We went for brunch, and the food was amazing! I tried the sweet potato blueberry pancakes for the first time, and I must say it’s a must try! The fried pickles were delicious as well. I will definitely go back here!

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!

Varied menu with offerings to suit almost every palate. There are vegetarian, salads, fried chicken, burgers, and sandwiches. The service was good and the ambiance friendly. I would definitely eat here again.

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.

Reasonable Sunday lunch but huge portions and rather weird flavor combinations in the bowls. The fried chicken is delicious as were the biscuits!

First time visiting, kids had been to the restaurant before so it was their recommended spot. The ladies enjoyed their brunch w/ mimosas. The biscuits to start off are a wise choice. As I like sriracha, the chicken and waffles w/ sriracha was tasty. Not hot, a nice spicy bite with the sweet syrup. I recommend visiting if you are looking for breakfast/brunch or late evening snack.

My friend found the blueberry waffles too sweet and would have preferred just blueberries instead of the blueberry/jam/syrup mixture. We loved the biscuits and I enjoyed the fried green tomatoes.

But what really made our experience was our server Liz. She was so kind and attentive and friendly without being too invasive or pushy. She answered our questions and made us feel welcome and had such a great demeanor it really made us enjoy our experience and made it a memorable meal

Sat outside on a gorgeous Sunday for my bday. The service was exceptional. The food - for the most part - was spot on. Fried green tomatoes, biscuits, sweet potato pancakes were all BOMB. Two different mimosas were delicious and strong. They fell short on the main dish - which was the same for both of us: the Fit to Be Tied Pickled the potato cracklins lacked any flavor, were undercooked, and weren't crispy; the fried pickles were wet and soggy; the pimento cheese was under-seasoned and a bit clumpy. Shame on this because a. it was the main dish, b. we both had it, and c. everything else was so damn good. I would never order that dish again.

I came here on Wednesday April 7th for my birthday and it was awesome. They were so kind and treated me like a princess, which was nice. Having my second quarantine birthday wasn't that great but they made it so memorable. I felt bad for the servers who were working because they were the only servers in the whole restaurant. Overall, it was so wonderful. We will definitely be back.
