beyond delicious and we will be back

Donna Hall

It was nice


I love the food. I only gave it a 4 star because anytime I order to go I never get all of my stuff. Today I got to my hotel and they did not give me my salad dressing.

Linda Coffman

Dumplins is a little unusual but I love it's Southern charm. If you like salads, casseroles etc, and fruity tea, you will love this place! Steak and potatoes person? Go to a steakhouse! And there's an abundance of great desserts.

Karen Wilkes

Rolls and pot pie delicious but green bean were not warm.

Rick Clough

great menu, fantastic food and service

Ashauntia Paulette

Food is good, but a little bland. This place has a nice atmosphere though.

Mrs. Turner

This is my favorite restaurant in Jackson, hands down! My sister and I meet here (oh, but how we need to meet more regularly!) on her lunch hour. We usually order whatever is the special of the day, and it is indeed special. It has the ambience of a tearoom, but - wait, guys - the heartiness of a bistro- a la regular restaurant, too. Generous portion sizes, attentive service. Love this place!

Tena Victorian

Wonderful place to eat!! Great food.

Linda Reedy

Our first time there! Very good will come back!

Mark L

Great place for lunch.

Robert Smith

Good food..small portions

m a thomasson

They had awesome looking pies and chk&dumplings were fresh. Everything was a bistro

Glenn Parrish

My second visit & my wife's first. We both had salads and thought they were excellent. We also had cake for dessert and they were both very good!

Stacy Rogers

Awesome service and food

Ronald Rahrig

We were traveling though Jackson and saw the billboard for Dumplins. We stopped for lunch and I must say we were not disappointed. When we walked through the door, there was a case of deserts like I've never seen. I had the soup of the day, problano-cheese and the southwestern wrap which I loved. I could have made a meal of the sweet rolls we were served before our lunch arrived. The portions were great. I will be stopping there again when I pass through Jackson.


Loved the food. We visited on a Saturday, so I had the special, which was Roast Beef. I also had the mashed potatoes and green beans. The roast beef was 3/4 of an inch thick, and I easily cut it with a fork. Everything was great, including the service. It has a pleasant atmosphere. We'll definitely be back, because there's so much on the menu that I want to try. The desserts are great too!

CS Brown

The rolls and strawberry butter were good but my Thai chicken and peanut salad was just ok.

Newton Molloy

Great food and superb service

Edward Henry

Amazing food. Always great service

gail stone

Food was amazing!

JC Moore

Good food HAPPY people

Bruce Dennis

Simple but very good menu choices. Roast beef was tender and bread was fresh and warm. Great service and comfortable outdoor seating. Didn’t save room for dessert this time but the pies look amazing.

Lonnie Stanley

We were traveling and my wife saw a billboard for Dumplin's in Jackson Tennessee. Since we ended up spending the night in one of the hotels, we decided to locate Dumplins Bistro & Bakery. I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of food as most bakeries only serve sandwiches. This little bakery served a lot more than just sandwiches, my wife had Grilled Salmon on rice with green beans and I had Hamburger Steak with baked potato casserole and green beans. I also ordered a small side of chicken and dumplings to try. Our wonderful waitress brought out 2 rolls with 2 types of butter (one a strawberry spread and the other a creamy spread). Needless to say, all of the food was excellent. Since we were full, we ordered our cake slices to go. I couldn't make up my mind, so they cut a small slice of Carrot Cake and a small slice of Italian Cream Cake and treated it as one slice. I highly recommend Dumplins Bistro & Bakery to anyone traveling through Jackson Tennessee or who live in the area.

Judy Hebert

Excellent food for hubby. Southern, unique cooking. Not so much for me because I don't eat that kind of food. Salad just ok.

Jeffery Zachson

The food is pretty good but it's all ruined by the guy with the glasses they have up front, he's always rude and huffs and makes irritated faces at you if you take longer than two seconds to place or pick up an order. He sighed and shook his head when I asked if I could add a slice of pie to my order and threw the receipts at me. Super disappointing and I will be letting everyone know to be wary of this guy.

Taylor Teel

Their cakes are the best!

Misty Mitchell

Delicious rolls and strawberry butter!

Lakesha Brooks

Nice service and good homemade food and the cake is to love for everyone of them.

Gina Hudson

Great food! Highly recommend the strawberry cake!

Helen LaFrain

Awesome desserts!!

A'nij Moore

Old fashioned, made from scratch, pie crusts!

Summer Daydream

The homemade food is scrumptious, & the menu has tons of choices. The desserts are mouth-watering & delicious! It is a clean, friendly atmosphere, located close to the interstate. Our family enjoyed lunch there.

Allan Phillips

Over priced and the food wasn't that good. Mashed potatoes were cold and they had just opened.

mavpack 69

Great environment. Great food. The rolls are fantastic, the soup was delicious. Its quiet in there even though its busy. Simply a great place to have a bite to eat.

Lawton Hatley

Holy cow! Found this gem on a roadtrip, and plan to stop on the way back home. Had the 3 veggie plate and the shrimp and grits after two baskets of rolls with butter and strawberry cream cheese. Then to top it off, took a slice of carrot cake and Italian cream cake for the road. And our waitress, Jessica, was sweeter than the icing! They close early, but oh so worth the stop.

Crystal Jackson

This place has excellent food. The desserts look great, although I haven't had any yet. Would recommend for quick lunch.

Jennifer Thompson

EVERYTHING I PUT IN MY MOUTH WAS AMAZING!!!! I cannot believe I have lived 45 minutes from this place for years and never knew it existed....I ordered the dumplins, salad, sweet tea, and 2 desserts. Yes, I said TWO!! When you walk into this quaint small town restaurant, you are surrounded with succulent desserts. They could have given me a spoon/fork and I would have been content to just sit and sample all the goodies in the entry area! The decor is so unique and inviting. I can't wait to take my daughters back for a girls trip. Don't get me wrong...the first time I visited, I pulled in on my Harley with my bandana and jeans on and fit right in as well. The food is perfectly delicious. The chef clearly runs the kitchen with creativity and flavor!! The dumplins rivaled my grandmother's (I hope she never reads this), and the coconut pie was THE BEST I have ever had. Oh goodness . I almost forgot the strawberry butter!!!! Words cannot describe the yumminess of this butter...not too sweet, perfectly light and creamy, absolutely addictive. I am going to ask If they sell it by the quart next time!! If you live anywhere close to this little gem, you've gotta get out and visit!!

chantel rojas

So delicious. Best rolls and strawberry butter. Good fruit tea

Adam Coons

Wendy Kaczmarek

Strawberry cake was very good. Friendly staff

Maria A Madden

The cakes are AWESOME! We picked up the birthday cake and chocolate during a road trip stop between Memphis to Nashville and they are nothing short of moist, cakey goodness! We didn't partake until we got home, but it was well worth the stop.

Warrington Pam

Love this place. Great food. And the cakes taste better than any around.

Deb Collar

Expensive...but very good food. The coconut cake is heavenly.

Carol Ryan

Very good dining experience at Dumplin's in Jackson, TN! Great atmosphere, friendly service and delicious, reasonably-priced food. Loved the yeast rolls and strawberry butter! Desserts were yummy.

Juliana Tisdale

Great food and AMAZING cakes!!!! The staff is always so polite and helpful! One of my favorite places to eat!

BOB Wadley

Our server was Johnathan C. He smiled the whole time! Very attentive. We were celebrating a flamingo-themed birthday. He served our tea in our goblets with flamingo straws. Hope he serves us again. We will be back. The pork tenderloin was very generous; I had enough to bring some home for my spouse, too.

James McClanahan

My family and I visited because they have a giant sign on I40 that states, “Best Desserts in West Tennessee.” Guess what? I agree. I had try several. I bought 5 of them. Chocolate Decadent Cake. Best chocolate cake I have ever eaten! Key lime pie. Delicious! Red velvet cake. Scrumptious! Coconut cake. Sweet coconuty goodness! German chocolate pie. I got this because YO frickin LO. It is chocolate pie with german chocolate cake icing. #NoRegrets

Sherman Golden

Good food and service

Reginald Hunter

Great food and great service. Definitely rates a return trip.

Vonda Bobo

April & her staff at Dumplins did an outstanding job catering our rehearsal dinner! Their attention to detail, professionalism, & promptness was refreshing as well as appreciated. The food was delicious! They don't do standard, they have personal touches such as homemade butter in 2 flavors, fruit tea in addition to sweet tea, gluten free options, & their cakes are the best!

Kk sain

We ate outside and was never forgotten about. The waiter was always outside checking on us, and we got our food on time! This place is great! Great customer service and the food is fantastic!

Angela Masinelli

The staff and cake decorator are absolutely amazing. I went there to do a cake tasting and I met with Janis. She did an amazing job of sketching my visions of wedding cakes I wanted and I even got to take the rest of the samples home with me. (They were very very generous portions). The owner even came and introduced himself and thanked me for coming and doing business with them. While I didn't eat any of the food besides sampling cakes, I will definitely be back along with my fiancée and try some of their delicious smelling meals.

Judy Pratt

Great service, great food and easy to get to. They make beautiful cakes for any occasion. You can have a small family dinner or two people. Love the place.

Julie Arnold

Love their chicken salad with craisins and nuts...U can't beat their strawberry

Jane Frazier

Extensive lunch and dinner menu...the BEST rolls! Desserts look scrumptious, but I had the sweet potato casserole and could not eat any more sugar. Will be back!

Oce Tyson

The black bean burger either needs to be changed or the price needs to come down. The black bean burger patty seems like it came out of a Morning Star box that you could get from Krogers, and the bread - though nice - is almost three times thicker than the patty, and I mean both top and bottom layer. I wouldn't go for it. The fruit tea has always been my favorite drink, though on occasion it can taste a little watered down. The pitchers should have lids to avoid having anything fall inside since it's so open. Their rolls have changed at least twice, and the flavor of their butter isn't as strong or flavorful as it used to be. I could sit there eating their rolls and butter with their strawberry soup, which I don't think is even available anymore. Here's to hoping it's just because of the season and not because it's discontinued. I'm sad that, when I last visited, cheesecakes need to be ordered ahead of time to have it for dessert. I had hoped to get a slice to help make up for my sad meal the last time. Nothing doing. I'm not saying 'don't go there' I'm just saying I miss how it used to be. I do agree that the atmosphere is wonderful and charming, especially on a rainy day and the lights are dim and warm. Would be a nice place for a cozy date to rekindle a romance or connection, especially when business is slow and there's only a handful of customers.

Ms M

The food didn't taste as good as in the past.

Brent Hood

The food was good but not great. Service was hood but not great. I enjoyed my food but not sure if I will go out of my way to go back. The pies and cakes looked good. I may go back so.etime for desert.


Precious. Quick and easy plate lunch place with top shelf desserts. Good prices and good variety for a group. They only get 4 stars because they only brew the sweet tea and subject southerners to boxed tea if they order unsweetened. Come on, really!??!!?!? Is fountain boxed tea allowed below the Mason-Dixon line? Did you smuggle it in?!?!

Debra Partelow

Wonderful place for visiting with family and friends.

Yvonne Alley

Super Friendly, serve meals as well as had bakery! Chocolate dessert favorite with its pecan crust. Worth the trip!

Becky Parman

Delish food and great service

roger lindsay

My piece of cake was too small.

Jonathan Hunter

The clientele is mostly grey haired ladies, but don't mind them. The food is wonderful. Filling but not too heavy.

Sailor john

I've lived here 10 yrs and kept forgetting about Dumplings and wanted to find some place different for our 55th ann. and at the last minute I remembered and what a treat. Good home cooking and comfortable atmosphere and prices were reasonable. Best kept secret....

Dave Smith

This place use to be real good I don't know if they changed owners pretty disappointed food was very bland ...The deserts save them from a one star !

David Thayer

Good service. Creative dishes. Friendly atmosphere. I was the only male customer. A bit fru-fu for my tastes.

Joyce Brown

Janice was great. She was very detailed in everything that I wanted done for my husband surprise Birthday Party. Thanks Janice!!!!!

Akeisha Jones

I love Dumplins! They have the best cake. It is always moist. The staff is always pleasant. One of my favorite spots!

Ann Gwinn

Marvelous place! Great food and the bakery items are yummy! Friendly staff too.

Joseph Crone

Wonderful place for lunch in Jackson. Very warm reception from Scott, as he sat down and genuinely had an interest in getting to know my father and I. The rolls and strawberry butter were wonderful, and the lunch was delicious. Leave room for desert, their cakes looked wonderful!

Amanda Gilliland

The food came out quickly and was really good. The cake was delicious!

Alice O'Dea

Great food in reasonable portions!

Delores. Westbrook Westbrook

Excellent service luv the food

Francis Rasel

Everything was excellent

Lauren Liebowitz

It's cute and sweet, a place for southern ladies to have tea and cake. The food is good and the service is friendly. If you go, and you have room for dessert, the apple dumpling is especially delicious. Any salad or sandwich with strawberry is a good choice too. And those rolls!

tilda pearson

Great place to eat, good food.

Doyle Baker

Love the food and the atmosphere.... also great service, the folks are very attentive and friendly.

Alicia Menard

Wonderful salads, great service, and the kids devoured the rolls with strawberry butter.

Cassandra Pritchett

Great desserts and cake!

Melanie Taylor

The shrimp was good and the desserts are the best

S Wallace

I saw their billboard on the interstate and decided I would stop for some chicken and dumplings. They were some of the best I've ever had and the portions were enormous. They had homemade rolls and numerous homemade soups to choose from . All of them fantastic. All of their pies and cakes are homemade and I had to sample a piece of chocolate cream pie and it was fantastic as well. I highly recommend you make a stop, very short distance off of the interstate. Next time I come through I will be stopping again. Service was absolutely fantastic!

Marty Hardin

Great dumplings and desserts

Glenn G

Driving to the Smokies. Noticed a sign for Dumplins. Great place just off I40. Food was wonderful. Wife had dumplins. I had pork tenderloin. I’ve never had food delivered so fast. It was fabulous. Recommend to anyone.

Fleur Delis

I had the shrimp and grits and it was VERY good, along with the service. However, the sweet tea had soured and wasn't so great.

Beth Simmons

Great food Love the fresh rolls, strawberry butter, and sweet tea with each meal I order.

Nathan Bowen

Delicious dinner specials, but the real draw is the cake. It's very thick and moist and definitely worth the price!

Christyn Parker

My favorite place to eat in Jackson. It's like they have a team of sweet little Nana's cooking everything in the back! Seriously though, you can't go wrong with anything on their menu, I personally recommend the chicken and rice soup and a slice of any of their cakes.

Hope Warnock

Service and food was delicious! Will definitely come back

Colleen Rogers

Good food, great service, not the best cake though.

Brent Simmons

Loved the atmosphere inside. The chicken and dressing is amazing and so are the rolls. Will be eating there more often.

Andrea Neely

The homemade rolls, strawberry butter and shrimp & grits were fabulous!

Regina Abbott

Great tasting desserts.

Claire Petry-Redman

Food was wonderful. Perfect portions for an affordable price. Unfortunately, service was a little slow in the evening when we went for dinner.

Grace Carrington

Oh boy this place is good .. close your eyes and pick a dessert at random, you won't be disappointed

Debbie DeBerry

Great alternative to traditional take out food for dinner. Picked up casessole, quiche, veggies and that wonderful bread for tonight's dinner. Yum

Henry Alexander

Friendly staff, prices are reasonable, clean and good location, food is good

Shell Parker

Best Oreo Cake!!

Virginia Cole

I have never been disappointed here. Food is great. Service is terrific. Super place to eat and wonderful atmosphere. Desserts are awesome.

Amy M

Saturday early lunch with the boyfriend. My shrimp & grits were rich & delicious! Side salad was very fresh & house dressing was good. His shrimp wrap was on the lighter side and had great flavor. Their rolls with strawberry butter... heavenly!!! It can hard to find a place that does a good job with both light & heavy options, this place nailed it!
