Neighborhood gem and a great spot for locals. The portion sizes are generous and the service is friendly. If you go, the $2 Martini Lunch special is fun for anyone currently not working or on "sabbatical." The chef is also open to substitutions and Keto-diet swap outs, which is nice. I have only been there for the warm, casual lunch service. Dinner may have a dressier ambiance. I look forward to that as well - along with sampling more traditional Southern fare like shrimp and grits. The outdoor patio is also a draw in the warmer months.

The food was amazing. The crispy Brussels were a great starter. The meatloaf tasted like something I would get at home. All the food was amazing. The service was exceptional!

Great brunch spot for Sundays. The large mimosa's were an excellent find. Staff was excellent and the food was modern southern. Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. Not super fancy. But super good and fun.

The management staff was very rude. Not accommodating to our guests and they kept talking down to me even after I called in advance to make arrangements and they didn’t fulfill them. I won’t be coming back!

Delicious food. Service was good. Noise level I rated down not because of anything under the control of the restaurant but more so due to a very loud person at the table next to us...her voice and laughter was obnoxious

We have loved this place in the past. Unfortunately the quality of the food has declined. Appetizer dishes were luke-warm and felt like they were leftovers from much earlier in the day. The chicken sandwich is our go to, but this time was sloppy and felt thrown together with little effort. The staff is typically very friendly but not so much lately.

This was my first time dining at Tupelo Honey. I was very impressed with the hospitality and the quality and presentation of the food. I really liked the fried green tomatoes on grits though I felt the tomatoes needed to be slightly more tender. I enjoyed the fried chicken and waffles presentation, but felt the sriracha honey wasn’t sweet enough. The meatloaf was good and I liked the glaze but it was a little bit on the salty side. It was still delicious and I was happy I ordered it. I almost regret not getting the Shrimp and grits because I think that would have been fantastic. Hopefully you guys will open a place in Washington state where I live, preferably either in Seattle or Bellevue, WA. I would absolutely recommend Tupelo to a friend!

Second visit and it was nothing short of amazing! Quick service, everyone is friendly and approachable, the chicken and waffle combinations are absolutely nuts!!! But you have to try them. The $2 martini deal is great. We love chatting with the bartender. He’s always a delight. We also love the decoration and the water glasses (who found those glasses, we want a set for our home!). The noise level is perfect. It’s like you’re in a cafeteria but you can’t pick out any one conversation and no one can really pick out yours. Very comforting. Thank you! We used your geo tag on IG so I’m sure our friends will be stopping in soon.

Terrible food. The country fried chicken was undercooked, the orange juice was a joke, and the waitress couldn't fill our water. Did not get that popularity.

Service was excellent....only complaints: the Mac and cheese was dry and my friend's catfish was completely raw, and no manager came over to speak with us. That didn't settle well with me, but our server was very nice, and the food overall was good.

We were taken in about 10 min ahead of our reservation time. Menu is great with a lot of options, something for everyone. Food was delicious and quickly brought out. Service was excellent and our waiter was not overbearing. Could probably have used a few more options on the wine list for 1/2 price bottle night. Was an enjoyable evening out with our adult son.

Food was decent. Some of the items aren’t available during the week so that’s lame. Service was ok considering it was Wednesday. The only thing that grossed us out was the bartender not using gloves to prep the drinks. He was touching all the garnishes with his fingers and not washing his hands afterwards. During COVID-19, that’s a no-go. I ordered a Bloody Mary and didn’t enjoy the side items with it.
