    Southern colonial effects meet modern flair to create a beautiful interior at Park Heights restaurant. White linens, and attentive service, are complimented by a relaxing atmosphere that allows for quiet conversation. The menu is creative and varied enough to please all tastes, with eye-pleasing plate presentations. And the food will definitely satisfy, with culinary skills meeting Southern tastes. Don't miss the Park Height's version of Fried Green Tomatoes, a memory-making starter. And, if you're attending anything at the BanCorpSouth Arena, Tupelo's Park Heights Restaurant is a perfect location to start the evening. Plenty of parking, between the arena and the restaurant, makes for an easy "park once," dine, then walk to the Arena.

    Everything was really really good! They taste and texture and accuracy of the food was excellent! Service and servers were great! But I had to find something to mention, I would have preferred the food to be brought out as I was finishing, I think the server thought we were going to be able to finish all of each item, so they continued to wait before bringing the next servings. Really enjoyed it, this wasn't are first time to visit, and won't be out last, thanks.

    My husband and I finally got a night away from the kids and went to Park Heights. We'd only eaten here once before. The atmosphere and food were excellent! Our server was really friendly, but he wasn't as great as the server we had had the first time. The first time we were asked if it was a special occassion or anything & were brought bread immediately. This time the server didn't speak much, and we had to ask for bread. I also had to ask for refills. I still would have given him 5 stars though, but he wrote the tip in on the check himself and totateled the amount! I have never seen that before, and we didn't say anything but there were only 2 of us and he gave himself a 20 percent tip! It will be a while before we go back because of that.

    crestdweller79
    Dined on 5/25/2013
    The rooftop ambience, view, food & service were all excellent until the elevator quit working. Entrees were delayed in arriving & were not hot when served. After a visit to the ladies' room, Mother was unable to climb back up the steep stairs. There was never an apology for the broken elevator or an offer to reseat us downstairs. There was no offer to comp Mother's entree. Then my ordered 2nd glass of wine never appeared. We wanted dessert but were afraid it would be an hour or more arriving, and so explained to the waiter. The she crab soup was to die for, lobster appetizer & charcuterie plate superb. The crab cake entrees were good, but cold when served. My Chardonnay was perfect. Dessert sounded good. We will try them again.

    We love the owners and their family. They are great people and eat at several of their restaurants but we did not have a good experience. The she-crab soup was too salty. The initial drink order took 15-20 minutes, we were never offered bread, and the service was pretty lousy. We sent the mega-bowl of soup back and the chef sent back a cup of a different soup which was apparently a passive-agressive move on his part. The server noticed it and said he would change the charge to a "cup" but didn't. I never create waves-I just don't go back. The ambiance is great there and the entrees were actually very good. Just being honest.

    I really enjoyed the Park Heights experience. I had a perfect New York strip with French green beans and blue cheese grits, then topped off the night with the creme brulee for dessert. If you're looking for a reasonably priced white table cloth dinner in the Tupelo area, Park Heights should be at the top of the list.

    Very good food and efficient service, which became a little too chatty toward the end. Liked the table by the window. Overall, a decent experience, but not a very good value for the price. We were not surprised by the prices, but felt a little more should be delivered for those prices. In this town, however, probably one of the top one or two choices available.

    This was our second visit to Park Heights, and like the first, it was a pleasure to dine at this restaurant. The food is consistently exquisite, flavorful, and well presented. The portion sizes are more than adequate given the price, selections, and quality. However, on this occasion, our service was rather slow and refills of our drinks were rarely offered. We noticed a few other tables seated after us that ordered similar fare from different servers, and received their appetizers, salads, and meals before us. So, the experience was good, and we hope our next visit will be better.

    Having dined at this restaurant a few times, it is easy to understand why it is one of the best places to eat in Tupelo. The food selections provide a variety of flavors not commonly considered yet prepared to their best. At times, the service has been a bit off, but the quality of the dinners help overcome this.

    The food was such a disappointment. I had the Mahi Mahi and it was over cooked with no flavor. My partner's dinner was so salty that she was unable to eat her dinner and my father had the special of the night which was a swordfish and it too had no flavor. For the money that we paid it was not worth it. This town does not have much to offer when it comes to variety of different restaurants and I was hoping Park Heights might change some of that but it has failed to impress. This town needs something besides steak houses and buffets. Ambiance was great. I do believe in giving a restaurant a second chance so I will try the place again and hopefully it was just a bad night for the kitchen

    It was our thirteenth anniversary, thus we wanted a special evening, which Park Heights was not only our choice, but our "first time" there. And we (my husband and I) can't express it enough with how well we enjoyed it. The food and services were excellent. We were especially impressed with the selection to the "well-lit" opentable regarding our request made due to wife's nightblindness. We will definitely visit Park Heights again -- and we'll not wait until the next anniversary! :)

    I had family visiting Tupelo, so we went to Park Heights to show them probably the best restaurant in town. The atmosphere was great,and quiet. The service was first rate. My mother asked for a baked potato with her steak (a special request), which the server said they could do. When her steak was served the potato was hard and not done. When the potato was replaced and her plate returned she found the steak to be inedible. Two of my Uncles who were visiting from out of town also had steaks which were not good. We were seven(7) for dinner. Fortunately four (4) of us had meals which were very good.
